Curls are beautiful in all shapes and sizes, from beachy and boho, to big and glamorous, to tightly coiled or 80s ringlets. Whichever is your jam, it's time to toss away the straighteners and make the most of some texture.
Unknown to the untrained eye, the type of curling tool you choose will determine the type of curl you create, so it's important to know what to look out for. Will you opt for a wide wand (best for beach waves), or a chopstick styler (ideal for tight ringlets)? Do you want variable heat, high heat or super low heat? These are all important questions to ask yourself, and well worth it too, as there's a tool to suit your every preference.
From traditional curling tongs, to tapered wands and even some impressive innovations that will blow your mind (as well as your hair), we've rounded up the very best tools in the beauty business to suit every budget and hair type.
