          This takes far too long to do my hair. The whole glove thing is annoying. I'd rather use bare hands but you'll probably burn yourself. Would have been nice if they made the touchable tip/end a different color. I also thing the barrel is too short. I want to do my medium-long length hair in one swoop. This product makes me do every strand in two sections. Meh.

            I bought this wand after my old one (different brand) finally broke. It works great for making long lasting curls. My hair looks shiny after using it. I've seen some reviews where people have said that wands can be hard to use but I personally think regular curling irons are much harder to use and doesn't produce as nice of curls. I would consider this wand to be made for women with long hair since the barrel is a little longer than a regular sized barrel. It works great for my long hair!

                    I originally got the smaller sized barrel in the hot tools but the inch and a half is perfect for pretty curls that aren't too tight. I am good with straighteners, curling irons and Wanda but someone who is not might have a hard time with a wand. I let my friend borrow mine and she could not figure it out.

                            So due to Medical reasons I had to cut my long hair off to short and my larger wand just didn't work for my hair. This beauty is awesome! I can now have my Beachy wave look even with my short thin hair now! Love love love it!! #bestbuyever

                              This curler is super great! i have been looking for a good curler for years and this one heats up fast, is easy to use, and keeps my hair in good curls when i put it to the highest temp (which is really good and high!). my only downside is that when it is super hot it is pretty easy to burn yourself so just be careful.

                                Does this tapered iron come in a REGULAR length barrel of 1 1/4in. - 3/4in.? I have the extra long barrel that tapers from 1 1/4in. - 3/4in. but I don't need the extra long barrel. The website is not clear on this since it shows 3 different regular length barrels with supposedly different tapering widths.

                                I bought this for my asymmetrical bob, which is longer in front (chin) shorter in back. I'm worried that the tapered wand won't give me the effect I want - beach waves. I tried to use a 1 inch barrel curling iron, but kept getting kinks, so I decided to try the tapered wand, but am afraid that the 1/2 inch end will make my waves look uneven. Should I look for a non tapered wand or can I achieve the look I want with the tapered wand I purchased? Thank you!

                                  The Nano Ceramic Tapered Iron will give you the beach wave look. Make sure to loosen the curl. Another tip is not to leave your hair on the Tampered Iron to long. I also recommend checking out the internet for tutorials.

                                Does the 1-1/2 inch come in XL barrel??? I have long hair- down to my stomach- I'm not sure if regular length will be long enough.
