With salons banning blow-drying services thanks to Covid-19, find the best hair dryer to use at home.

Did you know that because of Covid-19, some salons are banning blow-drying services to avoid the airflow of germs? As reported in Vogue, Van Michael salons in Atlanta is one of those chains observing this policy. If blowouts are a regular thing for you, you may go home disappointed. At this time when salons have limited hours and services, or in some places, remain closed, your best bet is to get yourself the best hair dryer. With tons of options out in the market, let us try to narrow it down.

What Hair Dryer Suits You? 

The following are the best hair dryers compiled by Allure, Vogue and Good Housekeeping:

Harry Josh Pro Tools Pro Dryer 2000

Allure and Vogue are big fans of this pastel green hair dryer, while Good Housekeeping recommends its more compact version, Ultra Light Pro Dryer. Touted to be Brazilian supermodel Gisele Bundchen's favorite, this hair dryer is handmade in France and won Allure's Best of Beauty Award for three years in a row. What Allure raves about is its unique ability to switch between ionic and non-ionic heat. Use ionic heat it you want sleek hair, non-ionic is you're after volume.

Bio Ionic GrapheneMX Brushless Professional Hair Dryer

If you have fine hair, this one is for you. Without a thick blanket of hair to protect your scalp from heat, blow drying can sometimes cause burns. This hair dryer from Bio Ionic is effective but mild on both the hair and scalp. It also comes with a 10-year motor warranty.

Cricket Ultra Smooth Professional Hair Dryer

For thick hair that can be dense and coarse, this Cricket model heats up to 150°F and that makes it a breeze to dry the thickest of manes. It's also compact and light, weighing in at 1.5 pounds. Even if you have a lot of hair to go through, you will not get stiff arms from holding this up.

DevaCurl Dryer and Devafuser

With its uniquely shaped diffuser, this hair dryer is perfect for curly hair. Five prongs and 50 air vents direct air were designed to target every curl and coil. It is also ionic to cut down frizz which curly hair is prone to.

Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The most expensive of the lot is the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer. With three speeds and four heat settings, it has the strongest airflow and as Good Housekeeping reports, dried hair faster than any model tested by their Beauty Lab. Like, ever. At a hefty price of $400, it costs as much as your monthly rent. Is it worth it? All three beauty magazines say yes, especially if your hair is resistant to heat styling. If you have fine and manageable hair, save your money for something else on the list.

Revlon 1875W Compact Travel Hair Dryer

This small and effective travel hair dryer is the least expensive on the list. It's perfect for trips abroad with its dual voltage and the handle folds up so you can easily stash it in your suitcase. One can only hope that travel restrictions will ease up soon and you can bring this baby anywhere you want.
