As you will learn in this how-to, the SmoothCurl450 Marcel Curling Iron heats up to 450°F and includes a versatile Marcel Wand that adjusts from left-to-right for easy styling – no matter which hand you use and digital controls for precise temperature setting plus a “steady when ready” indicator light that lets you know when the iron has reached it’s desired temperature.

Infused with Ceramic, Ionic, Tourmaline and Far Infrared Heat technologies, these irons feature a smooth glide barrel that won’t pull or snag hair. Built-in safety features include: auto shut-off capabilities after six hours, a balanced non-slip stand to rest in place without sliding or tipping over, and a smooth touch handle for maximum control and ease while styling.
