My old Solia straightner (which survived me 6 years!!) got hurt :( I accidentally dropped the plug thingy and it bent the 2 wire thingies (sorry, I don't have the correct terms here lol). But basically, I figured I can't risk it not working on a special occassion, so I got it replaced. With the same thing, only... in sexy red :)
Came with a heatproof pouch for travel...I guess? haha
A close up. Sexy, isn't it? ;)
Really? I did not know that!!!!
My new one on the left, and the old one on the right.
Side by side, the old one has a grip to it, whereas the new one doesn't. Its smooff :)
Yes, it started coming apart a while back. My dad fixed it though, and it still works fine now! haha. So, I'm not chucking it away...keeping it JUST IN CASE the red one goes nuts one day.
I got both of these straightners off of www.folica.com. They are excellent! Fast shipping, excellent prices (much cheaper than buying these items at salons), and they have special offers regularly. I got mine for $64.99 (usually sells for $74.99). This particular straightner comes in the regular Black, as well as Purple, Red, and Pink :) So, of course, I just had to get my favourite color!!
Hope this helps :)
