Rated 4.55 out of 5 stars
I recently received a Drybar Reserve Vibrating Styling Iron complimentary from Drybar in exchange for my honest review, and this thing works like magic!
I have fine, wavy, hard to manage hair, and with just a few swipes my hair was smoother. At the end of 15 minutes, I looked like I had received a professional blowout. I am so thrilled with this product! I will definitely be recommending this to my friends and family.
I did not notice any difference in shine or frizz reduction when using this straightener. The vibrating feature is pretty much useless as my hair generally doesn't kink or pull compared with others. Also this straightener is so bulky and heavy, I can not use it to curl my hair because the grip is to awkward. And last, their is no temp display and only 5 heat setting options.

the vibration weirded me out for a bit but it seemed to really make a difference. no pulling, no breakage, smooth use. I'm a fan!
Ye Boon from Maryland
It snagged my hair so much I couldn't see pass that, it straightened yes but it wont glide and thats such a con I hand to return it after a 2 month trial period, I really tried giving it a chance.

So far i really like it. I use the vibration on it and it seems to do a much better job of straightening my hair without the heat damage. Its easy to use, lightweight enough to be comfortable holding it for period of time and goes very easy over my hair.
Jenny from Pennsylvania
It took quite a few passes to get it straightened and within an hour it didn't last. My hair was wavy. Not impressed at all and it's getting returned. This is ceramic and I've always used titanium and it definitely makes a huge difference in straightening my hair.

This was gifted by drybar. I have never tried a vibrating flat iron before so I was excited to try this. I like the adjustable heat setting and it did not damage my color treated hair! I cant wait to try this to curl my hair!
Emily from WI
This styling iron is really sleek and quite beautiful. The vibration was a bit strange for me- it honestly felt a bit gimmicky. My hair was very shiny after straightening, but other than that, I'm not sure I really saw any additional benefit to the vibration.

I was gifted the Ulta Drybar Reserve Vibrating Styling Iron, by Drybar, in exchange for my honest opinion.
I have to admit, I was blown away by this flatiron and it's performance. Never, have I experienced the results I have with the Drybar.
First, the easy of use with this flatiron is unbelievable. My hair was straightened in a matter of minutes.
After finding out that the vibration of the flatiron is to help prevent tugging/pulling and aides in quicker straightening, I was sold. The vibrating affect really works and I will never go to another flatiron from here.

I got to say I love this flat iron first just for the classy and sophisticated look of it. I have very thick hair this straightener is awesome works so good. It doesn't break my hair like other do and it heats up quickly. Even with the heat I feel like it doesn't damage my hair like others do. Others burn my ends so quickly. I love it!!!

I am SUCH a huge fan of Drybar, and since I was lucky enough that #DrybarGiftedMe, so I was incredibly happy to be able to try out their Drybar Reserve Vibrating Styling Iron!
It's a high quality product, which is apparent by simply looking at its sleek features. I love that it uses technology that won't frizz your hair, because I have really frizzy hair, especially in humid weather. I've found that this product performs phenomenally! It's now my new go-to hair tool!
Thank you so much for that another Holy Grail product, DryBar!

The Drybar Reserve Vibrating Styling Iron gifted by Drybar has been great! I have frizzy, long, curly hair that I like to wear straight pretty often, so I'm often using irons. I love the elongated plate on this styling iron, to allow for more hair to be styled at once and I can do my hair faster. There are also heat sensors to allow even heating with every pass through hair. This is the first time I've used a styling iron which vibrates to create tension (like when using a brush to blow out hair more efficiently) and ensure there isn't too much harsh pulling. Some irons tug at hair and I see strands coming out, but this is minimal with this iron. Th is iron helps my hair come out sleek and smooth. Can't wait to try it for styling waves also!
Cindy from NC
I was skeptical but this flat iron is a yes! First of all I used it in the lower setting and I achieved a beautiful straight result (this was after reving my hair) and what I liked the most is that regardless of it being 1 inch and me having 28" of hair, it worked in bigger pieces of hair. The vibrations just make the heat to be evenly distributed.
So, I was skeptical and now I am recommending this flat iron!

