Not as great as expected
I purchased this curling iron to replace my 2 1/2 year old Hot Tools curling iron that had stopped doing a good job at curling my hair. Based on my experience with Hot Tools products, they only last a short time before they stop working as well as they did when new. I recently purchased a Babyliss flat iron which I’m pretty satisfied with, so I figured I’d give this curling iron a try. First of all, it feels cheap because it’s so light. It feels like a drugstore curling iron in my hands. Secondly, it has a much shorter barrel than my Hot Tools iron, by at least an inch or so. Thirdly, I find the top part of the barrel to be too small. This is the place you put your fingers when curling your hair. Therefore, I’ve burnt myself several times and I’m sure I will continue to do so until I get used to it. And lastly, I seriously have doubts that it heats up to 450 degrees. My flat iron gets that hot and you can see the steam and feel the heat on my head when using it. It just doesn’t seem like this curling iron reaches that high of a temp when I compare it to my flat iron and based on the curl results I’m getting. While it does do a much better job curling my hair than my old curling iron did, the curls don’t have lasting strength, which is what I was really looking for and expected from this iron since it gets so hot. Mind you, I do have very thick, coarse hair. So this iron may work better for someone with fine or thinner hair.So compared to the Hot Tools curling irons, I’d recommend this product. But there has to be better working and designed curling irons out there.
Burnt my hair
My hair curls very easy, at the lowest setting did nothing.. Actually no settings but the highest one worked. Made very loose curls and took long time holding to achieve them, my hair smelled like it was burning(which it was). My curls were gone in a matter of 2 hours. What a shame, I wanted big beautiful curls. I will keep using what works for me, the chi flat iron to make smaller curls, which last me 3 days. Returning this item.
Good curlers but I had better for a cheaper price
After 7years of usage my Conair Infiniti curlers finally gave out. Searching the web I came across Babyliss. I read all the great reviews and decided to give them a try. My only concern was that babyliss was twice the amount of my Conair’s. I figured they would work way better than my Conair’s since they were more expensive. Well I was kinda wrong. Babyliss works just the same as cheaper curlers. Babyliss gets hot just as fast as my Conair’s. They both have ceramic barrels. So why am I paying more money for these curlers and tgey do just the same as cheaper curlers?? I guess I am paying for the name. But I saw no major diffrence in babyliss and conair infiniti. I will say the color of the curlers are very nice. And the barrel is very smooth, making a smooth shiny curl. I am hapoy with these curlers and I like them a lot. I just dont see a big diffrence in babyliss vs cgeaper curlers.
I had ordered a larger barrel curling iron and found out it was too big for my short hair. The is perfect and it heats up quickly.
Best Curling Iron Ever!!!
I ordered this Tuesday and got it today. I tried it out and my curls look so flawless! Best purchase I ever made on amazon, I definitely recommend you to buy this product. 🙂
Babyliss curling iron 1 1/4 or 1.25
This curling iron works great, BUT, it leaves your hair smelling burnt. (My hair is extremely thick so I needed to set it on the hottest setting otherwise it won’t curl for me.) If you have thin hair this might not be the case, but if you have thick hair and are looking to buy this, it can be a down side.The actual curling part of the curling iron is kind a good size even for long hair. I have long hair and I dont have to recurl.Every time I use this curling iron people compliment my hair :D******I added images***
excellent curling iron
it heats up very fast. smooth curls with shine. doesnt burn hair. several heating levels, highly recommended. great value for money
Not for me
I have the Babyliss nano hair iron and it’s amazing but for some reason this won’t work well with my hair.
Heats up quick
I bought this on sale very happy that I bought it easy to use, and makes perfect curls even though I have thick hair…very satisfied
It Okay nothing to write a long extensive review on …
It Okay nothing to write a long extensive review on, it doesn’t feel any different than any other curling iron.
I also own the Babyliss 1 1/4" iron. I love it and use it often. I wanted something that gives the look of a blow out. I found that using a round brush (even a boar nylon mix) rips at my hair. This size gives the perfect blow out look.Much like the other ones in this line the tip is smaller than most irons so be careful when you reach to old it while curling. This one is slightly bigger than the other one I own so it was easier to hold. If you have issues wear one of those heat gloves they use with curling wands.Leaves my hair smooth and shiny. Not other irons does this for my hair.
Would never buy any other brand curling iron
I have the 1" babyliss nano titanium so I had no hesitation when purchasing this curling iron, and I have no regrets either. Babyliss is such a great brand and they have high quality hair appliances at a much lower cost than other similar products. This curling iron is perfect for long (shoulder length or longer hair) which requires some additional body. This curling iron is best for body curls and not the "spiral/pin" curls of smaller irons.
