So a couple of things to keep in mind when selecting a curling iron, is we need to find the iron that best suits your natural texture and your wave pattern. The larger the barrel the looser the curl, the smaller the barrel the tighter the curl. The second thing you keep in mind, is to really find an iron that feels good and then you can maneuver well.
So with curly hair and a curling iron, all you really want to concentrate is on the hair that you actually see. You don't need to get up into the roots, so actually it's much quicker to style. So it's really beautiful about curly hair, as it's the most forgiving, you can be the most random with the iron, and it ends up looking really beautiful and natural.
So if you've straight hair and you want to use a curling iron, pin it down and allow to cool, the heat allows to change the shape, but cooling down actually locks it in place. So the longer you let it set, and cool, the longer it's going to stay curly. And that is your hairstyle secret.
