INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. (Nov. 5, 2015)-- A Carmel High School graduate has created the hair tool of the future. Not your traditional flat iron, this one allows you to ditch the cords and do your hair anywhere.

The cordless flat iron and straightener created by Ryan Crean is called "Unplugged."

"I'm always on the go and always doing photo shoots and being on call at all these different locations and sometimes there wouldn't be an outlet," said Crean.

Ryan is now a hairstylist in Beverly Hills. She says she had to create a tool that worked for her to keep up with the industry she's in. She started a Kickstarter page to raise money to mass produce her product. Unplugged works using a lithium battery. It includes heat settings that go up to 450 degrees.

Once you run out of juice you can charge it through a USB cord on your computer or even in the car.

"But this is for the woman who is on the go--for someone who just wants to have something just in case, in your clutch for girls night out," said Crean.

She fell in love with beauty products after she got her first hair straightener in middle school. Now she's ready to share her gift and passion with women around the world.

"I wanted to just make myself look good, feel good. When I started doing it for other people it just made me feel so good and it does everyday," she said.

Ryan fell short of her Kickstarter goal of $35,000. She's currently looking for investors to partner with so she can mass produce the product and start selling it worldwide.
