The online destination for all things hair powered by L'Oréal.

The site showcases stylists’ professional expertise and promotes the latest industry innovations. Through smart, conversational content, Hair.com brings stylists to their clients in a new way.

L’Oréal Professionnel’s salon hair styling tool, Steampod, has been showcased as a star product in the hair and beauty world since its debut in 2012. Now re-engineered with perfected technology, we couldn’t wait to get our hands on the new and improved Steampod 2.0 New Generation.

The results of our own test run have shown that there’s truth behind the hype. Although the product isn’t currently available in the United States, here’s hoping it hits this side of the Atlantic soon. Here’s why we love it so much.

Steampod: A Giant Leap Forward

This steam-powered hair straightener was first launched in 2012, after years of meticulous research in collaboration with Rowenta Salon Electrical. The hair styling tool combines patented German technological innovations with a classic French design.

Its successor, the Steampod 2.0 Nouvelle Génération, was released in 2015 as the new and improved model. Hair professionals can now confidently recommend an accessible home tool to their clients that they trust will achieve salon-approved results. So what makes this flat iron stand out from the rest out there?

We tried it: Steampod 2.0

On paper, the Steampod has a lot to offer. The real question is: Is it too good to be true? We’ve broken down the top things to know.

As far as design, the Steampod is gorgeous. We thought it was minimalist and modern, and couldn’t wait to get our hands on it as soon as we saw it. The slim build is impressive considering its power. It’s also super lightweight! As an added bonus, it is easy to handle and a dream to use thanks to its intuitive interface.

Design aside, let’s talk performance. The side bristles brush through your strands as you steam.The steam is only released when the irons are pressed together, so that it can last throughout an entire styling session.

Our Final Thoughts

After a successful trial run with the Steampod 2.0, we think it is an excellent addition to any hair accessory arsenal. We’ll eagerly wait for the day this technology makes its way into salons near us.
