A Must-buy For Anyone Wanting A *good* Curling Iron!
I chose to buy this straightener because I saw it being used by several people on youtube and I loved the results they got with it.. Just see the beautiful curls achieved by this curling iron here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aCobPBIM2lU
Since I have naturally curly hair, I first blowdried it to get it straight and then started curling it with the iron. and omg.. it heats up real fast, and curls really well! I first purchased the Hot Tools Spring Curling Iron but was not pleased with it at all! It didn't curl well at all! The curl was verry loose and blah. I could actually create a better "curl" with my Solia Straightener! Anyways, when I tried this curling iron, I was soo happy with the results! It created beautiful, silky, smooth curls (probably because of the ceramic).
Overall, I loveee this curling iron and would recommend it to anyone who wants a very good curling iron which will create beautiful, perfect curls.
Love, love, love it!

I bought this curling iron to replace the BaByliss one I had before
and really liked (the cord wore out b/c I was wrapping it around
the iron to store it, probably my fault). I have been really
frustrated with my purchase because the iron has a strange power
problem or something--it has a red light when its off and a green
light when its on and hot, but mine constantly starts flashing
both at the same time and the iron goes cold. Ive tested it in
different plugs in my house and in hotel rooms, and it does it in
all of them, making it very difficult to use. I wont purchase
another BaByliss product now because Im worried Ill get another
one like this. However, when it actually works, it is a great

Heats Quickly...not Durable
I liked this curling iron--heated quickly, very hot, didnt stick
to my hair. My hair holds curl well anyway, but this was perfect
for days when I wanted to straighten my hair--Id blow my hair out
with a round brush, then use this to smooth and curve ends under.
After 2 years, it broke--the heating element must have fried or
something. I paid quite a bit for mine (from a salon), and expected
a lot more life out of it. Its ironic that one of my old drugstore
curling irons from 10-15 years ago still works great! Guess you
dont always get what you pay for.

Clip Very Weak.
Was very disappointed with this iron. The clip is very weak and
does not provide a secure grip when curling hair. Thought it was
just the iron I received but other reviews confirm same problem.
Sending it back right away.

Great Curling Iron
I highly recommend this curling iron. It gets hot quickly. It grips
the hair very well, so I dont have to go back and redo the parts
that fell out. It never rips out my hair as some other irons do.
Overall I am extremely pleased!

Worked Great, Then Broke.
I bought this curling iron (3/4" barrel) about two months ago. I
loved it - it curled my hair wonderfully, even at the top, and
without products, my wavy hair stayed curled for 2 days without
needing touch-ups.Then I travelled with it, plugged it in at the
guest bathroom, got one curl in and heard a pop. It cooled down and
hasnt worked since. Im giving this brand another shot because I
LOVED how it curled my hair, and hoping I just got a fluke iron.
Will update with a review when I get it!

Im a cosmetology student in Baltimore, MD and this curling tool
came in our kit and it works wonders for your hair if you know how
to use it, as well as the products you use with it. If you already
take you care of your hair and want a good curling iron to go with,
this is the one for you. Not intended for everyday useage.

Not That Great...
Based on the reviews, I ordered this "cheap substitute" of a CHI.
Do not be deceived. I dont believe for a minute it gets hotter
than a CHI and it certainly doesnt have the spring grip of a CHI
(the spring is weak, requiring less hair per roll = more time). Im
going to return and hope they still have one of the discontinued
CHIs laying around!

A Very Disappointing Curling Iron.
My decision to purchase this curling iron was based the great
reviews. So needless to say I was pretty shocked when I finally
received my curling iron and used it. I was so looking forward to
receiving a nice and reliable curling iron that would fit all of my
basic needs.(get hot, be easy to use, and make my hair pretty)I was
so disappointed. Here is a specific list of why makes this curling
iron a challenge to use and an inferior curling iron overall.The
top clamp doesnt hold down the hair tightly in place very well. It
is pretty loose so my hair easily slipped out.The iron gets very
hot which would be a great attributes if the "safety end" was even
remotely cool enough to touch so you can maneuver the iron though
the process of curling your hair.The thumb rest is too large to
quickly take your finder on and off so by the time you get a hold
of the thing your hair is toast. (I dont have small hands so this
is really odd)My hair was getting more and more static cling as I
was doing my hair in sections, it wasnt my $200 Mason Pearson
brush creating the cling. This has not happened before.The result,
I spent more time trying to create a nice hair style with
disappointing results.I am not going to reveal my favorite curling
iron because I dont want anyone to write off my review as a
promotion for a different brand. I just want to prevent someone
from making the same mistake as I did.
