Before styling hair, apply a heat protective serum like amika Obliphica Hair Treatment, which is packed with vitamins and nutrients and will smooth frizzes and keep hair hydrated.

Birchbox Breakdown

When you’re gearing up for a trip, packing your bags can quickly turn into survival of the smallest (especially with regard to bulky beauty tools). Save space with amika’s colorful mini styler, which is about half the size of the brand’s classic iron and perfect for travel. It heats up in just 10 seconds, and the floating plates avoid any uncomfortable tugs on your tresses. Plus, the pretty peacock pattern is a Birchbox exclusive you won’t find anywhere else!

How to Use

Spray clean hair with a heat-protective mist and blow dry. Plug in the styler, and wait 10 seconds. Place a one-inch section of hair in between the plates, and glide the tool from root to tip in one fluid motion. Repeat as necessary to achieve desired straightness.
