Heats up quickly. Temp guage is in a little akward spot, let's me accidently change temp setting. Otherwise a good curler.
This was a gift from my daughter who bought it to replace one she had given me before. It was also a Conair product---perhaps a 3/4 inch barrel and did not have the ceramic finish. It only lasted a few months and then failed to heat. I really loved it, but had not registered it so it was worthless after a few months. She was concerned about the size of this one as I have short hair. This is not a good choice for short hair. It is slippery and hard to hold the hair. It would be excellent for someone with long hair who likes soft, full curls. I hope it will continue to heat. I am giving it a good rating as it is a nice product, just not great for someone with short, coarse, stubborn hair.
I am very pleased with this products. It is exactly what I wanted in a curling iron.
I purchased a different ceramic curling at another local retailer. Well, shame on me....I should have known better because after about a week it would only heat up sometimes. Needless to say after about two weeks it quit heating entirely., which created an emergency as I was getting ready for a big night out. My hair is stick straight and couldn't go that way. So, I went to my local K Mart and purchased the Conair Double Ceramic 1 " curling iron. Upon returning home, I got right to using it and my hair looked fantastic. Smooth lasting curls and no fuzz. I use it everyday. It wasn't on a "Blue Light Special", but a great price, plus there are no flashing red emergency lights any more! BUY IT...IT'LL NEVER LET YOU DOWN.
This curling iron is amazing! I use it on the lowest setting for fine hair and my curls always come out very nice and well formed. Even after taking it out from a clip the curl for the most part still remains. The hook on top should be on every curling iron there is! I just put it on the wall and its out of the way so I can get on with my day :)
