Great results on a budget!
This is a great budget friendly straightener!!
I have had high range straighteners that were priced $250+ and older model Remington's growing up. For the price, this is truly a great and effective straightener. I have found where it falls short may be in the life of the straightener, but I guess that's where the price comes into it.. however this straightener does have 3 year warranty. I don't think you can really go wrong??!?!
Anyways, the straightener itself is quick to heat up in 15 seconds it can get to the nine different heat settings up to 230 degrees!! It also has automatic heat shutoff, so hallelujah for no more stressing when you're out wondering if you've left it on!?
I have quite thick and curly hair, though don't like to use the highest heat settings as I prefer to minimise damage and I find when I do my hair usually combats the heat with oil the next day. I used middle heat settings and found it to by very quick and easy to use. It is light so my arm doesn't get sore midway through the process and it works well with copper infused ceramic plates to give you nice and easy straight hair with just one swipe over.
I am yet to attempt to curl my hair with it, and that usually takes a bit of practice to get the curl right, however no doubt it'd also perform well for this.
Thank you Remington and BC for reminding me that sometimes salon quality results can be achieved with a much much lower budget! It's great that remington is allowing all to access the benefits of great salon quality hair styling at home!!
A hair tool that is inexpensive and does what you expect from a straightener.
I have always used cloud 9 and Dyson hair straighteners so I was a bit unsure of how I would get on with this Remington version.
I truly cannot believe how far inexpensive and accessible hair tools have come. This straightener is lightweight, sleek, efficient and wonderful!
The tool heats up incredible quickly and is so lightweight and captures all of my frizzy hair, smooths it out and doesn’t leave my hair feeling dry and burnt. It genuinely felt shinier and softer after use. I have even reached for this over my Dyson straightener because of the ease of use.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a new straightener regardless if they have the budget for much more expensive tools on the market. Super impressed and excited to keep using this tool.
This straightener is everything you would expect from it’s much more expensive friends on the market!
It heats up super quickly and is a breeze to run over hair just once to completely straighten my dry, sometimes frizzy hair!
I like that it has multiple heat settings so I am not over exposing my hair to high temps every day.
The plates glide smoothly through the hair, don’t snag and create a sleek finish. I found that curling wasn’t quite as effective with this product (but that’s what the wand product is for).
Only comment I would make is that the handle gets a little warm on the outside toward the plates which I found out the hard way but if you stay closer to the hinge, no issues!
Smooth smooth smooth
The Remington Copper Brilliance range is a sleek and stylish set of tools which has helped me to tame my lockdown hair - which had been especially tricky since my last hairdressers appointment is long gone!
I have balayaged blonde hair with warm brown tone at the roots and a warm creamy blonde mid-lengths to ends, but foils throughout so it is not completely bleached at the ends.
The Remington Copper Brilliance Straightener feels very nice to hold and the 9 digital temperatures is so good to have depending on how fragile your hair is or what stage of colour it is at. The slim ‘floating plates’ felt really smooth when I ran these through my hair and didn’t ‘catch’ or ‘crunch’ down like some other straighteners I’ve had, have done in the past. The even pressure of the plates means my hair turns out smooth and sleek without any frizz from my shorter strands. My locks felt soft and also stay hydrated the next day after styling instead of dry and straw-like.
Really easy to use and create a nice smooth finish!
Fantastic Budget Straightener!
I’m really impressed with the Remington Copper Brilliance Straightener; I think it’s a fantastic budget straightener! I’ve used a GHD before and it’s great, but I just can’t justify buying a straightener at that price point. That being said, I think this product is nearly as good for so much less money. It’s lightweight so easy to take with you when traveling, it heats up very quickly (about 10-20 seconds) and I found that the heat was definitely even across the copper plates. I also really appreciated that the manual included a temperature guide for different hair types to avoid heat damage, which is fantastic for people trying a straightener for the first time.
New favourite straightener
This has quickly become my favourite straightener, firstly it looks stunning and definitely stands out with the copper colour plates. I couldn't believe how fast it heats up, in 15 seconds from plugging in, it was ready to go. I found it so easy to style my hair doing either wavy hair or a super sleek look. It has 9 digital temperatures settings with the maximum being 230°C. I loved having that amount of options so I can protect the integrity of my hair and customise to which style I wanted to achieve. It is pretty light weight and looking forward to using it for many years to come.
lock in temperature and 60min turn off!
