[Costco] Costco: Testarossa by Conair Hair Straightener

Testarossa by Conair Hair Straightener Model CS2085C
Price: $14.97
Item # 133461
Image


*Purchased at Markham East location, but its probably the same price at every Costco.

Specs:
- Advanced Ceramic Technology
- Instant heat reached in 30 second
- Size - 1.2 inch wide and 4.3 inch long
- 10 temperature settings and on/off button
- Swivel cord

+ 4 styling clips and heat mat (to protect surface)


My review:
I was looking a a good hair straightener for a long time - specifically one that was about 1 inch wide and able to produce waves in my hair as well. Most of the good ones are over $50 even ones and the cheap ones at CT were really crappy - to get a hair straighter under $50, one might have to go on [rfdlink=63]ebay[/rfdlink]...

This hair straightener is really good. It has an on/off button that I really like so that I don't have to unplug. Also when it is ready to use (30 seconds) the on button turns solid red, so I don't have to guess when it's ready. I used the low settings and it still worked really well in my hair. My favourite thing about this straightener is that I can make waves in my hair too! So for me its a 2 in 1 device :)
My friend also bought one and her hair is realllly curly, she says it works really well making her hair straight.

I think this is can be a awesome gift for ladies/men - something of great value for a low price.

Do you have to be a red head to use this?

I just got back for Costco @ Heartland - They have a Testarossa Hair Straightener, but it is $66.99!
Unfortunately, I didn't have the item#, so I couldn't compare.
Anyway, YMMV.........

Personally I like Envirotrends and Trade Secret stores- they always have sales on the professional straighteners.

I have a 1" one from Envirotrends- forget the brand Babyliss maybe? and it heats up to almost 500- but I probably paid $100 for that.

But considering u get hairclips and a heat mat it is a good deal just for that.

Well for $15 it is not a huge loss, but at $60....thats almost salon starting prices!

No go in Newmarket. It is $66.99. The unit is red, though, and looks to be larger.

I just bought the Conair Testaross HAIR DRYER at the Costco downtown location. I also recall seeing a hair straightener there, but I don't recall if it was the same brand.

For the record, I only noticed because my wife sent me looking for a curling iron....if that salvages my manhood in any way....probably not.

Thanks OP! Got one at the Markham location. There were quite a few left, if anyone is interested.

I called the Brampton location and they told me this item is left at Markham and St. Catharines locations only.
