What To Look For In A Good Blow Dryer

Not all blow dryers are created equal. A good blow dryer can make achieving a fabulous hairstyle a much easier endeavor. Here we’ll give you some hot tips on how to choose the best blow dryer for you.

Over weight blow dryers can be a pain in the arms. When choosing a blow dryer, especially if your style takes a while to blow out, a lighter model is definitely better. Wattage is another important factor to consider.

Look for a blow dryer with wattage of 1500 to 1875 in order to get enough air flow to dry your hair in a speedy fashion.

Different heat settings will also make styling your hair much easier. You’ll need a high setting to quickly remove excess moisture from the hair and a lower setting to switch to for more precise styling. A blow dryer with a cool shot button is a bonus because a shot of cool air will help set difficult styles such as flips or side swept bangs.
