HOW IT LOOKS/FEELS:
The set includes ten large shells and ten smaller ones. They're 100 percent solid ceramic and take about six minutes to fully heat up.
WHY WE LIKE IT:
Where hot rollers can be intimidating (not to mention old-fashioned) these shells seem simple: Just wrap a section of hair around a finger, clip it with the shell, and repeat wherever you want curls. You can create bouncy ringlets, beachy waves, and anything in between—the instructions explain it all—in under 20 minutes. Plus, the ceramic is cooler than other curling tools, and thus kinder to hair.
