    Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

    For years I have longed for curls that last! I have color treated straight hair that just could not seem to hold any curl longer than an hour. I tried hot rollers, curling irons, air brushes .. just about everything. I finally decided to try a curling wand. After speaking with a consultant at my local Ulta store, I took the plunge and purchased the 1 1/4 inch tapered iron by Hot Tools. I was pleasantly surprised that it worked as well as she said! I have always used drugstore products but this proves a little extra money goes a long way. The iron itself was a bit weird to use at first but once you figure out the technique it goes super fast. I never curl on freshly washed hair, use a bit of texturing wax and heat activated texture spray before curling and a spritz of hairspray after curling. The curls add bounce and volume .. something I've been trying to accomplish for years!

    The description calls this "flipperless" ... I miss the flipper. Nothing wrong with the iron. It did what it advertised. But took too long and not worth the effort to get used to it.

      Thankfully it came with a glove to protect your hand, or I would have burned my fingers multiple times! Once I figured out how to hold the culing iron and position my arms I got the desired look. I will be returning it to get a standard curling iron.

              This wand is perfect for my 3 girls. They have mid to long thick hair and they love playing around with it. It gives them either a nice tight curl or a beachy wave.

              I bought the product for my daughter and it worked great for a year. After that it quit working. When I called to get a replacement I was two days over the 1 yr warranty and I couldn't get another one. My daughter's friend had the exact same one and hers quit working after she had only had it for a year. When I buy a product I expect it to last a while.

                    I was in need of a new curling iron and my friend had told me to get a wand. I was so nervous to try it because I was unsure how long it would take me to fix my hair or how difficult it would be. I finally decided I was going to try it and I bought this wand. I could NOT be happier. LOVE IT!! It is so easy and quick to do. The best part is it creates a different kind of curl than a normal curling iron. Plus, the curl last for more than a couple of days. Anytime I curl my hair with the wand, I always receive complements on it.

                      Gives hair volume. I used it 3 times and have already gotten the hang of it. Pretty easy to use now and the curls are soft and bouncy. They stay in long and still look good the next day! I really love it, so much I bought the 1 1/4 in non tapered one too. It gives more of a wavy curl this one is a tighter curl.

                            This iron is 90W. Hot Tools does not recommend using it in non-110V-120V outlets.
