On my last trip to Europe I realized that none of the many heat styling tools I currently owned, were dual voltage so they weren’t going to work when I traveled. But the trip was saved when a new Ultra CHI Flat Iron from the The Spring/Summer 2015 collection of Ultra CHI Flat Irons (read my review) was sent to me for review right before I left. This fabulous flat iron straightens, curls, flips and styles and has dual voltage, meaning I could use it safely in Europe. And these colorful flat irons from Ulta even come with tote bags  in coordinating colors.  Normally, I just live in dread of dealing with frizz when I travel because my regular flat irons are 110 volts only. Bring a converter plug of course but otherwise, and know that a full sized flat iron takes up some weight and room in your luggage, but it’s worth it for shiny, less frizzy, style-able hair all trip long and back home, too.

Advice Sisters Beauty Tip: If you’re purchasing a new heat styling tool and you travel overseas, invest in one with Dual Voltage so you can use the same tool away from home, too.
