Updated: 

Wave goodbye to frizzy hair and say hello to super-sleek locks. Whether you want cascading curls, beachy waves or poker-straight tresses, we've rounded up the best hair straighteners on the market.

1. Cloud Nine Original Iron Hair Straightener

GHD dominated the market for years until Cloud Nine came along. The plates (which come in standard-size and wide) glide through the hair effortlessly with no pull or drag, leaving locks sleek, glossy and healthy-looking. Lightweight and easy to handle, the straighteners have six different temperature options (though we found the lowest setting worked just fine) and take less than 30 seconds to heat up.

2. T3 X SinglePass Straightener

If you have very long, thick or curly hair, T3 X SinglePass Straighteners are a great choice. They heat up in just six seconds and have extra-wide plates that can curl, flick and straighten even the most unruly hair. The only downside is that they take a while to cool down, and some reviewers found that they didn't glide through the hair very smoothly.

3. Remington S9500 Pearl Hair Straightener


Good Housekeeping Magazine recently gave the Remington S9500 Pearl hair straighteners their highest score (93/100) – beating other straighteners that cost twice the price. Thanks to their ceramic-coated plates, they glide through the hair easily and reach roots well. Reviewers also liked their safety lock feature, 10 different temperature controls and extra accessories.

4. GHD IV Styler Hair Straightener


The original and still one of the best, GHDs have dominated the market for years. Their ceramic plates are a "one-stroke-wonder", delivering optimum heat and gliding through locks effortlessly. They take just 20 seconds to heat up, are easy to use, and produce fantastic results every time.

5. Toni & Guy Style Fix Straightener

If you want straighteners that are small enough to fit in your handbag but will still do a great job, Toni & Guy has the answer. Their Style Fix Straighteners are compact, light-weight and won't break the bank. While they work great on short to medium-length hair, they aren't so good for very long or thick hair due to their slightly smaller-sized plates.
