The Most Important Features To Consider

Before buying a cordless hair curler you may want to consider the following;-

What Types Of Cordless Hair Curlers Are Available

Cordless Auto Hair Curler: An auto hair curler automatically curls your hair inside the barrel. Usually rechargeable with USB charging and battery operated for up to 60 minutes. Will usually require 3-5 hours charging to reach full capacity.

Cordless Gas Styler: If you prefer a more traditional heat curling wand you could opt for a gas styler in which you replace the butane cartridges when required. You can’t necessarily change the heat setting on these.

Cordless Curling Tong: A curling tong or wand that is battery-powered and rechargeable. With the option of different settings, this is pretty much the same as a hair curler with power cable, but will only work for 35-45 minutes before needing to be charged again.

How Portable Are They?

All of the above cordless hair curlers are portable and ideal for travel.

How To Curl Your Hair With Cordless Curler

  • Prepare your hair by drying it until it’s almost dry, then detangle with a wide-tooth comb or brush.
  • Apply a heat protector spray.
  • Turn on curler and set your desired temperature.
  • Split hair into sections for easier styling. Take small sections of hair then wrap the locks around the barrel of the curling iron. Wait a few seconds and release.
  • If using an automatic curler you will not need to wrap your hair around the barrel as this will automatically be done for you.
  • Repeat for all sections.
  • If you switch the direction of your curling every time it will give a more natural look.
  • Once curled, brush out your hair gently and for added hold spritz with hairspray.

Cordless Hair Curler FAQs

How Do Cordless Hair Curlers Work?

Cordless hair curlers work without any power cable and instead rely on batteries or rechargeable batteries.

What Is An Auto Hair Curler?

These will automatically curl your hair and you don’t need to wrap your hair around any barrels. This saves styling time and you won’t have to worry about getting burnt as the heat is contained inside the hair curler.

Are Cordless Hair Curlers Better Than Regular Hair Curlers?

Regular hair curlers with a power cable are more powerful than cordless hair curlers, but that doesn’t mean that cordless hair curlers are not as good at curling. You will need to recharge cordless curling tools frequently, so they are not ideal for everyday use, but if you enjoy travel or weekends away, cordless versions are easily portable and a great idea.

Final Thought

Any of these products will be great for travel and touch-ups but the Jokben Wireless Automatic Curling Iron is my top pick as it has a built in battery pack, can be charged in three hours and has a unique heat isolating curl chamber to protect your hands from any instant surface heat.
