- Sweet operation
- Speedy heating
- Awesome for thick and coarse hair
The plates don’t touch on this (because it makes room for hair without it falling out). Additionally, there’s only a manual shut-off.
You’ll be surprised at how thin this Babyliss flat iron is - and how well it works with coarse, thick hair. It’s a seriously non-snag titanium model (which means you’ll pay a fair amount for it). It heats in about 30 seconds and the heat recovery time is also excellent. And yet, the Ryton housing does a great job at keeping the handle cool.
One reason (besides the brand name and the smooth operation) to chose this model is the variety of heat settings - 50 choices. With this range of temperatures, you can bet this works just as well with thinner hair as it does with thicker and longer do's. Okay, it is expensive, and you will need to remember to switch it off. But, otherwise, this is an incredible 1” flat iron.
Heating speed: 30 seconds
Temperature and controls: A max of 450ºF with 50 different heat settings! (Wow!)
Voltage: American only
Price: The MSRP is $140 and you can expect to pay between $125 and $140. Yes, that makes this one of the more expensive flat irons, but it’s absolutely worth it.
