Professional hairstyling and grooming tools have advanced so much over the last 25 years, we can hardly keep up! here are four tools that continue to make their mark in hair history.
Wahl Professional Peanut
Small enough to fit in the palm of your hand, the Wahl Peanut lives up to its name with a peanut-shaped design that works as both a hair and beard clipper and trimmer. Featuring a powerful rotary motor, the Peanut is lightweight (weighing only four ounces!) and easy to clean with a detachable blade.
Dyson Supersonic Pro
Dubbed the Tesla of hair dryers, Dyson has turned the design and function of a traditional dryer on its head. With the powerful motor in its handle, the Supersonic Professional has been ergonomically designed with hairstylists in mind—keeping it lightweight while delivering fast- drying results. It also protects hair from extreme heat damage (thanks to its intelligent heat control) and is quieter than most professional dryers.
Hot Tools Curlbar
While curling wands have been an emerging trend since the late 2000s, Hot Tools is “raising the bar.” Designed to reduce strain on the wrists, elbows and shoulders (bye- bye carpal tunnel!) the Hot Tools Curlbar features an ergonomically designed shape to create curls or waves in a flash.
CHI Original Flat Iron
This flat iron was so “hot” in the early 2000s that there were even counterfeit models being produced! The launch of the CHI transformed hairstyling and took hair tools to
the next level—and led the way for higher-priced professional hair tools to become the norm for both stylists and clients.
