What electrical hair tools do I need?
The electrical hair styling tools you need are different from person to person! It first depends on what type of hair you have followed by the kind of style you desire. The most crucial electrical hair tool that everyone should have is a good quality blow dryer. A good blow dryer will help maintain your hairs natural shine and give you a styled look with little effort.
At Hairhouse, you’ll find a selection of blow dryers that are a great starting point for adding electrical hair tools to your daily routine.

What is the best styling tool for short hair?
When choosing a styling tool for short hair, you want to select an electrical hair tool with a smaller plat for barrel size, making it easier to manage! With Hairhouse’s amazing selection of salon-quality styling hair tools, you can get the same look effortless look you walk out of the salon with. The best styling tool for short hair is the Cloud Nine Micro. Its design is for short hair or fringes, and at just six inches in length, it’s handy for travelling.
With curling irons, a smaller and tighter barrel will give you tighter ringlets. A large and wider barrel will provide you with soft voluptuous beach waves. A larger barrel can be harder to manage for those who have short hair, so your best to opt for a mid-size barrel. To be sure you’re picking the perfect tool for your hair length, chat with one of our experts at your local Hairhouse store or online.
How long do hair styling tools last?
Your hairstyling tools’ lifetime depends on the brand and model, but on average, you can likely get between 500-1000 hours. Most of Hairhouse’s products come with a 2-year warranty. The terms and conditions of the warranty depend on the brand.
Like anything, you should always take your hair styling tools to get the most out of them! You can do this by making sure they stay in a safe place, and you clean them regularly. You should also unplug them once you finish or plan on leaving them unattended to reduce the use hours.
How to use an electrical hairbrush?
Gone are the days of brushing your hair and then styling! With an electrical hairbrush, you can create smooth and shiny hair with a simple brush stroke. Whether your hair is curly or wavy, Hairhouse has a great selection of heated brushes including hot-air brushes and flat paddle hair straightening brushes.
Depending on the type of electrical hairbrush, the steps are relatively similar. When using an electrical hairbrush, follow our step-by-step guide:
1. The first step is making sure you give it time to heat up before you use it. Heated hairbrushes are more useful when they’re hot, especially if you have thick or curly hair. So save yourself the headache and use those heat settings to their fullest potential.
2. Once your electric hairbrush has heated up, you want to section your hair before you start brushing. Similar to a straightening iron, depending on your hair’s thickness, the hair tool works better working on smaller pieces than all at once.
3. Depending on the tool, you’ll want to make sure your hair is dry before starting. After you’ve applied a thermal spray or heat protection cream, you want to brush from the root to the tip. To keep the volume and bounce, try and go slowly.
4. Once you’ve finished styling your hair with your heated brush, make sure you leave it on a heatproof mat and unplugged in a safe place. Cleaning your heated brush will depend on the specific brand and tool.
