It's no surprise that hair tools invented by hair stylists are some of the most genius out there. After all, these pros spend their days cutting, curling, and styling, so they're bound to have run into the same hair problems you have on a daily basis. With so many clients and so little time, they need products they can count on to work efficiently. So, what do they do when they can't find a product that suits their needs on the market? Make their own!
I was always one to buy the cheapest hair styling tools on the market, but then I met the Buttercup Blow Dryer from Drybar. Created by founder Alli Webb, its purpose is to help women achieve an easy at-home blowout on their own. When I saw how fast my hair dried and how shiny and smooth it looked, I learned to never underestimate the power of a stylist-approved hair dryer. So, I compiled a list of the genius hair tools on the market created by hairstylists.
From curling irons that do the work themselves to blow dryers that cut drying time in half, these hair stylists used their tips and tricks to develop tools that make your life so much easier.
1. Beachwaver Rotating Curling Iron
Created by celebrity hair stylist Sarah Potempa, the now-famous Beachwaver curling iron was responsible for created those iconic waves spotted at the Victoria's Secret Fashion Show. All you have to do is press a button — the barrel rotates around your hair to create perfect curls like magic.
2. Drybar Buttercup Blow Dryer
A good hair dryer is worth the investment. Drybar's signature Buttercup hair dryer uses a powerful motor and "NanoIonic Technology" to help dry your hair faster, making it especially helpful for thick hair. Created by DryBar founder, Alli Webb, this tool makes it easy for you to achieve a salon blowout at home. Plus, it's so cute!
3. DevaCurl DevaFuser
As a curly-haired girl herself, DevaCurl founder and stylist Lorraine Massey understands the struggle. She created the DevaCurl DevaFuser, an attachment specially for curly hair that's compatible with most hair dryers on the market. It has a unique hand-shaped design and 360 degree airflow that dries your hair from the inside to create soft, frizz-free curls.

7. Jose Eber Hair Straightener
When you're in a rush, even waiting 30 seconds for a straightener to heat up is asking for a lot. Stylist Jose Eber's hair straightener changes the game because it only takes five seconds to heat up. (That's right, five seconds!) Plus, its ergonomic design, light weight, and long power cord make it super easy to use.
8. BIO-IONIC Powerlight Blow Dryer
BIO-IONIC founder Fernando Romero was the first one to introduce ionic technology into the hair market. To this day, the lightweight Power Light Blow Dryer can dry your hair in as fast as 10 minutes thanks to the negative ions that break down water molecules in the hair, leaving it shiny and smooth.
