Honest reviews



This has a grip and handle not like a “normal” rolling iron you may be use to, and you may find this to be hard or a pain to use, so remember when ordering!! I love this grip and clamp style and the rolling handle makes is so easy to do your own back of head hair with out trying to use 2 mirrors and backwards!! Love love love, gets hot quick, stays on till I am done with it! Wish they had a lock for the open bar part so it didnt flop around when in travel.

Once I found this brand I have never switched .. have used it for years .. have it in just about every size for all the different hair styles I’ve had over the years! You won’t be disappointed .. IF you are comfortable with a Marcel curling iron. Great Product!

Salon Quality

This is a great salon quality curling iron. I love the curls or waves you can make. If you have never used a Marcel Curling iron it is highly recommended, you can learn how by watching you-tube videos. The barrel I purchased was 1 1/2 in. and it is perfect for big bouncy curls. The iron itself heats up quickly and you can adjust the temperature.

Perfect Product

I love this curling iron! It does have a learning curve to understand how the handle works as it twists but overall I am thrilled with this purchase.

Very easy

The easiest curler I have ever had, once got used to rod instead of clip to hold clamp I like it better I used to burn my thumb when in a hurry with small clip on clamps. I am much safer with rod clamp. Does a great job with big full curls

I love this iron. Nothing beats the hot tools marcel iron! The tinier curls are great for holding the curl but be sure to brush them out before you leave the house or else you will look like curly sue

the first Hot Tools marcel that I bought from Amazon had a problem with the rotation mechanism in the handle. I returned it and bought one from a local beauty supply store where they let me test the item before purchase and it worked fine. I think it was just random defect. I like the one I have now just fine.

Don’t grap the tip!

IMPORTANT TIP: Most curling irons have a tip at the end that one can hold onto. THIS DOESN’T!! There are gloves one can buy to use with these Marcel types of curling irons so one doesn’t burn the tips of the fingers. I’m still getting used to it, because I don’t use it every day, but so far, I love the ease and size of this curling iron. I thing a glove or at least 2 finger cots should be in the package for what it costs, but other than that, no complaints so far.

I’ve never used a curling iron like this, it’s not bad but I’m a bit uncoordinated and clumsy so I can’t seem to use it well. I’m still trying!

Doesn’t work

I’m asian and my hair is medium in thickness. My hair uncurls once I get to the other side of my head. I’ve used other ones that were better and lasted me more than one day without any sprays. This one might work for you if you have fine hair.
