Video Review: Instyler Rotating Styling Iron

instylerA few weeks ago I went to an event in Soho, NY launching the new Instyler Rotating Barrel Styling Iron. At the event was celebrity stylist Dean Banowetz, think American Idol stylist for 6 years and stylist to Ryan Seacrest! Upon seeing the demonstration of the rotating styling iron I was quite hesitant to try. I thought it would burn my hands off! After the demonstration Dean could see my look of complete horror and decided to call me up and give me a one on one demonstration. Yay! Can I just say wow! This iron not only straightened my hair but it also curled it. Check out my video review of the Instyler below!  Read more about the Instyler at www.getinstyler.com.
