A good hair straightener is one of those styling tools that can turn a “meh” hair day into a great one. Even second-day hair (or third...or fourth?) can get an instant refresh with a few passes of a flat iron and some dry shampoo.
The best flat iron is speedy, sleek-looking and won’t totally destroy your hair. Each of the following on this list -- choose from ceramic, tourmaline and ionic technology -- is a favorite among stylish celebs and pro stylists (as well as us mere mortals). And each will deliver serious shine and style to your frizzy or curly hair.
Just a few swipes with one of these hair tools will have everyone asking what salon you just emerged from. It’s up to you whether or not to tell them the truth.
So bypass the keratin treatment, turn up the heat and shop the best flat irons on the market, below. (And not to nag, but don't forget the heat protectant.)
