Collexia Professional Hairdryer: The Collexia dryer has a unique patented dual-fan system that doubles the volume of airflow. Collexia greatly reduces drying times without increasing hair-damaging heat like other dryers, and is lighter and up to a third smaller than most dryers. Collexia have also created an ingenious system which delivers nourishing, repairing, shine-enhancing hair treatment, while you blow dry.
ghd Curve Classic Curl Tong: The ghd Curve Classic Curl Tong has a 26mm medium barrel with spring activated ergonomic lever to create consistent curls, even on shorter hair. The protective cool tip provides you with a safe place to hold the hair in place while you curl, and the built-in safety stand allows you to place the tong down securely during styling. Each ghd curve tong contains patented tri-zone ceramic technology that allows you to style at the safe-for-hair heat. This is maintained with six quick thinking sensors in the tri-zone barrel, which ensures the optimum temperature is delivered constantly and evenly all along the barrel of the tong; delivering lasting curls that are formed fast and stay locked in, while respecting the health of your hair.
