In this article I’m giving you my honest review of the best hair dryers that I’ve used in the salon. I have worked in salons for over 10 years, giving blowouts to my clients, and also blowing out my own hair on the days that I actually wash it. I have used and tested an enormous amount of hair dryers and there is a difference in performance and results for each and every hair dry. Whether you’re looking for a high performance professional hair dryer, travel hair dryer, or a hair dryer that will simply get your hair dry with ease, I’m here to help you find the best blowout hair dryer.

Babyliss Pro V1 Volare

The Babyliss Pro V1 Volare is a great hair dryer. It’s built with a Ferrari-designed V12 engine. Your probably asking yourself, what does that mean? and who cares. An engine like this can last up to a 300% longer then a typical blow dryer motor. It provides a strong torque to allow for greater air pressure and a stronger airflow, allowing for a smoother blowout. I can dry my clients hair so fast they barely have time to dig into the latest gossip magazine. If you’re looking for an amazing one of a kind professional hair dryer, with speed and style, this one is for you.

Twinturbo 3500

Don’t let size fool you. This Twinturbo hair dryer is a similar to my Twinturbo 3200. More compact, yet adding a extra punch of power. Lighter then other Twinturbos, it makes it easier to hold for long periods of time. I used this in the salon for many, many years and had all my clients needing to take one home. It’s great to go to the salon and treat yourself to a blowout, but when you give yourself a blowout at home you best equip yourself with the right tools to get the best results.
