Pro The variable temperature setting is suitable for all hair types
The S3500 comes with a 30-setting variable wheel that allows the user to select the most optimal temperature for their hair type. It varies from 150 ºC (302 °F) to 230 ºC (446 °F) and is suitable for all hair types - those with finer hair should stick with temperatures between 150 ºC (302 °F) and 200 ºC (392 °F) and those with thicker, curlier hair should chose temperatures from 200 ºC (392° F) to 230 ºC (446 °F).
Pro Very quick heat-up time
With a heat-up time of only 15 seconds, there is practically no waiting time and the hair straightener is almost instantly ready to use. It is great for those who are on the go or do not have much time before getting ready and leaving the house.
Pro Longer plates straighten larger areas of hair
This straightener has long floating plates (110mm) that enable users to straighten large amounts of hair with each pass. They also provide a more even coverage, delivering smooth and consistent results. It's an ideal appliance for those with long hair that struggle with little plates.
Pro The plates leave hair frizz-free and smooth
This straightener is a better version of the usual ceramic straighteners, since it uses tourmaline and ionic technology within the plates and emits non-damaging infrared heat, which straightens hair gently by distributing the heat evenly. The result is frizz-free, salon-smooth hair.
Pro It is safe to handle when still warm and has added security to prevent accidental burns
This straightener's heat proof pouch means it's safe to store it directly after styling, therefore protecting the straightener, the surfaces, and the skin. It also comes with a plate lock which keeps the plates closed and helps prevent burns on your fingers when handling it.
Pro Automatically shuts off when not in use to prevent potential damage
If, for some reason, you finish straightening your hair and forget to turn this straightener off, it turns off automatically in 60 minutes, therefore preventing any potential fire or hazard.
Pro No need for a voltage converter
Can be used worldwide, since its voltage is compatible with every country you might decide to travel to. You do not have to worry about it needing a voltage converter in order to work.
Con The plates do not always glide smoothly over hair
Even though the plates are coated with ionic tourmaline coating, the hair still might get stuck between the plates. It is most common with thick, curly hair.
Con Non-round edges will leave a line across your hair tips
The edges of the plates are not round and, since they are quite sharp: there might be instances when you can see where you started straightening hair from, due to lines across the base of the hair (near the roots).
