So you ask, 'What is so special about a curling
A 5/8' curling iron is a great universal tool that can be used on many different short to medium hair lengths, textures and styles. The small barrel size is great for use on fine, damaged or stubborn hair, which tends to be more resistant to curling. This is because a smaller curl naturally holds its shape longer, extending duration of the style. In addition this size allows you the ability to get close to the scalp enabling you to create incredible volume close to your roots.
