New from Conair, the European inspired and designed Brilliance Collection is a range of products offering ultra-fast styling and personalised heat control suitable for all hair types.

VS Sassoon says the Straight & Curl Brilliance is the first high performance straightener with stainless steel housing to create glamorous hair from the inside out and is the brand’s first high-performance straightener with stainless steel housing. This dual-function styler combines two essential hair tools, making the need for a separate curler and straightener obsolete.

It also offers fast, controlled airflow to reduce drying time and heat damage, uses a “next generation” EC digital motor with a vastly longer life than a standard AC motor hairdryer, much less noise, comes with a volumising diffuser and ultra-slim concentrator nozzle and a five year product warranty.
