What is a Freestylist

The Freestylist is a patented constant counterbalancing mechanism designed to support your hair dryers weight while you’re using it. It was invented to help stylists avoid and alleviate carpal tunnel, shoulder and arm problems associated with holding their dryers weight. A stylist can now move their dryer up, down and all around, the dryer feels like it’s floating weightlessly in their hand.

An unintended benefit of the system was it totally eliminated all cord tangles. Cords tying themselves in knots, getting caught on the chair or client and the mess of cords on the floor are no longer a problem you have to endure. Most salons using the Freestylist now keep their flat irons and clippers in a draw leaving the floors pristine.

In less than one second without moving a step a stylist can now have the dryer in their hand and running.

If you want to see a short video clip watch it here.  While watching bear in mind the dryer is so weightless the stylist, Daniel, can hold it with two fingers.

The Freestylist is becoming a standard item in every salon. Stylists using the Freestylist knows it makes doing blowouts enjoyable. The most common statement you will hear from a stylist that has been using the Freestylist is “I can’t do hair with a regular blow dryer any more”. This is a video that explains the Freestylist a little better.

Benefits of the Freestylist

  • Every stylist worries about carpal tunnel, rotator cuff, bursitis and repetitive stress syndrome. The Freestylist helps alleviate the pain and ailments of holding a 18-24oz hair dryer all day by making the dryer light as a feather. Your days of worrying about pain are things of the past.

  • Regular dryer cords get tangled, become a tripping hazard or just get in the way. The Freestylist manages the cord while you use it. No more tangles, no more tripping or strangling your client keeping your work environment clean and safe.
  • With the Freestlyist, you’ll have the best looking salon in town. Clients will be impressed about the professional modern look your salon will have.
  • Studies have shown that with proper use of the Freestylist the dryer’s ‘on time’ is reduced by 7%. If all the stylists in the United States used the Freestylist it would save 100 million kilowatt hours of electricity every year. If the Freestylist were used worldwide it would save 1 trillion kilowatt hours of electricity every year. Because you can’t drop and break your dryer any more, they last much longer. This means we save our planet’s resources by not manufacturing as many new dryers and we save our landfills.
