    awesome

    Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Professional Marcel Iron:

    I've always used a flat iron to make curls so I decided to purchase my first actual curling iron. I got the 1 1/4 inch and it makes nice soft curls. I was afraid I wouldn't get the hang of using it seeing that the marcel does not have a spring handle but it wasn't too difficult! I still need practice but overall it is a nice curling iron and also it was shipped very quickly within 3 days after I made the purchase!

      Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Professional Marcel Iron:

      I was worried i wouldn't be able to get the hang of this iron, but it was pretty easy to catch on. I have very fine hair that never holds a curl. After a few minutes my hair just looks like a mess instead of having actual curls. I decided to try this iron because my hair stylist uses one and my hair seems to take to the curl a bit better. I wish i would have went with a smaller barrel, but the curl does hold better than the hot rollers i would typically use. The iron is great quality and i would defiantly recommend to friends!

          After watching the stylist do my hair with a Marcel Wand I decided I wanted one so I could get that great style at home. I bought mine and practiced on my daughter after watching the tutorials online. I found it very easy to learn how to use and to use in general. My hair looks better and my curls hold great. I love this, because my daughter's hair is very thick and I can even give her great curls. I won't any other kind of curling again.

            First off, if your not used to using a Marcel iron this may be difficult for you to use but there's plenty tutorials to learn. The swivel type handle makes curling so easy. Sometimes I hold the iron shut Nd wrap my hair around it for lose beach waves! Also it allows you to choose the temperature you want! This iron is amazing and a must have!

              Comments about Hot Tools Online Only Professional Marcel Iron:

              There is a reason that this is the iron commonly used by the pros! Some people find it a touch tricky to master the technique needed to use this style of curling iron but once you get it down it really is much faster and easier than traditional curling irons. I have carpal tunnel and RA and this iron is MUCH easier on my wrists and hands than other tools. This iron also has a lovely thermostat that goes from 280-430, which is a good range to accommodate both delicate/damaged and thick or heat-resistant hair. It also has an extra long swivel cord. 10/10 would buy again!

                I have thick and course hair when I use the wand my curls come out great but then by 30mins or so passing my the curls end up wavy to flat. Meaning the curls do not hold. Is this iron able to hold curls in my thick and course hair longer?

                  Marcel irons have a locking mechanism to hold the hair around the barrel. They are frequently used by professional stylists in salon environments.

              • Q:

                I would like to purchase this as a gift for my sister. She has shoulder length, thick, straight hair that doesn't hold the curl with the larger barrel curling irons. I am not sure of the size barrel she has now, but it is meant for loose, beachy waves. What size barrel would you recommend for her hair type that will also hold a curl?

                  The 1" offers the most versatile styling, so that is what we would suggest. We recommend using a finishing spray with medium to firm hold to help hold her curls. We hope this helps!

                  The Marcel Iron works best on hair that is shoulder length or longer, though it can certainly be used on shorter hair.

                I have medium length hair and I can't decide whether to buy a 1 or 1 1/4 inch iron. I would want curly and wavy hair. Also which one would be good if I wanted to grow my hair a little longer?

                  Marcel irons have a locking mechanism to hold the hair around the barrel. They are frequently used by professional stylists in salon environments. Marcel irons are not ideal for beginners. Instead, try a traditional curling iron, such as the Gold Curling Iron:

                  A:

                  The only difference is the heating surface material (gold vs. ceramic tourmaline). If you have dry, damaged, or over-processed hair, we recommend choosing the Ceramic TI Tourmaline Marcel Iron, since it uses ionic technology to infuse hair with moisture and shine.
