I've never used one but Conair makes an Infinit Curling Wand that looks almost identical--except with a tapered end. It's under $50 and the reviews online are great!

YES THERE IS!!! The CONAIR iNFiNiTi (and yes, that is the way it is spelled out on the iron?(: )This iron does not have a comb on it, it has a black tip on the end so you really do not need to use any glove,and it has it's on temp. control where you can put it on 310*F, 330*F, 360*F, or 400*F. One of the great things about it is that ,the rod starts off smaller at the bottom, for smaller curles if you want, and is big the rest of the way up the iron!!! I love it . I get every look that this product gives you, seriously!!! The price is the only differrence(besides the glove use!!). At the time I found it on sell for $18.00, but know I think it may have went up into the $20's. still better than over $100.. Right?! I swear by it!! But to each there own!!!!

All curling irons that Sephora sells are going to be in the same price range. This tool is definitely worth the money, is made well, and will last you for years. It's faster and easier than any other curling device I've ever tried. It's soo worth it!
The 1 inch professional Tourmaline Ceramic Infiniti by Conair. It heats up to 395 degrees farhenheit. Like the one pictured here, it too does not have a clip. However, it does have bristles which do help guide and line your hair up to help you achieve the kind of curl you want. It has multiple heat settings. Because it gets so hot when using it on higher heat settings, I would try to find a safety glove (your own cheaper alternative) on your own to use with it. Before I used the conair, I considered my hair hard to curl - now I use the conair on the higher heat settings and have been very happy with it. I use it with a spray thermal heat protector and this has helped keep my hair in good condition. I got mine on clearance for $20, but have seen it online at Ulta I think for about $30. If you want all over waves in a short amount of time, I can also recommend the Bed Head Tourmaline Ceramic DEEP WAVE. Also use with a spray thermal heat protector to keep your hair in good condition. I believe it is at Ulta.com online also, for under $30-$35. They have two similar ones so be sure it's the DEEP WAVE, as this one provides bigger, more natural looking curls.
As most people own a flat iron already, that would be a more inexpensive alternative. The only problem is, a flat iron will not achieve uniform curls that this product can!
Go to a "videos website", and look up: how to curl hair with a flat iron. Most people who use this method have very long hair, tourmaline 1in. works the best.
Yes.. There is a less expensive alternative. If you don't mind sleeping on them, sponge rollers work great. At night I wash and blow dry my hair, leaving it slightly damp, put on the sponge rollers and wake up to beautiful bouncy curls. In the morning you don't need to do much but toss the curls around or pull them back. Saves time getting dressed in the morning. I just bought a set of 48 sponge rollers for $10 .
