Rated 3.61 out of 5 stars
I recently purchased this product because I wanted to start wearing my hair curly and it is ceramic plated. Well I love it! It has the temperature gauge so you can choose how hot you want it, which is great bc I watch how much heat I put in my hair. I also like the fact that it doesn't snag my hair and it heats up fast...i would recommend this product.
As a "higher end" curling iron I expected a little more from this product than I received. It definitely works just fine but it is heavier than most irons I have used in the past and the disproportionately skinny handle makes it awkward to hold. The clip is very strong but the overall design increases the likelihood that hair gets caught in the area where the clip attaches to the iron itself. Also when hot, the iron gives off a kind of "sour" smell. I originally thought it was just because the product was new but after using it for over a week now i noticed the smell is not lessening. So while I would still recommend this product because it is good quality, I say...for the money shop around a little before you make your decision.

Curl is short lived and no shine

I've had this curling iron for 4 years now and I've never had any issues with it. it's great, curls my hair so well, and I'm not sure what issues people have with it. It's perfect for me!

The curling iron works fine for me, but the coating is poor quality. My first one chipped everywhere after about a year of infrequent use, so I contacted Hot Tools. I got a replacement, and the coating started coming off that curling iron after maybe 10 uses, and the company doesn't provide refunds. I'd strongly recommend buying a different curling iron that isn't made to be disposable.

I couldn't be happier with this curling iron. It has revolutionized my hairstyling routine. Giving me the ability to create stunning salon quality blowout look in the comfort of my own home. If you're looking to elevate your hair game and achieve that flawless professional look. I highly recommend giving this current curling iron a try.

I much prefer this curling iron to my other hot tools curling iron because the handle doesn't get sticky.

Great for nice soft curl that holds

I am normally a fan of Hot Tools products. I was excited because it has been awhile since i had a 1" curling iron, however this broke on say 1 of use. Super disappointing and will be seeking a refund

I'm so dissapointed because this was a decent chunk of money I spent on it and it literally doesn't even hold any curl at all. Waste of money. My old conair curling iron does a better job than this.. I'm so upset. If you're looking for a good curling iron, girl- this is your sign to run away from this one.

I've had this curling iron for almost 2 years. Recently the cord has lost its connection and it will not stay hot unless you move the cord a certain way. Reminds me of a crappy phone charger. I loved everything about it up until then. I dont believe its under warranty any more so ill have to buy another. I have very fine hair and it doesnt always keep a curl. Ive learned to twidt my hair and curl it, gives jt a wavy look. The longer you keep it, the tighter the curls.

Love this product. No sticky handle. Curls are looking great!

Loves HOT TOOLS! They last for YEARS! The only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because it does close securely enough for my liking. I have a lot of hair but it's fine. I would never buy any other curling iron.

I have naturally curly hair but like to soften my curls occasionally. I have the Dry Bar iron but wanted something with a little smaller barrel. This iron did not curl...it frizzed...my hair. Completely awful. I was shocked at how bad it was. I'll just continue with the Dry Bar one and hope they come out with a smaller barrel. this has made me scared to try anything else.

Needed a bigger wand for more volume for my fine hair. It works great!

Great product. This is the first one I've bought with Titanium, and I like it over the gold one. It doesn't pull on your hair, even the next day because of hair spray. I like the variety of temperatures. I would definitely recommend this product.
Glo from Warwick
I used this iron about 10 times. I starting using another I thought worked better. The coating started peeling about 3 months after I used it (Note I purchased it and didn't use it until later time).
The curls don't lock that well either. Maybe another model would? I tried attaching pictures but am unable.

My father who is so kind bought me this hair curler. I was fairly unsatisfied when the hair didn't even hold the curl after 2 minutes. I held the iron for about 45 seconds against my head to form the curl, the curl fell after hair spray. I was sad I have to Return. Anyone else experience this?
Doesn't clamp onto the hair tight enough so you can smooth the ends and hair falls out before you can achieve an even curl.

It gets hot then cools down. I will be returning this item
Sharon from Georgia
This is the second one I've had and it all of sudden just stopped working after a year. The last one was luckily under warranty so I replaced it with the exact model. This one has done the same.
Sam from Kentucky
I bought the 1.25 inch and it doesn't curl my hair? I know how to curl my hair, so I'm not sure of the issue. But it literally doesn't curl, I have tried it twice now and both times I get the same results. And it gets hott, but doesn't really do much. Will he returning.
Reba from Orlando, FL
I love this curling iron! The temperature gauge allows you select the one you need for your type of hair and the cool tip is over size to allow for better control. A great product at a fair price!

My curls don't stay…my straight iron works better at holding curls.
