I’m one of those people that travels with their hairdryer. I really don’t like using the ones provided in hotel rooms – they take forever to dry my hair, I feel like strip my hair of moisture and they are insanely loud. If you’re one of those people who loves their salon-quality hairdryer, but is also a jet-setter, then we’ve got 5 great options for you!
1. SEPHORA COLLECTION Mini Blast Travel Ionic Blow Dryer ($33, Sephora).
*I have this one and it is such a steal!* This is the best priced option by far and it is really lightweight and effective. It features 2 settings allow hair to dry in half the time, and a plug adapter enables easy powering when abroad. The dryer also came with a diffuser!
2. AMIKA Mighty Mini Dryer ($71.50, Sephora).
This one is just a compact version of their regular dryer. It features tourmaline-infused ceramic components that emit far-infrared heat and negative ions to eliminate frizz and deliver a super-smooth, shiny style, which is even better when you’re travelling!
3. Drybar Baby Buttercup Blow Dryer ($135, Nordstrom).
This dryer also features ionic technology, which increases shine, reduces frizz, and dramatically decreases dry time. Its powerful motor is designed with 2 temperature/heat settings for custom blowouts, while a cool shot button locks in styles. It weighs less than a pound, easily folds into a compact format to fit into any suitcase, and includes a cute ‘I’m Full of Hot Air!’ travel bag to protect against scuffs and scrapes.
4. GHD Copper Luxe Flight Travel Hairdryer ($149, Sephora).
This dryer has 2 variable heat settings, allowing you to blow dry the thickest head of hair and create voluminous styles with ease! It’s great for all hair types and helps you achieve salon-quality blowouts on the go!
5. T3 Featherweight Compact Folding Dryer ($150, Nordstrom).
*I have the full-sized version of this one and I love it!* This dryer uses infrared energy to heat hair evenly from the inside out for faster drying and lasting results as their trademarked technology delivers a high volume of ion-enriched air that dries large sections of hair in a fast and healthy manner. It features 2 speeds and heat settings to style all hair types and textures perfectly, a cool shot button for a burst of cool air that locks in any style for a smooth, sleek finish, and a tourmaline concentrator that directs enriched airflow for more precise drying.
