Hot airstyler for short hair

I have a jaw length inverted bob and would like to get away from using straighteners on it every day. Babyliss big hair and Revlon one step are both too big for my short hair. Can anyone recommend something to dry and style a smooth sleek bob? Am very cack handed so can't manage a brush and dryer. Usual approach is to blast hair dry and then run straighteners through to make it look presentable, butwouldliketo cut down on straightner use but can't bear a frizzy do!

Don't know if it's any good but Lidl have one in their middle aisle from 23rd, for £11.99.

I'm going to try and get one to see if I get on with hot air stylers rather than spend £££.

Hopeful bump for the evening crowd

It sounds like you might want a straightening brush. Look up Dafni brush and its alternatives.

I've just had my hair cut into a cross between a pixie and a Bob and my Babylis Big Hair was too big. However, I discovered they do a petite version for hair up to jaw length - I got it and it works brilliantly. Perfect for shorter hair styling.

I second the Babyliss one for shorter hair, works a treat on my jaw length hair.

I still use the Big Hair for my bob and it seems to be ok, but my hair is very thick so maybe it is just mostly working at the top. Anyway the petite one sounds good! I might look into it too.

Thanks for all of the recommendations for the big hair petite. Only used it once so far and need to work on my technique, but managed to get the bestblow dry I've ever given myself. Some bits still needed a quick run over with the straighteners but definitely less heat needed. Hopefully practice will make perfect

Sorry to say this as it's £££ but I have the Dyson Airwrap and I thought I would use it mostly for curls but it is fab as a brush too.

The Babyliss Big Hair is a really cost effective styler as it removes frizz , adds body and cone in a small size . I have the larger version and it really works after you get the technique. I’m lucky enough to have an Airwrap on permanent loan but could never justify the expense of it for use as a brush alone .