I was lucky enough to trial this Remington Straightener, I’m a big fan of straightening my hair and tend to do it more often then I should. As I have thick hair that tends to get super frizzy, I like to take charge on how I want to present my hair especially when it’s in a ponytail or the little baby hairs that I received after having children. The Remington Copper Brilliance Straightener is copper infused plates that gives fast salon performance results by distributing heat evenly from roots to ends of your hair. I’m amazed at how quick it turns on, like 15 seconds heat up time! With 9 digital temperature settings up to 230°C, being able to change the temperature it’s a huge thing for me. I believe everyone will agree with me that we don’t like to fry our hair and having the option to change the temperature and lock in feature and 60 min shut off feature which is a big bonus, unfortunately not many other brands have this feature so I was amazed at this. It also has a extra long cord, which is amazing especially when you’re trying to straighten the back of your hair and how to twist and turn to make it reach, this extra cord is a life saver. The straightener isn’t bulky or heavy, it’s quite comfortable in my hands. The black and copper bronze packaging is beautiful, eye catching, sleek and looks expensive. Even comes with a pouch to store it in. Super handy if you’re packing it away to travelling or just wanting to keep it outta the way without the cord hanging down. I’m super impressed with how fantastic this straighter is. The whole Remington Copper range is beyond amazing, I’m so impressed with how many features they’re able to pack into such small products. The results are amazing and truly believe each product is a fantastic Christmas product.
Great straightener that’s bang for your buck
I’m a big fan of how quickly I was able to straighten my thick hair with this straightener. i feel like the copper coated plates definitely helped with taming my waves and frizz without the cost of frying my hair (noting that I did use a heat protectant). However, I was not a fan of the placement of the power button switch, it felt a bit counter intuitive to me. All in all for the price though, I think that this straightener is definitely worth it!
Pros: heats up quickly, good heat range, copper coated plates help with protecting hair, tames frizz, comes with long extended wire so you don’t have to be close to the plug point, comes with a travel case which is handy!
Cons: button placement could be better, wish it cooled down a little faster
makes for a great gift to someone or yourself
I have straight asian hair, but it flicks at the ends in crazy directions, so I have used straighteners for most of my adult life. I tend to spend more on straighteners, and have a Remington one which is more than twice the price of this product, however, I enjoyed using this one just as much.
Its very light in the hands, without compromising on quality and doesn't look cheap.
The light up screen is great and easy to read, but the best feature of all has got to be how quickly this baby lights up! Fantastic for mornings when I'm in a rush but don't want to leave the house looking crazy. I've also used it to create curls and waves, and it doesn't a great job.
Fantastic for teenagers or those who are on a budget. :)
I was extremely impressed by the Remington Copper Brilliance Straightener! I have tried many expensive straighteners in my time and this is absolutely incredible for the price tag ($59). The plates are infused with copper, there are 9 different temperature controls and it can go up to 230 degrees! It only takes 15 seconds to heat up and has it an automatic safety shut off after 60 minutes which is amazing , the amount of times I’ve turned the car around to make sure the straightener is off is too many! I have quite thick and curly hair and this straightened my whole head of hair in 30 minutes! I even got asked multiple times if I had recently got my hair done as it was so shiny, glossy and healthy looking!
Simple and light
This hair straighter has a sleek design and is very user friendly. It has multiple settings for fine to thick hair. I find that the 170 deg temperature works pretty well for my medium thickness hair. This straighter heats up very quickly which saves time in the morning. It is very effective at straightening my hair and I find that my hair remains straight and styled till the end of the day. I have also tried curling my hair with it, took a couple of times as I don't really use a hair straighter as a curler. But once I got the hang of it, it was not that difficult. I recommend this product to others who are after a new hair straighter that is simple to use as well as being light weight.
Versatile styling tool
As someone with straight hair, my main use for hair straighteners in the past has been to even out any kinks that may have appeared from different hair styles.
Because this straightener is so light weight and has a rotating cord that allows for more seamless and easy use/movement of the styling tool, I enjoyed being able to experiment with different ways of styling my hair using a straightener. I still need some practice but found this styling tool to be a great way to add waves and curls to my normally straight hair, with the added bonus of using the same tool to get it back to its usual straight appearance if I didn't like the way it turned out. The straightener also comes with a small satin-like storage bag.
Great straightener for a reasonable price
This straightener is great for the price but I personally prefer more high tier straighteners (GHD, Cloud9) and would rather invest a little more money to get the quality from other brands. I enjoyed how lightweight is was and the curved design to create different styles with one tool. However, I tried curling my hair with this and found it looked kinky in some places. I preferred using it to create a sleek straight style or just curling the ends to give a faux blow-out style. The position of the power and settings button on the side of the straightener meant I kept accidentally turning it off while using it.
