The Perfecter Fusion Styler is a heated round brush that claims to replace four essential hair styling tools while adding volume, body, shine and creating smooth, frizz free hair for all textures and lengths.
Created by stylist Maria McCool, the Perfecter Fusion Styler is a TriStar Product Inc. product, sold under the As Seen on TV brand. TriStar Product Inc. is based in New Jersey.

The Perfecter’s website claims that it can act as a flat iron, curling iron, blowdryer (for styling purposes, not hair drying) and round brush and is effective for all hair types.
How the Perfecter Fusion Styler Works
Much like a curling iron, you plug in the Perfecter Fusion Styler to heat up the styling brush and then you simply use it to style your hair. It can heat to either 356 degrees F or 392 degrees F. How exactly you use it will depend on what hair style you are trying to achieve.
The makers of the Perfecter Fusion Styler claim that it gets its styling prowess from its dual heaters that evenly heat up the styling surface, the top quality nylon teeth of the comb that sits on the heating surface and the “ion ceramic” barrel that results in “added smoothness, shine and body.”
One of the selling points is that while the brush does heat up, it doesn’t get too hot to touch, like a curling iron does.
A quick search online, however, turns up many reviews that say there are similar products like the Perfecter Fusion Styler for less money. Some reviews have also said that the curls they did with the Perfecter Fusion Styler did not last as long as they do when they are created using other tools, like hot curlers. Most people simply said it didn’t look like it was worth the money when you could easily find something similar for less.
Perfecter Fusion Styler Pricing, Shipping & Return Policies
The Perfecter Fusion Styler sells for $99.99. You can either choose to make 1 payment of $99.99 or 3 payments of $33.33. For that, you get the Perfecter Fusion Styler, plus a detangle brush, 3 styling clips and a thermal travel case.

Good after trial and error
I'm not sure what to think of the negative reviews and no I do not work for the company. At 1st this tool didn't seem as good as the informational and I really thought I was going to return it. It did tangle my hair up once so I decied to go on YouTube and watch some other reviews. Honestly this will work for you if you practice and learn how to use it on your hair.
Everyone's hair is different and I had to learn how to use it on mine. Watching the models in the infomercial is just unrealistic. I also feel like it damages my hair less than a flat iron or a curling wand if I need a break from the 2. The curls last for as long as I can wait to wash my hair. My only reason for not giving it 5 stars is the price as I think it can be more competitive and the fact that it's so hard to clean the bristles.
Lint gets on them and sometimes you smell strands of burnt hair when you 1st turn it on. So I make it a habit to clean it after every use which can be very time consuming and it is still hard to get all of the residue and hair out.
Overall I would recommend this as long as you have patience to experiment what works for your hair type. I have coarse curly hair and this tends to work best for curls for me as my hair is too coarse and needs a curling iron for straightening.
cheap, poor quality, and my credit card info was stolen right after
The Perfecter is cheaply made and much poorer quality than something you could get at Sally Beauty for 1/4th the price. I sent mine back and was reimbursed for the payment without issue. As another reviewer had also mentioned, I had fraudulent charges post to my credit card after purchasing the item. I have no proof that my info was stolen while purchasing the item but it is awfully coincidental.
I bought this because I have back and neck problems and hae trouble doing my own hair, number one it does not curl as they say it does, even with their lotion I bought to go with it, then after using it for only 3 months it stopped working at all and I do not use it every day. So I would call it the biggest rip off I have ever seen.
This product stinks it is the worst. Do not waste your money
This does not work. It is so cheaply made. Do not fall for this utter scam.
Perfecter Styler experience
I bought the Perfecter Styler and tried it the following day. I have color treated hair and lots of body but frizzy.
So after watching the infomercials, I decided it might help but When I tried it first just combing it thru my hair it did nothing. My hair is still frizzy – then tried curling it and my hair got caught in the bristles. so I combed my hair out and tried again but only curled just ends but still frizzy.
