Highly recommended

I was so confused to which curler to get, and I think I made the right choice. It heats up really fast and the curls are exactly what I want them to be. It took me sometime to get the hang of it but once you get it, it works! The size is perfect, doesn’t make my curls too big and not too small. You just gotta learn how to hold it and how to curl your hair. Watch how your hairdresser does it, the way you love it and emulate! That’s my 2 cents.

Don’t let the price fool you!

This curling iron is magnificent! I thought it would just be a lil cheap iron to use on the side but boy was I wrong. This iron worked so well I used it on a recent photoshoot and it did not let me down. The barrel is a very quality ceramic & it heats up very quickly. Very happy with this purchase.

I like con air better

I bought this for travel because it got good reviews. It is light weight and no frills and di will probably only use it as a back up or to leave at the beach house. Like con air much better then this.

Far Exceeded My Expectations!!!!!

I’ve done a lot of shopping with Amazon over the last few years, and this by far is the BEST purchase I ever made. I knew I needed a new flat iron so I started looking stores and on other websites. I was going to purchase a Chi from a beauty website when I decided to check out the selection on Amazon. The first thing that got my attention (besides the price) was the rave 1,000+ reviews for this product. I decided then that my search ended and I was going to purchase the HSI from Blue Novelties. Thank you, thank you, thank you! My hair is long and it can take forever to straighten but with this gorgeous iron, it takes no time at all. Please, do not let the price fool you, this is a superior quality product and you will not regret your purchase! Thank you so much Blue Novelties & Amazon!!!

i have ordered 3 of these sets

Like i said i have ordered 3 of these sets, first set was broken and it was kind of a hassle getting it returned. I just wanted to trade it for a not broken one but they didnt do that they said i needed to return and reorder. However the price had went up so i didnt want to pay more for a product that was broken when i got it. i contacted Amazon and they took care of it no problem and refunded me the difference in price. My new one came and i loved it enough to order another on for my sister, this one came and had appeared to be used and was missing the bottle of oil it comes with.Product gets 4 or 5 starscompany gets 1 starAmazon gets 5 stars

This works for my fine hair

I have very fine hair. I’ve tried volume shampoos, colorants, perms, texturizing haircuts, mousse, you name it. Those work, but so does this (and quite well I might add). I use it to give volume to the roots in between hair treatments. Am on Amazon buying a second one for my travel case right now. : )PS it gets SO hot your hair doesn’t have to be all the way dry. Nice.PPS. I also recommend Helen of Troy professional curling irons if you have fine hair. I thought they were all the same until I tried my friend’s. They get to like 450 degrees F, but make sure you get the PROFESSIONAL GOLD series from a Sally’s Beauty Supply. The lesser ones, available on Amazon, not so good.

totally worthless

I am debating whether or not to return this utterly worthless item. It adds such minimal volume compared to literally any other method (blow dry hair up-side-down, hair spray the wrong side while brushing against the direction hair grows, teasing, extensions, etc), that this method is not worth the money for a new product or the space it will take in your shelves.Does it get hot enough? Yes.Does it crimp your hair at the roots? A little. Not enough to create any noticeable change.Stupid concept poorly executed. Try literally Anything else.

Lasting volume

I think this works really well, and takes a very short time to heat up,inexpensive, and easy to use. It gives just enough volume (not bump its, or beauty pageant style, lol) and it stays like that all day, and takes about 2 seconds to do. I use it under the top layers of my hair near the crown, and it doesn’t show at all. The only time I saw a “crimp” look is when I did it too close to the top layer of hair, and it showed through. Also, I noticed even then that it didn’t show on my brunette hair, but it did show up on my highlighted parts.It works well on me because my hair is pretty thick, and needs volume because it is heavy and straightened. I would think that if you have thinner hair you may need to be extra carefull of the placement of the crimps to make sure it doesn’t show through, but it is worth it to give it a try if you want volume that lasts, and doesn’t fall flat.

One of my favorite new curling irons!

I have an enzo milano 25mm and I love it. I wanted a 13mm for awhile, but I was little apprehensive because I thought it would create really tight curls. I decided to go with a Herstyler instead of an enzo because of the price.I was pleasantly surprised by this iron. This iron can create really tight curls, but it can also create beautiful waves and loose curls. The curls lasts all day.My only complaint is that I wish the iron had a on/off light indicator.Otherwise, I love this iron!

