    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!

      Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

      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!

        The description calls this "flipperless" ... I miss the flipper. Nothing wrong with the iron. It did what it advertised. But took too long and not worth the effort to get used to it.

          Thankfully it came with a glove to protect your hand, or I would have burned my fingers multiple times! Once I figured out how to hold the culing iron and position my arms I got the desired look. I will be returning it to get a standard curling iron.

                  This wand is perfect for my 3 girls. They have mid to long thick hair and they love playing around with it. It gives them either a nice tight curl or a beachy wave.

                  I bought the product for my daughter and it worked great for a year. After that it quit working. When I called to get a replacement I was two days over the 1 yr warranty and I couldn't get another one. My daughter's friend had the exact same one and hers quit working after she had only had it for a year. When I buy a product I expect it to last a while.

                        I was in need of a new curling iron and my friend had told me to get a wand. I was so nervous to try it because I was unsure how long it would take me to fix my hair or how difficult it would be. I finally decided I was going to try it and I bought this wand. I could NOT be happier. LOVE IT!! It is so easy and quick to do. The best part is it creates a different kind of curl than a normal curling iron. Plus, the curl last for more than a couple of days. Anytime I curl my hair with the wand, I always receive complements on it.
