Rated 4.64 out of 5 stars
The Kristin Ess Nanoblack 1" Pivoting Wand is the curling tool of my dreams. It has an amazingly long 9-foot cord so you are not tied to your outlet. The handle magically rotates from 180 degrees to 90 degrees for much easier styling (and less stress on my hands and arms). There's one button that you use to turn the wand on, off, and to set the temperature setting. There's also a digital display with 4 different temperature settings: 325˚ F (for thin or fine hair), 365˚ F (for medium or wavy hair), 400˚ F (course or curly hair), 425˚ F (for professional or advanced users). When you choose the temperature, the display will blink the temperature until it gets to the right heat. This wand heats up in a few minutes (super fast)! I have naturally straight, fine hair so it's tricky to acquire curls. This wand makes it incredibly easy to give myself voluminous beach waves. I curled my hair on the 325˚ F setting, giving each parting of hair about 2 to 3 minutes of heat. The 1" ceramic barrel is clampless (so no awkward crimps). It does take a little extra effort to hold your hair in place when it is wound around the barrel (make sure you use that handy glove). The glove is not heatproof, but it does dampen the heat if your hand brushes the barrel. I was able to curl my entire head in under 15 minutes - which is way quicker than my older curling iron. This wand was especially effective as I had natural oils saturated in my strands from not washing my hair for a couple of days (imperative if you want a more effective curl). Spray your waves with a light hairspray and voila - you're all ready to debut your new look! I highly recommend this product!
I tried for the first time and so far liking the curls but I can't figure out how to make it to 90 degree angle and there's no instructions .

My wand does not pivot! There are no instructions in or on the box on how to make it pivot to the 90 degree position. There are also no instructions online that I can find. It shouldn't be this difficult to figure out - I even got my husband to try with no success. Does anyone have suggestions?! ULTA - you should allow me to give the star rating that I want and still be allowed to do a review!!! I would not have given a 4 Star rating otherwise

I love my Kristin Ess Nanoblack 1" Pivoting Wand. I have ridiculously long hair that is such a struggle and hassle to curl but it is so much easier with this pivoting wand. I'm highly impressed with the innovative handle that pivots 180 degrees to 90 degrees. It's much more easier to style and I love that my arms don't tire out as quickly. I'm able to get the perfect beachy waves thanks to the clampless super smooth ceramic barrel. I'm definitely happy with this product and very impressed with the beautiful end results!

Honestly this tool is such a game changer specially for color treated damaged hair like mine because it has 4 heat settings. It makes doing your hair so much easier and faster. I love that it doesn't damage your hair and it works like a dream. Honestly it saves me so much time and money because my hair looks just like I got out of the salon.

The packaging is beautiful and professional. The tool is a wand so it doesn't have a clip like a traditional curling iron. This will give you results like the trendy beachy waves that all we all want with layers we are wearing right now as opposed to the tight spiral curls of the past.

This is easy to use. Swivel helps curls come out perfectly with zero effort. And it dosnt melt my hair. Love it

The NANOBLACK 1'' Pivoting Wand produces beautiful curls that held well. It heats up quickly and the long cord makes styling at angle doable without pulling the cord tight. It features a 90 degrees pivot in the handle to be able to change the curling angle. I found this feature required a firm grip and twist to change the wand from a typical straight wand to the 90 degree angle. I wish this was easier to adjust, so you could use this feature mid curling. I personally do not see how this could be done without burning yourself due to lack of space on the barrel end next to the pivot point. I think this is an oversight to this selling point. Maybe a push button pivot point would of allowed this feature to be more functional while in use. My one star off is due to this oversight in adjustment mid styling.

I don't curl my hair often but the perfect opportunity came up for my cousins wedding. I pulled the pivoting wand out of the box and went right to it. Honestly there was a sharp learning curve for me. After the first ten minutes I was grumbling a bit wondering why anyone would use such a thing. But by the time I finished I was in love. The loose curls were GORGEOUS, like I never thought possible. My mind was completely changed.