So I will be returning it and will let my facebook friends know that this is junk anx not to waste $100 thats just too much money throw away.
Not Good Results with Perfecter
The Perfecter worked great the first time I used it. Curls looked nice but very quickly flattened & have have natural curly hair so my hair always takes to creating more curls. The cost was inexpensive so I did not bother sending it back, I just threw it out as I would not recommend it to anyone. Save your self the money & use a flat iron to curl your hair. Does a WAY better job. Perfecter is not worth it, total scam !
loving your product. It makes my hair look and feel wonderful!
I reseceived this product yesterday and used it right away and went out and so many compliments on my hair. It was every thing they said it was on TV. Easy to busy it took me no time to do my hair. My boyfriend couldn't believe how shiny it was and soft looking. I had no product in it and I woke up this morning with the body and curl still in it.
Wow I love this product can"t say enough about it. Will tell all my friends to get rid of their flat irons curling irons and jump on board to have beautiful healthily hair. Thank you so much!
Absolutely Love This Styler !!!
I only wish I had this product when I was a teen. I have very curly and frizzy hair and have kept it short for many years because it's just too wild. The moment I purchased the profector my hair had looked amazing, it somehow gets rid of all the frizz and leaves my hair smooth with nice curls in a matter of 5 min. I have let my hair grow to shoulder length and would not go anywhere without this styler. I know dome people have complained about their hair being tangled in the brush, you have to unroll your hair the same way you rolled it up. Don't pull it out of your hair. Simple to use and I need no products on my hair before or after styling. It won't burn your face or neck like other curling irons or your hair. I Love it
need a small barrel perfector.... A.S.A.P.
love it : ) but not so good on short hair... would like to see a smaller barrel one soon !!!!!
This is a wonderful product
I purchased this after seeing the infomercial on TV. I went to their web site and purchased it. I was skeptical, but since it had a money back guarantee I ordered it.
I have been using it for almost a month and my hair has never looked better. I have short hair and I can style it straight or wavy and also in larger curls. You should not put any product on your hair and should let it dry naturally rather than blow-drying it. It makes your hair very shiny and as I said, it is the best thing I have ever used on my hair. After I have it styled I use a very light hair spray to hold the set.
I highly recommend it. You must follow the instructions as if you use a styling product or try to use it on wet hair, it will not work!
I have never had any tangles or broken ends. It really smooths the hair. I love that I can do it with one hand for most of my head!
Bad Product with Customer Service which Lies
I bought the Perfector in September after seeing it on the Shopping Channel. They said that there was a 60 day return if you were not satisfied. I only buy products that have at least a 60 day warranty . Within a month the product broke and would not heat up on the high setting. I phoned to find out how to return it and was told that my 30 days were up. I argued that it was 60 days and the service rep sent me a return form by email. I never received a new one or my money back. Upon another phone call to them they said that they would do nothing but if I wanted the broken one back they would send it to me for $20.00+ postage. I requested to speak to a manager and was told she would call within the week. No one phoned and no one cares. I spent $124.69 and have nothing to show for it. Please do not buy this product. It is very poorly made and I also agree with others that the sellers are scammers.
I am happy with the Perfecter and the nice brush and case. Like the other reviewers I cannot make curls that flip up on my shoulder length fine hair, However it really does a nice job of straightening it or turning it under a bit. No it doesn't make it supper curly but it does seem to be better on my hair than my other hair stylers that I was using to get the same look and it does it in less time.
So for a simple look of either straight or turned under it really does the trick for my fine, wavy, dry, color- treated hair whether I brow dry it before or let it dry with its natural curls. The Perfecther comes with nice switches that heat up in moments not minutes, and have an auto-shut off which is nice.
It is easy to pack and simple. I have never liked a straightner - but this product does what a straightner does and adds a little curl at the ends and its easy, it also adds a little lift at the top.
