Want to know the best curling iron? Our readers picked their favorites!

Beauty pros know a simple styling tool can make or break your hairstyle. A lousy curling iron can do more than give you weak curls. It can damage your hair, and even be a fire hazard. 😱

If you want healthy hair, a full-body style, and lasting ringlets, you need to choose the right curling iron. We’re here to help! We made a list of powerful styling tools that not only curl your hair but protect your tresses. Best of all, each one is a favorite recommended by a member of the Hip2Save team or one of our amazing readers!


Here are the top 6 best curling irons according to the Hip2Save community:


1. When we asked readers about great curling irons, The Beachwaver was by far the most mentioned.

Sara recently got a chance to try the gorgeous Beachwaver Curling Iron and she had a lot of great things to say about it. Not only is the barrel a pretty shade of pink, but the barrel rotates itself doing all the curling for you!

One of the reasons she thought it stood out from other curling wands is that it starts the curl at the bottom of her hair instead of the top. As a result, her ends look much more polished. Plus, the ceramic-coated barrel protects her hair from heat damage! She thought this curling iron was pretty cool, and many Hip2Save readers ranked it as their very favorite!

“I LOVE LOVE LOVE my Beachwaver. I’ve had it for almost a year and it’s my favorite styling tool.” – Nicole, Hip2Save reader


“I LOVE my Beachwaver! I can curl my hair and it lasts for DAYS with minimal touch-ups periodically. I have thick, wavy hair and only wash it every 5-6 days, FYI. Their purple shampoo is AMAZING too!!” – Brooke, Hip2Save reader


“I have one I bought many months ago, and I have to say that I absolutely love it! I can do my hair within 20 minutes or so with this thing! And I have fine hair but a lot of it, and use heat protection before using it and then a little bit of hairspray to hold the curls longer and will “touch” up when my curls/waves become flat. I highly recommend this thing, for sure.” – Silja, Hip2Save reader


“I have a Beachwaver and just tried it for the first time and I LOVE it!!” – Melinda, Hip2Save team


“Will never go without one now!” Niki, Hip2Save reader


2. Chelsey was recently impressed by the beach waves she got from using the Bio Ionic Eternity Wand.

Bio Ionic 10X Eternity Wand With Volcanic Mineral Complex – $129
Use coupon code HIP2SAVE to save 30%
Final price just $90.30!

This savvy styling wand is made with a volcanic mineral complex that encourages hydrated and polished curls. Chelsey recently put it to the test against her old curling iron, and wow, what a difference the Bio Ionic made! She got perfect, long-lasting beach curls using this savvy styling tool.

Hip2Save’s Stacy also loves Bio Ionic because it has an extra long barrel. It makes using the wand easier and less awkward on your hands. Though the Bio Ionic Eternity Wand is among the pricier curling irons, it’s truly high-quality and keeps your hair soft and bouncy!

Other reasons we love it:

  • 9-foot cord
  • Includes a heat protectant glove
  • Moisturizing Heat Technology locks in hair’s moisture
  • 1-hour automatic shutoff
  • Comes with a 1-year warranty

3.  Another Hip2Save reader favorite was the popular L’ange Le Duo curling iron.

L’ange Le Duo 360 Titanium Styler – $119
Use code GIFT to get 30% off
Final price just $83.30!

Hip2Save readers raved about their L’ange curling irons. The Le Duo and Le Duo Grande were both mentioned as being exceptional. These lightweight styling tools can both straighten or curl your hair. What makes them unique is that they come with studded air vents that release cool air to lock your style.

The Le Duo Grande was made for longer hair while the Le Duo is perfect for medium or shorter lengths. The ergonomic design is easy on your hands and wrists too and that makes this curling tool a winner in our book!

“L’ange Le Duo Grande curling iron cools as it curls. It’s fantastic and I’m completely obsessed. Holds my curls for days.”  – Ashley, Hip2Save reader


“I have quite a few curling irons/rods, wavers, and straighteners but the Le Duo is by far my favorite. I have fine, thin hair and that is the only tool that really does keep curls for days. Got it on a great sale at Ulta for $44!” – Lori, Hip2Save reader


“L’ange. My hair is heavy and long. This is the first curling rod to curl my hair and have it stay curled.” – Lisa, Hip2Save reader


4.  The affordable Conair INFINITIPRO is tried and true!

Conair Infinity Pro curling iron - best curling irons

Conair is one of the most recognizable names in styling tools today… and for good reason. The company offers affordable and effective curling irons. It was no surprise that multiple Hip2Save readers mentioned Conair as their favorite brand for curling irons!

The one above heats up super fast and uses Nano technology to keep your hair shiny and frizz-free. Meanwhile, the ceramic evenly distributes heat for consistent and defined curls. The lip and handle can sometimes catch hair, so you need to be careful when using it, but for the cost, this curling iron works really well. You’ll love the results AND the price!

Other reasons we love it:

  • 5 different precision LED heat settings
  • Automatic safety shutoff
  • Heats up in 30 seconds
  • Easy-glide ceramic surface
  • Long-lasting curls

5. Our team would love to get our hands on a Dyson Airwrap.

The price tag may be hefty, but we’ve heard this is the styling tool worth the splurge. Most everyone who has used it mentions how much healthier their hair feels. The tool comes with several attachments so you can dry, straighten, and curl your hair.

What makes this innovative curling iron unique is that it uses air to curl your hair. This aerodynamic phenomenon, called the Coanda effect, allows the curling iron to use less heat and curl hair both clockwise and counterclockwise for a voluminous look. This styling tool even uses cold air to set your style and it can eliminate up to 58% of frizz and flyaways. 🙌

“My hair has been much healthier since I started using the Dyson Airwrap. Sometimes I blow dry with it and use a Chi flat iron.” – Melanie, Hip2Save reader


“Amazing! I find it hard to keep my hair styled for long without it turning dry/frizzy, and this product not only keeps my hair fabulous with salon-quality + shine, but it also eliminates frizz & maintains it all day long. My hair is much healthier now than other hair tools which overheat and dry my hair out. It’s a one-stop shop for everything you need, without a doubt worth the splurge. The only hair tool I use now!” – Kess, product reviewer


6.  The BaByliss Pro is a staple styling tool of the Hip2Save community.

BaByliss Pro Spring Curling Iron - best curling irons

A LOT of Hip2Save readers reported loving their BaByliss Pro styling tools. The curling iron above is perfect for beginners. We love how the Nano titanium barrel uses infrared heat. This technology heats your hair shaft from within which minimizes potential heat damage and leaves your hair shiny and smooth!

Other reasons we love it:

  • 8-foot cord
  • Slim, lightweight barrel
  • Ionic technology that reduces frizz
  • Corrosion-resistant styling surfaces
  • Heats evenly

  2. Jackie

    The Chi Spin and Curl is amazing. I got that and a Beachwaver at the same time and gave away the Beachwaver. It’s going to be 50% off at Ulta on Saturday and is 100% worth it. Easiest and nicest curls. Takes me 15 minutes to do my whole head and I have long, thick hair.

    • Jessica (Hip Sidekick)

      Thanks for sharing the curling iron your recommend, Jackie! Glad to hear how well it curls your hair! ๐Ÿ™Œ
