Most Helpful Positive Review Love the Curls
I saw this on an Ulta email with the video, I thought I'd give this a try. I was a Hot Roller Expert in my day, but the time came and I moved on. I have natural curly hair (more like wave to curls) and it can easily be brushed straight. I've been using a curling iron and while it's nice and I have curls, I've burned myself from time to time so now I wear the "Glove." It also takes a while and no matter how fast you think you can go, caution not to get burned is the utmost, so it's a bit slow process.
So my take on this Pro Spin. Much better than the brush ones that are out there (I tried), which does tangle a lot! That went back pronto!
The Pro Spin was cumbersome at first and went slowly. It stopped and beeped when the hair tangled , but it actually wasn't hardly tangled, so I appreciated the beep. There was only one time it was tangled more so and I unplugged and slowly released my hair, but I didn't lose any hair and no damage! I think because it's a ceramic slippery cylinder that it releases easily.
However, once I got the hang of this unit it went very fast and I never heard the beep.. beep.. beep.. beep again (4 beep tangle).
I like that it does also beep once when the curl is finished and the hair does come out of the unit quite easily. The picture I have my head turned so you can see the curl ringlets. I was waiting for them to cool and then I'll brush. Btw my hair is about 5-6 inches from my shoulder.
I did this without any kind of heat or curl product, I think they actually do damage the hair. I saw a demonstration once and you could see the burn. That's just a side note.
All in all don't give up, my arm wasn't tired like it gets from a curling iron, no fear of burning fingers or ears and goes pretty fast once you get the hang of it which took me about 6 curls. Then it was easy peasy!
Most Helpful Critical Review Great for fine hair - Frustrating for thick hair...
The idea behind this product is amazing! However, the functionality is lacking in ways... The "Tangle Mode" kicks in if you put even the most conservative sized section of hair. The consistent Start-and-stop nature of the process, due to the tangle mode, is frustrating and makes the process even more tedious.
The curls produced are beautiful and flowing! but if you want tight curls that would gradually loosen throughout the day for "all day curls"- this is not your product. Even with copious amounts of expensive "strong hold" hairspray (Applied sparingly before the curling process AND generously afterwards) The curls produced only lasted about 2 hours or so in the humidity leaving me with an unruly, brittle mess of a do. In theory, this is a wonderful product! and there are many great things about it! But, if you have long, heavy, THICK hair + you live in a hot, humid area - Stick with the hot- stick curlers, curling irons, and overnight curlers.

I watched tutorial videos and read reviews about this product before I purchased and I have to say it's the best hair tool that I have in my collection. For me, it curls better than a curling iron or straightener I never had beautiful defined curls like this that last and last until I wash my hair..
Michelle from Washington state
Had my doubts about this kinda curling iron but when I used it WOW it was so easy to use! At first it was intimidating cuz I thought my thick hair would get stuck but no problems whatsoever. Super quick and easy love this product!
LatriciaV from Harker Heights Tx
So I was excited to get this because it takes me forever to curl my hair. ( my hair is to my butt) it's not bad but it took me the same amount of time as if I would've used a regular curler or wand. My hair got tangled a few times but my hair when finished was pretty.
Lin from Los Angeles, CA
I HAVE FINALLY FOUND MY TO GO TO CURLER!! I have never been able to curl my hair on my own. When I have tried on my own, they always uncurl or I just don't hold it right and would came out flat and zigzagged. I always had to have my sister or nieces help me also. But with this curler! LIFE CHANGER for me. I know its a bit pricey but considering that I have 2 left hands. It was totally worth it for me.
I love this! So easy to use!

I've owned this for over a year now, it produces amazing, damage-free curls! It's still working great and I still pick this over the other high end curling tools that I have.

