Karmin Salon Pro G3 Styling Iron Review

Karmin Salon Pro G3 Styling Iron

The Karmin Salon Pro G3 Styling Iron is, by far, the best styling iron I have ever owned! This model is perfect for any time of the year, but certainly in the summer, when, on the East Coast, where I live, it gets very hot and humid. I can wash my hair and let it dry naturally. Sometimes it looks great…and sometimes, it’s a disaster! To the rescue: The Karmin Pro.

Karmin Ultimate Hair Styling Tool

The Karmin G3 Salon Pro Hair Styling Iron advertises itself as the “Ultimate Hair Styling Tool.” I agree, and here’s why. First, while from first glance it looks like a standard flat iron, it is not. This is a true “styling” iron that allows you to not only straighten your hair, but also flip, curl, or add waves!

The edges/plates of the styling iron are curved and this means a beautiful, smooth style, without any “dents” in your hair. Unlike other irons I’ve used, my hair never got caught on, or slipped between the plates; my hair easily slid through and I never had any frizz.

Karmin Tourmaline Ceramic flat iron plates

The Karmin G3 Salon Pro Professional Pure Tourmaline Ceramic Flat Iron plates are the same quality ceramic that is used in the space program; it is then combined with with a semi-precious gem, tourmaline. Karmin writes that this creates the “highest quality plates found on any professional styling iron available.”

Karmin for Professional and Home

The Karmin Salon Pro is perfect for both professional use as well as at home. When Karmin writes that one of the features is “flash quick heating,” it’s no exaggeration. The Karmin G3 Salon Pro warmed up so fast that the first time I tested it, I burnt my finger. There is a variable temperature control that will go up to 460 degrees Fahrenheit. Depending on your hair type, you choose the best temperature.

If you have thin hair, you need less heat so you won’t damage your hair. With Karmin, it’s easy to set the styling iron at a lower temperature.

If you have hair of medium thickness, the Karmin G3 Salon Pro heat setting of approximately 400 – 420 is best for curls, waves or straight styles.

Karmin writes that, “there’s no hair too thick for this professional hair tool.” With hair that is thick or coarse, the Karmin is able to provide a setting of 460 degrees Fahrenheit. G3 Salon Pro’s multiple settings makes it easy to start with a lower setting, and then slowly adjust the temperature according to your hair type.

The Salon Pro G3 has a 360 degree, tangle free swivel cord. The cord never tangled, no matter how hard I tried to out-maneuver it! This means that I was able to style my hair without stopping to fix the cord, as I was so used to doing on all the other irons I have ever owned! What a huge difference the 360 degrees made!!

Traveling with Your Karmin

Going somewhere this summer? Don’t worry; take your Karmin G3 with you! Worldwide Voltage means that you can use your styler in any country! (100-240V 50/60Hz with plug type A.) It not only has a slim design for easy packing, it’s lightweight. That means it not only won’t be heavy in your suitcase or carry-on, but also, it won’t give your arm cramps while you style your hair!

The Karmin Salon Pro G3 is available in three colors: black, white, and pink (which is what I received).

Register your Karmin G3, because if there is ever a problem, the Styling Tool is backed by a three-year warranty!

Final Thoughts on the Karmin

“Don’t settle for less than the best quality!” Karmin writes, and I agree. Without any reservations, I recommend Karmin’s Salon Pro G3 Styling Iron.

    Hello! I’m completely cruelty free and only have Paul mitchell because I know their stance on animal testing. Do you know this company’s stance? I’d like to try them. I like the slim design
    Thank you

    • Hi, Kristen! As of today, fortunately, Paul Mitchell is cruelty free! I always double check before I repurchase products, because, sadly, some companies do change, and do NOT want their loyal customers to know the truth!

      Thank you for being cruelty free, and for checking!
