My previous article described about the various 2-inch curling iron. This article is a review set up to let you gain an overall insight about clipless curling iron. Clipless irons aren’t the perfect choice for rookies. When you have enough experience in handling those traditional spring curling irons, you can handle these better.
Before buying a clipless iron for curling, the necessities should be drawn. For example, if you have long hair, then bigger barrel size like 1 inch is better. On the flip side, for shorter hair, ½, 3/8 and 5/8 inch barrel sizes are considered better for obtaining short and tight curls.
The material of the barrel is usually made of titanium, or ceramic/tourmaline. While the titanium barrels get heated up quickly and is less pricey, the ceramic/tourmaline curler claims to be the best for hair. The latter is expensive and is recommended for those who love curling hair more frequently. Additionally, the barrel needs to be properly coated so that it doesn’t wear away with time.
While there are several advantages of using a clipless iron, it is always recommended to be bought with an additional glove. If the iron contains the glove in its packaging, then it is well and fine; otherwise first time users should mind buying it separately for better safety.
