I'm looking online for Conair dual voltage flat iron, and I find hair straighteners; are they the same thing?

I would also prefer buying one in Europe to avoid the adapter problem, but I had trouble finding one in France (Provence). I finally found one at a grocery store and it was a very small barrel (about 3/8"). However, I was just grateful to find one! (I purchased a hair dryer in Italy one year and it works great!) I also have a dual-voltage Revlon curling iron that works fine (my problem was I lost the adapter at the first stop and couldn't find an adapter to purchase - I now carry an extra adapter as well!).

Try Bed, Bath and Beyond. They carry a few, and you can always use a coupon to purchase. I like the Conair hot air brushes that are quite large in diameter, and they're about $30 is all. They dry and straighten out my wavy hair, but you can put a curl at the ends if you want.

I went to Target to buy a new curling iron before my trip to England last year. When I got it home and compared it to the one I use all the time, I found out my old one was also dual voltage. Carefully check the one you have before buying something special. My DH quipped that I'm good for the economy

My wife got hers at Target, just look for the words "dual voltage" on the package.

I almost burned down the hotel in Lugano one year. The next week I was in Switzerland on a quest to find a curling iron. I knew the word "Chaud" (hot) but kept getting hot oil, hair dryers...they don't sell them anywhere over there except in the department stores. Finally, a savvy traveler told me to ask for Babyliss. (bob-o-lee) I guess that's the Conair equiv. Anyway, the end kept flying off. I was better prepared this year.
