These hair styling tools have been rated the best of the best by professional stylists and users like you. Whether you are a thrifty shopper or a name-brand-only kind of gal, there is something that fits into everyone's budget. Remember, you deserve the best and so does your hair.

Best Rated Hair Styling Tools

Best Rated Hair Brushes:

BEST ROUND BRUSH: Marilyn Ovali Pro Brush 2-1/2in. ($24)

Marilyn Ovali Pro BrushThe Ovali Pro Brush is like two brushes in one. You can use the flatter side for straight styling and the curved side for lifting and flipping your hair for more volume. Its hourglass shape achieves full contact of the 100% boar brush bristles with the hair and the scalp, giving a much wider brushing area and allowing bristles to reach the hair's root, stretching and pulling them for added volume. The angle in the hourglass shape prevents hair from sliding out of the brush bristles during styling, giving perfect control for better results in less time.

"The average person will have an easier time achieving a professional look with this brush.” - L.A. stylist Frank Galasso, who has used this brush on clients like Calista Flockhart.

BEST PADDLE BRUSH: Mason Pearson Handy Bristle Boar Bristle Hairbrush ($190)

Mason Pearson Pure Bristle Brush Handy SizeMason Pearson has established a unique reputation for hair brushes. The reason for this is partly in the design and partly in the versatility of the brushes. The design consists of unique spired tufts of boar bristle, or nylon, or bristle-and-nylon mixture, set in a pneumatic pad so that every tuft penetrates right through to the scalp. In addition, all of the materials are of the highest quality. The brushes are made in different sizes and materials, at a wide range of prices. There is one for every type of hair. The Genuine Mason Pearson brushes were invented by Mason Pearson in 1885 in London, England. They are known world-wide as "The Distinctive Hairbrush" and have been known to be passed from one generation to another. The pure boar bristle tufts ($190) have the highest reputation for polishing and maintaining the hair. They are able (like your own hair shafts) to hold moisture, which help lift away dirt and dust and distribute natural oils from the scalp. It is the ideal brush for normal, fine, or damaged hair. The nylon tufts are good for penetrating the most difficult hair. The mixture of boar bristle and nylon tufts ($120) is a good combination for thick or long hair.

L.A. stylist Adir Abergel says,“I cannot live without this brush, and I don’t think any other woman should live without it either.” She frequently uses the boar bristle brush on Jennifer Garner.

BEST INEXPENSIVE BRUSH: Spornette Italian Double-Bristled Boar Rounder 3in. ($19)

Spornette-Italian-Double-Bristled-Boar-Rounder-3in-brushThis jumbo-sized boar bristle brush is ideal for setting and styling long hair. It features the finest hand selected and graded boar bristles that are set into a superbly finished wood handle. Its reinforced double concentrated boar bristles (50% more rows) create a rounder brush resulting in amazing quality that produces great hair.

“My Spornette brush glides through the hair and creates voluminous curls.” - L.A. stylist Amber Kerns. She uses this brush on Alison Lohman.

Best Rated Blow-Dryers

BEST BLOW-DRYER: Bespoke Labs T3 Featherweight Hair Dryer ($135)

Bespoke Labs T3 Featherweight Hair DryerThe Featherweight is top-of-the-line professional technology for hair. Made with genuine tourmaline-infused components, its incredibly lightweight body and noticeably superior performance has won over some of the best stylists and celebrities in showbiz. Switch it on and you'll hear and feel the difference - its soothing blast of ionic far infrared heat dries your hair with 60% less drying time, leaving hair feeling more vibrant, thicker, smoother, shinier and easier to style than ever before.

Weighing a mere 13 ounces (less than a pound), this blow-dryer won’t cause arm fatigue no matter how long it takes you to dry your hair.

BEST INEXPENSIVE BLOW-DRYER: Conair Infiniti Tourmaline Ionic Styler ($45)

Conair-Infiniti-Tourmaline-Ionic-StylerThe Conair Infiniti Tourmaline Ionic Styler helps smooth the cuticle layer creating silky, shiny hair. It generates ions that work on hair molecules to help dry them inside and out. These ions smooth the cuticle layer of your hair creating a silky, shiny look. This drying process is gentle and quick; it minimizes heat damage and makes hair less frizzy and more manageable. This dryer offers many of the same buzzed-about technologies found in higher-priced versions - for a fraction of the cost.


Best Rated Flat Irons

BEST FLAT IRON: FHI Runway Ceramic Flat Iron ($400)

FHI-Runway-ceramic-flat-ironDeveloped for the height of professional style, the FHI Heat Runway Edition Flat Iron uses pure ceramic - 6 baked layers of it - and these self-adjusting, beveled plates will never peel or damage hair. True solid ceramic means maximum infrared heating, with tourmaline technology for the most advanced negative ionic action around; these plates heat up 33% faster than FHI's leading Platform series and use a state of the art, patented Integrated Ceramic Heating System developed by a leading manufacturer of ceramic heaters. The benefits of pure ceramic require a little extra care from the user - without a metal baseplate, solid ceramic plates break more easily if used roughly or dropped. So use your pure ceramic iron with care for best results and longest life!

“This tool is designed to be used during fashion shows, which means it works quickly and it holds.” - L.A. stylist Campbell McAuley, who used it to style Claire Danes’s hair.

BEST INEXPENSIVE FLAT IRON: Chi 1" Ceramic Flat Iron ($100)

Red 1 Inch Ceramic Flat IronThe Farouk Chi Ceramic Flat Iron is the #1 selling flat iron. The Chi Iron helps to transform dull frizzy hair into shiny sleek straight hair. It uses the power of positive ions to help repel particles from the air so your hair stays cleaner and healthier. Its 1-inch ceramic plates produce negative ions while sealing the cuticles and locking in your hair color creating a silky salon touch to any look. This iron is so versatile that it can also curl or flip your hair. It only takes 6 to 8 seconds for it to heat up to an incredible 410 Degrees (F) helping you save time. It even has a 10-foot swivel cord to prevent tangling up while using. Also available at

"This is the best flat iron ever! As an Asian female my hair is already straight, but it's not always a fine kind of straight. My hair strands are course and thick, so it doesn't always lie flat. With the Chi, my hair is super soft and looks like I was born with perfectly straight beautiful shiny hair. Every woman should own one." GlamourEdited Contributor
