Investing in a good pair of straighteners is the best thing you’ll do all year. Sadly though one size doesn’t fit all – there is a lot to consider when choosing your tool. With a wide variety of brands, different plate types (ceramic, titanium) varying width and temperature settings and whether it boasts the latest ionic technology, there is a lot to think about.
So to help, we’ve rounded up 5 of the best luxury straighteners. Don’t be deceived though, they are more versatile than the name suggests. Check out our list below for a great investment that will help you create a myriad of looks.
Dyson Corrale Cord-Free Hair Straighteners
Designed with patented ‘flexing’ plates that grip every strand, you’ll minimize styling time and won’t need to go over the same section twice – meaning reduced heat damage. The Corrale also comes in a heat-resistant travel pouch and flight mode operation which you can take it in your carry-on, and the battery life is around 30 minutes fully charged.
Ghd Gold Professional Styler
A lightweight product that certainly lives up to the hype, this ghd straightener can do more than just straighten. The rounded barrel means it excels at creating beach waves and curls, it takes 25 seconds to heat up and will turn itself off after 30 minutes so you don’t have that sudden panic on your commute.

This cordless gem allows you to create salon-worthy looks in no time. Designed with effortless magnetic charging that reaches its full power in 3 hours, has three temperature settings and is ready to use within seconds, this is the perfect traveling companion.

Constructed with tourmaline technology within the plates, this straightener will leave you with an editorial-worthy finish while helping to lock in moisture when used with hair treatments. The digital display will allow you to choose the temperature from 140 degrees up.
