Awful customer service

I was promised a discounted price as they didn't have a straightener with the required plug for my country. Victoria from Karmin advised I would receive 25% off the price. I went ahead with the purchase on this basis. It arrived 4 weeks later. I have contacted Victoria multiple time since then but have not received a response or refund, this was over 4 months ago. Good product terrible service. DONT BUY FROM FROM HERE.

Karmin · 

Hello, I am Kris with Karmin customer service and I do apologize for the inconvenience, this must have been an error as we do have AU plugs, Can you let me know your order number so we can send you the correct plug? Thank you.

My Order number was #10761. I have been sent a UK plug to use in Australia which obviously is not compatible.

Karmin · 

Hello, Yes I understand and we will send you the correct plug, Can you confirm your last 4 digits of your phone you used so we can make sure we have the correct order,

I love my Karmin straightener

I purchased my Karmin straightener several years ago and it is still going strong. It heats up very quickly, stays hot and allows me to straighten my hair quickly without having to go over each piece multiple tunes. I also feel that this straightener doesn’t scorch my hair like other straighteners I’ve used previously. I really like my Karmin straightener and recommend it for someone with fine hair like myself.

It's the best!

I have curly hair, really curly and I've tried many hair irons and none of them fully worked for me, until this one. It does what it supposes to do and excels at it. When it arrived I got surprised by the lightness of it and how it leaves a very straight and shiny hair. I'm really satisfied with this purchase. I recommend it.

Love this styling iron

I love this styling iron. I have had it for years and it works great. My grandkids come over and use it and like it too. I use a lot of product on my hair and I wipe it off before it cools down and then wipe it again before I use it and the plates are clean. If mine ever quits, I'm buying another one. I bought in 2012 and still works great!

Very good quality and price / Muy buena calidad y precio

Very good quality, similar to more expensive items. The lightest ones I have ever used and easy to use. The bag can be opened and laid out, it is very easy-to-use too and handy to put the iron on it.

The G3 Salon Pro Hair Iron is really an excelent product!

Initially I was no sure about buying this iron because I didn't know anybody who used it but I did a little research and is all TRUE! My hair is very silky, soft and straight when I use this iron. Like never before!

Bad product - terrible service

I purchased the Karmin Salon Series hair straightener in August 2017. It worked for almost 4 weeks and then stopped working. I paid A$35 to post it back and awaited the replacement. The second iron worked for 5 weeks and then also stopped. I have been emailing Customer Service back and forth for the past month but have yet to receive the replacement. [name removed] has been telling me that she has requested a new shipment for the past month and won't respond to my questions. Please don't waste your money on purchasing this poor quality product. I have fine hair and use it at the highest temperature and it doesn't feel as hot as it should. I am sure that a lot of the reviews on their page are fake.

It's a decent flat iron, but within 6 months the ceramic plates started to lock up (get stuck pushed in), which causes my hair to gets snagged in the plates causing breakage to my hair. I have to constantly fix it. I thought this was gonna be better than the CHI, but unfortunately it doesn't match up. I do like the width of the plates compared to the CHI though.

I love my Karmin!

I love my Karmin. I have very thick and course hair. Karmin is able to tame my mane! My hair has different textures. The adjustable heat settings allow me to better manage the heat on my hair. The heat is instant and sometimes my hair does snag. This product is easy to use!

Great warranty service

This iron heats up fast and stays consistently hot. Will never have any other and have recommended to friends . Had a warranty issue and company replaced with proof of purchase. Is easy to clean. LOVE the travel bag for it.

Questions & Answers

Hi I ordered the Pro Series on on 3/26 and have not received my product. I have been sending emails to cs@karmin.ca and have been given the run around about the status update. A FedEx tracking was created but FedEx said Karmin has not sent them the product and it's been over 2 weeks. Where is my product so I can cancel and send it back or credit my credit card. Am afraid I might be given a fake address to send it back

Karmin · 

Hello EnReval, I hope you're doing well. Can you let me know your order number so I can check this for you. Thank you.

Hi, I am looking to replace my current straightener (a GHD). After 3 years it has become much weaker and I am no longer satisfied with the way my hair looks after I straighten it no matter how long I spend doing it. I have really thick, curly hair and was looking for something that would work well for my hair. I also straighten my hair every week and was looking for something that wouldn't damage it too much. Is there a specific hair straightener that you think may work best for me ? Also wondering what the material of the plates are and if you guys do any student discounts at all? Thanks, Marlin

KathC · 

Don't buy Karmin I'm sure the reviews are fake. I had a GHD for 20 years and changed , BAD idea!

Linda · 

Where can I buy one? I live in Melbourne Australia.
