Here are our 6 favorite hairstyling tools for the older woman:

  5. Revlon Smooth Brilliance Ceramic Hair Flat Iron – Defrizz, smooth, and curl with this flat iron.
  6. REVLON One-Step Volumizer – Dry and style all at once with this hot air brush.

I’m always curious about new hairstyling tools that are continuously being designed – from the good old hair dryer to the device that gives you sweeping luscious curls in the blink of an eye. Let’s take a look at some new hair styling tools that you may not even know exist.

Tip: An excellent way to learn how to use a new tool is to watch YouTube video tutorials.


Hair Dryers

Hair dryers are obviously nothing new. But new models are being designed that dry hair faster, are less bulky, and make less noise. Lighter hair dryers are an excellent choice as we age. This is especially true if you have arthritis or limited mobility in your hands, wrists, or shoulders.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is engineered to protect hair from extreme heat damage with its controlled airflow technology. It is fast drying and helps increase natural shine and minimize flyaways. It is lightweight and balanced with the motor in the handle instead of the head. The powerful motor is tuned to produce one inaudible frequency.

InStyler Turbo Max Ionic Dryer

InStyler Turbo Max Ionic Dryer

The Turbo Max hair dryer from InStyler is a breakthrough in hair dryer technology. It dries hair up to 35% faster and retains moisture for smooth and shiny hair. This dryer is ultra-lightweight and has an ergonomic design that makes drying and styling your hair comfortable and easy.

Curling Irons and Wands

Curling irons have also come a long way since the days of the tortuous high-heat irons that would burn our hair to a crisp.

New materials like ceramic and titanium are used to help protect the hair and cause less heat damage.

Conair Curling Wand

Conair Curling Wand

I discovered curling wands several years ago and haven’t looked back. This curling wand is perfect to create soft beachy waves without pressing the volume out of the hair as a traditional curling iron does. Perfect if you have fine hair.

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Spring Curling Iron

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Spring Curling Iron

This curling iron from BaBylissPro has a ceramic-covered titanium barrel that uses far-infrared heat that heats the hair shaft from within for styling with less damage. It’s also lightweight and easy to use.

Flat Irons

Flat irons are super versatile and can be used to flatten hair, add shine, and create curls and waves.

Revlon Smooth Brilliance Ceramic Hair Flat Iron

Revlon Smooth Brilliance Ceramic Hair Flat Iron

This flat iron from the trusted brand Revlon is made with ionic tourmaline plates that help fight frizz and create shine. It is lightweight, ergonomic, and will shut itself off if you forget it on.

Hot Air Brushes

Hot air brushes are the new kid on the block and have gained tremendous popularity. They are great to dry hair without frizz and create volume.

REVLON One-Step Volumizer

REVLON One-Step Volumizer

My daughter introduced me to this hot air brush from Revlon, and I love the volume it gives my hair. This device lets you dry and style all in one instead of using a hair dryer and a hairbrush combo.

Remember that it’s important to protect your hair when using heated devices. Use thermal sprays before styling to keep your hair protected from heat damage.
