Hot Tools has created one of the most advanced, high quality and professional curling iron on the market the Marcel for salon professionals and the spring loaded for the average consumer. The Marcel iron is perfect for the salon professional because it allows you to curl hair fast and consistent. It heats up extremely fast, features heat four times more powerful then the average iron and it maintains the heat evenly. Hot tool also has a spring loaded 5/8" iron is easy to use and is perfect for the average consumer. Features include patented pulse auto heat control for high heat, constant heat, gold-plated barrel, touch guard protector for easier handling close to the neck or face, and built-in rheostat control.
The question then is;how do you produce curls with these device? To create spiral curls, these devices use high heat and a thin barrel. A thin tong is used to firmly grip the end of a lock of hair. The rest of the hair is then wrapped around the iron to create the curls. One of the best things about Farouk chi spiral curling irons is that they are portable and lightweight. In fact, you can carry it with you when you travel. These contraptions follow strict features. The diameter of the iron is very important. They should be no more than an inch because if they are, they will not be able to produce spiral curls. The barrel should also be elongated in order to allow the hair to be spread out. These irons have different heat settings and are normally powered by electricity.
The curling iron has remained a favoured tool in spite of all the chemical inventions. We have moved on from the metal rods heated by insertion into hot coals or heating on gas or electric stoves. With no control of the heat of the iron there must have been many cases of singed hair, not to mention burnt fingers and scalps! Modern day styles demand more control and flexibility of hair style with hair looking loose rather than "glued into place". Electrically heated and electronically controlled irons and tongs are now available. The barrels come in varying sizes enabling a tight curl or loose falling curl finish. Some have a smooth easy-glide ceramic barrel to create a super smooth finish and you can also purchase drop curl hair tongs with a cone shaped tong to create loose, tumbling waves and tousled curls. The fluctuation in hair styles from curly to straight and back again means manufacturers will continue to dream up new innovations to attract both professional hair stylists and the consumer.
Equally important is to use a curling tool with right barrel size. For instance, if you would like to have springy curls, then it is advisable to use a curling rod with a barrel weighing just.75 inch. This is also suitable for people with short as well as fine hair. Likewise, for natural curls, use a curling iron with one inch barrel. Further, it would be enough if you use a curling rod with barrel of 1.5 - 2 inches for creating cascading waves. For best results, use a curling rod with adjustable heat settings. This in turn would help to adjust the heat settings to suit the texture of your hair. Prior to curling your hair, prepare your hair by shampooing it and then use a heat protectant spray or gel on your damp hair. Then blow dry and divide your hair into small sections. The next step is to plug in the curling tool. When it reaches the desirable temperature, unclip a section of your hair to place it within the curling rod. Now glide down the curling tool starting from the scalp. When the iron reaches the tip of the hair, roll up and hold it for about ten seconds. Repeat the same procedures with all the other sections of your hair.
