5 Best Travel Hair Straighteners: The Ultimate Guide


Spanish singer Shaila Durcal presents new Braun Satin-Hair 5 on November 25, 2010 in Madrid, Spain.

There’s nothing worse than a bad hair day in vacation photos, but travel hair straighteners and other hair essentials can be bulky to bring along. Some don’t even work in other countries.

When looking for a travel hair straightener there are a few things to keep in mind: you want something dual voltage, so that you can use it in any country without frying the device or shutting off the power. You want something compact, and you want something that works as well as your everyday option at home.

These five travel hair straighteners fit those criteria, plus have a few other features. Maybe you want something that also curls your hair, or you just need a low budget option to supplement your at home routine.

Whatever your hair or travel style, one of these travel hair straighteners is probably right for you:

What are the best travel hair straighteners?

1. 2-In-1 Dual Voltage Straightener – $25.99

Pros: Cons:
  • Dual Voltage
  • Straightens and curls
  • Heats up quickly
  • Longer than others
  • Only one temperature

This two-in-one travel straightener has both a flat iron and a curling iron feature. Just press a button to switch modes. Most importantly, it’s dual voltage and can handle 110-240 volts, so you can use it anywhere in the world and not have to worry about blowing a fuse or breaking the iron.

The iron has one temperature–375 degrees–and it heats up quickly. It comes with a heat resistant carrying case in leopard print.

Users liked that it has both a curling and flat iron feature, and that it heats up quickly. They loved the dual voltage. The only downside is that it’s 11 inches long, which is larger than other travel hair straighteners.

2. Lovani Travel Straightener – $14.97

Pros: Cons:
  • Heats up quickly
  • Very small
  • Straightens and curls
  • Dual voltage
  • Good customer service
  • Some users found it didn’t get hot enough

At only seven inches long with a half-inch heated plate, this travel straightener is one of the smallest out there. But don’t let size fool you. The ceramic heating plates get hot within 30 seconds, and gets up to 430 degrees.

The heating panel adjusts to your hair thickness for the best results, and it has a two-in-one straightening/curling iron feature. The travel straightener has a 100-240 worldwide voltage, so you can use it anywhere as long as you have an adapter. It comes with a heat resistant travel bag.

Users with short hair found it was the perfect size, while those with longer hair thought it was useful for travel, but too small for everyday use. “It’s great for getting the shortest strands that are normally hard to get to,” one user said. Another said it was the perfect size for her carry-on, and worked well on her thick, curly hair.

Pros: Cons:
  • Affordable
  • Delivers smooth style
  • Dual voltage
  • Compact
  • Only flat iron, no curling iron
  • Cannot adjust temperature

This travel straightener is professional level, but budget priced. It delivers professional smoothing capabilities and ultra sleek hair thanks to tourmaline plates that never stick or pull your hair.

The temperature ranges from 365 to 410 degrees and the travel straightener comes with a heat-resistant glove to help with styling. The mini iron works well on long hair, but is also great for short strands.

It’s 7.8 inches long, making it compact and easy to travel with. Users loved it for trips and to keep in their gym bag. It’s dual voltage from 100 to 240 volts, so you just need an adapter to use it in other countries. The only downside is that unlike two-in-one options, it does not have a curling iron feature.
