Great hair doesn’t come cheap, but that does not mean that you cannot rock salon-worthy hair on a budget. This roundup of the top hair straighteners has something for everything.


Are your 2021 hair goals aligned with sleek, straight hair strands? It's your lucky day because this compilation of high-performance hair straighteners will help you rock salon-worthy hair without leaving you in a financial crisis.

Unlike those who style their hair every day, most of us do not plan to buy an expensive straightener. However, we still want a good hair straightener that will not leave our hair frizzy and heat-damaged.

1. Beachwaver Co. Coast Pro Titanium Styling Iron


Price: $99.00

Beachwaver Co.'s hair accessories have made their name in the beauty industry, but the Coast Pro styling iron is no different. The most outstanding feature about this tool is its versatility in achieving multiple looks.

Use it for a sleek hair look or install the pair of black attachments and glide the iron down your sectioned hair. To create a professional blowout illusion, consider twisting your wrist downwards towards the ends of your hair.

2. BabylissPro 9000 Cordless


Price: $129.99

The Babyliss 9000 Cordless Collection guarantees you value for your money. It offers a 28 mm waving wand, a high-performance hair straightener, and a 25mm curling tong, making it the best multifunctional option.

Powered by a Micro Heating Matrix technology, the Babyliss 9000 Cordless hair straightener has five temperature settings. This makes it perfect for all hair types.

3. GHD Platinum+ Professional Performance Styler


The Platinum+ Professional Performance Styler has some pretty cool features. The straightener maintains a temperature of 365, but efficiently adjusts the power exerted by the tool onto different hair sections.

The GHD hot tool adjusts its power settings by examining your hair sections’ thickness. As a result, you get evenly straightened hair without worrying about heat damage.

4. Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Flat Styling Iron 1.25 Inch


With renowned celebrities like Gisele using this flatiron, it is rather apparent that, like its sister blow-dryer by Harry Josh, this 1.25-inch green-plated Ceramic Flat Styling Iron is worth investment.

Its massive plates and rounded edges prevent pulling and snagging. Besides, you will love this hair straightener if you are the forgetting type, as it automatically shuts off after an hour.

5. Dyson Corrale Flatiron


Price: $599.99

The Dyson Corrale flatiron features flexing plates that gather each hair strand going through to apply even heat. This means that one pass over a section is enough, which significantly reduces the chances of heat damage.

The hair straightener maintains three heat settings by self-regulation at the rate of up to 100 times a second. The cherry on the top is that you can straighten your hair wirelessly as long as you charge it when the battery is low.

6. Kristin Ess 3-in-One Flatiron


Price: $80

You can always count on Kristin Ess hair tools for high-performance and affordability. The two titanium plates on the Kristin Ess 3-in-One Flatiron delivers up to 440 degrees of heat fast and evenly to your hair.

The flat iron is also designed with a shine-boosting technology that guarantees you silky hair after each heat application. And like the Harry Josh Pro Tools Ceramic Flat Styling Iron 1.25 Inch, it also shuts off automatically.

7. Drybar Tiny Tress Press Detailing Iron


Price: $ 60.35

With Drybar's Tiny Tress Press Detailing Iron, you can rest assured that all the tiny, stubborn hairs along your forehead will fall into place after heat application. Its size gives it the advantage of reaching even the finest hairs.

It also means you have more control of the tool and do not risk burning your scalp or ears when styling hard to reach spots. The straightener also comes with its travel pouch that doubles as a heat-protection pad.
