Extra long curling irons and speed-dry sprays: the tools that’ll make styling long hair quicker and easier

Styling long hair isn’t quite like coiffing any other kind; you need a special skill-set including an ambidextrous control of hot curling wands, and impressively wide-ranging reach (double jointed elbows might help, too).

Those adept at styling their own long hair truly are masters of an art. Not to mention patient. Sub-30-minute blowdrys are a rare occurrence.

But if all this is ringing a little too true for you, or if a power topknot has been your signature hairstyle for a little too long now, take heart. We’ve got good news.

From curling irons with extra long barrels to speed dry sprays and wrap-around bungees, the hair industry has heard your prayers, and answered with a whole host of tools and products that’ll cut styling time in half, and make the process a darn sight easier too.

Get excited, here’s the ultimate hair kit for everyone with long hair.
