Best Curling Iron and Curling Wand - Features CHI Spin N Curl (281) 876-2000
0 Items

When it comes to heat-styling your hair, if you’ve ever tried to achieve tight ringlets or the not-so-effortless beachy waves, you know that it takes the right kinds of tools. We tested some of the most popular curling wands and irons, and ones that are newer to the market. Our verdict? The best curling wand is the GHD Curve Creative Curl Wand (available at Sephora for $199), which creates pretty, soft waves without a fuss.

 All of these hair tools are perfect for tossing waves into a pin-straight style or for an elegant ‘do complete with cascading barrel curls.

CHI Spin N Curl Ruby Red

The CHI Spin N Curl Ceramic Rotating Hair Curler is the oddest looking curling tool I’ve ever seen. It’s one that makes you—dare I say—pull out the instruction manual. If it delivers amazing results, though, I don’t mind consulting the instruction manual before diving into a beauty or styling tool. The CHI is incredibly easy to use once you practice with one or two strands of hair, it feels very durable, and the mechanism it uses keeps you from burning yourself.

If you’re looking at the tool and scratching your head, we get it. Here’s how it works: Take a small section of hair and drape it over the open chamber, then press one of the arrow buttons (depending on if you want to curl toward or away from your head) and the tulip-looking device pulls your hair in and twirls it around a ceramic barrel to form the curl. When it’s done, the device beeps to let you know you can pull the iron away from your head, releasing your curl with it. Yes, you read that right: you’re curling your hair without any tugging, wrapping, or burning.

The downside of this device is that it only creates loose waves, unless you leave the same section of hair in the chamber for a second or third spin, or if you make good use of styling products. You may also have better luck creating tight curls if you increase the temperature; this tool goes up to 450°F (the highest any of our curling tools went to) but I used it at 350°F, which was on par with the setting I used on most of the other irons and wands. The CHI heats up in about 40 seconds and automatically shuts off after an hour.

If you’ve had negative experiences with traditional curling irons and wands, or if you have fine hair that curls easily without being held tightly to a ceramic barrel, I’d suggest giving this one a try.
