5 Best Curling Irons for 2020

A hair curler is one of the necessities you need for your hair, if you enjoy wearing curls or waves. However a bad or malfunctioning model will cause you more trouble than good. For starters, a bad one will burn your hair and cause hair loss. This is reason enough to invest in a quality model. On the other side, a good model will actually benefit your hair – almost every respectable company makes curlers, which ionize hair, helping it keep moisture inside.

The selection on the market varies by quality and price, and to help you buy the one with the best ratio of price to quality, we put together this list of 6 best models on the market.

This one has a unique designer style and look< and the ergonomic shape makes work with this device more of a pleasure than a chore. The handle here is especially good.  The temperature is regulated by a turndial, which makes for fluid adjustment of temperature. The maximum temperature is 450 fahrenheit, which is the highest recommended temperature for hair. The width here is 1 inch.

The timer feature of this device lets you curl the hair for exactly the same time all around, so you get consistent curling on all your hair. The maximum time for curling is 10 seconds. Then a vibrator goes off to tell you that you are done curling. When the device is heating up, an LED ring turns on and glows.

The device’s power cord is held on a swivel, so it does not restrict your mobility while working. The heating element shuts off by itself if it is not used for two hours. As a bonus you get insulated gloves shipped with the device. The maker gives buyers a three-year warranty with this model.

Pros:

  • Excellent heat-conducting abilities and consistent styling results
  • Dial is very good for getting just the right amount of heat
  • Dual voltage ability makes this the best for traveling

Cons:

  • The grip is very nice, but it is not for everyone. Some may find it slightly unwieldy

This too is a professional model, and its width is 1.25 inches. The device has 50 different heat settings, from the lowest to the highest, and this allows for smooth adjustment. You can find just the one you need. The ceramic coating on the blade is also enhanced by the unique Sol-Gel, which protects the hair from direct damage.

The iron is notable for heating up rather quickly. The barrel is made of titanium – a very good material for this. The titanium also opens the gate for Nano Titanium, which is a patented brand technology.  Nano allows the blade of the device to emit ions, which protect the hair during work and actually assist it in preserving its natural amount of moisture.

The biggest point of this model is how it makes the hair look curly without ever frying it.

The device ships with three exchangeable barrels. One curls, the other spirals and the third adds volume.

Pros:

  • Titanium Nano makes this device beneficial for hair
  • The Sol-Gel coating prevents damage to hair
  • The price for this model is actually very good for a professional level curler

Cons:

  • The grip is rather slippery and can not be considered ergonomic

Dyson is known for expensive, but very reliable and effective solutions. The curler works using a digitally controlled motor, assembled by Dyson specifically for this device. It lets you safely curl hair, and also wave, smooth and dry it.

The motor is needed for drying the hair at the same time as it is being curled. The small machine uses the Coanda effect to a great extent, in order to wrap your hair around the device’s barrel. This gives especially great curves and waves. And you do not need a clamp or gloves.

The device mimics the blow-drying a stylist does, by making the hair adhere to the barrel and moving heated air past the strands.

The barrels have a width of two inches, but two more 1.6 inch barrels also come with the model.

The new barrel attaches with a single click. The cable is attached by a swivel, so it does not restrict the user’s motion.

Pros:

  • You get 4 different barrels, and they are easily exchangeable
  • The Coanda effect is used to immediately dry the hair as it is being styled
  • You will never have your hair damaged by overheating

Cons:

  • The price is probably the only con to this model, but it should be expected for Dyson

This device is shipped with 6 replaceable blades. All of the blades have varying diameters, and the biggest is 1.25 inches wide, while the smallest is 0.75 inches.

The tourmaline ceramic grants the user a steady stream of negatively charged ions, which have been proven to effectively moisturize hair and prevent heat damage and dessication. Also tourmaline heats up very quickly, and in less than 30 seconds your curler will be ready to work.

The device is equipped with a display – an LCD screen, on which you can see the current temperature.  Two keys are present to raise and lower the temperature. The maximal temperature achievable is 430 Fahrenheit, while the lowest is 140.

It is safe to use this one with any of the two common voltages, so this enables the user to safely travel with it.

Pros:

  • Very good price, which does not come at the price of quality
  • The screen, besides making temperature selection easier, also contributes to the stylish design
  • The temperature never goes above 430, so you are never in danger of burning or melting your hair

Cons:

  • The glove shipped with the device turns out to be uncomfortable

The ceramic blades of this model are infused with a mix of beneficial materials, such as argan oil, nanoparticles of silver and tourmaline. There is also titanium, which produces a steady stream of ionized particles. These particles are beneficial for hair, as they help the hair to keep water inside. But the other component are no less beneficial – they help the hair lose its static charge and look sleeker. The blade also never grabs or pulls the hair.

The models width is 1.25 inches. The device has no need for buttons – the temperature is adjusted by rotating the device’s end. There are six temperature presets, from the lowest 265 to the highest 450 Fahrenheit. The temperature shows up on the LCD screen.

The barrel heats up very quickly because of the unique materials. The device shuts down in an hour of non-use. The wire is attached by a swivel, which does not restrict the user’s movement.

The dual voltage makes this applicable for traveling

Pros:

  • The screen is very convenient, both for seeing the temperature, and as a design element
  • The composite material of the blade is very beneficial for the hair
  • Is sparing to hair – never pulls or snags

Cons:

  • The grip cannot be called ergonomic and tends to slip out of the user’s hands
