The device

The curling iron BaByliss - ipro C525E is delivered in a high-quality, visually informative packaging and leaves a good first impression. In the scope of delivery, the curling iron and the operating instructions are included. The iron has a dark blue silver design. The device contains a ceramic coating and a plastic handle, as well as two temperature switches. The temperature regulation is indicated on a small display and indicates the adjustable area between 100°C and 200°C. To place the curling iron, a fold-out stand has also been integrated as well as a rotatable cable.

Application/ Result

In order to give a detailed insight into the product and its range of functions, the overall impression, temperature control, ergonomics, price/performance ratio, and curl result were compared and evaluated. For the test process, we set the highest temperature level, which is 200°C. The temperature of the curls is the same as the temperature of the hair. The heating time is about one to two minutes. The display flashes until the selected temperature is reached. The device also has a clamp on the heating cylinder, which allows the individual strands to be attached during curling and then wound up. This is very practical in terms of handling. The heating cylinder has a circumference of 9.5 cm, which can be used to style medium curls. In addition, the slim handle has also been very positive in use, thus facilitating ergonomics and application. During the application, it was noticed that the curls can be quickly styled and a beautiful result is achieved.


The BaByliss curling iron is one of the cheaper products in the test, but it gives a quite good result. The operating instructions are given in several languages and explained in an understandable way.

During use, care should be taken to ensure that the hair is only curled when dry and that no hair styling products are used before curling. In case of malfunctions, the manufacturer grants a 3-year warranty.

Overview: Curling Iron

How do you like this product?


Is there an automatic switch-off?
Yes, it switches itself off after about 120 minutes.
Can the clamp be removed or is it firmly attached to the device?
The clamp is connected to the device. Screws are not visible.
Is the diameter also suitable for slightly shorter hair than shoulder length, e.g. for more volume due to waves?
I personally have a longbob and therefore sometimes shorter than shoulder-length hair. I think it works anyway. You need a little practice, but once you've got the hang of it, it's actually pretty fast and uncomplicated.
How long is the cable?
180 cm.
