I love this straighter! Before I went off to college I wanted to have a straighter that was easy to use, fast, effective, and wouldn't damage my hair like other straighteners. the SinglePass delivers all of this! It heats up in less than a minute and is very easy to use when styling. It was a investment, but I'm glad that I did get it because I have never had any problems with it. I would defiantly recommend this to anyone with a busy lifestyle. I am usually able to straighter my medium length, slightly wavy hair in about 10 minutes with the SinglePass.
