FROM wonderful MP3 hair straighteners to frisky hair dryers that know when to shut up and power paddle brushes with advanced – nearly space-age engineering technology – computers and smart phones are not the only electronic goodies that are evolving to meet our high standards of comfort.
If like us, you're baffled by the huge array of highly technical beauty tools, here are the very best beauty buys that managed to surprise and amaze us at London Confidential.
The Brush is infused with nano-silver, which is more effective in providing an incredible shine and eliminating bacteria than other silver solutions, while the stone, re-enforced heat-resistant bristles give your hair a greater longevity. Drying time is reduced by the incorporation of ionic technology as well as by the ceramic body of the Brush, which produces smoother, faster drying hair. Plus, say goodbye to loose flyaways with the anti-static bristles.
To the naked eye, the Sensor Dryer by Nicky Clarke looks like, well... a hair dryer. However, hidden below the two speed and three heat settings you’ll find a sensor that leads to a touch sensitive system, meaning that once you put the dryer down, it will shut off automatically. It then also instantly turns back on when you pick it up again, marking an end to that horrific, highly annoying blow dryer noise or to the misery of turning the dryer on and off, whichever you disliked more.
The Sensor Dryer is lightweight and provides 2000W with its AC motor, which will give you a salon quality blow dry every time. The ionic technology, incorporated deep inside the dryer, helps prevent frizz and keeps your hair looking in top condition. You’ll have a full control of your look, while being spared the headaches of noise or annoyance.
Music To Our Ears
It’s eight in the morning and you’re straightening your hair half asleep, or it’s eight at night and you’re getting ready for a big night out, whatever the time, all you can hear is that boring sizzling sound of your hair, which certainly doesn’t get you excited about the day or night ahead. Oh, and where do you leave that burning hot iron after you’ve finished?
These are annoyances and questions left the past with the Corioliss SXE Dynamic Microphone hair straightener, which features two innovations. Firstly, it comes with a holder. So simple... but oh so handy. On top of that though, the holder doubles as an MP3 speaker giving you the chance to shout, howl or shriek along with your favourite tunes.
Besides being way cooler than your regular straightener, this beauty tool features all you’d expect from the Corioliss series. The temperature can be variably controlled between 60°C–210°C and that in combination with the ceramic plates will leave your hair smooth, silky and sleek.
The cheeky creators at Corioliss are known for their will to brighten up the hair industry’s traditional conventions when it comes to design, so they made the holder/MP3 speaker look like a vintage 1950s microphone. The musical straightener is available in black or pink, and works with all types of MP3 players. This is a no-brainer.
