Review: Flat Iron Experts - Hot Tools 1" Curling Iron

 
I am in love with Flat Iron Experts! I actually did a review back in July of 2010, for their super cute Mini KQC Travel Flat Iron, and I loved it - So I couldn't wait to try another amazing product from them.

This time, I was able to choose between a flat iron, or a curling iron, and since I tried a flat iron last time, I thought this would be a perfect opportunity to try something new; So I chose the curling iron.

For my review I received the Hot Tools Professional Spring Curling Iron (1")
 My results with the Hot Tools Curling Iron, were amazing!
I can honestly say, that I have only curled my hair, maybe 5 times. We used to have a curling iron when I was younger, and my aunt would always come over and style it, for fun. As an adult, I've actually only used one, one time, on myself, and it was quite some time ago.
I've always been so "plain jane" with my hair; But now that I have a curling iron of my own, I plan on trying to style more :)

Normally, my hair is really straight (sometimes it has a wave, but I usually only get the wave, because I sleep on my hair wet, lol) I washed my hour about 2 hours before trying out the curling iron, so when I used it, my hair was really straight.
  (Don't mind my split ends :p!)

Using the curling iron was so easy! Simply wrap your hair around
 
and wait for about 30 seconds, or longer  (The longer you hold it, the more bouncy your curl.) Then release, and you have gorgeous curls!



I curled all of my hair, and it ended up taking about 20-30 minutes ( I have really long hair!)
  
 I think the results were really beautiful!
And one of my favorite things, is that afterward (not right afterwards, but about an hour later) I decided I wanted to put my hair up. After brushing it, and putting it into a pony tail (I didn't use any hair spray) I still had some curl. I thought the curl would almost completely go away, and it didn't!
 I absolutely loved the Hot Tools Curling Iron, and I would recommend it to anyone! 
Some of it's features include: 
  • Patented Pulse Technology® for Gets Hot. Stays Hot performance
  • 85 watts
  • Variable heat settings with built-in rheostat control up to 430 degrees
  • Fast heat up
  • Soft-Grip textured handle
  • Powerful spring clamp
  • Extra-high heat
  • 24K gold - plated barrel
  • Heavy-duty long-life heating element
  • Foldaway safety stand
  • Pilot light
  • 8-foot professional cord
  • On / Off switch
  • Solid-state circuitry
  • AC 110V 60Hz for use in USA/Canada
  • One year warranty
So, as you can see, it has great features, and great results. 

I was also sent the  Flat Iron Experts Iron Holder
 
 The iron holder is a great safety precaution tool. It has 4 suction cups on the bottom, so you don't have to worry about your tool falling out. 

And I also received the KQC Thermal Shine Spray.
 This spray is great! It helps to reduce frizz, and helps boost shine. I loved the results. 

Overall, I was extremely happy with all of the great products I received from Flat Iron Experts!

  1. This looks a great curler with great results, I need one because my hair, though wavy, has a hard time holding curl. But, it seems to have held it on you without hair spray. Awesome!

  2. Thanks for the recommendation. My girls hair is already curly but I'd love a flat iron. Your hair is beautiful! I'd be interested to see if it stays curly in my hair as curls never do.
