It’s officially seat sale season, and we’re ready to jet off for the next summer capital! But if you’re like us, and you enjoy your creature comforts no matter where you are, lugging all your essentials around can prove a challenge. Clothes are just the gateway to packing: there are shoes to wrangle with, toiletries to arrange, gadgets to insulate for safe storage. And just when you think you’ve got all your beauty loot in order, it dawns on you: where do you put your hair tools?
To pack, or not to pack: that is the question. If it’s worth anything, we at BeautyMNL say pack—and not because we’re being frivolous! Our secret? We go small and compact with our travel tools (fun-size, if you will). Below, find every portable tool you’ll need for #goodhairdays out of town. Minimum fuss, maximum gorgeousness.
FOR DETANGLING KNOTS
The mini version of Tangle Angel’s bestseller, this godsend has super-soft bristles that won’t hurt as you brush. The antibacterial and anti-frizz design makes it extra useful. Tangle Angel’s Tangle Angel Cherub, P1,198.
This brush has a click-off cover that protects its teeth, which is incredibly useful for when you’re packing it. And it doesn’t just detangle your hair—the Compact Styler lends itself easily to volumizing techniques likes backcombing and teasing. Tangle Teezer’s Compact Styler, P1,110.
FOR EASY BLOWOUTS
This mini hair dryer by Korean brand Unix has the same aeration capacity of a standard-sized model. Plus, it’s adorable. Unix’s Take Out Mini Hair Dryer, on sale at P896.
This blue baby folds down to a packable size, then folds right out when you need to use it. It also comes with a pack of hair rolls so you can dry your hair into waves or curls. Unix’s Take Out Mini Hair Dryer with Soft Hair Roll, on sale at P1,075.
Here are some good old-fashioned rollers, too, in case you prefer the classic shape your mom uses. Suesh’s 2-in-1 Velcro Hair Rollers, on sale at P126.
This mini marvel is approximately the size of your hand. Fierce and fun-sized. Herstyler’s Mini Zebra Hair Straightener, on sale at P1,990.
The coolest thing about this mini straightener isn’t the range of colors (which we love). It’s specially designed for short hair! Herstyler’s Colorful Seasons Mini, on sale at P1,990.
FOR CURLING & WAVING
This compact, foolproof wand fashions limp hair into mid-sized curls with ease. Unix’s Take Out Mini Curling Iron, on sale at P1,076.

FOR YOUR MOOD
Some like it hot, some like it straight, some like it wavy, and most like it neat. This multi-tasking tool does it all—and it’s a mini. Unix’s Take Out Mini Multi Iron, on sale at P1,075.
BONUS! FOR THE PERFECT FINISH
This isn’t necessarily a miniature item (it carries up 300ml in volume)—but it is safe for travel! You may hold this bottle at any angle—upright, sideways, upside-down—and it will give you the perfect mist each time. Stylist Sprayers’ Stiletto Heels and Barber Pole, P698 each.
