What size curling wand is best for long hair?

A curling wand with a larger or longer barrel is best for long hair to ensure that the barrel of the wand can accommodate the entire length of hair. This also helps to ensure the wand is able to heat and style the hair evenly to create long lasting and consistent curls. Alternatively a curling wand with interchangeable barrel attachments can also be useful to customise your curls based on the length of your hair.
