Who has hours to spend styling their hair these days? But that doesn’t mean you have to suffer bad hair days. We’ve tracked down the best hair tools to wave, smooth and curl your hair in minutes.

Babyliss Curl Secret (£120,

Genius alternative to curling tongs, as it’s totally foolproof with no skill required. Clamp a section of hair and it cleverly sucks and winds the hair inside the tool, heats for the correct time, then beeps when you’re ready to release. Perfect curls every time.

Elchim 3900 Healthy Ionic Dryer (£99,

Light, easy to hold and much quieter than most hairdryers (a godsend if you want to get ready in the morning before your baby wakes), plus the ionic action makes hair super-soft and shiny. But the biggest bonus is it speeds up drying time by up to 30%, which is invaluable on busy mornings.

Tangle Teezer (from £10.99,

We couldn’t be without this knot-tackling brush. Brilliant in the shower for gently smoothing out stubborn tangles and doesn’t pull on dry hair or create static. Great if your hair has changed texture during or after pregnancy.

Babyliss Wave Envy (£45,

Like a giant soft crimping tool, clamp sections of hair and work down the shaft. Super-fast, it adds texture and natural looking waves to hair in minutes.

Cloud Nine The O Ultimate Set (£199.95,

Heated rollers can be way too faffy and time consuming for busy mums, but these heat up in four seconds flat. Pop one into the O Pod and it’s ready to use almost immediately. Wrap around sections of hair, leave to cool, then shake or brush out for speedy volume or waves.

Nicky Clarke Desired Wide Plate Straightener (£79.99,

If you have thicker, coarser hair, regular-sized straighteners may be a bit wimpy for you. Switch to a bigger plate for speed smoothing – they also work equally well on any hair type to cut styling time.
