Most Helpful Positive Review Worth every penny!
I have long hair (mid back) and pretty wavy. My hair NEVER holds curl. I would always try and it would take me an hour to curl and then it would fall out in a matter of a few hours. With this curling iron it only took me 30 minutes my first time and 15 from there after (once I figured out how to work it well). The curl stays in ALL day and until the next morning. I barely have to use any hair spray. I have tried it on other friends hair who claim "you can't do anything with it" and sure enough it curls it perfectly and stays all day. The only con is that it can be hard to use until you get use to it. It only took me a few times before it was really easy to use. I would recommend this product to anyone!
Most Helpful Critical Review Don't buy it.
the first few weeks I had this, everything was fine, everything went well and my hair came out great. I've had this for about a month and a half, now it is garbage. The past few weeks I noticed that the iron would stay hot for only about 10 minutes even though all cords and buttons and settings were set accordingly. A few days ago I noticed after I turned it on and checked and double checked the cord was plugged in correctly, and it stayed hot for about a mere 5 minutes. Today and yesterday I have checked the outlet, checked the buttons and switches and did everything I could to make sure the iron would work. After checking at least every two- five minutes, the iron has never even gotten warm, it's still as cool as it was when I pulled it out of the closet.

I have waited sooooo long to find something that will curl my hair 😭 it's long, thick, kind of course. Nothing at all has ever worked and I have tried EVERYTHING. THIS WORKED!
I need some work, since I've never curled my whole head cause it never stays lol but I think I did pretty good for a first timer.
Loved it! Started smoking after years of using it...
mad1 from Moraga
Loved it! Super great product. It lasted me 4 years. Started smoking after years of using it...Not sure what happened but it started to not turn on after a while, then started smoking once and I haven't been able to turn it back on.
Livs from Pennsylvania
I used this product multiple times and every time I am reminded how much I LOVE it! It is so simple to use rather than a curling iron. Being a new mom, I don't get much time to do things for myself and this helps me look great in that short window of time I do get to prepare myself for the day.
Best curling iron ever!
Alison from Rochester, NY
I have never been able to get my hair to hold a curl. This iron gives me the prettiest spiral curls, loose waves; and everything in between. The gorls at Ulta did a great job helping my husband pick it out based on my hair length and type!
Quality product with a resonable price
Julz from Langhorne, PA
I dont care for the glove. I have to keep removing it while portioning my hair. The iron itself is great! Easy to use after a couple trial runs. Heats well & makes smooth curls
Curls & more Curls
Cinderella from Manassas, VA
I have naturally wavy hair that gets super frizzy & untamed when air dried. I bought this to give me a little pep in my step with some super cute beachy waves or straight up sexy curls. My only complaint would be that the wand seems short but that's not going to make me return it " )
Easy to use
kalenakay75 from los angeles, ca
This is my first tapered curling iron. I have easy to curl, semi-wavy hair. So I do not need to use it on a hotter setting. Unless you want tighter curls, then I suggest you use it on a higher setting. It's taking a little time to get used to the glove, but it's very effective.
Works Great - Prom like curls
Ashley from Morgan Hill, CA
I've never been good at curling my hair with your typical curling irons so when I got a hold of the wand I was super excited. This wand was very easy to use and makes your hair hold a curl very well. Only thing that didn't work for me was that because it is tapered it made more of a prom like curl. I wanted a bigger uniform curl, so I returned it for the one inch (not tapered) wand. They both work great!

