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. (available 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. (available 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. (available from amazon.co.uk)
InterDesign Rain Hair Dryer and Straighteners Holder – combines the benefit of the chromed metal holders with the practicality of a clear plastic base. (available 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. (available 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. (available from amazon.co.uk)
