About

Cut your hair styling time in half with The Better Styler

The Better Styler is a patented design that combines the power of a blow dryer and the straightening muscle of a flat iron into one styling tool.

Many women complain that getting the perfect blow out at the salon can be costly and they don’t last. Because of this, many cosmetic companies are now touting the benefits of using oil absorbing dry shampoos to make that expensive blowout last longer. What you end up with is crunchy roots that look dirty.

Women also complain that getting a sleek, shiny blow out at home is nearly impossible. It is difficult to hold a brush and a hair dryer at the same time. Your arms get tired and before you know it, you are pulling your hair into ponytail, a sign of blow out defeat.

Not to mention, the many women who blow dry their hair only to be left with a frizzy mess that has to be flat ironed. If you have a lot of hair, styling time can take up to two hours. Who has time for that?

We can do better Ladies!

The Better Styler has two circular heads with two circular fans that will give double the drying power. As you clamp down on your wet strands, air will flow from the top of the tool and the bottom of the tool simultaneously.

The tool also has ceramic plates and a removable comb option that will smooth and straighten the hair as you glide the iron through your tresses. There is not a brush or comb blow dryer attachment out there that can match the smoothing power of two ceramic plates, pressing your hair. Brushes and combs often leave women with coarser hair types with frizzy hair.

The Better Styler is also healthier. This one step tool exposes the hair shaft to less heat because it cuts styling time in half. No more blasting your hair with a blow dryer followed by frying your hair with a flat iron.  I know this tool will change the future of hair care forever.  Please join my mission to help women win the battle for beautiful, healthy hair!

The U.S. patent office has granted me the design patent and I have also filed for the utility patent.  Right now, I am in the research and development phase.  The prototype you are seeing in the below video is from my manufacturer in China.  This is just phase one.

As you can see, the air flow needs to be improved. I have a team of engineers here in the United States that are ready to begin phase two, but I need funding.  Phase two will include improving airflow with a simple redesign of the current heating element.  Once we complete that, we should be ready for mass production!  That is very exciting.  If you are excited about this product, please donate.  I want you to know I appreciate your help more than you can ever know.   

I am just a girl who is tired of spending hours doing my hair.  I am also a busy mom to a little boy, whom I love more than anything. I don't have time to spend hours on my hair so improving my hair routine has become a mission and a passion for me.  I want to help other women who would also like to spend more time on things that really matter. I have dedicated three years and more than $20,000 of my own money on this project.  Let's make it happen!

Risks and challenges

The potential risk for this product is possible delays in manufacturing. We are committed to making sure our supporters get a product that delivers on its promises. We will continually update you on any challenges during the final manufacturing phase and will do our best to launch a quality hair styling tool in a timely manner. I also have been in talks with U.S. hair industry giants who say they will work me once I have finished the research and development phase. I do have other options if my manufacture is delayed. Also, other manufacturers are competing to get a deal with me to work on this product.
