Hairdryers might flood the high street, but can they really match up to the professional hairdryers we see in the salons? They may cost a whole lot more, but they have unrivalled technology, here we pick out the best professional hairdryers.

Thankfully they’ve been made much more accessible for us to get our hands on them and we can get professional grade hairdryers in our home too.

Elchim 3900 Healthy Ionic hair dryer

The Elchim 3900 Healthy Ionic hair dryer uses innovative technology that combines heat control and air flow velocity to produce a product that makes hair supple, softer and shinier.

The dryer itself is small and sleek, but the technology ensures this stands out as a must have. The dryer is quiet, blasts heat evenly and is kind on to the hair, thanks to the ionic ceramic system.

The ionic ceramic system helps moisturise and enlighten the air that creates frizzy and dry hair and it also helps eliminate electrostatic charges that can damage different hair types.

This powerful hair dryer can straighten even the frizziest of hair in a short amount of time.

The stylish, contemporary design of the Elchim is pleasing to the eye, simple to navigate and comfortable to hold.

ghd Aura Hairdryer

The ghd Aura hairdryer was introduced a few years ago now, and it still stands out as an excellent tool that dries hair quickly, quietly and without damaging hair extensively.

The dryer was created by styling experts and scientists to ensure they created a tool professionals would want to use, and was slick and techy in design.

The dryer boasts two innovations, the Laminair technology for a concentrated flow of air and Cool Wall technology that allows you to create beautiful volume in the locks as you dry them.

It’s also lighter, quieter and uses less electrical energy than your average hairdryer which is a bonus.

The Parlux 3200 Compact Hair Dryer has incredible power but weighs in at only 490 grams and measures a tiny 20cm, there's little chance of your arm going dead whilst you style your locks.

Collexia hair dryer

The hairdryer has remained practically unchanged since its invention in the 1920s. A single fan blowing air over a heated element has been the design principle that all hairdryers have followed – until now. The Collexia is the dryer of the future, cutting down on drying time, is energy efficient and leaves hair in tip-top condition. But how does it differ from other high quality hairdryers on the market? The unique patented dual-fan system doubles the volume of airflow the dryer is able to produce. While other dryers have reduced drying times by increasing heat, the Collexia CHP Compact vastly improves drying time without excessive, hair-damaging heat – by up to 50%.

But don’t think that this powerful hair dryer will weigh down your arms, it weighs just 525g and the ergonomic design means it’s easy to use with buttons places in an easy way to change whilst you’re styling your hair.

With a 2500w motor and extreme velocity, it gives faster drying power and optimum styling control.
