        I used this curling iron to create soft curls since my hair has gotten long and I wanted to try a new look. This was perfect for that! The temperature reaches over 400 degrees so it made styling quick and easy.

                Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

                Use the curling iron after each shampoo. Once I got used to the temperature that I needed for my hair, and how to section off the back of my head to get all of my hair curled, it works great! Curls last for several days. Love the ability to adjust the iron temperature.

                      Comments about Hot Tools Gold Curling Iron:

                      I got this to replace a curling iron that was my mom's that I had used for years—I finally got tired of the slow heat-up and low temperature of the decades-old device and was ready to upgrade to something from this century.

                      This is a great, high-quality iron that heats up fast and feels durable in your hand—not like some of the lower-end brands that you can tell will last about 1 year if you're lucky. Hair slides smoothly through the iron and the high heat gives me curls that stay in place all day.

                      The only draw-back, and the reason I gave it 4 out of 5, is that there is no automatic shut-off feature. It's very easy for me to run out the door and come back at the end of the day to a still-hot iron, which is a bit disconcerting. Other than that, I highly recommend this product, and I plan to buy a couple more in other sizes to complete my collection!

                      • Q:

                        I have very hard to curl hair, I get a curl out of my curling iron but automatically the curl will start to fall and by the time I'm done with my whole head the curls are very loose and flat. With that being said, will the hot tools curling iron keep the curl? Even with my very fine hair?

                          This tool is designed with a 24K gold-plated barrel to heat quickly and evenly for professional results. It works on all hair types and textures, including very fine hair. To extend the life of your curls, we recommend setting your style with a finishing hair spray with medium to firm hold.

                          This product is not dual voltage, so it would require a converter as well as an adapter for use in international outlets.
