The best hair dryer 2023 will be light enough to tuck into your hand luggage on the weekend, and powerful enough to give you salon-quality styling. This Beurer dryer fits the bill, weighing just 1 pound, 2 ounces, while still offering six heat and speed settings.
Celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh’s line of mint green pro tools has a cult following that rivals his own (think Gisele Bundchen and Karlie Kloss). This superlight model is the latest addition to his lineup, and Dermstore beauty editors love it for its speed and whisper-quiet operation.
Look for a hair diffuser with longer prongs, which will reach deeper into your hair to dry your strands without smashing your curls or waves. Brown also recommends the Devacurl diffuser, which is made for all curl types. If you’re using it on a short curly cut, she suggests simply hovering the diffuser over your hair rather than “cupping” it. It’ll be just as effective. This model comes in a variety of sizes, including a small one that fits the nozzles of most hair dryers.
Comb or Pik Attachment
For hair that’s curly, wavy or frizzy, a comb or pik attachment helps add volume. These comb attachments have long, heat resistant teeth that comb through the hair as they dry and help detangle knots. They also reduce the intensity of blow dryer air flow, taming frizz and creating a smooth finish.
Unlike diffusers that distribute the airflow to evenly tame your curls, these wide-tooth comb attachments lift curls at the roots for a voluminous look. They’re a must-have for wash n’ go styles, such as loose, bouncy curls or Bantu knots.
Some of these comb attachments have soft plastic “fingers” that massage the hair while drying it. They come in different lengths so make sure the one you choose has prongs that match your hair texture (longer for longer hair and shorter for short hair). Some comb or pik attachments can also be used to straighten your hair or even create a faux bob.
This is one of Conair’s most well-known dryer models, thanks to a slew of stellar online reviews and an affordable price tag. It’s a great option for all hair thicknesses and textures, with three heat settings, ionic technology, and different styling attachments.
3 HEATS/2 SPEEDS for all your beauty needs, while IONIC TECHNOLOGY reduces frizz up to 75% more than hair dryers without natural ion generation. Easily switch out the attachments for your desired look: the thermal pik detangles and volumizes, the concentrator focuses airflow to smooth and straighten, and the diffuser creates gorgeous curls and waves. Salon performance is now at your fingertips.
