Zig and Zag Stylee

Advantagescreate a lot of different looks

Disadvantagestakes a bit of getting used to

"This appliance basically enables you to create many different styles in the comfort of your own home using just one base unit with four interchangeable attachments. So, Iíll just run through the various attachments and their uses, Iíll try not to be too boring about it. The Spiral Tongs ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ These create a corkscrew effect curl, it has a spiral along the barrel of the tongs to guide you, although if you have longer hair, ..." Read review

Lots of variety for anyones hair

AdvantagesIt is very easy to use and change the attatchments

DisadvantagesThe locking mechanism doesn't always work

"I don't like my hair, i never have. I have straight, shoulder lenght, mousey brown hair. It is completely lifeless, apart from a couple of silly little kinks in it. Over the years, i have tried lots of things, to try and liven it up a bit, but to no avail. Perms drop out after a couple of weeks, proving to be a waste of money. I needed, a quick fix solution. Instead of buying a crimper and curling tongs, seperate, i looked for an appliance that ..." Read review

Total shaping and styling in one box

AdvantagesGet six products for the price of one

DisadvantagesTakes a while to heat and get used to

"...a hedge backwards. But with the Philips Geometricks you get a 6 in 1 system, so it's possible to geive yourself any style you want, or is it? The Geometricks comes in quite a large box, with a picture on the front of all the parts you get and two woman with styles produced with it. On the back you get six pictures showing you the different styles that you can produce with the six attachments. So what do you get in the box? ----------------------------- For ..." Read review

Getting Tricky With It

AdvantagesLots of Syling Options

DisadvantagesStorage Creativity Needed

"...in one compact purple box. The Philips Geometricks '6 in 1' (HP 4696) has since provided me with more hair fun than I've had since I was a teenager at a sleep-over make up party. It straightens, crimps, and curls in a variety of ways. It does this because the product design allows the user to select different attachments to a neat, compact wand. The attachments are easy to change. Simply loosen a collar, pull off the current attachment (when it's ..." Read review

Philips Geometricks - A Different Style Everyday Review with images

AdvantagesLots of Different styles from One Tool

DisadvantagesNone

"...a product. It was the Philips Geometricks 6 in 1 Styler. It was advertised in Argos for £24.99. When I saw the category for it on Ciao I was suprised. But a quick check in the Argos catalogue confirmed not only do they sell the Philips version but several more besides, typically now they're retailing at £19.75. Now they are sold with a storage pouch and hair clips. ☼ Outside Packaging: When I purchased this product it came in a long box ..." Read review

Quick review of Philips HP 4696 Salon Geometricks 8 IN 1

"i don't particularly like these straightners, i much prefer my other ones because the straighteners do not heat up very quickly and they do not get to a high temperature, however, the crimpers and curlers are excellent.

Style in one box

AdvantagesAs many options as a girl could ask for

DisadvantagesNone!!

"I've had the Geometricks kit since one of my friends showed up to a party with gorgeous curly hair. I girl i might add who has the starightest hair ive ever seen. She recommended it and i am now totally addicted. While it takes a bit of time (about 15-20 minutes) to fully heat up, it is well worth the wait, Since you can have several types of curls, straighten your hair and lots more! I have naturally wavy hair, the type thats not straight ..." Read review

HP 4696 a complex tool which makes me scratch my head

Advantagescomplex accessories, achieve great hair styles (I guess)

Disadvantageslack of detailed intructions about how to achieve desired results

"I got this hairstyler as a Christmas present from my friends. I was impressed by the number of accessories it has, it looks like a tool for professionals. What I don't like about this product is the lack of detailed instructions and advice about how to use it for various hair styles. The kit has some instructions printed on a piece of paper A5 size telling me to press the lever 20, hold the cool tip 15 etc. I would have liked some pictures to explain ..." Read review

Philips Geometricks 8 in 1

Advantageshas 8 different attatchments for different styles

Disadvantagesheat up time is too long and not high enough

"i was really excited when i bought this straightener/curler as i thought it was cheap and it had many different uses. the book enclosed was very handy as it showed how to create different effects and was an easy to use guide. BUT i was quite disappointed... firstly it took ages to heat up, roughly about 15 minutes, which although it says so on the box, its too long if you're in a rush to go out. it shows when it is heated by a little dot turning red, ..."
