Perfect party-season hair: The luxury styling tools that make glamorous locks a breeze
Sometimes, a bad hair day can mean a bad day altogether, especially when you need to look red carpet-ready for a special event. With the festive season now in full swing, glamorous locks are a necessity 24/7, with gloss, shine, volume and bounce being very much the orders of the day.
Whether you’re keen on curls or a slave to the straighteners, the right tools for the job are vital, and to make Christmas and New Year glam that little bit easier, we’ve rounded up the best luxury hair-styling tools to see you through every eventuality, for long-lasting looks that scream glamour at every opportunity.
Glamoriser Salon Results Curl Wand
Impeccably glossy curls are something we all tend to covet at this time of year, and rightly so. The Salon Results Curl Wand from Glamoriser is just the ticket, with a unique barrel infused with Black Diamond Oil to offer smooth, defined curls – luxury hair-styling at its best. With various temperature settings, the wand takes just 20 seconds to heat up, providing styles that really last – no mean feat for those of us with the awkward hair-type that refuses to hold. A must for the festive season, and for daily glamour thereafter.
Glamoriser Salon Results hairdryer
The perfect, professional blow dry is a fine art that takes practice to achieve, but with the Glamoriser Salon Results Hairdryer, it is all the easier. Lightweight and easy to handle, it boasts a slim precision concentrator to offer accurate and flawless styling, with 5 heat and speed settings to suit the full range of hair types. But what really sets it apart from the rest is the grille, which – like the rest of the Glamoriser collection – is infused with Black Diamond Oil, and the Mega-ion Generator, which releases conditioning ions to enhance shine. The result? That perfectly polished, frizz-free salon result.
Even better, it comes complete with an additional diffuser to enhance curls, and a thermal blow dry brush for styling.
There are plenty of hairdryers on the market that promises salon-smooth results, but the Glamoriser offering really delivers. If you can’t wait for Santa to arrive, then why not treat yourself?
Glamoriser Salon Results Straightener
Another key player in the Glamoriser collection, the Salon Results Straightener offers sleek, salon straight results in minutes, with even heat technology for consistent heat during styling, fast heat up and Black Diamond Oil-infused plates. The result? Straighter, shinier and smoother with a single pass.
As someone with thick and uncooperative hair, I can confirm that these get the job done, leaving hair glossy, glamorous and ready for anything.
Andrew Barton Argan-infused Volume Styler
A great time-saver for a big night out, the Andrew Barton Shine Volumiser is a spinning brush that will do the hard work for you, drying and styling hair to perfection in one fell swoop. Infused with argan oil to leave hair smoother and shinier than ever before, it’s a great option for those who love the glamorous look but would prefer the extra five minutes in bed!
Andrew Barton Argan-Infused Hot Rollers
For those who can’t decide between a swishy blowdry and red carpet curls, the Andrew Barton Argan-Infused Hot Rollers provide the perfect solution – big, bouncy curls that look as if you have just stepped out of the salon.
The best thing about these rollers is the speed and ease of styling – just pop them in, clip them up, and you are free to do your makeup while they set to work. Leave them in as long as you can, and when you’re ready to leave the house, simply take them out and watch incredible curls tumble down around your shoulders. Spritz with hair spray, and you’re good to go!
Braun Satin-Hair 7 SensoCare Styler
If technology is your thing, then the Braun Satin-Hair 7 SensoCare Styler is the one for you. Built-in sensors in the plate detect the moisture level of each hair strand and automatically adapt temperature from root to tip, offering heat protection while you style. This is a great one of you’re worried about heat damage and split ends – but be prepared to compromise, as although hair is left sleek and straight, results do tend to be less dramatic.
