With so much competition around every corner, as a salon owner, you have to figure out ways for your services to stand out among the rest.

When you use the best of the best, you’ll earn your clients’ trust so that they keep coming back and start recommending you to their friends.
So, what are some of the best hairstylist tools on the market? We’ve rounded up a few favorites that you—and your clients—are sure to love.
Keep reading for the full scoop.
When it comes to the best blow dryer for styling, it’s hard to beat the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer.
If you have clients that are concerned about heat damage to their hair, they’ll love that Dyson designed this tool to protect hair from extreme heat.
But, have no fear. That doesn’t mean you’ll be stuck drying hair for longer. It claims to dry six times faster than the average blow dryer while increasing smoothness by 75% and decreasing frizz by 61%.
While the device has a 4.8/5 rating from its users, it does come with a hefty price tag of $400. However, with the time it could save you during each appointment, it could pay for itself quickly.
One thing that sets the GHD Curve® Creative curl wand apart from the competition is that it has a maximum temperature of 365°F.
GHD selected this temperature after doing tests to determine how to get the perfect curl with the minimum amount of heat damage.
As a result, they’ve created a wand that maintains heat through the whole barrel and adapts to the correct styling temperature based on the section of hair you’re curling.
The result is beautiful, bouncing curls your clients will love.
The wand is $200 and comes equipped with automatic sleep mode after 30 minutes and a long cord so you can use it in any space.
To give your clients sleek, envy-inducing locks, look no further than the T3 Lucea flat iron.
With 9 different heat settings, you can use the device on any hair type for smooth, frizz-free results.
This straightener feels straight out of the future, as it includes a smart microchip to monitor heat fluctuations so it can adjust heat distribution through the plates for quick styling.
The T3 Lucea also features longer plates to cover a wider surface of the hair and an innovative edge so it can be used for curls or waves as well. This flat iron runs for $150.
Mason Pearson brushes for styling are iconic for a reason. These brushes include a small hole at the tip of the brush so air can flow in. This results in a soft cushion that your clients will appreciate.
Additionally, the handle is designed to fit comfortably in your hand, so you can face a full day of work with ease.
The brushes include boar bristles which are great both for shiny, smooth hair, and the longevity of the brush.
Mason Pearson brushes come in a variety of colors and styles including large, medium, handy, pocket, and military.
Choosing the right chair for your salon is critical for making sure your clients are comfortable. After all, with coloring and styling, the average hair appointment can last more than 3 hours.
Your clients will love the LCL PRO-8383 XL Contemporary Styling Chair. With a 400-pound weight capacity and an adjustable height, from 21″ to 27″, it can accommodate any client comfortably.
It also comes equipped with a 2-cushion backrest, padded armrests, and a wide seat for extra comfort.
The chair retails at $400, but can sometimes be found on sale.
For many people, one of the best parts about visiting a salon is the luxurious feeling of getting your hair washed by a professional.
If you use a high-quality shampoo, your clients’ hair will look great, and you also have the opportunity to upsell them to take home a bottle of shampoo for themselves.
The Malin+Goetz Moisturizing Shampoo is a fan favorite because it can help revitalize dry and processed hair. This sulfate-free solution uses amino acids to nourish and cleanse hair.
With its neroli and basil scent, your clients are sure to fall in love with the way it transforms their hair.
Sometimes, classics are classics for a reason. The Fromm Venture 5.75″, hair cutting shears are a tried and true scissor that stylists love.
They feature a beveled blade that stays sharp so they last a long time and is resistant to nicks. Plus, the edge is micro-serrated, so you don’t have to worry about them pushing forward as you cut.
These shears are only $20 and should be perfect for all of your cutting needs.
Finally, perhaps the most important tool of all is not one that you use on your customers. Rather, it’s one that will make your life easier and help you run a more successful salon business.
