It really does the job and makes beautiful lasting curls but there are 2 things I don't like about it. My hair catches in the crease of the tip sometimes when I release the curl and the base where the electric cord attaches to the wand is bulky and doesn't sit right on the counter making it want to fall off of the counter sometimes.
I can not believe how fast this curler works. I have long, straight, hard to hold hair and this curler gives a natural looking curl or wave that lasts for days. I didn't even use a hair spray to hold which has never happened for me before.
