Score picture-perfect locks at home with these easy-to-use stylers!
By the Beauty Beat Team | May 12, 2020
Salon regulars will surely understand this: There’s a distinct high that comes with getting a professional haircut, styling, or primping session, especially if the results are exactly what you wanted or maybe even better. You step out of the salon feeling extra confident and beautiful, like you’re suddenly a new person. (No wonder post-breakup hair makeovers are a thing.) It goes without saying, then, that our hair’s state greatly affects not just our overall appearance, but also how we feel about ourselves.
Given our current situation, however, it might be a long while before we can indulge in professional salon therapy again. The good news? You can always go the DIY route, armed with a few reliable tools and maybe YouTube tutorials. (Don’t forget to subscribe to Beauty Beat TV on YouTube, BTW!)
To help you out, we’ve rounded up five easy-to-use hair tools that can help you score salon-like results—without having to leave your house.
Best for short hair:
The cute design of this banana-shaped iron isn’t just for show; it’s actually functional, too. The upper half is a removable cap that protects the barrel (making it pouch-friendly), while the compact shape allows a comfortable grip for easy use. It’s perfect for short hair—even pixies—and for styling your bangs.
Best for scoring sleek locks: Kiss New York Comb Staightener
This smart tool features a mix of ceramic and ionic comb plates that safely delivers heat as you detangle and straighten hair, giving you a shiny, frizz-free finish that looks like it’s done by a pro. Unlike other heat-styling tools, this features tourmaline ceramic technology that gives off negative ions that won’t damage hair even as you heat-style regularly.
Best for blow-drying: KISS New York Mini Insta Air 360
Another travel-friendly tool, this petite hairdryer has a patented 360° rotating air nozzle that distributes the heat evenly and applies it over a wide area—for faster, easier styling, sans the damage. The vibrating air also gently massages the scalp, while safely boosting your locks’ volume.
Best for effortless curling: KISS New York Instawave Hair Curling Iron
Love curls but hate traditional curlers or curling irons because they take so long to use? Here’s an automatic curler that’s perfect for girls on the go. It features a ceramic barrel and a self-turning Curl Dial that instantly catches and curls hair, letting you score tangle-free waves in seconds.
No need to manually twist and wrap hair sections into the tool; the unique design does the work for you—the dial moves in both left and right directions (your choice!) as the barrel gently heats up hair to lock in your curls. You can watch it in action here.
Best for creating mega volume: Wet Brush Hi-Speed Round Brush
This unique round brush features an Aero Technology™ vented design that lets you dry hair faster while allowing you to achieving major volume. It’s safe to use with your blowdryer—the nylon bristles are heat-resistant and won’t snag or pull strands.
