Do you own a hair dryer? It sounds like a ridiculous question but after briefly polling some of my friends I found out that many of them didn’t have one. They owned other heat styling tools – straighteners, tongs, hot rollers ….. but not a hair dryer? It intrigued me and had me curious about what hair dryer I would recommend to someone looking to buy their first. My lightbulb thought was to go back to basics and review some new entry-level hair dryers, and I’m starting with the 2000W hairdryer from VS Sassoon’s Luminous Collection.
- The gold finish on the body makes this hair dryer look fun and stylish. It comes with matching gold hair elastics, so this would be a great gift idea for a teenager who wants to start blow drying their hair or someone looking for an occasional use hair dryer.
- It’s a lightweight hair dryer so there isn’t much weight to bear and the handle is slender so it’s ideal for smaller hands as well.
- The nozzle is shorter than most standard hairdryers but it’s slightly longer when you add the included concentrator nozzle.
- The concentrator nozzle is slightly curved outwards on the edges, so it’s not really for blow dry styling but rather for directional drying. It was able to smooth my cuticles and not cause too much frizz when used on hair without styling products, but with that nozzle I wasn’t able to blowdry my hair dead-straight but I could paddle brush and do finger waves.
- I’m surprised how much power there is from this compact dryer. I expected 2000W to not give much grunt but it did blow dry my hair (thin) and my mothers (medium to thick) without much effort. I found this to be a good dryer for when I’m just drying my hair off after washing.
