There are hair tools, and there are hair tools that are really unique, fun to use, and highly effective.
If you’re seeking new hair tools, these two hair tools by Amika fit the description above.
We are truly excited about Amika!
Movos Wireless Styler: Free Yourself From Wires & Take Your Styler, Anywhere
Standing upright in its charging station, the Movos Wireless Styler (srp. $150) looks like a sculpture, or perhaps a rocket waiting to be launched.
This beautiful monolith of matte black with minimalist adornments of rose gold is something more, and very special It is a wireless hair styler — a flat iron can be charged in a holder and then used anywhere you want.
Depending upon the heat setting you choose, you can get 15-30 minutes of use, thanks to a Samsung, lithium-ion 2200mah battery,
Why We Love This:
The 100% titanium rose gold floating plates look so elegant, but they aren’t simply pretty. They deliver an ultra-smooth glide.
The slim, modern, easy to grip handle made of heat-resistant polycarbonate material feels cool in your hand. But since it is cordless, it also isn’t bulky when you want to store it, even though it is full sized.
The Movos Cordless Styler has Titanium that conducts heat effectively and let you often straighten your hair in one, smooth, easy pass through your hair. Thanks to t has energy efficient MCH Ceramic Heaters from 200ºF to 400ºF (93ºC to 204ºC) plus far-infrared heat that instantly penetrates the cortex of the hair cuticle, heating it from the inside out. This means you can style your hair, often in one quick pass, reducing the risk of heat damage.
There is also an auto-shutoff feature after an hour, for those who don’t want to waste power or potentially damage furniture surfaces. .
The Best Thing for Travelers:
But we think the best “bell & whistle” on this luxury styler is the is Dual Voltage 110–240 V for international travel. Although there are plenty of high end hair stylers, we are amazed how few work internationally. And this oe also has a lock for docking and for travel. We won’t be are dual voltage. We don’t travel without one!
The Bottom Line:
There is something liberating about a cordless tool. It won’t weigh you down or hamper your movements. You can charge the Movos and pop it into your tote, or even a large handbag, without cords to get tangled in, add bulk and having to find an outlet to use the styler.
If you want to style or touch up on the go, you can do this anywhere, even in a car. Imagine the time you can use for something else if you flat iron in that Uber Car!
Most importantly, it really makes hair smooth, soft, and shiny and good for all hair types for frizz free hair. The curved ends let you add a curve into your hair so it doesn’t just hang stick straight unless you want that look.
The only thing missing is a heat sleeve in case you need to get going in a hurry (buy one).
The Polished Perfection Straightening Brush from Amika is Another Cool Tool
Another cool straightening tool from Amika is their Polished Perfection Straightening Brush (Srp. $120). It blends the ease of a brush with the styling power of a flat iron, smoothing hair in a single pass.
The Amika Polished Perfection Straightening Brush has a double ion generator, delivering millions of negative ions for shiny, smooth results (the Double Negative Ion Technology has the maximum in negative ions for shiny, smooth, frizz and static-free results).
This is not an ordinary hair brush, however. The bristles are ceramic with nylon “cool tips” that emit far-infrared heat that penetrate the cortex of the hair cuticle, heating it from the inside out.
This helps you style faster, reducing the risk of damage.
Like the Amika Wireless Styler above, this one also ha an LCD Digital Interface to monitor heat from 250 to 450ºF (232ºC and one-hour auto shutoff. There is also a Temperature Lock for uniform temperature control.
Easy to Use
this is a styler as easy to use as a hairbrush. A 9 foot 360° swivel cord made of heat-proof, up to 450ºF (232ºC), fabric and a professional hook makes it easier to move this over your hair from any angle.
There is also a hook to hang it for storage.
Why We Like This!
If you are brushing your hair and then using a flat iron, why not do two things at once?
The Polished Perfection Straightening Brush zipped through all our disheveled and frizzy hair issues mostly in one pass (we had to repeat the process for a few, stubborn pieces).
We were able to smooth and straighten out the frizz and kinks in an entire head of hair within a couple of minutes,
The Bottom Line:
We see this as a speciality item, It’s not a hair dryer, or a simple brush (the bristles aren’t that long) so you can’t replace all your hair tools with this one thing, But it is really great when you’re in a hurry and had you don’t really have time to methodically straighten and style your hair.
It is also great for a touch up to tame a few frizzy or really curly areas.
This is a fun tool to add to your hair styling tools collection.
Amika began in 2007, in Brooklyn, testing out tools at fashion weeks and editorial shoots. We love the idea that Amika takes hair tools a step further, delivering high quality, thoughtfully designed products!
