Description does not indicate that it is the C styler. Looks less sturdy than other models I have had. In fact, it looks cheap and made me think it was a fake. I figured I'd try it before I return it, and I do like the curved plates. The three stars are only because they do iron as well as other BaByliss flat irons, very hot, with a single or two passes.
Still don't love the handles and that it gets hot. I may just send it straight to babyliss warranty rather than return to groupon as it is no longer listed and my not be able to replace.
