The Rankings

BaBylissPRO Ceramix Xtreme Dryer
Rank & Style Approved


BaBylissPRO Ceramix Xtreme Dryer

LOVED FOR: This powerful 2000-watt dryer dries hair quickly and efficiently. 

BEST FOR: Thick-haired gals will appreciate this dryer's intense and purposeful airflow.

Conair Ionic Ceramic Hair Dryer

USERS SAID: "I have been a professional stylist over 30 years. I loved my last dryer because it was extremely lightweight. I searched here looking for another that was lightweight, the control buttons were not rockers, and actually had a cool setting, as well as a cool shot button. This is perfect for all of the things that were on my wish list."

HELPFUL TIP: This dryer comes with two attachments: a diffuser for textured styles and a concentrator for smoother styles.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer & Styler

LOVED FOR: This two-in-one product features bristles that detangle your hair while also drying it.

BEST FOR: If you want less frizz, less pain, and more time in your day, this is for you.

Conair Vagabond Compact Hair Dryer

BEST FOR: Gals on the go who need something lightweight, efficient, and compact

USERS SAID: "This product is quite small compared to a normal size hair dryer yet it is just as powerful... Folds up and very compact and lighter weight. Nice that it is dual voltage for travel to other countries if you have that need."

Remington Hair Dryer

USERS SAID: "It's hard to believe a hair dryer could make a big difference but this one absolutely DOES. I'm sooo thrilled with it! My kinky/curly fine/thin hair has dried much faster than usual (even though it's the same wattage as my previous dryer) and so smooth, soft, shiny and healthy looking (getting that without a flat iron also means that it gets to stay fluffier looking instead of flat and stringy)." 

HELPFUL TIP: Concentrator and diffuser attachments are included for easy styling.

Infiniti Pro by Conair 1875 Watt Salon Performance Hair Dryer

LOVED FOR: So much power (1875 watts, to be exact) in such a lightweight, easy to use dryer

HELPFUL TIP: Take your pick of six different colors.

Revlon 1875W Infrared Hair Dryer

LOVED FOR: This budget buy uses tourmaline ionic technology to reduce frizz and enhance shine.

HELPFUL TIP: This dryer is coated with ceramic three times to create less damage.

Revlon Salon One-Step Volumizer Hair Dryer

LOVED FOR: The three heat settings, oval brush design, and 1100 Watt drying power

USERS SAID: "I'm a stylist of 9 years, I've straightened many heads in my lifetime, I needed this nine years ago! OMG, I use it prior to performing full blowouts on clients and it helps tremendously, especially for finicky children and teens. It's great for all hair textures." 

RUSK W8Less 2000 Watt Dryer

BEST FOR: The stylist who dries hair all day, every day

LOVED FOR: Coming in at less than a pound, this hair dryer won't bother your wrist—and at 2000 watts, it's also powerful enough for all your styling needs. 

BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Dryer

USERS SAID: "I never thought that the type of hair dryer you use could make such a difference! I have always blown my hair out and followed with a flat iron. I noticed a difference the very first time I used it, and was using all of the same products as before. My ends are not frizzy, and my hair dries quickly. I highly recommend it!"

LOVED FOR: Its even airflow, quietness, simple settings, and quick drying time
