I use this curling iron to curl my front whenever I need to curl my hair. I'm amazed by the results that I get from using the curling iron. I can finally have the vintage red carpet style waves I have always wanted. It's not easy to curl my hair I have to say. I use the thin one for the front and thick iron for the back. Overall, it does take a bit of time, but the result is amazing! I love babyliss!
