(NBC News) – The face of the cosmetic industry is changing, with new DIY devices that could let you skip a visit to the spa or salon.
“More brands are interested in making those advanced treatments accessible to at-home users,” says Rio Viera-Newton with The Strategist.
Dyson, a company known for household appliances, is making waves with high-tech hair care
Dyson products like the Airwrap Styler use high pressure and high-velocity air instead of extreme heat, measuring airflow temperature 40 times per second to minimize damage to the hair.
Dyson also uses low-heat technology in its Supersonic Hairdryer. But these products have a hefty price tag of 400-dollars and up.
New technology is also taking skincare to the next level. The FOREO UFO is a $280 smart facial device with custom treatments.
