From bouncy blowouts to pin-straight styles, and all the curls, coils, and waves in between, finding the right hair tools to help you consistently achieve good hair days at home can be a challenge — and an investment. Thankfully for us, Nordstrom's Anniversary Sale just launched to the public today (meaning everyone, even non-Nordy Club members) can shop. If you're familiar with the sale, you know that it's one sure-fire way of finding some of the best beauty discounts you'll surface all year long, including a range of new products, sets, and exclusives that are only available for the Anniversary Sale before they revert to their original retail prices.

Additionally, there is a succession of blink-and-you'll-miss-it, one-day-only flash deals that will pop up throughout the sale. To sweeten the deal, Nordstrom also offers some notable free gifts with each purchase, and even runs a special page that lets you zero in on some past Allure Best of Beauty winners to guide your hand. 

Knowing how pricey beauty tools can be in particular, we'd suggest checking out all of the impressive savings you'll find on professional-grade stylers from top brands like T3, GHD, Drybar, and BioIonic. Whether you're in the market for a new blow-dryer, flatiron, or curling wand, or intrigued by some new do-it-all smart styler or blow-dry brush, the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale is one of the best times outside of Black Friday to shop these top-of-the-line hair tools at friendlier price tags. 

To help you find the tools worth your money, we rounded up some of the best hair tools and stylers at the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale that help you achieve salon-quality results at home. Don't be surprised if things sell out quickly (so we'd suggest taking stock of everything quickly, and not dawdling too long before the sale draws to a close on August 8 at midnight PT.)


One styling session is enough to understand why T3 has maintained its status as an award-winning hair-care favorite for over a decade — looking every bit the "luxury" part with its stylish rose gold trimmings. Add in an enticing $50 in savings for these tools and it's hard to find a reason not to treat yourself. The sale offers a range of T3's latest and greatest hits, including the brand's best-selling line of curlers and flatirons in white and gold, along with some limited-edition tools in a satin-blush shade.

T3's SinglePass Curl 1.25-inch Professional Ceramic Curling Iron heats up quickly and maintains an even temperature so you can style without the scorch. The adjustable heat settings crank all the way up to 410 degrees Fahrenheit, but you can achieve any style by sticking to a more friendly 360 degrees Fahrenheit. As the name promises, the heated ceramic barrel delivers enough heat and hold in a single pass, locking in the most polished curls. We also love the extra-long nine-foot swivel cord, which eliminates any twisting and cord tangles as you wrap and curl. 

Don't let the name fool you: The travel-friendly T3 Satin Blush Fit Compact Dryer may be small, but it's just as mighty as its full-sized peers, making it ideal for everyday use at home too. It's impressively lightweight  — weighing in at just over 14 ounces  — in a limited-edition Satin Blush color that is pretty enough to earn it prime countertop real estate. 

The souped-up dryer features IonAir technology, which infuses negative ions into the airstream to help dry hair faster, smoothing the individual hair cuticles for a smoother, glossier finish. You'll be able to see the difference (and justify the splurge) after just one speedy blow-dry session.

Drybar's best-selling hair-care products have made it easy for people like you and me to achieve salon-quality results at home, thanks to its heat protectants, smoothing hair sealants, and easy-to-use hair tools. 

This genius Drybar Double Shot Round Blow Dryer Brush Set is your secret weapon for a salon-worthy blowout without all the work. It simplifies the whole blow-dry process into a convenient one-step tool that combines the hot air of a dryer with the smoothing and volumizing effects of a round brush. 

When you add in a lineup of DryBar hair-care favorites like the Hot Toddy Heat Protectant, the Liquid Glass Shampoo and Conditioner, and the Miracle Smoothing Sealant, you've got everything you need for good hair days on demand.

It's certainly an investment, but with up to $100 off the original retail price, these high-end BioIonic powerhouse hair tools are a splurge you will thank yourself for after each and every use. 

BioIonic's 10x Pro Ultralight Speed Dryer powerful professional-grade dryer is the speedster of blow-dryers, with hybrid-like efficiency that helps dry even the thickest, longest hair in less than 10 minutes. And at nearly $100 off its retail price, this Nordstrom Sale discount is too good to pass up on if you've been eyeing one. 

A quick Google search will surface over 1,300 five-star customer reviews for the BioIonic 10x 1-inch Pro Styling Iron — which could justify the steep price point. The vibrating ceramic plates separate hair as you iron it for faster, smoother results, and come infused with volcanic minerals that help to lock in moisture for a shiny, glossy finish.

Leave it to a brand named after "good hair days" to provide a lineup of sleek, high-tech styling tools that live up to their promise. GHD's smart heat technology helps to maintain an even heat output to optimize each styling. 

The GHD Platinum +1-inch Styler smart styler has predictive technology that detects each section of hair between the plates, recognizing the thickness of your hair and the speed at which you are styling it. The genius iron then adjusts the temperature to ensure the hot plates maintain an optimal temperature of 365 degrees Fahrenheit that's ideal for styling, not sizzling. The sleek rounded barrel design also allows you to create curls and waves, making this a versatile do-it-all styler that's well worth the splurge. 

The versatile GHD Curve 1 1/4 inch soft curl iron will help you achieve a range of curl patterns, from soft waves to bouncy coils, with ease. The iron features a protective cool tip at the top of the wand that provides a safe and convenient place for you to hold as you wrap and curl. Special ultra-zone technology also helps to maintain an even 365 degrees Fahrenheit that lock in style without scorching your hair.
