Going on vacation is fun, packing for vacation, not so much. We typically pack around our outfits, which means that our beauty tools and products get tucked in wherever there’s unused space. While smaller products get placed in our carry-in and sometimes into our personal item purse, tools like straightening and curling irons tend to go in the main luggage.

We love our big tools, but it’s a lot more economical to get a travel-sized version to save on check-in bag costs and save on space. Luckily, many professional quality mini-tools now exist to help frequent travelers and stylists alike. Check out our round-up of some of the top-rated styling tools on the market today.
