Babyliss Pro Ceramic Multi Hair Styler
Advantages: Versatile, good price, works well
Disadvantages: No case
**What is it?**
The Babyliss Pro Ceramic Multi Hair Styler is a tong like no other! In fact no, it's not a tong (well, sometimes it is, it's also a tong, a spiral tong, a crimper and a straightener! It's a one stop shop for all your hair styling needs and it also has interchangable barrels so you can make 12 different stylers all with the one base unit!
**Why did I buy?**
I bought it just for it's sheer versatility, and for the fact that it's ceramic and gets to 200 degrees celcius, a good heat for my hair which is sort of wavy and pretty much takes on any style without crazily high heats.
**Price and Availability**
The Babyliss Pro Ceramic Multi Hair Styler is available from Argos for £29.99 and on Argos.co.uk (P&P applies though you can click and collect). You can also buy it on Amazon with free delivery or in many high street electrical retailers and independent online stores.
**What's in the Box?**
You get the Babyliss Pro Ceramic Multi Hair Styler base with plug, an instructional manual, warranty card and the following attachments:
13, 16 and 19 size ceramic barrels
A ceramic straightening head
A ceramic crimping head
A hot brush plastic sleeve
A spiral twist plastic sleeve
You also get four sectioning 'crocodile' black plastic clips like they use in the hair dressers' to help you with getting an even style.
All feel good quality and have the Babyliss logo.
It's very easy to use, just select the head you want to use (or barrel and optional sleeve) and switch on, within 10 - 15 seconds it's ready to use, it's very fast heating at 36 watts and 200 degrees celcius. The attachments are easy to use and the base has a rotating swivel cord so no tangles!
I will go through the list above with notes on how I've found use of each of the attachments:
13, 16 and 19 size ceramic barrels - the 13 makes very tight ringlets and it's probably the one I've used least. It would probably suit someone with thicker hair than mine as it looks a bit schoolgirly on me. The 16 is a smaller curl suited to pre curling for updos, and for use with the attachment sleeves, and the 19 for me is the one I use the most as it creates more tumbling soft curls when brushed through and gives great volume.
A ceramic straightening head - I straighten my hair often and this is a nice wide straightener which you can get close to the scalp and in one pass straightens the hair leaving a nice sheen.
A ceramic crimping head - back when I was younger it was all the rage but now I only use the crimping head when I need mega volume for an updo, for example around a large donut ring bun shaper. It works well.
A hot brush plastic sleeve - great for if you don't have much time, it gives volume at the root and turns the end of the hair under for a great everyday look.
A spiral twist plastic sleeve - this gives a nice spiral effect to the hair which needs softening a little but when tied up into a high pony always adds something new and complimentary without looking too try hard.
I would have liked to see a long corkscrew curl tong, as currently I use a seperate one but for the money you can't really argue. Also, a way to change the temperature would again be handy but it's not a biggie.
I'd have liked to get a storage case or a heat mat with this set, I've had to buy these seperately from Amazon, not a huge niggle but with a set with so many small parts, essential!
Yes, for £29.99 and the results it gives it's a great styler, the Babyliss Pro Ceramic Multi Hair Styler is a great little set, with so many uses and fab for travel, too. It would make a great gift too :)
I'll give it four out of five, losing the one star just for the lack of a case really but it's a high 4 - think of it as a 4.5 even - because I really am glad I bought this and I think it will last me a decent amount of time.
Summary: A good buy
