When it comes to styling your hair there are so many different options out there to choose from. Many times, it try and try again before you find the perfect match for your hair type and length.
However, with today’s technology that hunt and deliver experience has become so much easier. Many options today are designed for all hair types and have built in settings that you can customize for your perfect look.
List below are my favorites, most are under $100 with the exception of a good hairdryer. This is an investment that you want to make. You want to make sure it has a “cool” button setting, with at least 3 different options for heat. A fast and slow setting is just as important. This will ensure you getting the best results for the money you spend.
When choosing any of these tools, you always want to look at reviews and ensure it lives up to it’s name. You want a dryer that will dry your hair fast, but will not burn it out at the same time. You want a curling or straightening tool that has actual heat settings so you can set it to work with your hair type (lower settings for fine hair, higher settings for thick coarse hair).
Always make sure you are buying from a company or site that will allow you to return the product within a certain timeframe if it simply isn’t working out for you. Sephora is the best, they will allow you to return just about anything in any amount of time. The last problem you want to have is an expensive styling tool that just doesn’t work for you.
So, here are my top 5 picks for 2015. I’m really interested to see if you agree or if you have options that work better for you. It’s amazing how many choices are out there with technology that is a phenomenal!

How do I use it: Use on dry hair only. Plug in and hold the On/Off button for about three seconds to turn it on. If your hair is fine or over-processed, choose a lower temperature setting; coarse or heavy hair will need a higher setting.
