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.

    I bought this in an effort to add volume that a flat iron sometimes doesn't. This just fried my hair. A must of smell came off of it and my hair just lost sheen, which i didn't think was possible. Brought back immediately and got myself a flat iron.

    This looks and feels like a very well made tool, and yet it's not too heavy to hold for several minutes at a time. In my opinion it delivers on all claims and I love the option on barrel rotation! Great design! My only slight disappointment was difficulty in seeing which way the barrel was turning. Perhaps some kind of mark on the end of the barrel could solve that. Price was high but if it will serve me 2-3 years then it's well worth it. I got the 3/4" one and enjoy it enough that I'd love to have the larger one too. Maybe someday..

    I like that it gives my hair bounce and body. But it doesn't get it really straight. When I use this product it looks more like a blow out.

    This has been my second time purchasing an instyler. My first one was an original instyler, which I had for about 4yrs...till it died out. I LOVE it! I'm latina so my hair needs a lot of heatnand fancy blow out techniques for it to come out looking great, and with the instyler I achieve that plus more. I am an expert at the wavy look, the curls come out soft and natural. The only con would be that I'm not quite used to the barrel turning the other direction. So my hair tends to get tangled because I accidentally keep clicking it. They should of made a button with the option to change the direction of the barrel. Other than that its amazing. If they used my before and afters, I think every woman would have this product.

    I haven't used my new one but the 2 I had before I absolutely loved. I ended up giving both away to 2 of my nieces and knew I needed to replace them. I'm looking forward to using my new instyler. This is the first product I've used that straightens my hair so well and I can get it done so quickly. I've used many products, different flat irons and do on...this is the best iv e used, ever.
