Travel Essentials: Flat Iron

A flat iron is one of the best multipurpose tools you can take on your travels. Not only is it a cover all hair tool, ideal for straightening OR curling your hair, but it can also serve as a clothes iron, in a pinch.


If you don’t know how to curl your hair with a straightener, make sure you brush up. It is super easy and eliminates an additional bulky, heavy curler in your bag. I am pretty hopeless when it comes to my hair and I have figured this method out, so I promise you can too! Here are some videos demonstrating how it is done:

I have found a basic flat iron to be an essential multipurpose tool on the road. Not only can it help streamline your backing, but it is one of the least bulky items you will need and can easily slip in next to the rest of your essentials.
