Best travel straighteners

ghd mini styler

The ghd gold V mini styler is another great option for a travel straightener because the smaller plates won’t take up much room, and it’s lighter in weight too. Ideal if you’re worried about baggage charges at the airport.

The mini styler might be small in size, but it still has the excellent quality associated with ghd hair tools, with golden contoured plates that glide through the hair, leaving it looking glossy.

The great thing about the mini styler is that they have a rounded barrel, so you can create curls and waves with them too. Plus, the casing they’re housed in is designed to stay cooler for longer, so although they’re thin you’re not going to burn your fingers.

The ghd mini styler also has universal voltage, so they’re ideal to use all the world over.

Cloud Nine Micro Iron

Being only six inches in length, the Cloud Nine Micro Iron is a great travel straightener, as well as being small enough to use for fringes. The straightener has all the same great design qualities of the Cloud Nine original iron, so your hair benefits from them, as well as the small design taking up minimal space in your case or hand luggage.

Babyliss Pro pink nano mini hair straightener

The Babyliss Nano straightener is a great travel straightener, mainly due to the low-cost price. It makes a great choice to have packed in your suitcase for when you need it. Even though the small design might mean you won’t use it at home.

The straightener is just 16cm long and weighs just 0.22kg, so it won’t make the biggest dent in your baggage allowance.

The Babyliss Nano has ceramic plates that glide through your locks, there’s little snagging and you get a smooth finish, quickly. The multi-voltage ensures you can travel with confidence and the bright pink design is eye-catching enough to ensure you won’t lose these small and compact straighteners.
