I love reviewing styling products.   With my stubborn,  sort of wavy – sort of straight hair I really need something to help me get it in shape.  Not just any styling tool will work either.  My hair is pretty thick so it has to be one that will get hot enough to have an effect.   This Gurin Salon Model hair straightener can be adjusted all the way to 450 degrees which works perfect for hair like mine.  (It also has a low temp setting if you have fine or thin hair too.)  I am also a big fan of the super long,  swivel cord.   I couldn’t be happier that more and more companies are using the swivel cords.  It’s such a big help in keeping from getting all tangled up in the cord and definitely makes it less awkward to use.  As you can see from my before/after pics I got really good results with this hair straightener.  My hair turned out straight and smooth and looks so much better than if I would have just blow dried it.


My favorite thing about this hair straightener is it’s size.   The paddle is small enough that you can easily straighten your bangs without fear of burning your forehead but it’s still large enough that you can do fairly wide sections of hair on the rest of your hair.  It also works great for getting those stubborn “baby hairs” around your neck line.  I’ve tried some straighteners that the paddle was just to big to get a hold of those,  so that was a big plus for me!     It is built to last, works wonderfully and even comes with a pretty red silk carrying case.   If I were you, I would snag one at this awesome price before they realize they are selling them to cheap.


Enter to win a Gurin Salon Model Hair Straightener from Bella’s Blog.  One lucky winner will win this awesome styling tool.    Good luck!

Since I already have a hair straightener I have decided to give this one away.   Please keep in mind that the winner will receive the same hair straightener that I used for this review.  While it has been used a couple of times for review purposes it is still like brand new and will be packaged as I received it.   This prize will be coming from Bella’s Blog and NOT from Gurin.   (Gurin has nothing to do with this giveaway so please do not contact them if you have questions)  Please keep things fair and only use one email to enter.  I will not honor a win if I think there is cheating involved.  (Thankfully,  this has never happened on my page since I have such awesome fans,  but I had to say it just in case)   You can enter using the Rafflecopter widget below and I wish you luck!

  18. I enjoyed the review but what i liked the most was the before and after pictures of your hair, the straightener made a big difference, I have the wavy /straight also, and actually the straightener was much cheaper than i expected it to be, thanks for the review .

    • bellahogue13 says:

      Thank you! And I made a huge difference. I am truly shocked at the price myself, they are sort of selling themselves short. Good luck!
