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).

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. See More
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. See More
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. See More
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. See More
Aside from straightening, it can also be used to curl your hair, due to its rounded corners. This makes it a great alternative to buying a separate hair curler. Simply heat it up, place the iron close to roots, twist your hair towards the back and then twirl the iron until the end section of your hair is flipped downwards. See More
Even though the straightener has ceramic plates, some customers still experience hair being stuck between the plates. This unfortunately cannot be rectified for everyone, since it depends on the hair type. If you have this problem and your budget is higher, then there are other options you can consider, such as higher quality straighteners with Argan oil, for example. See More
Depending on your hair type, it might require going over the sections a couple of times. This is especially true for those with thick or/and curly hair. If you do not mind the extra work, this won't be an issue. See More
For those who have unruly hair, this hair straightener is a good option, as it will straighten even the most stubborn, curly and thick hair. Just run each section a couple of times until the desired result is achieved. It heats up to 230ºC, which works with almost every hair type. See More
Ceramic plates are known for locking in the moisture, protecting the hair color and straightening hair without it being stuck to the plates. It heats up evenly to allow for a smoother run through the hair and ultimately, a smooth and frizz-free straight hair. See More
