Gift Your Hair Goddess a New Flat Iron

A great gift idea for that lady in your life who loves sleek hair is a flat iron, be it your teenage daughter, niece, wife or mom. Even if she has a flat iron - and, yes, your hair goddess probably does - it's still a great gift because the technology just keeps getting better and better. Many of today's flat irons are less damaging, style faster and even give you the option of creating waves or curls. Here are some of our favorites:
