I have recently realized that many of my friends spend an arm and a leg on curlers, straightener and blow dryers. Meanwhile, I’m getting many a compliment using my $10 Conair curler. Read on to discover which cheap hair tools measure up to salon quality.
I literally bought this in grade 6 yet it is better than any curler I’ve ever tried. It has definitely stood the test of time (11 years, but who’s counting? …was 6th grade really that long ago?)
I know everyone is all about the wand curlers, but having a clamp really cuts down on the whole burning-your-hand element. (Always a plus.)
I like to put in a dime-sized amount of low-hold gel in my hair from the ear down before curling. (Curls hold better when the hair has some product in it.) Once the curls have cooled, comb them out your fingers for that pin-up look. Mist with hair spray and you’re done!
I had the original CHI but shorted it out on a vacation to Chile, so I needed something afforable – fast. I noticed this pink beaut at Target (run over before they close!) for only $99 which was amazing considering I paid $300 for my original CHI. It works just as well as the original, but for much less moula!
This guy boasts 1875 watts of power – higher the wattage, the more powerful it is, the faster your hair will dry. And let’s be honest, who wants to spend an extra second with your arms aching getting those tresses dry? I like this because it gets the job done fast and since it’s ionic, gives your hair that blowout silkiness and shine.

Happy hair styling 🙂
