First of all, I'm not sure if I'm reviewing the same product. The implement that I have has "Hot Tools" stamped on the barrel. I believe this is a Helen of Troy product. I purchased mine at Ulta at a discounted price. It was the last one in stock. Hopefully that doesn't mean it's been discontinued.
Now, what to stay about this stying tool? I love it and yet it could be so much better.
What I don't like: The barrel is huge and clunky! I'm still learning how to hold it as to eliminate accidently changing the heat setting or turning it off unintentionally.
But yet there are so many features that I love: Swivel cord, ion off/on switch, cool shot option, 2 heat settings, 1000watts of power, easy curl release with retracting, tangle free, ball tipped bristles, 1-1/4 inch barrel which detaches for storage and the plastic tip at the end of the barrel stays cool to the touch to aid styling. I've never mastered the two handed round brush/ hair dryer tango (I need at the very least one more hand for this operation, thank you very much.)
And since this hot air brush lets a klutz like me achieve a salon look with a minimum of fuss, heck yes I would definitely repurchase!

Just got this at the recommendation of my new, amazing stylist. It's about $26 - very reasonable! And - I love it. I have straight, black, thick hair (no color, no perm) that requires some help after showers to give definition to the layers that are cut into it. I also have dry and somewhat damaged hair, which is not good, but because of that, I needed something that wasn't going to fry the hair or pull at it, causing even more breakage. This is perfect - obviates the need for a brush, gives just the right amount of styling help without burning or breaking my hair. Going to get rid of my brush. My hair is very slightly damp when I'm done, which is exactly what I want.

Sigh. Another trip to ulta to return this. I don't know if my hair is too thin, but it didn't really create a great curl on my hair..and it definitely didn't dry it, even though I used a blow dryer first until my hair was just slightly damp. Back it goes...good thing gas is so cheap these days (ahem)

The previous reviewer said it well. I was given this item so I don't know about price and packaging (that's why I rated them average). I LOVE this hot air iron. It adds so much lift to my roots and makes it easy to define the shape of my haircut so that it flatters the contours of my face. It gives such a natural look with a lot of body and it's easy to use for someone who is clumsy with a brush and blow dryer like me. I use it when my hair is 3/4 air dried to finish my style.

It's not a curling iron, it's not a blow dryer -- what is this? It's an INCREDIBLE, fantastic, can't live without it styling tool! It is like a curling iron, but is like a round brush, and hot air blows through it. It comes in different barrel sizes. I've had the exact same one for years and years, and it hasn't given up on me yet. I use this every single day. I blow dry my hair first, then use this on my bangs (not to curl them, exactly, but "fluff" them and take the ragged edges away), or to curl hair over or under or around the face, and can even straighten some. If I didn't wash my hair in the morning, this is great for fixing "bed head". This is a definite *must have* in my book -- I couldn't live without mine!
