Big Hair is Only Minutes Away with GS Professional Dual Pro Iron.

How would you describe party hair? For someone who has straight, fine hair, my answer’s easy: big bouncy curly hair. For my birthday last month, naturally I curled my hair. I did it with my GS Professional Dual Pro Iron 2-in-1 Flat Iron and Curling Iron ($189.95) and just loved the results.


GS Professional Dual Pro Iron 2-in-1 Flat Iron and Curling Iron – plates

It took 42.1 seconds to heat up to the default 360F straight setting, which is the recommended setting for in-between easy-to-straighten and thick, wavy hair. You can toggle between three modes — Straight, Curl, and Straight+Curl — with a quick press of the power button, and you know exactly what mode you’re on because the words light up. Also, the exact temperature is shown in the LED screen.

I know I should’ve taken pictures of these components lit up, but just imagine red light for straight, blue light for curl, and a pretty blue LED screen. #bloggerfail


GS Professional Dual Pro Iron 2-in-1 Flat Iron and Curling Iron – lock

When you want to use the curling iron only, you can also lock the plates in place. Since I’m used to curling my hair with a flat iron, I do my hair by clamping it in place with the flat plates, then twist the iron away from my face to curl the hair. The iron does come with instructions on how to get spiral/corkscrew curls, loose curls and waves, and volume or flip, so if you’re a total hair appliance n00b (technical term), I think you can still use this iron easily.

I do have a complaint about this iron: I find that the titanium plates tug and pull on my hair more than my previous flat iron. I think this might be a deal breaker for someone who has a sensitive scalp, so beware! My personal motto when it comes to my hair is “no pain, no gain” and I have a pretty resistant scalp anyway, so this doesn’t bother me too much.


Behold my super straight hair, curled with GS Professional Dual Pro Iron.

My next-to-impossible-to-curl hair, treated with my trusty Aveda Phomollient, was still bouncy and tight on day 2 right before I took a shower, so I am absolutely ecstatic about this. Oh yeah, I used it to wave my hair in this FOTD as well. :) All-in-all, the GS Professional Dual Pro Iron is a awesome hair tool and a life changer for this Glitter Geek.

    I love it!! So pretty! I love how it’s not frizzy! Whenever I curl my hair it just frizzes up. This iron does a great job!

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      I know. :) With my regular flat iron my hair frizzes up, too, when I curl my hair. This is a good one.

    Totally agree on the curly hair! Most people always want straight hair but I definitely feel like curly hair is just so much more fun :) I suck at curling my hair though :( looks so cute on you!

    WOW it looks amazing on you! I too have super straight hair, I remember once asking my hairdresser to blow dry my hair ‘volumy and curly’, he asked if my hair could curl easily and I was like yeaaah course! turns out, it doesn’t. bless him and his overeager barrel brush! x

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      Awww get yourself Aveda Phomollient. It changed my life. Best volumizing product ever.

    ooooh nice! Almost as big as my hair can get LOL!!! I hope you do more looks with it, I wonder how well it straightens – I use my flat iron to creat loose waves (when I’m not lazy).

    • http://www.glittergeek.ca Arianne

      I know! I got Elaine hair weeee! Whenever I have time to do my hair this’ll be the tool that I’ll use. :)