The Perfector did not help with my fine hair. It does not do what it claims to do for fine hair. I am able to style my hair better with my curling iron while this did poorly at styling and did not last.
The people writing Positive reviews are all working at Perfecter
I am missing huge chunks of my hair because this system tangles it up and rips ur hair. The customer service reps seemed like they didn't give two shits about this product or their job. A bunch of assholes... There will soon be somebody who sue's them due to the loss of hair, deprivation, and junk they recieved while getting this product. DO NOT BUY IT IS A SCAM THEY WILL TAKE UR CREDIT CARD NUMBER AND USE IT ELSE WHERE!!!
Horrible! Run Run - They're Scammers
Saw advertisement on TV around xmas 2013 - thought I'd give it a try, but yes whats mentioned in previous reviews is true. Wish I had read reviews prior. It tangles your hair, the hair creme, stinks..and is not worth the $19.99.. I'm being charged looks like for close to three months now. I never authorized more than one months supply of the creme - and just yesterday got my 3rd credit card deduction.
I'm so upset! And I haven't been able to get through to them to stop the deduction. But once I do, they'll hear me alright. Please don't fall for this product - its way too pricey for how it works!
Very happy with this product
I read all of the comments AFTER I had purchased this product at a Showtime store and it was final sale. I was really scared and nervous after reading all the negative reviews when I got home, but my co-worker liked it so much, I thought I'd take my chances. I am so glad that I had not read the comments before I bought it because I would not have bought a wonderful product!
I bought it for my daughter who has natural curl and frizz and very fine hair. She hasn't tried it yet but that's ok because I'm not giving it up anyways! I have short very straight hair and I can finally curl the fine hair on the nape of my neck that I have never been able to do before thanks to this product. No more nasty burns! I can lift and curl my bangs off my forehead too and nothing has ever worked before with my cow licks and double crown until I used this product!
Lesson: don't let the naysayers make your decisions for you, more often than not they are wrong!
DONT BUY IT! ordered it for my mom because she really wanted it but after the second payment she decided she didn't want it anymore. we called to refund it and the lady told us we could keep it and they'll waive our third payment but LIES they charged us 18.99. when we called about it the dumb lady said she forgot and will only refund us 15. pissed me off. whoever likes this product is dumb. more like the tangler, gets your hair messed up is what it is does. do not buy!
Don't waste your money especially if you have long hair! Very hard to make any curls!
I have long medium texture hair and tried for hours to get this thing to curl my hair! If that's your objective you are better off with a regular curling iron. Did not make my hair shiny but got all tangled in my hair when I tried to use it. The free styling lotion that comes with it smells awful and the clips are very cheap. Sent it back and they would not give me a free ups label to do it!
Don't give them your bank card number!
I ordered two of these and I Iike the product fine. Problem is they took my first payment out then my bank card number was hacked and so I had to cancel my card number. They called me and I informed them I don't have a bank debit card anymore and they told me the only form of payment they could accept was a debit card. I offered to pay the full remaining balance by check and they wouldn't accept that either.
Then I purchased a prepaid visa debit card to pay the balance owed of $119 and called them back to pay it off and thu wouldn't accept it as payment either. All they seem to be concerned about is getting a bank account debit card number.
I think this is a scam to get your numbers and they are giving the numbers to other companies & hackers. All I know is they either mail me a bill and I will send then a money order or they just will not get paid. Also they don't want returns either.
I don't recommend ordering anything from this company!
My daughter lost a huge area of her hair
Gets tangled up very badly in hair. My daughter lost a huge area of her hair, because the perfecter tangled up so badly in it, the device had to be cut away from her head.
I would never recommend this product to anyone. The name is so misleading -Perfector , the title should be Destroyer(it gets tangled up in your hair so badly, that it needs to be cut out, causing a large loss of hair. Beware . I had a terrible experience with this product. This product should get no stars at all (terrible).
