I had worked with marcel irons before so I decided to try this one by Hot Tools. Cool color but difficult to control. Curls did not last. Tip too hot to the touch so unable to use the assistance of other hand to control curl on the iron. Handle is marcel so it swivels and constantly moving. Just too awkward to keep so I had to return it. Make sure you are almost a pro at working with marcel handles before purchasing this iron.
i know the curlers say marcel curling irons but the picture provided are not marcel curling irons so i thought i was going to get regular curlers like the picture, well i was wrong. If you do not know how to use marcel curlers i suggest you do not buy these as they are a little difficult to work. (thank goodness i used marcel’s before) also i paid for 2day shipping and it came in 3days. There is a way to lock the handel so it won’t be so loose if that helps. and they claim they get hot fast but it seemed to take a while to heat up to me. These are really for professionals or people that know how to use marcel curling irons. They should take that picture down and put the actual curlers that you will get once purchased because this is false advertising in a way.
Big & clumsy for adding few curls on top.
Love marcel irons, but this was clumsy. Good company and product, but not for me for adding more define curls to my natural long waves. Still looking for that perfect tool that gets results fast with no long time effort.
My hairstylist uses one of these on me, and got great results, so I wanted to try one without spending a fortune on a more expensive brand. Before I ordered it I watched a couple youtube tutorials and felt that I could manage. I read some reviews and picked this one. I get a better, fuller curl with this, but still find it does take longer than a clip curling iron. I have to use both hands, since I still can’t figure out how to maneuver with one hand, but I think I will get better with time.
Curls that last, loose or tight.
This is my 1st Marcel iron… Never even heard of them before. I knew I could not do the professional "flat iron as curling iron" trick but saw a YouTube on using Marcel and decided to give it a try. Traditional irons fry my ends before they deliver any heat to set a style in the rest of my length. Because Marcel works in reverse (start at roots instead of ends) I got MUCH better results. I’ve also tested various tools and determined "tourmaline" truly makes a difference in reducing frizz.
Great Curling Iron
For anyone out there that is used to marcel curling irons you’ll know they are somewhat hard to find. If you are not used to marcels there is a learning curve and it may be frustrating to get used to. I got my first curling iron over 20 years ago and it was a marcel, so the clippy kind of irons feel like they are pulling out my hair. This iron is smooth and heats up very quickly. The handle rotates, but has a lock if you prefer it to stay in place. I think I only gave it 4 stars because I have liked other marcel irons I have had in the past better, but this one is definately a good one too. Overall I am very happy with this purchase.
Great Tool for straightening and curling African American 4B Hair
I decided to buy one of these as an alternative to the flat iron while on the road and in between washings as a way to touch up my edges while wearing straight hair styles. It does the trick because you can straighten and curl your hair with one tool. Be careful because it does get hot and just like the flat iron you can eventually break your hair.
