BaByliss Flat Iron Review

BaByliss Flat Iron Review - My Versatile Style by Meach

A few weeks ago I asked my Instagram friends to share what they feel is the best flat iron on the market. I was on the hunt, and having used the same CHI flat iron for over a decade, I was clueless. Hands down, there were two brands that received the most recommendations: GHD and BaByliss.

Always the one to research every purchase, no matter how big or small, I decided to take this information to my hair stylist, Jasmine. Low and behold I learned that she used – and swore by – a Babyliss flat iron, too! With all this in mind, I decided to pull the trigger on my own Babyliss hair straightener. The BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium-Plated 1.5-inch Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron to be exact. And I’m excited to share that it’s a WINNER!

Honestly, this is the best flat iron I’ve ever used. Here’s why…

I love this flat iron because…

1. You can straighten a section of hair with just 1-2 passes. 

And I mean straighten. My hair has quite a bit of texture and is naturally on the curly side. So getting it to look straight and sleek is a struggle. Or I guess was a struggle. The BaBylissPRO gets it smoother and straighter than ever before.

2. It’s not as damaging as other hair straighteners.

This goes hand in hand with point #1. The fewer passes you need to straighten, the less heat you’re putting on your hair. Thus, a lower risk of heat damage! As an additional safety measure, I also apply heat protectant to my hair (Neuro Style Prime HeatCTRL Blowout Primer) before I blow dry and style it.

3. It makes your hair super shiny.

This hair straightener has a built-in ionic generator. That generates negative ions, which dissipate water…like moisture that creates frizz. It smooths the cuticle layer, too. So the result is a ton of shine and a frizz-free finish! (Source)

4. It’s under $100!!!

Never did I think I would find a professional hair straightener for under $100. But I snagged the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium-Plated 1.5-inch Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron on Overstock for just $88. Plus free shipping! Truly such a solid value for the quality. I was expecting to pay far more given all the recommendations and that a professional used it. I’m pumped that I didn’t have to break the bank to get something exceptional. 🙂

Although I didn’t need a new curling iron, I did buy the matching 1 1/4 in curling iron (the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium 1.25″ Curling Iron)
because it was only $30-ish! And it’s the exact one Jasmine uses when she does my hair, so now I’m able to replicate the same shiny, loose curls she gives me in the comfort of my own home!


Oddly enough, while doing  my research I learned that BaByliss is actually a Conair brand. If you’ve been following me for a while, then you know I have a ton of Conair curling irons and swear by their quality and longevity. So I’m confident that these “higher end” products will be even better!

>> So what questions can I answer for you all about this flat iron? The curling iron? Drop them in the comments and I’ll be sure to get back to you!
