The Hair Dryer That Gave Kacey Musgraves Barbie Waves for the Met Gala

We all played with Barbies while we were growing up. Barbie could really do it all: work a nine-to-five, go on a camping trip with Ken, hit up the beach with Skipper and throw an unforgettable sleepover at her Dreamhouse — and that was all in just one day! We always wished we could step into her tiny plastic shoes, if only for one night.

With the help of the T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer, that’s exactly what country sensation Kacey Musgraves did at this year’s Met Gala. She was transformed into a modern Barbie from head to toe, absolutely nailing the “Camp: Notes on Fashion” theme. She rocked blonde locks, of course, and her waves were so perfect, we just had to know the secret behind them!

Musgraves hair stylist, Giovanni Delgado, revealed the secret to transforming the singer into a bonafide Barbie, and there were no mini plastic hairbrushes involved. After prepping her hair, Delgado used his “trusty” T3 dryer on Musgraves, brushing with a medium-sized round brush to prep the hair for further styling. Luckily for Us, this T3 dryer is 20% off right now!

This hair dryer’s sleek white and rose gold design just feels professional — probably because it is! It uses IonAir technology to produce digitally-controlled heat, which may result in faster hair drying time and more time to live our life! This dryer also has five temperature settings and two speed settings, beating out others with just a couple of settings by a long shot.

The unique features don’t end there. This dryer also features a volume-boosting switch, as well as an auto-pause sensor, which actually stops airflow when we release the handle. So this dryer is cute and smart, huh? Don’t forget the lock-in cool shot button, too!

Another thing we love about this dryer is that it’s actually quiet. Using a loud hair dryer every day can actually cause permanent hearing loss, so we’re super appreciative of this aspect. It’s also lightweight with an ergonomic handle! Super easy and literally breezy to use, especially with the long 9-foot cord.

This Cura Luxe dryer also comes with a concentrator nozzle for up-close-and-personal drying, no matter what our hair type. T3 claims that our hair will be left with body and shine, and as this dryer is award-winning for its capabilities, we believe it!

If we pick up a T3 Cura Luxe Hair Dryer for ourselves right now, we’re not only saving 20%, but we can also receive an included gift! While supplies last, Dermstore is offering a Perricone MD Pre-Empt Brightening Eye Cream ($28 value), with any $150 purchase!

Musgraves proved at this year’s Met Gala that life in plastic truly is fantastic (and that it certainly doesn’t hurt to be dressed in a hot pink Moschino coat-dress and have a matching Corvette convertible). We love her brown hair, but we have to say, Barbie’s platinum blonde looks amazing on her, and we wouldn’t hate it if she pulled out this aesthetic again for a different occasion. We’ll be keeping an eye out!
