Perfect for lasting volume and not noticable at all for me!
First of all, if you are thinking of buying this crimper, understand it is ONLY meant to be used in such a capacity as to increase hair volume. If used to try and style your hair into a crimpy style, it will not only take forever to do with this, but also look far too crimped.
I have extremely fine, oily hair that is naturally very flat against my head. I've teased my hair for years to try and remedy this, but teasing is time consuming and, because of the texture of my hair, often requires I re-tease later on in the day to maintain volume. When I discovered this product, it was actually through the more expensive version. Being that I've spent so much money in the past on previous hot irons and curling irons and such, and never was that happy, I wasn't willing to go for it again. So I found this much, much more affordable version and couldn't be happier!
As many have explained, to use this, first lift up the top layer of hair around your head and clip it up and out of the way. Then simply crimp all the hair below at the roots, which lifts it up.
Some people have said that it's difficult to get the hang of using this, since it can be really easy to see where you've crimped your hair if not hidden well by the top layers. However, I didn't find this to be the case with me. Maybe it's because I have lighter hair or just because the texture of my hair is different, but I was even able to go so far as to crimp some of the top layers of my hair without it really being detectable!
I have found that this method of increasing volume lasts longer than teasing and can even last into the following day if you decide not to shower. Just can't get over this handy tool!
The first photo of me is right after I showered, blow-dried, and straightened my hair. The second is after using this Little Tease Crimper. The third is my final styled look, where I spent a quick and easy 15 seconds teasing my hair and then followed it up with a little spritz of hairspray.

Crimp underneath and have beautful full hair always!!!!
This has changed my life forever!!! I saw an add for a box like crimper for volume and then read online a normal crimper can do the same. I have longer fine hair, even with layers and roll brushing and every trick in the book falls flat especially in humid summers. This crimper has literally changed my hair forever. My hair is usually flat to my head, with underneath crimping it looks like I have thick hair, almost like its super full. Not 80's huge, not frizzed out - like perfect, full, instagram, hair. I couldn't believe how nice it lays and how full it stays. A little bit of hairspray and I am good all day 8-12 hours at the hospital working.... It is an extra step in my routine, but I will NEVER not crimp underneath my hair again.
The trick is to crimp sections underneath your hair leaving enough hair on top to cover the crimped hair underneath. There are plenty of videos on how to master this online - youtube or pinterest. I tried it a few times before to get the hang of it - not leaving enough hair on top to cover allows the crimped parts to show through, but it isn't super noticeable even if they do. Either way I LOVE THIS. My long thin, fine hair is amazing now - super full and lays wonderfully. This is supposed to be healthier for your hair as well compared to ratting. My other trick is washing your hair upside down in the shower - conditioner first then shampoo. I have had the fullest, fluffiest, non flat hair ever - even in the summer, even when I visited miami.... I will never not crimp underneath again.

This guy works great and has the desired effect
I use this on my roots underneath to add body/volume to thin/fine hair. I was skeptical, but saw an ad for a MUCH more expensive similar item and thought I'd try to source the same results at a fraction of the price. Turns out, I hit the mark. This guy works great and has the desired effect. The effect lasts, and best of all this tool has variable heat settings. Thin/fine hair can't withstand high heat and sometimes Bed Head will have only one setting: HOT AS THE SUN (or off). This one has a range and that suits my purpose and my hair. Very very pleased and I feel like I made money overall, given how much I saved versus the newly advertised version.

great for volume!
So far I'm very impressed with this mini crimper. I'm a professional hair stylist and have been looking for an inexpensive one for adding volume to hair and updos by crimping at the root. I must say it works great! I do not recommend it if you are wanting to wear a crimped style... get a bigger crimper for that. These mini ones are not designed for that purpose.

Great Volumizing Tool
This is not a crimper for your whole head. It's a tool you use near the roots of your hair to add volume, and it works. A perfect alternative to teasing or adding volumizing products, if you don't mind using a hot tool.

Great little gem!!!
I bought this crimper to add volume to my roots It crimps my hair well and it lasts all day. It heats up fast and doesn't burn my hair and I have fine, thin hair, so that was a huge concern for me. I would definitely recommend trying this little gem out before shelling out large amounts for the same thing, because I think you will be pleasantly surprised in the value you get with this crimper. I am very happy with this purchase!!

Great volumizer at a fraction of the cost of other products.

Works amazingly well!!!
Wow, this product really works well! I was honestly amazed! It adds complete volume to the roots of your hair. No need for messy hair products at all (not even hair spray!) I would suggest watching a couple of Utube tutorials before using. One of the best purchases I've ever made.

I ordered this with reservation, but to my total delight, this little tool works so well. My hair is so much fuller and stays full all day. On the second day sometimes I have to do a little touch up if I get really fussy and want it look fresh, but after this, the fullness would easily last through the third day. I no longer have to use a lot of hair spray. To help preventing damaging my hair with the heat, I started using some thermal protector hair spray before blow drying and crimping. The crimping process usually takes less than 5 minutes. I feel so much more confident with a full head of hair and totally satisfied with this purchase.

Volume at last!!
I have search the world (or at least some of it) for a solution to my flat hair. I have thick hair but it always seems to go flat on top. I've used more products then I care to count but nothing really gave me volume in my crown that stayed for any length of time. I had seen and almost bought a Voloom but just couldn't get past the price. Then someone in one of the reviews for Voloom said you could just use a regular crimper. So I started researching it and found this one for $23. Worth a try and worth the money. I section off my hair and crimp the hair close to the roots where I need volume. The very top layer I don't crimp so it covers the crimped hair. You can find videos on YouTube. How did I never know about this? I'm going to ask my good friend and hairdresser that the next time I see her
