      I dont care for the glove. I have to keep removing it while portioning my hair. The iron itself is great! Easy to use after a couple trial runs. Heats well & makes smooth curls

      I have naturally wavy hair that gets super frizzy & untamed when air dried. I bought this to give me a little pep in my step with some super cute beachy waves or straight up sexy curls. My only complaint would be that the wand seems short but that's not going to make me return it " )

        This is my first tapered curling iron. I have easy to curl, semi-wavy hair. So I do not need to use it on a hotter setting. Unless you want tighter curls, then I suggest you use it on a higher setting. It's taking a little time to get used to the glove, but it's very effective.

            I've never been good at curling my hair with your typical curling irons so when I got a hold of the wand I was super excited. This wand was very easy to use and makes your hair hold a curl very well. Only thing that didn't work for me was that because it is tapered it made more of a prom like curl. I wanted a bigger uniform curl, so I returned it for the one inch (not tapered) wand. They both work great!

                    These are the curls I have always wanted! I absolutely love this wand. It heats up fast and I can get my hair done fairly quick, considering how thick it is. My hair is past my shoulders and extremely thick, the tapered barrel is perfect for it. The curls hold without hair spray for two to three days. It's amazing!

                      I liked this curling iron because it really does curl, however, when I wrap my hair around the barrel, I can't get the ends of my hair to stay on the iron so they become uncurled and kind of spiky. I think the problem is because my hair is textured at the ends, the pieces are uneven and won't stay together when wrapping the iron. Instead, I exchanged this iron for a 1" standard barrel iron (ceramic-Hot Tools brand) and it's absolutely perfect for giving me that tousled wave look!

                        It's been really hard to find a curling iron that actually curls my hair for an extended period of time because it's so straight. This works!

                            I love love love this wand. It is amazing. It creates some really nice tight curls if you do it in smaller sections but you can also create some really nice waves if you style it in bigger sections. I personally like to style my hair in smaller sections. Then the curls hold longer and better. So much so that the next day I still have a nice style to it and can leave it like that. My hair usually doesn't like to hold curls for long. They usually always end up falling out but not with this product. I just curl it and then spray a little bit of strong hold hairspray and I'm good to go. I used to have to use hot rollers and let them set for 40 minutes and then take them out. I would also have to use a lot of strong hold hairspray and even then my curls would a lot of times fall out by the end of the day. So that's saying a lot.

                              Love this curling iron! My hair is a thick, somewhat wavy texture, and it doesn't hold a curl all that well. Clamp curling irons tend to straighten my hair. This curling iron gets hot enough that not only does my hair hold a curl, it stays curled into the next day! It's pretty easy to use (check out how-to videos online). It does get very hot, so be careful! A glove is included to help protect against burns.

                                Will this wand be ideal for the red carpet loose beach waves look, or should I look at regular iron with a 1-1/4in barrel?

                                  A:

                                  This tapered iron is the perfect size to use to create larger curls or waves. Wrap hair around the larger end to the middle of the barrel for loose waves.
