I use a chi ceramic straightener to curl my hair.  I have really straight hair and this is the only method that holds a curl for me.

I have a Hot Tools one that I love. I never thought my hair was capable of curling until I started using it. You can buy it on Folica.com – they always have awesome coupon codes! 

If you want a more beachy look – I have another that is “wavy” down the shaft and it is awesome as well!

I’ve always had really good results with Conair products. I know they’re not super expensive or fancy like PP suggestions, but they’ve always curled my hair extremely well and the curl has stayed. I have both a 1 1/4″ barrel curling iron and a curling wand from Conair and they have not disappointed!

I only use a curling wand. Not sure of the brand but I much prefer it over a regular curling iron.

Westwood:  I second the suggestion of a wand! Not sure why, but they work much better on my hair than traditional curling irons.

I have a curling wand as well and I was amazed how well it holds the curl. I curled my hair with a regular iron for my engagement pictures and by the time we met the photographer, the curls had fallen out. I got a proliss curling iron for my birthday and it’s seriously amazing. I did my hair this weekend for a friend’s shower and my curls held from 9 am to the next morning when I showered.

I use a curling wand as well. Can’t remember the brand. I like it better than a traditional curling iron. Easier to use and the curls last longer.

I have a Chi that I love. I got it at Marshalls or tjmaxx for $50. I’ve owned curling irons for 35 years, and this is the best one I’ve ever used.

I have tried both a wand a curling iron and I am terrible at it. However, I can make great curls with a flat iron. Go figure

I’ve never tried it but the Babyliss curlers look pretty good and easy to use!

Curling wand! I’m not sure what brand I have, but it makes great waves, and this is coming from someone who has always sucked at doing hair! I bought a set that has different sized wands, but I prefer the 1 inch and 1 1/4 inch wands. The waves stay nice and bouncy all day. It’s also super easy and basically impossible to mess up! I’ve tried curling my hair with a flat iron in the past, but it wasn’t pretty…

Also, I’m not sure where you are located, but if you’re in Canada, check out Winners or Home Sense. They always have a great selection of curling irons and wands at really reasonable prices. That’s where I bought my set 🙂
