Getting big curls that hold out and bounce can be tricky, but hair styling tools made especially for the task make hair goals easier to achieve.

Achieving big, voluminous curls can elevate your look and add that extra perk to your style. To get those lovely, full curls, consider these tips and the recommended hair styling tools.

Curling Irons

For big curls, opt for a curling iron that is at least an inch wide. Remember that the wider the barrel, the larger your resulting curls will be. Before styling, let the iron heat up fully for about two to three minutes or as the manufacturer suggests.
