I don't think I've quite gotten the hang of this curling iron yet, but I've only used it a handful of times, so I haven't had a lot of practice. The name of the iron is correct - this puts a soft bend in your hair rather than curls. I wouldn't use this curling iron with a bob because I think you'd end up with something a little mushroom-y, but I have collarbone-length hair currently, and it gives me a little "oomph" without looking overly curled. Like Kristin Ess' other tools, this one clamps nice and strong but not too tightly, so you can have the confidence that you're actually getting your hair in there. There are also variable heat settings which is always appreciated, and the thumb press on the clamp is slightly indented which I believe makes for easier use and shows true care in my opinion. Don't buy this curling iron if you want true curls, but if you want something that looks effortless and bouncier than your normal hair, this is a good one.