Amazing I can curl my hair in minimal time the iron gets hot and stays hot
Sydney from Stillwater, OK
These are the curls I have always wanted! I absolutely love this wand. It heats up fast and I can get my hair done fairly quick, considering how thick it is. My hair is past my shoulders and extremely thick, the tapered barrel is perfect for it. The curls hold without hair spray for two to three days. It's amazing!
Curls, but not easy
emccormick from Denver, co
I liked this curling iron because it really does curl, however, when I wrap my hair around the barrel, I can't get the ends of my hair to stay on the iron so they become uncurled and kind of spiky. I think the problem is because my hair is textured at the ends, the pieces are uneven and won't stay together when wrapping the iron. Instead, I exchanged this iron for a 1" standard barrel iron (ceramic-Hot Tools brand) and it's absolutely perfect for giving me that tousled wave look!
Kelsey from Detroit, MI
It's been really hard to find a curling iron that actually curls my hair for an extended period of time because it's so straight. This works!
Tina from Greenwich, CT
I love love love this wand. It is amazing. It creates some really nice tight curls if you do it in smaller sections but you can also create some really nice waves if you style it in bigger sections. I personally like to style my hair in smaller sections. Then the curls hold longer and better. So much so that the next day I still have a nice style to it and can leave it like that. My hair usually doesn't like to hold curls for long. They usually always end up falling out but not with this product. I just curl it and then spray a little bit of strong hold hairspray and I'm good to go. I used to have to use hot rollers and let them set for 40 minutes and then take them out. I would also have to use a lot of strong hold hairspray and even then my curls would a lot of times fall out by the end of the day. So that's saying a lot.
Love This Iron!
cs326688 from Philadelphia, PA
Love this curling iron! My hair is a thick, somewhat wavy texture, and it doesn't hold a curl all that well. Clamp curling irons tend to straighten my hair. This curling iron gets hot enough that not only does my hair hold a curl, it stays curled into the next day! It's pretty easy to use (check out how-to videos online). It does get very hot, so be careful! A glove is included to help protect against burns.
Good value for curling wand
Mintie from Kauai, HI
This wand is very good! Heats up fast and my curls last a long time without hair spray.

Easy to use and creates a great curl.
Great for over curls
tahtah from Englewood, NJ
I love how fast it is to curl my hair.
Kk342 from Indiana
I love this iron! It makes gorgeous curls! The only thing I would criticize is that it is a teared iron and when you wrap your hair around it starting big side to the smaller side all of my hair just naturally slides down to the small side so they are all the same size. But I still love the curls it makes! They are definitely unique and it gets hot QUICKLY! Which is a great plus! Awesome iron I would recommend.
Love it but be careful
Shannda from Vancouver, BC
I love this curling iron but watch out! The tip melted into my hair and burned a bunch of my hair off. Spent a week getting plastic out of my hair. Hot Tool had me send it back to them so they can see what happened. They also sent me a new one. Kinda scared to use it now. But his can't happen again right? LOL. It's going to take months for my hair to recover. I'm checking off "Yes, I would recommend this to a friend" but use caution.
Jen from Pensacola, FL
its awesome, love that is has temp. control, heats up quickly, my curls last forever
Great wand for curls!
Chutchens from Hooper, utah
Easy to use even on little girls hair! Use low setting
LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!
Amazing! from Fremont, CA
I love this product. I love got tools in general so I decided to try the wand. My hair does not hold a single curl so I was nervous spending this amount of money without knowing if it really worked. Tried it and curls stayed all day. Tip: put it all the way hot. It's longer lasting and spray your hair with a little bit of hairspray. Love this!
borincana from Philadelphia, PA
My hair is already wavy but when I used the curling wand it held the wave perfect all day and it didn't frizz up. I looked as if I had beach waves and i freaking loved it. I also used it on my aunt whom has color treated hair. It looked amazing she was in love and when she woke up the next day the curls/waves were still in. Talk about waking up pretty. :-)
Kitten from New Baltimore, MI
All I can say is wow! One of my close friends had a wand and used it on my insanely thick, difficult hair. Normally my hair takes at least an hour to curl, and she curled it in 20 mins. I thought this was amazing but was even more amazed when my hair looked just as bouncy and beautiful when I woke up the next day after only using a bit of flexible hold hairspray! My hair never holds curl for long so I was shocked! Within the next few days I bought my own and couldn't be happier! It's easy to use and makes me feel like a professional hair stylist! My hair comes down to my butt: it is long and thick and hard to manage. This wand makes it look like beautiful mermaid hair! I suggest it for everyone, but especially those with long, thick locks!
Sammy the Fashionista from Scottsdale, AZ
My friend had one similar and I loved how the curls looked on my hair, so I decided to buy one of my own. I have to say it was one of the best hair tools I have EVER purchased. It is so simple to use and I got so many compliments on my hair. The curls were almost loose beach-like but still edgy for a party.
