Q. What is the best way to store multiple curling irons, hair dryers, and flat irons?

A. Getting the right look can take several tools, and you don’t want to waste 20 minutes each morning untangling a mess of cords. Instead, it’s best to keep your curling irons and blow-dryers easily accessible. Try the Hair Dryer Holder Hair Care Center ($11,, a wire organizer that has space for a hair dryer, a curling iron, and either heat-styling products or a flat iron. If you have several hair tools, buy two of these organizers. And always keep the cords rolled up, recommends Deb Isler, owner of In Its Place Organizing in Marshalls Creek, Pennsylvania. This will eliminate a lot of the hassle.
