MAX 2 - Way Rotating Iron 1 1/4"

Pink

Item #: 2278400

Options

With 360% more straightening power, the MAX 2 - Way Rotating Iron is preferred over flat irons for straightening and controlling frizz, while adding volume and shine. The innovative 2 - way rotation technology allows the barrel to rotate in the natural direction of hair without ever having to change hands or position. This maximizes the smoothing and polishing action of the rotating barrel.

The heated rotating barrel and floating plate straighten without creasing or crushing hair, effortlessly creating an amazing blowout look full of volume. The tourmaline ceramic barrel evenly distributes heat to help protect from damage while the ionic bristles reduce frizz and polish hair for vibrant shine. The MAX 2 - Way Rotating Iron delivers maximum straightening results, while offering the ultimate styling versatility to create body, loose curls, and beachy waves.

Key Features:
  • Heated Rotating Barrel
  • 2 - Way Rotation
  • Tourmaline Ceramic Floating Plate
  • 4 Heat Settings up to 425F
  • Ionic Bristles
  • Automatic Shut Off
  • Professional Swivel Cord
  • Accessories Included: Thermal Guard, Heat Mat, Removable Cool Tip

MAX's innovative 2 - way rotation technology lets you easily control the direction of the rotating barrel without ever switching hands. To change the barrel rotation direction, simply "double click" by closing the barrel to the bristles twice quickly. With the barrel rotating right and left you can style hair away from your face or toward your face.

To straighten, close MAX around a section of hair and glide slowly from root to ends. MAX will perfectly smooth and polish hair for a straight and sleek style without crushing or creasing the hair.

To give hair an extra lift at the roots, close MAX around a section of hair at the scalp and let the barrel rotate from root to tips for 3 to 5 seconds before gliding down through to the ends of your hair. For added volume, rotate the barrel in the opposite direction from tip to root to create a backcombing effect.

For soft curls and beachy waves, wrap a section of hair around the barrel from root to ends and close MAX around the hair section and let the rotating barrel do all the work. Make sure to hold MAX in place while closed around the hair section and do not pull through the hair. Let the barrel rotate for 3 to 5 seconds before opening the barrel and letting the curl drop.

    The Instyler is FABULOUS!!!!! I waited a couple of years to actually purchase this product and I am kicking myself for not buying it sooner. I can have beach waves, soft curls or straight voluminous hair all from one product!!! Watch YouTube video as product recommends as you are on your way to multiple hair styles. LOVE IT!!!!!!

      I love the new look of the instyler but I wish it worked the same as the old one. This one has the 2 way rotating but it pulls your hair a lot & it hurts. The end result was beautiful but so much hair got stuck. I had to return it & went back to my all time Bio Ionic One Pass. It's pricier but worth the price.

          Comments about InStyler MAX 2-Way Rotating Iron 1-1/4":

          This is the second InStyler that I have purchased. The original one finally quit working after at least a decade. It did not feature the reverse the spin direction which is not a big deal for me. This newer model has four settings, the older version had three. I have shoulder length wavy/curly thick hair. When I want to wear a sleek and polished look, it is so quick and easy to achieve this style with this device! I like the extra setting as I use it on the third highest level. Heats up very rapidly (quicker than the first version). Just make sure you let it completely cool down before placing the barrel next to the nylon brushes. If you don't, the heat will cause them to eventually deteriorate and you will start to lose bristles This newer version seems to eliminate a lot more frizz as you go along for a sleeker result. Salon perfect results!
