Overview:

The Kristen Ess Flat Iron, sold exclusively at Target, comes at an $80 price tag. It claims to be an incredibly versatile tool with the ability to create sleek straight hair, S waves, flat iron waves, and polished curls. With 4 temperature settings, titanium plates, and one of my personal favorite features, a swivel cord, I had to try this tool!

Comparison to standard:

At 365F, this curling iron gave me amazing results! The plates and packaging are not quite as smooth as the Bioionic 10x (Luxury) or the Conair (Value), but I still would say that the iron’s performance offers a luxury result for a more moderate price tag ($80). In my opinion, this flat iron outperformed the GHD (Luxury) and gave me amazing and long lasting curls even after the gym and a good night’s sleep.

Product Description: (from Target)

TELL ME EVERYTHING

Over the last 20+ years I have tried all kinds of irons, and could never find one that had everything I wanted. This iron combines all of my favorite features, and allows you to create 4 of my favorite styles – sleek straight, s-waves, flat iron waves, and polished curls.

GOLD METAL

Titanium plates with temperature sensing rapid heat technology outperform ceramic, delivering fast, even heat from root to tip, and are corrosion-resistant to styling products

LAID DOWN

Negative ions help lock in moisture, eliminate frizz, and enhance shine, for healthier-looking hair

SMOOTH + SLEEK

1 1/4″ plates adjust to your hair texture for smooth styling without snagging or creasing

PERFECT CURVES

Rounded body easily creates subtle bend, polished curls and textured waves

TO EACH THEIR OWN

Digital display + 4 temperature pre-sets (up to 440° F) allows you to customize the temperature to your hair type and texture

LESS STRESS

Automatic shut-off after 30 min of non-use, a heat resistant cap and 9 ft swivel cord
