1. A tool suitable for hair styling consisting essentially of:

  • (a) a body having a longitudinal axis, a proximate end, and a distal end;

    (b) a rotatable member extending from the body, the rotatable member having an outer surface substantially defining a curve and being continuously rotatable relative to the body;

    (c) a motor able to continuously rotate the rotatable member, the motor located in the body; and

    (d) a styling arm that does not rotate with respect to the body and is pivotally attached to the body, the styling arm having a distal end consisting of non-rotatable elements, wherein the styling arm is movable between an open position and a closed position sufficiently close to the rotatable member such that positioning hair between the distal end of the styling arm and the rotatable member allows for hair styling between the rotatable member and the styling arm in the closed position,wherein the rotatable member is rotatable by the motor in the closed position without any part of the styling arm rotating; and

    wherein pulling the tool through hair in the closed position with the rotatable member continuously rotating styles the hair.
