Curls are a beautiful but funny thing. If you were born with them, I'm willing to bet that at some point in your life you've wished they would disappear entirely. Meanwhile, those who came into the world with straight locks are prone to spending precious time and money on curling irons and digital perms. But, whether you've got 'em or you don't, using the right curling iron for big curls will create a smoother, bouncier set of spirals.
The best curling irons for creating big curls all have one thing in common: a large barrel. If you like your curls to be a little tighter and more shapely, opt for a 1 ¼ inch barrel. For slightly looser — but still big — curls, try an iron with a 1 ½ inch barrel. And, if you want your curl size to taper a bit, which creates a very natural look, you'll need to use a cone-shaped wand. Lack the hands of an expert stylist, but want curls that are very uniform in size? A bubble curling wand can do just that!
