Select the right temperature for your hair type: Low (375 degrees) for fine hair; Color Treated (392 degrees) to preserve your hair color and prevent fading; High (410 degrees) for resistant hair

    Comments about Sam Villa Professional Straightening & Shaping Iron:

    This is an excellent product! You can tell it is a good quality ceramic, and it creates smooth, frizz free style with no snagging. Also, it doesn't dry out hair. It is very easy to use, and glides through the hair. It has 3 settings, low, med. and high. The low setting is great for everyday use, and I found it made my hair very sleek. I didn't even have to use the high setting. I think the high setting would be good for very very coarse hair. I wanted to write a review because it can be difficult to find a good quality flat iron. This is definitely a good flat iron. The heat feels even and consistent so you don't have to keep going over sections!

    Love the iron but quit working after 6 months

        Comments about Sam Villa Professional Straightening & Shaping Iron:

        Wish I had read reviews before buying. Have another very popular brand and Sam villa out performs it but should have lasted longer than 6 months. So disappointed. Was getting ready to buy their hair dryer too. Not now. Can't find my receipt for the flat iron and Ulta isn't wanting to work with me. So disappointed in Ulta and Sam Villa..

              I love this iron.... But it only works for a few months. I bought my first one from the Ulta website and after 3 months it stopped working correctly. It would heat up but once I lifted it the light would go off. I thought it was a faulty cord so I took it back to Ulta. After some grief they let me exchange it for a new one. Now, 4 months later the same thing is happening. After reading the other reviews I'm glad it isn't just me having this problem. Such a shame because the iron is a great design and I really liked the rounded edges but I'm not going to give this a third try...

                  Comments about Sam Villa Professional Straightening & Shaping Iron:

                  I bought this straightener because it had better reviews than the Chi. I was excited and really loved this straightener, but after 3 months I would plug it in, it would come on for a few seconds, then cut off again. So I contacted the manufacturer and they sent me a label to return it. I received my replacement and thought it would be done. After another 2 months the replacement wouldn't even turn on! So I took it back to an Ulta store and haggled with them about a refund and miraculously got one. I won't purchase a Sam Villa product again! Don't waste your money! I got a nice Hot Tools as a replacement.

                  I have medium length, thick wavy hair that I like to straighten and sometimes curl or flip the edges. This flat iron has those great rounded edges that put such a nice curl in my hair without having to heat up my curling iron also. Very lightweight and I like the 3 heat settings. It was a little pricey, but it was on sale and I had a coupon and Ulta has a good return policy if I wasn't happy with it. But looks like I'm keeping this one.

                      My chi finally died after a few years of use. In doing my research, I saw this straightener had wonderful reviews so I decided to try something new. At first, I loved this straightener and thought the "color treatment" option was wonderful. The straightener started to take longer and longer to heat up until after about five months, stopped heating up all together. There is a one year warranty but the warranty requires you keep the receipt (which I lost) and pay for shipping back to the manufacturer... Don't buy this!
