Hair Fun Fact

On average you lose about a hundred hairs a day? Yes 100. But don’t worry, it’s normal!

Which BaByliss Hairsetter?

Question: 
Which BaByliss roller set should I get? I like the 30 roller sets, but one is vertical and one isn’t, are they very different? – Teri via phone

Answer:

We get this question a lot. If you’re looking to create curls, you definitely cannot go wrong with a Babyliss hair setter, it’s permanently parked on my list of all time favorites. (FYI, If you’re looking for a steam setter – join team Caurso – I’m on that team too!) But back to BaByliss.

Babyliss Pro 30 Ionic HairsetterYou’re comparing two very similar items, and from a technology standpoint, both hot roller sets are loaded with similar benefits; ease of use and exceptional performance for long-lasting, carefree curls of every size. They both feature quick heating times, and gentle, far-infrared heat to provide the maximum heat transfer from roller to hair. Super important when creating curls. Cold rollers just don’t cut it…or I should say curl it.
  
Babyliss Pro 30 HairsetterBoth Babyliss sets also have an assortment of the same 30 rollers in the following sizes: 6 Small 3/4 inch, 8 Medium 1 inch, 8 Large 1-1/4 inch, and 8 Jumbo 1-1/2 inch. These rollers have Ceramic technology for faster styling and eliminate hot spots which can cause damage to your hair. Plus the ceramic technology smoothes the hair as it curls, and wipes out the frizz so your curls will last forever – or at least until you wash them away.

That being said, the main differences between these two units are the design, the ionic activity and the heating times.
The Babyliss Pro Ionic hair setter has a space-saving folding arm that allows for vertical positioning and a vertically split cover for easy roller access. This feature was probably originally created for the stylist’s workstation to provide easy access to the rollers without using a lot of room. We know those salon workstations are puny. The folding arm is also extremely convenient for the home user who has limited counter (and storage) space.

This set also features dual ionic ports which means it creates negative ions to curl your hair faster and smoother than ever before. So if you are looking to curl with ionic technology, this set is for you. This set also heats up more quickly, 5 minutes, compared to 20 minutes of the non-ionic set. Both should be used on dry hair only.

Aside from these few differences, I know you’ll be happy with either set! To read more about each product visit our BaByliss section for the entire selection of hairsetters, curling irons, hair dryers…
