I have had to e-mail Birchbox twice now regarding this straightener. the "light" on the styler that should turn green to let you know it has reached temperature never turns to green even though it almost reaches to an untouchable heat level. Birchbox was fantastic and sent me a new one hoping to remedy the issue and maybe it being just one defective styler.
Again, the new styler had the same issue. I just kept with it figuring it was just a malfunction of the styler, until I set it down this morning after doing my hair and a corner of the plate chipped off just like that. Very poor quality in my opinion, and I would NOT recommend this to anyone else.
Super sleek and easy to use
When I received this in the mail I was originally going to return it as the heat setting doesn't show actual temperatures. However, I tried it anyway and, lo and behold, discovered I love it! I have straight hair but due to color treatments and age it's gotten a little frizzy over the years. This irons the frizz right out. It's gentle and so easy to use. It's not hot on the outside so you can grip it easily. Highly recommend!
It heats up very quickly and stays a constant temperature while using the flat iron. It leaves my hair so soft and takes care of all the frizz. Absolutely love this straightener, it is well worth the cost!
hot hot hot
This flat iron heats up super fast and leaves my hair feeling smooth, not dried out. It does smell a bit odd when it heats up, but that may be due to only using it a few times.
I received an Amika straightener for Christmas 5 or 6 years ago, and I still love it! It's the perfect temperature and perfect size...heats up super fast and gets the job done in half the time of other ones. I'd recommend this for all my friends and family any day! Also pretty sure mine came with a lifetime warranty....if anything ever goes wrong, you can just contact the company for a replacement...can't go wrong with that!
This straightener is one of the best there is and beats the other ceramic ones! I got mine 4 years ago from a kiosk and it still works like new. The best thing about it is that it is a real ceramic plate and smooths hair without frying it. When mine kicks the bucket, ill for sure be buying another of this brand.
I don't personally own this - but I will soon! My friend has this straightener and I use it more than I use my own. It works great and makes my hair shiny and straight and it stays that way all day long. Ceramic plates are a wise choice in straighteners as it is better for your hair and heat up nice and evenly. Will be purchasing and I recommend you do the same!
Excellent flat iron!
I was overdue for a flat iron update and am very happy with my choice! The amica iron heats up super fast, is lightweight and doesn't snag hair when pulling through my hair. I love that i can curl the ends slightly for a more finished look!The peacock design is very fun! I'm really happy with this purchase !!
I really like how quickly this heats up and how it really doesn't leave my hair damaged or feeling dry. You really can do a lot of different types of styles too, not just straight.
This tool is not only adorable but it gets the job done right. To get my hair straight with this I use a lot less passes than I have with any other straightener. I had originally purchased a mini and loved it so much i had to get the full size. It leave my hair nice and smooth and doesn't feel like it is burning anything. The floating plates are also great if you are able to do curls with it.
