I love to add curls and volume to my hair for special occasions or just to change things up once in a while. My hair is pretty close to pin-straight so in order to achieve a good look I need a pretty powerful tool. In the past I was using my flatiron to create waves and it worked well, but I absolutely love the Curl Active in place of this as it’s a better tool for the job.

Here are tope five things I love about the Rowenta Curl Active:

    1. HighTechCurling™ Technology: perhaps the most notable feature of the Curl Active is the self-spinning, motorized barrel. It really makes a big difference in creating the perfect curl. You simply secure your hair at the end with the on-handle triggered clip and press the rotation button and the rest is done for you.
    2. Barrel Diameter: The titanium barrel is the perfect width for on trend curls. At 1 ¼ inch width, it creates loose, chunky curls rather than small ringlets. The barrel is coated with a tourmaline-boosted ceramic coating which makes gentle, infrared heat so it’s safe for your hair.
    3. Style Options: The barrel can rotate either right or left so you can create different styles of curls.
    4. Temperature: I also love that there are two temperature settings because I have thin strands and too much heat can be damaging. You can choose 350°F for thin hair or 400°F for thicker hair.
    5. Safety: I don’t have to tell you that 400°F is hot so I love the safety feature included that causes the barrel to automatically spin back when it reaches the root so it never touches the scalp.



I’m not a very hair savvy person. I’ve never felt I can style my hair as good as they do at the salon and I lack the coordination it takes to blow-dry with a round brush. With this in mind, I may have a bigger learning curve than most but I did find learning to use the Curl Active a bit trying.

After a few practice runs, I was able to get the hang of it and create a photo-worthy style. If you’re good with hair appliances you should have no problem, but if you struggle like me, plan on a few tries before getting it just right.

The biggest stumbling block I had was figuring out how to get the barrel moving in the direction I wanted but after just a couple of strands I got the hang of it. I also had trouble remembering to reset the clip to the front at the start of each curl, but again, practice makes perfect and I soon got into the habit.



Just in time for the holidays, Rowenta Beauty has partnered with Trade Secrets to offer the Curl Active at a special holiday price. The Rowenta Curl Active usually sells for $179.99 which is a reasonable price in my opinion based on the quality of the tool. Until December 24, 2013, you can buy the Curl Active at Trade Secrets and select salons for $99.95! That is an $80.00 saving!
