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

    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!

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

      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.

            I was looking for a new curling iron to get more bigger curls & I feel in love with this! And the best part is that the clamp doesn't rip your hair out!!!

              I love love the extra long barrel. I can spread my hair out a little more instead of wrapping it around itself over and over. It works perfect for my long hair. It gets really hot. It makes bigger curls which I prefer. All the way around it think this is a great product.

                I bought this product because the lady at Ulta told me it was a good dupe for the beach waver iron. Wrong. I have somewhat fine hair and she told me it would create beach waves. It created no curls whatsoever. Sad :(

                        The total barrel length of this curling iron is 7-1/4". The real useable area is almost 6" from the bend in the flipper to the rotating cool tip. It is 2" longer than a standard curling iron.
