The Straight Story: Kathryn Tests the Amika Swarovski Ceramic Styler

My naturally thick, wavy hair doesn’t tend to look good when I use a flat iron on it. My hair always ends up looking fried and full of flyaways. I also find that my hair sometimes gets caught in the area between the ceramic plate and the body of the flat iron, which can be painful.

When I received the Amika Swarovski Ceramic Styler, I was skeptical since I haven’t had much luck with flat irons in the past. But after trying this Amika styler, I fell in love with it.

A 100% solid ceramic styler with a 1.25 inch floating plate, this styler is extremely versatile. You can use it to create straight, wavy, or curly styles. Its far infrared technology and its high quality of ceramic makes it gentle on your hair and easy to use. Since the ceramic radiates far infrared heat, moisture is preserved in the hair shaft, which protects the hair cuticle from damage.

The Amika Swarovski Ceramic Styler isn’t just a great tool to use, it’s a great tool to look at it. With a pink body covered in purple blossoms, the styler is also adorned with Swarovski crystals. Once I got over how cute it was, I finally decided to use the styler as a flat iron. I was thrilled to see that my hair didn’t get snagged even once. There was no uncomfortable tugging of my hair for the first time!

My favorite part about the styler was that it heated up really quickly. I barely had to wait to use it and I was able to straighten all of my hair in a short amount of time. My hair was smooth and straight for one of the first times in my life and it didn’t look fried at all.

There were no signs of flyaways either, which to me is completely amazing. I really loved this ceramic styler and cannot wait to use it again. You can get the Amika Swarovski Ceramic Styler at Sephora for $160.00.
