    Question Size of barrel on curling iron

    Advertisements
    I got a 1 1/2 inch curling iron for Christmas. I honestly have no clue about hair and was wondering what the size means? I am assuming the bigger the barrel the bigger the curl, but is 1 1/2 a good size?

    That's what mine is I think, the bigger the barrel the looser the curls

    That's a great size! too much bigger will make the curls too big and too much smaller will make the curls really tight! 1.5 is a perfect size IMO!

    It's a perfect size for longer hair. For MY hair (super short, above the collar hair) I use a teeny tiny 3/4" barrel. But yeah. Generally all my life I've done longer hair = bigger barrel.
