Description: This sleek flat iron comes in four colors (black, red, blue and purple) and offers titanium plates with "ionized technology", touch screen controls, automatic shut-off, a non-slip grip, and a heat-resistant textile swivel cord. It's available in either 1" or 1.5" (we both have a 1.5"). You can set the temperature anywhere from 310°F - 450°F (150°C - 232°C) and it comes with a lifetime warranty if you register it on their website (www.yourtheorie.com). The listed specifications are single Voltage: 110-127V, 60Hz and power: 45 watts. Ours came in attractive cases that can be used to store or travel with the flat iron.
For me, this straightener is a life saver! I’m always in a hurry in the mornings and with this straightener I can just turn it on, brush my teeth and then straighten my hair; there’s basically no wait time! The first couple days I was pretty stumped by how to get the straightener’s touch screen to unlock and stay unlocked long enough for me to set the temperature but you quickly get used to not having the buttons that ALWAYS change temperature on you when you're in the process of straightening your hair like with a lot of other straighteners! So even though it was hard to figure out how to use the touchscreen in the beginning, you realize you gotta take some and give some!
One of my favorite things about the straightener is the case it comes in, its a nice leather rectangular box type case and it looks classy and isn’t too hard to fit the straightener back into. Although the straightener is most definitely my favorite, the only flaw to me is the touch screen because, like I said earlier, it is pretty confusing when you first use it but after awhile you get used to it (although I have had the straightener for almost three months and still haven’t figured the auto switch off setting!).
Also, the colors are fantastic I have the blue one and Christine has the purple one and they look stunning. Wasn’t the biggest fan of the red one since its more of a crimson but the blue and purple are pretty electric colors and make the straightener look very sleek and professional.
I am absolutely loving this hair straightener! I have super thick hair and it normally takes me forever to straighten it, but with this Theorie flat iron I can do it so much faster! I've been using it for about 3 months now and I only have to divide my hair into maybe 2-3 layers so that saves time, plus I only have to go over my hair once and it is straight! With other flat irons it usually takes at least a couple runs through the straightener before it is as straight as I'd like. Plus, this one heats up practically instantly so no more waiting around while your straightener warms up. And it hasn't once snagged my hair yet - and you can imagine that ALWAYS happens with other straighteners on my super thick hair!
I also love the touch screen with the built-in lock so the temperature doesn't change on you (it took me a while to figure out how to work it the first time though!), and there are no protruding buttons or anything. Plus the swivel cord means it has never gotten tangled. And, the fact that both it and the case are so pretty doesn't hurt either!
For me the only thing that could improve this flat iron would be instructions that show you how to use the touch screen settings! We had to look online to figure it out and as of yet there's not a ton of info out there!
All this being said I am positive that this is well on it's way to becoming the best flat iron of 2013!
