              I have been needing a new flat iron for years and finally got around to purchasing a new one. I hate CHI's.. they tug and pull out my hair. What I wanted was a Paul mitchell flat iron but didn't want to shell out close to $200. Read the reviews on this one and purchased it. Let me tell you best decision. Not only does it heat up in under 10 seconds I absolutely love the feel of this. It's light and thin. I don't find the plates don't open enough because my previous one was the exact same way. I don't have a problem with the lock as a matter of fact I had a hard time getting the button to lock it.. it was a tight fit. I was able to straighten my hair in 10 min. Super fast and my hair is super soft. No tugging and pulling from the plates it comes with a 2 year warranty if anything happens to it which I love. Would totally repurchase again.

                    I purchased sexy hair flat iron because of the great reviews I read, once I bought and used it I was so unhappy the grips are so uncomfortable to hold on to even for a short time it really hurts fingers, it also has an automatic 30 min shutoff I totally disliked that I need more than 30 min to do my hair. I don't recommend at all! I recommend babyliss flat irons there the best I love it and it has a 4 year warranty!

                      If it opened more, it would be much easier to use. I like the different temperature settings and auto shutoff. Also comes with a handy travel case.

                      Comments about Sexy Hair Flat Iron:

                      When my beloved Rusk straightener died (it was over 5 years old), I was on a desperate hunt to find another straightener with all the things I loved about my Rusk. After taking a chance on Sexy Hair's straightener and using it for a month, I think it's time I spread the good word!

                      One of the key items was having an adjustable temperature. Sexy Hair's not only has that, but a digital readout, which makes me feel better that I'm putting at the temp I want, and can't easily change it without hitting a button. Win here!

                      Also, you can set a timer from 30 minutes and up for when it will automatically shut off. I almost always unplug mine after I finish using, but it's great to know that if I'm running late/in a rush and forget, I don't have to worry about burning the house down!

                      Bonus, the display changes colors to let you know what is going on. Blue for off, red for charging, and green for ready.

                      My hair is currently in an angled bob with the back being cut super short. This straightener is thinner than normal which makes straightening my shorter parts a breeze! My fingers definitely appreciate this. Along with this, the longer plates help cut the time it takes to straighten everything out. And the very ends go a little farther than the plates, but don't get hot.

                      But, the major win for me was the locking mechanism which I BARELY find on any other straightener!! I love the lock because I feel better doing my makeup while it's heating up or when I leave it out to cool knowing that I can lock it and really reduce the chance of the plates touching anything on accident. I know another reviewer mentioned the lock being a problem, but in the month I've been using it (min. 5x a week), I have yet to have a problem.

                      The only down side really has nothing to do with the straightener, but it was almost impossible for me to find in-store. Before I spent close to $100 on it, I want to at least see it in person. I ultimately ended up buying it from Ulta.com and took a risk figuring I could always return it. It was so worth it! Highly recommended!!

                          Comments about Sexy Hair Flat Iron:

                          I really wanted to love this iron because everyone gave it such great reviews but I quickly learned that was not going to happen. Out of the box I was excited to see how how much longer the plates were compared to most flat irons, this is a plus. I also noticed that it is really light which is a good thing but at the same time does make it feel kind of flimsy. I fired it up and went to work and VERY quickly became super fustrated. First off, no one here mentioned that this particular flat iron does not open up nearly as wide as a normal iron which means you can only use thin sections of hair (not a huge issue for me because I do not have thick hair but anyone that does, beware). The second and more serious issue I experienced is that this iron comes with a lock that is intended to be used when you travel with the iron so that the plates stay closed. The switch that engages this function kept sliding and the plates would lock while I was trying to straighten. I tried everything I could to make this stop but I came to the conclusion that it is a poor design and in the end I returned the iron. I will also add that this iron made my hair not nearly as smooth as the results I normally get with my trusty old Chi iron. I won't blame this on the iron since everyones hair texture is different and it could be that this particular plate just does not mesh with my hair.

                          So, anyone considering this iron may want to actually take it out of the box in the store to determine if the travel lock and the narrow opening between plates is going to be an issue for them.

                          This flat iron is amazing! First of all, it has an automatic shut down if I forget to turn it off! Curling hair is much easier because of the thin plates and there is even a place at the tip of the iron to place your fingers so you don't get burned!

                              This flatter is longer than all of the others so you can get the job done quicker and more efficiently. I love it because it smooths and flattens the hair when you want it to be, or can create beautiful soft, bouncy curls when you want them. I love that you can adjust the heat setting and really love that there is a lock button so you can travel with it easier. Thank You Sexy Hair!

                                      Comments about Sexy Hair Flat Iron:

                                      Being that this iron is THIN means that I can get close to the scalp on any hair-type with even heat penetration. Because this iron uses infra red heat, it means that the hair heats from the inside out, so you get better results. I love that it has a digital read out and I always know what the exact temperature of my iron is. Plus, with an automatic shut-off feature I never have to worry about shutting off my iron again! Because I love to also curl my hair with my flat iron, I really like that this iron has a swivel cord, meaning it wont get wrapped up and tangled over time. This iron is also more of a "one pass iron" because of the floating plates. For those of you who are asking "What are floating plates?!" This is when the hot plates on the iron toggle back and forth to accommodate any bend or curl in the hair. Therefor, this eliminates the need to pass over the hair multiple times to get it flat/straight (which creates more heat damage). Finally, I also love that on/off and +/- control buttons on the iron are on the side so I don't accidently turn them on and off while using the iron. Great product!

                                          A:

                                          The plates on the iron should be completely touching. Towards the back of the iron there is a locking mechanism with an arrow. Make sure your locking mechanism is fully released to allow full opening and closing of the iron.

                                          Yes, we recommend using a higher heat setting for most effective results on coarse/thick hair.
