September 2, 2009 Update

It pains me to say this but after 8 joyous straight-hair months, my Runway stopped working. I was doing my mother's hair tonight and I was about 1/4th of the way finished when I noticed the iron wasn't heating up anymore. It went from being normal hot to just warm, to now just cold. The red light indicator is dim and not flashing as it should be when it's at the desired temperature. I will not try to contact FHI for a replacement because they will not give a warranty to anyone who doesn't buy it from a salon or their website.

I had such a great experience with the Runway that it pains me to have to go find another one. I have been hearing that the CHIs break easily these days and I'm not sure about the other brands out there. Does anyone make a flat iron that lasts more than a year or two?

I did notice FHI changed the packaging of the box to be in red and black and show the runway and a girl. My box is white and blue and just shows the iron. So maybe the new box design signifies a new and better Runway iron -- who knows?

September 19, 2009 Update

I've now purchased two more flat irons since my Runway broke. The CHI Original ($90) and the Solia 1" ($80). Here's how I'd compare them to the Runway.

The CHI original is the weakest of the three irons, due to the fixed temperature. The best thing about the CHI is that it is made in the USA (real ones sold at salons, not the fakes). I am keeping the CHI as a backup iron in case my Solia ever stops working. It's not horrible and I could be happy with the results, it's just that it takes longer to straighten your hair with it and it gives more flyaways than the other two.

This buddy is still ticking after 5.5years and my loves it. I finally made the decision to grow out my hair from shoulder length and find I can flat-iron as much as once/week and retain my length (abt 8ins/yr with trims). In-between I wrap and pin-curl. My friend has gone through 3 CHIs (starting on her 4th one) in this time, I'm feeling better and better about this purchase.


I'm a little shy of my 4yr anniversary with this iron and it's still going strong...gotta knock on wood because I want to make at least the 5yr anniversary mark.

Ok so I've had my FHI Runway iron for over 18 months, and have passed through nearly every haircut including the Rihanna cut early last year to hair just below my shoulders now. I travel as a consultant, so the hair must be on point! My hair type ranges from a little bit of 4A on the sides, some 3B at the top and Center but is mostly 3C. I've been natural since August 2005, so I've tried my fair share of straightening tools. I've used the cheap straighteners when that was all that was there for me in college (hot tools - BAD for your hair, vidal sassoon ceramic - hair gets caught between the plates causing pulling) and some pricier ones now that I'm working (CHI original, CHI Nano, HAI, etc.). The FHI is the best of them all and keeps working for me although it does have the highest price tag of all the irons I've used so far. I think it's worth the price.

After much research and debate with myself, I decided to make this special purchase as a treat to myself and my hair. This is definitely the best investment I've made in terms of a styling tool ever! What else can I say but I love it! As an African American female, there are few tools that yield the same result as freshly curled hair by way of the marcel irons. Not only did the Runway meet my expectations in that area, it left my hair softer than ever and with a sheen that is quite impressive. Ladies treat yourself in '08 with this worth while tool. After I'm done I look like I've stepped out of the salon!

I had read SEVERAL reviews before purchasing this flat iron. This is a $450 top-of-the-line flat iron. I have very thick and coarse hair, so it cut my styling time in half and keeps my hair straight for days. I discovered the runway because my stylist uses it, and I got hooked. I have used many straighteners and I thought it was the best. That being said, my sister bought a flat iron from Target a few weeks after I splurged on my $450 FHI. She bought one that is for both wet and dry hair, and performance-wise it is VERY comparable to the Fhi...and it was less than $50! Several reviews that I read warned about the delicate plates. Mine was dropped once, and now is completely useless (it wont even turn on), there is a hairline crack in the plate, and it is no longer covered by the 1 year manufacturer warranty.

If you drop this thing one time it wont last. My friend dropped it from probably 2-3 feet. I was ULTRA careful with it (my friend was the one who dropped it), but it just takes ONE time, there is no mercy with this (or the warranty).

It isn't worth $450, go buy a $50 wet/dry hair straightener and it will do the job just as good, and you won't have to worry about it breaking, and breaking your bank.
