    This is a wonderful curling tool. My hair is thick and long, and it does the job so perfect that I even do my sisters, with medium length and thick, hairs it does it even better! Always put heat protection and the hairs stay like wonder! Curls can be wavy to super curly. Best product ever!

          Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

          I am not normally the type of person to buy expensive beauty products, drug store brands have always worked fine for me. I needed a new curling iron because my drug store one broke and WOW! What a difference a good iron makes. I like the adjustable heat, I don't feel like I'm frying my hair. My hair is soft and fine, but this clamps tight enough to hold it- in fact it clamps almost too tight! I clamp my hair in the middle and pull it through and it took some adjusting with this iron to figure out how to do that. I didn't think the swivel cord was a feature to worry about but it is actually awesome. The rainbow barrel is fun touch. I highly recommend this iron!

            Love the way this iron stays hot between curls. The cord is a great length, longer than previous irons I've had.

            Horrible Terrible Cord

            Comments about Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Curling Iron:

            Within two or three uses after I bought this curling iron the cord got tangled, at first I thought no big deal but it has become an absolute nightmare to use this product because of the cord. I've tried everything to untangle it and it tangles back up almost immediately. Also, the on/off button broke shortly after buying it...so I have to plug/unplug it, which isn't a big deal but now after reading some other reviews I see I'm not the only one with this problem. The curling iron curls my hair nice and the curls last, so I'd enjoy this product if it wasn't for that dreadful cord. I never write reviews but this cord gets on my ever living last nerve, I had to share.

                  Got this baby on sale. It curls which is exactly what i needed. I applied this thermal spray by redken on my hair and neither my hair or apparatus burned or smoked. So its a keeper.

                    Good price, heats up super fast, hair moves smoothly around the barrel. My only complaint is that my curls did not last as long as I had hoped based on other reviewers comments, but I did first try it on freshly washed hair. Hopefully with clips, hair spray, and second day hair, my curls will last longer!

                          This curling iron is so awesome. I works very well and is worth the price. The only problem is that it heats up hotter than I would like it, even at the lowest setting. But otherwise it is great.

                            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!
