Rated 3 out of 5 by Traveler72 Worth the price, but just a basic curling wand
I've been looking at this curling wand for a few weeks now and I finally decided to go ahead and get it. The only thing that has held me back in the past is that I've been wanting a curling wand with a larger barrel so I could get bigger curls/waves in my hair, such as 1 1/4 inch or 1 1/2 inch. I gave this a try to see if maybe the 1 inch would suffice. It did not, the curls are still beautiful and just what I expected, but I hoped that maybe the straight barrel would at least give a different look than the tapered barrel that I already had. The only difference between the two is that the straight barrel gave a little looser look to the curls, while the tapered gives the very tight uniform curls...like most other curling wands you see. The ribbon barrel gave a very similar look to the tapered barrel, there really wasn't a huge difference between the two.
The biggest oddity is that when I started using this wand, it started to release a burning chemical-type smell. I am no stranger to curling wands and the only product I had in was a heat protectant that I always use, and I had never before smelled this. Which, in all reality is a very minor issue.
Other reviews have talked about how difficult it is to change the barrels. I personally had no problems with it. You cannot change them while they're still hot unless you put the iron inside the heat resistant case included, and even then it's a little iffy. Changing the barrel while it's cold is as simple as twisting the red knob and pulling the barrel off. Putting another on is about the same thing, push the barrel on while twisting the red knob to secure it. I didn't have any difficulty there.
All in all, I am not sure yet if I will be keeping this wand. It is very good quality and if you're just looking for a basic wand that you can sometimes add small changes to your hair with, then this is the wand for you. If you're like me and want something that can give big, bold waves...you might want to look around at some other options.

I love these wand curlers only thing is, it's so difficult to get in and out... You almost feel like your going to break it!

I was so disappointed to find it had no clamp to hold the hair.. I burned myself several times trying to use it.. it definitely does not work for what I want it for..
I am taking it back to Sally's store or sending back to website. but I cannot use this...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Meggy45 Amazing!
I absolutely love this! It heats up really fast and curls fast, produces a really nice curl and is super easy to put away and doesn't take up a lot of space since it has a travel bag. So glad I decided to go with this product. Best curling tool I've gotten so far! I recommend anyone who wants a nice curl and doesn't like having tons of curlers of different sizes to go with this one.
