For more than 55 years Babyliss have been creating professional yet affordable hair tools that allow us to create salon-worthy locks at home, and their hairdryers are some of the best on the market? But which is the best Babyliss hairdryer?

Here we look at two Babyliss hair dryers, the 3Q and the Boutique Salon dryer – which one will come out on top?


The Babyliss 3Q hairdryer was designed with you in mind; the dryer itself is 15% lighter than other Babyliss hairdryers, so you've got greater ease when it comes to styling, plus it'll feel comfortable holding in the hand for longer.

It also boasts a motor that's advanced in design, giving your a suprememly controlled airflow, as well as ionic conditioning that helps to smooth out your hair and keep it soft too.

The Boutique label is quite fitting for the BaByliss Italian Hair Dryer which looks and feels like it belongs in a boutique, with a typical Italian style with sexy curves and a high gloss finish.

This is one hair dryer that you won’t be rushing to pack away in its box, and if you have the space, there’s a hanging hoop should you want to use it.

Both the Babyliss 3Q hairdryer and the Boutique hair dryer are designed with a choice of three heat settings, and two different speed settings. They both also have a cold shot button, the only thing different is that the 3Q's cold button can be locked into place, so your thumb won't go numb whilst you press the button down, a simple but effective design feature.

The 3Q has also been designed with faster speed and higher air pressure, which allows it to dry the hair more quickly. It even has more ionic conditioning properties, which helps to keep hair smooth and stop static build up.

Specialist technology

Like we mentioned above, the 3Q has been designed to dry your hair even quicker, which reduces how long your hair is subjected to the heat. Plus the ionic design allows hair to feel nourished and look glossy once you've finished.

The Boutique hair dryer also boasts specialist technology in the form of Tourmaline and Ceramic. These help to reduce the amount of heat damage that is caused to the hair, by drying the locks from the inside out. The ceramic design also ensures it heats hair evenly, so you don't suffer from heat spots.

After making its debut backstage at the Emilia Wickstead SS16, the Babyliss 3Q hair dryer has burst onto the hair tool scene and made its mark amongst the high end hair tools. This dryer has everything you could want and need from a hair tool – but it’s definitely on the higher end of hair dryer prices – but certainly has the technology to back it up.

Italian made for superior quality, the BaByliss Boutique Salon Power Dryer combines high fashion styling and delivers a professional standard performance. BaByliss have so much faith in their Boutique Italian Dryer that they include an impressive five-year warranty, which is pretty unheard of these days with appliances. We know you won’t be disappointed with this hairdryer; it’s powerful, effective and attractive.

The best Babyliss hairdryer

Honestly, it’s hard to distinguish much between these two hair dryers, they both have the incredible technology to ensure your hair isn’t subjected to too much damage whilst styling, and they look and feel professional too. Which one will you buy?
