Hot Iron Holster
Good idea, limited use
Make sure and note that this is a "Hot Iron Holster," not a Hair Dryer Holster--despite the fact that the Hot Iron Holster's own site says "designed to be roomy enough to hold any hot styling tool or hair dryer." While it will undoubtedly hold straightening and curling irons, it will only hold mini-sized hair dryers--the "bullet" type with a wide-nozzle and the exhaust fan in the back. I use a Conair with the exhaust fan on the side (because it's the only dryer that will fit into a diffuser), and the only way it will fit into the holster is at an extremely awkward angle for a right-handed person. Which isn't the biggest deal, I guess, but I wanted this to streamline things in the morning, not to take up more time by being awkward. Since I wanted this for a dryer and I don't use a curling iron or straightener (as a curly-hair, I have no use for either), this is going back. If they'll take it...because the silicone material holds onto every single piece of hair and fuzz in the universe, it seems.
Now that I look more closely, every single hair dryer caddy that The Container Store carries shows the same type of wide-nozzle, "bullet" shaped hair dryer being used. So I will look elsewhere for something that will hold my diffuser-fitting Conair.

I love this
As a hairdresser working on my clients with hot tools is easy but when it comes to doing my hair at home I'm always having problems with storing hot tools or burning my counter! This has fixed all my problems!!!!! Thank you so much for such a great product!!!!!

Very handy & grips well
Tired of having counter clutter! This grips the counter and is very handy to own. I think it's great. It isn't a thing of beauty though so if you're particular about appearance, this looks a bit clumsy. I don't care- it is utilitarian!
