I’ve always been a drugstore hairdryer kind of girl. For $15 I could have something compact enough to travel with, that did the job well enough and was cheap enough to replace when it inevitably broke after 8-12 months of use. Now it’s important to note that I’ve got really thick, long and difficult hair so my dryers always get a ton of use.
When I was sent the BaByliss PRO Nano Titanium Volare V2 dryer (that’s a mouthful), I was expecting to like it, but not more than my drugstore dryers. I honestly believed there wasn’t a difference, and thought people who bought more expensive dryers were morons and slaves to marketing!!! Umm…I was wrong.
With my trusty $15 dryer, it takes me between 20-25 minutes to dry my hair depending on how wet it is. When I used the BaByliss, my same routine was cut down to a little over 9 minutes. I timed myself, really. Thanks to a Ferrari designed V12 AC engine and a tri-port ionic generator the BaByliss ensures you’re getting a wildly fast and smooth blowout every time.
Ringing in at $195 on Beauty Stop Online (on sale from $269.99), it’s not the least expensive dryer out there, but you can literally see and feel the difference. And for those of you who travel a bunch, the dryer has a really nice weight to it and a compact size that makes tossing it into an overnight bag a non-issue.
If you’re like me and have been using crappy blow dryers all your life, this is your wake-up call. If you’ve been on the hunt for the perfect dryer that delivers speed and style, search no more.
The BabyBliss PRO Nano Titanium Volare V2 is on sale at Beauty Stop Online, so you might as well pick it up for the lower price if you’re going to indulge!
