Curling Iron Comparison

Hi, ladies! I curl my hair pretty much every day. If you see me with straight hair, I'm probably VERY tired, and you should keep your distance haha. On dirty hair days, curls are the way to go--this is also when curls look the best! I'm sharing with you today 3 different "tutorials" or "how-to" videos to compare each of the curling irons I own! They widely range in price, so hopefully this will be a great resource for what kind of curl you can get at different price points!


The video below is using the Argan Heat One 'N Only 1" barrel. This curling iron is incredibly affordable coming in at only $30. I purchased this baby in high school and it's still going strong! That just goes to show you that this thing is basically indestructible. After watching the video, you can find direct links to the products I use below it!

Tresemme Heat Tamer Spray / Batiste Dry Shampoo / Aussie Hairspray



Next up is the T3 Twirl Convertible 1.25" barrel curling iron. Now this is a much pricier curling iron option coming in right under $200, but things I love about it are that it heats up quickly, has the option for interchanging barrels and curls my hair quickly. I really can't think of any cons when it comes to functionality, but the barrel has turned a brown color, which is from products heating up and sticking to the barrel. That's only a bummer because it contrasts with the pretty white and rose gold colors. The video below is for softer, romantic curls!


Living Proof PhD Dry Shampoo / Kenra Hairspray


The last video below is for beach waves using the 1 to 1.5" Conair Infinitipro. This curling iron is less than $20 and you can find it at almost any store. I got mine from Target several years ago! These are my favorite curls to accomplish, but I tend to shy away from this method because it's time consuming with my long, fine hair. The plus side to these curls is that they will last me days!




Do you have any curling tips or tricks? Or any products I need to try? I'd love to hear about them!