I think this straightener would be perfect for anyone that doesn’t want to invest a lot of money into their hair tools. I would have loved this when I was in high school and didn’t have a bigger budget to spend on a straightener!
Fantastic little straightener
The Remington Copper Brilliance Straightener is a very simple to use entry level straightener which quickly heats up and straightens hair. My hair is shoulder length wavy, fine and plentiful, and using this straighter I could style my hair in about the same amount of time as my GHD. I particularly liked this straightener to use along side the curling wand to style my fringe and any shorter lengths of hair. Great design, easy to use and feels very well made. All of the products in the Remington Copper Brilliance line are very impressive and I’m extremely happy with them.
Good, not great.
This straightener looks expensive, which is nice when it’s sitting on your vanity! There are quite a few features that I like, such as the multiple heat settings, the ability to lock the temperature and that it heats up very quickly. For the price, it does a good job!
Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem to straighten my hair as quickly as my Cloud 9 straightener and I had to go over each section a few times to get it close to as sleek and smooth. I tried turning the heat right up, but it did feel a bit too hot on my hair and didn’t seem to improve the speed at which it straightened.
At a pinch, it’s good! But not great.
Silky straight hair!
This hair straightener is so sleek and luxe looking! And the results are amazing to boot! It smoothly straightened my hair which is quite stubborn when comes to hair straightening. It doesn’t get too hot but to a comfortable yet effective temperature! Straightens hair to perfection with this easy to use straighter!
Hair doesn’t feel dry after using this straightener instead it feels soft and silky.u
It’s super easy to use, and it is not heavy to hold.
Gives you the salon results at the comfort of your home.
I don't have a lot of experience using a hair straightener if I am completely honest. I have semi straight hair and love to curl it with a curling iron so when I received this hair straightener I could finally try out the curling trick with a hair straightener and I was actually really surprised how easy it is to use. I really appreciated the temperature settings and how fast it heats up (no more than 15 seconds!). It also turns off after you leave it idle for 60seconds of no use so you'll never have to freak out that you've left it on. It didn't leave my hair frizzy or fried after use which is how early amazing and the reason I usually don't use hair straighteners. I am no professional but I do regard this product (and the other Remington copper brilliance line) as budget friendly professional devices. I would absolutely recommend for anyone, any age, any skill level and hair type!
Sleek and Smooth Hair
I have naturally thick and straight hair so when I use a hair straightener, I'm not looking so much for the straightening ability but more so how sleek it can make my hair. I love that this hair straightener does just that, it smoothes out any kinks in my hair but does a great job it making my hair look very sleek and smooth.
The straightener comes with multiple heat settings and is lightweight which I find makes it much easier to work with. It heats up quickly and the heat panels glide effortlessly through my hair. Compared to other hair straighteners, the clamp isn't as stiff which I personally prefer because it gives a much more natural look without being pin-straight.
The straightener is very affordable and delivers great results for those who want to straighten their hair, make it look sleek but without being pin-straight. I actually think this is a great option for those who are looking to try out a hair straightener and isn't committed to spending hundreds on a GHD.
None to done in minutes!
With the lockdowns this year, there has been less reason to get ready for catch ups and events, but I’ve still taken the time to style my hair for the obligatory Zoom calls and Facetime catch ups. This straightener heats up quickly and is really easy to use. It’s good not only for straightening, but also for simple waves and loose curls. I can go from barely presentable, to “done” in a matter of only a few minutes! I highly recommend this straightener as it’s amazing value for money and super easy to use, even for those less-talented people like me!
Surpassed all expectations!
Wow. I’m so surprised at how well this straightener worked on my thick hair!
For many years, I’ve been under the impression that the more expensive straighteners were the only straighteners that could tackle my thick hair, however the Remington Copper Brilliance proved that theory wrong - it straightened my hair perfectly and just as well!! I was left with straight and silky smooth hair *insert mind-blown emoji here*.
This straightener also comes with so many amazing features. My faves are the 15 second heat up time, which has come in handy when I’ve had to rush somewhere but needed to look decent, and also the automatic safety shut-off after 60mins, which puts my anxious mind at ease.
I also love that it’s light to hold as I have so much hair to get through and you can’t go past the beautiful copper accents on the straightener making it look chic.
Overall, this is such a great buy and you definitely get everything (plus more) that you pay for! Highly recommend.
