If you’re like us, you’ve probably amassed a pretty substantial collection of hair tools over the years. From curling wands and straightening irons to hot rollers and beyond, for every style you desire, there’s a hair tool that will create it. 

Now, we are hearing about a new type of curling iron that’s destined to be the “it” tool. Dubbed the reverse curling iron or wand, what makes this one so unique is that it not only makes serious waves—it works wonders on short hair—but the inverted barrels (they go from skinny a the base and gradually get wider) also give movement and dimension so your hair doesn’t look flat or contrived. We rounded up the best in the biz, and here they are.
