When I think of 1-inch-curls I think of Taylor Swift. Luckily, her curls are simple to achieve, even with fine hair. I recommend using a 1-inch-curling rod to get the look. (I use the Conair Infinity Rod and it runs for $25-30 at drug stores)
My hair is absolutely impossible to curl. I have tried every method, every product, and every tool and each time it’s a total fail. However, I have recently discovered something that actually does the job — curling rods.
The only difference between a curling rod and a curling iron is that the curling rod does not have a clamp. Therefore, to get the perfect curl, you have to wrap your hair around the iron as appose to clamping it underneath. I use the Remington curling iron — its super cute (and pale pink!) and I like it because its larger in width than the typical curling rod so it makes really voluminous curls.
