Salon Supplies' Product Reviews: Babyliss Pro Perfect Curl

Genna from the Salon Supplies Team in Southampton decided to film herself trying out the Babyliss PRO Perfect Curl for the first time.

Even though it was released a couple of years ago now, the Perfect Curl still proves that it’s at the forefront of innovation and technology for professional hairdressing. It makes curling your or your clients’ hair quicker and easier saving you time and money as a business. Genna estimates that curling her entire head of hair with straighteners or tongs takes an hour whereas the Perfect Curl cut that time down to just 15 minutes.

Everyone by now has heard of the Perfect Curl. It’s received rave reviews from professionals and retail customers alike as well as picking up an Instyle's Best Beauty Buys Award 2015. And now (21st of April ) The 2016 Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation.

The only negativity surrounding the Perfect Curl has come from some people that have extremely thick hair who struggle when using it and also from some users having issues with cheap knock-off, copycat products. This is a perfect example of you get what you pay for as Babyliss has put a lot of time and effort into making this product as safe as it can possibly be.

Obviously we can see how the Perfect Curl can seem a little daunting as your hair is sucked into the heated chamber but as Genna explains, it snags less than your average straighteners and when it does snag (due to your hair being in the wrong place) it just safely spits your hair back out and there is no pain at any stage in the process.

The Perfect Curl is the professional equivalent of the Babyliss Curl Secret. If you’re thinking about which version of this tool to go for here is a quick evaluation:

Curl Secret:
  • Consumer Product
  • 2 Heat Settings (low and high)

Perfect Curl:
  • 3 Heat Settings (190 degrees, 210 degrees and 230 degrees) – for a variety of hair types and coloured hair
  • ‘Left Curl’ or a ‘Right Curl’ direction setting
  • Curl tightness setting
  • Ionic Conditioning built in
  • 2.5m Swivel Cord – great for moving around clients
  • Comes with chamber cleaner for longer life
  • Automatic Shut OFF