I am so impressed with my new Kristin Ess NanoBlack Pivoting Wand Curling Wand! Such an upgrade from my curling iron! The pivoting handle is a game changer and makes hair curling so much easier. Also, the clamp free and super smooth barrel make perfect beach waves. I was not able to make such natural looking beach waves with my previous curling irons! I have recommended this products to my friends and also to anyone looking for shiny, natural looking beach waves. Quality product!

1. Gorgeous packaging and curling iron itself. Feels super high quality
2. I struggle for some reason with curling my hair with a flat iron but this makes it so easy while still giving "beachy curls" and not ringlets. It's something even a major novice can do and do well. You just wrap your hair around and voila! Cute curls.
3. Putting it in the vent position did make it easier at certain parts of my hair. Less awkward angles which is nice.
4. Only con is a matter of practice— getting the back with my hand wrapping around instead of a built-in clamp was a little trickier. I had a couple of close-calls with almost burning myself but I think that will resolve with practice.

This wand is hella easy to use and I love the swivel, it's so much easier to get the results I want with a lot less effort ( plus it's easier on my arthritic wrists). The curls come out beautifully and it doesn't melt my hair.

One of the best stylers I have used in a long long time! My hair is very long and on an occasion I find my hair tangled in my curling iron. This has eliminated that frustration. Amazing High quality. Even the packaging is amazing! I have had some girlfriends already buy the Kristin Ess hair care products! They are the best and worth the money!!

This wand gave me defined curls. The bend option helps areas around your head that is hard to reach. Since it doesn't have the clamp to hold the hair you have to grip the end of your hair at the tip of the wand, I know that a gloves was provided but it just didn't work well for me. That's the only downside. Overall, my curls still look good.

I recently received my Kristin Ess Nanoblack 1" Pivoting Wand and was very excited to try it! I have been using an old curling wand previously, but happy with the results. Wow, the Kristin Ess Wand heats up more quickly than my old one, plus provides higher heat. I really like the convenience of the pivoting wand. With its 90 degree angle, it makes it easier to curl hair on the back of my head. The resulting curls are fairly tight and bouncy . . .beautiful curls! I would recommend this wand for people with medium to long hair. If you have short hair the wands with a closing clamp is useful to hold the shorter ends. I would highly recommend the Kristin Ess Nanoblack1" Pivoting Wand!

I used to have problem curling my hair with curling iron because it is not flexible and my finger easy to get burned. This curling iron is a life saver, it can bend 90 degrees so i didn't have to twist my arm as much as i used to and it won't burn my hand. It heats up fast and the curl last long.
wlawson1973 from Goldthwaite TX
I was skeptical as I have naturally curly hair but when I want more defined curls I reach for a wand or iron to make that happen. So many do not give me beautiful curls as I imagine. This wand is amazing. Easy to use and quick beautiful curls with no hair getting stuck. Absolutely live w wry thing about it.
BzzAgent from Goose creek
I love the size of the curls this wand makes. Perfect for long hair and the bend option helps hard to reach places around your head. The only down fall is the small nub at the end to grip the wand. I know a glove is provided but I can't function fixing my hair with a glove on. Overall the product is great! Definitely recommend!!

Kristin Ess Hair | Nanoblack 1" Pivoting Wand is a professional quality cutling wand. The pivoting feature makes it easy to reach every last strand of your hair to give you long lasting waves or curls. It heats up quickly. It is easy to use even for beginners. Simply wrap one inch strands of hair around the wand and hold for a few seconds for long lasting curls. The results look salon quality. I love this curling wand and recommend it to anyone wanting quality waves and curls you can easily do at home.
Brandi from Kentucky
I cannot curl my hair to save my life. This curling wand is amazing! I love the pivot part of it, it makes it so much easier to do your hair! I have used a lot of wands and curling irons and this one is the best so far that I have found! DEFINITELY worth the purchase!!!
Fimi from Miami
I have been looking for a curler that gives drfined curls and takes less efforts. The wand can be twisted to 90° angle that makes curling so much easier. It provides longer lasting styles and shine.
Lauren from Boynton Beach
I actually love this curling wand. The barrel is SOO smooth. Like you can move it while you have your hair wrapped around it, smooth. It also heats up fast. The packaging was literally beautiful. The cord is tangle-free, long, and has a storage wrap built in. They really thought of everything here. I was extremely impressed with this product.
