If you struggle blowdrying effectively with a brush, then the brush attachment on the Big Style is an absolute dream. It heats up to dry and style hair from wet (something I was dubious about,) and leaves your locks bouncy and shiny. I have mid-length hair that has a tendency to frizz and curl, but this styler helped me to achieve volume without the dreaded 'halo' of frizz on my crown. The barrel allows you to dry and style simultaneously, curling the ends and smoothing the finish without the need for a GVNQ in hair styling. Although it does take a little longer than normal drying, this is great for those days when you want to look a little more polished and and have a few extra minutes to do so.
Also within the Big Style pack are 15 self-grip rollers in three sizes - small, medium and large - so you can achieve the result you want. These can either be applied by hand, or via the Big Style styler; a separate attachment is added to hold the rollers, you heat them for a few seconds and then release into the hair. They really do grip onto hair exactly where you need them to, leaving you to continue to add rollers to the remainder of your head and toodle on with your makeup. I tend to leave them in for around ten minutes before easily sliding them out of my hair; the result is lots of bounce, a delicate curl and a blowdry straight from the salon chair.
If you want to perfect your style and smooth out sections of hair, there's even a precision nozzle to delicately re-style small sections. All of these gadgets are housed in a large plastic case with two layers, making it easy to store the curlers in one layer and the Big Style styler in the other - no lost curlers or attachments floating around your bedroom! Although the curl does drop after a few hours if you don't add a touch of hairspray, I'm still really pleased with the overall effect and the fact I don't have to use my straighteners to achieve a smooth and styled result. This bumper pack is £44.99, which is pretty good value if you get some serious use out of it - especially if it helps to reduce the damage on your hair from endless GHD abuse!
The Remington Big Style Air Rollers are available from Boots priced £44.99 - however, they're currently on offer for £29.99!