Best curling iron ever

My roommate had this curling iron and when she moved I was so utterly heartbroken, not because she left but because she took it with her that I had to buy one asap. It makes the most perfect curls as long as you practice with it and figure out the correct amount of hair to use for your hair type – too little and you have frizzy curls and too much and it doesn’t curl completely. The only drawback I can see to this is that the glove is way too large (and I have large hands) so you have to use your fingers and that can lead to some burning.Some nice things about the rod are one, it doesn’t an arm on the rod so you don’t have those unsightly shelves that can be caused by the curling iron arm. Another is you can create barrel curls as well as spiral curls by just adjusting how you lay out your hair. The final thing I appreciate is how fast it works. it heats up in about a minute and for curling, if you’re using a small piece, it’s done in about 10 seconds.I highly recommend this product.

I adore this – easy for tomboys!

I am not a girly girl at all. I wish I was, but I have never seen the value in investing great amounts of time in hairstyling when I could be doing more productive and pleasurable, such as sleeping later in the mornings. Usually I just wash, condition, dry, and I’m on my way, the most effort I put into my hair is pulling it up into a ponytail or making one of those nifty buns with an office pen stuck in the back, so I look studious.Lately though, I’ve wanted to play around with my hair more often, and was toying with the idea of a perm. My best friend/stylist suggested that I try using a curling iron first, to see if I liked the idea. I bought many standard curling irons – I have like 5 now, languishing in my junk drawer – but never had any luck. My hair would not hold a curl regardless of the amount of product I used. I finally had my friend come over and try as well, but even with her expertise and professional tools, my hair is so fine it would only limply hold curls, and looked pretty pathetic.So, I figured I’d try one last time. I spent quite a bit of time on Amazon reading reviews, watching tutorials on Youtube, etc, and finally decided on the HerStyler. My main deciding factor – I could get it in purple.I am SO glad I got it, as well! Used prime shipping, so of course it was at my door in two days. I immediately began playing with it, and was shocked when I was able to create beautiful soft tendrils WITHOUT product in my hair. And they stayed until I washed my hair the next morning. It’s an awesome way for someone to quickly do their hair – I just put a few messy beachy looking curls in and call it good. It looks amazing, my hair is shinier than ever, and it barely takes any time.My only complaint about the HerStyler is the glove. It’s not heat resistant at all, I found myself burning my fingers by the time I’d done about 3/4 of my head. I ended up using an Ov-Glove, and while ugly, it works much better.

Amazing!

I absolutely love this product. I have very thick, long hair that is somewhat on the more coarse side. I’ve tried the tapered curling wands and always end up looking like Shirley Temple after she stuck her finger in the light socket. This waving wand is the solution I’ve been looking for. I can finally wear my hair curly without looking ridiculous. Whenever I use it I get so many compliments and people always want to know what I used. Remington makes great products at a very reasonable price and this is no exception. It’s my favorite hair styling tool at the moment.

Works great!

My hair is notoriously bad at holding a curl. This wand gets the job done though! If I curl it in the morning without combing out and allowing the curls to naturally fall it lasts all day. The major plus of this wand is it’s NOT tapered. So your hair doesn’t slip and evenly curls.

Don’t quite get the elliptical shape-leaves creases!

I don’t know if I’m using it wrong (not sure how I could) but it tends to leave weird creases in my hair because of the elliptical shape. I don’t really see the point and would just recommend a normal wand. I do like the temperature option and it heats up quickly. But I’ve used it twice and that’s probably all I ever will.

