Top ten hairdryers

Choosing a hairdryer can be tricky business, whether it’s ceramic, ionic, tourmaline, professional or some other design, it can be a minefield to choose. Here’s our pick of the top ten hairdryers.

These hairdryers are all available to buy now, have a number of different price points, and in our opinion make up the top ten of hairdryers, in no particular order.

Dyson Supersonic hairdryer

The hairdryer is the first of its kind powered by a miniaturised air pump in the handle, using the same airflow principles as Dyson’s desk fans. It also means it’s extremely ergonomic, so your arm doesn’t tire whilst using it. The minute ‘digital’ V9 motor is located in the handle.

The hole in the middle also means it looks like no other hairdryer we’ve ever seen before, but with a £299 price tag, it also means it blows all other professional-grade hairdryers out of the water when it comes to price.

Not only is the hairdryer eight times faster than some traditional models, it doesn’t wreck your hair and maintains natural shine with a controlled airflow that peaks at an optimum 150 degrees (some competitors go up to 230). It also has a glass bead thermistor measures temperatures 20 times a second to make sure your hair isn’t exposed to excessive heat.

Panasonic Nanoe hairdryer

The Panasonic Nanoe hair dryer certainly has a salon professional look to it, with a high-tech design and 2.7m cord that’s ideal if you don’t like to be chained to the plug whilst drying your hair.

So what exactly does this Nanoe technology do? It produces nano-sized electrostatic atomised water particles, which hold around 1,000 times more water than negative ions. And? It, therefore, provides deep moisture into the hair, reducing possible damage and dryness caused by heating. Nanoe penetrates deep into hair to maintain optimum moisture balance, which keeps the cuticle on the surface in good condition to make hair shiny and easy to manage.

The Panasonic Nanoe hairdryer is powerful (2000w) yet retains 1,000 times more moisture in the hair and scalp than the normal ionic hairdryer so really ideal for all hair types including damaged, dry and coloured hair. It also has a focus on keeping the scalp healthy which is absolutely vital for healthy, strong hair. Panasonic has done really well to include the importance of this and we think there’s going to be plenty of hairdryers that follow suit.

The Panasonic Nanoe prioritises the health of your hair. The dryer’s settings and attachments allow you to create a variety of different styles, and at the same time, it provides your hair and scalp with moisture that is normally taken away when drying your hair.

Lee Stafford Coco Loco hairdryer

The gorgeous pink and rose gold dryer certainly appeals to our style senses, and thankfully the design of this hair dryer does too. The powerful motor helps to dry our hair quickly and efficiently, plus the coconut-infused grille means your hair is treated as you style your locks as well. Coconut oil is really good for you, both inside and out and has essential proteins required for nourishing and repairing damaged hair. The Lee Stafford Coco Loco dryer ticks all the boxes, it looks pretty, doesn’t dry your hair out as your style and comes with a slim concentrator to allow to create the perfect blow dry.

Lee Stafford has jumped on the coconut craze and created a great hairdryer that you’re bound to fall in love with.

ghd Aura

Styling experts and scientists collaborated on its development and the result includes two techy innovations. Laminair™ technology makes the air output more concentrated, allowing precision when working on one section of hair. This also aligns hair in a single way to grant more smoothness and shine. But before you worry that could leave it flat, the Cool-Wall™ technology allows you to get closer to the scalp giving increased root lift and volume, setting your style as it dries.

It’s also lighter, quieter and uses less electrical energy than your average hairdryer which is a bonus, but what we really want to know is that it will actually make our hair look HOT.

The ghd Aura Professional lets you style while you dry, giving you speedy ultimate root-lifting volume and super smooth shine. With two breakthrough innovations in technology, ghd aura offers a truly new drying and styling experience that delivers the ultimate in luxurious volume and a smooth, shiny finish.
