its a bit smaller then my old one but it was about time i get a new one. so i went to Miami Florida and went to Dolphin Mall. and got pulled into a chair next thing i know to get a part of my hair straighten when my hair was already straight ha well anyways i came home with this baby. it has a good warranty for it so if it breaks you can get a new one. also whenever i want i can get my hair done for free there!
