I know we can all agree on one thing. Nowadays, women do not necessarily have to visit the salon to get their hair done. With a large number of hair styling tools in the market, you can easily turn a bad hair day into a fabulous one at the comfort of your home.
You just need the right set of tools and a little know-how. If you don’t know where to start, here are a few quick suggestions of hair styling tools to get; if you still haven’t already:
1. A Flat Iron
A flat iron comes first on this list because it is a must-have! Regardless of your hair type, make a point of investing in a hair straightener. Why? These tools make it easy for you to straighten, curl, and style all kinds of hair.
And, as is evident on this BaByliss flat iron review, a hair straightener comes in handy in many ways. Most of them are quite affordable. However, take note.
When using this tool, ensure your hair is dry. Using it on wet hair can cause heat damage or breakage. Anyway, if you are still new to this, get a flat iron with a temperature indicator to ensure you use it as per your hair type needs.
2. A Blow Dryer
This tool is as simple as its name. Its function is simply to dry and straighten your hair. Apart from that, blow dryers also add volume to thin hair. It’s a styling tool that you’ll appreciate having when you are in a hurry and need a quick hair revamp.
And the best part is that they are quite affordable, these days. So, you don’t have an excuse for not owning one. But! As simple as using a blow dryer seems, you need to be careful. Use gentle heat to give your hair a nice polish. Why? Because excessive heat will break and damage your strands.
The latest greatest thing right now is the RevAir Reverse Air Dryer.
RevAir is one of the most ground-breaking hairstyling tools I’ve seen or used. EVER. I mean, it’s a real game-changer in my hair routine and is especially a great invention for busy moms!
3. A Curling Iron
When you want to look a bit fancy with beautiful curls, a curling iron always works best. They come in different sizes to achieve different types of curls. Generally, a small one makes small spiral curls while a big one makes looser and bigger waves and curls.
If you want beautiful curls without the risk of burning yourself with a traditional curling iron, you need to get the CHI Spin N Curl. While it’s best suited for shoulder-length hair, you can use it on longer hair but you’ll have to use smaller sections of hair for it to fit on the iron and the curls won’t be as tight as they will be with short to mid-back length hair. We love our Spin N Curl because it’s fast, easy to use, and safe for my 14 year old daughter to use by herself. I highly recommend it!

4. Hair Brushes and Combs
It goes without saying that these tools are essential for every woman. From the simplest hairdos to detangling hair or styling, it is unlikely to find a woman without these two. However, are you sure you have the right ones?
Well, there are different types of combs, thin and wide toothed. The difference? Wide-toothed combs are good for untangling dry and wet hair while brushes and thin toothed combs are the best for styling.
5. Adequate and Funky Hair Clips
Hair clips come in handy when sectioning hair or trying to hold it in place. Having them allows you to work on one area without the other sections distracting/disrupting you. For example, when blow-drying, you can use hair clips to separate the wet parts from the already dried sections.
So, what don’t you have? Anyway, you should remember that hair doesn’t make a woman. But good hair definitely contributes to her general appearance and attractiveness. The tools above are important for getting yourself glammed up without visiting a hair salon.
However, when purchasing them, ensure you get good quality hair styling tools. They will last long and won’t damage your hair.
