battle of the BLOW DRYERS

jessica’s blow dryer recently decided to stop working, and on the quest to find a great new blown dryer, she had the brilliant idea to test and review blow dryers.

without further ado, here is the rundown on some of the leading blow dryers on the market. we’ve got nine great products to show you, so stay tuned.

1. metropolis z-ion dryer

 

we bought our first z-ion dryer over 10 years ago. and one of the most attractive qualities was the 10 year warranty. Our first z-ion lasted about 8 years, and when it died, they replaced it no problem. But maybe they just don’t make them like they used to, because the replacement just stopped working after about a year and a half. still, the Z-ion is a really good model, in spite of how heavy it is compared to other dryers.

best features

  • powerful
  • ultra fast drying
  • cool setting works great
  • protective guard on heating element & intake
  • all around good product

cons

  • heavy
  • diffuser not included

2. schwarzkopf pro

 

next up is the schwarzkopf professional dryer. we love schwarzkopf products, and this one is no exception.

best features

  • 5 speed settings
  • variable heat
  • digital temperature readout
  • cool setting works amazing - click once for cool, click again for heat.

cons

  • length makes it difficult to round brush your own hair
  • settings on back of handle make it easy to change temperature on accident

3. schwarzkopf mini

 

never go on vacation without a hair dryer. next up is the travel sized schwarzkopf dryer. the schwarzkopf mini is perfect for saving space in your luggage, and despite it’s small size, works incredibly well. What it lacks by way of speed settings and a cool function are made up for by its portability and usefulness.

best features

  • concentrator and diffuser included
  • adjustable voltage setting
  • space-saving design

cons

  • no cooling function
  • one speed setting

4. nano titanium babyliss dryer

 

this next dryer, the nano titanium babyliss dryer is a good dryer. it is incredibly lightweight and user friendly, with variable settings and cooling function. it would be a good dryer to use at home, but not so much for in shop use, as it is not quite as powerful as some of the others on this list.

best features

  • affordable price point
  • multiple heat and power settings
  • press and hold cooler button
  • great for home use

cons

  • low power - takes a long time to dry hair

5. babyliss mini travel dryer

 

next up is this travel version of the babyliss dryer. babyliss mini offers great portability and is perfect for packing in your luggage.

best features

  • variable settings
  • cool function works great without overheating
  • foldable design and attractive case for easy portability
  • variable voltage setting

cons

  • diffuser not included

6. mint blow dryer

 

the mint blow dryer, while very useful is not the favorite out of the bunch. it offers a lot of different settings but it is not very powerful, and takes a long time to dry hair. it also takes a little longer to heat up than some of the others. while this may be alright for use at home, it is not a salon quality product.

best features

  • lightweight
  • comes with diffuser and concentrator attachments
  • variable settings

cons

  • low power
  • short length doesn’t allow it to be tucked under arm while styling hair

7. elchim jade dryer

 

the jade dryer from elchim is an italian product that is available from some of the larger beauty supply chains. this model boasts to be 30% lighter than the professional model, but it is still pretty heavy compared to the other ones on this list. this dryer might be great for home use, but as far as shop use goes, it isn’t the best choice.

best features

  • variable power setting
  • 2 diffusers included
  • press and hold cooler button
  • solid construction

cons

  • heavy
  • low power

8. dyson supersonic

 

this dryer has been all the rage on the market lately, and we hear a lot of good things. right from the start, the packaging is very attractive. the dyson supersonic is a well designed and useful dryer, but it doesn’t offer a variable speed or heat settings. and the buttons on the back of the handle take some getting used to. all and all it is a good dryer, but is not practical for shop use.

best features

  • modern design
  • cool setting works well
  • small and lightweight
  • concentrator and diffuser included

cons

  • no variable settings
  • buttons on back of the handle are awkward

9. elchim 8th sense

 

the elchim 8th sense dryer is extremely popular in the industry right now. it works great on all hair types and is very powerful, but it takes a few seconds for the temperature to adjust, and is a bit heavier than some of the others. aside from that, it also gets very hot to the touch, so we had to be extra careful when using this dryer. not very user friendly.

best features

  • 5 heat settings, 2 speeds
  • press and hold cooler button
  • comes with concentrator

cons

  • gets extremely hot to touch
  • temperature takes too long to adjust
