You might not be traveling much these days, but having photo-ready hair when you find yourself away from your home is a must. That said, most regular-sized hair tools either take up too much space or don't all fit inside your purse or bag. Rather than leave behind your favorite hair tools, switch them out with these lightweight, and — most importantly — portable options. Some even pull double duty by acting as a 2-in-1.

We've put together a list of the bestselling hair must-haves from foldable hair dryers to cordless flat irons that you can take practically anywhere.
