How to choose hair straighteners
-There are many fun colours to choose from, from hot pinks to jet-blacks to metallics. Choose a set that you’ll enjoy using every time.
-The size and shape of the straighteners will reflect how portable they are. Some models are more compact, making them better suited to travel.
-Prices range from very affordable to higher end, so it’s easy to find a model that best suits your budget.
The more expensive options may come with a greater array of accessories such as a heatproof mat, brushes or serums, as well as different settings for temperature.
Cheaper options may come with fewer accessories and features but work just as well for straightforward everyday straightening.
-Some models are better suited to help you with different styles- the narrower the plate, the more flexible with curling and flicks. A wider plate is better suited to straightening bigger sections of hair.
-You can find both socket and cordless options available.
-Straighteners come in a range of different materials. Ceramic or ionic are usually recommended for finer hair, while titanium and tourmaline heat up quicker and to greater temperatures, and are recommended for thicker, harder to straighten hair.
