One of the best feelings ever is having a great hair day. However, that awesome sensation often comes with a price tag of a professional blowout. And if you’re doing it yourself, flawless hair requires patience, mirror and brush skills — and lots of upper body strength. Sound familiar? It’s no wonder we tend to pull our hair up into a bun, especially during busy weekdays.
But that doesn’t always have to be the case. A shiny, bouncy, look-at-me blowout can be achieved at home without much fuss. The secret? It’s all about the hair dryer.
These days, the best hair dryers are easy to use, don’t weigh a ton and work faster than ever to fight frizz, so hair is left feeling soft and looks healthier and shinier than ever. With so many options in different price ranges, we figured we’d give you a leg up on your shopping research to help you decide which blow dryer best fits your hair type, budget and needs. Check out our picks for the eight best hair dryers in the slideshow above and make those good hair days come true.
