Curling iron holders are used to store curling irons when not in use. They also protect the heating coils and electronic parts from scratches, moisture, and impact. They can be placed on desktops or hung from walls, and may hold one or several curling irons. Most models hold the irons facing downward, allowing them to be retrieved by the handles.
Types of Curling Iron Holders
Kinds of Curling Iron Holders include the following:
Tube holders are long, cylindrical containers designed to cover the heating rod.
They usually hold only one iron and can be mounted on a larger iron rack.
Wire racks are made of metal wires bent into small pockets for holding the iron.
They are usually hung on walls and can hold several irons and other styling tools.
Desktop racks are angled so that the iron handle faces the user for easy retrieval.
They may be made of wood or metal, and have slots for three or more irons.
Choosing Curling Iron Holders (Buying tips)
Materials: Choose a curling iron holder made of thick, durable materials. Look for heat-resistant materials to prevent damage from contact with the heating rod. Choose wood or other insulating materials if you will be storing irons while still hot.
Stability: Make sure your curling iron holder does not tilt or wobble with heavy loads. For desktop holders, look for one with a rubber or suction bottom to keep it from slipping. Wire racks should be perfectly symmetrical to keep them straight when hung on the wall.
