Most Helpful Positive Review Love this tool!
Omg this curling iron is the COOLEST thing ever. It's very easy to use and creates awesome beachy waves. The only con is that I accidentally ordered the 1 inch instead of 1.25 but I'm going to keep it anyway because I love the curls it gives me.
Most Helpful Critical Review NO
I would NOT recommend this iron for people with longer than shoulder length hair. It has a major design flaw in that it snags and catches the hair at the ends between the rotating barrel and the handle. My ends are FRIED after one use...and yes, I followed the directions perfectly. My hair is just too long for this to work.

At first when I bought this product it was a bit of a struggle to use, in fact I almost returned it. I had to watch YouTube videos and practice. I kept getting my hair caught and it was a struggle. However, once I got the hang of it curling my hair became so easy! It doesn't take long to heat up, and I can do my hair in less than 10 minutes. My curls look pretty and shiny. Only problem is I wish it came in other barrel sizes. I love loser wavy curls and it would be perfect if they had one with a larger barrel. I also really love the design. It's unique and pretty. Although it takes time getting used to using, if you are patient you'll get the hang of it, and it's worth it because you can curl your hair even if youre in a rush and it still comes out looking pretty.
Best Curling Iron Ever
OneliaE from Olney, MD
This is the thing ever, I have never never, been good with curls. My hair is straight and it was easy just flat iron it. It has take me a little little time and practice before getting the hang of it. It is super easy to use, and the results are beautiful.
Ashton from Evansville Indiana
I've never been great at curling my hair with a traditional curling iron. This iron was a game changer. The curls are so soft and beautiful. It was "love at first curl" 😃The rotating clamp makes it so much easier and faster to curl hair. I will never use anything else!!!
I am not sure about this product yet
Dom from Florida
I am actually disappointed and I'm waiting to see if my hair has to get use to it!
amazing curling iron
cindy21683 from Texas
I have always purchased cheap curling irons. they never lasted, I got tired of spending money on a curling iron that took forever to reach temperature. I was hesitant to purchase because of some negative reviews. but it works perfect for me. heats quickly and doesn't damage my ends. leaves behind soft silky curls that last.
great curling iron

Worth Every Penny!!
Mallory from Bloomington IL
This is the best curling iron hands down!! It makes the best curls, and doesn't make crunchy curls. My curls are so soft with this curling iron, and my curls last for days!!
Didn't like it.
Annamarie from LA
It burned my hair
Great curling iron
Suzie from Talbott TN
I love the way this makes my hair feel. So many tools make my hair feel stiff and burnt, but after this tool, my hair feels soft and touchable. If you have frizzy hair, your hair can get caught, but I can easily twist the iron with one hand and with the other keep hair from getting caught. As for fine hair, take a bigger section of hair. I have fine to normal hair, but if my section of hair was too small, the clamp wouldn't hold. When I had a bigger section of hair, it would hold. I believe it's to protect your hair from being damaged. I would definitely recommend giving this a try.
Love this tool

Not for long hair
Kimberly from Charlottesville,VA
Not for long hair! My hair got caught at the bottom of the iron so many times I gave up and returned it. Sucks because I wanted to love it.
Belsa from GA

BEST THING EVER!!

This is the best curling iron ever hands down!!! Makes your curls so pretty, and very easy to use! I recommend getting it.
I loved the curls
KK from Sacramento, CA
This product is definitely a good buy, the curls stayed for couple days and I loved it
Not for fine hair
Emily from Pittsburgh
If you have fine hair and don't want to curl half your head just so the clip can hold your hair, then don't get this. I used it a few times...clean hair, dirty hair, hair with product... nothing helped. I also watched videos like the other reviews suggested. Just wasn't for me which is sad because I so badly wanted to love this!
TinaT from Michigan
I am in love with this curling iron. It gives my curls life, which in turn gives me life with the beautiful end result every time! At first, it took some getting used to as the barrel on this is what rotates, so you can't just rotate the whole iron to wrap the hair around the barrel to create the curl. The heat range on this curler, I would say, is normal. I typically have it at 380°F or 400°F for my hair. Currently, I have an asymmetric bob with an undercut hair style, and can curl my hair in 15 minutes. The different types of curls that I can do with this is great. I'm glad I took the chance and bought this. I am thinking of purchasing the 1" curling iron too because of how much I love it. I also have a few other Drybar products and love that it all matches. For reference, I have dark, Asian, thick hair that grows and grows.
Watch videos and practice!
Alexa from East Gate
This is my new favorite iron. It's not a traditional iron with a clamp though - so you need to change your technique. Watch videos BEFORE trying and it's much easier to get the hang of. Absolutely worth the price!!!
Makes the perfect beach waves 😍
Charlette from Bend Oregon
Creates beautiful curls, fast and easy to use once you get the hang of it. I definitely recommend watching videos and practicing but once you get the hang of it you will love this tool!!
WORTH EVERY PENNY
Bink from Sarasota, fl
Hands down the best hot tool when it comes to making beach waves as well as soft curls! I worked at DryBar over 6 years ago now and I still use the 1" and 1 1/4" Bender on all my clients, as well as myself. The first 3-Day Bender I had (6 years ago) finally died after *5* years of every day clients, I only do weddings and blowouts, so constant use 6 days a week. Truly an awesome hot tool to add to your arsenal. I hope they never ever get rid of this styling tool because it's literally all I use!
Absolutely love it!!!
Christina from Noblesville
Took a few tries to get accustomed to the design but after successfully mastering it, I love it!! You do have to be cautious as hair can get snagged but that's a given with any type of rotating device. Curls look awesome for 12+ hrs. I'm not a master yet at sleeping in then as my hair is extra oily and will not hold curls overnight even with dry shampoo and additional products.
Great curling iron
EBee719 from Sacramento, CA
Heats up fast. Provides great curls. I do recommend watching videos on the product before using as it works different than a traditional curling iron
Good curls, clamp won't hold
Kim from New York
For the price I paid I expected something a little better. The clamp is terrible. I had to try and have it hold time and time again. I did like the curls I ended up with but it's too much time and aggravation to keep attempting the same spot over and over. I'm returning it tomorrow for something else.
Waste of money
Anais from KS
Bought this to add controlled curls to my hair.watched multiple videos on YouTube. The thing does not work. I have it on the highest heat setting. It does not even remotely add a curl. My hair is not that long, and it gets all tangled in the tool. Utter garbage.
Awesome-IF You Know How To Use It
MarchGirl73 from RI
I've loved Drybar for many years. I remember when the 3 Day Bender didn't have a full clamp! I had that version & returned it, too. This newer version is so much better-IF you learn how to properly use it. Watch YouTube, there are tons of great videos on it. Check out home shopping channels for videos on this tool. So does Ulta! I have long-ish hair & this tool is great for me. Fast, consistent heat. Love the super long cord! Practice using WITHOUT HEAT! Clamp hair closer to mid-barrel & hold out your ends until you get hang of it.
