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!

Definitely Worth It from Denver
I actually bought this item several years back and I'm impressed to see Ulta pick it up. Yes everyone complains about how difficult it is to use but once you have it click, there are so many different types of curls and straightening all in one. This is a remarkable tool, you need to make sure that your hair has heat protectant before you use it and it's easier to glide through your hair
StephN from New York
I'll admit there is a learning curve to this, but this brand has tons of videos to help. Always put your thumb behind the light and before you put your hair in, make sure you see the light. Use vertical pieces. Curls hold for days! Many options depending on your angle! Love it!
Can't live without!
Stacer from Kernersville, NC
I love the Tyme Iron! There is a learning curve. I watched a lot of videos and the first time I used it was an experiment. But, I finally got the hang of it and it is second nature now. So much faster than other curling irons. Curls last for four days. Oh and it straightens too!
Not intuitive, but works!
Michelle from Washington
I have to say I received the product back in late 2016 - thought it was too good to be true. After numerous failed attempts to curl my hair - even after watching the tutorials, I threw my hands up and gave up. Only used it to straighten my hair which is one of the best hair straighteners I used. I don't know what possessed me to attempt to try the curling side again most recently but all of a sudden, it feels as though I got the hang of it without even watching the tutorials. The moment when you completed one curl was shock and awe like what you see in the tutorial videos. Weird, I know after 3.5 years I feel I have missed out and a lot of money buying curling tools, but once you do get the hang of it it truly is an amazing tool.

Super easy to use after watching one video. Love how it curls. Love, love, loved! 🖤🖤🖤
Lisams05 from Crown Point IN
Like everyone else found out complicated. I have thick wavy hair. I'd have to straighten my hair first. Then use this. Very time consuming. I had surgery so i didn't use it for months. Decided to give it another try last night and it won't even power on. I can't believe after only using this product a few times it doesn't work. I bought this one year ago. I bought a Paul Mitchell straightener 15 yrs ago that still works! Very disappointing and such a waste of almost $200
Makes curling so easy!
Brittany from PA
This iron is great for curling your hair (or straightening if you'd like). I've seen tons of reviews saying it doesn't work or it pulls on your hair - those people are using it wrong, guaranteed. Tyme will also do unlimited FaceTime sessions with you to help you fix any issues you're having - it worked wonders for me! It literally my curling time from an hour to a half hour, and I have thick hair! Love it!
Sami from ND
This fried my hair. It doesn't glide smoothly. it just pulled my hair.
Jen from Sacramento, CA
I LOVE this iron! I have frizzy, wavy hair, and this lets me get those sleek beachy waves. Before this, I'd have to use a straightener for the top of my hair, and a curling iron for the bottom. Now, it's all in one!
Great way to get the curls you want!
Melanie B. from Easton, CT
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 😡
Maki1582 from Mesa AZ
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 !!
Lora from Southaven, MS
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.
Unrestricted from Las Vegas
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!
