T3 Bespoke Labs Medium Duality Iron straightens and curls hair 25% faster than the previous Bespoke flatirons—in only a single pass—without compromising salon professional results. T3’s patented Tourmaline technology ensures the heat of the iron won’t damage your precious locks by sealing in the cuticle and locking in your hair’s own natural moisture, so hair is left well-conditioned and healthy.

With a temperature control of up to 450 °F max, it has the highest setting available in a flatiron for faster, longer-lasting drying and straightening—even on the curliest hair types. Ribbed edges allow for creating beachy waves, sexy curls, or girly flips and bends in hair. This is the only professional iron on the market that will allow you to work with this high of heat and still be able to multitask—giving you the option of drying, straightening, curling, creating waves, and flipping or feathering hair in a single pass.

Whether you’re going overseas, on business, or vacation, because the 2009 version is dual-voltage you’ll never have to leave home without your T3! Just bring along a plug adapter!

There are different hair brushes to style your hair in different ways. Many of us have no knowledge about the hair brush and regret why we cannot get the same hairstyle like others or why we cannot maintain the hairstyle.

Paddle hair brush
Paddle brushes are flat and wide. They help in brushing long hair and for styling them. Brushing your hair with paddle brush also gives you a slight scalp massage. These brushes are used to style layers, as they do not add volume to layers.

Cushion Style
This type of brush is best suited for medium-length hair, which is generally smooth and straight. This brush gives you a massage effect. Styles, which are made out of this brush, are box shaped bob, the classic graduated cut and a disconnected outline.

Sculpting Brushes
This kind of brush is best suited for backcombing and it adds volume to short and textured styles. Such brushes are generally used for short cuts, round layers and textured outlines.

Thermal Round Brush
Thermal round brushes are available in different sizes such as jumbo sized, large medium and small. Small round brush acts as a roller to get curls on your hair when used with the heat of a blow dryer. Large round brush smoothen your hair. The length of your hair decides which type of brush to be used so that it can give a different style to your hair.

What Are the Best Beauty Tools?

As we said, beauty experts say this is one area where you don`t want to skimp. From personal experience, I would have to agree. Having used both mediocre beauty application products and the more expensive version of the same tools, I noticed quite a difference in the finished product with the more expensive version. Although at the time I thought it silly to spend such an amount on something which seemed sort of trivial in the beauty process as a whole and even felt somewhat guilty afterward, it was well worth it. When shopping for beauty tools, you will notice a marked difference in the feel and look of the more expensive and higher quality tools. The best brushes are made with animal hair and companies utilize several types ranging from squirrel, badger, and even pony hair. Choose one that feels good for you.


How To Get The Most Out Of Your Investment: Keeping It Clean

So you`ve made the investment of purchasing the high quality beauty tools, now how do you make them last? Keeping your beauty tools clean is important to the life of the tool as well as the quality of the application of your beauty products. You should be cleaning your make-up brushes at least once a week, and any brush that is used on or near the eye-area, should be cleaned daily. Continually using dirty brushes not only wears on the life of your brush, but on the life of your make-up. Since oils and bacteria are picked up from your skin on the brush, it is important to not transfer them into the make-up itself, thereby further contributing to contamination, changing the appearance and color of your make-up, and wearing on the bristles of your brush.


So what`s the best way to wash make-up brushes and applicators? Choosing the appropriate soap is important. Use a gentle antibacterial soap, not something too harsh. Using warm water, rub your fingers gently through the bristles with the soap, being careful not to reverse the directions of the bristles, causing them to break. Repeat this process until the water runs clear. With sponges, the process is much the same.


A Word About Sharing and Other Products

Since all beauty products have the potential to carry bacteria, it`s best to wash even tools like brushes, picks, combs, and irons. It`s a good idea to make washing your beauty products a weekly ritual. As far as sharing beauty tools, especially products that apply to the eye area where bacteria collect, sharing products equals sharing bacteria, so stick to your own make-up kit.
