Like most busy mums I don’t often get to visit the hairdresser, maybe once per 6 months if I am lucky. When I do go to the hairdresser I always really enjoy it, I love those few hours of quiet pampering and walking away feeling refreshed and full of energy. Although I adore the ‘fresh-from-the-salon’ look it usually leaves me feeling a little blue, after all recreating that look at home is just not possible. To be really honest at times I have even skipped the salon blowdry because of this, choosing the practical option of a simple hairtie because that’s what I do at home too.

I find it very intrigueing watching hairdressers work their magic with a dryer and a round brush. They make it look so easy but surely that’s not something ordinary people can do at home? Luckily there is new hope for amateurs like me in the shape of the Big Styles 2-in-1 ($103.95) by Remington. This clever new gadget replaces the need for a separate blowdryer and a brush (hence the name 2-in-1), saving you both money and space. Sounds pretty good if you ask me!

The Big Styles 2-in-1 lets you create salon style volume and waves while you dry, perfect for busy mummies! Thanks to the special rotating brush you don’t even have to turn the brush anymore making this design much gentler on your wrist than the traditional alternative. To guarantee a smooth result from root to tip the styler uses ceramic tourmaline ionic technology and you can ‘set’ your gorgeous locks with a quick cool shot.

I had the chance to take this great new product for a test spin and I can guarantee you that is much easier to use than it looks. The brush head clicks on and pops off easily and the brush only rotates when you press (and hold) the button, so you won’t find yourself panicking while the hair winds up tighter and tighter. The brush rotates two ways allowing you to create a smooth bob or a cheeky flick outside, depending on your mood. The Big Styles 2-in-1 comes with two different sized brushes to help you create the look of your dreams.

I will admit that the Big Styles 2-in-1 made me feel a bit like a professional, while listening to the sound of the blow dryer I gently pulled each lock down resisting the roll of the brush just like I watched the hairdresser do it many times. Even with longer hair like mine it was surprisingly quick (damp hair works best) and although maybe not magazine worthy I was very happy with the end result, even hip daddy commented on it! If my husband compliments me on my hair I think we can safely say it’s a winner.
