    It has great heat production but, I didn't like the extended wand. It's hard to gradp the hair effectively because the lever clamp piece is so much shorter

        I have very long hair, I love the extra long barrel because it gets the entire piece of hair instead of having to curl it in sections. Also, the fun colors make me feel like a unicorn. I have this same iron in 1.25" and 2" and love them both.

            I have been looking for a curling iron that could handle my long, thick, and naturally curly hair. I finally found one! It does heat up super quick so watch your fingers and neck, but it actually kept my hair curly all evening on 6th for my birthday. Which, is simply amazing. You can run your fingers through your curls and they wont fall flat. This rainbow barrel leaves your hair looking like gold.

              Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Salon Curling Iron/Wand - Extended Barrel:

              This iron stinks. The curls initially look nice, and it's easy to smooth the hair out with it. However they fall out within an hour - and hairspray isn't much of a help. I have very long sewn in Bohyme extensions, and this just does nothing in my extension hair, or my natural hair. It's a beautiful tool, but it's just not effective. It also doesn't hold it's heat well while you're styling, so it takes way too long to achieve a good look. It is good for smoothing and creating some volume on a second day, but just not worth it overall. I returned my first one to Ulta thinking I just got a bad iron. The replacement is just as poor, and I wouldn't recommend this at all. I ordered the Bioionic iron instead and am hoping for better results.

                Ok, seeing all these luscious curls on the heads of beautiful ladies around town, I decided to finally give a curling iron a go. I haven't got too much time for hair (skin and makeup being more concerning), but I am glad I did. After a few practice attempts (and burns!), I finally got this down. The curls, depending on how you section and manage your strands, was amazing. I actually felt like a professional! It got rid of any remaining, minimal, frizz (from my awesome Redken products!) and left my hair shiny and bouncy! Recommended highly from a very low maintenance hair person :) Don't forget the heat protector!

                  First, this curling iron is gorgeous! I love the extended barrel bc I have long thick hair and it makes the prettiest long spiral curls. Other reviews have stated that the twirling tip is bothersome but for me, it's a non issue. I don't keep my hand on the tip anyway. It's also no more cumbersome than a smaller iron. I expect to have this iron for many years. I would definitely buy this again and also recommend it.

                  • Q:

                    What is the difference between this one and the 24k gold extended barrel one, aside from the fact that I don't see 1 1/2 inch being available in the 24k one?

                      A:

                      The Rainbow Gold Curling Iron is also plated in 24K gold, so it provides the same results as the original Gold Curling Iron! The only difference is the outer appearance of the barrel.

                      A:

                      It can only be used with a transformer that one can purchase separately. If you are staying in a hotel there, ask if they have a 110 plug in the bathroom for shavers. It is common in Europe and would allow for the use of this iron with that plug. Otherwise you'll need the converter.
