CoolCanucks Blog Contest ~ Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron Review & Giveaway!!*CLOSED*

Friday, December 31st, 2010



I am beyond ecsta­tic to intro­duce the New Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron, the Ulti­mate Hair Styling Tool.

Whether you choose to curl, flip, straighten or add vol­ume and body, the G3 is the only styling iron you will ever need!!

The Karmin Salon Pro is per­fect for both pro­fes­sional use as well as at home with fea­tures such as flash quick heat­ing, a tangle-free swivel cord and tem­per­a­ture set­tings for all hair types. Styling your hair is vir­tu­ally effort­less and results are smooth, silky, shiny hair.

This ultra glossy and super sleek styling iron is avail­able in 3 dis­tin­guish­ing and entic­ing shades, choose the one that reveals your per­sonal style.

Your New Karmin Salon Pro Includes:

•• Karmin G3 Salon Pro Styling Iron with 1″ Pure Tour­ma­line Ceramic Plates
•• Instruc­tion Man­ual
•• 3 Year Man­u­fac­ture Warranty



The most com­mon types of plates on a hair straight­ener are metal, glass, ceramic, tita­nium and a tour­ma­line ceramic blend.  The most expen­sive vari­ety of hair straight­en­ers are the tour­ma­line and ceramic blend.  These straight­en­ers are also the high­est qual­ity and leave the hair smoother and straighter than the other varieties.

The Karmin G3 fea­tures Tour­ma­line Ceramic plates that heat quickly and evenly.  Tour­ma­line is a semi pre­cious gem that, when heated, cre­ates more pres­sure that helps flat­ten the hair when straight­en­ing.  This qual­ity ceramic elim­i­nates “hot spots,” or sec­tions of the plate that are hot­ter than oth­ers.  It’s impor­tant to main­tain even heat to straighten the hair effi­ciently and to avoid frizz.

Another ben­e­fit of the Karmin G3 Pro Styling Iron is its adjustable heat.  Stud­ies show that 370 degrees Fahren­heit is con­sid­ered the opti­mum tem­per­a­ture for most hair types. Because the G3 offers adjustable tem­per­a­ture, it’s easy to choose one that works best for you.  It ranges from 180 degrees Fahren­heit to 420 degrees Fahren­heit, which makes this prod­uct a great fit for everyone.

When the G3 is heat­ing, there is a red light by the tem­per­a­ture wheel that illu­mi­nates.  Once the straight­ener has heated to the desired tem­per­a­ture, the light will shut off.  As you style with an iron, it comes in con­tact with your cool hair and loses some of its heat.  This is nat­ural and to be expected and does not sig­nify a low qual­ity straight­ener.  A qual­ity hair straight­ener is char­ac­ter­ized by how quickly it regains its heat to main­tain your cho­sen tem­per­a­ture.  This is to ensure that it will heat and straighten your hair evenly.  The Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron imme­di­ately begins to reheat, and the red light illu­mi­nates once again, to indi­cate that the heat­ing mech­a­nism has been activated.

When decid­ing which hair styling prod­uct is the best fit for you, remem­ber to con­sider the size of the plates.  The most com­mon flat iron size is 1” plates, like the G3.  The 1” plates are a great size that offer the abil­ity to straighten even long hair quickly, but also allows the user to style or curl the hair.

I am extremely impressed with this flat iron and I absolutely rec­om­mend it to anyone! gets a huge thumbs up from me, and their cus­tomer ser­vice skills as well as deliv­ery time were beyond outstanding!
