Hair straighteners are the new man-bag essential

Move over girls, the guys are out to steal your gadgets and the latest favourite… your hair straighteners.
Our spies on the Debenhams shop floor have told us that more men than ever have been asking about hair straighteners probably due to male celebs like Peter Andre who spend hours in front of the mirror doing their hair.
Hair straighteners for men have been in such demand that we’ve sourced a mini straightener which works wonders on men’s hair AND fits perfectly into your average man-bag.
Some of the A-list responsible for sparking the trend:
- Peter Andre
- X-factor’s Lloyd Daniels
- Zac Efron
- Peter Crouch
- David Beckham
Those who’ve been tuning in to watch Peter Andre’s real life documentary Peter Andre: Going It Alone, were probably not surprised to see the super-preened pop star running a pair of straighteners through his hair and it seems like men everywhere are doing the same.
Although they’ve really become popular since the nineties, hair straighteners have been around longer than you might think. Hair straighteners as we know them today are credited to Scottish heiress Lady Jennifer Bell Schofield, who refined previous efforts into a hinged, heated iron in 1912.
