The BaByliss Ceramic Pro 215 is a compact hair straightener for everyday use. Ideal for those who travel a lot and need a trustworthy hair straightener at their disposal wherever they are. Compared to similary priced straighteners, this one is much smaller, but still has a good maximum temperature of 215C - same as most straighteners and can therefore operate with the same quality.
Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Compact and ideal for travel
It is relatively small, therefore fits nicely into a handbag or holdall. This is ideal for those who are on the go and want to have the option to style their hair wherever they are.
Pro Ready to use anywhere in the world
It is compatible with voltage worldwide, which means no disappointment on your holiday or any worries if the voltage might be wrong. It works everywhere (with the right electric plug adapter).
Pro Delivers good, consistent results
This straightener allows for results more consistent than with other straighteners, since the floating ceramic plates heat up evenly and have a big contact surface. This means there's much hair in direct contact with the plates, at the same temperature, on each run. Ceramic plates also lock in the moisture and protect hair color, contributing to a good final result.
Pro Works well with fine, thin hair
This is a good option for those with fragile hair, since it heats up to a comfortable and less damaging temperature of 215 ºC.
Pro For added security, it indicates if it is on or off
If you are ever unsure if you have left the straightener on or off, checking the power light will help you calm down the worries before you head out of the house.
Pro Quick heat-up time
The heating time is not long: only 60 seconds, which means less waiting before the actual straightening.
Con The electrical cord isn’t long enough to comfortably move the straightener around
As it is quite compact, the electrical cord is proportionally shorter too. This might limit the freedom of movement and comfort during the styling process.
Con Does not come with a protective mat or travel bag
Unfortunately, it does not come with a travel bag or a protective mat, which would make transportation and storage easier.
Con There is no option to adjust the heat
This straightener only heats up to 215ºC, there is no way of decreasing the heat as there are not buttons or options for it. If you require a lower temperature, this is not the right choice.
Con It does not provide the heat required for thicker hair
This straightener does not provide enough heat to fight the stubborn curls or waves, which makes it unsuitable for thicker hairs. It is more suited to finer, thinner hair owners.
Con The plates are very small
It is a compact straightener, and not the best option if you require full length plates. It is not suitable for anyone who straightens on a regular basis and needs a certain quality that smaller plates might not always offer.
