This wand heats up within 30 seconds and has a 60-second automatic shut-off feature, meaning you'll never have any midday did-I-turn-off-my-curler panics ever again. The barrel also comes in 1-inch and 1.5-inch sizes, heats up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit (and can be adjusted), and has a ceramic coating for even heat distribution.
SIDE NOTE: I have been using the same Remington wand for about six (maybe seven) years and it is truly a gift from above. For reference, I have super straight, thin hair that usually can't ever hold a curl, but this helps me achieve a full head of beach waves in under 15 minutes.
Promising review: "I have had this for five years and it still works amazingly. I use it so much that people don't know my hair is naturally straight, and I get compliments on it all the time. Honestly, I cannot believe how well this works and how long it's lasted considering how cheap it is. I bought this on a whim (cause it's only $20!) and it is one my greatest purchases of all time." —madison
