Best for: Variety in one

You say: “This is a really easy to use hair curler and I love that it comes with interchangeable barrells that can create pretty much any type of curl that you want. My favourite is the wedge barrell because it creates really nice volume and natural waves. The curler heats up very quickly and comes with a handy heat glove so that you don’t burn yourself. It twists smoothly and doesn’t get caught or tangled. I also love that the curls last all day.” -Eskimo82
