Most problem items for carryon luggage involve possible weapons, gels, aerosols, and liquids larger than trial size. Normal grooming products are generally ok. So yes, take the curling iron and blow dryer if you want.

curling and straightening irons are common travel items we see every day at both the checkpoint and in checked bags. I am happy to report that these items, with the exception of the type that requires a butane cartridge (see below), are permitted in your carry-on and checked baggage.
The only kind of curling and straightening irons you have to be concerned with are the types that take a butane cartridge. These are only allowed in your checked baggage, as long as you only have one and a safety cover must be over the heating element. No spare cartridges are allowed. This type of iron is not permitted in your carry-on luggage.
