5 must have styling tools

Pros tell how to get salon results at home with these indispensable styling basics.



 

1 Blow Dryer
Nano- 15x Professional iDry Blow Dryer ($200)

This dryer is “perfect for anyone who is looking for shiny, healthy hair,” says Peter Grimaldis, co-owner of the Oggi/ Adam & Eve Salon and Spa. “It hydrates and seals the cuticle for super-fast drying—three times faster than conventional dryers—and the most conditioning results possible, leaving hair soft and shiny.

A styling nozzle directs the heat exactly where you want it.”

2 Styling Brush
Bozzi Ceramic Styling Brush ($16 to $30)

“The Bozzi styling brush is made with horsehair, so it grips hair without tangling, won’t melt with high heat like plastic bristles,” says Mirela
Nikola, a hair stylist at Le Loft Salon and Spa. “Plus, the ceramic shaft conducts heat from the dryer to your hair to help set the curl faster.” Available in assorted sizes
for curls to loose waves.

3 Sectioning Clips
Scunci Jaw Clips ($2.99 each)

You need to section off your hair while styling with a blow dryer and the bigger the clip the better, says John Carlo at Paulo’s Atelier Hair Salon (725 Bedford Rd, Bedford Hills 914-666-2800). “Look for butterfly jaw clips that are about three inches wide when opened.”

Available at drugstores and Mass retailers

4 Rollers
Velcro Rollers (starting at $4.89 for package of six)

Rollers are back in a big way. Pick up a set of Velcro rollers at any drug store or Target, suggests Carlo. “Blow your hair almost dry, then pop them in and leave them in while you do your makeup, have breakfast. The result is nearly instant, voluptuous curls.”

Available at drugstores and mass retailers

5 Straightener
Bio-Ionic iSmooth Iron ($200)

Like it straight? “The Bio-Ionic iSmooth is different than other flat irons,” Grimaldis says. “It acts as a ‘steam cleaner,’ removing residue and buildup while hydrating and straightening the hair. It won’t leave your hair feeling stiff and lifeless.”
