I just got this in the mail and started playing with it! Im not a hairstylist and I'm not very good at doing my hair until now! . But I do love love love this! The way it makes the curls in just hair, perfection! I can't wait to see what other hairstyles I will learn with it. Definitely worth the money.
Don't buy unless you want to make the time incestment

I don't have this particular Marcel iron, by the Hot Tools Marcel iron I purchased is no longer available.
The temperature control settings are great, and the iron does get very hot. I watched many videos before and after purchasing so that I felt like I knew what I was getting into. Apparently that wasn't enough.
This seems designed for hair stylists to use on clients (makes sense), but is not at all user friendly. I feel like other reviewers must spend a lot of time doing their hair to get the hang of this because I have had no luck so far. I have naturally wavy hair so I don't use hot tools a lot, but sometimes I want that blown out look. As someone who used to perform a lot I have a lot of experience doing my own hair but just don't do it casually as much. It is not worth the time investment for someone like me.
My favorite curling irons... have 3 sizes!

Perfect for long loose twisted curls... I get compliments all the time!
Hands down, best curling iron

Wow. I had no idea my beach waves could looks so good EVERY TIME I use this. No clamp mark from a spring loaded clamp. Waves so natural, each section has a different wave so it doesn't look like one big wave, and it is so fast and easy to use. I find i have better control when using the Marcel clamp then traditional irons. Just make sure to watch videos before buying so you know what you're signing up for. Very easy to get the hang of. Just once and I got it.
I just hope the handle doesn't degrade over time like my last hot tools curling iron (different model!
Best curling iron

This curling iron was my first marcel curling iron I purchased. I recommend to watch some tutorials on how to use it before purchasing to see if a marcel iron is something you would want to start using. It does take some time to get used to it but it's not that hard to learn. If you have small hands it might be difficult to use with one hand. My curls held up all day even without hairspray. It didn't take longer to curl my hair with this iron. I think it actually requires less time than a spring iron. With this barrel size you can create beachy waves, loose curls, or regular curls depending on your hair length. It heats up evenly and has a temperature knob to adjust the heat. I only knocked off one star because the handle part felt a bit cheap. But otherwise this curling iron is pretty amazing.
Best iron ive ever used

I had little experience ever curling my own hair, so the first time i had to figure out how to use & hold this product i ended up cussing it out, but that was my practice round and i quickly learned the best way to hold it. Im here to tell you i am so thankful for the way this iron is made and it is now the most amazing product ive had for my hair. So easy, smooth, & quick to use

I never do these reviews unless I'm really impressed by something soooo this was a MUST! My new hairdresser uses this tool on my hair to give me those beach-y waves & I have to tell you that my hair held curl for 5 DAYS!!! That's right FIVE DAYS!!!!! I got my hair done on a Friday and didn't wash my hair until that following Tuesday!! NEVER in my 36 years of being alive has a styling tool ever held my hair that long!! Completely impressed and totally ordered one!!!

WHERE HAS THIS BEEN ALL MY LIFE. This makes spring irons seem like complete pieces of poop. Ill never look back. I have straight to almost wavy, easily breakable and chemically damaged & split hair, that is on the mend, so I know it would have been amazing when my hair was in a much healthier state. The wins here on the Alaskan ocean was insane today, and my hair has held the curl for over 8 hours. It's so quick, too. I have breast length hair and it takes less than 20 min to curl. Yes please. Already plan on getting it in another size. JUST DO IT!♡
