Corioliss C3 Ultimate Straighteners review


Today I’m reviewing the Corioliss C3 Ultimate Straighteners. I purchased these about 2 months ago and by now I’ve used them on my own hair as well as on my lovely clients. I have straightened, curled, flicked-twisted the hair with these and so far I can honestly say the Corioliss C3 are definitely one of the best straighteners I have ever used!

Corioliss state that the C3 is the next generation of heat styler. The titanium technology is supposed to give the ultra-smooth plates effortless glide, while the pro variable temperature adjustment allows you to straighten, curl, flick and twist in one effortless pass. Well, let me tell you that this peace of kit definitely does what it says. I love the extra long floating plates which help create very sleek, effortless styles. The leopard print design took it to a whole new level for me – as I now have another item that perfectly fits in with all my pink and animal printed tools which many of my clients love. I always get comments on how colour co-ordinated i am. It’s so cool that Corioliss have combined superb quality with excellent design.

Another plus is that the temperature control which varies from 135 to 235 degrees C, which means these straighteners can be used on hair extensions, very fragile / fine hair and on very thick, unruly afro-carribean locks. The ergonomic, slimline design and 2.5m salon approved swivel cord mean that the iron is versatile, flexible and easy to use. The LED digital temperature display mean that you can take complete control of your styling and achieve sleek, glossy and versatile looks in the blink of an eye.

The Sleep Mode will come in handy too so you won’t have to worry whether you have switched off those straighteners – so that’s another tick in the box.

The Professional 360° Swivel Cord is great if trying to multitask while getting ready for a night out.
A cherry on the cake for me was the matching leopard print heat-resistant travel pouch.

So are these really so good? Well, as far as I can see these are definitely great! I would rate them 5 out of 5 for sure. One thing that annoys me though, is the position of the buttons which is one the side of the straighteners and sometimes (especially when you curl the hair) you can accidently switch them off when turning the plates round. Brilliant results outweigh the unfortunate minor design flow but i’m sure this is something that Coriloiss may address in their next generation of straighteners. So my GHD’s can now gracefully retire…
