Now let’s see positive reviews as per end users – the PROs:
- Simply the best hair straightener I’ve ever had..
- It does a great job both straightening and curling my hair. I don’t have to get up at 5 AM anymore in order to style my hair for work..
- I love the perfect 1-inch size of this flat iron. It also got shipped so fast…
- Fits right into my small hand, it’s really light and tames all of my kinks. It leaves my hair super smooth and shiny.
- As anybody who styles their own hair knows, less is more.. My clients love the results.
- It heats up really fast and it flattens my hair without frying it. It also gives it some body and my hair remains frizz-free for a whole day at work.
- Heats up super fast and it’s really light and easy to use. After buying one for myself I started giving this baby as a gift to my friends, since they loved it too.
- It’s just the right size and very easy to hold. Great iron at an even better price. It was basically a steal!
- It works really well, I have no complaints. It was a great Christmas gift from my husband.
- Not only that it heats up really fast, it also cools down just as fast when you turn it off. That’s super important to me, because I’m forgetful.
- It’s efficient and straightens my hair in one stroke. It also offers much better protection from burning your fingers compared to the irons I previously owned.
- Everything I expect from a hair straightener and more. It also curls hair beautifully….
- Nicely built, very compact. Smart design and very light…
- It works better than I expected, I can now style my hair in less than 7 minutes…I measured the time…
- It gets really hot and just glides smoothly through your hair. Would definitely recommend it.
- It doesn’t make my hair smell funny like my previous hair straightener, and it works just as good on both dry and damp hair.
- Definitely my best one so far and I’ve tried out many flat irons…

Now for the negative reviews as per end users of this product – the CONs:
- I’d like if it had a dial rather than an On/Off switch..
- It came all beaten up when it first arrived, I’ve sent it back and I’m waiting for a replacement.
- It might be a mistake on my side, but I figured 350 degreed would be even hotter than this…
- It gives me the impression that it’s extremely fragile because it’s so small, I’m afraid to try to take it with me on a business trip.
- It doesn’t have auto off…
My resume on this Revlon hair straightener:
After reading so many reviews and specs of this flat iron, and after actually seeing this one in action, it’s safe to say that this is truly a good little trooper.
It does exactly what it’s supposed to do; it straightens and curls your hair, yet leaves it nice and healthy. A big plus is that it’s really light so it can be used by the elderly and pre-teens. The design is really compact and smart, yet it has all the features of “real-size” straighteners.
I don’t like the fact that it doesn’t have a safety switch and I always prefer a dial to an ON/OFF switch.
Overall, as a hairstylist, I must say that this little guy seems like the real deal. I don’t have the first-hand experience when it comes to this particular Revlon, but some of my colleagues use it in salons and I contacted the when writing this review. Vast majority of them had only good things to say about it.
All in all, it seems like a bargain, and suitable for use both in salons and at home.
