The Instyler doesn't work for short hair.
The flip in and flip out do work ok, but I can do that with my regular and cheap hair dryer. I like how it straightens my hair , but my flat iron do the same look without the funny smell.
My hair is a little bit over the shoulder and when I tried for the curling IT DOES NOT WORK because the lenght is not long enough for 2 turns. Curling the back of my hair IMPOSIBLE, is very easy to get burn. The curling irons has a plastic tip at the top so at least you can use your both hands to help you out, but with the instyler you most likely will get hurt.
Overall it is a OK product but do not buy it if you have a short hair.
