A Spiral Iron is fun to use. Although it takes some practice, persistance will bring you neat spiral curls.The guides along the barrel help you to create the apiral effect. You can use it to create a full head of curls or just a couple of accent spirals over straight hair. Tip: Make sure you have styling products on your hair, such as firm hold styling foam, so that your spiral will stay springy.
