Lee Stafford has expanded his successful hair styling tool range with the launch of The Academy pieces, a hair dryer and hair straightener.

Lee Stafford fulfilled a lifelong dream of opening his first Lee Stafford Academy in 2012, aiming to revolutionise education in the hairdressing industry.

The award-winning hairdresser has created this latest, The Lee Stafford Academy Range, to expand on the success of his academy and the results it yields.

Lee Stafford says: “I’ve combined my training expertise with the highest industry standards to create tools that are easy to use, look great and will deliver time and time again.”

Lee Stafford Academy Dryer 4A powerful dryer that leaves you with professional results, the Academy Dryer features a professional motor which delivers salon-quality performance at home. It also dries your hair much faster, and thanks to the super slim concentrator nozzle you can get your hair looking sleeker with little effort.

The hair dryer features a rubberised grip handle so it’s easier to grip and more comfortable to hold, perfect for those who have yet to master the quick blow dry.

The ultra thin nozzle concentrator directs the powerful airflow, to smooth your hair follicles, leaving you with glossy and healthy looking hair.

Lee’s hot tip: For a sleek blow dry, make sure The Dryer’s ultra thin 6mm concentrator is facing down the hair shaft, from root to tip.

The Academy straightener

Lee Stafford Academy Straightener 2Features Nano Silver Titanium plates to ensure better heat conduction for stable and fast heat transfer and will effortlessly glide through hair.

Straightener features

  • Nano silver titanium plates
  • 23mm floating plates
  • Counts up to the set temperature as it heats up
  • Variable heat control from 80C to 230C
  • Universal voltage

Lee Stafford Academy Straightener 3Style your hair in minutes thanks to the ultra fast heat up on The Academy straighteners from Lee Stafford, which, along with advanced technology, provide excellent hair styling results.

It takes just 10 seconds for the nano silver titanium plates to heat up, and then they’re ready to glide through hair easily. The ionic plates mean that negative ions generated make your hair frizz-free and manageable.

Use them to straighten your locks or the rounded body can create curls with ease too.

The black straighteners look sleek, with bright pink highlights for a feminine touch, they also feature grip points for better holding whilst you style. Ideal for those who are prone to dropping their straighteners and burning themselves or the surfaces around them.

The hair straightener heats from 80°C to 120°C too, so you can tailor the tool to your specific hairs’ needs. We particularly love the heat protection guard that comes with the straighteners too, not only do they protect the plates as you store them, but they protect your feet from accidentally standing on a burning hot plate.

Lee’s hot tip: Create ‘undone waves’ by creating an S shape with two-inch sections of hair, clamping down with The Straightener to set into shape. Continue doing this until all the hair is done and you’ll be left with effortless waves.

Bottom line

An incredibly professional range from Lee Stafford, they cost more than his usual line of electrical tools, but the quality shows itself in the products.

Ionic technology, professional motors, nano silver plates, it’s all details we expect from electrical hair tools now and Lee Stafford delivers in beautiful looking products we’d happily leave on show on our dressing table.
