Hair heat-styling tools

Twirl, flick and polish your hair to glorious perfection with these high-performance heat-styling tools.

Ghd Curve Soft Curl Tong, $230. Create tousled, loose curls and waves with ghd’s Soft Curl Tong. Its design enhances hair’s natural movement and volume, while an optimal top temperature of 185°C prevents burning.

VS Sassoon Miss VS Total Crimp, $42.95. This crimper with ceramic plates is a tool just made for women who love beachy hair. For a playful look, mix a few crimped sections with straight or curly pieces.

Remington Keratin & Argan Oil Nourish Straightening Brush, $99.95. What separates this heated brush from the rest is its keratin and argan oil-infused plate, which adds much-needed shine to hair while protecting them from heat damage.

Philips EasyShine Ionic Styling Brush, $39.95. This battery-operated hair brush uses ionised currents to tame frizz and give incredible shine to unruly hair. Just comb through divided sections daily for optimal results.

ClickNCurl Blowout Brush Set, $115. For a big, bouncy blow-dry, most hairdressers will use multiple round brushes – wrapping and heating hair around the barrel, then leaving each brush in place to set as it cools. This kit works on the same principle, but the brushes are replaced by rollers that share a detachable handle.

Remington ProLuxe Hair Dryer, $129.95. If you’re due to update your hairdryer, this salon-quality option ticks all the boxes. Its ionic conditioning technology reduces frizz and nourishes hair for soft, shiny results, while the dryer’s three-metre-long cord makes it easy to use.

Silver Bullet Celebrity Curls Mega Triple Barrel Curler, $89.95. Adore the look of Gatsby-style finger waves straight out of the 1920s? This fashionable style becomes a breeze with a three-barrel iron in your kit. Simply clamp 2cm-thick clusters of hair at the roots and slowly work your way towards the ends.

Silver Bullet Pod Hair Care Pack, $129. Say goodbye to those tangle-prone velcro rollers and embrace the newest velvet-covered thermal type that heat up in a cool pod designed to sit on your dresser!

VS Sassoon Wet & Dry Straightening Brush, $62.95

If it’s volume you’re after, this clever plug-in brush will straighten your locks without sacrificing lift and volume at the roots. We love that this tool can be used on both wet and dry hair, making it the perfect accessory for when you’re in a hurry.
