Don’t get us wrong — we love our kinked-out curls, but when our bed head looks a little less tousled and a little more Mia Thermopolis (pre-makeover), we crave change in the form of sleek strands. And, when the countless polish-promising products just aren’t enough, it’s time to turn up the heat.
Flat irons have come a long way since metal plates (remember the ones that could crimp your hair, too?), but choosing one that won’t snag your strands or fry them on the daily isn’t exactly child’s play.
That’s why we culled the usual suspects for the most efficient stylers that’ll tame your tresses and cut precious minutes off your morning routine. No matter if you’re going for sleek waves or a polished, straight look right out of a Pantene commercial, click through for our top hair straighteners that won’t leave you with a melted mane.
