A couple of weeks ago I posted about my gorgeous blowout at the Benefit Boutique. I’d love to be able to recreate the look at home, but the truth is that I am just not very good at styling my own hair.
Lord knows I’ve tried over the years! I invested in a barrel brush, but unfortunately what looks very easy when my hairdresser does it only results in tangles at home. I just don’t seem to have the coordination required to control both the brush and the hairdryer at the same time. I tend to use straighteners which gives me a nice glossy finish but takes away any volume.
I’ve been looking at various heated roller sets for a while, but was slightly put off by the fact that a) I’d have to put them in myself (that coordination thing again!) and b) most starting price sets only offer 12 rollers and only 4 of these tend to be large.
So how does it propose to do this? Well it’s basically a 700w hair dryer but with a bristle brush in place of a nozzle. As you run the brush through your hair the air circulates to dry it and at the same time you can also rotate the brush either clockwise or anticlockwise electronically via button controls on the wand.
I have been experimenting with it for the past two weeks and here’s what I think so far:
On the whole, I’m pleased with my purchase and would recommend it if you have medium to long hair and struggle styling your hair on your own. You’ll feel like a pro… once you get the hang of it!
I bought the styler from Argos for £44.99, here.
N.B. I have no affiliation to Babyliss and bought this styler as a result of pining for bigger hair! All opinions are honest and my own.
