Awkward, heavy and clunkyHard to use. Heavy to hold while trying to open the clamp with one hand. Unclamping to get your hair in is so hard. The on/off button is in the way of where you hold to unclamp so it keeps turning off. So disappointed. Nice big waves. Show details

Doesn’t workI purchased one just after having my baby. I had no time to even try it. I was so excited to finally try it now that I have time to do my hair now that bub is a bit older. Only to find my brand new VS Sassoon won’t even turn on. Have tried multiple plugs. It has been sitting in the box. How does it not work!? Show details

Waste of moneyPossibly the worst hair curling tool I’ve used. Hair looks amazing straight after styling it, but within 30min it’s almost straight. I’ve watched videos on how to use it and have tried it on damp hair, dry hair, freshly cleaned hair and a day after washing. Nothing works, extremely disappointed!!! Show details

Excellent product for the priceI have wavy and super frizzy hair but this one always gives a smooth and shiny finish to my hair.
Easy to use and totally worth the price (which in fact is quite affordable)
I would say, it's a must have for girls with my hair type. Show details

Great straightenerQuick heating up, keeps my hair smooth and silky for hours even in a humid climate! Best value for money, have had GHD straighteners in the past and whilst they do the same job. This was a fraction of the price! Show details

Just the right size for short hairI am 70 and am growing my hair from very short to a chin length bob. This tool is excellent for an inexperienced lady to put some curl into my hair for a change. Easy to use. Does a good job at an inexpensive price. Show details

The perfect curler for tighter curls or loose beach wavesFor $20 from Priceline, this is my preferred curler over other expensive curlers.
The temperature settings are an awesome feature (doesn't get too hot - no.4 is the perfect temp) and having the clip allows you the curler to hold the hair so it's super user friendly and the curls look perfect. Show details

Does a good jobThis tool is easy to use and the biggest advantage is that it is very light, so it doesn't tire your wrist and hand. The power button is placed in an a very inconvenient spot, as it's easy to accidentally turn it off while styling. Care must also be taken, as it very easy to burn your fingers if you touch the styling section of the tool. Show details

OverratedI bought this hoping to achieve easier curls than my straightener can do. I do feel this product is overrated and you are paying for the GHD brand.
Creates a nice wave after the curl drops.
It did come with a free curl spray which I love this product its fantastic! Show details

Works wellI use it to blow dry my hair and it works well. Bought from Harvey Norman.wish it had more accessories but overall it’s great value for the price and is more powerful than the hair dryers I have had in the past. I will recommend it to anyone who needs to get a hair dryer.

When it works, it’s pretty great, when my hair gets stuck, it’s terrifying and dangerouMy hair got stuck for no apparent reason the first day I tried it although before that it worked with ease. I was using it correctly. I’m too scared to try it again. My husband has lost the receipt :-( if the manufacturer reads this, please email me because I need reassurance before I use it again Show details

Great until the fan diedI loved this item until it stopped working. Well, the plates still heat up and I can still use it, but the fan - the product's big claim to fame - conked out very quickly. Not good value for money, and not good quality when the thing that's supposed to make your product great and set it apart doesn't last. Show details

Love itOnly used it once so far, but shocked that a $30 wand works so well! Glad I didn't waste money on a exxy product when this is perfect for my needs. And if your wondering like I did, I much prefer this type to the wands that clamp onto your hair. Can do be chunks of hair or smaller ones. Definitely glad I now have this in my cupboard! Show details

Types of Hair Stylers

Section of hair wrapped around hair curling tongs

Curling tongs

Also called curling irons, these styling appliances (pictured, above) are designed with a lever and a clamp, so you can securely place sections of hair inside the clamp to stop it unravelling. Since curls are wound tightly in their clamped position, they produce ringlet-style curls that are generally more tight and polished. If you prefer the ease of use that curling tongs offer, but prefer looser curls, you can opt for tongs with a larger barrel size.

Curling wands

Wands are designed with a cone-shaped heating element that tapers off at the end. To use them, you manually wrap a section of hair around the barrel. You can spread the hair section out over the length of the barrel with lots of gaps for a looser curl, or wind it up in a tight spiral for a more springy curl that looks more like ringlets.

Either way, keep a firm grip on the end of your hair section. If it's held too loose, you might accidentally let go, or the curl won't have any definition or body. When you're using a curling wand, your hand will be close to the heating element virtually at all times, so wear a heat-protecting glove.

Automatic curlers

These may appeal to you if you find using a curling wand or tong to create manual curls fiddly or stressful. An automatic curler will let you insert a section of hair into a designated part of the appliance, press a button, and wait while the machine does the work for you by crafting a curl. Often curl settings allow you to select how loose or tight the curl will end up.

Flat irons used for curling

Some straighteners are also purpose-built for curling, or adding volume in the form of waves or looser curls. These flat irons will have a rounded top, as well as a swivel cord, so you can twist them in accordance with the motion of the curl you’re creating.

Creating curls using a flat iron is trickier than using a styler specifically designed for curling. However, if you’re deft with your home hair appliances, or willing to learn, a curl-friendly flat iron may save you some cash as you’ll be buying one appliance, not two.

Hair dryer brushes

These are essentially round barrel bristle brushes that incorporate a heating element. They allow you to style your hair as it dries, to infuse a bit of volume. This basically saves you the hassle of juggling a hair dryer in one hand and a round styling brush in the other; incorporating two useful hair styling products into one appliance.

Some styling brushes, like the Hairstyla HSS200, also work as hair straighteners, which simultaneously straighten and smooth hair as you brush it.

All-in-one hair stylers

All-in-one hair stylers can perform a variety of hair styling functions. For example, the Dyson Airwrap can blow-dry, straighten, add waves or curl hair. Just keep in mind that the more functions a hair styler is equipped with, the more expensive it's likely to be.
