The 7 Best Rotating Curling Irons

By Emily Estep

If you've never tried one, the concept behind all the best rotating curling irons is pretty similar. You place a portion of your hair into the iron, press down, and the iron automatically rotates, providing a consistent and even curl all along the strands. Rotating curling irons come in a variety of barrel sizes, and many can even be used to create a range of styles. However, rotating curling irons are best for straight or slightly wavy hair types that don't easily become tangled.

If you have thicker hair, then you'll need an automatic curler that can get extra hot in order to hold the curl. Of course, on the flip side, if your hair is not quite so thick, you may want to find an automatic curler with some lower temperature options, since you never want to apply more heat than you need.

Another thing to consider is that automatic curling irons tend to create uniform curls around your head, so if you're interested in a more natural look, opt for an iron that can rotate in either direction. This will allow you to vary the curls, creating a curl pattern more similar to natural curls. Whichever way you decide to go, these seven rotating curling irons are sure to make curling your hair a whole lot easier.
