      I went to use this for the second time and it didn't curl. It would get warm but never got hot and the clamp didn't stay tightly shut.

        I loved this product! It heated up quickly. And it worked great on long, thick curly hair. The curls held in place and it minimized frizzy hair. However, the heating element stopped working after 6 or so months. Keep your receipt if you purchase this wand. Seems to be a common problem.

          I've only tried using drug store quality curling irons because I had to idea that spending a little more would make such a difference. I have THE THICKEST hair, with a tiny bit of wave and this curling iron (paired with some Kendra Volume25) gave me great loose curls that stayed for about 24 hrs (with my previous iron they only stayed for about 20 mins... so this was a huge improvement)!

                I fell in love with this curling iron, it was perfect for my hair type and the rainbow gold goes with all of my other tools. Unfortunately, the on switch has completely gone out and I can no longer use it. It was kind of hit and miss for a few months and then it stopped working all together. I don't curl my hair a ton so I was really surprised that it gave out on me already. Ulta can't provide any support because I've had it for like 3 years and Hot Tools won't even repair it.

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

                  When I curl my hair I usually use a wand but it is way too short to easily use. My old curling iron didn't get as hot as my wand so it wouldn't hold curl for very long. When shopping for a new curling iron I asked one of the ULTA stylists if she thought it was worth it to get the extended barrel. She said it would make doing my hair easier and faster. She was right! I love that I can set the heat hot enough to hold my curl and I can do my full head of hair in 10 minutes or less. No more burnt thumbs from using my short wand. Plus the rainbow barrel is super cute.

                    I'm not a big fan of hot tools but I wanted to give this one a try and actually really enjoy using this curll'er on my hair. Its easy to move around and if you turn it on as your finishing drying your hair it will be ready to go.

                      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

                        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?

                          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.
