The BabylissPro Nano Titanium U Styler hair straightener is a lightweight styling tool that has preset temperatures for you to choose from. It heats up quickly and has floating plates and rounded edges for additional styling options. A long swivel cord and a simple interface eliminate everything complex, letting you get right to straightening without the fuss.
This hair straightener has titanium plates, which have the capacity to carry more heat than other plate materials. The U Styler reaches 450 degrees Fahrenheit, so it is ideally suited to thick, coarse or curly hair, as titanium can scorch fine strands.
In our hands-on testing, the plates heated up in just over 30 seconds, which is faster than most of the other models we reviewed. A quick heat-up time means you don???t have to wait long to start styling your hair. It also stayed hot during our testing session, so you also won???t have to waste time waiting for the iron to reheat in the middle of styling or worry about patchy straightening. It also straightens effectively within two or three passes.
This BabylissPro is one of the lightest flat irons we tested, weighing only 8.35 ounces, so it shouldn???t tire your arms as you style your hair. However, some of our testers commented that it felt cheap and not as durable as other models. It has narrow 1-inch plates and a slim design, which, along with its easy-to-grip design and built-in thumb rest, makes it easy to manage. This straightener also has floating plates which absorb pressure so your hair is never pressed too hard between the hot plates. The floating plates will help heat your hair more evenly and reduce the possibility of heat damage.
This flat iron has a 9-foot cord; this gives you some room to move around while you’re styling. It also has a swivel plug, which automatically adjusts when it encounters tension, helping keep the cord out of your way while you style. A handy power light lets you know if the device is on or heating up.
The BabylissPro Nano Titanium U Styler has a simple design and interface, which is good if you don???t like the fuss of digital screens and long lists of features. This lightweight device heats up quickly and stays cool while the iron is hot. Its simple style, limited temperature options and cheap feel, however, prevent it from being a top contender.
