I have owned this styler for 6 years and have had absolutely no trouble at all with it. I use it every morning. I saw this on drugstore.com and decided to order a backup just in case something happened to my old one. I cannot say enough good things about this styler. It has made styling my short straight hair a breeze. Gone are the hot curlers, curling irons, flat irons, etc. I wash, mousse, and spray a thermal protectorant and dry with dryer for a jiffy. Then I use the hot air styler. It gives the right amount of body and takes away all frizz. I can make curls also. It is so fast and easy that I am sorry I didn't try this years ago. I am so grateful they are still making this model. Another plus, is no tangling! You can even take the barrel off to wash if you need to.

I have long hair. The styler delivers a great curl on the ends. However, it takes a long time to dry with just this styler. Several times the bristles have gotten caught up in my hair, even on short pieces. One day, I spent 30 minutes trying to get the curler out of my hair because I didn't unroll it perfectly. I thought I was going to have to cut it out of my hair!!! I've had the a Revlon styler similar to this one (with roundbrush bristles) that never got my hair caught and wish I would have spent an extra $6 to get that one again.

      I had an identical hot air brush 3/4 inch barrel that lasted for years! Although I was disappointed I could not find another 3/4 inch barrel, it fits okay on this 1 inch barrel! Sooo happy about it!

        Comments about Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Styler, 250W VS433C, 1" Barrel, 1 ea:

        This brush is the answer for me when my hair is shorter. I have fine & limp hair and after a quick "shot" of my regular blow dryer, I use this to shape my style, and it gives just enough lift so I can skip the curling iron step. I do use a heat protector spray before I use the brush and it has damaged my hair much less than using a curling iron. Will keep using it when my hair is shorter. (I also have a similar brush with a larger diameter when my hair gets longer in the winter) I have arthritis in my hands and this is easy for me to use, even when my arthritis is acting up.

            After washing and putting on styling product, I dry my hair (a section at a time) with the air styler. That leaves my hair smooth with a little wave. If I want to go straighter, I then use a flat iron.
            However, I do have a two inch barrel from one of these that I exchange. I don't think you can find them anymore. The one inch works OK, just takes a little longer.

              Advertised as a 250W blow brush. It fulfills
              that specification, but I wish I could find one with more blow power--about 600W would be ideal.
              I find I need to use a regular blow dryer first and then use this for styling only.

                I have permed for years and decided to stop. This hot air styling brush gives my hair body and curls the ends under perfectly. I need one that's 1/2" now. Great styling tool and I'm glad I purchased it.

                This is a great hair styling brush. So light and easy to use. I've tried many other brands but this one is the best. Just what I have been looking for. It doesn't get very hot so it is gentle to thinning hair.

                      The barrel is small and it takes too long to dry the hair. By the time the hair was dry it was limp and lifeless. InStyler works great. I won't try to switch again.
