T3 holiday gift guide

Gifting season is in full swing. Brand Ambassador Ari Alvarez-Tostado told us what’s on her holiday gift guide for the women on her nice list! 

T3 Holiday Gift Guide

For your mom: Cura or Cura LUXE

“In general, both dryers are amazing and the best I’ve ever owned! But I have gotten the question, ‘What’s the difference between the Cura and Cura LUXE?’ and which one to get. Cura is the more classic dryer, with amazing technology it will dry your hair in half the time. It has 3 heat settings and is very light, a must in any holiday gift guide. I personally don’t use a dryer for that long so I use the Cura, but my mom (the blow dry queen) always has the perfect blowout and has tested more dryers than a stylist. She has been using the Cura LUXE and loves it! The Cura LUXE has 5 heat settings, the same quick dry as the Cura, and has an Auto Pause Sensor. When you put it down the Cura LUXE senses it’s not being used and shuts off, then turns back on once you pick it up again. My mom loves this feature since she uses the dryer for longer periods of time and does put it down a few times while styling.”


For your sister: SinglePass Curl

“In my opinion, this is the perfect classic curling iron with T3’s cool tech and hair health goal. The SinglePass Curl 1.25″ has a 1.25” barrel which works on all hair types and lengths is perfect for those who leave their down and don’t like to play around. It heats up super fast and has 5 heat settings (I recommend on any T3 hot tool to start on the lowest setting, I use mine at 2 out of 5 and it’s more than enough power). This is a great holiday gift guide item for someone looking to learn how to style with a curling iron or for a friend if you’re not sure what to get them!”


For the woman who tries anything: Convertible Collection

“For me the Convertible Collection is a dream come true! I have had curling tools in the past and I personally hated that if I wanted a different curl or hairstyle I would have to buy another full curling iron. The Convertible Collection allows me to switch out barrels depending on my mood. It is also great for travel; instead of having to take more than one tool with me I usually just take my Convertible Base and two barrels, one that will give me defined curls like the Defined Curls 1” barrel or Polished Curls 1.25” barrel and another loose one like the Cascading Waves reverse tapered barrel or one of the straight wands. It’s definitely a great holiday gift guide item for your daughter, sister-in-law or best friend! The fun thing about the Convertible Collection is you can start small with just one or two barrels which gives them the option to keep adding to their collection later on – or next year you can help them complete it.”


For the classic woman: SinglePass LUXE

“The SinglePass LUXE has the same tech as the curling tools: ceramic plates, 5 heat settings, quick heat-up, and great results. The SinglePass LUXE is probably the most versatile piece and gift. We all know how to use a flat iron and it is a must-have for any woman. I used to think all flat irons were the same and thought I didn’t need an upgrade, but since getting this one I’ve never looked back. It gives a smooth, sleek, and shiny finish and again the heat levels are so perfect!”


For the woman on-the-go: Compact Tools

“These are a great gift for people who travel, even if they work long hours and like getting a little touch up during the day (they both fit in your purse or a gym bag!). They have all the T3 power in a small package. T3 created two compact tools; The Featherweight Compact dryer and the SinglePass Compact flat iron (available together in the Mini Miracles set). The compact dryer is a lot smaller and lighter than a full-sized dryer and even folds to give you even more luggage space. I’ve traveled with this baby and love that I no longer have to compromise with the hotel dryers.”


For your grandmother: Volumizing Hot Rollers LUXE

“My grandmother has used curlers all her life and knows exactly how to place them to get the perfect waves. These are great tools for women who have lots to do and don’t want to waste time getting ready. The Volumizing Hot Rollers LUXE style your hair while you do your makeup, cook breakfast, get dressed, pretty much anything! I also feel they are a tool that does not damage hair as much because the heat is lower than other hot tools. These work best for women with wavy to curly hair. I love that they heat up so quickly and come in three different sized sets but sell additional singles for you to add to your set.”


For yourself: Source

“I have been dying to talk about this one! I got my Source installed a few months ago and love it! It helps reduce free chlorine and removes hydrogen sulfide, iron oxide, dirt, sediment, and odors. I totally noticed a difference, my hair feels soft and clean. I have the Source Showerhead and I am planning on installing the Source Hand-Held Showerhead too. I know it’s designed for hair but it’s also feels great on my skin (you know that weird feeling when you feel you can’t get the soap off?). I highly recommended if you have water softeners at home or hard water. Each filter lasts from 3-6 months, depending on the showerhead.”
