                Comments about NuMe Online Only Megastar:

                I bought this flat iron with my fingers crossed and could not be happier with it. It truly heats up in 30 seconds (or less). The digital temperature readout shows the numbers ticking up as it heats, so you know when it's truly heated up all the way (no sound indicator for this). You can also adjust the heat during/after it has heated.

                The plates are smooth and snag-free. There is a channel in the middle of one of the plates where the infrared lights sit. The channel edges haven't snagged my hair at all. The matte finish is pretty and hasn't stained or gotten oily. The cord is nice and long. I also appreciate the hinge placement/mechanism - I don't pinch my hand with this flat iron like I have with others.

                And finally, the performance. While it doesn't appear to be marketed as a "one-pass" straightener, it absolutely does straighten in one pass. I have relatively thick hair with a very stubborn wave - this flat iron took care of it with no issue.

                My one gripe is that it gave my hair that "flat iron smell" more intensely than others I've used. However, I've only used it twice so far, so I expect that smell to fade with time.

                  This is the best flat iron I've ever used and I had all higher end previously. I bought 2 one for my daughter in the teal color and one for me in matte black. They're so smooth feeling like velvet texture, the 1st think I said to my daughter as we opened was how good the texture feels. My daughter has course hair and the flat iron has no drag (when brushed first). It leaves her hair full of natural shine and last all day. I have very thin wavy hair and I love creating beachy waves and they last for 2 days with minimal humidity and it curled my bangs forward perfectly.

                    I was using the Chi iron for the past 6 years until it stopped heating up this year. I have long curly hair and researching online and watching YouTube reviews on different flat irons, the Nume Megastar was the one that stood out to me.This flat iron glides through my hair and leaves it super straight, silky, shiny and I like the fact that I can adjust the heat temperature. I love it!

                      Trying to find the right straightener for my fine, frizzy hair. I've tried my best friends Sedu diamond edition straightener and I haven't found anything that compares. When I purchased this product I was hoping it would straighten my hair with ease and create shine. Unfortunately, I had to pass the straightener through my hair several times to get it straight and in the end my hair lost all of it's luster and shine. I had to return this and I'm still on the hunt for the right straightener.

                              Hi, yes they are. Floating plates have a small suspension system that moves and compresses your hair whilst styling, acting as a cushion. This gives our styling tool the ability to move smoothly, without tugging or pulling out your hair. You will notice it has a slight bounce when you press the plate down; this is the way the plates compensate and release some pressure if you press too hard.

                              It's the best (safest) for thin hair (like mine!). The plate is pure ceramic tourmaline (no metal underneath!) so it heats your hair via infrared (from within) versus the heat from metal burning your hair from outside in. Plus it has a bunch of added extra technologies making it NuMe's creme-de-la-creme. You can read more at https://www.numeusa.com/catalog/products/straighteners/megastar.html.

                              Hope it helps!

                              For handling & holding while using, yes. When it's on, do not touch the plates, they will be hot.

                              Hope that helped!

                            Does this iron have curved plates to allow me to flip and curl my hair? Also, does it have an automatic shutoff? If so, how long after turning it on does it shut off?

                              The Megastar can definitely be used to curl hair and has a 60 minute auto shut off feature.
