Such an innovative and cute curling iron!

As someone who is useless at hair tongs, this is a god-send! I have an iron hair curler but can never get the angles or the size of curls I want right. This Curl Secret Optimum is a dream come true, it does the work for you! i love how quickly it turns on / heats up and how it comes with a resting heat pad. It can be intimidating to use because of the whole sucking thing, so its worth watching the 6 min tutorial video on youtube. Its actually easy to use! Just need to follow the right directions. Love this hair curler! Show details

Great way to curl hair

I think this curler is great it does what it says i only struggled with doing the back of my hair it was tricky to see how much i was putting in i have thin hair so it didn't take a lot of time 5 beeps and it had done curling i really like that it didn't take to much time. i definitely would recommend it to others its a great way to curl your hair after having had my straightened for a long time i like that its easy to do something different. Show details

Nothing special

great look and weight and easy to use settings. easy to use on one side but a lot more difficult on the other. didnt find it particularly frizz free. dont think it was time saving or easier than a regular curler. Was worried about my hair getting stuck but didnt seem to be a problem Show details

Really easy to use

I loved the ease and speed of this curler. My favourite thing is that you can change the direction of the curl which is perfect as I always struggle to know which direction I should hold other curlers. It's also great to alter the heat setting and so much easier to avoid burning your hands. Such a user-friendly tool to create perfect curls in 3 different styles. Show details

Stay at home mum feeling fabulous!

as a stay at home mum to two under two I dont have much time to do anything for myself but so far I have managed to quickly jump in and curl my hair and look and feel great. I have really long hair so it usually takes me forever and I always manage to burn myself on other curlers. I love that there is different curl settings to give you different looks which allows me to have curls for every occasion which normally I would stick to the one type because I wouldnt know how to do it. with the great design there is no way I could burn myself or my hair this is definetly my favourite curler ever

Easy, nice curls, love it!

i found it easy to use. i loved that it has different settings and beeps when the curl is done. Not as shiny as i expected but the hair feels smooth and curls hold well.

Really easy to use and curl

I really struggle curling my hair so decided to give this product a go. I was very happy with the results, it does what it claims and does create really pretty curls. It was easy to use after I read the instructions. I would definitely recommend this product to anyone that can't curl like me.

Great but very time consuming

This item does work and for the people who are saying their hair got tangled and all that obviously didnt read the instructions very well. My hair got caught the first time but then I re read the instructions and got it right the second time. The curls are very nice and pretty but the part I hate is waiting for it to curl. Very very very very very very very time consuming also a bit heavy to hold up in one spot for a while. Takes a really long time to curl. Especially with hair past your shoulders. If your hair is natural straight like mine or straightened before hand it will start to uncurl and about 5 minutes maybe before you even finish. It works just a waste of time

Great and easy to use

Makes styling hair very easy. Can be time consuming with long hair. 11 year old able to style her own hair. Can get tangled but only if you section the hair to thick. Show details

Don’t not buy

This product is supposed to have an anti tangle mechanism but let me assure you your hair can still very much get tangled. About half way through doing my hair it swallowed my hair and I almost had to resort to smashing it or cutting my hair. Thankfully I Managed to pull it out although it was very painful. I tried again and the same thing happened. I will never use this again it’s horrible. Do not waste your money. Show details

Good product makes curls easy for non-professional

The curler is a good product but you have to know how to use it well. It looks great on long hair but with short hair you could still work with the ends. The best thing about using the curler instead of a straightener for curls is that for someone like me I wasn’t afraid of getting burns.

Very dangerous

Purchased the vs sassoon multi curl i didnt read reviews unfortunately i wish i had. Tried multiple times to curl my daughter's long beautiful hair only to have it continuously being tangled and ripping out much of her hair. Will definitely be asking for a refund. So dangerous

Amazing

Although only small amounts of hair can be curled at a time, it effective to get the. curl you want and is the only product that will curl my extremely thick hair. choose type of curl you want which is great from for the classic natural beach wave.

Do not use on long hair

I have long hair and the second curl I tried to create my hair got stuck and tangled with that awful burning smell! I panicked and was crying. My partner had to practically unscrew the device to untangle my hair. I am too frightened to use it again and am extremely disappointed. I threw it straight into the bin!

Awesome product!

This works miracles on my hair. Normally my hair is really hard to manage but I can now curl my hair in no time thanks to this curler! Would definitely recommend. 10/10

Easy curls

This product is good for curling even long hair. Did take some used to getting used to. Helps if you divide hair into sections.

Not as fast as traditional curling irons however much more suited to a curling beginner like me!

