Sure, we could live with just a brush. But let’s face it, our hair can be unruly.
Just using myself as an example – if I only got out of the shower and used 1 brush, i’d probably end up like Mia from the Princess Diaries.
In fact, that WAS me before I discovered the magic of hair styling.
And it took me like forever to even get any hair tools because my parents never allowed me for whatever reason, to buy any (#strictparentclub).
But now as a woman, I am the proud owner of all the hair styling tools I want and need, which are only a couple. Keep reading to find out what tools every woman should own to achieve the style they want.
Tool #1: Blow Dryer
And not just any blowdryer. You should get a state of the art blowdryer which can save you the hassle of time and damaged hair. And you don’t need a salon quality hairdryer either. I currently switched to using the Featherweight Lux 2i from T3micro because of it’s ion generating technology to reduce frizzy hair. Not only that, but it’s also won two Allure awards, so you know all the best beauty and hair gurus are using it.
Tool #2: Hair Straightener
If my hair is anything like yours, it starts to get really odd in the back after you’re done blowdrying it. And by odd I mean still very curly and wavy while everything else is perfectly straight. Since it’s hard to get back there with a brush, a hair straightener comes to the rescue!
I’ve switched to using the SinglePass Luxe from T3micro after using a CHI iron and not being happy with how many times I would have to go over a strand. And I also use it to intentionally make waves and curls that sometimes a curling iron can’t give me. You know, mermaid waves!
Tool #3: Curling Iron
But a curling iron can also be a really handy tool to have around when you want a little more sass in your hair. I actually love the look of ringlets in my hair, especially when you add a cute bow! For a curling iron, check out my post on what I got at last years Nordstrom Anniversary Sale where I got the curling iron of my dreams! (Pssst…here’s a hint: it takes 15 seconds to heat up to full temperature!)
Tool #4: Diffuser
A diffuser is going to help out my curly hair girlfriends! It’s the perfect solution for maintaining your curls in a manageable way. I actually prefer using my diffuser because most of the time, my curls are pretty darn cute!
You just attach it to the dryer and distribute the heat evenly so that your curls are frizz free and you aren’t overheating, which is a huge no no. Dry hair is bad for anyone. Before I diffuse I like to run a little heat protectant through my hair, just in case!
Tool #5: Round Brush
But when you do blow dry your hair and you want to make it straight or have some defined waves, a round brush may be all you need. I watched my hair stylist Crystal just use a round brush to give me a gorgeous retro curl look without too much heat.
I trust the Antigravity round brush from T3micro to do the trick! It’s really easy to hold and maneuver while blowdrying. And it looks very pretty too!
