      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!

            Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Professional Marcel Iron:

            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!

                  After watching the stylist do my hair with a Marcel Wand I decided I wanted one so I could get that great style at home. I bought mine and practiced on my daughter after watching the tutorials online. I found it very easy to learn how to use and to use in general. My hair looks better and my curls hold great. I love this, because my daughter's hair is very thick and I can even give her great curls. I won't any other kind of curling again.

                    First off, if your not used to using a Marcel iron this may be difficult for you to use but there's plenty tutorials to learn. The swivel type handle makes curling so easy. Sometimes I hold the iron shut Nd wrap my hair around it for lose beach waves! Also it allows you to choose the temperature you want! This iron is amazing and a must have!

                      There is a reason that this is the iron commonly used by the pros! Some people find it a touch tricky to master the technique needed to use this style of curling iron but once you get it down it really is much faster and easier than traditional curling irons. I have carpal tunnel and RA and this iron is MUCH easier on my wrists and hands than other tools. This iron also has a lovely thermostat that goes from 280-430, which is a good range to accommodate both delicate/damaged and thick or heat-resistant hair. It also has an extra long swivel cord. 10/10 would buy again!

                        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)

                          A:

                          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.
