If you blowdry your hair on the regular, you want a dryer that will last. You want a dryer with options for all your hair needs. You want the Trezoro.
This dryer has multiple heat options and speeds, plus different nozzles to make sure that your blowout is exactly the way you want it. It’s quiet but powerful, and will stay with you for years.
One of my least favorite things about styling my hair with a blow dryer is holding a big honking dryer up for so long. To be honest, my arms get tired. Not so with this Conair dryer. It’s petite, but powerful.
I also love that it has a lint filter so that you can clean it out after using it. That keeps it running longer.
Another one of the smaller entries on our list, this Revlon hair dryer is perfect for travel. Lots of reviewers also mentioned that it’s easier to store than many hair dryers thanks to the size and the ring on the handle that lets you hand it anywhere.
Plus Revlon is a trusted brand so you know that you’re going to get solid results from this little dryer.
You might notice that this blow dryer doesn’t look quite like the other ones on our list. It has some unique features that make it stand out. First, the head of the dryer is large so that you get faster results. Second, there’s a removable diffuser. You can use this to diffuse the air flow and add more texture to your blowout.
This dryer is a champ when it comes to removing frizz and giving you beautiful curls or waves.
Speaking of diffusers, this Revlon dryer also has a diffuser add on, but it’s also got more. It also comes with a concentrator. Together you can use these two elements to create any hair style, from textured and curly to smooth and sleek.
An extra bonus is that it comes with clips so you can section and style your hair more easily. I cannot sing the praises of sectioning clips enough. They are a game changer.
I can’t deny that this dryer absolutely caught my attention thanks to its beautiful orange color. But that’s not the only reason to love it. With this dryer you’ll also get a diffuser and a concentrator for ultimate styling options with a powerful motor that dries hair so fast.
This is one of Conair’s most powerful blow dryers. If you’re like me and you want to get your hair dry and get moving, this is the dryer for you.
This little baby doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of some of our larger blow dryers, but it absolutely is the most compact and the easiest to transport. Not only is it small, but it actually has a folding handle so that you don’t have to manage the bulky shape of a dryer.
You can use it anywhere in the world without an adaptor (so cool), and still get a solid blowout.
This product looks a little goofy, but it works like a charm and you can use it on almost any hairdryer. Just slip it over the snout of the dryer and you’ve got the perfect tool for styling out texture and curl. Check out the reviews:
“I love the Hot Sock because I can hold my blow dryer however I want and not worry that it’s gonna fall off. As always, defusing takes patience but I have gotten some beautiful results using this and I will never go back. Not to mention, it’s easier to travel with.”
Maybe you’re in the market for a more traditional diffuser. If that’s the case, you want the DevaCurl diffuser. It fits almost any blowdryer, and its got a very cool design that will change your blowout game.
This diffuser is hand shaped, which is alarming when you see it unexpectedly in the dark, but so effective when you use it on a blowdryer. It allows the air to flow at your hair from all angles so that you can dry quickly without frying your hair.
If all those new fangled diffusers don’t seem interesting to you, we’ve also found an incredibly solid universal diffuser in a more classic style. This Hairizone diffuser is the classic style that snaps on the end of your dryer and helps you create beautiful curls.
It’s also compact enough that you can bring it with you if you’re traveling, and use it on any dryer you come across.
