I have been blessed with straight hair that sometimes turns a little bit wavy due to regular usage of tie bands. I was looking for a decent hair straightener to give it the natural and straight look. Also, I am great fan of curls as it gives my hair a totally different feel. Therefore, I planned to buy a hair styling kit that is not too heavy on the pocket. I don’t prefer to expose my hair to heat on a daily basis. I keep it restricted to some special occasions only. So, when I saw a good offer on this Babyliss 2020CE Fun Style 8 in 1 Hair Styler, I immediately ordered it. I almost got it at 50% discount during the one day Diwali sale. 😀

My Experience with Babyliss 2020CE Fun Style 8 in 1 Hair Styler:
The hairstyler comes safely tucked inside a cardboard package. The styler and its attachments look sturdy and beautiful. All decked up in light purple, blue, silver and white – it looks, as the name suggest, fun! It is quite handy and apart from being fun and cute to look at, it offers good performance too. All the details about the product regarding the product are printed on the packaging and the user manual. It comes with a guarantee of two years and ceramic coating is cherry on the cake.
There is a storage pouch available with the kit for keeping all the attachments safe and intact. The pouch is of average quality, not sure of its durability. User manual is given with step by step instructions for operating each attachment. The swivel cord and attachments have a locking system which makes it easy to attach and remove after usage. The swivel cord has a power button to start and indicator light shows when it starts heating up.
Each attachment rod has heat ready light that turns white when optimum heat temperature is reached. The irons have holding clip attached to its barrel for keeping the hair secured while curling. There is no optimum time mentioned anywhere for reaching the required temperature. It takes around 10-12 minutes for the attachments to get optimally heated to work.
Straightening and Crimping Plates:
The straightening and crimping plates are ceramic coated and hence, prevent the hair from any severe damage. There is secured system button which changes the plate on sliding from straightener to crimper. Straightener is very small compared to normal straighteners and hence, works with very less portion of hair at a time. Also, the time required for straightening the hair is more than your regular straighteners. It works fine with my hair, but then I have somewhat straight and thin hair. People having thick hair or more volume may find it very tedious. This straightener is definitely not for curly hair! Crimping plate works good. But since, I am not a fan of crimped hair, I might not really use it.
When I first saw it, I was not even sure if I would like to use it. But, it made me fall in love with my hair once I used it. It gives so much more volume along with roomy curls. It is definitely a must try if you are looking for new kind of curls. I feel it would work great with long hair.
Both the curling irons are very good at their job. 19 mm curling iron gave me beautiful romantic soft curls, whereas the 16 mm one is great for tight and firm curls. I have used these irons more than other attachments as I wanted to buy the kit mainly for getting curls.
Spiral and Brush Sleeve Attachments:
Spiral sleeve can be used with curling iron for giving well shaped curls. Also, it gives you a guide to achieve perfect, even shaped curls. The edges of the brush sleeve are very sharp and I was not sure how to use it. The instruction booklet suggests it for using to get gentler curls. I did not like it much as I am already getting the required results without it.
