The best hair dryers for 2019

Need to dry your locks? Here are the best hairdryers in every price range

Hair dryers are a must-have tool for their sheer versatility. Not only can they dry your wet hair after a shower, but they can also create many different hairstyles for both men and women. Hair dryers can help to straighten hair, they can help lock in those curls, they can help create volume, and more. No matter what style you’re going for, you want to look for hair dryers that are gentle on your tresses, and won’t destroy your locks.

For those who don’t have a lot of time on their hands but would like to have neatly-styled hair that is selfie-ready every day, a reliable dryer can be a godsend. We’ve rounded up some of the best hair dryers on the market.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

A $400 hair dryer might sound a bit over-the-top, but Dyson went all out on this styling machine. It has a digital V9 motor in the handle that spins up to 110,000 RPM and a microprocessor that monitors air temperature 20 times per second. This means that the dryer will work quickly to dry your hair, but it won’t overheat your hair and cause excess damage.

The dryer’s diffuser and concentrator attachments are magnetic, so you can easily and seamlessly switch between attachments. The dryer looks awesome too, with one of the coolest designs we’ve ever seen.

Remington Hair Dryer with Ionic + Ceramic + Tourmaline Technology

The Remington Hair Dryer gets the job done well without breaking the bank. Plus, it has a lot of perks you’d get with more expensive dryers like ionic, ceramic, and tourmaline technology for smoother hair and less frizz.

With its affordable price point, this dryer is a quality option and you may just be surprised by how well it works. The 1,875-watt max power motor means you’re getting a quick dry, and three different heat settings and two different speed settings allow you to find the right custom setting for your hair-type. Hit the cold shot button for cool air that locks in your carefully created styles. You even get attachments — a diffuser and a concentrator.

Bio Ionic Goldpro Dryer

The Bio Ionic Goldpro Dryer was designed to dry your hair with less heat.

Long-term heat styling likely won’t do any favors for the health of your hair. Some hair dryers blow air that is so hot and forceful, you’ll feel like you’re in a clothing dryer. You may have damaged, dry, or frizzy locks from years of using dryers and irons on your tresses, but at the same time, you just can’t part with your styling tools. With this Goldpro hair dryer, you’ll get a barrel made with 24k gold.

You read that right — the gold helps to distribute the heat more evenly than traditional hairdryers, so it dries your hair more quickly and allows you to spend less time using heat. At the same time, the dryer’s ionic technology keeps your hair hydrated. The device itself is also durable and pretty lightweight, so your arms won’t get tired while drying your mane.

Jinri 1875w Professional Salon Infrared Hair Dryer

best hair dryers jinri dryer

The Jinri Infrared Hair Dryer is all about options. It comes with three attachments — a diffuser, a straightening comb, and a concentrator. It operates quietly and has two different speed settings and three different heat settings so you can choose exactly how you want to dry your hair.

This dryer works fast, drying even the thickest hair in a matter of minutes. The dryer also utilizes infrared heat and negative ions, which leaves hair looking smoother and also helps to reduce frizz.

DevaCurl DevaDryer & DevaFuser

The DevaCurl Dryer & DevaFuser will help you manage your curly frizz.

Gals and guys with curly manes can have a hard time finding a dryer that is delicate on fine tresses and also effective at calming unruly hair. Thanks to its ionic heat, this dryer dries your hair to define your natural curls. The diffuser attachment, albeit strange-looking, provides five prongs and 50 air vents that deliver 360-degree airflow toward your curls, thus enhancing the natural waves of your hair while also taming frizz. The dryer is gentle enough that it won’t damage fine hair, and will leave a sleek shine in your tamed curls.

Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer

Ceramic and tourmaline make a great combination when it comes to blow-drying, as you can see with the Conair Tourmaline Ceramic Hair Dryer.

When it comes to heat styling tools, it’s a good idea to choose ceramic material. The heat created through ceramic is able to penetrate the hair shaft while maintaining the hydration in your tresses. Ceramic also heats up quickly and distributes heat evenly, so you can expose your locks to heat for a shorter amount of time. Better yet, reach for a ceramic hair dryer that includes Tourmaline, which gives your hair an extra shot of negative ions that can lead to smoother tresses.

This ceramic and tourmaline hair dryer from Conair is one of the best in the market, with three heat settings and two speed settings that allow people of all hair types to get the perfect blowout. When you’re done styling, blast your ends with the cool-shot function to seal those curls in place all day long.

Harry Josh Pro Hair Dryer 2000

The Harry Josh Pro Hair Dryer 2000 has been around for a while now, but it’s still one of the more powerful and high quality dryers on the market.

This hair dryer carries some pretty awesome specs. With 1,875 watts and 125 volts that will blow air at 80+ miles per hour, you get a pretty decent blast of power, and there’s also the option to use the cool-shot button for cool air. You can choose between ionic heat (which is better for sleeker styles) and non-ionic heat (which is preferred if you want maximum volume), making this dryer highly versatile for creating different looks.

While it’s not exactly a compact, travel-friendly dryer, you’ll likely want to throw it into your suitcase anyway on your next overnight trip. After using this dryer, you’ll never be able to go back to the ones provided in hotels. It’s no surprise this dryer was honored in Allure Magazine’s Best of Beauty Awards three years in a row.
