I would like to buy a hot air styler to curl my hair under like my hairdresser does it. Is the babyliss big hair worth the money or is there something similar on the market that's as good for less money?
It's not worth it IMO. Just a really poor heat and pressure for something that's supposed to dry your hair. I guess you're supposed to almost dry your hair with a regular hair dryer before finishing it off with the big hair thing. Mines gathering dust, if you're in the birmingham/solihull area we could do a deal!
It's a great piece of kit. I often wash my hair at night and let it dry naturally, then give it two mins with the Big Hair in the morning. Gets my fringe to do the proper side slanty thing, and tucks the rest of the hair under and makes it a bit swingy. I haven't tried to emulate a salon finish with it though.
I love it, I have a chin length graduated bob type style and it makes it lovely and bouncy. My hair always looks the same when on a night out as it's too short to do anything with but this makes it look great and a bit different from usual
It's exactly the same as using a hairdryer and a bristle brush. I have a wide diameter bristle brush and if I blow dry my hair with the brush up or away from my head, turning as I blow it, I get the big bouncy look which lasts for days.
