Callista Tools Perfector brush on infomercial...

Started 1367463192.593 in Fashion Talk | Last reply 1381882986.507 by curlyhead

with 2 Q models. I was surprised to see this, since the Q usually tries to keep new items exclusive for a while. I forgot to check the price to see if it was cheaper...it looks so much like the tool I used many moons ago for styling. Does anyone have and like?

If it's the heated round brush that I bought a month or two ago.. it's F A B U L O U S!

I love it and use it every day.

I just got this a few weeks ago and really like it. Finally a product that does what it promises - at least for me. It is expensive ($100), but it works very well - heats up fast and smooths my hair.

I had this in my cart a couple of months ago and when I went to buy it I was told it was no longer available?

I agree. The thing I like most about it is that it can't burn me. I've had curling iron disasters over the years and have grown skittish of them. This is just as effective, if not more and it's safer.

It looks just like the one on QVC. I am tempted to order, but have been burned on informericals before and am hesitant. Is anyone else ordering?

I don't want to buy from an infomercial. Why doesn't QVC sell them anymore? I know it can be purchased on a website, but I would rather from QVC.

I saw the infomercial, was this on QVC before?

Yes, QVC sold it, and then it was on waitlist only. I don't think they're selling it at all now.

Go to the website and look at it. Then close your browser. When you click the X to close it, a box will pop up. It will ask why you are leaving. Choose "It's too expensive" and they will offer you a discount, LOL.

That was my experience anyway.

Has anyone ordered from the website? If so, how long did it take you to get yours? I ordered from the website last Friday evening and...mine is still in "processing" but it says 2-3 weeks for delivery. I am impatient!

What is the website that you can order?

Try Perfecter . com ---shows Maria Mc cool in photos---thanks for the input, everyone. I have the Instyler---is it much different? It does look like a tool I had many years ago...I didn't want to put in a link for fear that I should be pooFED.

And yes---it does offer a discount as you leave the site, so don't be too quick to purchase until you leave the site at least once...

Can someone tell me what the diameter is? 1", 1.5", 2"? (The website doesn't give that info.)

This informercial is actually produced by QVC , saw it at the end .

par52 - No, the infomercial was produced by Tri Star Products and Script to Screen. No mention of it being a QVC production.

It's coming to QVC in July. It's by Calista Tools, and if you notice the informercial all the models are from the Q.

It is going to be a TSV on July 26 according to the Insider...I believe it is around $75 or so.

I find that most infomercial products I'm interested in end up in the storefronts. And, for much less.

Let me know if you suddenly become interesting.

Just received my Vidal Sassoon hair dryer with round brush. Smaller brush just right for my short hair, and it has two settings. On Amazon for $15 and free shipping with my prime account. Had great reviews. Just sayin' -- pays to do some comparison shopping.

I ordered the calista hair perfector about a month ago online after seeing the infomercial on tv, I still have not received it! Their customer service keeps telling me it's on backorder. Anyone else have this problem? I'm anxious to try it, but I don't like seeing the informercial played nightly and they can't even fulfill orders timely. Maybe I should cancel and try the Vidal Sassoon Zita wrote about. Thanks for posting helpful info here.

I saw the infomercial last night and it is Patti Riley!

It's going to be the tsv soon. I am afraid my hair will tangle in it. I looked at the reviews on line and some have said their long hair gets tangled in the hot brush. Anyone have this problem?Last edited on 7/9/2013

It's likely that QVC has ordered all they could get for their upcoming TSV. I'm sure you will get yours soon. DD ordered one from the Infomercial, and we've both tried it. She has longer hair and mine is very short. It honestly didn't work for either one of us very well. It suggests if you have short, fine hair like mine to use it on the lower setting. That does nothing for me. The higher setting takes a bit longer, and does a little more, but I'm not very impressed. Wish I could be more reassuring.
