      I have very thick long hair that never holds a curl. This wand is hot enough to deal with my hair and my boyfriend goes gaga over my Hollywood curls. My hair is still curly the day after! Heats up fast too! In love.

          My hair normally doesn't curl or if it does it doesn't hold, until I tried this wand! The girl in the store showed me how to use it and it was so easy and it lasted 2 days!

              This iron is great on straight hair. It is usually hard to get my hair to hold a curl but this iron does the trick! So happy with this purchase.

                I wanted more curls than my curling iron gave me but this wand was a bit small for my thick hair to make bigger waves. Ended up returning the curler. I can use my 1 1/4 curling iron as a wand!

                  As a first time user for the flipperless iron, it took a little bit of time getting used to this. I have only used it on my daughter's hair- which is long, straight and blond. It worked really well and the curls were loose and beautiful. I still have yet to try on mine, but I am sure I will like the outcome, my hair is shoulder length so I don't want tight curls. I do think what I paid was okay, I always like to choose the products that cost a bit more for the quality. The barrel is easy to clean as heat protector can get a bit sticky when it gets on it. Like the weight and the temp control so I can make sure it is right for my hair or my daughters. It heats up quickly which is a plus as our mornings are pretty hectic.

                    Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

                    For years I have longed for curls that last! I have color treated straight hair that just could not seem to hold any curl longer than an hour. I tried hot rollers, curling irons, air brushes .. just about everything. I finally decided to try a curling wand. After speaking with a consultant at my local Ulta store, I took the plunge and purchased the 1 1/4 inch tapered iron by Hot Tools. I was pleasantly surprised that it worked as well as she said! I have always used drugstore products but this proves a little extra money goes a long way. The iron itself was a bit weird to use at first but once you figure out the technique it goes super fast. I never curl on freshly washed hair, use a bit of texturing wax and heat activated texture spray before curling and a spritz of hairspray after curling. The curls add bounce and volume .. something I've been trying to accomplish for years!
