Let’s face it if we had the time and money most females would love a daily trip to their favourite hair salon.

That’s because no matter how hard we try, getting that professional blow dry look or big hair with lots of volume, at home, often defeats us.

Enter an amazing new DIY hair product that can give you salon perfect hair. It’s a detachable hair brush that has become a staple for those working in the beauty industry because it allows you to dry and style your hair at the same time.

Curl Me by Pro Blo is a handle that comes with six ceramic brush barrels ( a bit like a roller) and its own clips. The idea is you snap one of the barrels to the handle section and blow dry your hair as normal section by section leaving a barrel attached to your hair as you go along. You curl the barrel part into your hair , clip it into place and remove the handle. The barrels remain in your hair until it has cooled (around 25 minutes) locking in the volume and style.

The product has taken the hair industry by storm and been called a genius , a life saver, a must have and the best kept secret around. It has been used by stylists on Strictly Come Dancing, Take Me Out, Hollyoaks, Emmerdale, The National Television Awards, the Brits and London Fashion Week.

Celebrities who use Curl Me include Coleen Rooney, Michelle Keegan, Cath Tyldesley, Sophie Kasaei, Holly Hagan, Jorgie Porter, Jasmin Walia, Dawn Ward and Caroline Poole. It has been featured in magazines such as Vogue, Hello and Now, and a YouTube tutorial video has been watched by thousands of females.

Hairdresser Hayley Jennings who owns House of Creation in Halifax Road, Ripponden, came across Curl Me when she was working on a London photo shoot for Hairdressers Journal at the end of last year.

The 35-year-old is one of the country’s top hair extension specialists and has worked for the Racoon Artistic Team for 10 years . She is also an educator for the company and used to teach hairdressers how to put in hair extensions as well as cut, style and colour match them.

Five members of the artistic team took part in the shoot and each one worked with their own celebrity hairdresser using extensions. Hayley, who has two children and lives in Elland, worked with Errol Douglas. The images appeared in Hairdressers Journal.

Hayley, who opened House of Creation three years ago, stocked Curl Me last month and used it on some of her regular clients. “ It was an instant hit and I sold out in a week and had to order more. It is easy to use and a great hair pick up between visits to the salon for some of my regulars. It is also brilliant for holidays. The brushes come in three different sizes and don’t knot or tangle and you can buy extra barrels. It really is a clever idea,” she says.

She is busy with hair extensions in her salon and has just introduced a new type of permanent hair weave designed for women who are losing their hair. Millions of UK women suffer from excessive hair loss, or alopecia, where they shed hair faster than it’s replaced or stop producing it altogether. Daily Mail journalist Sarah Vine last month wrote an article on her hair loss and how she had invested in a permanent hair weave.
