You know it better than anyone, that hour after hour working in the salon adds up to a whole lot of aches and pains caused by repetitive use of your hands, arms, and wrists. But on the flip side, you are creative and giving and take great pride in your work, so you are not going to stop working on a beloved client just because you are in pain. That is where ergonomics comes into play. Choosing an ergonomic tool makes a huge difference. Ergonomics refers to the efficiency and effectiveness of a tool’s design, and for stylists, shows the capability and comfort of the tool over time. FHI Heat has your back and has created our tools with ergonomics in mind so that you have tools that are useful, but also safe enough to help you avoid repetitive stress injuries while doing the job that you love.
One of our newest ergonomic specialties isThe Curve, aptly named for its shape. This tool works the curves in two ways to create stunning waves in your client’s hair. First, the tool is fitted to the curves of your hand so that when you are creating curves or waves, you are taking it easy on your joints that are used in this repetitive motion. Secondly, this new styling iron features curved plates, which work with the hair’s natural curve to smooth, style, or wave your client’s hair in half the time. With tourmaline ceramic plates infused with magnesium, the curve also keeps your client’s hair free from static, which is a helpful trick on cold winter days.
The Platform Blowout Brush
If you are worried about repetitive injuries when helping clients to look their best, try our brand newPlatform Blowout Brush.This brush can dry, smooth, style, and curve, all in one tool. Even that fact alone helps you because the fewer tools you have to juggle, the better off you will be.
The Platform Blowout Brush has several ergonomic features. To start with, the handle of this brush is ergonomically curved in order so that you can be comfortable when working with a client. Beyond the handle, the oval-shaped barrel with curved edges makes this brush easier to maneuver and helps you to be more precise and careful with your movements, which means less wear and tear on your body. Because the Platform Blowout Brush has 360-degree airflow, this will also help you avoid awkward situations trying to style your clients’ hair.
Beyond ergonomics, the plasma ionic technology found in this brush purifies the air as you work with your clients, eliminating static and frizz, and helping you create a smooth, silky hairstyle.

The Bounce Pro Curler
With four versatile sizes to choose from, ourBounce Pro Curler should be your go-to curling iron behind the chair. With three different plates of baked ceramic plates infused with tourmaline, this curling iron creates negative ions that reduce frizz, help you eliminate static especially in the winter, and seal in moisture.
Since you have a choice of sizes and temperatures, you can cater your curler to your client’s hair type and the style which you are trying to achieve. The edge-to-edge ceramic heat helps this curler to heat up fast and evenly distribute the heat to your client’s hair, thereby reducing the time it takes to get the job done.
Being a hairstylist is a double-edged sword–or should we say shear? On one hand, you want to put the time and precision into creating the perfect look for your clients. But on the other hand, long days on your feet trying to manipulate hair tools can leave your hand, arm, and wrist muscles in a lot of pain. The tools at FHI Heat offer you a win-win scenario, with tools that help you beautify your clients in a shorter amount of time, which are easier on your joints in the process.
