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.

Only used it once. Already gave you 5 stars. Apparently your company does not check your review?

      Instyler cone with a "heat resistant" pad to use since it doesn't have a kick stand like most curling irons and it does not work... it put scorch marks on my counter and later my daughter used it and it burned her new comforter... and both were on the lowest setting!!

      The old one came with a much better spray that made your hair glisten and smooth and it didn't stink like the new spray. Also the old one I got years ago used to grip the hair tighter for much better and quicker results. For the price and results, I wouldn't recommend. The old one was worth the price until it broke on me :-(

      I do not like my instyler. The curls are not properly formed and the plate does not get as hot as stated.

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

        I have naturally curly hair that has thinned out a lot. All I've done with it is put a little curl product in it when it's wet and scrunch & go. Then my stylist asked it he could blow it out using a round brush while straightening it. It was a whole new look but one I just couldn't do on my own as styling tools are so foreign to me (I'm 53 and trying this for the 1st time). He recommended I try the Instyler Max after he had seen a family member use it. What a game changer!! I watched some YouTube videos to figure out what the terminology used in the instructions looked like in practice, I totally recommend that for newbies.This thing is so user friendly and the results are amazing! The results make me very happy!!

        I ORDERED THIS IN DEC. FOR MY NIECE FOR HER BDAY AS SHE LIKES TO STRAIGHTEN HER HAIR WHICH IS VERY CURLY ITS A JOKE FROM BEGINNING TO END I WOULD PUT ZERO STARS IF POSSIBLE. DO NOT LET THESE PEOPLE HAVE ACCESS TO YOUR DEBIT ACCOUNT I WAS HARRASSED INTO SOME KIND OF PROMOTIONAL THING THAT I KNEW NOTHING ABOUT AND I TOLD THE GUY UP FRONT IF IT COSTS OR IF UR GONNA TRY N CHARGE MY ACCT THEN ABSOLUTELY "NO" BUT HE WAS EXTREMELY PUSHY THE WORST IVE EVER SEEN OR HEARD IN 46 YEARS. HE LED ME TO THINK THAT HE WAS LETTING ME TRY SOMETHING FREE OF CHARGE I SAID OK TO THAT BUT NOT TO TAKE ANYTHING FROM MY ACCT OTHER THAN THE ORDER I KNEW IT WOULD MAKE IT OVERDRAWN
        NOT ONLY DID HE ADD TWO ADDITIONAL CHARGES ONE FOR 25 AND ONE FOR 20. I WAS ALSO CHARGED OVERDRAFT FEES AND UNLESS THEY REMOVE THOSE CHARGES THE BANK WONT REMOVE THE LATE FEES. BECAUSE I DECIDED TO ORDER IT THROUGH A TV AD I WAS SCAMMED. I ALSO ASKED FOR THE WARRANTY FOR TWO YEARS XTRA FOR THEM BECAUSE IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE BUY ONE GET ONE FREE. ITS CHEAPER AND LESS HASSLE TO BUY IN THE STORES DIRECTLY. BUT I ASKED A MAN THAT I CALLED ABOUT THE WARRANTY BECAUSE A WEEK AGO MINE DUE TO THE CORD PULLING IT DOWN IT SLID OFF MY DRESSER AND LANDED ON THE FLOOR ON VERY SOFT CARPETING BUT BOTH OF THE BRUSHES WHICH WERE BARELY HELD IN PLACE BY TWO EXTREMELY SMALL BITS OF PLASTIC BROKE OFF SO I ASKED HIM ABOUT THE WARRANTY AND WAS TOLD IT WAS CONSIDERED NEGLIGENCE BECAUSE IT SLID OF THE DRESSER AND THE WARRANTY WOULD NOT COVER IT AND IM EXTREMELY CAFERUL WITH MY STUFF BUT THIS WAS RIDICULOUS SO NOT ONLY WOULD THEY NOT REPLACE THE MONEY THEY TOOK FROM MY ACCT FOR THINGS I KNOW NOTHING ABOUT AND DID NOT WANT THEY WONT FIX OR REPLACE MINE SO THEY ALREADY GOT 75$ FROM ME SO IF THEY CHANGE THEIR MINDS I WILL PAY THE REST OF WHAT I OWE BUT UNLESS THEY DO I WILL NOT THEY HAVE ALREADY COST ME 175$ ALL TOGETHER I DONT HAVE THAT KIND OF MONEY TO WASTE AND WILL ABSOLUTELY NEVER ORDER ANYTHING FROM TV CLASSY?NO WAY
