Great hair dryer
“Almost every great hairstyle begins with a blow dry, so having a good blow dryer is crucial,” says Lisa Maria Garcia, president of Farouk Systems, Inc. Garcia recommends figuring out your hair type before picking your hair dryer since every type of hair, coarse, fine, thick, etc, has its own specific needs when it comes to styling. Garcia recommends the CHI Touch 2 Dryer, which lets users customize speed, temperature, and ions. (Do you know what your hairstyle says about your personality?)
A good ceramic brush is a must-have for fabulous hair. “These brushes heat up with the blow dryer and can assist you at home to smooth out your hair or get that bouncy blowout,” says Amelia Coyne, professional stylist and colorist at Aire Blow Dry Bar. Depending on your hair type and length, and the kind of blowout you’re aiming for, Coyne says you can switch up the size of the brush, but definitely stick to ceramic. We love the Moroccanoil Thermal Ceramic Round Brush, which repels water for speedier drying, and the Bio Ionic GoldPro Ceramic Brush, an ultra-lightweight brush that infuses strands with hydration to help minimize static and flyaways.
