You Only Need 3
When you're overwhelmed by anything in life, the first step is to simplify. According to Devin Toth, a hairstylist at Salon SCK in New York City, the three primary tools you need in your collection are a curling iron, a blowdryer, and a flat iron.
Choosing the perfect blowdryer depends on three key factors. First, it should be relatively lightweight. Heavy or bulky blowdryers are a pain to use and occupy valuable space in your carry-on.
Curls, curls, curls. Depending on the size of the barrel and the way you use it, a curling iron can provide tons of body. You can opt for one with a clamp, which is the classic version, or a clampless model, otherwise known as a wand.
The Flat Iron
Finally, let's talk flat irons. All the rules that apply to curling irons are also true of these. Choose a product that heats evenly and quickly, and is coated in tourmaline or ceramic for better hair protection and a sleeker finish.
