Most Helpful Positive Review No need to straighten my naturally curly hair before curling
I have tried a lot of heat tools over the years. I mean, A LOT. Though I've found some good ones, I could never find one that delivered curls without me having to straighten my naturally curly hair first. That was until I discovered the TYME Iron Pro. People, listen to me... this device makes magic happen. My hair (which falls a few inches below my shoulders when left to curl naturally) does not need to be straightened first before I create my curls!! Time saved = minimum 30 minutes! When I got my iron I saw from an insert in the box that the company recommended I watch a short 4-step tutorial first to make sure I was using the iron properly. So I did, and it was pretty easy! But honestly, if I hadn't followed the directions, I'm sure my attempts to make pretty curls would have been a flop. So thank you TYME for making a video to teach your customers how to use this miracle wand! I used it to make beachy waves for the first time last night and they turned out fab! I am hooked, and I get compliments on my hair every single time I use it!
Most Helpful Critical Review Wanted to love it but.....
I wanted to love the product, but it was too much of a headache for me to get the hang of all the angles you must stay at to produce consistent curls. I'm a mother of 4 and to take the time to achieve this, as some reviewers have, well, maybe I'm challenged, but it was just too much after the two attempts and watching about 10 YouTube videos, reading the instructions in the box and on Ulta's site. I think I'm finally just throwing my hands up.....if my arms weren't so sore from taking the get through my thick hair. It becomes somewhat heavy after you've spent about 40 mins getting through all the sections of hair!! That may be just me having thick hair. Plus, I put it on the second lowest setting and my hair didn't slide easily and left creases. Just overall, disappointed. Anyway, I have the T3 trio and love it. Will stick to that. Thought if this was faster, it'd be worth it. Just not faster to use in my opinion, never mind the obvious learning curve to use. Returning it sadly. First time for everything!

You MUST thoroughly read the directions before using...I recommend watching the short video they have on their website showing you step by step instructions on how to use the wand for curls. It is not hard to use at all. I have very long, straight hair and never curl it because curling irons never seem to give me the look I want, it takes too long, and the curls never last. Not so with the Tyme iron...I was very pleased with the results and the curls did last (for the most part) until I washed my hair. The only reason I didn't give this iron 5 stars is because it's expensive.
Not only the price is ridiculous but not easy to used 😡

Not only expensive but really hard to use!! I couldn't do my hair to work with these product ! Is ridiculous the price and is ridiculous how hard is to used it !!

Easy to use
Unless your hair is made of silk this is useless
luvmystella from Tri-Cities, WA
I don't know how anyone has the patience for this tool. It is way too complicated. I was able to get a few wavy curls on my left side but on the right side forget it. I was not able to get the correct angle needed and the tool is awkward and heavy. I'll stick with a brand that doesn't require such a steep learning curve. It also did not glide along my hair like all the videos show. Maybe I just don't have the right hair for this, but I brushed through every section so there were no tangles and it still pulled my hair. Maybe if your hair is made of silk it will work fine.
Dee from Beaumont tx
Once you get the hang of it you're hooked. Hands down best hair tool I've ever had. So glad I bought this
Way too complicated not worth it
N/A from Indianapolis
Although I like the idea of this tool, it didn't pan out for me. I am a licensed hairstylist and I still found this tool to be too complicated for me, and my clients.
not for me.
:') from Louisiana
i have thick, dry, curly hair and i did not like it at all. it was almost impossible to create beach waves after i straightened it and i watched tutorials on youtube. i even used a thermal protection spray and it still fried my ends. gonna be a no for me
Smith from Buckeye Az
I rather use a regular curling iron
I feel like I am pulling my hair out
Nicole from Pittsburgh
If I could give this product 0 stars I would. Please do not waste your money. This product does not glide through hair to get it a curl it pulls, does not curl right at all. Not worth it
The thing I've been searching for!
Mollie from Salt Lake City
I struggle to keep a curl in my hair with a curling iron (I've tried the Beach Waver and the T3, and returned them both), and am not successful curling with traditional flat irons. I've been eyeing the Tyme iron for months, and finally bit the bullet. I watched the YouTube videos, and after a couple tries finally figured it out, and am consistently getting the look I want now! With a curling iron my hair would fall flat in a few hours, but I can sleep and work out daily and my Tyme-wave remains for days. I get the PERFECT second-day look, and only have to do a couple touch ups on day three. I'm honestly still in disbelief. It does take time to figure out how to use it, and my wrist hurts after curling the left side of my hair, but because I really only have to do a full curl/wave every three days it's been okay.
Wow this is a game changer!!
Brea from Teays Valley, WV
I splurged on this because I want to start curling my hair and my hair NEVER holds curl. I have a wand and by the time I walk out the door it has all fallen. Since using this it is super easy to use and I don't have to worry about burning myself getting to hair at the back of my head. I would purchase again. I honestly think it is worth the money. But be nice if it was cheaper. Highly recommend.

