    I've got a gift voucher for a beauty store, but all the curling irons, curl and wave makers are confusing.

    It's not electric but I just bought myself a Denman brush from Sally's. I'd heard it was the bee's knees for wet sets and it's pretty fantastic. Works well on tangly children's hair as well.
    I've been thinking I need to get a curling iron with a narrower barrel (1/2 in? 1/4in?)for those nape-of-the-neck hairs that so often fall out of pin curls and sponge rollers overnight or get squished flat when I don't feel like re-rolling the second night of a set.

    The only electric things I use when doing my hair, and this is a stretch, are the lights and the water heater.

    I sometimes use my Caruso steam curlers. They're easier than sleeping on rollers.

    I use the clamp style curling irons with porcelain in them. I am partial to Conair. I use a 1/2 inch for the bottom most layers and a 3/4 for everything else. That said I have naturally very curly and very thick hair and if I use hot rollers it refused to give up any of the curl, when I wet set it can take 12+ hours to dry and that is with some minimal drying. So heat tools are my preferred option. I also clip and or pin my hair into pin curls to allow them to cool.