My hair is really straight and I can't curl it with any curler, except for this one would 100% recommended!
Allison from Chicago Illinois
I'm a hair stylist but I can't ever curl my own hair without burning myself or taking an hour. This only took me 20 minutes to curl my whole head and I have super thick hair. My hair only got tangled once however it was super easy to get out and it even warns you that it's tangled! This will now be my go to all the time!
Shining Five Stars for Curls!
S L Rice from Apex, NC
I'm a mom to a toddler so any task needs to be able to be done quickly. This curling tool makes a task of beautification very simple. I piece out my hair, lay the hair in, it curls it, boom it's done. I can piece out my next section of hair while the last piece is curling. The tool does take a little finesse to perfect, but it is easy to get to that finesse point after a little practice. I love this iron and I wouldn't go back to my old regular clamp iron.
Great for beginner curlers
Shelby from MA
I am so bad at using a curling iron and this works so well. It does all the twirling work for you and it's way faster than doing it with a traditional curling iron. I have very thick hair and it gave me bouncy curls
Do not buy! GET BEACHWAVER INSTEAD!
Maggie from United States
Sucks your hair up and burns it then when it is time to come out it tangles. By the time you do get it out you are left with a tangled mess with a bit of curl. I bought this and used it then returned it. My hair was burnt and damaged after just one use. I would highly recommend the other one I got the beachwaver. It is so effortless and you get a automatic curling iron without having to not know where your hair is in the chamber.

Amazing and very easy to use!!
KG from Minnesota
I have fine hair and this works great! I'm terrible at curling my hair and this tool is very helpful! It's a little on the chunky/heavy side, but it's not scary to use at all!
Sheri from Dallas, Tx
I always felt like I had two left hands trying to curl my hair, this product is perfect for me! Took all the hard work out for me. My hair is semi long in the front and short in the back and it worked just fine. It was really awesome on my daughters long hair, perfect curls! I'm personally glad this product was invented!
Momof2 from Louisiana
I love how easy this is to use. My hair looks great after using this, even at the end of the day.
Mina from Texas
This is the best by far,You do have to use smaller strands but it give out the cutest curls once you figure it all out.I love it
Best styling tool ever
Li from Massachusetts
Blow dry your hair with a round brush for volume, then section it, curl with this, spray with hairspray, and brush the curls out with a wide tooth comb. That's how you get big loose gorgeous wavy curls that last all day. It takes me 15 mins to get some of the best hair I've ever had with this product. Seriously, do yourself a favor.

Easy to use. Not scary. Great for long hair. But I have short so needed to use the other one.
Absolutely What I Was Looking For!
Christine H from Chesterfield, VA
So, I have naturally (very) curly hair, but I love when my hair stylist straightens my hair and then puts curls into it, but I just cannot make my arms/hands work a flat iron or curling iron in the way needed to style hair like this. I dunno what it is, it is like trying to sign your name with your non dominant hand. Either way- I came across this while scrolling through sales and decided I needed to try it- so I ordered on impulse- and I am SO glad I did! This thing does exactly what I want it to- gives me that fresh from the salon blowout hairstyle- without actually having been to the salon. I simply straighten my hair with my flat iron as usual, and then go through my hair and using small sections- I curl it all. I had to look up a video in order to know how to correctly place my hair into it- but other than that- super user friendly! It pulls the section of hair into it and then beeps when it is set- tada! Also- if you are worried about tangles like I was- this thing does have an excellent anti-tangle feature. When I was first trying to use it, I had too big of an uneven section and so when I tried to curl it- it did not grab onto the hair correctly and instead of tangling up- like you would expect- the machine sensed the issue and immediately stopped the curling process, while beeping. You then have to hold down the power button to stop the beep, which resets the machine- and you are able to just easily pull it right off your hair. So while that feature may be annoying if it happens because you are using too big of a piece- it is definitely worth it, because of how well it prevents tangles. Definitely a must buy!
Worth every penny
Tell Tale Tart from Illinois
As someone with very thick, long hair a standard curling iron is impossible to use. This little machine gives me the springy curls I have always wanted in about 30 minutes. It is very simple to use and I love that there is no chance of burning my scalp or any other part of my body! I do suggest a good heat protectant. I use Redken Iron Shape. It leaves my curls shiny with great soft hold.
Do yourself a favor
KrissyPoo from Maryland
You know all those girls who can do their hair super cute, but "we" are not coordinated enough to figure it out? Well, if you buy this..those girls can suck it! I have thin, flat hair..this gives me great curl with zero skills needed. Read the directions, and just add hair spray. Curls on point!
Marissa from Morgantown, WV
I just bought this product and I am so very pleased with it. I am not very good at curling my hair and this product makes it so easy. The curl that it does is perfect. Worth every penny.
The best thing ever!