I loved the style but could not get the hang of it. It was too confusing even after watching the videos. Plus if ur left handed like I am count yourself out. Using a tool like this should not be so complicated.
Not for me, too time consuming and difficult to use
Apple Girl from Jax, FL
Not saying product is bad just not for me
Queeko from California
I watched the videos on how to use this and still could not get it to curl on one side of my hair. It's a beautiful hot tool but for the price point it should not be so complicated to use.
Very difficult to use
Sherrylynn from Chicago suburbs
You must watch the video first on how to use this styling iron. I purchased it for soft waving bunt hair ends still end up straight. It is great for straight your hair though, but you can get the same results with a less expensive tool.
Teresa from Cincinnati, OH
Too complicated, not user friendly, didn't perform, fried my hair...disappointed!
JD Cali from Cali
I was so excited for the Tyme Iron Pro to come to Ulta. I have been wanting one, no pun intended, for a long time. Sadly, this iron, although beautiful, just doesn't live up to the hype. Although I mastered the curling technique fairly quickly, I found it to be hard on my fine hair, and I was noticing breakage. Back The Tyme iron went, and back to my trusty Chi flatiron for beach waves. No need to fork over close to 200 bucks for what you can do with a nice flatiron and experience less hair damage.

HoneyKim from Anchorage AK
I literally wanted to throw this!!!
All that social media hype wanted me to buy this so I did! I should have already known that by now.
- this should just be a curler since they advertised it to curl and we're all like wowed by it, right?!
- straightening and curling side made this hard and complicated.
- setting 1-3 too weak to curl
- setting 4-5 smokes your hair, yes it was smoking and dried my hair!!! I got scared!
- it pulls your hair! It does not glide at all!
- if I did get a decent curl out it loses the curl after a minute or two so I'm back to square 1!
- I gave up and will be returning this item!
Good Luck to next Buyer!
I'm a fan!
Heidi from San Diego
Purchased after seeing videos on social media. Took me a few tries and a few tutorial videos to get the hang of it, but now I can't live without my Tyme iron! I use it both as a flat iron, and also to curl my hair. The curls hold way better for me with Tyme than with my Dyson airwrap curling irons. I have thick, frizzy hair. 5 stars! Love it!
Absolutely love it ❤️

This product comes very nicely boxed with a very easily step by step illustrations for no mistakes and allows for you to create your own style
Not ideal for thick curly hair
YG from CO
I started to use this iron and noticed I need smaller strands. I have a lot of hair, curly and thick, it would take hours to do my hair. Plus I noticed the strands were still a little wavy and did not have that smooth sleek curl wave to them. I unplugged it and heated my 2 inch Hot Tools curling iron to finish my hair.
Brenda from Mountain View Ca
I bought one and its too complicated! Those curls can be done with another styling tool and more affordable!
Angela R from Texas
I bought my tyme iron pro on Black Friday 2018 from their website, but I had been following them on social media for about 2-3 months watching their videos on the techniques that were required to learn before I even bought my iron. Once I did purchase it, I did have to rewatch a couple of technique videos while I practiced with my iron off, and then on. Yes, there is a learning curve but once you get the hang of it it's so easy and becomes second nature. I can do my hair in about 10-12 minutes now and before I wouldn't even curl it at all because it took too long. I loved my original pro so much I bought the limited edition marbled one for Xmas 2019. If you are willing, and have the patience to learn I think you'll like this hair tool! Plus if you need, their customer service will set up as many FaceTime videos as you need to help you get it down.
I returned it after one weekend
Lindsnotay from Georgia
It's a great straightener for someone who has time to learn it. I don't though. And it didn't work great with my hair type. I retuned it after 4 days.
not worth the effort
Nicole V from Philadelphia, PA
as a hair straightener it's fine, I guess. but as a curling iron? not worth it. there's way too much of a learning curve and I don't have the time to schedule an appointment to have someone tell me what's the proper angle I need to hold my hand at and how to properly hold the curling iron and looking like a monkey with a banana. it was frustrating getting inconsistent results and when I did get a really good curl, it didn't last or hold. also, it pulled hairs out as I curled. I can't afford to have hairs pulled out. I returned it soon after. probably just going to get a Chi or something.
