Hmm, good question. My hair is pretty long but it fits onto the barrel. You might have to roll the dice and see if it works for you.

You just have to pick up where you left off. Curl as much as you can without overlapping on the barrel, release, then slip the barrel in to the last ringlet and wrap another strand of hair around. Yes, it's "a lot" of effort, but it's worth it for the results. Think about it - even with a traditional curling iron, if you wrap a whole, long chunk of hair up, the only part that really stays curled is the part at the end because it was exposed to the most heat. You could also blow-dry or flat-iron your hair and curl just the bottom few inches.
My hair is 3 or 4 inches past my shoulders and that is how I do it, works perfectly.
If you look at the reviews on the Sultra Bombshell product page with photo reviews first, you will see a pretty girl with CRAZY long hair that she curled with the Sultra wand.. if she can do it, anyone can.

I have a barrel just like this and hair about 5 inches past my shoulders. I found it really difficult to use for the reason you're mentioning. I would be wrapping my hair around and run out of barrel! Also, I felt like my hair would always slip out of place before I got it wrapped all the way around so it didn't quite turn out. Maybe I need better technique but until then I won't be investing in a barrel that's this expensive. Btw, I love T3 and have one of their hair dryers so I definitely recommend those.
