Having voluminous, bouncy curls and lustrous waves is nice, but the process of creating them can be tricky and time consuming. That's why we selected these automatic irons that do the hard work for you quickly. Just place your hair on the barrel and it will rotate at the push of a button. We chose models that are simple to use and produce the results you'd get in your stylist's chair.

Editor's Notes

November 19, 2018:

We made sure our models don't cause any of the common issues irons can, like burning, snagging, or simply not holding the hair well. We selected a good range for every budget, including some used by real salon professionals, and some more simple models that are great for fashionistas on the go. We also added some multi-functioning tools, like the Hisoon 2-in-1 and the InStyler, reducing the number of appliances you need to buy.

A wandering writer who spends as much time on the road as in front of a laptop screen, Brett can either be found hacking away furiously at the keyboard or, perhaps, enjoying a whiskey and coke on some exotic beach, sometimes both simultaneously, usually with a four-legged companion by his side. He has been a professional chef, a dog trainer, and a travel correspondent for a well-known Southeast Asian guidebook. He also holds a business degree and has spent more time than he cares to admit in boring office jobs. He has an odd obsession for playing with the latest gadgets and working on motorcycles and old Jeeps. His expertise, honed over years of experience, is in the areas of computers, electronics, travel gear, pet products, and kitchen, office and automotive equipment.
