      I bought this for my sister since she wanted a wider wand for her very long hair. She Loves it and it makes perfect loose curls just like she wanted!

        Gets very hot. Easy to use. Two sizes. I would have preferred a full glove instead of the 3 finger one they provided.

                        Big problem with this product: The black silicone tabs along the barrel placed there to keep the hair from slipping, causes your hair to snag when being released. I don't have a problem using wands and know how to keep my hair on them but this quick fix to keep the hair on leaves hair frizzy. When sliding hair off, you are trying to fix the curl because it is going everywhere. Not worth it. Had to go with a wand of a smaller size because no other brand makes wands in that size. Just a little tip ladies, when using a wand, after the hair is wrapped around it, just hold it at a slight angle. You get the silkiness of the smooth barrel without the snag. My recommendation is to skip it.

                        Great product, great price; hate the black "bumpers" on the barrel though, they sometimes create kinks in my hair and I'll have to re-do those curls. I wish they made it without those, my smaller curler doesn't have them (same brand)

                              I only used this curling wand twice, once with each barrel. It worked great. It heated up quick and you only have to hold each section of hair for about 15 sec. The curls even lasted into the next day. The rubber strips on the barrel worked great as well, the hair stayed in place on the wand and did not slip to the end at all like with most tapered wands. I would definitely recommend this to someone who likes tapered wands. I still gave it 5 stars even though I learned that I don't like the look and shape of the curls tapered wands create, which is no fault of the wand itself. I still just really prefer the look and shape a traditional curling wand creates. I returned this curling iron only for that reason, otherwise I would have gladly kept it.

                                What type of curl will it make? I have hair down to my back, with a tiny bit of grown out layers, so it looks shorter if I bring my hair to the front. How long will it take to do my entire head? If I part my hair down the middle and curl my hair away from my face will it look like the style everyone is going for now a days?

                                  The Conair You Big Waves will create soft/loose waves, as it has a pretty large barrel size. The bonus attachment barrel will give your hair loose curls, since it is a bit smaller than the other barrel. Depending on the thickness of your hair, it should take about 15-20 minutes to do your whole head of hair. You can definitely curl your hair away from your face to create voluminous curls.

                                Will this work abroad in Europe with a plug adapter? The Conair website says everything will work abroad with just a plug adapter, but I've seen other reviews say it doesn't work on the same voltage. I love it and want to bring it with me!

                                  You do not need a voltage converter to use your curling iron abroad. However, you may need an adapter to make sure your curling iron plug fits in the foreign wall outlet. These adapters may be purchased at airports, luggage and travel stores. Many hotels are providing adapters to guests upon request (check with the concierge at your hotel).

                                  Low 285ºF - Delicate, thin, easy-to-curl hair
                                  Medium 310ºF - Average-to-thick or treated hair
                                  Med-High 330ºF - Thick or wavy hair
                                  High/Max 360ºF–400ºF - Hard-to-curl hair