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.

not for shoulder length baby fine hair

What a cute idea. What a nice looking product out of the box. The packing materials could be improved upon.BUT…does it work? I was so excited to try this teardrop shape out and here’s what I got.Weird resulting hair. I wrapped my hair around the barrel as instructed and I got a resulting tangled up mess. I’ve never used a curling iron without a clip, so I tried it again and again. I even watched YouTube videos and alas….this curling teardrop shaped iron does nothing for my hair. My hair is shoulder length. I did notice that the girls using this curling iron with success had extremely long hair….halfway down their backs and it wasn’t layered. This made my hair just shoot out from the scalp in crazy mix-matched ways. It made me look like a crazy old lady. I think you need hair long enough to wind around the rod 7 or 8 times. Mine goes around 3 or 4…and the result is a squished piece of matted hair.(and hey…the instructions say to adjust the heat…but HEY you can’t. There is no heat adjustment!! The glove does work to ward away heat but you can’t hold your fingers against the iron for very long even with the glove on) The packing materials could be improved upon. The wand is removable and you can use the base and attach different attachments sold by Remington. Why not just sell the item with several different wand choices?? Perhaps I just need a different wand…but hey who’s going to purchase another attachment on pure hope that that’s the problem?

Finally! Natural waves!

Clarification: This wand does not make three different curls with the included teardrop barrel shape – you must purchase the two additional barrels (a small barrel and a large clip barrel). This review is for the included teardrop barrel and not the two optional barrels.I have thick, fine blonde hair and getting that I-just-woke-up-like-this type of wave in my hair is near impossible. I either end up with prom-like corkscrew curls or no curl at all. I’ve tried all kinds of wands, from tapered barrels, to hot rollers to twisting the hair before curling it. Something about this teardrop barrel shape does the trick and gives me gorgeous, loose, natural-looking waves.In the box comes the handle, with a swivel cord (love) and an attached teardrop-shaped barrel. You can purchase additional barrels, but since I was looking for the natural wave, this one was all I needed. There is no heat setting – just on and off, and this thing gets hot. It didn’t burn my hair and yet it did get a good shape into my hair.Also included is a glove to protect your hand, although it looks like a cotton or cotton blend and really doesn’t do that much to protect your hand. It will protect you from a quick touch but it won’t protect you from prolonged contact.The barrel heats up quickly, is easy to use – just wrap your hair around the barrel and hold – and feels well made. If you want that lovely natural wave, this is your curling iron.

I have been told by my hairdresser that high heat is horrible for my permed/colored hair

It heats up well, but not as hot as I’m used to. However, I have been told by my hairdresser that high heat is horrible for my permed/colored hair. Also, I’ve had super hot wands in the past that were a fire hazard. One actually melted at the tip and had I not been there it could’ve been a disaster. I have no such anxiety about this wand. It is shaped perfectly, holds my shoulder length hair in a comfortable grip that does not tangle when released. Black is a rather dull color, but I’m sure they will offer other colors if they don’t already. A glove is included so you can touch the wand without burns. The barrel shaped end is easy to make the wave style curls and quite fun to use. They also include tips in the instruction sheet on how to make other style curls. The wand is very thick and a hard plastic that I don’t think will crack easily if dropped. I may find out later on since I have trouble in that area. The little stand on the bottom keeps it up off the counter. I also love the tiny book with photos of different curls they have attached to the cord. I’ve only had it a few weeks, so I will write an update in the comments section after a few months as to how it is holding up to all the use.

Wonderful styling tool!!

I recently purchased this curling iron at a mega-discount store while shopping for groceries. It was an impulse purchase. My usual pattern is to first check out reviews before I buy many new items. In that particular case, I am very, very glad that I did not check out the reviews first, because they would have prevented me from making this purchase! I’ll never understand all the negative reviews here. Perhaps Revlon has updated this curling iron, and worked out all the bugs that reviewers are talking about.However, my experience is that this is a great product. First of all, it heats up immediately. It has a GREAT hold on the hair, so that it does not slip out of the iron as you work with it. That is a huge bonus for me. It helped me do my hair in half the time.If I am not doing anything special, I look for the easiest ways to do my hair without finishing up looking unkempt. With the Revlon Perfect Heat Professional Styling Iron, I was able to fluff-dry my hair (without the pulling of a styling brush) and finish off by taking several sections with the iron, letting them cool, and PRESTO — my hair was done. I used a head band, back-combed the crown a bit and my hair fell into jumbo curls and waves without a too-poofy look.You can’t ask for better than this.

