      So due to Medical reasons I had to cut my long hair off to short and my larger wand just didn't work for my hair. This beauty is awesome! I can now have my Beachy wave look even with my short thin hair now! Love love love it!! #bestbuyever

        Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

        This curler is super great! i have been looking for a good curler for years and this one heats up fast, is easy to use, and keeps my hair in good curls when i put it to the highest temp (which is really good and high!). my only downside is that when it is super hot it is pretty easy to burn yourself so just be careful.

                I wanted to get more even curls, but this basically straightened my hair. The ends of my hair are often fuzzy, and because you have to wrap your hair around the wand, the ends remain untouched. It's not a bad product, it just didn't work for my hair. A curling iron with a clip thing to hold the ends of my hair would have worked better.

                          • Q:

                            I bought this for my asymmetrical bob, which is longer in front (chin) shorter in back. I'm worried that the tapered wand won't give me the effect I want - beach waves. I tried to use a 1 inch barrel curling iron, but kept getting kinks, so I decided to try the tapered wand, but am afraid that the 1/2 inch end will make my waves look uneven. Should I look for a non tapered wand or can I achieve the look I want with the tapered wand I purchased? Thank you!

                              The Nano Ceramic Tapered Iron will give you the beach wave look. Make sure to loosen the curl. Another tip is not to leave your hair on the Tampered Iron to long. I also recommend checking out the internet for tutorials.

                            Hi,

                            I have an angled lob, in the front it is collarbone length and in the back it is above my shoulders. Which size will be best to achieve beachy/wavy hair?

                            My hair is medium to thick, and is naturally curly/wavy but straightens/blow dries easily thanks to keratin treatments in the past.

                            Thank you!

                              1-1/4" would be perfect! For chin length, you can even use a smaller barrel such as the 1" to achieve waves.
