          I have EXTREMELY straight hair. Even when I let it dry on it's own I still just have naturally straight hair. Curling irons do not work for me. I can curl my hair and in 30 minutes it's straight with a tiny wave. I decided to get this Hot Tools because I love their products and I fell in love. My hair stays curly for not only the entire night, but through the night and the next day! It works GREAT!

                    This makes getting ready so easy. I was using a flat iron to create waves which was difficult and time consuming. I can achieve better results in just a fraction of the time.

                      I've been looking at curling wands for months trying to decide on the perfect one, and I can say I'm very satisfied with this purchase. It leaves great curls that last all night even with just a light working hairspray, and my hair never holds a curl without falling flat or using maximum hold products. Great product for the price and my first curling wand.

                      I have always used Hot Tools when it comes to curling my hair, but this wand is by far the best purchase I have ever made! It heats up in record speed and makes the perfect sized curls. I am obsessed with this wand and I would buy it again and again!

                              It measures 3/4" at the tip and 1-1/4" at the base. If you want waves, that one or the 1 1/2" option would be great for you!

                              The difference is the material of each -

                              CeramicTI Tourmaline (purple) - Ceramic Tourmaline surface with titanium additive emits gentle far-infrared heat and negative ions to increase hydration and shine while reducing frizz.

                              24K gold plated (gold) - Even heat distribution create long-lasting curls and waves leaving hair looking smooth and glossy.

                              NanoCeramic (black & white) - NanoCeramic barrel creates an ultra smooth surface for frizz-free styles.
