We love our tried-and-true hot tools, but some of our clunkier devices are far from travel-friendly. That’s where the best travel-size hair tools come in to save our vacation looks. Whether you’re traveling to a frizz-inducing tropical climate or attending a destination wedding, hair is most likely the biggest part of your beauty routine that needs serious adaptation on the road — and, of course, wanderlusters forget about far too often.
Doing your hair on vacation doesn’t have to be complicated. Of course, you can always rock the natural look flawlessly, but if you’d rather blowout, curl, or straighten your strands during your vacay, we’ve compiled a list of the mini hair styling tools that’ll perform just as well as your full-size favorites, even when you’re miles (and maybe even an ocean or two) away from home. These tools won’t take up too much room whether you’re checking a bag or simply traveling with a carry-on and will ensure you have a vacation entirely filled with effortlessly gorgeous styles.
Jet-setting soon? Don’t forget to pack one of these TSA-friendly travel stylers. Below, check out the best compact hairstyling tools Allure editors and pro hairstylists alike adore — just make sure to pack a bottle of heat protectant, too.
