7 Best Curling Irons for Moms With No Time to Primp (PHOTOS)

curlsLong, long ago, when I was in high school, I spent nearly an hour every single morning painstakingly styling my hair with a curling iron. Looking back at the photos, I'm hazy on what look I was after there (actually, it's coming back to me: I wanted to look like Cher from the movie Moonstruck). But one thing I know for sure. Ain't NOBODY got time for that level of hair curling now! On the rare occasions I actually do use a curling iron, it has to be like a good pain reliever: fast, gentle, and effective.


That's why we took several best-selling curling irons out for a spin to find out which ones deliver -- especially for moms with under 10 minutes for their hair. We looked at how easy they are to use, how quickly they heat up, how quickly and how well they curled our hair, and how long those curls lasted.

Have a look at our favorites and then tell us:

Do you use any of these? What curling iron do you recommend?
