New hair tools for Christmas anyone ?

Who needs a new hair dryer, flat iron, curling iron, etc ? I know I do !!  Feel free to pass this blog post on to husbands, family members etc. I am a bit of a hair tool snob ( I know no big surprise to some ), but I thought it would be fun to share the brands that i like and don't like. 

So in middle of my Christmas shopping tonight I stopped at Ulta Beauty Supply to see what they offered. I was not impressed with the over stock of conair, revlon and chi tools. In my opinion Chi is overated and overpriced. Ps. no one needs a $ 200 flat iron or hair dryer. So I took snap shots of my favorites from each category. Here ya go:

Favorite Curling Iron of all time. Hot Tools 1 1/4 inch

Second favorite is the T3 flat iron. The white one on the right is my fav, however I'm sure the one on the left is just fine.

Olivia Garden " Ceramic + ion " round brushes are incredible. They are smooth yet don't slip. I've been using them at home and in the salon for years.
