Hot Tools

Star Struck Flat Iron

Far-infrared heat in this star-spangled iron is gentler for hair and seals in the cuticle to cut back on frizz. The iron senses heat loss and begins restoring it immediately to keep the iron hot, and variable heat settings allow you to adjust up to 430°F.


Digital Titanium Glide Styler

This mod, flowery styler uses advanced technology to create straight hair, curls or waves. It’s developed with energy-efficient MCH ceramic heaters with an adjustable temperature up to 450°F, and the 1-inch titanium floating plates have instant heat recovery.

Paul Mitchell
