What customers say about "Key Specs"
Babyliss Pro BABNT3053 Nano Titanium Mini Straightening Iron
  • The titanium plates heat up quickly and remains hot.
  • The titanium plates do move quickly over your hair, which is a plus.
  • It heats up extremely fast, and I could actually curl my hair with it unlike a regular sizes one.
  • It heats up quick and does a nice job.
  • Heats really well but it is best for very thin/short hair as it is quite small.
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • I'm a man, and only use it on my bangs sometimes, and it's a really fast process which makes me happy.
  • It heated quickly and the temperature was perfect.
  • It heats up in seconds and it gets HOT.
  • It seems that the 1" Chi gets hotter than the 2" with the temperature setting, and works better for straightening.
  • The positive aspects of this one is that it does heat up more quickly and maintains it's temperature.

What customers say about "Size & Weight"
Babyliss Pro BABNT3053 Nano Titanium Mini Straightening Iron
  • Just as good as larger size & almost zero space needed to pack! Highly recommend!
  • It's perfect for my short hair and easy to handle. Works for everyday and tiny to take with me on trips.
  • I love how the size makes it so easy to bring when travelling
  • So much more compact and light weight than your standard straightening iron.
  • Great for travel. Light weight.
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • Loved that it didn't snag my hair like my old flat iron did at times. Perfect travel size too!
  • I really appreciate the smaller size as well, since my last straightener was considerably larger and heavier.
  • The iron is a good size, light with a nice long cord- longer than that of my hairdryer which is helpful.
  • Worth every cent! Heats up quickly! Compact in size.
  • It's also a good size to be able to make curls/waves too.

What customers say about "Features"
Babyliss Pro BABNT3053 Nano Titanium Mini Straightening Iron
  • Love the 1" width plate, saves time over other travel-sized straightening irons that are only .5" wide.
  • The product was going to be too hot to use on my short hair since it only heats up to one temperature, but I've used it a couple of times now, and it's pretty great.
  • It doesn't have a temperature regulator. I really wanted to like this flat iron but my hair looked fried the first time I use it and I had heat protector. I'm afraid to use it again.
  • It does NOT shut off automatically.
  • The indicator light is really dull.
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • The plates actually move so there is no tugging to the hair - i didn't realize how bad it was with my previous flat irons, but with this Chi everything is so smooth.
  • This iron has ceramic plates so it doesn't damage your hair.
  • The 1" ceramic plate is nice, because you can use it to make curls or straighten your hair.
  • The ceramic plates work a miracle on your hair.
  • Also, the on/off switch is in an awkward position - in between the paddles instead of on the side. It is easy to burn your fingers when you reach in to shut it off.
  • There is only one temperature setting, so it might not be good for people with delicate hair.

What customers say about "Power"
Babyliss Pro BABNT3053 Nano Titanium Mini Straightening Iron
  • The compact size and dual voltage feature were great for traveling.
  • The cord does not tangle and it cools down fairly fast.
  • It has a long cord.
  • The dual voltage is built in so I did not have to purchase a converter.
  • I needed a compact, inexpensive dual voltage flat iron to take to Italy and this fit the bill.
CHI PRO GF-1001 Ceramic Hairstyling Iron
  • I love that it has a long cord and also has a strap to hold the cord once you wrap it up.
  • The cord is also very long and swivels where it connects to the iron, so it tangles much less frequently. The cord also has a Velcro strap for better storage and easier transportation.
  • The new swivel cord design avoids any cord frustration, and there is an attached Velcro piece that keeps the cord folded neatly and secure when not in use.
  • The only thing I dislike is the cord, which is unbearably long.
  • The cord stiff and cheap and the whole thing like a light plastic toy.
