Harry Josh Pro Tools 2-in-1 Ceramic Marcel 1-inch Curling Iron: $185
A favorite of: Caile Noble @cailenobleWhy: “What's not to love, this iron is amazing! Not only does it heat up in 50seconds, it has high and low setting so you can adjust the heat for your hair type. It can be used as marcel or a wand which is amazing, it's ceramic barrel helps smooth hair and evenly distributes heat! Lastly, it looks great and is built to last! Best way to use it: Creating glamorous old Hollywood waves is my favorite way to use the iron on clients. The 1inch barrel gives me the variety to create a more classic or modern style all in how tightly I decide to wrap the hair around the iron! How to clean: My favorite way to clean the iron is by heating it up on a low setting, then wiping it down with a towel that has a little rubbing alcohol on it. This allows me to remove build up and disinfect the iron!" Buy it here.

Hot Tools Black Gold 1 1/4-inch Curling Iron: $64.99
A favorite of: Jenny Cho @jennychohairWhy: "So many things I love about this iron. Not only does it have the gage that I can control for heat level but I love how quickly it gets hot evenly for even results, it prevents hair that gets sprayed before curling not get stuck on the iron which prevents hair from getting damaged and that’s huge for me. It’s also super chic and most importantly, it has universal dual voltage for all of my travels. This size iron my favorite for that perfectly undone bend with body in the hair. How to clean: I turn on the iron on low so the build up of any products gets loose soft and the fastest way to clean it, I apply rubbing alcohol on a square cotton pad and add pressure to wipe to remove every bit of gunk." Buy it here.
A favorite of: Marissa Marino @marissa.marinoWhy: "It gives the perfect beach wave, and the hair never gets too curly with it. I love to give beach waves while leaving the ends on the straighter side, giving a messy tousled look. How to clean: While it’s still warm I like to wipe it off with a damp towel." Buy it here.
