On the customer-service side of things, some consumers report the InStyler infomercial -- which advertises a 30-day trial for only $14.99 -- conceals the fact you have to buy two InStylers at a time for $140 once the trial expires. Numerous users found they were billed the full amount before the 30-day trial ended and had to haggle with customer service for a refund. Lauren Keith, who tested the product for KFVS 12 media outlet with a friend, was able to avoid the extra charges: "I was vigilant in shipping the products back in the middle of that free trial period and calling several times to double check I would not be charged in full." We suggest purchasing the InStyler in a brick-and-mortar store with a reputable return policy and where you may limit your purchase to only one.
Reporter Kim Setty asks three women to try the InStyler with a hairstylist. The stylist approves of the device, saying it does a great job of both straightening and curling.
Anchor Lauren Keith asks test subject Missy O'Kelly to describe her experience with the InStyler. The product works as advertised, she says, and O'Kelly is impressed by the volume it creates. However, both O'Kelly and Keith take issue with the $14.99 free trial (which can easily balloon to more than $140 if you don't send back your two InStylers promptly).
This short review of the InStyler explains how it works and recommends it because it both straightens the hair and curls the ends, while leaving the roots full of volume. While the author actually tested the device, she does not compare it to other models.
