When shopping for a new blow dryer or flat iron, you may assume that the more expensive gadgets work better. But that's not always true, according to the best celebrity hairstylists in the game. The editors at ModaMob asked three professionals to reveal the budget-friendly hair tools they swear by, and all the products cost under $100.
Nicole Blais, who styles Hailey Baldwin and Emma Roberts, recommends the Turbo Power TwinTurbo 2800 Coldmatic Hair Dryer ($86) and Elchim Classic 2001 Dryer ($80) for at-home use because "they have better airflow than regular drugstore brands." Cynthia Alvarez, the mane woman behind Keke Palmer's fabulous looks, trusts Hot Tools NanoCeramic Curling Iron ($55) to heat up "quickly and evenly" for "smooth, long-lasting waves and curls." Meanwhile, celeb stylist Paul Norton keeps the Hot Tools 1130 Marcel Curling Iron ($34) within reach to achieve curly, straight or wavy styles.
Watch the video above to find out more about the affordable hair tools these pros keep in their styling kits. Plus, learn which mini hair brush Blais believes is an "unsung hero," and the rattail comb Norton uses to tame flyaways.
