      Comments about Chi ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

      I have long hair past the middle of my back. It's color-treated and has an awkward natural wave/curl (inconsistent). I normally use a 2" barrel so I was hesitant to go to the 1", but I absolutely love it. I use Wen and let my hair air-dry, so when I go to curl it, this iron makes it smooth and shiny. The temperature control is great - I need more heat to make the curl last. The barrel is pretty long, I have no issue getting all of my hair in contact with heat. I get more compliments on my hair with this. Takes me about 20 minutes to do my whole head. I wanted the rotating because I'm starting to get carpal tunnel and wrist issues, so this helps tremendously. Day 2 loosens up to the beachy waves. LOVE it. Worth every penny.

          It takes a little getting use to it. I wish that the barrel was a little smaller so the curls would be tighter. It works real good for smooth curls.

            This is AMAZING. I was never able to curl my hair before but now I can!!! This is so easy to use, I absolutely LOVE styling my hair now, I swear I was able to fully curl all of my hair the first time I used it, I am not exaggerating. I literally have never been able to use a curler, I always end up crimping the end with the clamp, burning my hair, pulling it out--it was horrible. this is SO EASY it curls your hair for you, you just use the short clamp for the end, and then press the arrow and it curls it up for you!!
            I wish I had this sooner, I am so so happy I took a leap of faith and tried this out after so many failed attempts before.

            if you want a fast, easy way to curl your hair BEAUTIFULLY then try this!!
            I have fine blond hair that is so hard to style, it always seems to want to stay straight or mildly wavy. No matter how much hairspray I used to put, curlers--nothing worked to curl or give volume to my hair. THIS WORKED

                I was so hesitant to purchase this due to the price, but I am so glad that I did! I am not good at curling my own hair and have tried the clipless type, rollers, regular curling irons- but it always takes me forever and never looks the way I want it to. This was so easy to use on the first try! I have long hair, and I curled it all in less than 15 minutes. My hair typically does not hold a curl for very long- but somehow my curls/waves stay all day after using this. I highly recommend this if you are looking for a quick and easy way to get beautiful , flowing curls!

                      I normally curl my hair from the top down. This requires you to curl from the bottom up. Hairs get loose while it spins. I will probably end up using it like a wand without the clip or the spin mechanism.

                              I love this curling iron! I went in looking for a thicker wand, already having one of a smaller size, and found this great product. I personally have a hard time using a wand, being that I have long hair, its difficult to keep the hair set without it falling out or burning my fingers some how. But now with the CHI ARC, the process is so much easier and the time spent doing my hair is less. The small clamp at the bottom of the barrel is great. It really helps keep my hair in place, and most importantly protects the ends. Rotates great, and heats up quickly. I don't have to keep my hair wrapped for longer than 10 seconds, for a beautiful curl to come out.

                                  This curling iron is SO wonderful. It gives natural looking curls. It took me 10 minutes to curl all my hair! It was amazing! Price is high but totally worth every penny. (or wait till it goes on sale and use a coupon) I am so glad I purchased. Get one.... you won't be disappointed!
