Ok so curls are back folks. Big, bouncy, perm-a-likes really are catwalk approved for 2021. And if you want to know how to achieve them, we've got a list of the best rollers, tongs and wands to create perfectly neat curly hair, for your perusal.
But for naturally curly haired women, the search for the perfect, smoothing styling tool - you know, the kind that might take you from frizzy poodle to blown-out Lassie - has become something like the quest for the golden fleece. A one-step device is an incredibly rare gem.
Which is why rumours of such a thing, at an affordable price no less, is really news indeed.
An unassuming wand called 'Salon One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumiser' by Revlon has climbed its way to the top of Amazon's 'Best Seller' list and the product reviews range from hilarious, to effusive in their praise.
It's not a brand new tool, of course, but in the last year, the sheer volume of positive feedback posts, plus the fact that much more expensive brands like Dyson have brought out similar looking products, have helped this affordable best-seller to gain true notoriety.
Over 15000 people have reviewed this wondrous device on Amazon, and more than 75% of them have given it top marks, with a five star review.
User Chris summed up her thoughts amusingly:
I have a lot of hair. A LOT. Like, wow, who is that Wookiee over there LOTS. I have looked into having a third arm surgically implanted (Is this a thing? Who would do it? Vascular surgery? Orthopedic surgery?These are the questions that keep me up at night🤔) because my shoulders are so tired holding up a dryer and a round brush for eternity. I briefly considered making a workout video (“Toned Arms: the Hairdryer Workout”), but was informed by fitness people that there isn’t a market for a 75-minute focus on the anterior deltoids. I almost have to wake up BEFORE I GO TO SLEEP in order to have enough time to dry my hair before work.
This thing took me 8 minutes.
Following in this vein, another user Josh had this to say:
I am honestly impressed, and that takes a lot!
I have super curly, thick, often frizzy hair (thanks Dad!) that is about halfway down my back. This cut my dry/style time down well below half of what it takes with a regular blow dryer and round brush. And best of all my hair looks like I spent a ton of time/money on it. Sleek, shiny, and not at all frizzy.
In Revlon's own words:
'The One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumiser is a 2-in-1 styling tool that places the power of a dryer and volume of a styler in your hands to deliver effortlessly beautiful full-bodied, frizz-free volume and brilliant shine in a single pass.
'There is no need to juggle a brush and a hair dryer at the same time. Even blow-drying the back of your hair is simple, so you can achieve all-round salon perfect hair in half the time.'
And the best thing about Revlon's supposed miracle worker? The price. Where Dyson's Airwrap styler will set you back £399.99 at a minimum, Revlon's one-step tool is available on Amazon for as little as £33.99, thanks to the Black Friday sale..
Still unconvinced? Here's an 'honest review' on Youtube:
Not sure if the genius heated hair brush will work on your shorter lengths? Fear not, because Revlon have treated us to a targeted version of the One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumiser specifically designed for bobs. And yes, it's also generously reduced right now.
If you're rocking a lob or a bob this season (ummm who isn't?) then the new version for short to mid-length hair is basically the only hair tool you need to get your hands on. With a brush that's 30% smaller than the original version, it really lets you get right into the roots to maximise the volume.
Combined with the same mixed bristles, triple heat setting options and frizz-reducing ionic technology as the original One-Step Dryer, this tool might just be your short hair's new best friend.
