I have quite an obsession with hair tools and there isn’t a day that goes by where I don’t use a hair tool of some kind albeit an hairdryer, hair straighteners, heated rollers or a curling wand. My hair is really quite long at waist length so I love using different tools to create different styles and the Aria Beauty Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set really is the ultimate hair tool set. The Aria Beauty Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set £239.99* is a large, beautiful giftset containing three Aria Beauty hot tools as well as a selection of accessories. I have the Purple Silk Set, although if you don’t like purple, they also do a sleek black set as well as a polka dot set too.
The Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set includes a 19mm Tourmaline Clipless Curler, a 1.25″ Ceramic Pro Styler as well as a Travel Ionic Hairdryer. All three of the tools have a gorgeous deep purple, rubberised coating which feels like velvet to the touch. They all look so pretty, and they really stand out amongst my other, plainer black styling tools.
The set also includes an impressive amount of accessories including a heatproof glove, a sectioning comb, two sectioning clips, a mini diffuser and a nozzle. Aria Beauty really have included everything you could possibly need minus styling products, to help create your chosen style. I love how the clips and comb are purple to match the styling tools.
The first tool within the Aria Beauty Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set is the 19mm Tourmaline Clipless Curler which retails for £120 individually. The curling tong heats upto 204 degrees within only ten seconds of being plugged in and has a dual voltage of 110-240v. The curler has a tourmaline infused ceramic barrel, with a clipless design for smooth, dent free curls.
The curling wand is amazingly lightweight at only 110 grams, which makes curling my hair so easy as most curling wands are quite heavy so they end up leaving my arms aching by the time I’ve finished, but this curler weighs very little. It has a super handy swivel cord which also makes curling even easier as you can twist it 360 degrees without the wire getting tangled up.
What I particularly love about this 19mm curler is how narrow the barrel is as I don’t have any curling wands with a barrel as thin as this one.. they’re all a lot thicker in width. The smaller barrel is actually a lot more versatile than a standard thicker wand, as you can create tight ringlet type curls with thinner pieces of hair, or you can create tight waves with thicker pieces of hair. The curler creates such shiny curls and waves thanks to its negative ion technology and smooth tourmaline finished barrel.
Next up is the 1.25″ Ceramic Pro Styler which retails for £120 when bought separately. The straighteners have 100% ceramic plates with a tourmaline coating and an adjustable knob which allows the temperature to be adjusted from 60 degrees to 230 degrees. I really like how the temperature can be manually adjusted on these straighteners to your personal preference, as ghd stylers have just one heat setting.
The rounded, smooth barrel of the styler is ideal for creating curls as they glide through the hair without any tugging. The straighteners have floating plates which makes straightening the hair, very easy as the plates give the hair the tension needed to curl or straighten, but the hair still glides through the plates in smooth movements.
I love the textured, diamond design on the handles of the styler as it gives good grip especially when using them to curl the hair. Like the curling wand, this styler has a negative ion charge which eliminates static and frizz and leaves the hair silky smooth. The styler has infra red heat which is designed to soften the hair, and seal in the hair’s cuticle for a smoother, softer finish.
The Pro Styler also has a 9 foot swivel cord making styling easy, as well as a velcro tie to keep the cord tidy. I find that I can use a temperature of around 200 degrees on the lengths of my hair, and I like to use a lower temperature of 160 degrees on the roots of my hair, and the annoying fine ‘baby hair’ that can be tamed without the need of excessive heat.
The last tool in the Aria Beauty Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set is a Travel Ionic Hairdryer which is a great compact size that is really lightweight. The hairdryer has high heat with two speed settings which is pretty impressive for a travel dryer, as they usually only have one speed setting. Just like the curling wand, the dryer has a dual voltage of 110-240v which is ideal for a dryer you can take when travelling when voltages differ in different countries.
Even though this is a compact travel hairdryer, it has a removable filter at the back which can be unscrewed and cleaned which is a feature I’ve never seen on a travel dryer before, but is really handy as dust can be cleaned to stop the motor from burning out.
Again like the straighteners and curling wand, the dryer has negative-ion technology which break apart water molecules quickly thus reducing drying time, as well as reducing frizz and static in the hair, for a sleeker finish. For a compact dryer, I’m impressed at how powerful it is.. it doesn’t take long to dry my thick, long hair and it’s not too loud either.
Overall, I absolutely love the Aria Beauty Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set. All three of the hot tools included, are of amazing quality in terms of performance and style.. even though looks aren’t everything, you can’t deny that this trio isn’t easy on the eye – I’m in love with the pretty purple design.
There’s no doubt that this is a costly purchase, but if you were in the market for at least two of three tools; curling wand, hairdryer and hair straighteners, then I’d recommend taking a look at this Aria Beauty Purple Silk Ultimate Style Set. I think any girl would LOVE to open this beautiful set come Christmas Day.. it’s stunning.
