This curling iron heats up quickly and curls my very straight hair so fast. I don't have a lot of time in the morning. I can curl all my hair in less than 15 min. Love, love, love this curling iron.

      Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

      This products just wasn't for me. It is probably good for some people, I just didn't like it. I like my curling iron to glide to the end of my hair so I can roll it around the iron. This one did not. I returned mine and got another hot tools, the purple one, that does slide through your hair so there is no crimp mark.

        Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

        I am so glad I bought this curling iron! If I'm being honest, I was attracted to it because I thought it was pretty. I had my eye on it for awhile. My old curling iron was on it's last legs so I finally bought it. I'm the kind of person who uses a curling iron 3-4 times a week. My hair is curling so much nicer with this tool, I love the temp control, I feel like my hair looks and feels healthier and the curl will hold for 3 days if I don't wash it out. I love it so much I'm going to purchase other styling tools in this line now.

                I wanted to like this, but no. I cannot get my curls to stay at all. My Chi straightener does a much MUCH better job. I almost want to pay someone to take this curling iron away from me. I have tried to make it work and nothing helps. Such a waste of money.

                    Received this curling iron as a gift for my birthday and loved it. The curls come out nice and it's easy to use. However, after a week or so the on/off switch stopped lighting up. It didn't bother me because the iron was still heating up. But now about a month later, the light has come back on and the switch does not work. It still heats up, but I'm concerned about it not working properly, because it never shuts off. When it's plugged in it's on.

                    i have had it for only 8 months. I worked wonders until the end of the curling iron end fell off.

                        Does the difference in finishes affect the hair differently? Is one finish better then the other? (Vs the 24k gold)

                          The Rainbow Gold Curling Iron is also plated in 24K gold, so it provides the same results as the original Gold Curling Iron!
