Let’s face it: curling your hair in Singapore is such a chore.

You spend a good 20 minutes — if you’re well practised enough — twisting and turning both your wrists in all directions before heading outside, before realising the humidity has caused your mane to fall flat in no time at all.

While perming your hair at the salon can give you easy curls, we’re not up for permanent hair damage just yet. This is where automatic hair curlers come in. They help to take the time and trouble out of styling our hair in the morning, and they are great for those who aren’t too adept at all the rules of hair curling and how to recreate them. Pair them with some heat protectant and a texturising spray to really lock in the curls and you’ll be good to go, even in the tropical summer heat.

Read on for the best automatic hair curlers you can get in Singapore for fuss-free curls every day.

The Dyson Airwrap may just be about the most expensive automatic hair curler out there, but trust us when we say it’s worth every penny. The device uses a special technology — similar to jet engines, no less — that creates a vortex to pull your hair towards the barrel, all whilst adjusting the heat on its surface so that you get the perfect curl without any accidental burns. A worthy investment for those who spend hours curling their hair every morning, the Dyson Airwrap needs a fair bit of learning and practice to get it to its full potential.

If you’re looking for a straightforward automatic hair curler, sans the steep price tag and the fancy attachments, your best bet will have to be the Vivid & Vogue Automatic Hair Curler. It comes with an on-off button, and two buttons for users to choose between an inward or outward curl. It, however, does not come with a heat indicator, so make sure to spray some heat protectant on your hair before styling.

The HuiHao Automatic Hair Curler is incredibly easy to use: just select your desired temperature, place your hair into the device and watch as it rotates your hair into the perfect curl. The lightweight, small size of the device, however, creates a drawback for those with a long, thicker mane, and is most suitable for those with hair just below their shoulders or shorter.

A trip to the USB charger and you’ll be free to use it without entangling your arms in a wiry mess.
