For a true salon blow dry choose an AC motor dryer. AC dryers are used in salons and have a powerful airflow which dries hair quickly. They’re generally heavier than DC hairdryers because of the larger, more powerful motor, but they also have a longer life.

This guide explains some of the features to look for when choosing your new hairdryer.

Ceramic hair dryer

Helps give balanced heat distribution.

Heats and speeds

The more heat and speed settings a dryer has, the more control you have over the airflow that is produced, so you can select the option that suits your need. For initial rough drying you may want a hotter, faster airflow, but as the hair dries you may want to reduce the heat. For styling, you generally want a reasonable heat with a slower airflow speed.

Ionic hair dryer

An ionic system releases a stream of balancing ions to eliminate static and frizz, and enhance the hair condition to give a smooth, shiny finish.

Retractable cord

Power cord rewinds inside the dryer for safe, tidy storage at the touch of a button.

Wattage

The wattage gives a guide to the power of the dryer. The higher the wattage, the more heat the dryer produces.
