Tried and tested: Cordless straightener

Can a cordless straightener work as well as one that’s plugged in and delivering constant heat? Claire Spreadbury finds out...

Lee Stafford’s No Strings Attached Cordless Straightener allows you to smooth locks without having to stand near a plug. 

Staying hot for a full 15 minutes should give you enough time to straighten, curl or flick your hair as you please. 

The bright pink straighteners slot into a matching semi-spherical base, which does take up a fair amount of space, though you can also attach them straight to the plug. 

There’s no green light to tell you they’re ready — just a hot smell — and I do feel like I’m more likely to accidentally burn myself because the hot blades are poking up and out of the base. 

But they straighten well — and having the option to move around more is a definite bonus. I’m going to keep mine in the office for post-work styling in the toilets!
