FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Which handheld hair dryer do professionals prefer?
Rather than going for a certain brand, hair stylists usually choose handheld professional hair dryers based on heat and speed settings, accessories, cord length, and weight. The ideal hair dryer is lightweight and comfortable to use for long periods of time, has multiple heat settings (including a cool-shot option), blows air fast, comes with a diffuser and at least one concentrator, and its cord is long enough to move around the client with ease.
What are the differences between a professional hairdryer and a home hair dryer?
When considering handheld designs, professional hair dryers perform better and come at a higher cost than those typically chosen for home use. They are more powerful, have longer cords, and are usually fitted with more accessories. While anyone can replace their home hair dryer with a professional handheld one, if they don't mind the price, salons should not cut costs by doing things the other way around. Besides handheld models, our selection of salon hair dryers also includes infrared devices and hood dryers that are exclusively for professionals. These can either be wall-mounted or on a pedestal.
What is the best way to clean hair styling tools?
Hair styling appliances like hair dryers, curlers, and straighteners must be turned off, unplugged, and allowed to fully cool down before cleaning. To clean handheld salon hair dryers, remove the lint filter at the back and rinse it with warm water until all debris comes off. Use a soft bristle brush to get rid of any dust that doesn't easily come off and completely dry the filter before reattaching it. The body of the hair dryer and other accessories can be simply wiped with a lightly moistened cloth, followed by a dry one, making sure no water makes its way inside the appliance. You can also use a disinfecting agent to clean the handle.
Damp and dry microfiber cloths are also suitable for cleaning curlers and hair straighteners that do not have product residue stuck on them. If they do, you can create your own appliance cleaner by mixing baking soda with a small amount of hydrogen peroxide until you get the consistency of a paste. Apply it on the curling iron barrel and let it sit for 5-10 minutes before scrubbing it away with a soft cloth, fully removing both hair product residue and cleaning mixture. If the straightening iron has ceramic plates, you can wipe them with a cotton pad and a bit of rubbing alcohol while still lukewarm.
When it comes to other hair styling tools, like hair brushes and combs, you need to completely remove hair from them after each client. To clean oil and product buildup from hair brushes, you can use a small amount of shampoo on a toothbrush and a bowl with warm water. Make sure you scrub all the bristles, as well as the base of the hairbrush, rinse it in the bowl and let it dry face down on a towel.
What are the main differences between hair styling brushes (round, boar bristle, vent brush, etc.)?
Round brushes are perfect for blowouts, with large ones recommended for straightening the hair or creating subtle waves, and smaller ones for tighter curls. Thermal brushes can speed up drying as they are made with heat-conducting materials like ceramic, titanium, or tourmaline. Boar bristle brushes help distribute oils from the scalp evenly throughout the hair. They are gentle on all hair types and particularly recommended for people with fine or aging hair. Vented brushes are ideal for quickly drying hair that is still soaking wet as the vents let the hot air from the hair dryer flow through all hair layers.
What is the best styling aid for detangling?
Before styling your client's hair, you might have to deal with hair knots. This is where a detangler brush comes in handy, as its flexible bristles minimize damage and pain. Other hair-styling accessories that help detangle hair include 7- or 9-row styling brushes with smooth nylon pins and wide-tooth combs. All these tools benefit from applying a detangling spray on the wet hair just after washing.
What is the right way to use a bobby pin?
Bobby pins come in two sizes and you have to choose the right one for the amount and type of hair that it needs to hold in place. Long grips are flat, with a "toe" on one prong, whereas standard or short grips have one wavy prong. Long bobby pins are recommended for thicker hair and they should be inserted with the "toe" on top, wiggling it through the hair up and down and then twisting it so that the "toe" is on the bottom. When securing flyouts with a standard bobby pin, the wavy prong should be against the scalp, with the bobby pin opening pointing down. Try to keep the pins closed when sliding them through the hair and let the "toe" do the work, otherwise you risk catching too much hair and give it the opportunity to slide out.
What are the differences between hair pins and bobby pins?
Hair pins are U-shaped and meant to effortlessly hold buns and updos in place with a simple twist, whereas bobby pins close at the tip to tame flyaways and pin the hair down to the head or away from the face.
