One of the most confusing things for me in regards to hair is actually picking a curling iron! Straighteners were simple, I mean there was only one “type” of plate which was flat. With curling irons it was hard to decide which barrel size you needed. Actually no one really explained it to me I just guessed.
In fact a sad story of mine is I lost my babyliss curler, which cost me a dear sum of money and is forever misplaced 🙁 I really don’t know where it could have gone!
I’ve since replaced it with a Vidal Sassoon 1 inch barrel one I picked up cheap from K-Mart, but I wish I had consulted this image before I bought it.
This guide is really useful and shows you what curling results you get off each barrel thickness! I’ve always been a fan of waves over smaller curls, so I’m loving the top 4 thickness’s 🙂 Scroll down for my fave 😀
I found this guide thanks to TotalBeauty.com
I honestly really love the curls of the 1.5 inch barrel!! I love the soft waves of the ones bigger but I know they’ll start to fall into straight hair after an hour and I’ll be sad 🙁
Actually to be completely honest, most of the time I’m too lazy to curl my hair. My hair is naturally wavy + I have some perm left from maybe 4 years ago (yes it’s a long time but I think because my hair is naturally wavy maybe it keeps for longer?)
When you see my wavy hair on video it’s mainly because I normally tie it in a loop bun like this:
Yup, my lazy go to style that I wear to work to keep the hair out of my way. After you let your hair go though, it goes into some nice curls (and some retarded kinks).
I’ll be happy with this for now until I decide I need a new 1.5 inch barrel curling iron :)!! Also I may also be cutting my hair short, I promised a friend I would but I’m really scared O_O!! I never react well to short hair but I always yearn for it… what is a girl to do??
What is you favourite curl type :)??
Stay awesome :)!!
