I have a 1 1/2 inch roller "Hot Tools" curling iron. It cost me about $40 even at my stylist's cost. It's awesome though. It gives me nice barrel curls. I did that for my wedding day so my hair was long and had nice barrels. Didn't last long, though. I'm going to look into the ceramic flat irons. I hear so much about them. I love my hair curly, but I like the straight look every once in a while.
