BEST HAIR DRYERS
Join me on a trip through the best options I have available in each category, and match it with your hair style.
REVIEWS BY TYPE
Don’t get buried under ceramic or tourmaline and about a thousand other materials. Let me dig you out instead!
What I Look for in the Reviews
No, that cute little girl you see isn’t me, but I just had to include her picture on my website. I also think it’s a good way to explain that I grew up in hair dryer wonderland, and that I’ve since learned almost everything there is to know about them.
It can be totally overwhelming to try and organize your thoughts on what you need. Of course every manufacturer says their hair dryer is the best for your hair, but that can’t be true. Not everyone has the time for the intense study I did, so I wanted to make it easier on the rest of the world.
Power & Options
The Best Hair Dryer to Match your Style
If you don’t have the time (or desire) to read through a bunch of reviews, don’t worry. I totally get it. With you in mind I’ve put a few pages together with the best dryers per hairtype, to save you time gathering the information you want.
The Best of the Best
If you haven’t found your dream hair dryer by matching it to your hair style, I now invite you to go through some of my overall best picks. Obviously there is a ton of overlap with the previous selections, so it’s hard to really divide things up clearly, but you can still get a pretty good idea of what is there.
Best Multi-Purpose Hair Dryer
The BaBylissPro Portofino 6600 combines different attachments with powerful ion-titanium technology to get you smooth hair with real oomph. A guaranteed frizz-stopper that has it all!
Most Funky Looking Dryer
Okay this isn’t a comment on performance, but some people really care about how things look. Also, this dryer is pretty stellar at the things it does. Take a look at the Panasonic Nano-e for style and power.
Fastest for the Money
The professional Rusk Speed Freak Tourmaline Hair Dryer has everything you need to get your hair dried quickly without a lot of frizz. This model basically takes me to my happy place.

Most Lightweight Blow Dryer

Best with Porcelain Ceramic
The BaByliss Pro BABP6685N Carrera2 Dryer takes the value of ceramic and kicks it up a notch by adding porcelain for an even smoother finish.
Best Ionic Hair Dryer
The Elchim Healthy Ionic Hair Dryer is designed to keep your hair safe while balancing out the body with the perfect amount of ions.

Now you’ve examined the best hair dryers, it’s time to look beyond that. Below I have some really useful informational articles that will hopefully help in the decision making process.
Top 20 Blow Dryers
I’ve thrown a lot of information at you, and even though it’s all broken up into different categories it may still seem a little overwhelming. If that’s the case, do not visit my reviews using the top menu because there are simply too many options.
Instead, browse the best of each category using the handy table below. Just click what you’re looking for and go right to what you need. I hope you find something to “float your boat”.
The last thing you need is to find you need to replace your hair dryer in a short space of time, especially if you’ve invested in one for the long-term. A good hair dryer is the difference between spending money one time and spending it over and over. By doing the homework up front, you can save yourself the frustration that can come with “disposable” dryers, or dryers that don’t match your needs.
If you’re still unsure what to choose, you probably want to head back over to the chart and look through there again because it’s so streamlined. When you find what you want, just read the review, hit “add to cart”, and you can get your new blow dryer at the speed of light. Well, at the speed of your local shipping carrier anyway.
The information I’ve posted here is designed to be fast and helpful, everything is available at a glance and, better yet, you may end up with more features for your money because the perfect dryer also turns out to have a lot of other stuff too. There are a ton of options which means the right dryer for your beautiful hair is out there. We just have to find it together.
Here’s to great hair my friends!
