      Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Curling Iron:

      I have been looking for a curling iron like this for a long time. I actually have taken back three other irons to Ulta , this is is my fourth one and I absolutely love it. I can do smaller sections and have a beach waves look and bigger sections for a looser curls. It doesn't feel damage in my hair and my hair feels smooth. First-time reviewer. So happy I spent the money and bought this. Almost by the $199.00 curling iron but found this which was very similar and I couldn't be happier!

      Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Curling Iron:

      The length of the barrel is a plus, however i found that even though with my long hair i wasn't using the full length of the barrel. The curls came out nice and smooth except that the ends always ended up getting really dry.

      All in all the product can curl but its not a curling iron I would spend this much money on when getting only the same result for half the price on a lower end model of HOT TOOLS. This item did go back to the store.

      Pro's it does heat up fast and it can curl the most thickest hair, but it doesn't stand out above and beyond there other products.

      I'd pass this up and grab one half the price or less.

        I have always been a big fan of Hot Tools so when I came across their higher end line called NexGen,I simply couldn't resist! It did not disappoint! It gives my frizzy/coarse hair great results in a short amount of time because of the extended barrel...I absolutely love this product and would recommend to anyone who is looking for professional results at home:)

          I NEEDED TO REPLACE MY OTHER HOT TOOL CURLING IRON AND DECIDED TO UPGRADE INTO THIS MODEL. I LIKE THE LONG BARREL AND IT SEEMS TO WORK GREAT. JUST STARTED USING IT AND VERY PLEASED. MY HAIR IS CURLY AND FRIZZY BUT THE IRON LEAVES IT SMOOTH AND SHINY. I WOULD BUY IT AGAIN...

              Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Curling Iron:

              I love how the long barrel can easily allow me to curl my hair fast and efficiently. I could curl my hair in one round, therefore I feel it's a little less damaging. I would recommend this if you have long, thick hair to the waist like me. The barrel clip, however does get hot. It comes with an oil, that is great and makes your hair soft and shiny.

              I bought this on sale, on top of a 20 percent off coupon, so the price wasn't too bad.

                Just love the extra length. Makes curling long hair easier & quicker. Shamelessly expensive but that extra length is a feature I haven't seen on personal curling irons.

                  Comments about Hot Tools NexGen Curling Iron:

                  I have found the regular hot tools curling iron to make nicer curls and hold them longer. This iron doesnt always clamp onto thin hair making it difficult to keep hair on the iron. The thumb lever that lifts the clamp gets very hot if you have a lot of hair to curl and the iron is on for awhile. The curls do not finger curl well after they have cooled. I do have to say the curls come out shiny and my hair does not feel damaged after using it. I am not convinced the extra cost is worth it.

                    what does the curling iron come with. In the store it comes with a hair serum in the box. If I order it and have it delivered to me does it come with the serum?
