Online Only Silhouette Hair Straightener

Item 2500737

Color:Turquoise

Options

View All Options
A hair straightener constructed of precision engineered, 1 1/4", 100% solid rounded ceramic floating plates. Ceramic can be heated at maximum temperatures, is corrosion resistant, has high glide-through properties and requires less passes of the iron through the hair, resulting in less damage. Negative ion therapy conditions hair, keeping it lustrous and healthy.

Straighten hair or create flowing, soft curls with the versatility of the Silhouette's rounded plates. Negative ions disbursed through the ceramic plates seal natural moisture in the hair cuticle for maximum frizz-free shine, ensuring perfect styling and optimum health. The ergonomic design features a soft touch finish, temperature control from 140 F to 410 F, and a salon-style swivel power cord.

      I had been eyeing this for a while and I finally bought it on sale. Heard reviews of it and I couldn't wait to try. I tried so hard to love it. I used it for a month straight. All it does is snag and fry your hair. No mater how many times I went over it, my hair was still frizzy. I hope this saves someone the money!

        I love this flat iron! I have never been one to spend more than about 40 dollars on a styling tool, but this is worth it! I got this for Christmas 3 years ago, unfortunately I recently dropped it really hard on a bathroom floor and it lasted a little while after that, but finally bit the dust. I am about to purchase my second one! All of my friends loved this tool and used it all the time! It is simple to use, heats up quickly, and is the perfect size for my thin, medium length hair. I would compare the quality of this to a Chi, possibly even better! Hope this helped!

            The plates on this are so short it doesn't work on any kind of thick hair. It says 450 degrees but there is no way...won't work on more than a 1/4 inch section of hair. Won't curl hair at all. It doesn't glide through the hair it just stops. Easily the worst straightener I have ever used. Can't believe it is that expensive.

                The plates didn't align, and every time I pulled it through my hair, it pulled hair out. When I returned it to the store, the girl working there said she was using the same flat iron, because her friend took her favorite one on a trip with her, and she couldn't wait to have it back. She had the very same problem I did.
                I would have given this a 0 star, but the page wouldn't let me.

                    Returned. When clamp of the plates did not align, leaving a big space where the air would be straightened. On top of that, the top layer of plates was cracking on the sides (visible before first use). I tried it anyway and as expected, it ended up snagging my hair. Ended up purchasing the Bio Ionic one pass which I am SUPER happy with.

                        I was very nervous to purchase a new straightener as I have fine, difficult wavy hair that tangles and gets caught in EVERYTHING as well as struggles to hold a style (straightened or curls) which has posed a problem when finding a straightener previously. This straightener has not caught or pinched my hair ONCE! It straightens easily with just a pass or two through a layer of my hair, no need to clamp it crazy tight or repeat a million times, frying your strands. I'd also highly recommend this as a first straightener if anyone is looking for one for a young relative, etc. No matter how flat against my scalp I press this thing (even the plate sides!), I have found it next to impossible to burn my scalp or ears, bar actually clamping down on an ear. I'm so impressed! Plus it's blue and adorable, which is never a bad thing. The soft touch texture to the straightener is very nice on my hand as I use it. My previous one made my hand a bit sore which hasn't happened with this at all. Super pleased so far and can't wait to see how long this lasts. Hopefully a long time because I adore it!

                                        The biggest difference between these both products is that the Megastar has a digital display screen with automatic shut off so if you forget to turn it off the Megastar does it for you, and the Silhouette does not.

                                        Yes it does have floating plates, by having floating plates it allows you to have more flexibility in using your tool. The freedom allows the two sides to adjust based on the angle to get as close to each other as possible. The closer the plates get, the more you will be able clamp the hair correctly.

                                        The Silhouette is made from pure ceramic stone so you have to be careful in terms of not dropping it or banging it around. Will she be doing her own hair? I would recommend the Megastar; with single-pass technology, it will be much easier and quicker, and gentle on the hair.
