I love my natural curls, but I also love a good blowout—and I’ve tried numerous straighteners and curling wands to find the best one. The Lunata Cordless Styler Pro, a cordless flat iron, is one of the few hair styling tools that instantly won me over. Here’s why.
I have thick hair—and a lot of it—with a 3C curl pattern. Styling it is big time commitment, and the last thing I want to deal with while straightening my hair for an hour (or more!) is getting tangled up in a bunch of wires—or worse, blowing a fuse. For my own sanity, I need the styling process to be a near-effortless experience, which is exactly why I was drawn to this flat iron in the first place: It’s cordless. Just shy of a pound, the Lunata Cordless Styler Pro is also lightweight and compact, taking up little space in my studio apartment, and being an excellent travel companion if the need ever arises. Don’t let it’s small size fool you though. It’s one the most powerful cordless hair tools on the market, which we’ll get right into.
One of the most game-changing features of the Lunata flat iron is its heat settings. This cordless flat iron has an adjustable temperature range of 200 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, with options to turn up the heat in 10 degree-increments at a time. The level of precision makes it suitable for different hair types, from wavy to thicker and coarser textures. The plates can reach their max temp in under a minute thanks to something the brand calls “rapid heat technology,” which lets you get to styling faster—and something I appreciate when pressed for time.
But let’s back it up to those temperature settings. Most of the hair straighteners I’ve used in the past peaked at 410 degrees, which isn’t hot enough to pass through my thick, curly hair. In order for me to thoroughly style my whole head without any frizz, I need a powerful hair styling tool that can stand a chance against my 3C curls. Enter the Lunata cordless flat iron, which thanks to its impressive heat settings and long, one-inch titanium plates, glides seamlessly through my hair. Even better, my curls haven’t snagged once in between the plates, nor have I accidentally singed myself since the silicone handles stay cool throughout—even at its highest output.
