The Corioliss Pro Silver flat iron is nearly twice the price of the Solia, making it one of the most expensive tourmaline flat irons you can buy, but its worth every penny. Its good looks are consummate with its performance. Heat up time is only 6 seconds! The plate size is 1" and the plates reach a top temperature of 430F - higher than that of many flat irons. Sedu claim to make one of the lightest flat irons - the Sedu 1" flat iron weighing in at 0.9lbs - however, the Corioliss Pro Silver 1" flat iron weighs only 0.72lbs, making it very easy to use, especially when straightening the back of your hair. The iconic Corioliss Limited Edition Pink 1" flat iron is for those who want something a little special. And if youre looking for something extra special, take a look at the Corioliss Pro-Hair Purple Flat Iron. Finally, Corioliss flat irons come with dual-voltage as standard so you can use a Corioliss hair straightener anywhere in the world.
One of the cheapest, top-rated tourmaline flat irons is the Solia Tourmaline Ceramic Ion Flat Iron. The Solia tourmaline flat iron comes in four plate sizes; the 3/4"plate is perfect for bangs and really short hair and is also the perfect size for creating all sorts of curly-haired styles. Plate widths also include the 1" and 1 ¼" - the latter being the most popular size. These sizes are perfect for medium hair length or hair that isnt too curly. If you hair is difficult to straighten then you should definitely go for the 1 ¾" plates on the Solia tourmaline flat iron. Solia flat irons come with Dynamic Alignment System to ensure perfect contact between the plates and your hair. The Solia Limited Edition Pink flat iron is a very popular model, however, if youre looking to buy a pink flat iron, the Corioliss pink flat iron is a better choice; it looks better and heats up quicker than does the Solia but it is a lot more expensive - more about Corioliss in a moment. Finally, Solia claim that their tourmaline flat irons can be used on wet hair - actually damp hair that has been first combed through. This is a real plus point as using wet to dry flat irons avoid having to first use a hair dryer.
Recent FHI flat iron review has raved about the hype about their flat iron line called the FHIs Platform Series. This line comes in 8 versatile irons ranging from 4/10" to 1 3/4", plus a special domed iron for curls and waves. The highlights of these flat irons are the PTFC heater that provides quick heat up, heat recovery and heat distribution, the 3 layers of baked ceramics which provides durability and resistance to scratching and peeling, self-adjusting plates that reduce tension on hands and wrist for an easier grip, adjustable temperature dial that offers a wide operating temperature from 140 F to 450 F for all types of hair, extra long swivel cord for greater movement without cord tangling, and lastly the ergonomic handling designed for easy use.
The cheapest model on offer is the ConairPro Plimatic Trix Stix Series flat iron. First off, lets list is good points. It comes with 1" plates: a plate width many people feel comfortable using. Its smaller in size than many other flat irons, has a swivel cord and comes with dual voltage for worldwide use making it an ideal travel flat iron. The tips of the plates remain cool and the plates are ultra-slim making it great for shaping, flipping, lifting and smoothing short to medium hairstyles. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron does have some draw back. The Trix Stix uses gold colored metal plates and not ceramic. You wouldnt expect tourmaline in a flat iron as cheap as this but, in this day an age, you expect ceramic plates. Ceramic plates are smooth so dont tangle hair as much as metal and ceramic also emits negative ions to help keep hair straight. The ConairPro Trix Stix flat iron is fine for those with short/medium manageable hair or a as a travel flat iron but if your hair is thick or curly youll want to use a different flat iron.
