Medium Sized Barrels for Medium Length Tresses
Does your hair fall between your chin and your collarbones? If so, a 1-inch curling iron can help you create attractive styles. You can use a 1-inch iron to create spiral curls and ringlets in your medium-length locks. If your hair is very fine or very thin and you want very tight curls, you may want to choose a curling iron under 1 inch in size. For looser, bouncy curls in medium hair, it's best to opt for a curling iron with a barrel that is a little larger than 1 inch wide.
Styling Long Hair with Medium Sized Irons
Have longer hair? Curling irons with 1-inch barrels are typically the smallest curling irons that can be used to style hair of your length. With a 1-inch iron, you can create tight spiral and ringlet curls in fine to normal and thin to normal long hair with ease. If your hair is very thick or coarse or you're hoping to create a different type of curl, you should consider shopping for larger curling irons.
Most curling irons with 1-inch barrels are spring curling irons, meaning that they have a clip or clamp that holds hair in place while you curl. If you're new to using a curling iron or want something that is simple to use, a spring barrel is likely the right choice for your needs. A small number of 1-inch curling irons on the market today are clipless. More ideal for experienced users, clipless curling irons make it possible to control the shape of curls and do not leave behind clamp marks on the hair.
