If you’re buying a special present for someone, think about haircare. The latest products have some really clever tech inside them, bringing salon-quality styling into the home.

So, as well as giving someone the gift of great looking hair, you could also be saving them a fair bit of cash.

Need some inspiration? Here are a few products that make drying, straightening, and styling better than ever.

Dyson Supersonic hairdryer

The Dyson Supersonic is a fast hairdryer that lets you dry and style hair quickly – saving you loads of time when you’re getting ready to go out. Even though the motor is powerful, it’s small enough to fit in the handle. So, it’s light and comfortable to use. No more achy wrists while you get the right style.

It also uses intelligent heat control to protect your hair. It won’t over-heat your hair (or damage it) while you dry. It keeps the temperature consistent, no matter how long you have it on for.

Five magnetic attachments are included, and our favourite has to be the handy flyaway tool.

It’s been designed to style different types of hair from straight to wavy, and hides flyaways (those small frizzy hairs that stand up just to annoy you) under longer locks. It does all this by using something called the Coanda effect. This basically mimics a stylist's blow-dry technique by attracting hair to the curling barrel, then wrapping it for you using nothing but air – very clever stuff.

Dyson Corrale straightener

Just like the Dyson hairdryer above, the Corrale straightener is suitable for all hair types. Curly, wavy, straight, it does the lot. The really smart part is Dyson's flexing plate technology. It shapes around your hair and gathers it as it straightens, using less pressure and heat. This means less breakages, reduced frizz (yay to that), and fewer flyaways.

It’s also really comfortable to hold and use. It’s cordless too, giving you 30 minutes of styling – so you’ll be able to reach all those awkward angles easily. And if you’re working on a more complex style that you think might take a while, you can attach the magnetic 360° cord and work in ‘hybrid charge’ mode.

One more thing. It’s ready to go on holiday when you are. It’s flight-ready packaging means it can easily be slipped into your cabin luggage, and it supports universal voltage - so you can use it safely in other countries.

Dyson Airwrap styler

The Dyson Airwrap styler is another real time-saver. It’s designed to style your hair from damp, saving you from spending loads of time blow-drying and then styling. With a powerful airflow and carefully controlled heat, it dries and styles your hair in one step - so you can get ready in half the time.

This is a versatile piece of kit, with barrels and brushes for every style and hair type. You’ll be able to master every wave or curl, just like the pros.

For a relaxed look, the firm smoothing brush will help you create a straight style free of frizz and flyaways. Or go for the soft smoothing brush, for a salon-style blow-dry finish that's gentle on your scalp. There’s also a volumising brush to give you a full-bodied look.

If you want to go extra glam for special occasions, you can do that with the Airwrap barrels. The smaller 30mm barrels are great for tighter curls or waves, and the 40mm barrels give you a looser look.
