The first one selected is especially perfect for really curly hair, and worth the $25 price tag.
Conair Infinite Pro 1875Watt Salon Performance Dryer
This inexpensive dryer from the iconic Conair is a great economical favorite which has an AC motor, which means it dries hair quickly without singeing it off. It’s also one of the most affordable, high-quality options out there!
Deva Curl Deva Dryer & Devafuser
Awarded Naturally Curly Editor’s Choice 2016 Best Styling Tool – The Deva Curl hairdryer guarantees softer, shinier, frizz-free curls with its 360-degree airflow. It’s the first dryer and diffuser specially designed for curly/wavy hair, as exhibited through its patented design. It includes a hand diffuser, plus it looks really cool!
Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer
The folks from the cult favorite DRY BAR have created their Buttercup Blow-Dryer, which is super powerful and ultra-light weight at just one pound and one ounce. Another great feature is that it has an eleven-foot long cord — perfect for rooms where the outlets are nowhere near the mirrors. The dryer comes with two plastic nozzles packed with minerals that conduct negative ions. These ions cool the air that passes through your hair, reducing heat damage and leaving hair shinier.
Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000
A $250 blow-dryer!! But it’s soooo worth it for the Winner of Allure’s Best of Beauty Award 2014, 2015, and 2016. Created by the stylist behind Gisele’s perennially lust-worthy waves, it has some very impressive specs: 1,875 watts of power, a cool-shot button that blows cool air, and most importantly, the ability to toggle between ionic and nonionic heat (depending on the style you’re going for, use ionic for sleek styles and nonionic if you’re after volume). Plus, though it’s not technically a travel dryer, it’s compact enough that one editor has been known to toss it in her suitcase.
on Fifth Avenue in New York, make certain your hair is about 75% dry before you start to use a brush Start by squeezing out the water, then towel dry, squeezing your hair into the towel and then blowing it dry while running your fingers through your locks. Now you can use a brush and start at the root. Some like to pin up sections of their hair and work on one section at a time, other like to use a diffuser, whatever your choice, three quarters dry before you start is a must!

For Quicker/ Easier Blow Drying – According to Zahir of the John Barrett Salon at Bergdorf Goodman on Fifth Avenue in New York, you should make certain your hair is about 75% dry before you start to use a brush. Start the process by squeezing out the water, then towel dry, squeezing your hair into the towel and then blowing it dry while running your fingers through your through your hair. Then, you can use a brush and start at the root (if hair is curly start at hair tips). Some like to pin up sections of their hair and work on one section at a time, while others like to use a diffuser. Whatever you choose, be sure that your hair is three quarters dry before you start. It’s a must!
