About Perfecter Fusion Styler

The Perfecter Fusion Styler is an “As Seen on TV” all-in-one hair styler brush that claims to give you salon results in just 3 minutes, including instant shine, volume, and body. In addition, the Perfecter is claimed to fully heat in as little as one minute, and to remain cool to the touch while in use.

The Perfecter Fusion Styler was invented by stylist Maria McCool, and is manufactured by Tristar Products based out of Fairfield, NJ. This company specializes in a wide variety of “As Seen on TV” products, including the Power Cooker, Clear TV Antenna, Flex-Able Hose, and many more. Tristar holds a B+ rating with the Better Business Bureau, despite having more than 1,000 closed complaints over the past three years.

Regarding the Perfecter Fusion Styler specifically, we’ve accumulated more than 100 customer reviews about the product over the past several months, and have found that the overwhelming majority are negative. With this in mind, the most common complaints are as follows:

Failure to work as advertised. This includes everything from not performing properly to severe hair tangling. In fact, more than one HighYa reviewer claimed that the Perfecter Fusion Styler became so entangled in their hair that it actually had to be cut out.

Poor quality construction. This includes everything from suddenly ceasing to turn on after 20-30 days, to teeth breaking and falling off after a very short period of time.

Extreme difficulty obtaining a refund. A very common theme running throughout HighYa customer reviews includes extremely long wait times (<30 minutes), sudden hang ups, needless transfers to other departments, constant “upsells” and rebates aimed at convincing you not to process a refund, and much more. Essentially, the company appears to create as much distraction as possible prior to authorizing a refund.

To add insult to injury, even once the manufacturer has signed for the package, numerous complaints claimed that the company will deny ever having received it. More often than not, customers appear to have addressed the problem with their credit card company long before a solution was offered by the manufacturer (see more about this in the Bottom Line section).

Finally, several customers even claimed that their credit card information was compromised soon after placing their order, which resulted in hundreds of dollars in fraudulent charges (see more about this in the Bottom Line section).

How the Perfecter Fusion Styler Works

The Perfecter Fusion Styler is claimed to combine a curling iron, flat iron straightener, dryer, and heated round brush into one easy to use device. In fact, the manufacturer claims that the Perfecter is “the most revolutionary, new hair care tool ever invented,” and that its fusion styling technology results in ceramic heat that helps shine and smooth your hair, while the ionic technology helps fight frizz, hydrate, and heal your hair.

The Perfecter Fusion Styler can be used on two temperature settings: Low (356 degrees) for thin or fine hair, and high (392 degrees) for thick or coarse hair. Despite this heat, the Perfecter website claims that the bristles never become hot to the touch, which even allows you to use both hands for greater styling control.

The Perfecter Fusion Styler is claimed work with all hair types, and to be as easy to use as brushing your hair.

Perfecter Fusion Styler Pricing & Refund Policy

The Perfecter Fusion Styler is priced at three payments of $33.33 (total of $99.99), plus free shipping and handling. On top of this, you’ll also receive three free gifts (a $40 claimed value):

  • Thermal travel case
  • Detangle brush
  • 3 styling clips

In addition, you’ll also be able to enroll in the Calista Tools autoship program, which means you’ll receive one bottle of Achieve 10 styling cream for just $7.99 S&H. Beginning 30 days from your original order, you’ll start receiving a new bottle of Achieve 10 once per month, and your credit card will be charged $19.99 each time.

Next, you can also choose an extended 2-year warranty for $3.99 per payment ($11.97 single pay), or a 4-year warranty for $6.99 per payment ($20.97 single pay). Keep in mind that if you’re a CT, NJ, NV, NY, or PA resident, you’ll also be subject to state sales tax.

Finally, you can pay an additional $14.99 for FedEx Express shipping, $19.99 for 2-Day, and $29.99 for Overnight.

All Perfecter Fusion Stylers come with a 60-day, “no questions asked” money back guarantee (see more about this in the following section). Unfortunately, no other information about this guarantee is provided on the product’s website.

Bottom Line: Is the Perfecter Fusion Styler a Scam?

Based on our research, as well as the more than 100 Perfecter Fusion Styler customers who took the time to write a review on HighYa, we feel fairly confident stating that the product is a scam.

As we noted above, the vast majority of HighYa reviews give the product just one star, and include complaints of poor quality, failure to work as advertised, extraordinarily bad customer service, fraudulent credit card charges, and an almost impossible ability to receive a refund.

While this is a common occurrence for “As Seen on TV” products, and there are only a handful of manufacturers for thousands of products, it seems to be especially bad with the Perfecter Fusion Styler.

Furthermore, as we mentioned in our Perfecter Fusion Styler article, most hair devices intended to perform more than one function often fail to do any of them adequately. In layman’s terms, they just don’t work, and the Perfecter appears to be no different.

After all is said and done, we strongly recommend against placing an order for the Perfecter Fusion Styler. Based on the hundreds of customer reviews we’ve encountered during our research—both on HighYa and elsewhere—it doesn’t work like you may think it does, it won’t last very long, and you’ll likely throw your hands up in frustration long before successfully obtaining a refund. Instead, save your time and your hard-earned money.

