I’ve gone through so many curling irons, it’s actually disgusting. I’m so glad I found hot tools!! It is by far my favorite curling iron and it actually makes my hair stay curly/wavy. I normally have Asian straight hair so looking for ways to change my hairstyle is a must. In comes in Hot Tools! This has changed my life and it honestly doesn’t take me an hour to curl my hair anymore. It cut my curling time in half and the CURLS STAY. I normally don’t put any products to keep my hair curled so depending on your hair type you may or may not need it ...read more

I must admit that at first I was super nervous because this purchase was my first curling wand ever. My sister left it to me to do her hair for her dance and it could have either went really well with her hair or really badly because we have thick and very textured and frizzy hair. However, I thought let’s do a few test runs before the big day and what she requested were “loose curls.” Luckily, this wand has several setting for several hair types and one was “thick hard to style hair” to cut it short, this was the best wand ever and I’m so happy that I purchased it. ...read more

I wanted a new curling iron since the old one I loved for so many years finally died; it was a 2" iron, with a dull metal & was AMAZING at getting those gorgeous Victoria's Secret model waves. Well, since I didn't have that miracle iron anymore, I'd been using a tiny 1" iron that gave me small, tighter curls & made me miss the big, loose curls I was used to. After searching high & low for a great iron, my choice came down to this & the other 2" barrel iron. Since it would be my first time trying this brand, I decided to go for this slightly more inexpensive, slightly smaller barrel & I couldn't be happier!

My hair is about 4 inches past my shoulders and VERY thick, so I turned the heating dial between 330-380 degrees and it's perfect. I think I could even go to a lower temperature next time to achieve loose waves. This is the perfect iron for me & it will definitely be a great replacement as my go-to curling hair tool.

I've attached a photo to show how great it worked for me! Hopefully, I could help those of you out there who are unsure of purchasing this iron. ...read more

Sent my husband to the store to get a “curling wand” because my old one had broke and I needed a new one ASAP for a wedding. He went to Fred Meyer and I honestly had NO IDEA what he was going to come back with LOL but he said the lady there told him that was the best one for the price. I ended up falling in love with this! I have really long hair and I curled my hair in 15 minutes( I know right?!) I love the wavy look I got and it lasted all night. It was about 30 bucks and is so worth it for the quality ...read more

I love NuMe hair products, I’ve had one of their straighteners since before they became popular and when they offered them for $20. It’s still going strong and it’s my all time favorite. Anyway, when I saw this multi curling set, I had to get them. They all work so well, are easy to use if you have experience with curling wands, but if not, it’s easy to learn and these give you so many styling options. I use it on lower heat, hold my hair around the wand for maybe 5-6 seconds and it’s completely curled, as easy as that. And I love that there is no weird burning smell, that’s been a problem before. This has replaced all of my other curling irons or wands and I’m not looking back! ...read more
