Big, bouncy curls are everywhere this fall, as demonstrated by the gorgeous celebs above. No need for curl envy, though — all you need is the right tools to get the look at home! Whether you have fine hair like Patricia Clarkson, thick hair like Kyra Sedgwick, or textured hair like Gabrielle Union, we’ve found the best hair tools to help you achieve the curls of your dreams.

DryBar The Bouncer Diffuser

Best for textured hair

Buy from Sephora, $34

Already have a head full of curls? Enhance them with a diffuser. A diffuser blow-dryer attachment, like this one from Dry Bar, disperses airflow all around hair, preserving its natural curl pattern and eliminating the nozzle’s stream of frizz-inducing heat. To do: Place hair ends into diffuser and scrunch until dry.

Bed Head Curlipops Spiral 1″ Styling Iron

Best for medium to thick hair

Buy from Ulta, $30

Reining in thick hair to create uniform curls can be difficult. But a spiral wand, like this one from Bed Head, can help. The design acts as a guide, so you know where to place hair for even, defined curls. To do: Wrap one-inch sections of hair around the wand, alternating the way curls fall (toward and away from the face). Once cool, comb through with fingers.

Remington Pro Wet2Style Hair Dryer and Volumizing Brush

Best for fine hair

Bed Bath & Beyond

Buy from Bed Bath & Beyond, $40

Notorious for losing their curl fast, styling finer tresses with a round blow-dryer brush helps lock curls in as hair dries. To do: Wrap two-inch sections of towel-dried hair around a thermal brush like this one from Remington and slowly twirl strands inward while pulling down toward hairs’ ends.
