Excellent Tool, Cute Litte Package
I received my Solia Mini Ceramic Curling Iron within days of ordering it. This tool lives up to the brand I have known in the past year. It heats up quickly and makes beautiful curls. The clamp doesn't pull your hair as you glide it towards your ends, which is something that will most likely happen with a drug store brand. And the size is perfect for medium length hair for every day use. I bought it at $30 and it is worth getting it without spending the extra $50 to get it free. You will not regret this purchase.

Quick Curls To Go
I couldn't wait to try the Solia Mini Curling Iron, since I've always wanted a mini ceramic iron for travel. I'm a VIP Reviewer, but I'm a customer too, and this is perfectly priced for a purse-sized iron. It heats up in under a minute and creates beautiful medium curls in just a second or two; there's no need to hold each strand in place and count to set each curl. Just glide the Solia through a section of your hair -- about as much as you'd place in a standard-sized curling iron -- roll the cur, hold just a second, then release the curl.

Speaking of which, holding this iron demonstrates one of its best features. The main grip is very comfortable, actually rather soft, reminding me of a well-made kitchen utensil (talk about a good grip!), while the tip of this curling iron is designed for precise, fingertip holding with a cool-touch material. The tip of the curling iron barrel also has a small nub which acts as half of the iron's built-in stand. The other half of the iron rest is opposite your thumb where it rests on the barrel-release button, just an inch or so above your fingers at the edge of the grip.Couple this clever design with a swiveling electrical cord and you'll find it easy to set the Solia mini iron down on any counter, high or low.

I found just two minor drawbacks to this iron, barely enough to remove a quarter-star if I could (though the iron's value is terrific for the price). I do see a travel iron here, so while it fits perfectly into a small gym bag, any purse larger than a clutch, or a standard toiletries case, it doesn't include a case of its own. Also, though this iron heats up very quickly, the trade-off for one of the fastest curling irons I've ever used is that it takes five to ten minutes to cool back down. Neither of these things are real problems -- the lack of a traveling case keeps the price low for you, and a slow cool-down time is typical with powerful curling irons. These are just details you should know before making a decision.

The Solia Mini Ceramic Curling Iron packs a LOT of power into such a small hair styling tool, and several excellent features, too. I find myself curling my hair more often because it's so lightweight and easy to use. If you're looking for a travel curling iron, or want to stop wedging your full-sized iron into your gym bag, Solia is your answer.

Perfect Size For Travel And As Powerful As Full Size
I wasn't expecting much from this mini-iron but needed a more compact curling iron with dual voltage for travel purposes. I was pleasantly surprised. I have pretty thick hair and need a high heat and this one certainly delivered. I can curl my hair in about the same time as a full size iron. In fact, I may even use this when not travelling. It has a great feel to it and the quality is excellent. Love it.
