An honest review about the Tyme curling iron.  Sharing the challenges and the benefits of this tool.  Make sure to check out videos on how to use this helpful tool.  Once I learned how to use it, the Tyme curling iron was hands down, my favorite curling tool I have ever tried!  If you are looking for a way to curl your hair with less time and effort, the Tyme curling iron is an excellent tool.  A Tyme curling iron makes an excellent gift!

tyme curling iron reviewI have been watching Tyme Curling Iron promotions in my Facebook feed for quite some time.  As someone who struggles with finding time to do much of anything to my hair, it intrigued me. I am excited to share my Tyme Curling Iron review with you today.


I should start with the difficulties.  The only thing that is somewhat difficult about the Tyme is simply learning how to operate it.  If you are like me, you might try to use a Tyme Iron the same way you use a regular curling iron.  This will get you nowhere fast.  I continued to straighten my hair, wondering where I had gone wrong.  Finally, in frustration I put the curling iron to the side and ignored it for a week.

Before I complain too much about how difficult it was to learn how to use the Tyme Curling Iron, I should probably share that my minor annoyance was 100% avoidable.  Tyme offers an amazing service free of charge to everyone who purchases a Tyme Curling Iron. Professional stylists are standing by just waiting to skype with new Tyme owners.  Believe it or not, they do not charge a thing for someone to walk you through using your new tool!  This is not a mass share video, but a real person!  Professionals will watch what you are struggling with and share tips on how to make it work. This is included in the cost of a Tyme Curling Iron.  I don’t think there is any other curling iron out there that offers you such a service!

Position is key to getting proper results with the Tyme Curling Iron. You can use this tool as a Flat Iron, a Curling Wand, or a Curling Iron.  Straightening is easy and faster than with my high end straighter I already owned.  The curls are a bit trickier and really depend on the starting position and the angle at which you pull.  Once you get the rhythm and position down it can be very quick!  It takes me less than 10 minutes to curl all of my hair.  The Tyme curling iron can be used on long and short hair to create several different styles.  Tutorials online and a Tyme Stylist can help you achieve any of these looks.  I have had a ton of fun learning new styles now that I have the hang of it.

tyme heat setting

One thing that I found to be a bit weird is that you cannot change the heat setting on the Tyme Iron.  It is set at 400 degrees once you turn it on.  Coarse hair like mine has little problem with a high heat setting, but finer hair may not. My daughter’s hair is quite soft and fine. Pulling the hair through the iron faster and using a good quality heat protecting spray did the trick.  While my hair holds curl well no matter what, my daughter’s hair does not.  I am not sure why, but Tyme Iron curls are the only curls that last in her hair.  Sponge curlers, regular curling irons, and rag curls all fell flat; but not Tyme curls.

loose waves with tymeMy apologies for the selfie; but see those loose waves? Loose waves take me about 5 – 10 minutes total!

Readers and friends have asked what the difference is between curling with the Tyme Curling Iron and a regular hair straightener.  I feel like the results may be similar, but it is faster with the Tyme.  Less time in the bathroom is good enough for me, but I also felt the curls were more consistent.  I personally like a fairly loose wave, but I have also produced really tight curls with the Tyme.  Once I learned the correct way to use the Tyme Iron I felt it was simply easier and therefore took less time.  While I do not understand why, curls last longer for me when I use the Tyme Iron than when I use another tool, it also holds better on my daughter’s fine hair.

  1. Thanks for the very detailed review! Your tutorial will help a lot when I get my own curling iron! 🙂

  2. Lauren says:

    My sister in law has one of these and she loves it, but it looked intimidating to me! This is an awesome explainer and I love the loose curls!

  3. Thank you for sharing! I love saving time doing my hair as well! I’ll have to check this out.

  4. Looks like a great curlling iron but I would be worried with my 12 year old using it since it is so hot all the time.

    • kate says:

      It is hot but only on the inside, not like a curling iron or want- more like a straightener – I would certainly supervise until she gets the hang of it =)

  5. Kristene Hanson says:

    Great tutorial. Looks like a great curling iron. Not sure I like that I cannot control the heat setting however.

  6. Brittney says:

    This video actually is different from all the videos I’ve seen, none of the tyme videos show them twisting the iron that much, enough that you have to use two hand to do it. Maybe that’s why I’m not getting the desired curls? I will try!

    • kate says:

      I think it really depends on the user – this is what works for me. I really love it, but I ALMOST gave up on it because I could not figure it out! Their videos didn’t really help me, but the person I was able to video chat with was so helpful! I hope you learn what works best for you – thanks for your comment!

  7. Natalie Cutcher says:

    I have a problem with my hair not staying on the plates. It always seems to fall out so I can’t keep a curl. It also feels a little uncomfortable in my wrist to hold it and twirl it out. Do you have any suggestions to help me?

    • kate says:

      I know that those who work at Tyme are REALLY helpful! You can even skype with them! I found it to be a bit heavy – but it goes so fast that I really like it. My hair is kind of coarse, so it holds a curl really well – but I know everyone has different hair – maybe they can suggest a product for your hair type?

  8. Joanna says:

    You mention the heat setting. I want to touch on that. I just got my tool for Christmas and I swear whether I put it on lowest temp setting or highest temp setting it seems to be the same! Both burn my hair even though I’m sliding through and not holding my hair between 2 hot plates…. Any comment on that? I think maybe my tool is defective ‍♀️

    • kate says:

      I think there are so many factors – I would contact Tyme directly and discuss your hair type and the possibility of your Tyme possibly being defective

  9. Anastasija at Thirsty for Tan says:

    This Tyme Curling Iron is truly a game-changer – it not only delivers beautiful curls effortlessly, but the step by step tutorial makes it super easy to use, even for beginners like me!
