5 mini-but-mighty straighteners for every hair type
Content Producer / October 24 2023
Okay, so let's be real for a moment. We all know that sacrificing our beauty must-haves is simply not an option, even when we're jetting off on an epic adventure.
But can we talk about the struggle of lugging around hefty hair tools like hair straighteners? As amazing as they are (and they're pretty darn amazing, just to be clear), they're often heavy, bulky and just not travel-friendly.
Lucky for us, that's where mini hair straighteners come in. These babies are tiny wonders that deliver the same pin-straight results without weighing you down. And while they may be small in size, they pack a serious punch when it comes to heat.
So, without further ado, here are the best mini hair straighteners that'll keep you looking fierce.
ghd mini hair straightener
When you think of hair straighteners, ghd's probably the first brand that comes to mind. That's because ghd is known for its timeless, high-quality hair tools that deliver the goods every single time. The ghd mini straightener is no different, either. Featuring advanced ceramic heat technology for even heat distribution and working at the optimum hair styling temperature of 185 degrees Celsius, it provides kind-to-hair styling, as well as salon-smooth results.

CLOUD NINE The Mirco Iron
Precision is what it’s all about with CLOUD NINE's The Micro Iron.

It also heats to 150 degrees Celsius, has a swivel cord and goes into hibernation mode when not used in 30 minutes. Win, win, win.

BaByliss Pro Mini Straightener
Be blown away by the power and performance of this small-but-mighty tool. The BaBylissPRO Mini produces exactly the same results as a regular-sized straightener, just in a mini size. But there's more: the ultra narrow plates allow you to straighten closer to the scalp and create super-tight curls.
