                Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Professional Marcel Iron:

                I have super fine hair that is very hard to curl and I've tried many curling irons. This one actually curls my hair. I still need mousse and hairspray to make it stay longer, but by far the best one I have found. It did take a day or two to get used to the fact that the handle is slightly different and the spring rod is on the opposite site, but I like that it holds the hair tight because my hair is so thin that it used to just fall out of the others. Gets very hot so be careful and it does not have a cap on the end, so if you are used to that, be careful that you don't touch it (common sense but we are creatures of habit)

                    I would give 0 stars if that was an option. The curler never heated up... ever! I plugged it in right out of the box and nothing. I used different plugs... and nothing. Very disappointed as I was really excited for this purchase. Will be returning.

                      I love this curling iron. I've purchased several curling irons recently and wasn't satisfied until I got this one. It gets really hot really fast and the curls come out perfect and last all day. I didn't even realize when I bought it how the handle swivels so that you don't have to turn your wrist. It's fantastic!

                      I've always used a flat iron to make curls so I decided to purchase my first actual curling iron. I got the 1 1/4 inch and it makes nice soft curls. I was afraid I wouldn't get the hang of using it seeing that the marcel does not have a spring handle but it wasn't too difficult! I still need practice but overall it is a nice curling iron and also it was shipped very quickly within 3 days after I made the purchase!

                        I was worried i wouldn't be able to get the hang of this iron, but it was pretty easy to catch on. I have very fine hair that never holds a curl. After a few minutes my hair just looks like a mess instead of having actual curls. I decided to try this iron because my hair stylist uses one and my hair seems to take to the curl a bit better. I wish i would have went with a smaller barrel, but the curl does hold better than the hot rollers i would typically use. The iron is great quality and i would defiantly recommend to friends!

                            It seems the thicker the barrel the shorter it gets. That's what I can tell by the pictures. Is that true? I have medium, below the shoulder bob. What size do you recommend? Sometimes I find it difficult to get all my hair in the barrel with the current 1' curler I have from Hot Tools.

                              Actually, the length of the barrel is 4" on all of the models; the only thing that varies between the models is the barrel diameter.

                              For your hair length, we think the 1" or the 3/4" should be perfect! If you've had trouble in the past w/ 1" barrels, go for the smaller 3/4". Enjoy! :-)

                            I have medium hair but I like to change my hair style every so often to medium to long. Recently I have lost some hair so my hair isn't as thick (hoping for it to come back) so I'd say it's at a fairly average thickness and not too thin. What barrel would you recommend? I cant decide over the 1 inch or the 3/4 inch barrel since I change my hair style from medium length to long. I also have wavy, mixed-textured hair (fine on top, more coarse towards the ends) and sometimes curly. I think the 1 inch would be great but worried it's to thick and big. To be more specific, I love the mermaid curls and also the everyday curls (not the S wave)

                            I have a very layered bob that falls about an inch above my shoulders. I always have to use several products and then dry it with a diffuser. I would like to use a curling iron to add in curls that have fallen. I've only been able find a 1 inch, but when I use one I end up straightening a piece of hair. Could you suggest a size that might work best for me please?

                            What is the difference between the Marcel and the normal gold one? Also which hot tools curling iron would be the best (gold, purple, or silver) for my hair (it's long and thick)?

                              Marcel irons have a locking mechanism to hold the hair around the barrel. They are frequently used by professional stylists in salon environments.

                              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.

                              Any would be suitable for long, thick hair.
