Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer, $60
The oval brush design on Revlon’s One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer uses nylon pin and boar bristles to create supermodel-worthy volume on top and full-bodied curls at the bottom. Think of it as a blowout brush with magic powers that dries hair faster with less damage.
Tyme Iron Pro, $190
When we discovered the Tyme Iron Pro, our jaws dropped a little. Why? The heat tool features a curved exterior and flat iron interior so you can create literally any style within minutes. It’s like a straightener and curling iron in one. Plus it has an automatic shutoff so you always have piece of mind that your house isn’t burning down.
Dyson Airwrap Styler, $550
It’s super expensive (and out of stock currently) for good reason. If your goal is to avoid dry time before styling, healthier hair, and an overall style then you should seriously consider the Dyson Airwrap Styler. Utilizing a phenomenon known as the Coanda effect, the high-tech heat tool can wave, smooth, and volumize with no extreme heat. The full set includes six attachments to meet all styling needs including barrels, smoothing brushes, a pre-styling dryer, and more.

DevaCurl Dryer & Diffuser Combo, $160
Like all our curly crushes will tell you, a curl’s best friend is the DevaCul Diffuser aka DevaFuser. Designed for wavy, curly, and extra-curly hair, the DevaFuser dries/enhances curls and banishes frizz so you can spend less time styling and more time bouncing.
Beachwaver S1 Dual Voltage Curling Iron, $129
We’re major fans of the original Beachwaver S1, you know, the ceramic rotating barrel that creates beachy waves with just the push of a button—no arm workout required. But we’ve fallen extra hard for the Dual Voltage version because thanks to its dual voltage options, you can travel with it anywhere in the world. Bonus: this baby’s good for all hair types.
Drybar High Tops Self-Grip Rollers, $10
Girls with thin or flat hair can stop praying for a flat blowout fix and cop these Drybar Rollers which create mega-volume at the crown in a cinch. The self-grip material allows them to stay put so you can place them anywhere that needs a lift. For best results use them when your hair is still warm from a blowout and keep in for 10 to 15 minutes. Or roll them into damp hair then concentrate your dryer on those sections and remove.
Amika Polished Perfect Straightening Brush, $120
A straightener in brush form—does it get any better? Amika’s Straightening Brush uses iRed beam technology to preserve moisture and smooth hair sans heat damage. Simply glide through in sections from root to tip for a shiny glass look.
