    Walmart, Steph / Walmart

    Promising review: "So easy to use! What I've always wanted my hair to look like! My hair is very thick, and it only takes about 15-20 minutes to curl, depending on how tight I want my curls." β€”Steph

    Price: $24.86

    4. A ceramic straightening brush that'll have you saying good-bye to your previous straightening method. This helpful brush and straightener in one will ensure each strand is going to be as sleek as you need it.


    Promising review: "I am so happy with my brush! I have very thick hair and everything I normally do with it takes so much time! With two kids and a dog, the time i have for my hair is very limited. The brush is the perfect tool for my everyday life as it takes only 10 minutes to get a perfect straight hair look!" β€”AA

    Price: $44.99

    5. A Kiss Salon hood hair dryer so hands-free blowdrying can be in your foreseeable future. It's also a wonderful option if you use rollers, color pressing, or are simply looking to give your arm a break from holding your blowdryer for 20+ minutes.


    Promising review: "This is the best hair dryer ever!!! Plenty large enough for extra large rollers. It has tons of air holes in the bonnet β€” more powerful than the hood dryer I had when I was a teen (and roomier). This is the BEST hair dryer I've ever had. The only minus is that it is def. Noisy, but that's a small drawback for such a great product. You will not regret this purchase." β€”fufupuppy

    Price: $39.94

    6. A keratin complex flat iron for getting sleeker looking hair without the damage. This iron smoothes hair cuticles and also helps prevent moisture loss so your hair isn't superrrrr dried out.


    Promising review: "I promise you this is the best iron you will ever buy. I've had the Stealth IV iron from Keratin Complex for four years and I can honestly say I have never used a better iron. It is a professional iron and definitely gives a shiny and smooth finish to your hair. I am left without frizz and with softness after using this iron and I have dry, frizzy, curly hair. The stealth V iron works even better and I'm so happy I bought it again. Definitely recommend to everyone, so happy my hair stylist recommended this iron to me a while back." β€”Vanessa

    Price: $89.91

    7. Conair hot rollers if you want to create a 50's-inspired pin curl look. Hot rollers are a great alternative to curling irons if you want to be able to multi-task while they set!


    Promising review: "I bought these hot rollers about six months ago and I absolutely love they curl my hair nicely, and they don't damage my hair. I absolutely love them and I would highly recommend." β€”SANDYB

    Price: $34.87

    8. A hair crimper for texturizing any and every hairstyle. Crimp hair a la Lizzie McGuire style (aka all over) or underneath the top layers of hair for ~EXTRA~ volume.


    Promising review: "I LOVE this crimper. I use it on my roots and it gives my hair tons of volume that lasts till the next shampoo. I separate my hair into sections as if i am going to curl or flat iron it. Then separate a very small portion of that and crimp at the root. Then curl or flat iron the entire piece. I only crimp underneath so it doesn't show when finished. But it also adds a funky fun texture if you pull your hair up in a messy up do. I use it now every time I shampoo. You won't go wrong with this!" β€”Pattykre


    9. A tourmaline hair waver to sculpt effortless beachy waves that won't require you to fly to the nearest tropical getaway to achieve them. For a softer look, brush out hair *after* styling.


    Promising review: "I have thin, straight hair. Even with thickening products, it falls flat easily. I love to curl my hair because it gives it some volume and stays most of the day, but I'm a mom and that takes time I do not have. But with this waver I get cute waves in 10-15 minutes, and it stays all day! This is my new favorite thing ever, and at such a great price too! I highly recommend this. (I have included a photo)" β€”Misskryp

    Price: $24.86

    Price: $55 (originally $79.99)

    11. A curling wand in case you're anything like me and normal curling irons will JUST NOT curl your hair. Whoever invented curling wands deserves a Nobel Peace Prize.


    Also the marble handle!? *Chef's kiss*

    Price: $49.27

    12. An FHI heat blowdryer with a nine-foot professional chord so you can have more movability while you style your hair. Let's be honest β€” no one likes a short chord, period.

    Promising review: "Love this flat iron - wore out my other one like this and got another a cheaper brand but didn't like as much as this one. Worth the money. Works fast and the on off button is inside where you don't accidentally turn off which is really nice. Works fast too!" β€”healthinsnut

    Price: $51.72

    15. A diffusing hair dryer for those with curly hair and are interested in retaining bouncy texture. No one wants to lose the shape of their curls when drying and this diffuser will make sure you don't.

    16. A mid-size titanium hair dryer that has a super powerful 2000 watt motor with three speed and three heat settings for tailoring your ultimate blow dry. It ~also~ has a cool shot button for locking in hair styles for all-day wear!


