Do you struggle with frizzy hair that just won’t straighten, or limp locks that refuse to curl? If you’re female, at one point in your life you’ve had an unmanageable mane (and if you haven’t, you’re a unicorn). However, thanks to these six haute hair tools, you can kick your follicle problems to the curb. Like Ruth Gordon says in the film Harold and Maude, “Here today, gone tomorrow.” We’re just going to assume that she was talking about bad hair.
The T3 Whirl Trio is the big daddy of curling wands, given that it gives you options (and what woman doesn’t like options)? Three easily interchangeable barrels put countless looks at your fingertips. With these wands, you can create playful, beachy waves, perfectly defined spirals or big, full-bodied waves. The tools are powered by T3’s signature Tourmaline + digital SinglePass Technology with five heat settings,to create quick, perfect styles on all hair types. Not going to lie, we also like that they’re aesthetically pleasing: these white and rose gold wands are so haute.
Remington’s T|Studio PROtect Flat Iron is truly an innovation. While you’re straightening—which can be completely damaging to your locks—a fine mist will shoot out to protect it. This breakthrough product combines 1” Ultra Ceramic plates with the revolutionary Vapor Infusion Technology to provide 90% more frizz control and 68% more protection from breakage compared to standard Remington straighteners. The PROtect uses water and an included macadamia conditioning treatment to supply cool micro vapor that absorbs into hair, protecting it from damage while you style. Your hair will be shiny, smooth and safe.
T3’s Voluminous Hot Rollers are the holy grail of hot rollers. They’re easy to use thanks to clips that don’t leave dents in your hair and the brand’s signature T3 Tourmaline technology, which emits maximum ionic, infrared heat. This technology safely penetrates the hair shaft, effectively styling the hair from the inside out while sealing the hair cuticle against frizz. The velvet grip of the roller surface imparts natural shine to your locks during the process. They’re not only easy to use, but quick to work as well—it takes just three minutes for these rollers to get hot, hot, hot.
The Theorie Saga2 flatiron is inspired by stylists, which is one reason you’ll know it’s a great addition to your haircare arsenal. Another is that this adaptable tool is meticulously constructed with solid titanium floating plates that heat to 450°F, allowing you to quickly create more intricate styles in half the time. Even better, it’s safe for your mane. The iron features negative ion technology and natural Far infrared properties that eliminate static and frizz and put a stop to heat damage. The effect is shiny, lasting, covetable hairstyles in less time and with more control. Oh, and it also comes in a seriously nifty brown leather case. Sold!
We love the InStyler Max because a) it’s pretty (pink and purple tools are so our jam), b) it’s versatile to create a blown out look, straight hair or loose waves and c) it’s super easy to use. The InStyler Max uses less heat than traditional hot tools and delivers red-carpet worthy results thanks to two-way rotation technology, which allows you to easily control the direction the barrel rotates without ever having to switch hands or change position. The MAX improves upon the original InStyler (which we were always a fan of) with four Heat Settings from 285°F up to 425°F, an upgraded ceramic tourmaline rotating barrel and floating plate, 20% increase in barrel RPM speed, ionic brush bristles, a thermal guard training aid and a removable cool tip. Hot tip: the 1¼” barrel size creates incredible volume, loose curls and waves. The smaller 3/4 inches barrel size is perfect for shorter hair and bags, as well as creating tight curls and styling closer to roots.

When we heard that stylist to the stars Harry Josh was creating his own haircare line, we jumped for joy. After all, this is the guy responsible for creating Gisele Bundchen and Rose Byrne‘s signature styles. We’re happy to report that Harry’s products are as amazing as his clients. In particular, we’re huge fans of the Pro Tools 2000 Pro Dryer, an incredibly lightweight yet incomparably powerful dryer that minimizes frizz while significantly reducing drying time. ION functionality promotes intense softness and shine while ensuring a silky-smooth finish free of static. At the same time, a specialized dual filtration system reduces energy consumption by 70 percent. Trust us, this is one small but mighty hair dryer—that cut our drying time but more than 20 minutes.
