TECH MEETS HAIR STYLING...?!
When it comes to technology and beauty, I'm one of the first in line to see what the latest beauty gadget is all about. Times have definitely changed and I wasn't always this way...but after realizing that I was missing out on making my life easier- while being able to achieve looks and techniques I thought were never possible before! I had basically been missing out :0 In the realm of the hair world, it's no different! There have been a lot of fantastic advancements in tools and science that have brought us some awesome hair possibilities as a result :) I thought I would share my list of top picks for the best & most innovative that the worlds of hair and technology combined have to offer. If I missed any, make sure to add your comments below and let me know! ;)
THE BEAUTY CLOSET'S TOP HAIR TECH TOOLS:
Movos Wireless Styler
Yes! They've finally done it! No more cords to get in the way and cause an annoyance. This is also great for on-the-go and trips too :) You can get up to 30 minutes out of this awesome tool with a charge of the 2200mah lithium-ion rechargeable battery. You'll get professional and salon-quality results as well as the 100% titanium floating plates bring ultra-smoothness and no snagging in sight! This iron utilizes far-infrared heat technology to lock in moisture and bring frizz-free results. If you want tech with a little bit of flat-iron- this is THE way to go. The price is a bit higher than many may want to dish out and I can totally understand that one, however you are definitely getting what you pay for here and you will see the results with this tool the very first time you use it.
2. FHI Heat
Stylus Thermal Styling Brush
*clearance pricing @ jcpenney.com!
These came out a years ago, but they really weren't all that fantastic at the time. Luckily, the technology has been greatly improved upon and the versions out today work quite well. There are a couple of brands and models that really stick out for me- FHI being one of them. With this model in particular pictured above, you can choose ranges between 250-400 degrees (F). The heater is composed of ceramic which gives the tool even heating across the entire brush.
Infiniti Pro Curl Secret
Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Curler
*pricing @ jcpenney.com.
The tourmaline ceramic curl chamber allows for easy and fast curls- with little effort or stress! There are also 2 heat levels with 3 timer settings that will let you create loose, medium, or tight curls. If you're looking for a fabulous tool that heats up in 30 seconds or less for super effortless curl styling, this is the tool to get :)
Infusers have been around for a bit too, but they've gone through some updating in recent years. This one from Devacurl is really unique and will fit most hairdryers, no matter the brand. The materials it's constructed out of are composed of plastic-fiberglass so you're getting decent durability too.
5. Laila Ali
Salon Ionic Dryer
Get salon-quality results now at-home! This dryer will even accommodate a head full of curlers and that makes it a great candidate for setting styles and for at-home dyeing or highlights as well. There are 2 heat options in addition to a cool option to fit all of your hair styling needs.
WET TO DRY Rotating Iron 1-1/4"
This cool hair gadget does it all! You have the option to use this tool for either wet OR dry styling. Now you can skip the dryer and dry, straighten, or get waves all with just one iron :) there are multiple heat settings that go up to 410 degrees (F) with a rapid heat-up time of just 30 seconds.
7. Bumble and Bumble
in Mint [Limited Edition]
The days of hair chalk are over- now you can snag the same look sans the mess ;) This product makes temporary hair color fun, easy, and pretty. These colors are especially flattering for both light and darker hair colors as they have more of a pastel effect. They are buildable and you can achieve different styles based on how close and how much you target the product. Bumble and Bumble also offers these up in Cobalt, Blush pink, and Lavender! Washes out with a simple regular washing too.
