    Out of ALL the curling irons I have tried! and believe me there has been many! THIS ONE NEVER LET'S ME DOWN! This is the best curling iron EVA! If you want to save yourself a headache trying to find the right curling iron that gives you curl, heats up fast and does its job, stick with this one !!! :) REALLY! " I just wish that Conair would make this same EXACT style in a ceramic, that would be the ultimate ! :) "

        Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

        I've had this Curling iron before but I burnt it out too quickly because I kept using the Turbo heat setting. I use this Curling iron to make nice beachy waves instead of a Curling wand because I feel like those are complicated and don't have everything I want in a Curling tool. Heats up very quickly and works well even on lower temperatures!

            Appreciate the 1/2 inch which is hard to find. It lasts long and heats consistently. Small, easy to travel with.

              This curling iron works as well as more expensive models so why spend the extra $$$. It has adjustable heat settings (I use the highest b/c my hair is hard to curl) and it heats up really fast. I just wind the hair around the barrel (not using the clip) wait 30 seconds, and VIOLA! the perfect wave. I have the 1 1/4 inch model and it creates pretty beachy loose waves in my long hair. No need to spend a fortune. Just use a heat protection spray and you're good to go. I highly recommend this product.

                    bought as a last minute purchase. My daughter wanted loose curls occasionally. I love the curler. It has great settings, and curls the hair w/o crimping the ends, and it heats up really fast. I have been a hair tool snob in the past, and I am very impressed with how well the lower priced tool performs

                      I was surpised that this iron did not work so great on my hair because I have used many of this brands other curling irons and they leave me with lobg last curls. This one would make my curls drop in minutes and within an hour it was flat.

                          Comments about Conair Instant Heat Styling Iron:

                          I have used this Conair curling iron for many, many years. When I first bought it way back when, I was a bit more strapped for funds than I am today. Now that I have the ability to purchase some of those fancy higher end models (which I'm not sure even work any better!), I really don't want to! This has been a very reliable, fast and dependable product! I have this iron in multiple sizes (depending on the style of my hair) and have found it to be a great tried and true iron! I have only had to replace it once and that was due to it just reaching the end of it's life after daily use and many years of hair spray buildup that was needed to achieve the look I was after!

                          I would highly recommend this iron. I will be purchasing another just for travel purposes since it gets hot in approximately 30-45 seconds. I just can't beat that!

                              This curling iron has dual voltage. It will automatically adjust to the proper voltage. Use an adapter plug with correct configuration, prior to use in outlet.
