From the days of watching Elle and Blair Fowler on YouTube, Hot Tools has been a brand on my mind for the best curling irons and wands. I'm used to a super short bob cut, but I'm now growing out my locks and loose waves are a go-to look.
Whenever I try using a regular curling iron, my arms gets so tired. Even when I'm trying to do a proper blowout. Luckily HotTools understands our pain and they have created an ergonomic tool that will change your routine completely.
This 1 1/4" CurlBar retails for around $150 with a 3-Year Warranty and is also available in a 1" format. ULTA Beauty now ships to Canada, so you can buy it for $140, plus shipping.
I decided to call this look "Instagram Hair" since all of my favourite Instagrammers and Youtubers have been going in for the chop and can totally rock the shorter, messier 'do. Even Refinery 29 (big love for them) have deemed the shoulder-length waves completely on trend for 2017.
You'll see in my tutorial below that the CurlBar features are so advanced, with a built-in timer that buzzes after the countdown and a very hot 450° max temp. From the convenient swivel cord to the well-fitting heat protective glove, I'm sold. See my routine here:
