Wrapping your hair around the curling irons barrel, you can hold it there for different periods of time at different levels of heat to give anything from a gentle, rippling wave to a series of large, looping curls that will get you plenty of attention, plenty of compliments, and make you feel like an actress from a major movie set or a celebrity – hot, striking, and beautiful.

A good cordless curling iron has some real benefits that appeal to many people who like to wave or curl their hair, and that you might find useful, too.

This type of curling iron, obviously, doesn’t have a cord – and since curling irons are used with a twisting, winding motion to help wrap your hair around the barrel, lack of a cord can be a real benefit when you are trying to get your hair done comfortably. Twirling the iron around when you’ve got a cord attached to one end of it can lead to several different problems. The cord can knot and kink, forcing you to stop every couple of minutes to straighten out the tangle. Or it may get caught in your hair at times, and be even more annoying as you get it out – and try to hold it clear of your hair.

Another advantage to a cordless curling iron is that you can use it anywhere in the house, and even walk around while you’re using it. If you need to answer the door, let the cat out, or check on something that’s cooking, you don’t need to interrupt your curling session, and you don’t need to leave a plugged-in curling iron unattended, which might be dangerous. Running to the phone when it rings won’t involve possibly tripping over the iron’s cord in your hurry, either.

You can also charge up your cordless curling iron and take it with you to touch up your curls quickly when you’re away from the house. You won’t need to find an electric outlet in order to get your wave or curl back in order if it gets messed up or if some of it relaxes unexpectedly. You can touch up your hair anywhere from a bathroom to a hallway to the seat of your car with a hand-mirror when you are sitting in a parking lot.

In short, a curling iron without a cord gives you more convenience and flexibility in using the device to give yourself that exciting look that you prefer – whether you’re at home or out on the road or at the office, it will always be ready.
