Barbar 1 1/2″ Tourmaline Barrel Curling Iron

0 Flares 0 Flares ×

When was the last time you bought a new curling iron? Well I bought mine in high school. Yes folks, that’s over 15 years ago. Admittedly I’m not very tough on curling irons. I only use them a few times a month, but I have been finding myself using them more and more often. Since I no longer have time to blow dry my hair in the morning (kids put such a damper of your style sometimes, don’t they?), I often just wash my hair at night. I find that a quick run through with the curling iron in the morning gives me some semblance of style.

I was THRILLED with the opportunity to try out the Barbar 1 1/2″ Tourmaline Barrel curling iron. This is one fancy curling iron, and I was clearly in desperate need of a new one.  Just look at how pretty it is too!  I was really expecting professional quality from such a well known brand, and wow did it deliver!  We have been so pleased with our previous reviews of Barbar products.  Check out our reviews of the Barbar Hairdryer and Clippers.

The Barbar Tourmaline Curling Iron creates beautiful, lasting curls.  With four sizes to choose from, this curling iron covers any length!  Tourmaline is a healing crystal that blocks radiation.

  •                         AC 50/60 HZ                   
  •                         Swivel cord                   
  •                         Temperature control                   
  •                         110 Volts                   
  •                         Digital LED temperature display                   
  •                         392 F                   
  •                         Four Sizes: 3/4″, 1″, 1-1/2″, 1-1/4″                   
  •                         One year limited warranty

I chose the 1 1/2″ barrel because it seemed not too big and not too small.  It worked perfectly on my medium/long hair.  It creates long flowing curls that LAST!  I found that the iron heated up quickly and could reach a whopping 392 degrees.  The LED temperature display worked nicely and the 3 button control was super easy to use.  The tourmaline barrel glided through my hair without catching at all.  I really loved the results I was able to achieve within 5 minutes.  The curling iron is durable and powerful, with a nice swivel cord that won’t get twisted.  I did have to be careful when grabbing the end of the barrel while twisting my hair.  The insulated portion at the end seemed a little small.  Otherwise, I really loved the design features on this curling iron!
