I really really wanted to like the hot tools curling iron since I heard and read and even watched make up gurus use these irons but it was horrible!! I tried the 1.5 inch and the curl didn't even last an hour. I put it on a high setting and hair sprayed the crap out of my hair and it still went limp/turned straight in less than an hour! I definitely have hard to curl hair but I have used cheaper curling irons before that worked the same way and even better! I think ceramic irons seem to work better with my hair so I guess that could be the problem...my curls only looked good for two minutes and it wasn't worth burning my hair for :(

i got this in a 2" so i could smooth out my hair and add a slight bend so it was not so stick straight like a flat iron. this works well, heats up super fast, and does a wonderful job very quickly. i love it.

I have tried a lot of curling irons, including Chi, Conair, Jilberte and many others. Chi was okay but I think it was too much money and it took too long to warm up. The main issue with Conair and Jilberte from Sally's was that after a while, they start causing hair breakage. If you look at Chi and this iron, you notice an extra coating which looks like paint. On Chi's barrell, it is solid yellow and on these, it is solid purple. My experience tells me that this extra coating prevents hair breakage and makes a lot of difference. Gold and other metal barrells without the extra coating hold curls very well but at the end, they cause severe hair breakage so I do not recommend them at all. The curls with Hot Tools and Chi may not last a long time but here is how you can prolong it: After using the curling process with the iron, turn your head upside down and apply a hairspray. This is much better than damaging your hair.

This doesnt hold the curl. After 1 hour, my curls fall out making my hair string-y looking.

i've used hot tool curling irons for over 10 years and few years ago i've bought the purple one which is the ceramic version and it is awesome! it curls my hair very quicky and efficiently, the curls stay throughout the day and most of all, my hair feels smooth, not burned or damaged. i have 1 1/4 inch and 1 inch and i plan to buy 1.5 inch soon.

I was so excited to get this curling iron after research on ceramic titanium vs. the 24 gold plated. I curled my hair this morning and by the time I got to work it was deflated and straight! I've never had this happen before so I was very shocked and sad. I've used Conair, Revlon and CHI irons; they've all worked. I've heard ceramic does not hold curls well, but my CHI is ceramic and it did wonders. I curled my hair again once I got home to see if I needed to turn the heat higher. The curls did hold for an hour but are deflating again. =( I will have to return this one. Hopefully the24k gold plated Hot Tools works!

I remember my friend did my hair and she had used a Hot Tools curling iron. I don't remember if she had the same one as me or not, but I loved the results! Usually my hair doesn't stay curled very long ( I have really straight hair) but with this, it lasted quite some time! I knew I had to go out and get a Hot Tools curler.
I got the 3/4 inch curler and I have absolutely LOVED IT! It heats up really fast, with adjustable temperature settings! The curls I get with this at first are really curly, but they loosen up and I love them! I did my friends' hair with this curler as well, and it beats other curlers that I have used. I have 2 conair curlers, and I don't use them anymore. I have had this one for almost a year and it still works very well <3

I have three of these curling irons in different sizes and I really dislike them. I have had other people use them as well and they also said that this curling iron was "just okay." To me, it is the equivalent of a $20 curling iron that you can find at the drugstore.

I got my first one and after 3 months (not daily use) the purple coating was wearing off considerably on the inside of the clamp and on the barrel. I got it replaced for the cost of a warranty replacement (about $10). Now my second one is also having the same problem. Either my hair is really weird and therefore damaging the coating, or ... ?
I will not repurchase. I shouldn't have to buy two curling irons per year!

I have had this for about a year and it works very well. It is a little hard to handle at first, but after you have a little practice it's fine. It's very easy to burn yourself because the top of it isn't covered so it gets as hot as the rest of it - so be VERY careful!! It is very high quality and works great every time. :) :) :) :) :) :)

I own a 1 1/4 inch and it gave really nice looking waves. Problem is that they don't last very long=/. I love the fact that it has a heat dial. The design is great. It heats up and has constant heat. I also love the swivel cord feature. For the price it's amazing,but i'll probably have to try a different method of trying to curl my hair since when i curl with this they don't seem to last too long.

Positively the best curling iron ever. My hair is fine and pencil straight....it just doesn't curl. After my hair stylist reccommended I try the ceramic Hot Tools curling iron, I did some research and shoveled out the $50 for this hot lil gadget. Best investment. I bought the 3/4 inch and get amazing ringlets that lasts all day (even in humidity). The temp dial is a great versatililty for different hair types. I will recommend this to everyone!

I purchased the purple marcel type hot tools curling iron.......I am so in love with this iron!!!!!!!!!!! It gives me beautiful curls that last all day. It has a temperature dail to set it at any heat you want.....it gets super hot super fast.
This is the first marcel type of iron I have had but it was not difficult to use at all!!
I will never live without this iron again.....I will get another if this one ever dies :)

I love my hot tools curling iron. I plan on buying a smaller one too but this is perfect for my long hair. Its very easy to create the whole supermodel beachy hair thing with this. The iron gets pretty hot which is nice and it stays hot. I like this and I would definitely purchase more sizes.

Ohhh my goodness. I am head over heels in love with this curling iron. I ordered it from folica.com and got it for $30ish I believe, since it was on sale when I bought it. Now, a year later, it's still in mint condition and still heats up right when I plug it in. It gives my fine hair lots of volume and curls it to perfection. I love the long cord and how I can adjust the temperature settings because that's an important feature to have on a hair appliance. It's good to be able to control the amount of heat you put on your hair, right? My curls last all day long too, with the help of any old hairspray. I'd repurchase again and again. Hot Tools curling irons work JUST as good as the high-end brand names.

I thought that Ceramic was supposed to be good for my hair....this curling iron rips my hair when i am trying to smooth it out and curl it at the end. I will try the gold one to see if that works better!

Wow a curling iron that actually curls hair and leaves it that way! I have used tons of curling irons in the past and I have to agree this is by far the best one I have used. It gets really hot really quick and leaves hair shiny and bouncy. Plus I managed to find mine at a TJ Maxx for just $19 (about half the price of what it normally cost)

This is the best curling iron I've ever purchased! I used it yesterday for the first time and my curls came out great and lasted all day without hairspray, great styling tool!

The Hot Tools Ceramic Curling Irons don't work well on my fine, highlighted hair. They just don't pull through smoothly... the ceramic more or less "jerks" through my hair. I know ceramic is better for my hair, but the pulling has the opposite effect.
So I exchanged the ceramic version for the regular Hot Tools Curling Irons (gold metal in color). They grip my hair well and pull through smoothly, heat up fast, and get super hot. Lots of temperature settings, which is nice. Swivel cord also makes the irons very easy to use... not too heavy either (I use my 1 1/2 all the time) I do wish they had an automatic shut-off though!

This is an excellent product. My friend who is a stylist told me to get one at Ulta since we had a sale for 18 bucks and on every size. I'm glag I listened to him because this thing has pro quality and heats up up to 430 deg. in 20 secs. It really curls nicely and quickly.
