The 1" is the perfect size for me. It's light weight and fits my hand well giving me great rang of motion. It has a swivel cord as well for even more maneuverability. Both sides of the barrel are rounded, so it can easily double as a curler. With 30 heat settings and lightning fast heat up time you cant go wrong with this Ceramic, and the Bonus 1/2" is a steel...
At first I thought, "well, I don't really need the 1/2", but it would be nice for travel." I was wrong! The 1/2" works so well for detailing Bangs or framing the face. Its small, so I didn't feel uneasy about it being close to my face or ears which allowed me to do much more intricate work. Its also great for that one patch of rebellious hair that wont do what its told, or, as I mentioned before, Travel. It heats up fast too, which is always a plus!
*They both also reduce Frizz and Split Ends and Increase the shine of your hair for an over all more healthy look and feel.

It may be small but it packs a punch. 3 Heat selection to choose from and a High & Low setting make it a good all around blow dryer. It features a long cord and ergonomic handle, plus its light weight and very portable.
