Babyliss Flat Iron Review

Get smooth, sleek, shiny hair with the BaByliss Pro!

There are hundreds of flat irons on the market at the minute and it is really hard to decide which irons to pick.

Flat irons are one of the most important tools of a hair stylists trade, so I always make sure I do a lot of research into them beforehand.

BaByliss irons are really great, they are a well-known brand that has been very popular over the last 50 years.

They are known best for producing innovative electrical products used by professional stylists whether this is in the salon or during session styling events.

I have used them consistently both inside and outside the salon, my clients have also gone on to use them and love them!


  • Durable and long-lasting.
  • Professional looking.
  • Makes the hair sleek and shiny.
  • Temperature controls.

These are just some of the key benefits that I think are really important to have in a flat iron.

There are two kinds of BaByliss plates, these are important to know so you can make your pick.

Titanium plates: These plates are better suited for thicker, curlier hair. The metal plates heat up faster and the smooth plates ensure the hair gets a beautiful shine. Titanium plates are also more durable and are resistant against damage from styling products.

Ceramic plates: Ceramic plates are best for fine, straight hair, as it helps to protect from heat damage. They do this by distributing heat evenly throughout the plates and using an infrared heat which works from the inside out, this will be a lot gentler on the hair.

These are a good plate to pick if you are worried about heat damage, although they don’t work as well on curly hair.

The iron that really stands out to me is the BaByliss Pro Nano Titanium Straightening Iron, it uses the latest titanium technology to give you straight, shiny hair.

I have used this iron numerous times and I really like it!

So, what is so special about this iron?

This flat iron is a really good all-rounder, and it has some really great benefits that will help your hair look amazing!From using these straighteners here are the things I like, and dislike about them:


  • It curls the hair, as well as straightens.
  • Makes the hair look sleek and frizz-free.
  • Work well on shorter hairstyles due to the narrow plates.
  • Have temperature controls up to 450°F, meaning you can personalise them to your hair type.
  • Comfortable and lightweight to use.


  • It does not have a ‘sleep’ button so you must make sure you always turn them off.
  • Can be hard to curl hair on thick hair types.
  • If it is used on the highest heat setting it can be quite damaging for the hair.

All in all, these flat irons, as well as all of the BaByliss Irons, have some really good benefits for the hair and they can create some stunning hair styles, but I would definitely recommend these more if you want a straighter look.

Let’s take a look at some of the other popular BaByliss Flat irons...

This iron has all of the benefits of a titanium plate but by having the thinner plate it makes it good for shorter hair types.

  • Heats up to 450°
  • Plates are slim, which will give you more control.

BaByliss Pro Ceramix Xtreme Straightening Iron

This iron has all of the benefits of the ceramic plates and is really good for finer hair types.

This is one of the more expensive ceramic flat irons by BaByliss, however it is totally worth the investment. The porcelain ceramic plates generate far-infrared heat which is far less damaging than the other heating methods.
