I would NOT recommend this to someone who wants a "quick fix" to curl their hair. Although, I watched the video and I thought it would be easy to use, it's actually a LOT harder to use than I expected based on this video. While I have been able to use the "protective finger gloves", it's kind of "dangerous" because it heats up so quickly, and if you are in a hurry (like I am most mornings!), it's probably not the item to use....I have only been "somewhat successful", BUT it takes some real finesse which I don't seem to have before my coffee! I will keep the product, because I think the "price is right".....but it's NOT the easiest item to use, and I would NOT recommend to others.

This wand would work great if not for the fact that when you twist the hair it slips down the barrel. This is especially a problem with longer hair, but I have trouble with it with short hair, too. You can even see this happening to the woman in the video when she curls her hair. no matter what way you use it this presents a problem.
All tapered irons likely are the same, I think. You have to get the technique, amount of hair, and grip *just right* to keep it from cruising off the end of the barrel.
I'm going to keep it, but it frustrates me enough that I rarely use it.
And yeah, the finger glove is useless. Way too clumsy.

Rated 4 out of 5 by ChristiD Love this wand!
The only way I used to be able to keep curls in my hair was by drying them in curlformers, or in a sock bun. With this wand I'm able to curl my whole head (I have long, fine, hair that comes to my mid back) in about 20 mins! The curls will loosen up, but they will last up to 2 days if I don't mess with my hair too much.
The only thing I don't like is the 'glove' it comes with. It only covers a few fingers and it's just an odd design... But I can curl my hair with out the glove.

I love this wand !!! Its my first wand i've always wanted one but didn't wanna pay too much for one. I paid like $26 for it and I'm surprised it worked so well. It heats up pretty quickly to 400 degrees and i have thick hair and it worked really good. For best results straighten your hair first if your hair isn't straight. It doesn't have a stand so you can use a towel to to lay it on it doesn't burn it. I didn't like the finger gloves so i used a regular cotton glove.
