2. Application | StyleCare Prestige

The Philips StyleCare Prestige is the new edition of the Philips StyleCare Auto Curler. It has the shape of a tulip and is placed vertically on the head. This is to protect the arm muscles, since an automatic curling iron with half a kilo is not exactly easy. We all know the problem when the arm hurts so bad after 3 strands that we want to take a break, but with that Philips StyleCare Prestige we no longer have this problem.

Due to the open design and the long curling iron, twice as much hair should be curled at once (compared to the Philips Auto Curler). For us this means: faster styled for the party, event etc.

There is no general requirement how long the hair has to be in order to use the "StyleCare Prestige" from Philips. In general, the hair should not be too short for curlers. The device needs a hair length of approx. 15 cm to "grab" and curl the hair. The hair should be at least chin length to style beautiful curls. According to Philips, the StyleCare Prestige suitable for all hair types.

Everyone who has a curler knows the problem: Pinched hair! But thanks to the open design, the smooth curling iron and an intelligent sensor, you can easily create curls without having to worry about pinched hair. The intelligent sensor stops the device when it detects that too much hair or it has not been inserted properly. The open and upright design allows you to remove the hair immediately.

What setting options does the StyleCare Prestige from Philips have?

According to Philips, are with the StyleCare Prestige 27 different looks possible.

3 time settings (8 sec., 10 sec., 12 sec.),
3 Temperature Settings (170 ° C, 190 ° C, 210 ° C) and
3 curl directions (left, right, automatic)

These can be combined with one another as desired. Strictly speaking, the time settings are only an aid from the device in the form of an acoustic signal. The hair is always released manually by pulling the curls out of the device.

Temperature and time setting:

The StyleCare Prestige from Philips has three temperature levels. At 170 ° C there is a very low level, which is very gentle on the hair. As a user, you can decide which temperature you want to use. Other curlers don't have these options like Babyliss, for example.

According to the operating instructions, the time and temperature setting should be selected according to the styling request:

styling requesttemperaturetime
Waves170°C and XNUMX°C8 sec.
Soft curls190°C and XNUMX°C10 sec.
Firm curls210°C and XNUMX°C12 sec.

However, you also have to consider your hair type:
For thick hair, a high temperature combined with a high time setting ensures defined curls. For thin or damaged hair, you should choose a low temperature and time setting to protect the hair. You can create great styles even at low temperatures.

There is a separate cleaning accessory with a felt covering for cleaning the curling iron. This allows residues from styling products on the curling iron to be removed. The device must be switched off and cooled down before use. The cleaning accessories are placed in the curling chamber on the curling iron and moved up and down several times.

5. Conclusion - StyleCare Prestige from Philips

At the beginning, the handling of the Philips "StyleCare Prestige" was a bit unusual. You first have to get a feel for how the strand of hair is to be inserted into the curl chamber. After trying it out for the first time, however, you get along very well with the technology. Compared to a conventional curling iron, the curls on the back of the head are much easier to curl yourself.

The styling time is determined by the length of the hair and the desired styling result. The manufacturer recommends starting with a 4 cm strand of hair. This is more than curling curlers from other manufacturers that recommend a width of approx. 2-3 cm. A hair divider is available as an accessory to make it easier to determine the amount of hair. But after a short time you have a good feeling for how much hair the Philips curler can take, even without it.

You have to admit that the promised 27 styling options are a little too much of a good thing. The curls or waves differ little from each other if you only change the temperature or only the time setting. You can create beautiful waves, light curls and real curls, but 27 different styles are unlikely to be created.

If you want fixed curls with long, thick hair, the strand of hair must be chosen accordingly thinner and the time setting should be 12 seconds. The styling time is then correspondingly longer (approx. 30 minutes). Waves take around 10-15 minutes with long, thick hair and a little practice.

The "StyleCare Prestige" is also reasonably priced. With about 140 € you have invested very well in this curler. There are other models from different manufacturers that are below but also above the price of the "StyleCare Prestige".

Finally, it can be said that the "StyleCare Prestige" from Philips is well worth its price. Great looks can be created like a professional, the arm hurts less, the curls hold well and it is suitable for all hair types. Whether young or old, everyone will be satisfied here. Also a nice idea as a gift for a birthday or Christmas.

Update: The latest version of the StyleCare Prestige is the StyleCare Prestige MoistureProtect Auto-Curler! Somewhat more expensive, same functions + protects the natural moisture of the hair thanks to the MoistureProtect technology!
