About the Product
The Porcelain Ceramic™ technology in our straightening irons distributes even heat across the plates and generates far-infrared heat, a more efficient heating method which is gentler to hair. Rheostatic dials let you select desired temperatures up to 450°F and the ceramic heater provides instant heat-up and recovery, while the longer plates allow you to work faster with wider sections. The result is smooth, sleek and healthy-looking hair! Available in 1”, 1-1/2” and 2” plates.
The dynamic CHI G2 offers a sleek design, upgraded technology and outstanding performance. The G2 features titanium-infused ceramic plates for added durability and an even smoother glide. Digital temperature reading displayed on a color-coded LCD screen allows for proper temperature setting for fine, medium, and coarse hair up to 425°F.

What customers say about "Key Specs"
Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic BABP9557 Straightening Iron
  • These products are made to LAST and the settings on them are amazing mine has several different heating options and they heat up fast!
  • Gets very hot and works great. By far my favorite flat iron I've ever had.
  • Heat goes up to 450F. It's great. Highly recommend it!
  • The first thing I noticed with this straightener was how quickly it heated up. I put it on the highest setting to test it on my curly hair and I was NOT disappointed.
  • Heats up in seconds. Works great on both of my daughters thick unruly hair and my thin frizzy hair!
CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hairstyling Iron
  • The larger (1 1/2") plates and the different heat settings are perfect!
  • Heats up in no time.
  • Literally heats in 30 seconds and has a great travel/cool down wrap.
  • It heats up quickly and I love all of the heating options. I keep it at 350 degrees-my hair is on the fine side and it isn't thin, but not thick either. It's high quality and does perfect job at straightening my hair without me feeling like I'm singing it.
  • It heats up quickly and I love all of the heating options.
  • My hair is slightly wavy and even at the highest temperature, I had to pass through my hair at least 3 times to get it straight.

What customers say about "Features"
Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic BABP9557 Straightening Iron
  • Has an adjustable heat setting and extra long plates so I'm able to take larger sections when doing my hair.
  • I love the temp controls, I have fine hair and depending on the weather I may need more help. The adjust-ability is appreciated.
  • If you do a little research or know your hair products you know that ceramic plates are the BEST
  • I love the temperature control aspect, that it heats up fast and I don't get static in my hair.
  • The temperature dial was easy to use and it gives you lots of control over how much heat you want to use.
  • This iron gets hot quickly, but there is no flashing light or indicator that lets you know that it has reached the temperature that you set it at.
  • My only complaint is, the adjustment knob for temperature is hard to reach, and the numbers are hard to see, too small.
CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hairstyling Iron
  • I love the temperature control option.
  • Love my new Chi with the temperature control. I have fine hair so I needed a flat iron that I could control the temperature to ensure I didn't fry and dry my hair out.
  • I like how you can set the temperature or choose a pre-set Mode.
  • Has a great travel/cool down wrap.
  • Not an automatic shut off.
  • If you are traveling outside the US it may not be compatible with the electric and you could permanently damage your flat iron (or just create scary sparks in your outlet)!

What customers say about "Power"
Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic BABP9557 Straightening Iron
  • This straightener heats up very quickly and I like that it has a long cord.
  • The cord is longer than most straighteners which is handy for reaching the outlet.
  • I bought this straightener over 2 years ago and I use it almost everyday. I especially love the lengthy cord.
  • The slim design makes it easy to get close to my roots without fear of burning my scalp, and the swiveling cord makes it easy to straighten my hair without the cord getting in the way.
  • The other thing I didn't like about this iron is it doesn't have a swivel cord which I thought was standard with new irons.
  • My main complaint is the $%#ing cord. Twists and tangles beyond belief, and when I pull lightly on it to lengthen it, it unplugs from the wall, the unit shuts off, I plug it back in, turn it on again and untwist by hand.
CHI G2 Ceramic and Titanium Hairstyling Iron
  • This flatiron is for professional hairstylists so the cord is very long.
  • Love the cord turning attachment at the base so it won't get tangled. Great product!
  • An excellent tool, and it will be easy to travel with as it is dual voltage.
  • The cord is hard to stay straight.
