Today curling irons make it possible for the average woman to add some body, bounce and curl to naturally frizzy, flat or straight hair.
If you are a professional hair stylist and have a clientele of older women, if you yourself have very short or medium length hair and are looking for tight curl then I would recommend using a 3/8's inch curling iron. The mini 3/8 "barrel size will help you to add a bend to extremely short hair, some texture to bangs or create tight curls. of hair textures resulting in a beautiful finished hair style. Another great benefit is that do to the tiny barrel size you're able to get very close to the scalp which enables you to create incredible volume beginning at the roots.
