These Are Hands Down the Best Curling Irons for Short Hair


Shopping for a curling iron should be pretty straightforward. Except for most us, it's not. With constantly evolving technology, shapes, and sizes, it can be difficult to keep track of what's hype, what's not, and what's actually worth spending your money on. (Especially since some of the best curling irons come in at a hefty dollar value.) That being said, there are some truly great rods and wands out there—especially if you're looking for an iteration to pair beautifully with shorter locks.

This cult-favorite one-inch wand is great for any hair length (take if from someone who's proved to be ever the chameleon over the years) but is especially handy for short hair. Plus, it's also probably one of the least damaging in the bunch. Featuring the brand's exclusive Advanced Care Ceramic technology (which simultaneously repairs the hair as you style), it's safe for color-treated, dry, and yes, even damaged strands. Also—it's fast.
