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