How do you style your hair? Do you use special tools? Or do you just let your hair go, au naturel?
Honestly, it’s always much easier to style your hair when you’ve got all the essential tools to get the job.
That’s why in today’s article, we’re listing down the 6 must-have hair tools that every girl should keep at home!
1. Styling comb
A styling comb is one of the most basic must have hair tools. It is, without a doubt, the most important tool you need to style your hair at home. It doesn’t need to be extra special, nor do you need to spend a lot of money on it. The only requirement is that it has a pointed tip so that you can create that perfect part.
You need to use the right hair brushes if you want to style your hair properly. Contrary to popular belief, brushes aren’t created equal and they actually have different tasks when it comes to hairstyling.
For instance, a round brush can help you brush your hair while retaining its waves or curls, giving it a nice volume. A paddle brush is better suited for straight-haired people who want to keep their hair sleek and smooth. If your hair easily tangles, you may also need to prepare a detangler before styling your hair.

A hairdryer is probably the most essential out of all the must-have hair tools for women who work in the office.
Hairdryers, like the name suggest, can help you dry your hair faster and easier. The only caveat is that they also tend to dry out your hair, which as you know, is never a good thing. Too much hairdryer use, along with other heat-styling tools, is also associated with dehydrated and frizzy hair.
That said, if you have proper hairstyling habits, you shouldn’t be too worried either. Based on a study conducted in 2011, using a hairdryer at a distance of at least 15 cm and with continuous motion can greatly minimize the possible damage.
4. Hair curlers
If you enjoy donning wavy or curly hairstyles, you have two main options for temporary styling.
The first option is to use traditional curlers, which usually take a lot of time to set but are generally harmless on your strands. The second option is to use a curling iron, which only takes a few minutes at most. The only downside is that it’s a heat-styling tool, which means that frequent usage and misuse can lead to damaged hair.

5. Flat iron
Just like a curling wand, a flat iron can help style your hair faster and easier. The only difference is that a curling wand results in curls, while a flat iron typically results in straight hair. We say typically because believe it or not, a flat iron can be used to create curls as well.
Just like the previous two heat-styling tools listed here, make sure that you use a protective serum before using a flat iron. Also, only use it when absolutely necessary and try to avoid it as much as you can.
6. Pins or clips
f you’re doing hairstyles yourself at home, there’s no way you can’t have pins or clips at arm’s length. Pins and clips are the best way to section off your hair, secure a bun, or support an updo.
They may be small, but they’re incredibly helpful no matter what style you may want to achieve.
Must-have hair tools at home
These 6 tools will definitely help you out when you want to style your hair at home. Which one do you already have?
Do take note that you should be careful about using heat-styling tools like hairdryers, curlers, and flat irons often. Before you use them, you should first put on some protective serums in order to minimize all possible damages to your strands.
