    Best Little Curling Iron Ever!
    Like most people, I got this curling iron for free, but it works like a dream! With my other curling irons, they take a long time to heat up, they get too hot for my hair, and when I try to pull the iron out of my hair, the hair snags and/or breaks off. The Solia curling iron does none of that at all. It is very quick to heat up, probably about a minute, I can touch the curling and it never burns me but curls the hair perfectly, and when it's time to work the hair out of the clip, it never pulls any of the hair out, the hair just slips out of the clip and curling rod. The only thing I really have to say about it is once you get to the last pieces of your hair, it does get kind of hot, so if you have fine hair, you might want to work quicker, or let it cool down a tad, but it probably won't break off your hair. I love this curling iron, and I highly recommend it.

    Big Things Come In Small Packages
    I have to day, I received this iron as a freebie with an order. I didn't think much of it as the video tutorials showed individuals with short hair. I one the other hand have long hair that almost reaches my waist. I tested it the same day I received it out of curiosity.

    Here is my list of pros:

    1. The barrel of this teeny tiny iron measures 3.5-inches, plus an extra .5-inch for the 'tip', for a total length of 4-inches. The grip/handle measures 4.25-inches (not including the swivel cord, because who holds a hair tool by the swivel cord, right?!). The total length of this curling iron is, drumroll please, 8.25-inches. Coincidently, it measure 1-inch less in length than the "croc mini flat iron" I ordered.

    2. The barrel, once plugged in and switched to "on" will heat up extremely quick, In exactly 1-1/2 mins, this iron is smokin'.

    3. Compact and light, you can store this easily and safely anywhere.

    4. After receiving this iron, I don't need to purchase a clipless iron, because as one of the video reviewers mentioned, the clip is so thin it's almost not there.

    5. Hair glides beautifully along the barrel

    Now for the cons:

    1. If you don't need/use high heat, you may potentially burn your hair, so you MUST work in small sections and work quickly in order to avoid burning your hair, but this is the case with many tools where users switch their tool to the highest setting and singe their hair without properly thinking about their hair type and the amount of time needed to gain the result they need without over doing it.

    2. If you want to work with larger sections of hair, your hair will snag at the base of the barrel where the clip meets the grip. This will not be an issue if you intend to use it like a clip-less iron, but is an issue if you use it with the clip. I used it with the clip (I prefer the clip) and quickly retrained myself to work with small/thinner sections of hair.

    3. If you have long hair like I do, the first few times using it will seem long, but with practice you can get your entire head done in 20-mins...I did it, so can you!!! :-)

    4. The tip gets VERY HOTTT! I burned the tip of my fingers and learned to whip out my friend, the heat resistant glove...if you order this, you must air on the side of safety and USE A HEAT RESISTANT GLOVE. I can not emphasize this enough.

    Okay, so that was a lot of information. I hope this will help you gals/bros out there to clarify some of the ups/downs of this tool. All in all, I am super happy folica.com threw this in as a freebie when I purchased my croc mini flat iron, otherwise I would have never given it a try.

    Happy shopping and hair styling! :-D

    Really Nice Product, For Free Too!
    I'm not much on curling my hair, mostly because I've never been able to get it to hold a curl as my hair is very very fine and straight. However, this little gadget came for free with something else that I ordered so of course I tried it. I heard that Solia products are very nice and I had never tried a ceramic curling iron before. I had someone curl my hair for me and it was so hot that they thought they were burning my hair but I said "no, keep going I have lots of hair product in and I don't think the ceramic can damage the hair like the old irons do" So yes this little guy gets very hot and you do have to be careful with it! BUT WOW! FINALLY my stubborn hair stayed curled and cute all night at work and it was a particularly sweaty, muggy hot night! I definitely recommend it, one thing though, as the other reviews mention, it is easy to switch the little button off while you are working with it, but other than that, great product!

    Nice Curls But They Didn't Last
    I've bought curling irons that wouldn't put a curl in my hair. This one produces lovely curls. Now I just need to figure out how to make them stay because they fell out (so my hair looked more wavy than curly) in an hour, even though I used hair spray.

    Great Little Curling Iron
    This was a freebie, so I didn't expect much. I was very pleasantly surprised. It heats very quickly, and does a great job curling my hair - the curls really last! My hear is fairly thick, and is in the awkward 'growing out' stage - but his curling iron helps make it look very nice. The only criticism I would have is that the tip at the end, where you can hold it - is VERY short - only @ 5/8 of an inch, at most, and it's tapered. I would have been much happier if it had been an inch long. So, if you're used to holding the end, you have to be VERY careful or you'll singe your fingertips. It would also have been nice if it had come in a little carry pouch. But, otherwise, I like this so much I am considering giving it as stocking-stuffer gifts.
