Conair made a great straightening/curling iron a year ago but they must have discontinuted it. This one does absolutely nothing for curling....straightening is okay but my Chi is much better for that. I wish I could return this one because it will end up sitting in my bathroom drawer unless I get absolutely desperate for a straightener!!
The concept of this straightener/curler is great! However, this model does not heat well and my hair often gets tangled and pulled out in the cracks/joints/where the plates meet the plastic. The structure is great and does curl hair, but without the heat the curls don't stay. All in all, average.
i will start by saying that i am not a girly girl so this doesnt come natural for me...that being said. pros..heats up quickly, curls and straightens hair in one step with a little practice. hair holds well once done. cons...takes a bit of practice to learn how to hold iron to get the look that you want. doesnt have a hanger or stand to sit on to prevent burning counter as both sides do get a bit hot. i would recomment this to a friend and advise to practice prior to needing hair to be perfect. works very well once get the hang of it.
