What Is a Professional Curling Iron?

Professional curling irons are thermal styling tools that are made specifically for hairstylists to use in salons. These styling tools are developed by world famous stylists, scientists and engineers to be as durable and effective as possible. Many salons offer the professional curling irons that their stylists use for sale to customers.

Better Materials, Better Results

One of the things that separate professional curling irons from traditional curling irons is the materials from which they are made. Professional stylists use curling irons many times every day, so they require tools that are durable enough to stand up to frequent, daily use. As a result, professional curling irons are constructed out of strong materials, including 24-karat gold and titanium. Professional curling irons may also be made out of ceramic or tourmaline. These materials are beneficial because they produce negative ions that reduce frizz and static and promote shine with every use.

Enhanced Features Preferred by the Pros

Professional curling irons often have special features to meet the demands of professional hairstylists. Often, salon quality curling irons heat up very quickly, so that they can be ready for use in a hurry. Curling irons designed for professional use typically feature adjustable heat settings. This allows you to use only as much heat as necessary to produce long-lasting curls and waves in order to minimize your hair's exposure to potentially damaging heat. Additionally, spring curling irons used in salons typically have easy-to-use clamps that can simplify styling for both professionals and at-home users.

Getting the Most From Your Professional Curling Iron

In addition to using the best curling irons to get the best possible styling results, professional hairdressers also use the best hair care products. By purchasing salon styling products to use with your professional curling iron, you can better recreate a true salon experience at home. Like professional curling irons, salon styling products are formulated for use by the pros. They contain high quality ingredients and are developed on the basis of hair care science and research. You should always use a thermal protector before styling your hair with any curling iron. These products create a thin protective layer that shields the hair from heat in order to minimize damage. You can also purchase curl enhancing and volumizing salon styling products to give your hair more body and bounce and perfect the shape of natural curls and waves. Finish your style with a salon hairspray to keep your curls and waves intact throughout the day.
