Babyliss Pro vs. Hot Tools curling irons

Hi guys! So I know a lot of you guys love curling your hair. I, for one, can only muster up enough energy to curl it on rare occasions but Flat Iron Experts approached me recently asking me to do a video for them. I didn't want to do yet another curling hair video (and lets admit it you can only watch so many "how to curl your hair with a flat iron" videos before you want to slap yourself) so I thought it'd be interesting to talk about some good high and low end models. I'm all for investing in your hot tools, but sometimes you just don't need something quite as expensive. 

If you curl your hair very rarely and have particularly resilient hair, then maybe a more economical curling iron will suffice! Technology has come a long way and even though I still don't like curling irons made by brands like Revlon etc I wanted to showcase some more inexpensive products that don't get quite as much love.

Conversely maybe you curl your hair all the time, and investing in a good curling iron will pay off in the long run. To make it easier to compare the two irons that I reviewed here's a chart I made below:

hot tools vs babyliss
 Hot Tools Professional Spring Curling Iron vs.  Babyliss Pro Tourmaline Ceramic Curling Iron

FIE also offers a 30 day warranty on all their items. If you don't like it, send it back!

Some FAQ:
What's the difference between ceramic vs metal (non ceramic) hot tools?

Ceramic tools emit negative ions that make your hair sleeker and shinier, they are also less damaging. They also minimize heat loss while styling hair and can help remove hair odor. They heat up faster and age much better than more inexpensive irons.

What is a ceramic tourmaline iron?

A ceramic tourmaline iron is essentially the same thing as a ceramic iron, with the exception that it has the added benefits of tourmaline. This mineral emits 6 times more negative ions than a traditional ceramic iron.

So thats it! I hope that was helpful. And this is the video if you guys didn't get a chance to see it:

I also have a contest going on where the winner will win one of the two irons! One will win the Babyliss and one will win the Hot Tools iron. Winner will be chosen in 2 weeks
