      Product is difficult to use and hair gets caught in tool easily thus pulling on your hair. Took it back.

        I love this curling iron! Sure, there was a bit of a learning curve but when I got the hang of it it cut my curling time down to less than ten minutes! I have very long, thick hair. You have to use smaller sections of hair due to the fact that the barrel doesn't open but I didn't mind it that much since it curls hair so fast. I love the effortless curls it gives my hair.

            My long, straight, fine hair actually holds a curl all day with this tool--not true with traditional curling irons. The best thing, though, is I can do my whole head in 10 minutes. It used to take me at least 30 to curl all my hair. So easy to use with a fairly simple learning curve.

              Comments about Hot Tools Insta-Curl EZ Styler:

              Bought this to use on my daughter's hair as her's is incredibly thick & long! Takes over an hour to curl her hair using a curling iron & for an active 8 year old that's a very long time to sit still just for hair. It literally has cut curling time down to 30 min's max!!! We can now curl her hair before school some days which is awesome! The curls can be loose, tight, ringlet or waves! Possibilities are endless. The only downside I've seen is it can pull hairs out if not loosened for release but otherwise the 3 different heat settings is great so that I can use it just as easily on myself. LOVE IT!!!

                I have very fine, straight hair and have been looking for a good product to truly curl my hair. My straightener works from time to time but sometimes it doesn't take or hold the curl and curling irons don't seem to do much either. I can't grasp the concept of a wand. This product is amazing! It curls my hair easily, quickly, and effectively! It only allows a thin piece of hair in the plates, but the longer I held the hair in the tighter the curl so I believe I have some control on that. I highly recommend this product!

                    This makes curling your hair so easy. It reduces the time in half from a normal curling iron. I have very long hair and it still is quick. It does have a bit of a learning curve. One issue I have is if the piece of hair you are curling is not perfectly smooth it can pull can cause hair tearing.

                    At first I was terrified because I didn't know how to use it and I thought I was going to burn my hair off. But I got the hang of it quickly. My hair usually doesn't hold curl at all but my curls lasted all day and still had some wave the next day! So glad I bought this :)

                      Im trying to grow my hair out and its very fine. Cant use hot rollers and other irons that claim to make nice long curls lie or the iron burns my fingers.

                      Easy to use and it curls your hair in a faster time than a traditional curling iron. I have long hair and the curl holds throughout the day. I would highly recommend.

                      • Q:

                        y daughter uses a flat iron hair straighter but wants to add curl. Her hair is more than shoulder length and she is not very good with a regular curling wand, would this be as easy to handle as a flat straighter? She is a college student and space is limited, will this accomplish both jobs for her easily? Thank you

                          This tool is very easy to use and is excellent for those who are novices at using traditional curling irons. We recommend watching the video playlist of techniques displayed below the product description. It is ideal for creating curls and waves, but we suggest using a separate tool for straightening hair.

                      • Q:

                        what size is the barrel? how does this styler work? Is it a curling iron. If so--where is the clip ? How hot is the barrel? How many heat settings are there? I am looking for a 3/8 in. hot curling brush --or-- smaller for very short, thin, stubborn hair.Windemere had a 3/8 hot curling brush years ago and that is the only thing that worked on my hair. It is so old and all but one row of the teeth are missing but is the only thing that works on my hair. It's at the end of it's life. can you help me find a SMALL hot curling brush [less than a 1/2 inch barrel. Thank you so much!!! Shirley

                          The barrel size of the Hot Tools Insta-Curl EZ Styler is 1". It is a clip-less curling iron. Instead of clipping, the section of hair is placed between the two plates, and you rotate the iron to curl your hair.

                          The EZ Curl might not be the best option for very short hair, but Hot Tools no longer makes a 3/8" brush iron. The smallest available is Hot Tools 3/4" Gold Brush Iron (Item #: 6501713):
