Philips Salon Stylist Hair Curler : My Personal Hair Dresser

by mehak on November 28, 2010

in Haircare

I am a complete duh-brain when it comes to gadgets. Android and symbian just sound like amoebic creatures to me, and im the kinds who will go to a laptop store and say  “I want a blue laptop with the latest features” , having no clue what the latest features actually are . But when it comes to fun gadgets like these, i get slightly obsessed. This little beauty is a hair curler/ waver/ straightener all rolled into one.

Presenting the Philips Salon Multi stylist- it does everything you would want a personal stylist to do !
Not only does it curl, it creates ringlets,  waves, beachy loose curls or super straight hair. The 5 attachments given above are ones that come with it.
1 & 2. Hair tongs to keep your hair back
3.Curling attachment for wide ringlets or waves
4.Thin curling attachment for tight curls
5. Hair straightener
The rod itself comes attached with a wider version of attachment 4 which is great for ‘S’ shaped curls. And all of this comes with a very convenient blue bag to put it all inside. 

Why i love the Philips Hair Curler:
I have used the ringlets/ wave making thingies a number of times and have been blown away by how good this thing is. I have fine hair but this creates solid curls that last and is so easy to use. Iv done loose waves, iv done tight ringlets, iv done ‘S’ shaped curls- it all works

Why i dont love the Philips Hair Curler
One thing i dont like about the Philips Hair Curler is that the straightener doesnt work on my hair. The device is quite wide, and i have fine hair so i need a narrow and slim one to work…this doesnt work on me.

Price: Rs1995/- (40$)
Will i recommend it: Yes! It has cut down on me going to the salon by half. I just whip out my gadgets and start working on what im in the mood for- waves, curls or ringlets. You can actually create all these looks with a single curling rod as well, if you are a seasoned hair curler .There is a different way of holding and positioning the rod to achieve the different styles,and that will require another post altogether, but the single rod is for Rs1300/- and just for 700/- more you get so much so its value for money

All in 1 is a great idea, otherwise imagine buying all the curlers, crimpers, straighteners etc etc. lol… I got them all and now I see this product :(


sandhyaa November 28, 2010 at 3:34 pm

i only have straighter… i saw this product some time ago and i loved it too… 'll buy it soon ….


ClassyandFabulous November 28, 2010 at 3:37 pm

I have this and i was just going to do a review on it!! :) but mine comes with two more attachments. i have a slimmer version of the round curler to make tighter curler and the straighter has two attachments with it. like u have reverse it. and then there is another plastic attachment
I agree the straighter is way to wide. so take smaller sections of hair. it works better then,
also i really hope ur putting a good heat protector on ur hair. u can get good ones at any lo`real parlors. here is a picture

but i am looking for a better heat protector tho.


ClassyandFabulous November 28, 2010 at 3:38 pm

and….here is a better description–46831729.htm

i think its for 5 hundred something.


PnB November 28, 2010 at 3:57 pm

@Classy&fabulous- i dont use a heat protectant..thanks a ton ! I need to get one , ill look into this..any cheaper ones you know of though? Isnt it so fun to work with this? I keep sitting and trying out different ringlets on the weekend…lol


Srish November 28, 2010 at 4:10 pm

I also have this set and I agree with you on the hair straightener, it just doesn't work…even if you get the hair straightened somehow, the hair just looks dead with no shine at all!For hair straightener which curls as well, I would recommend Philips Salon Straight Active Ion Straightener.I have done a review of this product here:

Hope that helps, nice review btw :)



PnB November 28, 2010 at 4:41 pm

@Srish – hmmm the ion one looks pretty good ! Will see it in th store next time im thr


ClassyandFabulous November 28, 2010 at 5:18 pm

nope dunno any cheaper. its really sad that we dont get too many options in the hairstyling department in india. garnier frutis has such a wide range abroad but we get like two things here which sucks. there are some online sites i`ll tell u about in a bit where u can order them from but i doubt it`ll be less expensive. but the lo`real one i bought was in september and and i use it like 4 times a week and still have lots left.


ClassyandFabulous November 28, 2010 at 5:22 pm

btw the 3rd attachment uve shown does it work properly for you.
i havnt really gotten the hang of it.
also there is a way to curl hair with a straighter but u require a slimmer one for that so that cant happen with this:(
nevertheless i love it :D


P&B November 29, 2010 at 5:02 am

@cLASSY&Fab-Yeah the third one is a bit of a puzzler. I think you need long thick hair to use it, My hair is way to thin to be wrapped all around it ….I just use the thinn curler for ringlets and thhe wider curler for waves…..the third one, contrary to what philips says i dont think works for ringlets…it works better for waves


Tanveer Parmar November 29, 2010 at 5:21 am

Sounds like a great product! Since I suffer from so much hairfall, I generally let my hair be & avoid all such styling, but this is sounds so handy & safe to use at home.. I'll def chk this out :)


Prachi November 29, 2010 at 6:33 am


I have same thing but 8 in 1 styler. Really loved it. Was just wondering if you apply anything before using this styler on ur hair?



P&B November 29, 2010 at 7:15 am

@Tanveer- yes i rarely do anything to my hair too…but i pull this out once in a while when going out.

@prachi- No i dont put anything but i really should get a heat protectant..the only one i know of is the l'oreal one..


Shikhs November 29, 2010 at 10:05 am

Hey Mehak,

Thanks a lot for reviewing this product. I have been looking forward to buy this since long. Even I have thin straight hairs. I have a request if you can do a video tutorial using this, it would be of great help.



Sharon November 29, 2010 at 3:14 pm

How good is this at straightening hair Mehak???
I'm basically looking for a flat iron but if I can get an all in one y not,rite :P


P&B November 29, 2010 at 6:17 pm

@Shikhs- ill do a tutorial see..but ill try and be clear in pictures if not in video.

@Sharon- the straightening attachment is not too good..its too wide and it doesnt do an efective job..leaves hair frizzy..

this is an awesome gadget! I'm not tech savvy either :) your background is super cute too!



Robbie December 2, 2010 at 11:36 am

I have this set, it's great although the straighteners are terrible (maybe just on my frizzy hair) but I think with those you get what you pay for!
Great blog, just discovered it. Now following. Would love you to check out mine if you have the chance.


Steph December 2, 2010 at 12:33 pm

i love the idea of this. So much easier to have it all in one! :) x


PnB December 3, 2010 at 4:23 pm

@robbie- yup the straighteners r aweful


Poohkie December 4, 2010 at 9:36 am

wow sounds really reasonable for under 2000. I've never bought any curler/straightener coz I'm a bit nervous about how my super fine hair will react. But this sounds really good. Will check it out in the future.


Sarah June 13, 2012 at 9:21 pm

Anjali August 19, 2013 at 3:27 pm

Dyann February 27, 2014 at 11:50 am

Excellent review; can’t wait to get one. Hope you don’t mind me asking, but would you happen to know how large the barrel of the curling iron attachment is? Just curious.

Thanks for yet another informative review. (And I love your wording; always makes me smile. I too am a “complete duh-brain when it comes to gadgets.”)


mehak February 27, 2014 at 11:53 am

HI Dyann,
The barrel is pretty small- its for tighter curls..say about 1.5 inch in diameter


Fathima February 27, 2014 at 2:22 pm

Plz tell us how to use attachment no. 3…even I have this straighter but don’t know how to use the third one…


mehak February 27, 2014 at 4:05 pm

I have no idea myself F!


Shreyasi October 12, 2014 at 2:07 pm
