Hair gets stuck
My teen daughter has slightly wavy hair and found this appliance stressful to use. It has a motor which quickly pulls hair in to curl. When it cleanly pulls the hair in it’s fabulous but it did get stuck a few times which freaked her out and I fortunately got her caught hair out. We gave it away to a friend and we now use a manual normal curling wand.

I have fine, dead straight hair that is always hard to curl. I have read the other reviews about this product and I must add... I have owned this product for over 2 years and its the best thing i have owned. The lady that got her hair caught in it for 40 mins, I'm sorry that happened but normally the curler does the beep,beep,beep and releases the hair. Its great for doing the hair in a hurry as the curl time is quite quick. Word of warning, if you use it for the first time.... experiment. Go for the looser curler otherwise you'll end up with a head full of small curls and walk out looking similar to a french poodle. I love the product, so all those that have warned not to buy it, sorry.... I CAN'T agree. I'd be lost without mine.

Second time using - hair stuck - took three people 40 minutes to get it out
I used this on a weekend to test it out. I followed the instructions and did not put too much hair in. Brushed it, small sections, etc.
Second use - same thing. When I released it on one of my last sections of hair, it did not actually release. The contraption inside locked down on my hair and wouldn't let it out. My husband got out a variety of screw drivers and worked on taking it apart. We got our teenage son to help too. Eventually got our other teenage son to help too. It took them over 40 minutes. Even after taking out the scr...
Easy to use curler
It's a very easy to use curler, gives you either loose curls or tight defined curls as it's got different settings. Takes a few go's before you can get used to it. If your hair does get stuck in it, it comes off easily. Would recommend if you're looking to not invest in an expensive curler and if you looking for something easy to use.
This is perfect for tidying up my curls
I have naturally curly hair, however once I have slept on it I still have perfectly formed curls on the underneath but the top layers tend to get frizzy and can go a bit haywire.
This is the perfect solution to quickly curl and tidy up the top layers. Took me a little time to figure out the best way to make mine look natural, I don't follow the suggestion of right handed curls on the right side and left handed on the left, after some experimenting I do what works and looks natural on my hair.
I did get a bit of hair stuck today, it just whir...
Very happy so far
I have only used mine 3-4 times but so far so good! I have a LOT of hair - thick, frizzy (but not curly), hard-to-manage hair. Curling is a pain, because either the curls drop out too fast, or it takes an eternity and my arms get sore. This is pretty simple to use, and the curls last well. The only caveat is to resist the temptation to curl too much at once, and be careful with your angles. If I put too much hair in, or don't hold it the right way, hair can tangle. I wish I could do more at once, I'd save even more time! But as long as you're careful, this is much better than a lot of alternatives I've tried.
Loved it until it stopped working :(
Hair did get stuck but as my hair is quite thin it wasn't a huge problem. Used it almost everyday for a good nine months now it doesn't work at all. Quite an expensive product to suddenly stop working. Will be looking to see is the vassoon will last longer.
It was good, until I had to cut my hair out!
It was great for a while there, as it was quick and simple. My hair had gotten caught before, but it always released straight away before sucking the hair in. The LAST time I used it, my hair got caught once again. However, this time, the machine decided that instead of releasing my hair, it would continue to suck it in and tangle it up further! I had to pull the cord out of the power point, for the machine to stop. Unfortunately, it was too late. My hair was completely stuck inside, and even though we tried to untangle it, my hair was caught f...or good. We regretfully chopped off 25cm (10 inches) of my hair. I may be an adult, but needless to say I cried! My advice is to stick to a curling iron/straightener... unless you want a crappy, overpriced haircut. Then by all means go ahead and purchase the Rusk Miracurl Styler!
I wish I could give this a negative review
Holy moly do not buy this!!! No! I had to cut off four inches of a section of my hair because it got stuck and there is no way to get it out!!! I tried everything, including taking it a part and nothing worked. No reverse function? Are you kidding me?
Taken me a while to get use it!
I never spend to long doing my hair. This was brought for me as a Christmas gift.
After using it several times now I really love the finished product.
I find it takes me a while as I have thick long hair and I find you can't put too much hair through it at one time. But now I have mastered it I use it almost after every wash:)
Fast efficient loving it
Bought it, following my sister recommendation, and haven't looked back. Once you get s hang of it, such as small sections, how many beeps you want to hold, direction of the curls, it's even better. Love it, it's my go to especially when don't want to straighten my hair, gives glam look in less than 20 minutes. Have been using it for about 3 years now.

Questions & Answers
is this good for long hair?
confused..Because they using to very short hair in Utube..
Does hair have to be totally without product (hairspray/styling product) i.e. just washed and dried or can I use it the day after or even 2 days after washing hair i.e. having used some (a little) product on my hair?
I think it's probably fine with hair that's had some product, especially if it's e.g. hairspray that's been brushed out. I've used it with small amounts of hair product in place. I'm no expert, though!
I only use it on clean hair. Product tends to heat differently and could burn your hair as they are not designed for that heat level. The only product I use is a heat protectant. Other Products makes your hair more likely to tangle in the barrel and that is bad. Just follow the instructions for perfect hair. I have hair down to my chest now and I never brush through product in my hair like hair spray etc because you risk hair breakage and hair takes forever to grow. heat protectant serum and your rusk miracurl are all you need and some spray after.
What is the size of the roller within? I'm looking for something to create soft curls - that last. With my super thick & abundant waist length hair, I usually spend close to an hour to roll with my curling tongs and that'll only last a few hours and cost me a few burn marks.
The diameter of the curl isn't very large but the staying power is amazing. I curled my hair in Wednesday night and it was still curly in Saturday when I washed it; a GHD style often only lasts about 1-2 hours on my hair. For very long hair the pieces need to be thinner, which could slow you down. I'd find a stockist and go in for a demonstration to see if it suits you.