Would not recommend

Do not use with long hair it gets all tangeled & stuck now matter how well I brush it or how little hair I put through. The curls also look terrible, nothing like the photos on the box! Very disappointed

Good product

I love mine, I dont use it all that often as I have alot of hair so it does take a while.

Yes every now and then it jams. But i have had no trouble unravelling it.

The curl stays in place all day which I like! Considering my hair always “drops”.

Happy with my purchase of about a year or two old!

can damage your hair :(

It takes a lot of time to do entire head of hair. I have medium to long hair. You have to make sure you only do a small amount of hair each time. If you make a mistake of putting too much, hair will get caught in the curler. It's hard to untangle and by the time you do, hair has been burnt/damaged.

Great curls, much patience required!

I received this VS Sassoon Curl Secret as a gift this christmas. I have medium length layered hair so I was quite ecstatic about receiving this as present so see if i could rely on this as a 'safer' option of curling my hair instead of using an exposed curling wand. I was surprised to see the results to see the curls quite bouncy and hair still looking so silky! However, it did take me a good 30 mins to complete my whole head of hair, compared to an curling wand which takes approximate 15 minutes. Nevertheless, I am quite pleased with the product.

Love My Curl Secret

Love the VS Sassoon Curl Secret. I have tried GHD, hot rollers and the conical style curlers but this is by far the easiest and best. Yes, my hair sometimes gets tangled inside but it is easy enough to remove when you get the warning beep. I have very straight, slippery hair so I could imagine this wouldn't work quite as well with coarse hair that tangles easily. Takes a maximum 20 minutes on my long hair and I get a good hairstyle for 3 days with it. Love it!

Not Good

I have naturally straight hair, about average length maybe a bit longer and every time I use the curler it gives me extremely lose waves even when it is on the highest setting. I am very unhappy with this.

Curls without effort, curls stay in place, easy to use

Love this product, takes 10-15mins to do my hair. Simple to use, must follow instructions though. Sections must be small or it beeps & stops. Easy to remove hair just have to open up & ease hair out of chamber, this happens if one uses big sections of hair or one is rushing & don't get enough hair in to start properly. Once you get the hang of it it is a breeze to use. Does get very hot, so can't pack away until it cools down.

How long have you got to get ready?

Purchased a VS Sassoon curl secret some time ago now however I really don't have the time to use it, it takes forever to get the look I want given that I can only do very small portions of hair at a time, it won't work otherwise and it gets caught within. If you have an hour it works great, the curls are nice and stay in. Also, I find it awkward to do the back of my own hair and my arm starts getting tired holding it up for so long.

I wouldn't recommend spending a heap of money on this product, wait until it's on special.

Curl secret

The vs sassoon curl secret is not a bad product, it curls your hair quite nicely, it just takes a bit of time as you can only do a little bit of hair at a time. Also my hair gets caught and stuck quite alot in the actual device.

My ultimate curling hack

I cannot use a straightener to get curls, so I decided to try this. Oh. My. Goodness! This is the best curling tool I have ever used hands down. It is easy to use and it curls like I have just been to the salon. The only small (very small) downside is that you can't do big sections of hair, or else it will get stuck. Besides that, it is light, you can travel with it, and I don't pay to get salon curls if I have a special occasion anymore.

Have to be patient to get the best curls

I bought this from Target last week. Easy to use but only small clusters of hair can be curled at one time. Have to have lots of patience. But very good results at the end.

It’s okay

I really love this curler it's so easy, fast and convenient, I only hate that sometime my hair gets stuck haha ouch! I think if maybe they made the curler bigger so you can curl thicker amounts at a time

Unsafe product

When I first used this product I thought it was amazing. Until my hair got jammed while the heat almost burnt my scalp. I gave it another go a few weeks later thinking perhaps i did something wrong. But while midway the same thing Happened. I almost resulted in cutting my hair to release it. It heats up to a high degree and your hair can very very easily get jammed inside. Strongly recommend against this. It is not safe

I love it!

I purchased this when I had about shoulder length hair. As I have very thick& straight hair, it usually took me more than 30mins to finish with normal ordinary curler.

With this one, it took me max 10mins!

However, my hair is quite long now, and it's so much harder as I can only have very small strands to put in to the barrell..

Still, I love this product, so easy to use, you don't have to be an expert to curl it as it'll do it for you and you get gorgeous curls!

I did my friend's pre-wedding hair and she loved it too!

Great Product, So easy to use!

This is the best hair curler that I have ever purchased! so easy to use and quicker than using the regular curling wands. Hair can get a little stuck if you try to put too much hair into it! But if you follow the easy instructions hair curls like a dream!
