Just like with any type of product, dual-voltage hair straighteners have their good and bad sides. Below are the best and worst qualities of dual voltage flat iron.


They’re great for travel! Whether you’re staying in US or France, you can rest assured that your flat iron isn’t going to short-circuit or fry off your hair!

They have all the qualities of a “normal” flatiron as well, so you’re not missing out on any great components.

They tend to have a long lifespan, so you won’t have to shell out the money for a new flatiron anytime soon.


Some flatirons are marked as dual-voltage, but aren’t actually dual-voltage or don’t work the way they’re supposed to.

You need to shop more carefully than usual to ensure you’re actually getting a dual-voltage iron. You’ll probably spend a lot of time reading customer reviews to make sure the product works correctly.

You may have to follow specific instructions (like flipping a switch or pushing a button) to use the dual-voltage feature. If you forget, you might fry your iron–or your hair!


Normally, the curling irons and flat irons made by FBT are dual voltage, from 100-240V. If you have special requirements about the voltage, e.g. you want it in 100-110V, please do contact our sales consultant and let them know.
