Everyone loves babies. They’re cute and mini-sized. You just can’t help wanting to pick them up and hold them, whether they’re boys or girls, puppies or kittens, or heat stylers.
Yes, I DID just say “heat stylers!”
Conair has created three new “baby-sized” tools to style your hair that may not be as cute and cuddly as a baby or a kitten, but you will not be able to resist picking them up and holding them (for great hair, anywhere). And like many women, you will crave at least one of these “babies” as soon as possible! There’s a Conair MiniPRO Curling Iron $17.99; a Conair MiniPRO Compact Hot Rollers $19.99; and my favorite, the Conair MiniPRO 2-in=1 Ceramic Styler $29.99. Maybe your biological clock isn’t going to tick wildly for these tools. But my point is, these Conair hair stylers are irresistible! Mini-sized tools are a must-have if you need to touch up on the go, or if you travel (who wants to pay for all that extra weight in a suitcase, or use much needed room in your carry on for bulkier, full sized electronic stylers)?
These Conair MiniPRO heat styling tools are not just affordable, they come will all the bells and whistles of their larger sisters. All of them offer dual-voltage so you can really use them just about anywhere. They heat up nearly instantly: 90 seconds for the rollers, 30-seconds for the curling iron and ceramic styler. and they have heat-resistant travel pouches (cute ones) that let you style, and store, without fear that everything around it will melt. They have actual on/off switches (many mini do not) and these are lighted, so you know if they’re on (these get HOT and you don’t want to touch them, and you certainly don’t want to forget and leave them on). They also all have a limited 2-year warranty.
One of my favorite flat irons is the full sized Conair 2-in-1 ceramic styler. Now there’s the You Style 2-in-1 Ceramic Styler MINIPro and I’m loving this one, too! Flat irons straighten your hair, but this particular flat iron has outer edges that are curved, so you can create curve ends, waves and even curls, just by twisting your wrist one way or the other. The plates have ceramic technology to distribute high heat, evenly and efficiently (so you style faster and avoid more damage to your hair). The plates are 5/8″ — big enough to handle a chunk of hair about 1″ wide and 1/2″thick. This may slow you down a bit if you have a lot of hair, but it’s a tiny (pun intended) price to pay for toting a mini instead of a mammoth! Use the flat plates as you would any flat iron, but when you flick your wrist and wrap your hair around the barrel, you can create flipped ends, waves and curls in literally, seconds. This heat styler is blue-themed, from it’s blue body, to it’s attractive, gradient blue, zippered, heat pouch (with blue metal lock&key pull tag). This is not a toy. It works as well as the big guys. Who says small things can’t be beautiful?!
I also love the Conair MiniPRO Curling Iron. This tomato red-themed heat styler has a matching white and red, floral print, sippered heat pouch, featuring a red metal lock&key pull tag). Inside, is the most amazing mini I’ve ever used — a true curling iron that works better than many of the full-sized tools I’ve used. It has a 1″ barrel with ceramic techology to heat up fast and evenly Simply wrap small pieces (about 1″) around the barrel as you would with any curling iron, and hold for 20-3- seconds depending upon the type of hair you have, and the tightness of the curl you want. It is that easy and that fast. If you like to change things up or only like curls, you won’t imagine ever traveling anywhere without this one, again. And, it’s so affordable, you can keep one for home and travel (even if travel is just to the gym) and one in your desk at work for last-minute touch-ups.
For traditionlists who love curlers and a hot set, Conair has even come up with a miniPro heat styling set of hot rollers for you to love. This set is housed in a really attractive, black and white floral print, soft-sided, coated nylon case with handle and clear top and black, metal, lock&key pull tag). . the rollers and the base unit are lipstick red, just for fun. There are ten rollers in three sizes: four small, three medium, and three large. An internal pouch in the case houses ten wire roller “pins” to hold the rollers securely. The rollers also have “starter strip grips” to help you grip hair and roll up more easily and smoothly. The entire unit in the case is only about the size of two decks of playing cards. Amazing, but true! I rarely need “Hollywood” hair, but if you’re a heat-set type girl, you won’t believe how fast and easy it is to get the style you crave, in literally, just a few minutes.
Perhaps now you can see why I am claiming these amazing baby-sized products are too tempting to ignore. They give you almost instant results, cost less than a cheap dinner, and they’re by Conair, so they’ll give you the quality and performance you want, for years. I’m smitten!
