Winter is quickly approaching and that means that it will soon be time to break out the fluffy infinity scarves and long flowing sweaters. Now maybe it’s the Pinterest junky in me talking, but I feel like there are two hairstyles that really make the winter look POP! The first being the not so lazy, lazy bun; the second being loose curls or waves. And as this summer beach wave look transfers over into the cold winter months, I know that we all need a styling tool to get the perfect look.
On that note, I’m excited to share with you the “Hot Tools Rainbow Gold Tapered Iron!” This iron is in your typical “wand” style: wide barrel at the base and narrow end with a long cooling tip. Reaching up to 450 degrees, this iron heats up FAST! In a matter of seconds after plugging it in, I realized the barrel was getting warm. Luckily, this tool comes with a Heat Resistant Glove. However, just for the sake of giving an honest review, the glove would come in handy if someone else is styling your hair; but if you are styling it yourself, it is a bit of an inconvenience to continuously switch the glove from one hand to the other. That being said, I don’t believe the inconvenience of having only one glove is necessarily a deal breaker.
The iron also features an 8-ft swivel cord, which I can honestly say is a big deal. I have owned curlers without them and the struggle is real. Of course it has a foldaway safety stand, separate on/off switch, and a dial on the side to set the temperature.

I genuinely love this product. On sale for $49.99 at ULTA, the large barrel and high temperature of this tool makes styling my hair so easy! I have to admit, the size was slightly intimidating initially. Add that with my lack of hand-eye coordination and styling skills, it wasn’t the easiest to use in the beginning, but once you get used to it, it’s a breeze!
What are your favorite styling tools?
