You probably have a laptop, a smartphone, and you might even have a tablet. But what kind of electronics are you packing in your fashion and beauty arsenal? Maybe you don’t think that you need any appliances in these areas, but you may already have some that you’ve been neglecting.
While there aren’t a ton of beauty and fashion appliances you’ll want (which can save you some space), there are a few that could help make your life easier. Here are a few general appliances and why you may want to have them on hand, just in case.
Hair Styling Appliances
Do you have a blow dryer? When was the last time you actually used a blow dryer? Not every woman uses a hair dryer to dry her hair, but if you are trying to do a specific style, get a sleeker look, or make sure your hair dries flat and even, you just might want to have one on hand.
Blow dryers can also serve many other purposes around your home, from removing stickers from items to removing the wax of a spilled candle. Don’t just assume your small appliance only serves one purpose. Crafty people know that these things can be great for multiple tasks.
A curling iron may be useful if you want to add curls, waves, or of you just want to deal with your hair curling out on the ends. If you have curly or wavy hair that you are simply tired of, you may want to always have a working flat iron on hand. Straightening your curly locks won’t always be the first thing on your list, but you never know when you’ll want a new look.
Clothing Care Appliances
There are far more small appliances for your hair than there are for your clothing, but there are a few handy items you may want to keep around the house for when the need arrises. One of the most common clothing appliances in the home is an iron. Find a wrinkle, get rid of it, just make sure you have an ironing board.
If ironing seems like too much of a chore, or it’s just not good for your fabrics, you could try using a garment steamer. And, if you are really crafty, a sewing machine is another item you really should have in your home. Why throw out a ripped shirt if you can simply fix it yourself and save some money?
Many of these great items have multiple uses, like using your sewing machine to make some great homemade blankets and pillows, so why not have them around just in case you need them. None of them take up much space and they can all be found at affordable prices from almost any location, from big box stores to specialty stores.
