Avaliable at most departments store normally for around £50, but Today at Argos they are currently on offer at £33.29 ( 1/3 off )
I actually bought these for my sister as her other ones had broken. I choose these specific ones for the colour. They are a very very bright pink colour, and as that is here favorite colour I thought they would be perfect. I got the in the sale at Argos as well for £33.29 instead of the normal £49.99. The come in a long rectangular box with black and grey writing on. It has a picture of them on the front and has a list of the features.
Using them - Couldn't be simpler, plug them in and wait 15 secs and your away, though when I used them I did so straight away. They have 20 different heat setting and because of my sisters thick curly hair she whacked it right up to 20, for me I have it less. The buttons dont moved if knocked which is good and the power cord is great as iits very long and has a swivel end on the straightners. The plates are actually quiet big allowing you to so more hair at the same time, making it quicker to straighten all of the head. when finished, they also cool down very quickly, but another reason for me buying these ones is because of the automatic shut off after 72 mins. My sister is always leaving hers on so at least now its safer if she does as they will go off buy them selves.
I have used them both on my hair and my sisters hair and have found them to be good quality. They heat up quick and are easy to use. I like the large panels as it makes it quicker but it also makes it easy to use for making curls aswell. The long power cord is very usefull and the fact it comes with a heat proff case and mat is great value for money. These are good forr teenagers, like my sister, beause of the automatic shut off. It makes them a lot safer than other makes and brands.
I dont like the heat settings though as it doesnt tell you a temperature. Ok max heat is 235 degrees which would be setting 20 but the rest of the seetings you have no idea how hot it is in degrees. Also they come with a little book, but it isnt any help as it isnt instructions. It is just a book explaining the model name, no settings help at all. Also I found them very lightweight which I guess some people would like but for me personally no as you cant feel howw close they are to your head, ears ect.
I have given them 4/5 because they are very durable and for the price I payed they are worth it. They have great safety features will still being stylish and modern. They make a great present as well. So I would recommend them.
Thanks for reading and rating.
The Pro 235 Styler has been specially designed with a curved housing so you can easily create both straight and curly styles.It reaches up to 235 Degrees Celsius for high heat performance and is ready to use in just 15 seconds. The 25% longer titanium-ceramic plates can style larger sections of hair at one time and give a smooth, shiny finish to styles.Helpful HintsFor delicate, fine or coloured hair, use the lower heat settings. For thicker hair, use the higher heat settings.To create defined curls, use smaller sections of hair. For looser curls or waves, use larger sections of hair. For best results, the section should be no more than 3.5cms wide.
