Chi Spin N Curl Review
The Good
  • It’s user friendly. you might have some hesitation at first because it might seem longer than your usual wand. But don’t be intimidated. And once you take it out for a spin, you’ll understand what I am saying! There’s no learning curve or whatsoever. Besides, not everybody has time for that
  • Looks posh and sophisticated. I am planning to display it where my friends can see it on my vanity desk
  • It’s made of ceramic. It’s the preferred material of most hairstylists. Why? Because it’s gentler for your hair and can disperse heat evenly through your hair strands. So your hair is spared from being fried. And since it can eliminate static electricity, you’ll never have a frizzy hair day
  • It’s dual voltage. So you can bring it with you to your business meetings abroad. Though it might be a bit longer compared to your usual wand
  • Curls your hair in under 20 minutes. Yes, that’s all you need to get a fabulous curly hairstyle
  • The curls last longer and look more defined
  • It’ll be quite hard to burn yourself with this curler, even if you’re willing to
The Bad
  • Some may find the barrels too long. I might take up a bit of space in your luggage. But if you want to still have fabulous hair even if you’re miles away, the extra space is worth it. Besides, you might save money on salon fees
  • It only comes in one size
Chi Spin N Curl Review
The Good
  • Hair strand is pulled into the barrel automatically
  • Timed heating prevents hair from being burned
  • Can curl hair in different directions
The Bad
  • Hair can get tangled when there is too much on the barrel
  • Not ideal for those with bob cut or shorter hair
  • Requires more practice since it is a new concept for many
I Reviewed The Chi Air Spin N’ Curl Iron
The Good
  • You don’t need to know how to curl your hair. The last friend who tried to teach me how to curl my hair lasted exactly 10 minutes before my incompetence broke her and left her repeating “Curl outside in, outside in” while trembling in a corner. Thankfully, this iron takes your hair and curls it all by itself—you just need to push a button for the direction you want
  • You cannot—I repeat—cannot burn yourself. I’ve even masochistically tried, inching my finger onto the surface of the outer chamber like a surrogate patch of tender neck or scalp ready to be charred, and folks, it does not burn you. This thing is truly idiot proof
  • Your hair can’t get stuck or tangled in it, no matter how lazily you section it off. I’m not one for precision when it comes to these things, so if I can get through it without ripping out my hair, you can too
  • Your arm doesn’t get tired. I can’t even blow-dry my hair without my arms getting exhausted and me turning irritable (which is why, you know, I don’t). But you’re doing very little work here—mostly just pinching off pieces of hair to feed into the chamber
  • You don’t have to guess the temp. I assumed the fancy digital thermometer was just to make it seem more high tech than it needed to be, but it’s actually very convenient to know exactly when the iron is hot enough to use (which, in my experience, is within a minute)
The Bad
  • It doesn’t leave my hair feeling as sleek as when I bust out my Hot Tools Titanium curling iron (yes, I own one, and I sometimes even use it). The Chi Air Spin N’ Curl’s barrel is ceramic, while my Hot Tools iron is titanium, which tends to heat up faster and make your hair smoother
  • It doesn’t give me a ton of volume on top. The chamber is a bit too thick and clunky to get super close to my roots the way a traditional iron can, so for curls around my crown, I’ll sometimes need to top off a few strands with my Hot Tools iron
  • The size of the curls bothers me sometimes. If—IF—I’m being nitpicky. The Chi iron is only available in a 1-inch size, so the curls can look a little sausage-y right out of the barrel. They’re still pretty, especially if you rake through them with your fingers while they’re cooling, but you do have to be willing to wait for the curls to fall to get the perfect beachy look. If Chi ever makes a 1.5-inch or 2-inch version, I’m THERE