    Promising review: "I've used this dryer for only a short while now but can tell you that it's fantastic in every way! My stylist suggested this brand and if this is the price point you're looking for, then don't hesitate to buy. It's lightweight yet sturdy and makes my hair A LOT smoother than the others I've tried. Believe the positive reviews as the motor seems to be superior....dries super quick with very little force. With six heat/speed settings and a four-year warranty, you can't go wrong. You don't even have to register the dryer online...just be sure to keep the receipt and the warranty will be honored, though I doubt you'll ever need to use it. Simply said, this is a wonderful product!!!!" β€”JKhoe

    Price: $68.99

    17. A classic curling iron if you're used to styling your waves while using the attached clamp ~OR~ you can use it like a wand by forgoing the clamp and wrapping hair around the barrel! Talk about multi-functional!


    Promising review: "This is easily the best curling iron I have ever had. I had one for three years and it just broke so bought a different model to replace it and it was horrible so I searched high and low to find this one and it is exactly like my original one. Love it! Highly recommend!" β€”Pickycurler

    Price: $29.99 ($44.95 value)

    18. A BaBylissPRO travel hairdryer that's easily packable and will deliver the power of your normal blowdryer with half the size. This dryer has duo voltage so no matter where you travel, your hairdryer can go too!

    Price: $27

    19. A Revlon silicone heated brush so getting volume at the root is effortless. After blowdrying, use this brush to style the voluminous blowout of your β˜† dreams β˜†.


    Promising review: "Best product ever for my hair. I have naturally curly hair. I just let it dry on its own. Then, I use this to make smooth, shiny waves. No more burning my fingers or scalp with the curling iron. The silicone bristles don't tangle my hair. They allow me to spin the bush. I also have very thick hair and it does the trick in 10 minutes or less. Please Revlon - do not ever discontinue this product. If you do β€” I will buy your surplus!" β€”BHINNJ

    Price: $20.39

    20. A collapsible hard hat hair dryer β€” perfect for drying very wet hair. This particular dryer is gentler on the hair with its lower heat settings and is collapsible so you can take it and use it anywhere in your home!


    Promising review: "My head fits under even when I'm wearing 3'' rollers. It doesn't burn your ear or you neck; It has two settings: low and high and you can adjust the height. When you folded down it doesn't take up much space. The description says 1875w but I think is less and it says 110v but it's 125v AC. You have to keep your head down in order to dry the last rollers in the back. Comparing the hair dryers that I have had in the past, this is the one that I like the most. I would definitely recommend it." β€”AnaBx

    Price: $42.99

    Vibrastrait heats up in eight seconds and minimizes any pulling or tugging that could happen with typical straighteners.

    Price: $72.99

    23. A rotating CHI hair curler for creating incredible curls with the easy touch of a button. Hair is fed through the curl chamber once the button is pressed so you can get your arm a rest from twisting it around your iron barrel.


    Promising review: "This is such an amazing product! I've never been able to curl my own hair until now! It's definitely worth the money." β€”awesome

    Price: $78.90 ($139.99 value)

    24. A ceramic press comb in case you have finer hair, and a straightener or straightening brush isn't for you. A comb is a great alternative for more detailed looks when working with smaller sections or hair thicknesses! Let's style those bangs!


    Promising review: "I have relaxed, color-treated hair and after too many chemicals, my hair broke off really bad in a few places. I had bald spots basically. When my hair started to grow back in those spots, my natural hair texture is 4c, so I had a hard time trying to deal with the natural hair growing back and the relaxed hair I already had. This hot comb saved the day. Straightened my hair, doesn't take long to heat up." β€”Sw33tSparkl3

    Price: $18.99

    25. An Instyler blowout iron that simultaneously rotates and brushes, all while heating the hair into beautiful blown out waves. No more trying to brush and blow dry at the same time β€” this isn't as tiring for your arm and will look like you've perfected the skilled of an actual blowout.

    Price: $64.99

    26. A titanium ultra thin flat iron so you can get rid of your old clunky model and opt for something sleeker and lighter to hold! I personally love this model, because it's easier to maneuver with my shorter hairstyle and since it's thinner, there's less tugging on my hair.


    Promising review: "This is the best straightener I have EVER bought! It straightens my hair so easily and it is very lightweight. I would definitely recommend the Babyliss to anyone looking for a straightener!" β€”Ally

    Price: $89+ (available in three different widths)

    27. A Mason Pearson hair brush, because hair upkeep is priceless and you deserve to have a bougie brush to maintain it. The unique rubber cushion supplies a pain-free brush that'll be kind to your hair ~and~ your scalp.

    Your hair deserves it, believe me.


    28. A Foxybae 3-in-1 curling wand in case you'd rather be able to switch out the barrels as desired for various sized curls! These are a great investment if you'd like an array of curl sizes, or want to have the option of still being able to easily wave your hair after a significant haircut.


    Promising review: "Super impressed with the FoxyBae line. Ive been using the same wand forever, but didn't realize how much more texture/looks you can get with different barrel wands. Whether I want beachy waves or tighter curls (even for a messy bun or braids), these are perfect! Very easy to change in and out - and great to throw in a suitcase for multiple styles on vacation." β€”Mar
