1. Drybar Curling Irons

Drybar Hair Styling Tools Review

Drybar curling irons are not only adorable and intriguing but packed with several impressive features to help you rock your curls. These ergonomic designs come in an appealing buttercup yellow color that is also the company’s signature color. The most amazing thing about their curling iron barrels is that they are equipped with a unique mixture of 32 minerals that releases nourishing ions in your hair. These negatively charged ions aid the curling iron to dry water molecules at a faster rate, prevent frizzy, drying issues to maintain the shine, and make your hair look healthier.

In addition to this, Drybar features an impressive array of curling irons with a rotating barrel to cut the time required for styling in half and give a salon-like finish at home. People generally prefer this type of barrel over others because it gives a natural and creaseless look to your curls rather than setting them tight like a regular curling iron. If you are not a great fan of rotating barrels, then you can go for Drybar’s reverse-taper no slip barrel that is a great option to hold the thickest and longest hair strands in place without hampering the process. Reverse taper barrels deliver tightly defined curls that are narrower from their top and bigger towards ends. Another impressive option is the one with three interchangeable attachments that fit easily into the handle’s ergonomic style. These attachments include a 1-inch wand for more defined, tight, springy curls, a 1.25-inch one for slightly bigger and medium-sized waves, and a waver for classic loose beachy waves. People like the opportunity of achieving different looks from one hair styling tool as it also spares them from hoarding unnecessary products in the cabinet.

The soft grip of Drybar hair curling irons provides better control over the tool to ensure maximum satisfaction and customization of the hairstyle. Their curling irons also feature a professional length 360 degrees rotatable 9 ft cord so that you can style your hair from all directions effortlessly. 


Coming down to technologies infused in Drybar hair styling tools, they have used none other than the best. Drybar hair curling irons are equipped with the latest ionic technology that helps them to get rid of water molecules at a faster rate to leave your gorgeous hair with shiny, healthy-looking, and bouncy curls. 

On the other hand, we have Infrared technology that assists the curling iron to heat up to the desired temperature in the blink of an eye. Moreover, it also helps to maintain long-lasting curls without causing much damage from high heat.

Heat settings

Drybar hair curling irons have in-built ceramic heaters to heat within 60 seconds, sustain a uniform temperature and heat settings throughout the appliance. Moreover, the digital temperature control shows the precise temperature and can heat the curling iron up to 450°F/232°C for personalized styling. You also get a 60-minute automatic safety shut-off feature that makes Drybar curling irons suitable and safer for younger teens as well.

Who does not like the Drybar’s combination of a detangling brush and a hairdryer? We all do because, let’s be honest, it is one of the most practical and useful appliances in our makeup vanity. It ingeniously combines the hot air of a blow dryer with the ergonomic oval structure of hairbrushes to give you a shiny boost of voluminous hair.

Design of Drybar Blow Dryer Brush

If you have ever purchased a Drybar hair styling tool, then you will notice that The Double Shot Blow-Dryer Brush by Drybar has inherited the classic buttercup yellow color. It has an extremely lightweight oval-shaped body with slightly curved edges to provide a smooth salon-like finish. Instead of scratching or harshly pulling your hair, the Drybar blow dryer brush gently detangles your hair with soft nylon and tufted bristles. For maximum volume and high-velocity airflow, vents are placed ingeniously on the brush to cut the blow drying time in half and speed up the process. In addition to this, you can also notice a filter at the bottom of the  Double Shot blow-dryer brush that allows the passage for more air.

The product feels quite sturdy in your hands with a soft grip for maximum comfort and control. It also has a pretty long 360 degrees rotatable professional cord that buyers absolutely adore as it reduces the strain on their wrists. 


The Drybar Double Shot blow-dryer brush is equipped with Ionic technology that releases numerous negatively charged ions while simultaneously drying and styling your hair. These ions aid the brush to break water molecules to dry without making your hair super frizzy or dry. Another great advantage of ionic technology is that it makes your hair shinier, smoother, manageable, and above all, healthier.

On the other hand, the mini version of the same product has a single concentrator nozzle for targeted airflow and making the drying process of specific sections a lot easier.
