Advantages: Excellent quality
I know most guys don't use these, but my hair dresser recommended these to me because I get very annoying curls when my hair grows out ( really annoying)?
So reluctantly I bought these, to be fair they are really good. They straightened my curly bits and really helped me out.
--- What do they look like? ---
They look great, and are very stylish. I wouldn't say they are just for girls because the design is mostly black. They do pink ones for girls which my girlfriend has and they look nice too. They are much more stylish than others on the market which makes them stand out above the rest of them
--- cost? ---
They are very expensive though, I reckon you could spend less and get a similar quality. Maybe I am wrong but that is my personal view. I think I paid £99 for my pair, for a girl this would be a good price, but I don't use them enough to warrant the huge cost. A quick look on the web showed me that you can buy other brands of hair straighteners for much less.
--- do they work? ---
They look really good and have been designed well. I was impressed with how quickly they took to heat up! After a few seconds you hear a little bleep to let you know they are ready.
I am rubbish when using them, burnt my head and hands more time than I can remember. Girls probably won't have that issue! If you have short hair you can but a smaller pair which are called mini stylers, wish I bought them instead because these are a little to big.
---- overall ----
Overall the quality is good and they get up to a very high temperature. I find they take an age to turn off. If you leave them on, they will turn themselves off which I think is good because I can't burn my house down. ( would be very embarrassing to explain to my family that the reason the house burnt to the ground was because I straightened my hair.) so I, greatful for that feature!
Overall I would recommend these to girls ( which they are really designed for) but men with longer hair would be able to use them too. I know a few guys who own this this too.
They are genuinely good and do the job. Maybe shop around for something cheaper? There are other options out there.
Thanks for reading and I hope I helped :)
Summary: Expensive, but great quality!
