Most Helpful Positive Review Yaaaassssss
My hair is long, straight and barely holds curl. I've used this wand a handful of times and am very happy with the results! Curls/waves lasted until the next day and were easily touched up and restyled. I have a tapered smaller wand and love this full barrel for big hair!
Most Helpful Critical Review WORST CURLING WAND EVER
I hate this curling iron! My first one I bought got a shortage in the cord, and one day sparks flew out of it! I bought the exact same one because it is one of the only curling wands that is 1 1/4 in. with heat settings, and I have had it for maybe 5 months. Today I was curling my hair and there is a shortage in the cord! AGAIN! Such poor quality. I have to go find a new curling wand now that hopefully won't have sparks fly out of the cord.

not worth it. it takes forever to heat up and doesnt even curl. i have wavy hair so my hair curls so easy but not on this wand. dont get it.
Kaitlyn from Washington State
I tried using it about a dozen times thinking it took a few times for it to fully heat up to use but I could always touch it even after leaving it to heat up for a half hour. Very disappointing product.
Don't waste your money

I bought this and in less than a year it stopped working. I tried returning it but they won't let you if you don't have the box.
Stopped working in less than 1 year
LongHair from Texas
This is a decent tool, but not made too well in my opinion. I would love the way my hair looked about 2 hours after curling, just a little wavy. After owning it for just under a year, it stopped heating up completely. It still lights up so it is getting power. Just no heat at all.
kittyspeed from FWB, FL
I've been looking for a simple curling wand in a color combo I liked. This hits the spot! It works well to create full bodied curls or soft waves. Has a variable temperature dial so I can choose my heat level.
Does not hold a curl.
Kristin from Burlington, VT
I should've read the reviews on this product. This does not get hot enough and does not hold a curl it's going back.
Brooke from Texas
I was very disappointed in this wand. I bought it after watching one of my favorite bloggers post about it. I could barely get it to even curl my hair and I haven't had that problem with other irons. Sadly, I didn't realize this until I tried using it at an out of town wedding.
Beautiful soft curls
Kvo from New Jersey
Creates soft/natural curls and is so easy to use!
Not again a wand
Rivkah from Wa
I wouldn't prefer a wand for curls, iron clamp is more good for that. Not an easy task with an iron wand to curl
Didn't do anything for my hair
BrennaSaylot from Owensboro Kentucky
Although I turned the heat all the way up to 450, it definitely did not get to temp. Even after letting it warm.for a while. It wouldn't even wave my hair.
Would not even curl my hair...
HG from Gloucester Va
Purchased this to have a slightly bigger barrel option in my toolbox.
It got nice & hot (who knows the exact temp, there is only a dial)...but would not put more than a slight bend in my "easy-to-curl" fine hair. I've owned gold-barreled clipped wands by Hot Tools for over a decade that still work wonderfully!! Maybe it is the black barrel material that was the issue?
I also would definitely prefer a digital temp display.
This went right back to Ulta... I'll keep using my 1" Paul Mitchell Neuro Unclipped which functions AMAZINGLY well AND has a 9ft cord!
Great for long thick hair
Littlemisy from Las Vegas
I have very long, thick and coarse hair. Its a blessing and curse all at the same time. For the longest time, Ive just been wrapping my hair around my normal curing iron to get the beachy loose wave look but it does leave that little kink in there where the flipper is. So ive been researching the flipperless curling wands that are meant for this exact hairstyle that I like. I checked all the reviews on the curling iron before purchasing it and a lot of comments talked about their hair not holding the curl and I almost did not buy this wand because of those comments. I dont usually do reviews but I wanted to specifically come on here and state that this is a wonderful Curling Wand. My curls lasted for 3 days! I think it is important to use product if you want the curls to last. I would not blame this wand for that. It was so easy using this wand and my hair turned out beautifully and lasted longer then my old one ever did. I highly recommend this want.
I would not buy this product again
Ravey Gravey from Turlock Ca.
I really enjoy the brand and the effectiveness but after twenty minutes my curls turned into one very lose wave.
Great curls but they fall out
SC from Austin, TX
Creates lovely large loose curls, but they don't hold. I have wavy hair that always holds a curl, so I'm not sure what happened here. I'm going to return.
3rd purchase that stopped working within 6 months
Erin from Washington, DC
I purchased my third Hot Tools curling iron last year, only to have it stop working (won't turn on) within 6 months. I wish I could say this was a fluke and the only time it happened... in reality, this was my THIRD Hot Tools curling iron that completely died in less than a year with 3-4x/week use. For this price point, that is just unacceptable. I kept buying new ones thinking it was just a fluke, but I can no longer support such a poor quality product.
On the bright side, when it's actually working, it curls quite nicely and the cord doesn't get tangled.
The curls fall out, 5 min later!!!
Shawna from Vancouver wa
I received this for Christmas and the curls won't stay in my hair. I do have straight hair but I have had lots of other curling irons/wands curl my hair and stay curled just fine. Which leads me to believe there is something wrong with this curling wand! I hope ulta will take it back because it is money wasted since It doesn't do what it is supposed to do for me.
I like it so far
Allie from Columbus, OH
Working on getting used to this curling iron and making it so the curls stay in my straight hair.
Don't waste your money
Janelle from Akron, Ohio
Even on the highest setting, it didn't come close to curling my hair. I normally like Hot Tools products but this is just worthless.
Michelle from Salt Lake City
Gave this the benefit of the doubt twice and it did not work at all, curls did not last when my hair was blow dryed and even with next day hair, had to return... maybe it's the material
I don't think I'd buy it again
Kalli from Canton Ga
Had to recurl har. It seemed the middle of it didn't get as hot.
Love This !
Shabbyshelb from Wilkes Barre, PA
I cannot use a regular curling iron to save my life, so this product was a real winner. Easy to use and creates beautiful curl/waves. Very happy with my purchase.
Curl did not last
Beckhamskiss from Charlotte NC
My curls fell out as after 5 minutes of curling my hair. Might work if you spray your hair down with hair spray it might hold. There are better curling irons out there in my opinion. Had to return.
Broke after two years
Irongirl from TN
It stopped heating up after two years. The light would go on and off based on how the cord was positioned.
Worst curling wand
Jess from Minnesota
Takes forever to create a curl and when you finally do, it flattens in a matter of minutes. I've had it for about a year and now it won't even turn on. I guess it doesn't really make a difference - working or not.
MadssMWAH from Ohio
Tried for those big instagram curls. Curls did not hold long at all. Used texturizing spray, shampoo and holding the curls to cool.
