For many of us, our straighteners are as vital to our hair care routine as shampoo and conditioner.

It’s the styling tool that can prevent frizz and static, smooth down unruly waves or kinks, add volume and style to flat tresses, and tame pesky flyaways.

Despite hair trends coming and going, nothing helps some women feel more put together than polka straight hair that falls like a waterfall past your shoulders.


If heat-styling is an integral part of your life, you’ll know how important it is to have the right tool.

The texture and thickness of the hair will determine whether you need a hotter, wider iron or if you need a straightener that offers a gentler heat treatment.

With a variety of salon-quality options on the market, there's definitely the perfect straightener for you!

ghd Unplugged™ Cordless Hair Straightener, $475

A modern twist on the unbeatable classic: now your ghd is cordless!

You no longer have to be confined to the corners of your rooms where there are powerpoints, which are usually the places furthest from the windows and natural lighting.

Now you can do your hair wherever you want - it’ll make getting ready at a friend or partners house even more accessible, as you don’t need your standard set up to get ready on the go.

The straightener has the usual ghd features of ceramic snag-free plates, dual-zone technology for consistent 185 styling heat, and an ergonomic design.

The classic styling tool is highly rated by the casual consumer all the way up to global pro-stylists.

Cloud 9 Evergreen Collection Wide Iron, $399

The Cloud 9 is a much beloved, state-of-the-art styling tool.

Pick up this limited editing forest green straightener that comes with a complementary scrunchie, comb, style case and bag.

The Wide Iron is an alternative to their classic OG straightener, with the wider black plates more suitable for people with longer, thicker or coarser hair.

Wide irons are also easier to use for creating bouncy, loose beach curls, if that’s something you’ve struggled to wrap your head (or hair) around.

The Cloud 9 has unique black ceramic plates which help to lock in your natural moisture, prevent snagging and keep your locks happy and healthy!

Bonus, if you're the forgetful type: the Cloud 9 straightener has an automatic hibernation mode, so you won't be burning the house down any time soon.

Dyson Corrale™ straightener, $699

Despite it being the priciest on our list, Dyson also arguably has the most enthusiastic fan base and stellar reviews.

As part of its new collection of hair care products, including the award-winning Airwrap, this Corrall straightener uses flexible copper plates to minimise heat damage on your hair.

It's suitable for those with thick, curly hair who usually struggle with straightening their hair, as these flexi-plates can heat the hair in fewer passes.

The temperature adjusts itself - checking every ten seconds - to suit the dexterity of your hair.

Like the ghd model, the Dyson also offers up to 30 minutes of cordless styling if fully charged.

When you buy a Dyson, you also get a brush, comb, carry case, charging dock and heat-resistant travel pouch.

Remington Proluxe You™ Adaptive Straightener, $189.95

This Remington styler uses innovative StyleAdapt tech that learns your hair styling needs and adapts the straighteners heat level to your perfect fit - minimising the risk of damage or breakage and helping you achieve all-day straightness.

The temperature range is from 150°C to 230°C and can heat up in 15 seconds.

This straightener also comes with a convenient silicone styling mat - no more burnt blankets and benches!

Pink Nav's Hair Titanium + Smart Technology Styling Iron, $79.95

If you’re someone that doesn’t straighten their hair often or just after a more affordable option, has a few models available.

This Nav’s Hair brand comes in five different colours - our personal fave is Barbie pink - and is kinder on your purse than other options on this list.

This straightener uses smooth titanium plates that promise to help lock in moisture and prevent frizz.
