Just that. What is the best and easiest to use curling wand? Ideally one that won't break the bank!

What type of curls do you want? And how long is your hair?
I really like using the Babyliss Diamond waves ( Which is only £15 at the moment on Amazon, down from £30 and don’t be out off by the picture on the box!).
Lee Stafford is my favourite brand though, they have a good selection for different types of curls and they’re reasonably priced also.
If your looking for something easy and prepared to spend a little more, take a look at the Remington curl revolution (only £44 right now in boots and on Amazon), you basically put the hair between the plates like you are using straighteners, press a button and it does all the work for you!

You probably want something with quite a wide barrel then, maybe like

This one

Or this

With longer hair though, it may be easier for the wand to be slightly longer too.

I've got a big fat babyliss one that's called something like soft waves and gives a big loose curl on my long hair, but doesn't work quite so well if shorter.

Watching with interest. Suspect 32mm barrel best but keen to hear one that actually holds curls and offers more beach waves than ringlets
