Works good on high heat and made the wave I needed but I had to do small pieces so it took long. I was hoping to use on medium and that high would take more hair.

Best Uses

  • Straight Hair

Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

This definitely takes some getting used to. It doesn't come with a heat-protectant glove, like I hoped it would. I have the 1" size and it's a little hard to maneuver. I used the heat setting in the middle, as suggested, but it might work better on hotter temperatures for my hair. I'm not going to give up on it just yet, but I would really be cautious about buying it.

        Best Uses

          Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

          I used this curling iron for a wedding and I had to redo the girls curls several times because the curls kept falling out. I purchased a very expensive spray (several bottles) from ULTA for $20 a bottle that was recommended to me from an ULTA stylist and it didn't hold the curls at all. I wish I could return this iron because I wasted my money on it and it took longer to complete their wedding hair.

                Worked great making curves and still had a lot of body the next day. I gave it a four because I just got it and don't know how long it will hold up.

                      Yes, you can certainly use the Rainbow Gold Curling Iron. For fine hair, we recommend setting to a lower temperature setting for best results.

                      Hot Tools' curling irons work best on hair that is shoulder length or longer, though you can certainly use them on shorter lengths!

                      Hot Tools Styling Iron Cleaner wipes off burnt-on, caked-on styling product from the plates/barrel of your heat styling tool; it features a safe, non-toxic formula that has no adverse effect on the finish of your tool.
