6 Curling Irons That Make Styling Long Hair Easier
If you have long, lovely locks, then you’re probably familiar with the strand-styling-struggle. Arm fatigue is real, and happens because you have to spend more time making your way down the hair. Thankfully, these six brands feature tools designed to make creating curls in long hair a breeze. (Photo via Andrew Toth/Getty)
Hot Tools CurlBar ($100): If arm, wrist, and shoulder strain are common when you do your hair, this unique iron might be your solution. It’s shaped like the number seven, which means you don’t have to hold it up as high. Translation: Get ready for a more natural, comfortable position when you settle into styling.
Beachwaver Co. PRO Curling Iron ($199): Cut your curl time in half with this rotating, digitally controlled curling iron. It was designed with an extra long barrel and a teeny clamp if you’re after more uniform coils. That said, it works wonderfully as a wand if you skip the clip.
Conair Instant Heat Extra-Long Curling Iron ¾-Inch ($10): Consider this your classic curling iron with an upgrade. The extended barrel is 14 percent longer than the average curler, making it a must-have for long-haired ladies. The small, mini spoon clamp makes latching your strands in easier and faster — score!
Drybar The 3-Day Bender 1.25-Inch Digital Curling Iron ($135): If you’re after smooth, long-lasting bends that won’t result in a fried, damaged mane, give this smart tool a try. The rotating clamp speeds up the styling process for long locks, while negative ions fused to the barrel give you a shiny, frizz-free look.
Pro Beauty Tools Professional 1-Inch X-Long Gold Curling Wand ($24): The extra long length of this curling wand will prove to be a game-changer from the first time you use it. Beyond being practical for your special strands, this wand heats up to 430 degrees in 30 seconds flat!
T3 Twirl 360 Motion-Sensing Auto-Rotating 1.25-Inch Curling Iron ($230): This high-tech tool does most of the work for you when it comes to adding waves, curls, and crimps into long hair. Once you clamp in your strands, the iron senses the movement of your hand and rotates to match it, giving your overworked arms a much-needed break and leaving you with glossy, bouncy waves for days.
