From a blow-drying brush to a cordless flat iron, these innovative hot tools make styling your hair easier and faster than ever.


Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler


Gone are the days of juggling a round brush and a hair dryer in order to master a blow-out at home. This gadget combines both: Simply glide the brush slowly through small sections of hair. The paddle brush is great for all hair types—especially tangle-prone—and glides through strands with ease while the hot (or cold) air comes out between the bristles to leave you with smooth, dry hair.
