9 Hair Tools that Celebs, Fashion Girls and Beauty Editors Swear By

When it comes to haircare basics like how often you should actually be washing your hair or the hair products that I use on a weekly basis, I've got things pretty well worked out. When it comes to hair tools, however, it's a whole different ball game. Between hair straighteners and hair dryers and curling tongs and chopstick wands, it can be tricky to know which tools are genuinely worth adding to your haircare arsenal and which ones are just a passing fad.

Recently, though, it seems like more and more celebs, fashion girls and beauty editors are taking to social media to rave about the hair tools that they've been loving or to share snapshots of the gadgets that their hair stylists have been using to prep their hair behind the scenes.

Case in point: the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer (£300) which Rosie Huntington-Whiteley raved about on her beauty website, Rose Inc, just last month.

Enlisting the help of some of the world's top hair stylists and engineers in its design, the Dyson Hair Dryer has quickly become a backstage staple and celebrity stylist favourite thanks to its fast-drying capabilities, shine-boosting temperature control and lightweight hold.

With new attachments—like the gentle dryer for sensitive or young scalps and the wide tooth comb for type 3 and 4 curly hair—it pretty much works for all hair types too. And, I have to say, having tried the £300 hair dryer for myself I can confirm that Rosie is correct—it genuinely is pretty damn good.
