Did you know there’s a vending machine that vends a flat iron? Well there is! Originally introduced in 2005 and distributed in more than 16 countries worldwide, The Beautiful Styler has been placed in trendy venues such as nightclubs, health and fitness centers, tanning salons, shopping malls, colleges, office buildings, airports and reception halls.

Now, Beautiful Styler has been modified to operate in the U.S! The styler integrates the variable controlled timer system that activates the GHD ceramic hot irons when cash is inserted into the dollar bill acceptor. It was even awarded “The International Vending Product Of The Year” by the vending industry.
