It’s a common misconception in the hairdressing world that the best hair tools on the market are the most expensive – but some of the curling irons, blow dryers and more that professional hairstylists love the most actually don’t costs an entire month’s rent. In fact, some of the most recommended hair tools that experts use on a regular basis cost less than $50.
Sure, expensive, high-tech hair tools can be great. Dropping hundreds and hundreds of dollars on them? That part isn’t so great — and that’s where the experts come in. To find them, Bustle asked celebrity hairstylist Glenn Ellis and stylist and Blondies & Co. Salon founder Jessica Page to share their favorite hair tools under $50.
There are plenty of more budget-friendly options that can do just as good a job as their more expensive counterparts. You do not believe it ? Read on to see how you can take your at-home hairdressing game to the next level on a budget. (Thanks to the beauty gods.)
