      I have long thick hair and always afraid that using a smaller tool will take forever, first time using this my hair was completely done in 10 minutes and curls lasted for hours into the night

      perfect

      By Olivia

      from Boise Idaho

      Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

      This is for the 1 1/2 inch tapered iron. This is perfect for what I needed. I have very long hair and this iron makes tapered curls effortlessly and quickly. Stays hot so far. Try to keep the tapered end angled down when curling each strand... Found it looks better if you do it that way

        At first I wasn't quite sure exactly how to use the curling wand. I did watch a YouTube video which helped an extreme amount. After that I tried it and it looked fantastic! Nice, loose beachy waves!

                Comments about Hot Tools NanoCeramic Tapered Iron:

                I purchased this iron along with a bigger iron of the same brand. They both are no longer working. The first iron stopped working less than six uses. This iron, which I loved when it worked, stopped working less than ten months after I purchased it. It will initially heat up than after the first two curls it goes cold again. The iron is on and the temperature is at its highest setting. Nothing. Very disappointed in the Hot Tools brand.

                  I didnt curl my hair in years but after getting a bunch chopped off I really wanted to do beach wave curls. I have super straight hair that's hard to curl so far this is working for me. I was nervous not having a clap but it comes with a glove, I have burnt my ear and neck once or twice but I would probably do that with a clap too. No clamp crease though!

                  • Q:

                    What is considered to be the best curling iron for your hair between gold, titanium, and nano ceramic?

                      A:

                      The difference is the material of each -

                      CeramicTI Tourmaline (purple) - Ceramic Tourmaline surface with titanium additive emits gentle far-infrared heat and negative ions to increase hydration and shine while reducing frizz.

                      24K gold plated (gold) - Even heat distribution create long-lasting curls and waves leaving hair looking smooth and glossy.

                      NanoCeramic (black & white) - NanoCeramic barrel creates an ultra smooth surface for frizz-free styles.

                  • Q:

                    What's the length the curling part of this wand? The nano may suggest it's a mini curling iron or Nano may just be part of the name.
