Essential Styling Tools for Flawless Hair

Finding the best styling tools for unruly hair can often be a lifelong chore in itself. What happens when your trusty straightening iron decides to sadly stop working, and you’ve got an important event coming up?

While this situation is all to common (and mostly inspired by real events), we share just some of the best styling tools you need now.

Straightening iron

If you are absolutely addicted to the idea of super-straight, flyaway-free hair, then a straightening iron is a must-have in your cupboard. Choose one which meets the needs of your lifestyle (travel-size is best if you’re constantly living out of a suitcase), and think of it as an investment, well, isn’t it?

Curling wand

We seriously envy anyone with curly hair, since you have the option of going curly one day, and super-straight the next. The rest of us have to fake it with the help of a trusty curling wand.

Since there are so many available right now, just remember one simple rule: thin barrels create tight curls, and thicker barrels are best for achieving a natural, beachy look. Most also come equipped with a handy glove to keep your hand safe from the heat (and imminent burns).

Hair Dryer

Keep hair looking frizz-free by investing in a trusty hair dryer. You don’t have to break the bank and choose a model which looks fancy, but doesn’t actually deliver fantastic results. You only need it to dry your hair! Make sure to always use a diffuser to keep hair from burning, or possibly getting caught inside the motor – again, inspired by real life events.

Hair Rollers

Unless you love using a curling wand, then hair rollers aren’t really an essential. These are for women with shorter hair who find it almost impossible to use any other device for long-lasting curls. It is absolutely your choice if you prefer hot rollers, or the old-school velcro variety.
