I came across this little infographic on Total Beauty and I thought it was worth a share. Many times we buy curling irons(affiliate link) without an idea of how the iron(affiliate link) size affects the end results of your curls.
Essentially, the larger the barrel size the larger the curls, nothing new there then! I have been caught out by curls that fall way too quickly in the past which was due to picking an unsuitable barrel size. Smaller curls stay intact longer and larger curls will provide volume to thin looking hair but they fall faster.
Of course these days you will find curling wands(affiliate link) that are thicker at the base and thinner at the end. This allows you to create most of these styles without the need to have separate styling tools for each look.
