Regardless of the negative ions and infrared heat that result in a remarkable flattening, I doubt this heavily stoned iron can also curl… Or maybe it does, and in-between the curls you’ll find the crystals from your $600 Corioliss straightener. Would you have someone else straighten your hair or you rather do it yourself? (with or without crystallized flat iron)
Regardless of my disdain for anything blinged up, Corioliss’s iron may be as rewarding as it is ambitious. The young company, started in 2002 considers itself a leader in beauty technology through their unique and innovative products.
The Corioliss C2 iron straightener has Titanium plates (per usual, classic iron straightners I was familiar with – such as ghd – use ceramic plates) getting from 0 to 210F in just a matter of seconds. The hair is perfectly straightened in just one pass (per usual, the classic ceramic plated iron straighteners need at least two-three passes to get the optimum result). The usual infrared technology, negative ions and sleep mode are also featured on the Corioliss straightener.
A non-Swarovski encrusted straightener costs $210 at Corioliss (while a classic ceramic plated ghd costs around $150). However, a mini version was also made available for a fraction of the price: a ‘travel mini C2 Swarovski Crystallized Corioliss’ you can see below or opt for the original one and buy it here.
At the end of the day, it’s still high temperature treatment on your hair, regardless of the number of ions released, the fancy heated plates and the infrared fancy technologies.
