I don’t know how many house fires each year arise from discarded hair straighteners but there are plenty of stories. Which suggests there are quite a few? There are, I should think, plenty of instances where children have suffered burns – not to mention a few adults too?
So a storage solution for hair straighteners isn’t just going to keep your home tidy, it’s going to be a lot safer too. These are a few solutions on the market, many of which also provide a combined storage solution for hair dryers. Which, although not so dangerous, are also a bit of a nuisance.
Polder Style Station – this combined unit has sections for a hair dryer, straighteners and a hair brush or curling tongs. There is space in the back for cables but it isn’t large enough to be any real use. This aside, it’s a practical solution which works quite well. £22.99 from amazon.co.uk
Mini Polder Style Station – this new mini version has 2 compartments, one for a hair dryer and the other for curlers or straighteners. Again, this unit can be used on a worktop or fixed to the wall. Measures: W20 x D16 x H22 cm. £11.50 from amazon.co.uk
Wenko Milano – this wall-mounted attachment keeps your hair dryer and straighteners close to hand. The chromed metal construction is solid, heat proof and looks pretty good too. £19.99 from amazon.co.uk
InterDesign Rain Hair Dryer and Starighteners Holder – combines the benefit of the chromed metal holders with the practicality of a clear plastic base. £20.99 from amazon.co.uk
Dual Purpose Stand – this table top stand will suit a pair of straighteners or a hair dryer. The heat-resistant base is quite heavy and has a non-slip rubberized coating. So it’s quite secure. £9.87 from amazon.co.uk
Hot Sleeve – this heat-resistant sleeve will stand on a tabletop or hang from a drawer edge to keep your straighteners safe and secure. A neat travel accessory too. £9.99 from amazon.co.uk
Style and Store Hairdryer and Tongs Storage Unit – a 2-in-one solution with a silicone sleeve for your straighteners and a holder for your dryer. W24.5 × D13 × H17 cm. £15.08 from amazon.co.uk
