      Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

      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.

          Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

          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.

            Finally, successful waves!

            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!

                Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

                It takes a little while to perfect your technique using this curling wand. When you finally do, the results are quite amazing! I could never get curling irons to do what I wanted them to do until now. It took a while to curl my entire head because I have quite a bit of hair. I don't use the glove that came with it. I went to bed on my hair and most of the curls were still in my hair when I awoke. I used Redken Iron Shape to protect my hair and hold the curl prior to using. For my very stubborn hard to curl hair I used Redken Hot Sets for maximum hold.
