5 Must-Have Tools for Hair Stylists

Ashley Taylor Anderson

A hair stylist can have all of the skills in the world, but unless her tools are top-notch, she won’t be happy with the results. To avoid artistic frustration, consider adding these 5 tools to your beauty arsenal.

1. Turbo Power TwinTurbo 3800 Ionic & Ceramic Blow Dryer

While the name may be a mouthful, this hair dryer is worth every syllable. With its flexible heat settings, nozzles, and speeds, it’s a stylist’s dream. Plus it dries hair quickly without heat-damaging follicles—a win for your clients, too.

2. SARAHPOTEMPA Ceramic Styling Iron

This flat iron is pretty darn smart. It automatically turns off and on, reduces heat between uses, and remembers your favorite heat settings.

3. Spornette G-36XL Porcupine Brush

This round brush has a mix of nylon and boar bristles so it evenly brushes hair without pulling. There’s a reason this brush has won a Best of Beauty award from Allure four times—it’s awesome.

4. Hot Tools Spring Curling Iron

Not only is the curling iron a consistent performer and available in a variety of barrel widths—it’s also one of the most affordable options on the market.

5. Spilo Duckbill Clips

Don’t hate on the $4 pack of duckbill clips. These things are lifesavers, whether you’re doing pincurls, blow-drying, using an iron, or creating a magnificent updo.
