Protect hair from the heat with Paul Mitchell® Hot Off The Press® Thermal Protection Hairspray. Work in one- to two-inch sections. For fine to medium hair, use one- to two-inch sections. For thick, coarse, curly or wavy hair, use one-inch sections.

To straighten: Hold the flat iron horizontally and slowly glide it down each section from roots to ends.

To curl: Hold the flat iron vertically and glide it through hair, winding the hair away from the face to create a single curl. Add tension the same way you would when you curl a ribbon.

    I bought a Paul Mitchell flat iron in 2005. I thought it was a bit pricey . Boy was it worth it!! It is still working 16 years later! I use it twice a week and sometimes as a touch up. I would definitely recommend this flat iron

    I first found these flat irons in 2012 at the salon as well as a friends house. Easily one of my favourite flat irons although it’s really only good for that. I bought my own in 2013 and only am just retiring it now because my hair isn’t staying straight anymore and mine has also recently broken. I had the older model so I can’t speak for the new ones but if they are truly an improved version than it is most definitely worth the buy!

    Let me tell you, this is the BEST straightener I’ve ever had. I had an older version of it and it died last week, which I’m sad about. But no joke it lasted me TEN years, so 10/10 well worth the money. :)

    I bought this flat iron for myself as a birthday present to myself. I had always used a Revlon flat iron from Wal-Mart, and just got tired of not getting the results that I wanted. I absolutely love this flat iron! I have been using it for around a month now and have no complaints. I love the super long cord, I love that the buttons are on the inside so I don't accidentally hit them while styling my hair. It is so smooth and styles my hair just the way I want. I highly recommend!

    I absolutely love this iron, it does a beautiful job. For my damaged, colored, keratin treated etc. girls (and boys) this iron does go down to temps lower than 250F! I know I was looking for something that I could use at 220 F and it wasn’t exactly clear in the information booklet I downloaded before purchasing. Highly recommend.
