Hershesons Hair Accessories & Styling Tools

I am sure you guys have heard of Hershesons before. They have dominated runway fashion since the 90's and were the pioneers of the blow dry bar and professional straightening iron since then, when there were hardly any good ones around. They still adorn the beauty aisles of Harvey Nichols and Selfridges and have been a celebrity, fashion press and models favourite since years.

In particular the Hair accessories from Hershesons are fabulous and have reached cult-favourite status in the fashion industry. I am forever tired of my GHD not working due to cord problems. If you've had no luck with GHD's on curly, wavy or thick hair, I've heard quite a few people singing praises about the Hershesons one which is apparently more powerful and of 'industrial strength' compared to the cult favourite competitor.

They also have a clipless waving wand with a 2.5cm barrel. I love how it's different from the conical waving wands we get these days. I mean don't get me wrong, I do love my Babyliss conical wand but sometimes the curls are so tight and 'proper' that it looks like I am going to the prom. For everyday, messy and effortless loose curls, a simple tong like this should do wonders especially for coloured hair where it's great to add in some dimension and movement.

Apparently they claim it's good enough to replicate tresses like the Kate Middleton! I can totally see how if you'd blow dry your hair first and curl just a few thick sections of the hair with this medium barrelled tong, the effect would be the same dreamy one that the Duchess of Cambridge flaunts. If you're not comfortable using the clip less tong, Hershesons also do one with a clip for those who have slightly more advanced hair styling skills and can manoeuvre the tool like a pro.

Of course their hair tools are amazing no doubt but I have my eyes glued to their clip in extensions. Albeit not a new concept, the way they have styled it on their models just looks so great and natural. I love the fishtail plait and the clip in pastel hair pieces and highlights in particular. Both of them look so fashion forward and are available in a variety of colours. If you cannot make the commitment to manage long hair or add in coloured streaks, this is a great way to experiment especially for occasions. I have always wanted to try out a fishtail plait for weddings and will surely have a go with something like this next time.

Have you tried out hair straighteners other than GHD? Let me know if you've found any better ones out there. Also, what's your take on clip in hair extensions - would you wear a fishtail plait?
