Hair Straighteners make for a great Christmas gift as what girl doesn’t want super sleek, glossy and frizz-free hair? I’ve tried quite a few different hair straighteners over the years, and I think it can be quite hard to find the perfect styler that ticks all of the boxes. For me, the features that I look for with hair straighteners are; the ability to heat up quickly, a curved barrel for creating curls, shiny plates to glide through the hair easily and long lasting results. I had a BaByliss styler that cost around £60 and straightened my hair absolutely fine, however within an hour my frizzies would return which is just a nightmare. My newest hair straightener is Aria Beauty Black 1″ Ceramic Infrared Pro Styler £199.99* which has really impressed me.
The plates on the Aria styler
are 100% ceramic, with a tourmaline coating with the plates being an inch wide. The plates heat instantly and evenly, upto 450°F (230°C) in around five seconds which is amazing, and the fastest heat up I’ve ever seen.
The tourmaline infused, ceramic floating plates work to glide through the hair effortlessly without tugging, or causing damage and split ends
. The floating plates make it really easy to use the styler for creating curls, and the plates move with each movement which is kinder on the scalp as there’s less pulling.
What makes the Aria Beauty Ceramic Infrared Pro Styler
so unique, is that it has infrared heat technology which helps to preserve moisture within the hair shaft and protect the cuticle unlike other stylers, and the infrared helps to heat the hair evenly for a more professional long-lasting finish. When the styler is at the optimum temperature, you can see the infrared lights in the middle of each plates.
Aria Beauty Black 1″ Ceramic Infrared Pro Styler Review
The styler has an adjustable digital display, allowing you to choose the temperature you want which is a great feature; something you can’t do on ghd’s for example.. allowing you to opt for a cooler temperature if you have weaker, chemically treated hair. I think the digital display, and infrared technology makes this styler look very professional and high-tech and I really like the very sleek, black, rubberised texture of the styler as it feels so smooth in the hand and the rubber actually works as a grip too.
In terms of straightening the hair,
this is a fantastic pair of straighteners. The Aria Beauty Black 1″ Ceramic Infrared Pro Styler glides through my hair quickly, and evenly.. straightening my hair
in just one stroke, so I don’t have to keep repeating the same section.
Not only does the Infrared Pro Styler good at straightening the hair,
it also leaves my hair looking extremely shiny thanks to its negative ion technology which neutralises frizz and eliminates any static to create a very sleek finish. Amazingly, the negative ions collect any dust or dirt within the hair, to leave your hair clean, soft and healthy which is an amazing feature, and one I’ve never seen with other hair straighteners and ever since I got my hands on the Pro Styler a couple of months ago, I’ve not used any other straightener.
