Yogi Wand

Sinead Van Kampen

Whether you're floaty, frizzy or flat, getting tresses tamed can be a tiring affair without the right tools for the job. This week, in a desperate bid to curb the amount of days in our week beginning with the title 'bad hair', Independent Woman twirled, curled and straightened our way through the latest in stylers.

Babyliss Big Hair

Flat hair in need of fun will love Big Hair by Babyliss. Using a rotating bristled barrel which whirls for a perfect curl, the work is done by the brush on the barrel and not by the user. Simply run through damp hair and then dry and curl as you go. Designed to inject volume as the hair is dried, use it once and it resembles an instrument of torture, use it twice and you'll never use anything else. Instant va va voom.

Available from Boots, priced at €59.99

Yogi Wand

Lifeless, finicky or just plain flat? The Yogi wand should return your hair's mojo. Simply twist hair in sections and let the wand do the work. The end result is sexy, loose, volumised curls which won't disappear until well after dark. As the Yogi Wand also comes with it's very own heat-proof glove, you'll be surprised at how quickly those burns and blisters become a distant memory.

Available from Peter Mark, priced at €69.00

K-Pak Reconstrx Vapour Iron

Ladies looking to breathe life into limp locks will be more than impressed by the K-Pak Reconstrx Vapor Iron. Working to protect and condition hair, K-Pak stylers come locked and ready to load with a liquid fuel which infuses hair with keratin proteins, amino acids and botanical oils. For brittle hair styled on a regular basis, the extra protection means dry hair is given a lot more moisture and breakages are reduced by as much as 40% - genius !

Priced at €159.95, Available from

GHD Max Styler

Still the benchmark by which other irons are judged, the GHD Max styler is something of a godsend to ladies blessed with thicker hair. Designed to cover more surface area than the traditional model the large plates make light work of calming curls, curbing kinks and smoothing frizz. Troublesome tresses become sleek, smooth and super straight. This recently re-launched version also comes complete with new gold plates for a perfectly professional finish.
