The Innovator Collection: Tips For Our Hottest New Tools

By now, you’ve been introduced to FHI Heat’s iconic Innovator Collection, the Polisher and the Curve. This powerful duo uses cutting-edge technology and design to dry and style your hair with dynamite results and in a fraction of the time. But even the best tool is not much good if you don’t know how to use it, so we sat down with stylist/educator Gina Ortega to find out the best way to use these dynamic new products. Read on to get all the details about the power behind these tools, and how you can harness it for your hairstyle needs.

The Polisher

The 411

The Polisher will revolutionize the way you dry and style your hair. As a paddle brush and blow dryer in one, you can dry your entire head of hair in less time than a traditional blow dryer, and the shine you can achieve will change the way you style your hair from here on out.

Key Qualities and Benefits

  • Acts like a high powered blow dryer
  • Combines blow dryer with paddle brush features which makes styling easier on your wrists
  • Features Plasma Ionic Technology which creates a plethora of ions
  • Stamps out static and frizz, especially in these colder months
  • Discharges an increased amount of negative ions to dissolve particles of water
  • Creates hair that is shiny and smooth

Best Techniques for Use

With all the great qualities that The Polisher contains, it is important that you use it correctly to get the maximum benefits from the tool. Gina Ortega explains the benefits of using The Polisher. As a premier stylist and educator, she recommends these following steps.
  • Step 1: Brush out clean damp hair and separate into large sections.
  • Step 2: Start by working on a 2” subsection
  • Step 3: Hold The Polisher under the section, starting at the root.
  • Step 4: Work The Polisher from roots to end until the section is smooth and dry.

For volume: The technology of The Polisher ensures that you will get even more volume than usual. In order to take advantage of the volume, make sure you hold The Polisher horizontally at the crown and pull through from the roots to the ends, moving in an upward direction.

For polish: The enhanced negative ions of The Polisher add extra polish to your hair.  Ensure that you use DRY hair, following the same steps above to create your smooth and polished look.

 

The Curve

The 411

Like The Polish, The Curve is a technological wonder that will change the way you approach your hair. Named for its shape, with curved plates that glide easily through your hair and mold to the contour of your hand, The Curve is 50% faster when it comes to adding curls, waves, or smoothness to your hair.

Key Qualities and Benefits

  • Ergonomic and fits in the curve of your hand
  • Contains tourmaline ceramic plates infused with magnesium which lock in moisture
  • Heats up instantly from 265 to 450 degrees Fahrenheit, so that all hair types can benefit
  • Alleviates wrist pain
  • Seals the cuticle to allow for more shine
  • RapidTek Ion Technology offers instant heat and locks in moisture
  • Curls, straightens, and styles in half the time

Best Techniques for Use

When it comes to using The Curve, there are several tricks of the trade that will take your experience from good to AMAZING! Ortega definitely sees the value in The Curve, and has some advice for how to get the most out of this new product. The Curve will be most effective if you use these following steps.

  • Step 1: Brush out clean dry hair and separate hair into large sections.
  • Step 2: Start by working on a 1” subsection
  • Step 3: Hold The Curve horizontally and clamp each subsection at the root.
  • Step 4: Slowly pull The Curve through to the ends, slightly beveling toward the face to create a smooth finish.

For curls: Ortega recommends holding The Curve vertically, ensuring that the tip points down. Clamp the hair in the middle of each section, rotating the iron away from your face, and pulling it through to the ends.

For waves: Make sure you use a larger section, and use the same process as you do to make curls, except move The Curve through your hair more quickly to make your softer waves.

Ortega also recommends the following temperatures to be used for The Curve:

  • Fragile/Fine Texture: 265–340°F / 130°C–170°C
  • Medium Texture: 355°F- 375°F / 180°C- 190°C
  • Thick/Coarse Texture: 395°F- 450°F / 200°C - 230°C

Add The Curve and The Polish to the list of things you can count on in this world. If you want a better, more stylish hairstyle in a fraction of the time, count on FHI Heat to take you to the top of the technological world and give you products that will enhance your current routine. And along with the top-of-the-line products, follow Gina Ortega’s advice as a stylist and educator to create the look of your dreams.

The modern hairstylist has come a long way since the early days of the Renaissance when people first started taking their hair care seriously. Our wonderful modern hairstylists who spread joy and creativity as effortlessly as hairspray have evolved over centuries to be people we trust, people who teach us, and people we confide in.
