Olivia Garden Brush Cleaner
A hair comb can often be less than effective when it comes to getting hairs out of brush bristles. Enter this tool. Use the large side for round brushes and the smaller end for paddle brushes. The sturdy wire teeth are perfect for hard-to-clean boar bristles.
To buy: $11, ulta.com.
ISO Beauty Curling Iron Set
Stop wasting space and money on multiple curling irons. This one tool comes with a trio of different-size barrels: ¾ inch, 1 inch, and 1¼ inches. Since the iron needs only 10 seconds to heat up, switching sizes mid-styling is easy and convenient.
To buy: $53, sears.com.
Hot Tools Flat Iron Caddy
Never accidentally leave your straightener on again after you’ve finished with it. Make it a habit to clip it into this flame- and heat-resistant holder, which fits almost any iron: It will automatically shut off the tool. To protect your countertop from a hot iron in use, just slide it halfway in the holder.
