Hair Curled with Small Barrel Curling Iron

I've shared my hair curled with curlers and a regular size curling iron, but I haven't shown it done with my small barrel curling iron. I only curl the permed portion of my hair - so from the shoulders up its my new growth. I use a curling iron that I have had for at least 10 years! It doesn't give too much heat but enough to set a curl, so my hair doesn't really get damaged with this one and I will share more about it in the Hair Tools post coming up.

I did a photo with the flash and without, so you can you see how it hides the perm perfectly! Since my hair was permed with a tight winding spiral, using the small barrel curling iron fits with the permed wave creating a better look. I curled my hair a few hours before taking the photo and was out in the rain, so the curls aren't as tight as they were before the rain! (click photo to enlarge)
