Rated 3.15 out of 5 stars
I have short hair with lots of wave that I wear in a bob or pixie. The Coastal Carolina humidity is murder on any style and I am outside in all conditions in my job showing homes. Bringing back some order and taming the frizz is possible with this portable quick heating little styling iron. Love it and the handy travel pouch!
This is a *super* compact straightener but because it's so small it's a little difficult to use. I would basically only recommend using it to style your bangs and that's about it. I bought it to give my super short hair some wave and texture, but the plates are only like 2.5 inches long so you have to be really precise with your hair placement and where your fingers are because I've burnt myself a few times using it. Also, this doesn't have a swivel cord so it gets tangled while using it really easily, and the lack of an adjustable heat setting is annoying because it doesn't take 430 degrees to style my hair. I'm returning this.
perfect size for styling my pixie cut and it works great!

Great for baby hairs or bangs.

The size of this iron is great for getting the flyaway hairs BUT I would like to control how hot a flat iron is on my hair to prevent damage. Also. The cord is too heavy for the size of the iron making it difficult to manage quickly while styling since you have to make sure it's sitting correctly on the counter before letting go.

I bought the mini iron because I am always traveling and I don't want to take big luggage bag for my things. I am so happy with this mini because very small and very easy to use. I recommend this iron. Very good quality tool.

Perfect for travel. Small but does good on bangs and touch ups

I ignored the other reviews saying it was too small, and bought it anyway. I should have listened!
I already have a Bed Head travel straightener, and while I've used it for years, I've always disliked how it snagged my hair and never held my hair straight for long. I decided it was finally time for a new, better one. I have the Eva NYC travel hairdryer, and i love it. I figured I would try this.
First off, the packaging is really nice. I love the color and quality. Sadly, when it comes to the straighter itself, it's really.. Seriously.. Too small. I have fine, thin hair, and just by looking at this straightener, I knew it would be useless. It's not that it's too small lengthwise, because I could have worked with that. It's that the ceramic plates and width is so small that it's unusable except if maybe you're only wanting to straighten your bangs. I was very disappointed and returned it back to the store. Save your time and just buy a different one.

its way smaller than I had thought( and the straighten plates are not rounded on the edges so I can hear my hair getting more damaged as it straighten and curl

I don't see myself using this straightener at all. Might get left at my mom's for random visits. Totally pulls hair. Doesn't curl. Didn't get very warm. No variable temps. Plate edges are sharper than expected. Made hair fuzzy.
Jessica from Brighton, CO
Awful! I bought this to get my baby flyaways on my temples and it just pulls my hair and does not make it straight at all.

Tried to do my bangs but too narrow

It's the opposite of a flat iron that runs smooth. I have bleached hair(as healthy as bleached hair can be). Using on regrowth isn't great either

MAYBE for baby hairs, if you have thicker hair definitely not worth the price point.

I haven't actually used this product. I couldn't find a travel flat iron in the store myself. When I got up to the check out, the very nice associate and I were talking about my shopping experience. She stopped what she was doing and went to get the travel iron for me. When I got it home, that is when I realized how very small the product is. Mini really does mean MINI. It is much smaller that I was hoping for. Unfortunately, I will be returning this product.

I wanted something extremely lightweight and nothing too bulky that would take up space in my luggage. But this is almost too small! Although it's very cute, I wish it didn't create frizz or pull my hair because I would've made the small size work. Honestly best for a little girl and her dolls

Works great perfect for traveling

I absolutely do not like this hair straightener it doesn't get heat enough and isn't straightening my hair good. I would pass
KR from Lapeer Michigan
Item did not work, defective. Am returning
Cierra from OKC
It's tiny and barely heats up past being warm. I can't believe it's price tag for the abysmal performance
Acasillas from San Jose ca
I bought this thinking it would work like the bigger one. I got it and the button for off and on was loose like falling out with wire. I turned it on and it didn't straighten my hair that well.
Tammy from Kirkland, WA
I have curly hair and new style had bangs going everywhere. This works great for what I needed. Can smooth out flat or give bangs a little flip or twist. I would recommend. It's small size and bag will be great for travel.
Gizl from TX
Fell in love with it being travel size, the color, the clutch, and have been wanting one for touch ups and flyaways
Rae from Nashville
I bought this along with the Eva nyc travel size hair dryer (which I absolutely adore) this iron however leaves a lot to be desired. It's too small to wrap hair around to add waves/curls to hair, and as someone with thick, coarse hair, it takes up a little too much time to straighten each section. I wish it would have had a slightly thicker plate, as that would have solved many issues. Pros is it's size, it does straighten hair very well, heats fast, and works great- just isn't the best choice for my hair type. I'm planning on keeping it in my overnight bag, but for longer trips I'll just bring my full size iron.
Katie from Washington
I love it, the only thing is it's smaller than what I expected it to be. Other than that, it's gets pretty hot and works perfectly with my short hair and bangs, thank you! :)
Still looking from El Mirage
