Best Hair Dryers Reviews – With the return to normal underway, you may be looking to primp and prep your hair as you begin to hang out with other fully vaccinated people. One hair product you may want to consider investing in is a high-quality blow dryer to style your hair at home. A hairdryer is an essential hot tool that can help add volume and shine to your hair and either straighten your strands or enhance your curl pattern, depending on the attachments you use.
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer:
“A lot of stylists love the Dyson, and there’s a lot of reasons why,” said Andrew Fitzsimons, a celebrity hairstylist. “It’s super lightweight and compact, which makes it easy to use on long session days and easy to transport between jobs,” he noted. Hairstylist Courtney Foster called the Supersonic her “all-time favorite blow dryer,” noting that “it prevents heat damage by regulating direct heat on the hair strands, eliminates frizz and provides high shine, which is crucial when it comes to getting the perfect blowout.” Stefan Bertin — celebrity hairstylist to Letitia Wright and Alessandro Ambrosio — said the shine it provides hair is “unbeatable,” and the quiet motor is another big draw for him. “I’m very softly spoken, so clients usually can’t hear me when I’m drying their hair, but the Supersonic is so, so quiet,” he said. Jhonatan Rendon — who styles Christian Siriano and Lindsay Lohan — also recommended the Dyson because the “hairdryer is engineered to protect hair from extreme heat damage.
Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer:
One of the most challenging parts of an at-home blowout is nailing down your technique. The highly-rated Revlon hair dryer aims to simplify the hairstyling process by simultaneously smoothing your strands with nylon and tufted bristles and drying your hair. Due to its oval shape, you can get close to your roots to create massive volume and bouncy movement. Revlon’s blow dryer sports three heat and three-speed settings, along with a cooling feature to help your style last longer. The One-Step hairdryer sports ionic technology to dry your hair quickly, and it has earned a 4.6-star average rating from nearly 257,000 reviews, making it Amazon’s No. 1 seller in hot airbrushes and the second bestseller across all beauty and personal care products on the site. It also earned a spot on our list of the best hair products of 2021.
Ghd Helios Hair Dryer:
Bertin previously used the more affordable ghd Air blow dryer. However, he said the new Helios hairdryer “outdoes it” because “it’s lightweight, so you have great control and your arms don’t ache after five minutes.”. Bertin noted it takes less time to dry hair with the Helios model, and he called it “really powerful but not overly hot or damaging.” He also noted that both the ghd and Dyson blow dryers are “advanced,” and both “work perfectly with all hair textures and types” — the brands both offer diffusers and afro comb attachments, so “all bases are covered, whether you want a sleek or curly look.” Rendon also recommended the ghd Helios blow dryer, noting that it’s “lighter, faster and [it offers] more precise styling.” “It’s an amazing blow dryer for all hair types. You can also get the nozzle comb and add it for hair with texture or tight curls.
Babyliss Nano Titanium Portofino Dryer:
Foster, who is based in New York, uses this hairdryer in her salon and recommends it to any client “that needs a blow dryer at home but does not necessarily use it often.” She noted because the blow dryer is infused with nano titanium properties, it helps prepare hair in the blowout process by removing static and closing the hair cuticles.
Harry Josh Pro Tools Ultra Light Pro Dryer:
Celebrity hairstylist Caile Noble — Natasha Lyonne, Sofia Carson, Lili Reinhart, and Hailee Steinfeld— called this hair dryer’s 12 heat and speed settings the “key in making this dryer perfect for all hair types.” He noted the airflow speeds up drying time and the adjustable ion technology allows him to achieve frizz-free, shinier hair. Shaw also keeps the Harry Josh hairdryer in her pro kit because “it has excellent settings that range from cool to hot, and it’s a cute [mint green] color, too.” It weighs less than 1 pound, so it’s comfortable to hold when you’re drying your hair at home.
InStyler Turbo Ionic Blow Dryer:
Shaw — who styles Hilary Swank, Jodie Comer, and Shailene Woodley — called the InStyler her “favorite” travel hairdryer, noting the “cute and mini” dryer — which weighs less than 1 pound — fits into any bag she carries. “The best thing about it is that even though it’s tiny, it generates a lot of heat so even while you’re traveling, you can lock in the baby hairs and smooth your frizz,” she said. The Turbo comes with a diffuser for curly hair textures and a concentrator that helps reduce flyaways — the dryer sports an infinity dial so you can customize both the temperature and negative ions it emits based on your hair needs.
“This dryer is so lightweight and isn’t too much of a burden on your arms, which is key when you’re using it all day at the salon,” said Annagjid “Kee” Taylor, a celebrity hairstylist and author of “All Hair Is Good Hair.” “I love that it gets hot very quickly — but not too hot, of course — and comes with an air concentrator attachment, which allows you to concentrate the heat on sections of hair without damaging the integrity of the curl pattern,” she said.” It also sports tourmaline ceramic technology, which helps seal in moisture and prevents frizzy hair.
