In this article, we will discuss basic design features of the Mestar Iron Pro, lack of authenticity, performance problems , and where do you buy one. We will also show you some reliable alternatives .
See what conclusion we came to about The Mestar!
The tale of Mestar Iron Pro
The Mestar Iron Pro has a similar body design to that of a name brand product. But don’t be fooled, they are not the same thing. In the beginning Mestar Iron Pro was widely promoted. Then Mestar got some bad reviews and as a result, they are hard to find on the internet for purchase except on eBay.
When we recently looked for this product, we got conflicting information about the specifics of what it does or doesn’t do:
Some features we are not sure about
Originally this was marketed in a rose gold color. However, now you can find irons with the Mestar brand that are black. Some Reviewers also mentioned that iron they received was indeed black.
Mestar Iron Pro heating plates are supposedly made from titanium, with ceramic and tourmaline coating. We could not confirm this. But The one constant thing that seems to be true is that the plates are made from ceramic. Ceramic is suitable for fine hair providing a lower consistent level of heat
Temperature memory (it’s supposed to remember what setting you had it on when you shut it off) The manufacturer doesn’t specify if you have to leave it plugged in or not, for it to remember.
For use on wet or dry hair. Also we could not confirm that this iron was especially designed for wet hair. Using an iron of any kind on wet hair is NEVER a good idea no matter what brand you buy

The infamous learning curve
We are accustomed to picking up a tool and within minutes we get the results we want.
- With the Mestar Iron Pro and ALL 2 in 1 stylers You MUST learn the technique for curling your hairOtherwise, you will be disappointed and frustrated with your purchase.
Quality and Performance
All features aside, it seems to give you some Beach waves if you can master the technique.
Let’s consider the bigger picture of manufacturing. One thing to remember is, the price of a product reflects the effort put into development, production along with some intended profit.
It may turn out that the iron doesn’t have the same exact features , performance, quality, or longevity as another more expensive model. That’s because it was made with less expensive materials, and this is why it is more affordable. You get what you pay for.
It is unreasonable to have the same expectations of a budget brand like the Mestar Iron Pro as you would expect from a name brand iron.

I lost confidence in the Mestar brand, mainly because of the conflicting information and lack of transparency.
