Whether you're fitting out a brand-new salon or simply ready to upgrade your tools, we've got all the information you need to choose the right electrical tools for you!


Styling using high quality, professional electrical tools is the perfect finishing touch to any salon hair service. It helps to elevate and showcase the incredible cut and colour you’ve already created. But with so many hot hair tools available, it can be hard to determine which is the best fit for your salon.

Our wonderful team of Haircare Group hairdressers, educators and creatives have put together this buying guide to help give you confidence when making your next electrical tools purchase.


When setting up your salon, it’s crucial to equip yourself and your team with a range of tools that help you provide high quality services. Here’s a list of must-haves for any styling kit;

Using the latest technologies to deliver results in consideration with good hair health, wide and slim styling irons deliver a range of styling results for clients requiring sleek, curly, wavy hair, and much more.


The backbone of any salon, the humble hair dryer is crucial to hairdressing services. Along with reliability, a high performing hair dryer should reduce drying time and effectively smooth or add volume without damaging hair.


Curling tools and wands are indispensable for creating updos, special occasion styles and everyday looks. When choosing wands for your salon, we recommend opting for curling irons that have technology that enhances hair without causing heat damage.

Electrical grooming tools that trim, fade and perform precision shaping are essential to styling shorter hairstyles. For some barbers, brand loyalty or familiarity to a certain line of grooming tools may be a deciding factor. Here are some high performing clippers & trimmers by brand; 


Your budget will ultimately dictate what kind of equipment you’ll have available in your salon. If your business is in its infancy, or you’re just about to open your first salon, we recommend starting out with more affordable options to help kick start your journey.


When selecting electrical tools for your salon, it's essential to consider the delicate balance between budget and performance. While budget constraints are a reality, investing in higher-quality tools often yields better performance and reliability.

  • More affordable options allow you to establish or upgrade your salon without significant financial strain.
  • Cost effective tools can deliver good results for basic styling needs.
  • Some economical tools may lack advanced features and cutting-edge technology, potentially limiting styling possibilities.
  • Durability and longevity may vary compared to higher-end tools, potentially requiring more frequent replacements.

If you’re looking for a high performing, economical option, Fusion electrical styling has a great range available for stylists that need to stick to a strict budget. With a range of quality tools that are reasonably priced, helping you get the most bang for your buck.

Alternatively, you may be a home hairdresser who specialises in colour services with limited styling offered, so you may not feel the need to invest in multiple electrical tools. In these cases, the hairdresser preferred Featherjet Plus Ionic Professional Hair Dryer is the crown jewel of the Fusion brand, supported by the SlickTouch range of irons.

If most of your clients are requesting blow-dries and blowouts, it’s important to invest in multiple high-quality hair dryers for each station in your salon. We know buying multiple electrical tools at once can be costly, so we recommend taking advantage of the Special Offers that Haircare Group has available.

Alternatively, if you are undertaking a high volume of bridal or special occasion styling services, opting for higher quality straighteners and curling wands is imperative.
