Shopping for the best hair straightener can be super overwhelming – there are so many options on the market all at different prices! So we're hoping this post proves to be super helpful by sharing our TOP 3 picks for different budgets, and what we love about each. Plus we found them ALL on major sale right now!
When we have our hair done we feel so much better and more put together – can you relate?! These tools have been our favorite and seriously give us salon results at home. If you’re here because you Google-searched “best hair straightener” we're here to give you ALL the info today!
In this post you’ll find our “good,” “better,” “best” rankings, in hopes that it'll help you decide which straightener best fits your needs & budget. (AND, we'll be sharing what product didn’t make the cut for us because a big price tag doesn’t always mean results!)
The GOOD straightener – Hairitage by Mindy
We haven’t owned this straightener as long as others, but Corrine's girls love it! This is the most affordable straightener that works really well. The “Straight to it Flat Iron” by Mindy McKnight is normally $35.94, but it's on sale right now for only $25 (28% off!) which is a price we'll forever be able to get behind for a great hair straightener!!
If you're not looking to spend a lot but you still need a straightener that works well, this is our pick for you!
One of our favorite parts about this straightener is the soft touch housing and heat-resistant sleeve. This seriously feels so nice and fits comfortably in your hand! We're obsessed with the compact cover that makes it the perfect straightener to travel with, too.
This tool has 4 digital settings that heat up to 420 degrees with an automatic shut-off feature after 30 minutes! This flat iron's going to be a lifesaver if you’re constantly leaving the house worrying if you actually shut off your hair tools. We also think it’s a GREAT choice for younger girls or a teen heading off to college – Corrine has loved teaching her daughter how to use this straightener!
The Straight to it Flat Iron is recommended for coily, curly, straight, and wavy textured hair types and has a 2 year warranty and an almost 5-star rating! *Heads up: the power button needs to be held down for just a few seconds before turning on and selecting your heat level.*
The BETTER straightener – BaByliss
This has been one of our favorites for a long time! The BaByliss flat iron became an instant favorite, because (just like the Dyson flat iron) it has curved edges! These edges make curling your hair with a flat iron super fast and insanely easy.
The BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium has 5 LED heat settings going up to 465 degrees and it heats up super quick! This is good for all hair types and makes your locks super shiny at just under $200 but right now this is on sale for only $120!! That's 40% OFF – insane savings!
You know this product is delivering with all the super high ratings! One thing we love about this brand is that you have the flexibility to shop higher or lower features around the price point you want to stay in.
Our BaByliss flat irons have seen a ton of use and wear and tear over the years and they are still going strong! We know this straightener will last you years and you’ll get a ton of use out of it and LOVE the frizz-free and easy to achieve results.
If you're willing to spend a little more on a straightener that'll last you a long time, but you want to spend less than $200 (or $120 rn!), this is my pick for you!
The BEST straightener on the market – Dyson
Saving the best for last! We can’t say enough good things about the Dyson Corrale Straightener – it seriously works so well and is next level amazing for every hair type.
Ok so let’s break down why this straightener normally costs $500… BUT you can get a refurbished one for only $199.99 right now here which is a bananas good deal!! Dyson Corrale is uniquely designed with flexing plates that neatly gather your hair and offers up to 50% LESS hair damage. It's conveniently cordless and charges either on the wall or with a wireless charger (we can get 3-4 uses out of it before charging again!).
While the Corrale heats up super quickly, it also comes with a heat resistant pouch that’s safe to store your tool in while it's still hot. One of our favorite features is that it automatically turns off after 10 minutes of inactivity! Again, no more having to worry when you leave the house, because even if you did accidentally leave it on, you know it'll turn off on its own… SO GENIUS.
Without fail, whenever we use this flat iron people ask us what we did to our hair, what treatment we did, and comment on how amazing it looks! We love this product from the flexibility of taking it off the charging stand, straightening OR curling our hair, and the overall style that it makes our hair hold.
Hair straightener to avoid – what I WOULDN'T recommend!
We have some friends that are loving the L'Oreal Professionnel Steampod Flat Iron & Styler, but it’s not for us! We personally wouldn’t recommend this product after trying it and think it’s a good reminder that just because something’s expensive doesn’t mean it’s going to be amazing.
Happy hair straightener shopping!
We hope this post helped you decide on the best straightener for your life right now! OR find an amazing gift for your mom, sister, daughter, bestie etc this holiday season. We truly can’t recommend Dyson more, but BaByliss and Hairitage are both GREAT options, too. And while you’re hair shopping, make sure to check out our other favorite hair tools here!
