BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron Review

BaBylissPRO Nano titanium ultra-thin straightening iron is another top contender for the ultra-high its category featuring ultra-smooth titanium plates for high conductance and heat resistance.

This is the smaller sister with one inch plates which definitely come in handy getting around creases and bends by starting closer to the roots and better maneuverability. Larger plate size of 1.5″ make it harder to create colony fact without creating inadvertent bends.

It may be a small flat iron but it features a 5-inch extended plates and high performance ceramic heating which delivers a comfortable 450 degrees Fahrenheit with instant recovery.

If you wish for a lightweight and super smooth flat iron and your hair happens to be slightly on the tough side when it comes to straightening out with a flat iron then you might love this item.

The beautiful housing you can see is the Ryton heat resistant housing and we work to feel its performance on the palm. When you work with hot tools for long enough you’re bound to build some tolerance to the heat and so most of our testers have previously not needed heat gloves for BaBylissPRO products. Again this is a hypothesis we set out to investigate as we carried on with our review of the top seller.

When you are all four temperature adjustability then you will totally love this little tool because it has 50 settings in all where’s settings 1 to 10 are 240 to 275 degrees. This actually means you get to style at much lower temperatures when you’re dealing with fragile and sensitive hair.

Being a BaByliss pro means this flat iron will have to perform extraordinary tasks to impress our team. Now let’s see how well it did on the design front.

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron Review

The most striking thing about the straightener is the amount of metal parts that go on the body, th as an almost entirely steel casing and we figured that might good for the structural strength and all but it is not the ideal material for a hot iron that you might need to work with for longer than a few minutes. Even just looking at it, this one looks like you might need that heat glove after all.

Another notable feature of the Nano Titanium Ultra-thin styler is the lock slider button which allows you to secure the jaws so that the straightener won’t open further or touch so they sort of remain parallel until the next use. The only other material hard enough to scratch one of your plates might be the sister plate and so it makes sense that you would want to keep them from colliding as you carry the iron.

This straightener gives you a wide range of temperatures to work with and it has a dedicated button for increasing and decreasing the temperature. You would think its commonplace but not that many flat irons actually do have a separate button for temperature selection and for turning on and off the device.

Heating Process

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron Review

This titanium-plated ultra-thin straightening iron from BaByliss pro gets pretty hot thanks to the high tech ceramic heating technology that provides instant heat and recovery.

The ultra-smooth titanium plates are excellent conducting surfaces with high heat capacity and resistance to corrosion. They’re a good compliment for the ceramic heaters and make this styler well adapted for many hair types including coarse and thick hair. If anything your hands should be the ones likely to complain about receiving too much heat from this baby seeing as they decided to settle on a metal hood.


BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron Review

If you have tried many flat irons without any success then you might be willing to sacrifice economics for regular use with something a bit more powerful that is what the BaByliss nano titanium ultra-thin straightening iron has to offer. No power at the expense of grip and comforts in the palm. We found that this Tyler requires a heat glove to operate longer than 10 minutes but it’s probably worth it for difficult to style hair types.

This design is not as unusual as something like the croc classic titanium iron, especially because it has a rather boring shape and the sauce choice of materials for the exterior design is not perfect either but it gets the job done. It’s not an ergonomic enough for you to get a firm grip but it’s a lot easier with the heat glove.

Interestingly despite all of the obvious challenges celebrity hair stylist and hairdresser that salons I’ve made this by Billy’s products a favorite. We are not routing for the product but results speak for themselves so it’s not great for ergonomics but handles okay when it comes to difficult hair where other stylers will not succeed.

Hair Damage

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Ultra-Thin Straightening Iron Review

When it’s a ceramic and titanium plated flat iron from a legit professional brand then you know that it packs some serious calories too. This styler will destroy fine and sensitive hair and worsen damage if used carelessly. We recommend you start by styling at a lower temperature than you did with your previous iron.

With proper use, this could work well for normal to coarse hair types. If you like intense heat for a more powerful styling experience then this is the right buy.

Battery Life

It does not include an internal battery but the BaBylissPRO is a serious piece of salon equipment that will give you lots of service and working hours. Maybe it is the results and longevity of the heaters, plates and the body of the styler itself that makes it such a favorite among professionals.


If you use a flat iron at home and don’t seem to get salon results then you might be using the wrong equipment. This is a functional titanium plated styler from a brand you can trust. It is value for money especially when you are buying this for the long term because it is built to be indestructible.

On the contrary if you are not used working with hot tools and can’t grip your previous flat iron firmly after ten minutes of operation, this is likely even hotter. It is not a nice place to begin if you are just starting out because for that you might need a more ergonomic design with better grip and gentle heaters.
