The best part about this iron is that it heats up so quickly; it gets to 400 degrees in less than two minutes! The iron is the prettiest shade of rose gold and has gold plated titanium plates. I was so excited about the color when I opened the box, #guilty! It takes a little bit of time to learn to use the iron to curl, but once you get the hang of it it's *so* simple. There's some really awesome tutorial videos that I watched to learn, and after watching a few it made me realize how easy the iron is to use. You'd think it's more complicated than it is, which is pretty mind blowing!
TYME makes it so simple to give you more time (get it?!) and gives you the prettiest and quickest curls - whether you have short/long/thin/thick hair and want a lose beachy look or tighter curls, you can do just that with TYME.
The beauty of a two-in-one
I may have an addiction (or obsession) with trying different styling products, so I have a drawer full in my bathroom of straighteners, curling irons, etc! The absolute best part about this two-in-one iron is how easy it is to travel with it!! I usually take my straightener, curling iron (with multiple barrels... AKA airport security hates me!) on trips but now that I've learned to love the TYME Iron, I never have to pack more than one styling tool again. #blessup
The TYME Iron even comes with a travel case making it so easy to pack! It takes up nearly no room even with the cord.
Quick and easy styling tips
When I'm in a rush to get ready, my TYME Iron is *always* close by. Even if I'm doing a quick bun/up-do, I curl the ends of my hair to make my bun look pretty - plus curls make high buns stay in better! The same goes for half-up top knots, high/messy ponytails and effortless curls.
My favorite styling tip when you need to be ready in a hurry is to do lose curls by curling mainly the ends of your hair. It looks pretty and it's quicker than curling every piece in a tight curl and waiting for them to loosen and relax. This is how I do my hair on a regular basis with my TYME Iron:
Quick curls have never, ever been easier! I personally like my hair curled more than straight with my face shape (and I have to worry less about frizz!) but that preference likely depends on your natural hair. I've also found that using texture spray before doing my curls with my TYME Iron make the curls last longer and curl easier!
My curls with the TYME Iron also tend to stay much longer than they do with other curling irons; I'm not sure what magic was put into this iron, but whatever it is, it WORKS! It's extremely simple to do touch ups with this iron too.
My favorite hair styling products
Healthy Sexy Hair Leave-In Conditioner: I use this *every* single day! It helps to deep condition and strengthen your hair and it makes my hair so shiny. I love the scent, and use it after every shower when I comb my hair.
Pantene Root Lifting Spray Gel: this is my favorite product to use in high-humidity weather! It gives added volume to your hair and it makes curling my hair in humid weather a legitimate breeze.
TRESemme Beauty Full Volume Flexible Finish Hairspray: hands down the best hair spray, ever. I use this every day no matter what I do to my hair; it works wonders with curls! A little bit goes a long way and it doesn't give your hair a sticky feeling to it. I spray a few spritzes into freshly curled hair and it works like magic.
MoroccanOil Treatment: any time my hair is feeling or looking extra dry, I use a little bit of this and BOOM, silky smooth hair in literally minutes. I use it as needed after towel drying my hair post-shower and most especially when I curl my hair, I see a difference in the silkiness and texture. It's my dry winter/summer sun damaged hair life saver!
