Do you ever get frustrated that your curls don't look like the ones you're pinning on Pinterest? Maybe it's your curling iron! Every iron gives a different look so we've tested out all of our top sellers this season to show you the types of curls they give and to help you determine the best curling iron for you!

BaByliss Pro Miracurl

Babyliss Pro Miracurl

The Miracurl can be tricky to get used to at first, but don't get discouraged! Once you get the hang of it, it creates natural looking, effortless curls! This one is great because there are multiple heat and curl settings so you can achieve tight curls or loose waves. Oh! And it won't eat your hair - PROMISE!!

A new take on your typical styling wand! Don't be fooled by the flat model, this wand will give you extremely natural looking beachy waves. Plus it's super easy to use - just wrap, and go! The digital heat setting gives this iron a super luxe feel.

Kenneth Bernard Vibe Flat Iron

Flat Iron curls will always have a special place in our hearts, especially with the Vibe! These definitely take some practice so throw on some heat protector and take your time to master this skill on a Sunday morning. The more times you turn the iron, the tighter your curls will be. The Vibe is great for flat iron curls because of the vibrating plates that help to effortlessly move the hair through the iron!
