Transform straight hair into wavy locks, or tame the frizziest naturally curly hair

They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but we reckon the best curling wands could be the millennial alternative. For those with naturally poker-straight locks they’re a look-transforming tool, while for curly-haired girls they can tame tousled tresses and fight frizzy hair.

While the best hair straighteners often double as a curler, wands are your hot ticket to harder-to-achieve hair looks. Whether you’re inspired by retro styling or the much sought-after relaxed waves, these are the best curling wands that will get you the results.

The choice look on the catwalk pretty much every year is the beach babe wave; making its return time and time again, it’s the perfect style whatever the weather. Curling wands are your best bet for this on-trend hairstyle, because they won’t leave your hair in tight ringlets. Instead, lush looking loose waves will be yours – see our round up of curly hairstyles for more inspo.

Size-wise, large barrel curlers are the way to go if you’’re after gorgeous, super-smooth bouncy waves. Brand-wise, ghd and Cloud Nine are high up there on our wish list and well worth the investment for their long lasting benefits and salon-worthy finish.

If you’’re looking for something equally effective in the curling department, but without the heavier price tag, look to Revlon, TRESemmé and BaByliss – their pro stylers can be snapped up for under £100.

Worried the heat will damage your healthy locks? Try T3. Their cleverly designed ceramic barrel actually locks in moisture, leaving you with glossy, frizz-free hair.

If you’re confident in hairstyling then opt for a grip-free curling wand. But if you’re looking for easy-to-achieve, fuss-free waves, or you’re a beginner when it comes to curling and waving, then the best curling wands with a firm clamp are the way to go.

Straight locks, be gone; it’s time to say hello to big and bouncy hair.
