Hair. How it looks, how it feels, can make (or break) your day. It can be a source of endless compliments...but it's also a never-ending chore to keep it looking healthy, lustrous, orderly, let alone beautiful. It's like the side hustle of personal care.
At the risk of stating the obvious: A job this important needs the right tools. And not just when you're at home in the comfort of your bedroom or standing at your vanity. Maintaining the right look is a skill that needs to travel, so your hair-care appliances have better be well-designed, compact, and fit for taking on the road — nobody at that work conference or high school reunion wants to hear any excuses (and they will be judging you, silently or otherwise).
Luckily, Amazon's putting a brigade of ingenious, dependable, powerful weapons at your disposal, all at discount that are as fresh and appealing as you'll be after you've used them. Be advised, though: These deals are for today only, so chop-chop.
If — when! — you choose one or more of them, know that Amazon Prime members will get free shipping. Not yet a member? Let's fix that: You can sign up for your free 30-day trial here. (And by the way, those without Prime still get free shipping on orders of $25 or more.)
Ready? Let's get to it!
Oh, how we love the brilliance of the hot-air brush. Straightening, styling and drying all in one stroke! The Infinitipro by Conair brings 500 watts of power to the task, with two heat settings and a cool setting. Its bristles are strong (they're nylon) and sensitive (they're ball-tipped), just the combo you want when tending to your precious, if disobedient, locks. The result? No frizz, lots of fullness.
'Works great!" gushed one five-star reviewer. "Heats up fast, the display is clear and visible. The best part? The rounded edges, which are PERFECT while styling to give me the waves and curls I love."

Sometimes, where your hair is concerned, you just need to get a grip on things, ASAP and with extreme prejudice.

The secret to getting down close and personal with your scalp and taming your tresses right where the trouble begins. The Nano's versatile, too, featuring 50(!) heat settings, so you can tailor the fix to match the challenges abounding on your noggin. And now you can score one of these for over 30 percent off! We bet your hair's feeling more relaxed already.
One five-star reviewer said: "I like the adjustable heat settings [see? we told you they were great!] and the extra long cord that rotates as I style my hair. The size is great for reaching shorter hairs."
It's a Revlon hair-care product — do we really need to say anything more about its quality and dependability? Oh, alright: Look, this baby boasts 1875 watts of styling power (we're not electrical engineers, but we know that's a lot of watts) that uses infrared heat technology. All that power, ironically, brings a lot of softness, control and shine to your hair-care game.(Guess you have to be cruel to be kind sometimes.) With two heat and speed settings, concentrator and diffuser attachments and, just as a nice parting gift, three hair sectioning clips included, this is a product that says you're not messing around. Amazingly, Amazon's got this for the low, low price of $17..but just for today.
"It's a struggle to find a good blow dryer for thick, curly, long hair," related one of 18,269 five-star reviewers. "Either it fries my hair or it takes forever to straighten because of the lack of power. This blow dryer didn't disappoint! I am beyond impressed."

"Yes," you say, "but sometimes I don't want my hair straightened; I want it curly as all get-out!" Okay, we hear you...and so have the folks at the ironically named Bed Head. They're here to help with the Curlypops Clamp-Free Curling Wand. And when they say "curlypop," they mean it — big, loose, tously, boing-y curls are yours for the (easy) styling. Heat settings of up to 400 degrees will make it so. They're so confident of its power that this deal includes a heat-protective glove so that you don't scorch your digits while styling your 'do. We'd call this a "magic wand" if that weren't such a trite, hacky flourish. I mean, c'mon, we're above that sort of thing.
"I just turned 50...and currently have the longest hair I've ever had in my life," reported one very happy customer. "I have always love the look of the 'beach' waves and wanted it for awhile but put it off thinking it would be too much trouble.... Well? I got it with this wand... I am VERY happy with the results."

After a year and a half that kept most of us more house-bound than we would have liked, we're finally getting out and hitting the road. Well, jumping on a plane won't be the only flyaway you'll have to be concerned about. Enter this helper away from home from Drybar. As its name suggests, it's both a paddle brush and a straightening iron; there's nothing more welcome when packing our bags than a dual-function products. Also helpful: it's nice and compact, while not skimping on the power — it heats up to 450 degrees. And how cute is that banana yellow? It's adorable, as is the $18 discount you'll enjoy, but just for today.
"Fantastic for straightening out kinks in second and third day hair, heats up quickly and leaves my hair silky!" raved one five-star fan. "And perfect size for travel! I’ve ditched my straightener in favor of this."

"I have FINALLY found a straightener that actually makes my hair so nice!" said this gleeful girl. "Geez, this thing works so well. I see steam coming off my hair when i use this. Only have to use a few passes to achieve straight hair." She concluded, "My white girl hair finally has some weight and lays nicely after using this straightener."
