A special event calls for something more exciting than your usual ponytail. But you don’t need to book a pricey blow out — you can get celeb-worthy hair with a tool that costs less than a venti latte. Click through to find out more about this wonder product.
To my father’s never-ending dismay, I always forget the difference between an Allen wrench and a Phillips head and couldn’t put together an Ikea cabinet to save my life. Suffice to say, I will not be stepping anywhere near a power drill anytime soon. But, over the past year, I have become quite proficient in another type of tools — those of the beauty variety. Which is why I’m so excited about our brand new Tools category in the Birchbox Shop. We’ve filled it with the all-star cleansers, brushes, hair dryers, and more that we can’t live without. You’ll find the Clarisonic, the cleansing brush that is responsible for Team Birchbox’s glowing skin, plus a super-powered flat iron and the cutest mini eye touch up kit. Oh, and a teasing brush — everyone needs one of those.
Don’t know where to start? Check out Amika’s Go-Go Travel Set — a small but mighty hair dryer and flat iron duo. A must for travel but too adorable to keep hidden under your sink.
