What customers say about "Size & Weight"
HSI PROFESSIONAL Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Flat Iron (E038) Incl Glove, Pouch, & Travel Size Argan Oil Hair Treatment
  • I love the size of it, it's not so big that it's hard to handle and it's not too small that it would take a long time to do my hair.
  • The size is amazing and it can overheat so it comes with the gloves which are super handy!
  • I would recommend this product if your looking for a straightener thats light weight, gets hot and gets the job done!
  • Overall, I am impressed with the quality of construction, weight (it's a bit heavier than other irons I've used, which lends to the feeling of better construction)
  • A good weight, not light, not heavy.
Babyliss Pro BABNT3053 Nano Titanium Mini Straightening Iron

What customers say about "Features"
HSI PROFESSIONAL Ceramic Tourmaline Ionic Flat Iron (E038) Incl Glove, Pouch, & Travel Size Argan Oil Hair Treatment
  • I really like the digital read out and the discreet controls out of the way of accidental bumping.
  • The iron has a dial to regulate the temperature of the iron from 140 to 450 degrees F.
  • It's great to be able to regulate the amount of heat it uses so that I can get all that I need while not letting my hair singe. I would recommend getting this.
  • There is a green power indicator light that shows it is turned on, a good reminder to turn it off or unplug it when you are finished using it.
  • The indicator light shines red while heating and turns green when ready; couldn't be easier.
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.

What customers say about "Power"

  • It also has a nice long cord which can come in handy.
  • The cord doesn't get tangled or bent because it has a 360 degree swivel cord to prevent that.
  • It heats fast, is easy to operate, the cord is long (thank you!).
  • The cord is extra long which helps with long hair.
  • This appears to be the only full size dual voltage flat iron on the market right now. There aren't any switches you need to flip for the voltage - it automatically switches on its own.
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.
