      Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

      Plug in and get going, heats up fast, 1-1/4 barrel is perfect for curling or waving and adding texture and body! I love the long cord for easy behind the head reach and functionality when traveling and the outlet is too far from the mirror. Perfect curl size for short or long hair.

            I have purchased this brand before this is my 3 purchase due to the quality this will probably be my last. This one particularly the heat setting is a little off I have it at a 350 and it's just warm to the touch.

              Grabs hair a bit tight and snags it, but not sure if it is just because it is so new

                            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.
