I bought mine from qvc but they are sold out but this little gadget is fabulous!! Had to share; curls without any hassle!

I know it's £££ but so worth it!

For some reason, I watched the video before I saw the price. I thought, ooh, that does look good! Then I saw the price! Fuck me! Does it make me a cup of tea while it's curling my hair, too?!

Why s it better than tongs or rollers? Come on, pink, sell it to me! What length have you got? How thick is it?

Well I usually use ghd's to curl but they require you to really concentrate and keep pressure on the hair and angle it. This curling method could be done with your eyes shut!

You select what type of curl you want and just put the section into the 'chamber' and out comes a perfect curl. If you like wearing curls in your hair it's definitely something to consider!

No good for shorter hair tho

BarbaraWoodlouse Tue 02-Apr-13 21:50:03

Really don't let me buy this! I have GHDs (no longer really used), the Big Hair (great) and the root boost (not so great). I really, really cannot allow myself to be tempted. <weak>

Mmm. I do love having curly hair. But I'm going to have to find it cheaper somehow - that's a very hefty price tag.

My hair is usually just below shoulder length - do we think that would be ok, length-wise?

louse you definitely do want this! You can stand looking all around you whilst curling your hair!! gringringrin

I saw it on eBay for £199! Bit of a mark up I think!

bluebump Tue 02-Apr-13 21:57:10

I so want one if these but I'll have to wait until they come down in price!

shufflebum Tue 02-Apr-13 22:04:49

Wow, video looks amazing!

Pinkflipflop Tue 02-Apr-13 22:32:27

They said on qvc it was good for mid to long hair. I have used it on my shorter layers (chin length) and have been impressed!

BarbaraWoodlouse Tue 02-Apr-13 23:05:23

Well I do like to look around when I do my hair... grin

Looks amazing ! Though I do have lots of gadgets already for curls but none are quite right !

I am so, so tempted. Pinkflipflop - what is the texture of your hair naturally. I have poker straight, fine, long hair and NOTHING I've tried so far curls it effectively. I'm rubbish with using the GHDs to curl and any heated rollers or tongs I've used before either do nothing at all (one random bend if I'm lucky, which falls out 30 minutes later).

Pinkflipflop Wed 03-Apr-13 14:55:22

Well my hair is medium thickness and slightly wavy; I think it would work on fine hair as there are 3 different heat settings on it depending on the thickness of your hair. I find the Ghd's quite tricky to use for curling but what I like about this gizmo is that there is a button you press depending on whether you are doing the right or the left side of your hair. With the Ghd's I can only do it one way so both sides of my hair look different.

There are different settings on this depending on how tight you want the curl. I would honestly say that if this little machine doesn't curl your hair then you just aren't meant to have curls!! grin

would it work on really long hair ? mine is long enough to cover boobs now . maybe too tangly ??

malteserzz Wed 03-Apr-13 15:28:48

I need one ! Can only see them in sale on eBay though £££

Pinkflipflop Wed 03-Apr-13 16:54:15

Would definitely work on longer hair; the girl in the ad for it has really long hair! You will be all loose curled and gorgeous!

CecyHall Wed 03-Apr-13 17:19:45

I really want one, I can use my curling wand as I can't work backwards in the mirror to see what I'm doing, and my ghds are the the wide plated ones so won't curl well.

My DH says that I'll tangle my bar up in it though, is that likely?

CecyHall Wed 03-Apr-13 17:20:03

Hair, not bar

Whitershadeofpale Tue 09-Apr-13 17:17:06
