Is your Pinterest board filled with hair tutorials you’ve never tried because, well, you’re hopeless when it comes to hair tools? We can’t blame you. Even what should be a simple at-home blow-out feels like it requires at least three hands instead of two, and flat iron curls? Basically impossible. Well, these three tools will change the way you style your hair — because they will literally do all the work for you. Yes, you read correctly. You basically just have to hold them and press a button!
The Beachwaver Pro
The Beachwaver Pro helps you get soft beachy waves worthy of the most glamorous day at the beach, no matter the time of year. This curling rod is different than your average iron for a variety of reasons.
First, like newer curling devices, this is more of a wand than a rod because it doesn’t have a large clamp that holds a large portion of your hair in place while you style. The Beachwaver’s small clamp holds only the ends of your hair while the rod rotates pulling hair along its length for a perfect curl. Second, as mentioned, it’s automatic. You simply clamp a small section of hair, choose left or right, depending on the side of your head your hair is on, and press the “Go” button.
There are multiple speed and heat options for beginners, and the wand only rotates when you’ve got your finger on the button. Plus, it’s ceramic and infused with tourmaline to protect hair from heat styling, heats up in 30 seconds and has an automatic shut-off after 30 minutes.
Conair Infiniti Pro Curl Secret
This automatic curler delivers tighter curls, even ringlets, compared to the Beachwaver’s looser curls. Although, with the right setting, you can achieve a softer look. The Curl Secret is probably so named because the actual curling happens inside the chamber of the device, meaning you don’t get to watch. You open the chamber and out falls a perfect curl.
This device, while totally automatic, does take some practice because you have to decide how long to keep the hair inside, which determines how tight a curl you get. Besides that, this tool does all the work. You put a strand inside the barrel where you want the curl to start and squeeze it closed. The hair is pulled inside, wrapped around a tourmaline coated roller and heated up while you wait a matter of seconds. You can do your whole head in 15 minutes.
Conair Infiniti Pro Spin Air Brush
If you love the look of a smooth salon blow out, this spinning hot-air round brush will change your life. It spins in two directions while shooting out hot air so it dries hair around a round brush, just like your hairdresser would, except without the professional.
You can roughly dry hair with a traditional hair dryer first as the Spin Air Brush will take longer than a regular blow dryer, then when hair is about 80 per cent dry, divide it into sections. Wrap the ends of small sections around the brush and press the button to curl, either to the left or right. For best results, hold the brush still while pressing the button and let the brush do the moving. This dries and delivers a smooth curl at the same time.
Surprisingly, hair does not get caught up in this device. Don’t worry, you won’t have to cut your hair out of a tangled mess caught up in the spinning brush at your scalp because the brush’s bristles are soft enough to gently pull hair out of if your spin gets out of control. This tool does take practice, but it’s worth it.
