Harry Josh 3-in-1 Ceramic Curling Iron

There’s a hot tool out there for seemingly every purpose: wands designed to create perfectly imperfect beach waves, curling irons made to shape cascading ringlets. But if your inner minimalist recoils at the thought of multiple tangled tools occupying the space under your bathroom sink, you’ve got a new, streamlined option in the 3-in-1 Ceramic Curling Iron from Harry Josh® Pro Tools.

The latest breakthrough from celebrity and editorial hairstylist Harry Josh’s namesake brand lets you create a range of looks that rival a professional hairdresser’s repertoire—all with a single iron. The 3-in-1, which comes in both 1-inch and 1.25-inch sizes, features a nano-ceramic-coated wand that can be used clampless or with one of two detachable parts: a spring clamp and a marcel clamp. Plus, its adjustable temperature settings up to 380 degrees mean it’s great for every hair type or condition (yes, even damaged hair). Here’s a look at how to use the tool three different ways—just like a pro.

For Tousled Curls & Beach Waves: Use the Wand

Achieving this perfectly imperfect look couldn’t be easier—and using a clamp-free wand is key. Another Harry Josh–approved trick? As you release each section, pull slightly at the ends to loosen up the curl.

For Sleek, Glam Styles: Use the Spring Clamp

While you certainly can use the spring clamp to wrap sections of hair and create traditional curls, we also love this attachment for making Hollywood-style S-waves. Grab a section of hair with the clamp and push upward slightly to create a soft bend, working your way to the ends.

For Polished, Pro-Level Results: Use the Marcel Clamp

Professional hairstylists swear by marcel irons for their versatility, but this clamp is useful even if your styling skills aren’t quite expert level. Use the marcel clamp to curl the bottom two or three inches of your hair, a trick that will give body and movement to your style.
