If your client has damaged hair or if they need that extra shine and therapy, this tool is a must.
Need weight removal? Look no further than the InvisiBlend Shears. No lines, no holes, no drag, no hand or wrist pain. The 23 convex teeth slice each hair from short to long, removing bulk and creating natural movement.

It makes blow-drying so much easier on all hair types from curly hair to super straight hair. It’s perfect for your clients to use at home and great to use in your salon. It cuts down your drying time, and also makes it easier to get those perfect wispy ends and movement.
Love the long barrel iron for the most obvious reason—the extra-long barrel makes it so easy for me to create beautiful waves and curls with all of the dramatic, long hair I do. I also love that it has a digital temperature control, and the soft tip at the end which makes it easy for me to do curl sets.
I love these because they’re lightweight, very efficient and cut super close.

If you’re looking for the ultimate beach babe waves to make your moneypieces pop, use the Hot Tools 1¼” Curling Iron. I love the gold black marcel from Hot Tools because it distributes heat evenly throughout the barrel.
I love all Sam Villa shears and dry cutting is so much easier with the 7-inch shears. The sharpness is so long-lasting. There are so many options of shears depending on what kind of look you’re trying to create to get you to the perfect goal.

I’m blown away by the shine from this product. It’s super gentle and uses germanium plates for precise temperature control. It even sings you a song when it turns on and off!
