How to choose the best hair dryer


I have worked in the health and beauty industry for nearly 20 years.  In my (humble)  experience there are many things one looks for when selecting the best hair dryer.   Obviously style, color, and personal touches mean a lot to each and every individual.   However there are major functions that must be taken into account when selecting a great hair dryer.  Will it fit when you travel?   How heavy is it?  Does it get hot enough to smooth hair out?  Is there a hot and cold option?  How many fan speed options are there?

There's so much that one looks for when selecting a hair dryer and last but not least - THE COST.  But there are 4 main elements to consider when selecting a good quality hair dryer to use at home or in the professional environment.

These 4 main elements include:
  • Weight
  • Heat
  • Force
  • Noise
Many hair dryers are powerful - but it makes them noisy or heavy.    Others are light-weight dryers but don't have the "force" or proper heating elements to get the desired results.    When all 4 things come together - a great hair dryer is born.  Other elements are to be considered such as:

  • Nozzle & size of nozzle
  • How many functions
  • Is there a "cool shot" 
  • Is it travel smart   (size wise)
  • Does it contain a case
etc etc.     Those are mostly personal preferences for your hair dryer - but hopefully these help.    Coming soon - GLOSS & TOSS HAIR DRYER & OTHER STYLING TOOLS.
