Yes, but only one glove is included so you have to switch it between your hands when you switch working on each side of your head. It still gets super hot through the glove, but It's way better than not using the glove.

Yes, the glove is included with the iron. However, it's bulky and awkward to use. They package the iron with a larger glove - probably to accommodate the general population. I don't use the glove and never have a problem with burning my hands or over heating my fingers.

Question
What temperature does this iron heat up to?
I am tempted to buy, but only if this iron gets super hot! My hair is about a yard long and does not hold a curl. (Stick straight asain-girl hair) I'd love to hear about anything about person experiences w/ this iron!

450 degrees Fahrenheit. Hair burns at 451 degrees Fahrenheit, so it's extremely important that you use a thermal protectant before styling.

So funny, I just posted a review and it sounds like I have very similar hair (long, asian hair although yours sounds a bit longer than mine). It doesn't say the temperature it gets up to (you can't adjust it) but this thing curls my hair like nothing else I have tried and the curl will hold for days (loosening up each day), whereas with other irons, it will hold for several hours only. It's super awesome, but I do prefer the 1" to the 3/4".

Hi there, the box says that it heats up to 182C/360F. I also have straight Asian hair and the Bombshells (I have both sizes) are the only curling iron that has ever worked for me. Keeps the curl all night and into the next day. It's cut my curling time down from an hour to (at my fastest) 20 minutes. I highly recommend this curler!

This iron heats up really really hot, it's very nice that way for thick and fine hair. Even pin straight hair hold this. The only problem I find is when it gets too hot! So for thick or course hair it seems to work pretty well.

answer 5
The iron gets hot in under 30 seconds. Give it about two to three minutes for it to get really hot. I have fine hair and it curls perfectly and lasts all day and into the next with this iron...something my hair would never do with a traditional clip iron.

Tighter curls, and they also will loosen up if you want looser curls. However, the 1 inch will only provide larger curls.

One it works on shorter hair easier, and it just gives your hair a different look just on the size of the curls alone.

answer 3
I think the size you want depends on the length of your hair, and the style of curl you are after. Although my hair is a couple of inches past my collarbone, I got the 3/4" size because I do have layers. Also, I wanted a tighter curl. I have wavy to curly hair, and find this works well to touch up spots that aren't as curly as others. FYI, the curls do relax somewhat. I think if I had gotten the larger size, the curls would have been too loose for me.

It works much better on long hair!
You must be able to wrap hair around the barrel at least three times to have the beautiful curls the iron boats.

Voltage?
What is the voltage on this iron? Can it be used in Europe? I travel frequently and need an iron that will work both in the US and in Europe. Thanks!

Quick update to my previous comment. They offered to replace my iron despite it being outside the warranty period. Their customer service really is amazing. Love the product and the company.

I used this in the UK. Worked fine at one location (a home) but blew out at a hotel. Sadly I was a couple months outside my warranty and they don't do repairs so I'm out my favorite curling iron. Their customer service warned sometimes universal converters don't mesh, but I used the same converter in both locations so be careful.

It is supposed to be "universal voltage". I took mine to Australia recently and it stopped working (USA is 120V, Europe 240V and Australia 220V) but the Sultra customer service was great and they sent me a return shipping label and I am waiting for the replacement tool! Worth the effort, it is a great tool - but I would contact the customer service at Sultra about the voltage.

I don't know why it can't be shipped, but I was able to purchase mine at a Sephora in Edmonton. It was out of stock for a really long time though so you may have to call around to see.

Not sure.... But can you try going to Sephora and buying it there?
Some products are manufactured in the US and can't be shipped to other countries.

I don't think so. There is an on/off switch but I'm pretty sure it doesn't turn off automatically after any length of time.

Yes, eventually. Sometimes too quickly when I take too long or I get interrupted while I'm doing my hair. The light flashes while it's heating up, gets solid when it is ready, and goes back to flashing if it shuts off.

It heats up in about 30-60 seconds. Just plug it in, turn it on, then put in your thermal protector and brush throughout. By the time it's dry, the iron will definitley be hot.
