BARBAR 2300 TITANIUM-IONIC FLAT IRON 1-1/2″ – Trying a new flat iron is like going on a first date; experience has taught you what you love, what you hate, and what you need.  I’ve been using heat to straighten my hair on a semi-regular basis for the last five years, and I know exactly what I don’t want: long styling times, scorching heat, clunky handling and lackluster results.  What do I want?  My dream flat iron is light, works quickly, and leaves my hair shiny and smooth in record time.  Hello, BARBAR, I think I might love you.

The 1-1/2″ Titanium plates with ceramic heater are big enough to straighten quickly and effectively but still small enough to get to those tricky little face-framing hairs.  Working in sections, I was able to straighten all of my thick, long hair in about 10 minutes with a fabulous outcome.  The ion generating function left my hair soft and shiny.  I love the quick adjusting temperature up to 450 degrees and digital display, and a swivel cord makes for easy maneuvering.  Ionic ventilation holes make wet styling possible, but handle with care.  By some weird force of habit I tend to grab the end of the flat iron with my free hand and definitely caught some steam coming from those holes.  The BARBAR 2300 comes with a handy travel pouch befitting a flat iron that’s designed for universal use  with 100V-240V and temperature display in Fahrenheit or Celsius.  The automatic shut-off setting is a godsend on absentminded mornings.

FINAL VERDICT – GGI (GOTTA GET IT) – At $165, the BARBAR 2300 is a great investment.  I did the math, and between money saved on blowouts and time saved styling my hair, this flat iron quickly pays for itself.
