Seeing Double // Babyliss & Conair Curl Machines

There is so much hype around the latest gadget by Babyliss which is the  Babyliss Pro Curl machine. I know I fell hook line and sinker for it and can only dream about getting those perfect curls that you see on the blogger video's but its a downfall is that it carries a hefty price tag. 

My hair is thin and flyaway and even with the best products, it tends to drop curls quicker than Helen Flanagan posts selfies on Instagram. If I had hair that held a style then I would most definitely pay the £165 price tag but I worry about wasting money, especially when it's the summer holibobs and my kids seem to need everything going. I've tried a few curlers, tongs and curling thingy-ma-bobs and while some leave my hair nice and curly they fall flat or frizz up as soon as I head outdoors - yup that's even with the best products in my hair alongside the curlers. 

This is the Babyliss Pro Curl. I think most buyers know that this is the only machine of it's kind, I thought so too until I read that an American brand Conair is bringing out a curl machine too.  So clearly Babyliss is a tad mistaken with their marketing, here's the Babyliss Pro Curl 
And this is the Conair Curl Machine... 


Scarily similar huh! 

Now normally I hate it when companies copy original ideas but I suppose it happens every day. Eventually, the market becomes over saturated and there tends to be one brand that sticks out more than others which are mostly down to good marketing and PR rather than the product in my opinion. 

In this case, I'm actually glad that there are other companies copying the Babyliss Pro Curl, why? because it means they will all start competing against each other and that means two things. The first being the price may drop and the second means that they will compete to offer the best results - higher temperatures, quicker results, lighter machinery, oh the list goes on and on. 

So what I will say is that, if, like me, you want to get your curl on, but don't have the £100+ readily available to splurge, it may be wise to hold off. Come Christmas I'm guessing you're going to see plenty more of these curl machines on offer and at a lower price tag. 

Have you seen any more of these curl machine dupes anywhere else?
