Isn’t it true that we always want what we don’t have? Those who have straight hair want curls and those of us who have curly hair want it straight. If you’re one of those people who fall into the latter category then it’s an easy transition from curly to straight, provided you have the right tool for the job. So here are three of the best hair irons to give you the look like you’ve just stepped out of the salon.
ghd Gold Professional
This hair straightener is suitable for use on all hair types and lengths, thanks to the incredibly smooth and contoured ceramic coated plates. The design is compact, it’s cool to touch, it comes with a protective plate so you can pack it away straight after use and the universal voltage is extremely handy if you’re travelling. It also has a sleep mode which activates after 30 minutes of inactivity so you’ll never have to worry about whether you forgot to turn it off or not. The only downfall? The cost. For one of these bad boys you’ll be looking at upwards of $220USD.
Babyliss Pro Nano Titanium
This compact hair straightener is instantly hot and reaches a temperature of 450 degrees Fahrenheit, whilst still being cool enough to handle. The titanium plated plates reduce frizz and give hair a sleek and smooth look after just one glide through the hair. There are different heat settings, depending on how curly your hair is to start with. The cost is much cheaper than the ghd gold and you can pick one up for just over $130USD.
Sedu Pro Ionic
The Sedu Pro Ionic is slightly larger in size than the previous two straighteners yet still compact. The ultra-smooth polished plates are made from tourmaline infused ceramic which reduces static and eliminates frizz and they heat up in under 25 seconds. There is an adjustable temperature control which ranges from 240-410 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on your hair type and this straightener comes in either one inch or one and a half inch plates. The cost of a Sedu Pro Ionic is approximately $120USD.
