41 Helpful Hair Tools

From Oscillating Hair Straighteners to On-Demand Hairstyle Apps

— September 4, 2015 — Fashion
These helpful hair tools are designed to help consumers streamline their morning routine. For many consumers, styling their hair is the most time-consuming part of getting ready for the day. From oscillating hair straighteners to on-demand hairstyle apps, these helpful hair tools are designed to simply complex beauty routines.

For consumers with long hair, drying their locks is a time-consuming task. While traditional blow dryers can help one avoid wet hair, these devices can be bulky and cumbersome. To make blow drying a simpler task, companies have developed products such as hands-free hairdryers and cylindrical hair stylers that fit nearly under the bathroom sink.

While many tame their locks at home, others prefer to visit a professional stylist. With the rising popularity of dry bars and blow-out specific salons, a trip to the hairdresser is becoming a more routine affair. To make it easier for consumers to coordinate their salon appointments, there are a number of apps dedicated to haircare needs. For example, there are beauty appointment apps that allow one to book blowouts with ease and on-demand hairstyle apps that deliver a hairdresser directly to an individual's home.
