The best curling wands can transform straight hair into wavy locks or tame the curliest hair. Find your ultimate curling wand here...

They say that diamonds are a girl’s best friend. But, we reckon curling wands could take their place. For those with poker-straight locks, they’re a look-transforming tool. And for curly-haired girls they can tame those tousled tresses and fight frizzy hair. Curling wands are your hot ticket to the harder-to-achieve hair looks. And whether you’re inspired by retro styling or looking for this season’s much sought-after relaxed waves, these are the curling wands that will get you the results.

The choice look on the catwalk each years is the beach babe wave. Making its return time and time again, it’s the perfect style in preparation for high summer. And for this on-trend wavy hairstyle, curling wands are your best bet. This is because they won’t leave your hair in tight ringlets, instead, lush looking loose waves will be yours.

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, but without the price tag, look to Revlon and Babyliss, where pro stylers can be snapped up for under £100. And if you’re after a tighter curl, Lee Stafford’s chopsticks will do the trick. The skinny barrel will give your corkscrew curls in no time.

Worried the heat will damage your healthy locks? Try T3 where their cleverly designed ceramic barrel actually locks in moisture, leaving you with glossy frizz-free hair. And for those of you feeling confident, go for a grip-free curling wand. But, if you’re looking for easy-to-achieve, fuss-free waves, curling wands with a firm clamp are the way to go.

And should you fancy trying something new, look to these celebrity curly hairstyles for some wavy inspiration. From Alicia Keys to Amanda Seyfried and Rachel McAdams, there’s a style to suit everyone.

So what are you waiting for?
