      Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

      I needed a new curling wand, because I have long thick hair and the one inch wand I had made me look like Debra Messing. I've only been using this for a few days, but so far it's been awesome. I am not good at doing my hair, but I've received so many compliments this week. My only complaint is that it could be longer for people with long hair but overall works great.

        Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

        I talked to an associate at Ulta before buying this, and she sold me on it. It was a little awkward at first, as I'm used to the flipper kind. It came with a glove, but I use it without. I did get a couple small burns, but I got those from the flipper kind as well. I LOVE the curl you get from it. Great purchase. I don't know whether I would've paid full price, but they were on sale, and I had a coupon as well. Overall great product!

                  This is easy to use and leaves beautiful curls! My hair is very straight and reluctant to hold a curl, but I used this and soft curls lasted all night. The iron is long and gently tapers to accommodate longer hairstyles. It heats up quickly and has a range of temperatures that is easy to change! High quality curling iron

                    I have super thick hair and some irons will not even curl it. I've had this wand for 4 years and it is bomb.com. My curls last all day weather I have short or long hair. It is easy to use and you need this in your life.

                        • 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.

                          I have super fine, pin straight hair and it's currently long and I am on the fence about getting a bob. What size barrel would you recommend that would work if I keep my hair long or cut it? Looking for beachy waves.

                          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!
