All the Basics!

How do you clean your TYME Iron Pro?
The TYME Iron heat sleeve provides a quick cleaning tool for general cleaning of the plates. You can use a damp, microfiber cloth to clean the plates if it requires more. For a deeper clean, you can add a little rubbing alcohol to a dry cloth and wipe the iron clean.

How do I get my curls to last?
You should expect your TYME Iron curls to last you days, not hours! If your curls aren't lasting long enough, there are a couple of tips to help get more life out of your style.

  • Make sure you are curling at a slow speed with loose tension. Slowing down gives the hair more time to heat and more time to cool, giving each curl a better set!
  • Evaluate your foundational products. Do your shampoo and conditioner weigh your hair down? Does your thermal protectant contain oils? All of these factors will affect your hair's performance and the longevity of your curls.
  • Check your temperature setting. If your hair is thick or naturally curly, you may need to go up a heat setting to set your curls better.

What is the best way to store my TYME Iron when I'm not using it?
With the TYME Heat Sleeve, of course! It's perfect if you're on the go and need to pack up your iron in a hurry! With this, you can finish using it, pop it in the sleeve, and your iron is instantly safe in your suitcase or little hands ;) Order your heat sleeve here!

Are TYME Irons worth it?
Yes! If you break it down from a cost perspective, TYME Irons are one of the most cost-efficient styling tools on the market. The cheapest curling irons and straighteners cost at least $20. By buying every curling iron that matched the capabilities of the TYME Iron Pro, you would reach the cost of the iron. The longevity of the cheaper irons would have you spending that same dollar amount continuously throughout the years, while the TYME Iron is made with quality components and assembly that is built to last!

Is TYME Iron Sold in Stores?
The TYME Iron and other TYME product are available online directly through or Amazon, Target, Walmart, and Sam's Club.

Who makes the TYME Iron?
The TYME Iron was designed and patented by TYME CEO Jacynda Smith. As a cosmetologist, Jacynda consistently heard that women couldn't create the styles they wanted at home. The TYME Iron was her solution to that problem.

Is TYME a good product?
We're biased, but yes! Since 2014 the TYME Iron has been transforming women's lives (especially morning routines). Don't just take our word for it, though. Read the reviews here.


All the Deets!

How Many Heat Settings Does the Iron Have?
The TYME Iron has five heat settings. 300º, 325º, 350º, 375º, and 400ºF

How long does a TYME Iron take to heat up?
The TYME Iron Pro's titanium plates take only 55 seconds to heat up.

Does the Iron Have an Automatic Shutoff Feature?
Yes, but only after 30 minutes of non-use :)

What Type of Heat Plates Does the Iron Have?
The TYME iron has titanium plates! Titanium is a lightweight, low-density lustrous metal that offers high-temperature stability. Compared to ceramic, titanium can heat up much faster, within seconds, while distributing the heat evenly throughout the surface. It also has a higher ionic charge that makes hair straight and sleek in less time.

Does the Iron Come with a Warranty or Return Policy?
Yes, both! Your purchase comes with a 1-year warranty, 30-day return policy (fees may apply, learn more here), and free StyleTYME sessions for you to learn how to get the most out of your tyme ;)

Is the Iron Dual Voltage?
Yes! The voltage is 110-120v and 220-240v. They will work in both the North American environment as well as the EU and those places that draw 220-240 from the outlet. The only additional thing needed would be an adaptor so the plug will fit the outlet.

What is the easiest tool to curl hair?
The patented design of the TYME Iron Pro puts the twist of curling right into the iron. Curling hair only takes a simple, easy flick of the wrist.

What is similar to TYME Iron?
While a few companies tried to replicate the structure of the TYME Iron with "twist and curl" irons, the power and function of these irons don't quite match up to the TYME Iron.

How do you use a twist and curl iron?
Twist and Curl irons put the rotation and curl creation in the plates, while the TYME Iron Pro prioritizes first the rotation process, flash heating, and the cooling process.

All the Hair Types!

Does the TYME Iron Pro Work on Both Short and Long Hair?
Yes, and yes! With this iron, you start at the top of the section instead of the bottom, so when your length drops out is when your curl will end! You just need about an inch in length to be able to use the iron.

Does it Work on Thick Hair?
Yes! Jacynda has very thick hair and her curls now last 7+ days! Products can play a very big part, and that is why we offer our free one-on-one virtual learning sessions! Our stylists can teach you how to get the curl you want and make sure you are taking great care of your hair!

Does it Work on Fine Hair?
Yes! For fine hair, possibly use a lower heat setting, and make sure you are using less tension when gliding through the hair. Check out this video of the TYME Iron being used on fine hair!

Does it Work on Naturally Curly Hair?
Absolutely. The best part? The TYME Iron smooths as it curls, so there is no need to straighten before curling.

Is TYME good for hair?
The TYME Iron Pro is shifting toward more efficient heat styling, meaning less heat exposure. Styles with the TYME Iron last for days, giving your hair a well-deserved break from heat exposure on those "already styled" days.

What is the best curling iron for beach waves?
The easiest beach waves are created with the TYME Iron Pro. Whether you're looking to create defined beach waves with smaller sections or effortless beach waves with big sections, the TYME Iron Pro can do it all.

All the Perks!

What Makes the TYME Iron Pro So Different?
The TYME Iron was built with the twist in the tool, so you don’t have to twist as much with your wrist. With a slight turn of your wrist, you are able to create any type of curl, from a loose beachy wave to a tight ringlet. Flip the iron over, and it’s a straightener! This design allows your hair to curl faster, and the style will last longer due to the heating and cooling effects from the shape and technique.

What is the Difference Between the TYME Iron Pro and a Flat Iron?
With the TYME Iron, you can create any straight, wavy, or curly look you want. Essentially, it is like having 4+ tools in one tool. You can achieve a BIG difference in the curl or wave you get with just slight wrist and arm adjustments :) We will even teach you how to curl best for your hair type, and give tips and tricks on how to achieve different looks through HangTYME sessions!

Can You Use the Iron Left Handed?
Yes, you can! The technique is a little bit different! Here is a video of the CEO and inventor, Jacynda, explaining how.

Can You Use the TYME Iron Pro on Extensions?
If your extensions can handle general heat from a flat iron then they should be fine, but you should refer to their extension manufacturer instructions in regards to if you can apply heat. Our TYME Iron Pro has an adjustable heat option ranging from 300ºF to 400ºF if you need to curl on a low heat setting!

How long does a TYME Iron last?
The TYME Iron Pro is manufactured with the best components to make it last 5-10 years!