OMG, this hair straightener and flatiron is the best. I have kinky coarse hair, it's so hard to fine a good hair straightener. This one is the best one ever. I can finally do a silk press on my hair. I hair looks amazing and straight. I love it.
Alexisv09 from Yakima, WA
I've been using this over the past week and I am really enjoying it. I love how lightweight and easy it is to use. It heats up very quickly and I have noticed that it is faster to straighten my hair than a lot of other straighteners.
Suzy from NJ
This straightener gifted by Drybar is so so unique and works so well to give you smooth and sleek hair. I've never used a straightener or hair tool in general that has this vibrating function but it works really well and I can't wait to try it to curl my hair too!
Dianna38 from Los Angeles
I do travel a lot therefore I appreciate this styling tool was designed with universal voltage for overseas travel. The elongated plates makes it easy to use and approach different hair styles. I also know that is ergonomic design and does not takes a lot of space, I really love it and he helps me create easy straight hair or curls and waves

This straightener is absolutely worth the money! I have thick curly/wavy hair, and I only have to do a pass or two through each section to get it straight. The vibrating plates give a good grip on your hair to help it separate and straighten quickly, and I've found I don't need to heat it past 2 dots to get the straightener warm enough to smooth my hair. I've been using straighteners for 15+ years, and this by far is the best I've ever used!
Sabrina from Houston, TX
This tool is amazing! Makes straightening your hair so easy - and really feels like it makes my hair soft. The design also allows it to be used as a curling iron too if you like to curl your hair with a straightener!
DeniseC from undisclosed
This is such a different hair tool! I was a bit nervous at first but I love it! I have pretty thick wavy hair and very frizzy, I usually have to pass the hair tool over the same piece a few times. I love how easy it is to use and how even it got my hair with just one swipe. I am obsessed with this! My hair was so smooth after using and less flyaways!
Blanca from Florida
This flat iron did not work! It didn't heat up and it doesn't have a temperature reading display it vibrates but I think it's just pretty gimmicky and the flat iron feels cheap. It must be if it doesn't work!
Gabriela from Florida, FL
I have been using irons for my hair for a long time, this is a very comfortable iron to use, the size is perfect and the weight too, it has a long cable that makes it easy for me to move, I use it to curl and straighten my hair, This iron leaves my hair like a high-end iron, I use all the temperatures, I like to use the highest one for special days and my hair is very smooth, shiny and looks very healthy and my straight hair lasts perfectly until I wash it again and the other temperatures I use it for myself every day and I pass the iron quickly to keep my hair without frizz.
I had never used an iron that vibrates the use of both options and I definitely prefer the vibrate option because I notice that the hair is faster than the style I want it to be, it is not easy for me to curl my hair with any iron and with This is easy for me and I achieve the result I want. I definitely recommend this iron because my hair is so smooth and smooth as if it had been done by a stylist and that is the perfect iron for me.
Gyllian from Miami
This iron is a very interesting one. I say this because it is vert different from your normal iron. It did take some getting used to, but once I did it was great! One thing I really loved about this iron is that it did not feel like it was damaging my hair as much as my other hair iron. Drybar never disappoints and I will be getting one for my mom for Christmas! Loveeee
YanaS from San Jose, CA
This is my first Drybar tool and I'm amazed at the quality! This straightener is extremely easy to use and performs really well! I love the vibrating feature. It makes such a difference in styling my hair ensuring more slick hair in less time. Highly recommend! I received this tool complimentary from the brand and would buy it again.

If you enjoy styling your hair, but dislike the frizz and damage that accompany it, this is the tool for you because it helps you avoid both! Whether you want your hair to be straight, curly, or wavy, this tool can do it all. Best of all is the simple interface! All buttons are on the interior side so you don't have to worry about accidentally pressing them while styling. Press and hold the bottom button to turn the iron on or off. The middle button turns the vibration feature on and off. I always keep vibrations on and the iron has never tugged on my hair or caused any breakage. The top button increases or decreases the temperature of the iron, which is represented by the number of circles lit up on the exterior side of the device. My hair is fine so I use heat setting 2 or 3. The iron heats up quickly and cuts my styling time in half, curling or straightening each section the first time instead of forcing me to go over the same area multiple times. This also helps with preventing damage because it means my hair is exposed to heat for less time! After styling, my hair looks sleek and shiny but never flat or frizzy. With Drybar tools, my styled hair lasts all day and sometimes even into the next day! Highly recommend! Gifted by Drybar.

This styling iron has been super easy to use! It heats quickly, and the results have always come out so pretty and shiny. The vibrating technology allows for perfect tension without any hair pulls! Perfect for everyday use!
