Cotton gloves

Tools, Tips, Technique


Cotton gloves can be found in most stores. They are gentle on the skin and comfortable.


Cotton gloves are useful to have in your kit. Use a glove that is two sizes larger than your size so that you have freedom of movement in your hands. When using a curling iron, a tight fitting glove can become very uncomfortable with the constant movement needed to manipulate the tool.


Non-electric Marcel curling irons are extremely hot, and electric curling irons (also hot) sometimes need some help from your hands. A glove's protection comes in handy when using hot tools. - from delicately manipulating the tiniest of curling irons, to using the tips of your fingers to help the hair spiral around the largest of curling irons.
