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")
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!

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!
