Hair slides down to tapered end of barrel

Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

When I curl my hair I point the tip of the curling iron down toward the floor. In this case the tapered end is pointing down and the thicker end is toward the root of my hair. When I would wrap my hair around the barrel it would all slip down to the tapered end even when I wrapped my hair around the barrel very tight so all of my hair would be in a bundle at the bottom of the curling iron instead of spread out over the barrel. So basically I was getting messed up 3/4 inch curls. I will exchange this for a non tapered clipless iron.

    I loved that this heated up to over 400. It also curls very nicely and I was able to curl it on Sunday and keep the hairstyle till Wednesday with very minimal touch ups!! This purchase was a major win!!

    Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

    I love that there is an actual on off switch. Glove that comes with wand is very heat resistant. This wand leaves beautiful curls that last 3-4 days (with proper care and use). If you just want to add a couple loose curls here and there the wand heats quick enough for on the go. My holy grail tool!

    Hot Tools Tapered Iron -3c curl

    Pros

    • Adds shine
    • Heats Up Quickly

    Cons

    • Curl Doesn't Hold
    • Glove Isn't That Ef

    Best Uses

      Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

      Hair glides nicely over the barrel, but the heat glove still gets hot, so you still need to be mindful when trying to form a close, tight, curl. The curl, onced formed, doesn't hold for long. I have natural 3c hair.I guess to each is on.

          Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

          I've had this for a few years and I don't use it too often because my hair is wavy and I'm often too lazy to straighten it before I curl it but when I do use it, it's not bad. I wish the wand was the same size all the way through and because of that it's not always reliable. I like that it heats up quickly and is on a scale of 1-10 because it simplifies the temperature. I don't like the stand at the bottom because either way it's a nuisance. If it's down, then it's in the way of my hand placement and if it's up, it's in the way of the hair being curled.

          In all, it's not a bad curler. It doesn't do anything wrong but the way it's made makes it hard for me (personally) to use.

              Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

              I used this curling wand to create loose waves in my hair, and I've never gotten more compliments on a hair style that I have done myself and not had done in a salon. The curls hold all day while I'm working, and if I'm feeling really lazy, I can even sleep on them and just barely touch them up the next morning.

                  Comments about Hot Tools Nano Tapered Iron:

                  I like this product a lot and use it in place of my straightener.
                  However, after using the wand, I quickly realized that the result I was hoping for relies in a curling wand (same brand even), that is the same size all the way around from top to bottom.
                  I'm not crazy about the tapered size.

                  I have natural wavy hair that needs minimal work to create those desired beach perfect waves. After a couple of sessions of practice (I have 2 left feet for hands), my hair was exactly as I wanted it.
