Let’s just say it: hair tools are intimidating. Not only can they be expensive, but there’s also a lot of them out there to choose from. From blow dryers, to straighteners, to curlers, to wands, to straightening brushes, to everything in between, how are you supposed to know what tools fit into your current routine?  

Alternatively, maybe you have beloved tools that you’ve held on to for a tad too long (we’re looking at you, person who has had the same straightener since high school) and it’s time to switch things up. The technology has really come a long way, so it’s time to treat yourself and replace the main tools that allow you to achieve your personal hair style.
