Powered by high-tech advances and science, curling irons are now almost robotic, doing your hair for you at the push of a button.
T3 Twirl 360
T3 tools boast an impressive tagline: The Science of Fabulous. Their latest launch, the Twirl 360, backs up this claim. The iron incorporates gyroscopic technology, commonly used in aviation and space exploration for its sensitivity and precision, which detects motion and orientation. Here, it works with a simple twist of the wrist, leading the auto-rotating barrel to spin in order to form perfect curls every time.
It also includes signature Ceramic, Ionic Tourmaline and T3 Single Pass technology to maintain consistent heat for healthier hair. There are two speed settings (slow for beginners, fast for experts) and five heat settings, making the tool adaptable for all hair types, textures and levels of styling skill. Automatic rotation curls hair quickly, while eliminating awkward manual motion and increasing control creates accurate, consistent results. Find it for $230 at T3micro.com.
Celebrity hairstylist Sarah Potempa's new BEACHWAVER® S1 takes the effort out of the hands of its user. That's why it was created for women who want curls or waves but have difficulty using hair tools to create them. The user-friendly device features a digital temperature dial to choose from a range of temperatures based on hair type.
Its hi/lo speed switch and arrow button provide users with better rotating control; the home button creates the ability to reset the clamp. It is designed to save time, as users can create defined curls, glam waves or loose, beachy ones in under 10 minutes. Additionally, the lightweight, ergonomic design makes it even easier to use. It's available for $129 at Ulta.com.
