I don't own a hair dryer, curling iron, or any other such products — but I know many people do, and storage can be a challenge. So let's look at some of the more interesting products designed for storing these hair care items. And let's start with countertop caddies, like the StyleAway, shown above, which comes in black or ivory. It's designed to hold most heated appliances, and it will hang over a towel rack as well as sitting on a counter.
Kangaroom has a hair styling station in rattan, with ceramic interior liners.
PBTeen has a hair accessories organizer made of MDF; it has a lacquer finish.
For yet another look, there's the Polder Style Station, made of stainless steel mesh and plastic. There's a "high heat silicon inner base pad" to "allow hot items to safely cool when stored." This one, like the StyleAway, can also hang from a towel bar. The Polder Styling Station is a smaller version of this product.
And then there's the Hair Doozy - a countertop product that comes with an optional canvas carrying pack.
Wall-mounted products are another way to go. The most interesting one I found is the hair care caddy from Ironworks; there are six designs available.
The appliance holders from Salon Made can be used on a countertop or they can be wall-mounted.
And then there are the wall-mounted cabinets, like the Style and Go Hair Care Valet. It seems to be sold out at the minute, but you can sign up for the waiting list. It's sold through HSN.
Another such product, with a different look, is the HairCare Hideaway.
Finally, there are the products from Pojjo, sold on its site, through Home Depot, and through Amazon.com — and brought to my attention by Debbie Wolfe. There's the wall-mounted holder, available in a number of finishes.
But the company also makes this vanity valet pullout — and a number of other interesting options for a vanity.
