BeansTalk Review: We received the Nano Fuzeion Intelligent Computerized Heat Setting Curling Iron, 1 1/4" First off, it's an impressive looking tool, very substantial. The quality is apparent. We were told about the iron that heats up to 410-degrees, but the one we sampled only went to 210-degrees. We can't find it available on-line so this may be an older model.
We have a CHI Ceramic Curling Iron that's also considered very top of the line and quite honestly, they work similarly (altho our CHI heats up to 356-degrees). The FHI Heat's distinction is that it has the digital readout. The barrel is very different than any other iron we've tried and potentially it looks like it might work quite well, with the right kind of hair.
We have super long hair, and all we can expect is a little curl at the bottom, if we're doing it ourselves. We've had our hair done professionally and it's possible to get more significant curls. Our other issue with the iron is that the up and down buttons (to change the temperature from the start to the high of 210-degrees is right in the way when you're trying to use the iron. I found myself, continually having to readjust the temperature. That awkwardness of accidentally and inadvertently hitting the button can get annoying. That's a design issue.
The bottom line: An obvious quality curling iron, the model we sampled didn't quite suit our hair and the awkward design of the temperature buttons placed them in the way of actually using the curling iron without inadvertently pushing them.
We recommend: You go to a stylist or supply who'll let you sample the newer models of FHI Heat and see if it will work for you. When you're spending big bucks on such an important hair implement, examine all the elements. We sure do. The quality of FHI Heat isn't in question. See if it works for you.
