Not what I expected

By Danielle

from New York, NY

Verified Buyer

Pros

  • Heats up fast

Cons

  • Leaves a kink dent from the clasp in your hair

Best Uses

    Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

    I wanted more of a wand product. It wasn't what I expected and it didn't make my curls look good. The clasp created a kink in the curls instead of just a simple effortless curl. I ended up returning this product. Kinda disappointed

    I use this on all my hair lengths from short to longer. I can do a tight curl or a bouncy curl. I have used this for many years and they last a long time.

    Did NOT curl my hair

    By Lauren E.

    from Philadelphia, PA

    Verified Buyer

    Pros

    • One of the only curlers available in this size

    Cons

    • Does not heat up quickly
    • Hair did not hold curl

    Best Uses

      Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

      I have other (smaller barrel) curlers and wands that work great so I know it's not my hair that's the problem. The size and design are great and after 5 or 10 mins it is very hot, however the curl does not stay for some reason. Several youtube videos say the same thing, so I tried different methods (clean hair, dirty hair, mousse/no mousse, hairspray, etc) to no avail. Will be returning and finding another 2-2.5 in barrel.

                I have been searching for a curling iron, I got tired getting burned using my curling wand! This iron did what I needed and more! Hair glides nicely through, hair curled perfectly.

                      Would you recommend the curler with a clamp or as a wand? Which one is easier to use?

                        This is a personal preference. In my opinion the wand is easier to use. You could search for tutorial online and see what might work better for you.

                      I am leaving for Europe in a couple weeks, and this is the curling iron I currently use, and am in love with.

                      Is this a dual voltage curling iron? Is it safe to use in Europe with just a converter?

                      Any advise would be appreciated! Thank you!

                        A:

                        You can use the 1 1/2" or 2" Gold Spring Curling Iron. To achieve the beach wave once you release your hair from the curling iron pull the curl down while it is still hot so the curl loosens up.
