My daughter had been wanting a curling iron for a while, and I found this 3 barrel curling iron and another curling iron on sale and decided to purchase both. After using each of them, the 3 barrel is definitely her favorite. Her hair is hard to curl and sometimes doesn't keep a curl. The traditional curling iron didn't work well for her, but the 3 barrel worked the first time. It gave her hair a lot of body and a really pretty wave. She has used it on several of her friends and cousins, and it has worked well on every length of hair and hair texture. Everyone who has used it really likes the look, and it was reasonably priced, too. I would definitely purchase another one for a gift!
