Item #: 2500737

Ask a Question

Options

A flat iron constructed of precision engineered, 1 1/4", 100% solid rounded ceramic floating plates. Ceramic can be heated at maximum temperatures, is corrosion resistant, has high glide-through properties and requires less passes of the iron through the hair, resulting in less damage. Negative ion therapy conditions hair, keeping it lustrous and healthy.

Straighten hair or create flowing, soft curls with the versatility of the Silhouette's rounded plates. Negative ions disbursed through the ceramic plates seal natural moisture in the hair cuticle for maximum frizz-free shine, ensuring perfect styling and optimum health. The ergonomic design features a soft touch finish, temperature control from 140 F to 410 F, and a salon-style swivel power cord.

      The plates on this are so short it doesn't work on any kind of thick hair. It says 450 degrees but there is no way...won't work on more than a 1/4 inch section of hair. Won't curl hair at all. It doesn't glide through the hair it just stops. Easily the worst straightener I have ever used. Can't believe it is that expensive.

          The plates didn't align, and every time I pulled it through my hair, it pulled hair out. When I returned it to the store, the girl working there said she was using the same flat iron, because her friend took her favorite one on a trip with her, and she couldn't wait to have it back. She had the very same problem I did.
          I would have given this a 0 star, but the page wouldn't let me.

          Snagged my hair and top layer of plates were cracking off

              Returned. When clamp of the plates did not align, leaving a big space where the air would be straightened. On top of that, the top layer of plates was cracking on the sides (visible before first use). I tried it anyway and as expected, it ended up snagging my hair. Ended up purchasing the Bio Ionic one pass which I am SUPER happy with.

                  I was very nervous to purchase a new straightener as I have fine, difficult wavy hair that tangles and gets caught in EVERYTHING as well as struggles to hold a style (straightened or curls) which has posed a problem when finding a straightener previously. This straightener has not caught or pinched my hair ONCE! It straightens easily with just a pass or two through a layer of my hair, no need to clamp it crazy tight or repeat a million times, frying your strands. I'd also highly recommend this as a first straightener if anyone is looking for one for a young relative, etc. No matter how flat against my scalp I press this thing (even the plate sides!), I have found it next to impossible to burn my scalp or ears, bar actually clamping down on an ear. I'm so impressed! Plus it's blue and adorable, which is never a bad thing. The soft touch texture to the straightener is very nice on my hand as I use it. My previous one made my hand a bit sore which hasn't happened with this at all. Super pleased so far and can't wait to see how long this lasts. Hopefully a long time because I adore it!

                              I've had mine for 6yrs now and it still works great! I love this straightener. it only takes me one slide through and my hair stays straight. my hair is wavy and stubborn. I tried CHI and after a couple weeks it stopped heating up.

                                I loved this product when I got it. Compared to a CHI I enjoyed a lot more. However one day i picked it up and the ceramic pieces on the inside were cracked and falling out of the straightner. The quality of the straightener isn't as good as I thought.... :( And now it snags my hair because it is cracked.

                                    Yes it does have floating plates, by having floating plates it allows you to have more flexibility in using your tool. The freedom allows the two sides to adjust based on the angle to get as close to each other as possible. The closer the plates get, the more you will be able clamp the hair correctly.

                                    The Silhouette is made from pure ceramic stone so you have to be careful in terms of not dropping it or banging it around. Will she be doing her own hair? I would recommend the Megastar; with single-pass technology, it will be much easier and quicker, and gentle on the hair.

                                    Hi, the Silhouette is dual voltage so you will not need a converter but you might need an adapter. In Cuba, they use 4 types of power sockets: Type A, B, C, & L. The Silhouette is Type A. So you might need adapters for some sockets, but it is usually easier to find adapters at the destination if your plug is already being used in the country. Sometimes different cities uses different systems.
                                    Hope that helped!

                                    hi, yes it is dual voltage but you will probably need a foreign plug adapter to ensure you can actually use the outlets. There are 3 types of outlets used in India - Type C, Type D, and Type M. The best bet is to purchase a foreign plug adapter kit since they include multiple adapters for plugs from all over the world.

                                    I hope that helps!

                                    The Silhouette will work better than Chi because it has solid ceramic plates and ceramic heating elements which let you get silky smooth hair with only 1 pass (for most hair types) and leave your hair frizz free throughout the day.