    Love it

    I have been using this for 3 or 4 years; it does what they say and it works well and smooths my hair. BUT THEY BREAK. I was about to purchase my third one and decided to try something else at half the price. For $100.00 these should last longer than a year or year and a half.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

  • Terrible product

    I bought this brush a while ago. I thought I liked it. Actually, I thought it was not a bad product. I recently used it and the brush got so tangled in my hair that I actually ruined my hair, no thanks to the brush. I was so angry I threw the brush out so that I would never subject my hair to such abuse. I followed the directions, and still, my hair got so tangled I had such a hard time getting the brush out of my hair. Maybe they shouldn't sell the product; kind of dangerous. I would not recommend this product to anyone.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

  • What was I thinking?

    You know the adage "If it looks too good to be true, it probably is?"

    The Perfecter Fusion Styler is an example of that adage. My hair is, and always has been, very thin, fine, and straight as can be. I turned on QVC and saw the answer to my problem! The Perfecter would curl my straight, short, fine hair and make it look fuller.

    I purchased the .5" barrel in my choice of color. I set the temperature appropriate for me, and styled my hair. By mid-afternoon, my hair did indeed look fuller, and very frizzy. I have used it several times since and got the same results.

    I would not recommend this product to a friend.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Complaint, very poor service and still no product

    I purchased the Perfector brush styler from the company's website on 7/02/17. It was delivered on 7/11/17. The product sent was not the brush styler that I ordered. I called customer service and was sent a return postage paid email which to print out with instructions to return the incorrect product to Wallingford, CT.

    I repackaged the item and used the mailing label to send the product back on 7/11/17 at the US Post Office in Frisco, TX 75035.

    I called customer service on 7/24/17 to check on the status of my product and was advised that the returned product had not been received. Really, two weeks from Texas to Connecticut?

    The customer service agent by the name of Rashid was very rude and said he could do nothing until the unit was received and then hung up on my call. He said to check with the post office.

    I am sorry that I didn't order the product from Amazon as it has now been almost a month and I still do not have the product I ordered on July 2nd, but my credit card was charged immediately.

    If anyone reads this review, please do not order from this company. I intend to advise everyone that I know about this situation and the very poor service that I have received.

    Thank you.

    Received wrong item

    • Rhode Island,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I ordered the Perfecter Fusion and received the Perfecter Ultra. They are absolutely different products. Customer Service said it was an upgrade, but it doesn't matter because I wanted the Fusion. I had to send the Ultra back for a postage cost of $13.96.

    I would not reorder the Fusion.

    Brilliant

    I absolutely love this brush. Anyone who knows me knows how fussy I am about my hair. I have used Braun Independent for years but now it is obsolete so I have been struggling to find a substitute.

    This brush is perfect for my hair, which is shortish and quite thick. My hair used to get very dry, but since I have been using this brush (don't ask me how) but the condition has improved. I find it extremely easy to use. I just take a section of hair, start at the end and roll the brush down to the roots. It comes out easily and with not one tangle. I can't comment on how it works on long hair.

    It's a sturdy brush, so I'm hoping it will last a while. I am so pleased with it.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    Not worth the money

    • Verified Reviewer

    I bought mine about 3 years ago. My first problem I noticed immediately was that unless I used tiny sections of hair and was REALLY careful my hair tangled. Then within the first 4 to 5 months the teeth started falling out. Got an Instyler at Target for $40, works just as good.

    CANCELLED even before receiving product.

    • Indiana,
    • Sep 14, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    When purchasing this product, it was clearly stated that FOUR payments in the amount of $19.00 would be deducted from my Paypal account.

    Upon receiving an email from this company it clearly showed FIVE PAYMENTS in the amount of $19.00, to be deducted from my Paypal account.

    Tried sending an email, but it was returned as it could not be sent to this address: "info@buyperfecter.com".

    Who wants to buy from a company that is UNTRUTHFUL?

    Utterly Useless Piece of Kit

    • England,
    • Aug 12, 2016
    • Verified Reviewer

    I unfortunately own one of these things. My first experience with it was with getting it tangled in my hair. It took twenty minutes for my boyfriend to remove it for me. My third attempt at using the thing, after the person who bought it for me asked about it, resulted in me nearly having to rip a segment of my hair out at the roots to untangle it.

    On the occasions it doesn't decide it wants to force my hair into an abusive marriage, it doesn't add lift, wave OR curl. It makes, at best, loose, rubbish curls that are really more of a half-hearted twist slightly to the side and tangles in hair. I will grant that it does decrease frizz, but that's not saying much.

    The looks in the booklet were CLEARLY created in a salon by a professional using REAL hair styling tools. It's an expensive piece of rubbish and I'm unfortunately stuck with it.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Terrible and a complete waste of money

    Poor construction, uncomfortable to use and doesn't get hot or do any of the things it claimed. I brought mine to my hair stylist to get his professional opinion and he used it on me and said to try to get a refund. It was not very user friendly and only got warm. Please be aware!
