Styling iron showdown

Heat styling is a hot topic for us at BeautySA. ‘Are the plates too hot’, ‘should they be used on wet hair’, ‘how often can I use my flatiron’ are typical questions we’ve had to answer recently. But the most important advice we can give you is to never use an inferior product. Below we’ve listed our favourite stylers at the moment…

Styling iron showdown: GlamPalm Standard Magic

GlamPalm Standard Magic Hair Styler, R1,899

custom ceramic plates with Healing Stone tech
rapid heating and heat recovery
adjustable temperature settings (150 – 200 degrees)
3-metre swivel cord
heat resistant cap
automatic shut off
sectioning clips

We love: the Healing Stone technology that actually heals your hair as it styles. The negative ions emitted from the plates smooth the cuticle layer, minimising keratin damage. Oh, and it also has this pretty nifty vibrate function – it’s a great reminder if you’ve kept the plates on your strands for too long!

Styling iron showdown: BaByliss Sublim' Touch 2-in-1

BaByliss Sublim’ Touch 2-in-1

temperature regulator with LED screen (130 – 200 degrees)
flat and curved plates
ceramic-coated Sublim’ touch plates
locking system for plates
automatic switch off
swivel cord

We love: the curling top plates that make it just as easy to curl as it is to straighten your locks. Simply turn the styler 180 degrees upwards and slowly glide it over the length of your hair.

Styling iron showdown: Toni&Guy Professional Straightner

Toni&Guy Professional Straightener

temperature control and lock with LED screen (80 – 230 degrees)
ceramic tourmaline floating plates
auto shut off
3-metre swivel cord

We love: the super fast speed with which the styler heats up. You can literally watch the temperature rise in less than 60 seconds on the sleek and stylishly designed LED screen.

  1. I would recommend any Toni&Guy products as they are excellent! I have a T&G hairdryer which is more than 4 yrs old but still works like a charm. I have a revlon straightener at the moment but i know I will eventually get a T&G straightening iron.

  2. I very rarely straighten my hair – the effect is lovely, but with my thick long hair it takes hours!! (About the only time i yearn for thin wispy locks, LOL).

  3. I need that Toni & Guy Professional Straightener in my life. my hair stylist used it on my hair and the results were lovely. I need to get my own.
