Babyliss Pro Ceramic Curling Iron 32mm

I bought the Babyliss Pro Ceramic Curling Iron 19mm a few months ago and have loved it.  Since then, I’ve put the 1-inch (32mm) curling iron on my wishlist.  I finally got it from my shopping haul at RY.com.au

The Babyliss Pro Ceramic Curling Iron 32mm has a similar look/function to the 19mm –

  • Same Clip to hold the hair
  • 25 different temperature settings for fine, medium and thick hair
  • Slightly rubbery gripped handle
  • 360 swivel cord
  • the push on/off button
  • the little metal stand that can get hot if it touches the heated barrel
  • heats up extremely quickly

Of course, the only difference between the two is the width of the barrel.  The 1 inch barrel gives a bigger looser curl compared to the curls from the 19mm.  It is great for giving loose waves to the hairstyle or giving some texture to the hair.

Picture time!

Babyliss Pro Ceramic Curling Iron 19mm

Hello there!

Hair curler review today!  Every girl needs something to fancy up their hair!  There are countless of hairstyles that you can do with a hair curler or even a hair straightener.

Today, the review will be on the Babyliss Pro Ceramic Curling Iron 19mm (3/4 inch).  I heard that Babyliss Pro is one of the best hair curlers out there.  Unfortunately, I do not have another hair curler so I can’t actually compare this but on it’s own, I am loving this hair curler, so far.  I bought this from My HairCare.

This curling iron has a clip, which allows you to create ribbon curls (see picture below!)  The clip part of the curling iron also heats up.  This means that you can wind your hair around the curling iron for more relaxed curls.  This curling iron comes with a few heat settings (25 different temperatures, to be exact).  The instruction pamphlet that comes with the iron states that temp settings 1-8 (low) is for delicate, thin, easy to curl hair; temp settings 9-17 (medium) is for normal to treated hair; temp settings 18-25 (high) is for thick or wavy hair.  Since the barrel of the iron can get quite hot, it’s very advisable to ensure you’re careful with it (don’t touch it with your fingers, accidentally touch your face or ears or even drop it on yourself).  The barrel of the iron also heats up quite quickly (within a minute to a minute and a half).

The handle has got a slightly rubbery grip and a cord does not tangle as it swivels 360 degrees around the base of the handle (great when you are curling your hair, round and round and round).  The clip is extremely easy to open and close as it is in easy reach.  However, the on and off button is slightly annoying because it’s just a push button.  Since I am not used to the curling iron, I tend to press the on and off button by accident.  By the time I know it, the curling iron is no longer hot!  You’ll get used to the iron and the position of it’s buttons the longer you use it.  The iron comes with a built-in stand.  I wish they provided a heat resistant mat instead as the stand can heat up easily if it’s touching the barrel or it can get tangled in your hair when you’re curling it.

Now, the well awaited pictures!

Conclusion:

I love this new curling iron.  It heats up quickly and I love the variable heat settings, which means I won’t burn my already damaged hair.  It also curls my hair very quickly (I only let my hair touch the heated iron for about 10 seconds).

Price:

Prices vary from hair shop to online stores.  Range from AUD$65 – AUD$90 (yes, that’s a big range)

Where to buy:

Hairdresser shops, online.  I got mine from My Haircare
