Review - Beauty Stop Online: Hot Tools Ceramic Titanium Curling Iron

I recently has the privilege to work with Beauty Stop Online and review their Hot Tools 1-1/2" Ceramic Titanium Hair Curling Iron. This curling iron has a barrel size of 1 1/2 but also comes in 3/4", 1 3/4" and 2". More info on the curler from the website:
"Hot Tools 1-1/2" Ceramic Titanium Hair Curling Iron is a professional hair curling iron with a powerful patented heating system that keeps it hot, so stylists may work continuously and quickly while still achieving consistent curling results. It features the Ceramic and Titanium technology. Ceramic produces gentle far infrared heat, working from the inside out to seal the cuticle, locking in natural moisture, improving shine, eliminating frizz and styling hair without damage. It also inhibits bacteria and odor buildup. Titanium, a high-tech super hard element, provides lightweight strength & corrosion resistance for snag-free styling and even heat distribution. This hair curling iron is excellent for styles of any length."
When i received it I immediately had to have a test run. I turned it on and left my vanity room for about 1 min, came back to find it was at its set temperature of 430° F by my return. My hair at the time had only Hana ShineShield which is a heat styling serum. I have a full head of hair, dyed and bleached, mid-back length, thick and naturally wavy and straight with some occasional curls. Already hot, I took a couple minutes to part my hair, the top in 5 parts and bottom in 4. I proceeded to curl my hair by leaving each sectioned part about 20 seconds on the extremely hot barrel. It was intentionally a test run but my hair was styled as if I were leaving to a party. The test  run took about a mere 15 minutes to do and it turned out great.

I have, since then, used the curler quite a bit. I have also used it on my baby sister's and my friend's hair. All of them loved the result and the fact that it took such a short time to achieve the curls. I love that there is an extra long rubber tip, it has helped in preventing me to burn myself on several occasions. The only thing I wish were different is the thumb grip. Currently, only the bottom of the thumb grip is covered with rubber, I wish it were all covered. I have accidentally burned my cheek a handful of times because of it.

I absolutely love the style and purple color of the Hot Tool's curler. Without using any products in my hair, after I curl it, they die down in about an hour. If i use hair spray, the curls stay for a good day. I have noticed that after the curls die down, my hair is almost pin straight and looks healthier than I've even seen it before. So its safe to say that this curler, also works as a straightener for me! I no longer have frizz when i curl my hair, I would get it with other curlers I've had.

I have used it for over 2 weeks now and can say that I would have no problem recommending it to friends, which I have already done :) This curler retails for $34.95 - $39.99 (depending on barrel size) on Beauty Stop Online. The website sells all kinds of beauty products like brand name curlers, straighteners, skin, hair and nail care, accessories and more at great prices. I love the large array of products and ease of searching. Shipping was extremely fast as well.  A big thanks to John, from Beauty Stop Online, for the opportunity to review the product and their great store! :) I have so many favorites, I hope you check out their great selection, including:
