    Comments about Chi ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

    This product took a little getting used to but once I figured it out, it was great! I have long, thick hair and it really was helpful, especially in the back of my hair. It takes less time than a regular curling iron and the curls last for several days.

      Easy to us product. You might not need it if your experienced at curling hair but it does save time. It's exactly the same iron as the Beachwaver S1. Same barrel size and length, 1inch and 5.5 respectively. The clap is slightly larger

        Most curlers cannot get my hair to curl and if they do, the curls are out in 30 min but they actually stay in with this product. And it's super easy to use so I can even do it myself which I couldn't before. I normally wouldn't spend over 100 on one curler but this was more than worth it.

              I am in love with this curling iron! My husby bought me the conair curl secret & it was big, heavy, bulky & awkward. Now as for the chi arc it's amazing. I curl my hair in half the time of a traditional curling iron. It does not give my wrist fatigue. It's lightweight and really nice to look at. It's heats up in 40 seconds. Give it a try you'll fall in love like I did.

                    I'm in love with this product! I have thin long layered hair. I use to use a curling wand on my hair every morning. When I went to Ulta, I was actually going to buy the Beachwaver. The sales associate said the Chi is the exact same thing and is half the price (I bought this curler when it was on sale). I have never been happier! I've used this product everyday for the last month and a half. This product cuts the time it takes for me to get ready in half! It curls my whole head in -0 minutes. It gives tight curls that I brush out with my fingers after the hair has cooled and it turns into amazing beachy waves that last all day and night. I've never been happier with a purchase.

                    Comments about Chi ARC Automatic Rotating Curler:

                    I was really skeptical about all the hype surrounding these "automatic" curling irons. The one that pulls your hair into a chamber just seemed scary to me. A friend bought a similar one to this CHI curling iron and said she loved it. I decided to bite the bullet and try it out but when I went to ULTA that particular one (can't remember the brand was sold out). The salesperson recommended this one and said it's the one they use in their salon too. It also happened to be $50 cheaper than the one I had originally come in to purchase so that was another plus. With the 20% off coupon it was a relatively fair price and when I got it home to try I decided I would have gladly paid much more! It is so easy to use and gives you a perfect curl every time. You don't have to worry about the clip at the end that would give you a "wing tip" at the end of your curls on a normal iron since this one has such a short clip. It has buttons that allow you to curl to the right or left and you can set the temperature which is also nice. I've spent years trying to become an expert at curling my own hair and have paid many stylists many hundreds of dollars because I have failed. This curling iron is exactly what I needed, I can't believe I didn't purchase it sooner!!

                        This product is not dual voltage. It operates at standard voltage 110-120V. It will require a converter and plug adapter to use internationally.
