Best Hair Tools

Connecticut

I’m so excited to share my tried and true hair tools with you. These are my absolute holy grail hair products that I can’t live without!!! I rarely wear my hair straight and these tools are how I get a subtle beach-y wave in my long locks.

Best Hair Tools

T3 Curling Iron

I upgraded to this curling wand a few years ago, and have never looked back. It is worth every penny! It heats up in under 1 minute – no joke, and I only have to wrap my hair around it for 10 seconds to get a long lasting curl. I don’t even use hairspray, and the curls last all day, and look really pretty and relaxed the next day too.

With my previous curling iron – this was never the case and my curls would fall out throughout the day. Nordstrom carries several different sizes of the barrels. I have the clip-less 1″ barrel that attaches to this base. What’s great about this base is, you can use it with tons of different barrel sizes to suit your needs. If you have longer hair you could use a 1.25″ barrel, or if you prefer a clip barrel you can get any of these!

T3 Hairdryer

I rarely dry my hair, but when I do it’s with this T3 hairdryer. (It just sold out, but may restock soon – so be sure to check back! This is the auto sensor version.) It’s insanely lightweight, dries my hair quickly, and is compact + sleek. It’s the only dryer my hairstylist uses as well! If you’re willing to splurge a bit more, and have extremely thick hair, then I do recommend this Dyson hairdryer which is pricier, but really impressive in terms of drying time. Thomas actually uses this on his hair so it’s in his bathroom lol!

Oribe Gold Lust Dry Shampoo

This is one of the best smelling scents EVER. It’s intoxicating! If I ever need a little extra boost in my hair I spray this perfumed dry shampoo. It makes it smell heavenly, and gives me that volume and texture I love.

Oribe Hair Oil

Never underestimate a hair oil! It is key for nourishing dry, split ends. This one has the same amazing scent as the dry shampoo and comes in this beautiful bottle. Just drop a dime size into your palm and run through your hair with a focus on the ends. This really helps keep my hair looking healthy between cuts.

Oribe Heat Protectant Spray

Heat protectant spray is a must. You have to protect your hair against heat every time you blow dry and curl it. Especially with the T3 iron since it gets hot! This spray comes out like a fine mist and I spritz it all over before I’m about to curl my hair, then I brush it through. The instructions say to spray on damp hair, but I typically just spray it on dry hair.

Mason Pearson Hair Brush

I’ve had this hair brush for 10 years! Yes 10 years. It lasts forever, and is what I credit to making my hair stay thick, healthy and full. The bristles are so gentle and I feel like it makes my hair extra shiny. It’s expensive for a hair brush, but when you think about how long it lasts and see the effects firsthand, you’ll understand why.

Nordstrom Beauty

You can get all of my favorite hair tools at Nordstrom here! They have everything your hair needs from curling irons, to blow dryers, scalp treatments (this one is great for volume at the roots), shampoo and more. They also just restocked the Dyson Airwrap, which I’ve been dying to get my hands on – have you tried it yet?

Cozy Robes

PS If you don’t already own a cozy robe, I love this one, this one and this one! Any of them would make the perfect Christmas gift.

    I recently started using the Oribe brand products and the smell is intoxicating. I was hesitant at first if it was worth the money, but I have gotten so many compliments on how soft my hair is. Love these recommendations !

    Thanks for the helpful tip on the T3 curling iron! My hair never holds curls – I just end up braiding it if I want some waves – so will give this one a try!!! I’ve seen great reviews!

    I’ve always struggled with confidence because my hair is thin and doesn’t grow more than a little bit past my shoulders. The stress I get on a daily basis because of my hair makes it hard to be happy. My drug store blow dryer which I seldom use because it’s likely not great for my hair is on its last leg. I would give almost anything to have hair like you!
