Burning Question: Fashion-Editor Beauty Emergency in Milan!

WE HERE AT LUCKY DESPERATELY NEED YOUR ADVICE. An anonymous member of our fashion team has--not for the first time--nearly succeeded in burning down her Milan hotel with her flat iron.

Not the flat iron's fault: A bad electrical converter started sending out sparks. "About 4 minutes later, my room smelled like I had blown up an auto plant--smoldering steel, motor and coils and whatever else is in that thing. The towel it was resting on looked like a perfectly seared t-bone. So, what's the answer to this situation? Truth be told, this isn't the first time I've nearly caused an inferno. Is there a converter that actually works with US hair appliances or do I have to buy a blow dryer/iron for every country I travel to?"
