You might remember us gushing about our favorite curling iron recently, an amazing tool with a $129 price point that'll make you think twice before adding to cart. With holiday budgets looming and good hair always a necessity, we went on a hunt for a tool that would live up to our pricey standby without such a hefty price tag. We immediately took to the Amazon review boards and came across the Remington Pro 1 -1 ½” Curling Wand, Amazon’s number one selling hair curling wand.

With over 4,500 5-star customer reviews, it didn’t take much to sell us on this budget pick that currently clocks in at $19. Not only is the bright pink barrel almost pretty enough to keep on our vanities, it also has a 30 second heat up that will make our morning primp a breeze. Even reviewers with stick-straight hair have found this tool to be the answer to their curl-holding issues. One reviewer wrote, “This is the only wand that has ever held a curl in my hair. A little hairspray and it will stay curly for two days.”

The iron’s tapered barrel heats up to 410 degrees and comes in two different sizes: a 1 – 1 ½ inch and a smaller ½ to 1 inch. The smaller barrel is ideal for shorter hair, or can be used along with the larger barrel to give a more natural look. Toggle the temperature up or down using the digital controls to find the ideal heat level for your hair texture and thickness.

Give this curling wand a whirl and let us know what you think. At just $19 a pop, you might want to go ahead and ask Santa for the pair.