Did absolutely nothing for my hair

I have been using the YouCurl wand (Conair) for over a year, and have loved it! Now my hair has gotten longer and so the diameter of my YouCurl created much tighter curls than I like, so I was simply trying to buy a similar product but of wider diameter, but this is obviously not the right choice:1) Using the base clip is not very intuitive, maybe its just me, but I couldn’t figure out how to use the clip and twist my hair around it properly quickly enough (I’m sure if I spent some time on it, it would have been OK, but who has time to spend trying to "train" on using a curling iron?!)2) The spirals are purely decorative I think, there is almost no way for your hair to neatly fall between the spirals, so it just wraps around and over them, which in itself is no big deal, only it means they really don’t have any purpose other than to make it look more gadgety.3) The heat adjustment knob has no numbers on it (yes, really, no numbers!) so there is no way for you to know what setting you are using, what temperature you are on, and if you happen to hit the right temperature by coincidence, there is no way you can replicate that experience next time4) Even when turning the dial to the maximum (at least I think its the maximum, again since there are no labels on the dial), the wand never got hot enough to actually create any curls.This is the second wider wand that I have tried and both were terrible (the other one was the Remington Keratin infused wand, which was only a minor improvement from this one).I will just buy another larger sized Conair model (the original model that worked perfectly for me for 2 years doesn’t seem to have a large enough size, so I have to try a different model from the same manufacturer) lets hope that it works as well as the original!

Once you have it, you can’t do without it

This is one of those things that I didn’t even know I needed, but I did. It never moves or tips over, and holds small to large curling irons. Even my Chi 1 1/2 inch curling iron fits, because it is tapered at the end, but that is as big as I would use it with. If you have a larger one, get the model designed for a blow dryer and you’re set. The best part is, and I repeat, it never moves around or tips over. It is very stable and strong.

Great, except for the base

I use this product a lot, and it works great!! It securely holds the different sized curling rods that I use, and keeps them from burning anything. Also, the metal feels very sturdy, and easily stays up right.The only reason I did not give this product 5 stars was because of the base. I set my straightener on the base the first time I used this, and it almost instantly melted the plastic that covers the bottom, which did not impress me. I was hoping I could use it for my straightener and my rods, but I can only use it for the rods. I had to think about whether or not to take a star off for this, since this is for curling irons/rods, and not for straighteners. In the end, decided to give 4 stars, because I think that the base is a flaw in the design. What if you just absent-mindedly set your curling iron down and it burns the plastic? That can easily happen! Also, the base is pretty big, and I think any normal person would think it’s ok to set something down on it. I also did not see a warning for the base. Maybe it was in there, but I did not notice it.That being said, as long as you are using this ONLY for something that fits inside the spiral, this product is perfect, and I would buy it again if I ever lost this one!

Medium length hair – not so great

This curling device is a little tricky to figure out at first. Watching the video and then putting yourself in front of the mirror can be a real test in dexterity! It heats up fast and is quite light weight. I was worried about it tipping forward onto the barrels (and burning my counter) but there are little stands on the barrel tips to keep that from happening.I have medium thick semi-fine hair that’s just past shoulder length and I can not use this (both barrels) for most of my hair or it comes out looking like I have bad bed-head. I end up wrapping my hair around one of the barrels instead, which pretty much defeats the purpose entirely! On the longer sections in the back I can use both barrels and it creates a wave that has sharp edges at first, and then relaxes (but without a strong styling product it looks sloppy). I use CHI protectant because this is very hot and potentially damaging. One more thing – the glove takes a little getting used to and is large. For anyone wondering, the outside measurement across the 2 barrels is about 2 1/8th inches, with approx 3/4 inch gap in between.

Takes getting used to, but overall a nice styler

Overall I really like this product. I have wanted a curling wand for several months but never had the money for the brand I was eyeing, this is a decent substitute. I have layered hair that is maybe 3 inches passed the top of my shoulders. I didn’t have any problems with using this and I also don’t style my hair very often so it isn’t that I’m a pro already. I didn’t like the look of my hair after weaving it around both rods so I just use one instead and it came out great, though it took some getting used to having to bypass the second rod. I added a picture. I will definitely use this on a regular basis. I love the body it gives my hair. I have color-treated straight fine hair that doesn’t hold much of a curl after the first hour, but the style I created actually stayed in my hair all evening and night, until bed. It took about 20-25 minutes the first time to do my entire head. I am right handed thus hold the styler with my right hand and it makes curling the right side of my head a little more cumbersome.
