Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

I love that there is an actual on off switch. Glove that comes with wand is very heat resistant. This wand leaves beautiful curls that last 3-4 days (with proper care and use). If you just want to add a couple loose curls here and there the wand heats quick enough for on the go. My holy grail tool!

    Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

    Hair glides nicely over the barrel, but the heat glove still gets hot, so you still need to be mindful when trying to form a close, tight, curl. The curl, onced formed, doesn't hold for long. I have natural 3c hair.I guess to each is on.

        Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

        I've had this for a few years and I don't use it too often because my hair is wavy and I'm often too lazy to straighten it before I curl it but when I do use it, it's not bad. I wish the wand was the same size all the way through and because of that it's not always reliable. I like that it heats up quickly and is on a scale of 1-10 because it simplifies the temperature. I don't like the stand at the bottom because either way it's a nuisance. If it's down, then it's in the way of my hand placement and if it's up, it's in the way of the hair being curled.

        In all, it's not a bad curler. It doesn't do anything wrong but the way it's made makes it hard for me (personally) to use.

            I used this curling wand to create loose waves in my hair, and I've never gotten more compliments on a hair style that I have done myself and not had done in a salon. The curls hold all day while I'm working, and if I'm feeling really lazy, I can even sleep on them and just barely touch them up the next morning.

                I like this product a lot and use it in place of my straightener.
                However, after using the wand, I quickly realized that the result I was hoping for relies in a curling wand (same brand even), that is the same size all the way around from top to bottom.
                I'm not crazy about the tapered size.

                I have natural wavy hair that needs minimal work to create those desired beach perfect waves. After a couple of sessions of practice (I have 2 left feet for hands), my hair was exactly as I wanted it.

                  This is my absolute favorite styling tool! It gives the perfect "victorias secret" curls it see on Pinterest gives amazing volume heats up so quickly. I've had this for a year now and use it way more than my straightener, it's amazing. 6 stars!

                  Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

                  I tried doing the beachy, wavy hair with a flat iron and was never successful at it. Upon the recommendation of my hair dresser, I tried Hot Tools and it worked! Beautiful curls in under 30 mins! I have a lot of hair, with a natural wave, layered, colored and long. It used to take me forever to use a flat iron! I used a leave in conditioner before styling also upon the recommendation of the consultant. Curls held well all day and the next day as well. I didn't even set with a hair spray.

                  The iron heats up fast and consistently. Tried a cheaper brand and ended up returning it because it just did not get hot enough and curls just didn't not last. Not with Hot Tools! Very pleased! And even more pleased with a 20% coupon!
