        I would give 0 stars if that was an option. The curler never heated up... ever! I plugged it in right out of the box and nothing. I used different plugs... and nothing. Very disappointed as I was really excited for this purchase. Will be returning.

          I love this curling iron. I've purchased several curling irons recently and wasn't satisfied until I got this one. It gets really hot really fast and the curls come out perfect and last all day. I didn't even realize when I bought it how the handle swivels so that you don't have to turn your wrist. It's fantastic!

          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!

            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!

                    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!

                    • Q:

                      I have a very layered bob that falls about an inch above my shoulders. I always have to use several products and then dry it with a diffuser. I would like to use a curling iron to add in curls that have fallen. I've only been able find a 1 inch, but when I use one I end up straightening a piece of hair. Could you suggest a size that might work best for me please?
                      Thank you

                        A smaller barrel size such as the 1/2", 5/8", or 3/4" might work better for your shorter-length hair.

                        A:

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

                        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.

                        Any would be suitable for long, thick hair.
