ABOUT THE COMPANY

FEATURES & BENEFITS
- The temperature control is digital with LED indicators.
- The temperature range is from 300F to 450F.
- Voltage is 120 volts.
The pure titanium plates on this hair tool heat up rapidly at a very high heat – up to 450F – while resisting corrosion. It is very effective in maintaining this heat, while the stay-cool Righton Housing resists high heat so that the users can comfortably grip the flat iron. The nano titanium plates when heated give hair smooth silky shine and eliminate undesirable frizz. The far-infrared heat penetrates the hair from the inside out without damage. It should not take many passes to get the desired look.
There are 2 plate sizes to choose from:
1 1/4″ plate size or the 1 3/4″ plate size
Babyliss offers a 4 year limited warranty on these models. They will repair or replace the device if it is defective in any workmanship or materials for 48 months from the date of purchase. What you need:
- Purchase receipt (Don’t worry! If you’ve lost it, the warranty is valid 48 months from the date of manufacture)
- $5.00 shipping and handling(not required for California residents)
- Send it to their service department
Check out the user manual for further warranty information.
Unfortunately for Babyliss Pro and their customers, there are fake versions of their devices out on the market and consumers like yourself are being tricked into purchasing these cheaper quality fakes. Be careful when making a purchase. Look at reviews to see what verified customers are saying about the product. There are other ways of telling prior to purchase if a device is possibly a fake:
- Different colors offered. The models we are reviewing, BABNT2091T and 2094, are blue.
- Websites with no contact number or address
- The price is too good to be true
If you do end up with a fake, it should be returned and reported.
Is the Babyliss Nano Right for your Hair Type?
As the plates are titanium and heat up to ultra-high heat, it is best if used on normal to thick, coarse hair. If you have very thin, fragile hair than it is best to choose a hair straightener with lower temperatures. The plate sizes available should be suitable for most lengths of hair. If you have short hair, it would be preferable to use the thinner 1 1/4′ plates. If you find that too wide for your hair, then you should be looking for a flat iron with 1″ plates which Babyliss has as well.
Pros & Cons of the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Flat Iron
- Very durable and scratch-resistant, lasting longer than ceramic plates.
- Reaches high temperatures to straighten stubborn hair.
- Fewer passes need to be made = less exposure to heat.
- Will likely cause damage at it's high temperatures to thin, fragile hair.
- The more expensive option.
Care & Maintenance
Cleaning and care of the Babyliss Nano couldn’t be simpler. There is no lubrication needed. It is helpful to keep the device clear of dirt and dust. If cleaning is needed, make sure the unit is disconnected and cooled before you begin. Wipe the exterior with a soft cloth.
In regards to maintenance, should anything go wrong with your device, halt using the unit and make use of that 4 year warranty.
There you have it, the Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium Flat Iron Review. The plates get hot and they stay hot while the handle remains cool. It comes in 2 plate sizes to suit your preference and with a 4 year warranty in case anything goes wrong. It is suitable for normal to thick hair types and meant for professional use due to the high heat titanium plates that maintain their heat.
