Conair Curling Iron

Where You Can Buy the Conair Curling Iron:
Outfit Details:

I have several curling irons that I've used over the years but one curling iron stays constant. I have been using this Conair 1.25" curling iron for 10+ years... not the exact same one each time as I have had to replace them here and there, but the same brand and same size. 

As much as I love my pricier irons, like this t3 barrel, I truly don't think you need to spend a fortune on hot tools to get a great look. I've mentioned that I use this curling iron many times before but I don't think that I have ever done a proper review! 

First of all, it's under $20 so it's inexpensive, and thinking ahead to the holidays, it would make a great stocking stuffer but also a cute gift if paired with something like a headband, WetBrush, or Teleties or something like that! 

It lasts for years. I usually replace mine around 4ish years as the higher heat temperatures start to go. I have never had one fully 'break' or stop working on me, though. 

It is so easy to use. Everything is common sense on this iron. There is an on and off button. It blinks as it heats up and then the light is constant once fully heated. It automatically shuts off so you never have to worry that you left the curling iron on. There is a dial with 30 heat settings. I always use the highest one on my hair as it is super thick and I have a ton of it, but if you have finer, more delicate hair, you can use lower heat! There is a 'turbo' button for a boost of heat and I usually always use the Turbo setting. It heats up so fast! 
This curling iron is also offered in different sizes. I basically have all the sizes but I almost always prefer the 1.25" as the curls are a little less curly-q and more natural-looking. 

In terms of other inexpensive drugstore brands, I've pretty much tried them all and Conair always comes out on top. This is not at all sponsored (I've never even been gifted items from the brand). Even the pricier/fancier curling irons from Conair aren't as good as this model

Another great advantage of this iron is it's dual voltage so it can be used outside of the US (no voltage converter needed)! I bought it specifically for international travel since I regularly curl my hair and my beloved hot tools does not have this feature. Can't be beat for the price!

Anonymous, this is SUCH a great point. I brought mine to Paris a few years ago and had no issues!
