Curled Bangs: Hot Tools Professional Marcel Curling Iron

Variety: Remington T|Studio Ceramic Pearl Curling Wand
Variety: Conair Xtreme Instant Heat Multisized Hot Rollers
Consumers on Amazon.com give this affordable roller set high marks for its quick warm-up time and ease of use. Its use of negative ion technology offers heat protection while locking in style and shine. The set includes rollers in several sizes, which makes a multitude of styles possible.
Wavy: Revlon Ceramic 3-Barrel Jumbo Weaver
If you live a stick-straight hair reality but dream of waves, Revlon uses three barrels to make that dream come true. Reviews say that it creates a more natural look than what curling tools with smaller barrels tend to produce.
Wavy: Tigi Bed Head Deep Waver
As is the case with the aforementioned Revlon, this tool doesn’t work best for tight curls or crimped hair. But if you want subtle and sweet "S" curls, Bedhead’s waver might be right up your makeup alley.
Bouncy: T3 SinglePass Twirl Curling Iron
For waves that are more spectacular than subtle, the T3 Twirl utilizes tourmaline ceramic technology to produce a voluptuous head of curls that’ll hopefully turn more than a few heads.
Bouncy: Cricket Friction Free Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron
This curling iron has earned numerous great reviews on Folica.com; consumers seem to love the volume and sculpted curls that it provides. The 1 1/4" barrel is perfect for making big bouncy ringlets, though getting crimp-free curls may require some practice.
Easy-to-Create Curls: Sedu Revolution Clipless Curling Iron
This smooth-barrel curling iron gets raves from users on Folica.com—and a 4 1/2-star rating! Its lack of a barrel and its inclusion of a heat-resistant glove make the process easy for even the most clueless of curlers.
