Looking for the Perfect Dryer? Look No Further!

Every morning this week, I have been crossing my fingers and biting my lip while drying my hair - I can hear it - I just KNOW my blow dryer is going to bite the dust any day now. What's a girl to do?

Hairdressers everywhere know exactly what I am talking about - you have a dryer you love, and if it dies, there should be a funeral. But what do you do? Stick with what you know and love, or look for something new, shiny, and potentially even more perfect that your dying dryer?

As much as I have been a very loyal Babyliss appliance user for 10+ years, I am thinking about going in a new direction with my replacement dryer - only because I don't think I can pass this one up! Check it out:

Ultra Smooth Professional Hair Dryer /1875 Watts by CRICKET

Why Ultra Smooth? Because it has a outlet filter INFUSED with Argan Oil and Keratin Protein! Now, I know you stylists are MUCH more talented with a brush than I am, but I can't imagine that you would turn down any extra help you were offered! I also love that the nozzle is a bit shorter - I find dryers shaped like this are easier to handle.

I think Cricket has knocked it out of the park with this one. Check out all the other features:

Features:

  • Argan Oil & Keratin Protein infused outlet filter
  • High heat, high power professional dryer
  • Wind speeds up to 59 MPH
  • Compact & lightweight design (only 16 ounces)
  • Professional DC motor
  • 3 Heat / 2 speed settings
  • Cool shoot button
  • Concentrator attachment
  • 1875 Watts
  • 9' Cord
What do you think? I think I will give it a whirl - who's with me?

VROOOM VROOOOM...Babyliss PRO's NEW Volare Dryers: THE PROFESSIONAL LUXURY DRYER WITH A FERRARI-DESIGNED ENGINE

Yes, you read that correctly! Babyliss PRO (a world-wide leader in the beauty industry) has (oddly enough) paired up with Ferrari (yes...THAT Ferrari!) to design the high-performance, luxury hair dryers in the Volare collection.


According to www.babylissus.com, these dryers feature a "Ferrari-designed V12 engine," an ultra-efficient, high-speed, turbo-powered engine designed for maximum airflow, minimum weight, and low vibration, all of which delivers faster drying for the salon professional with a "need for speed!"


Ferrari-Designed V12 Engine: Designed for Performance & Longevity

  • V12 Engine: Offers smooth run and high torque for superior performance
  • World's 1st Ball-bearing blow dryer engine: Significantly reduce friction and vibration for a smoother, high-performance operation
  • Extended Engine Brushes: Provides up to 300% longer engine life than that of typical dryer motors
  • Ferrari Engine: Produces more torque and less disruption of air to produce greater air pressure and stronger airflow
  • Precision Insert-Molded Construction: Improves rotor stability and, in combination with the ball-bearing design, results in a higher-performance engine
  • Turbo Power: Increases air pressure up to 15% for faster drying
The Babyliss PRO Volare is available in 2 sizes, and each size is available in 2 colors....Black, and Ferrari Red, of course! 

This full-size dryer delivers intense air pressure and includes a turbo button for an instant burst of extra-powerful air for high-speed drying. Two concentrator nozzles in different widths come standard with the Volare V1, and it features a nano titanium-infused grille for superior heat and a tri-port ionic generator to maximize hair's shine.
  • Ferrari-designed V12 engine
  • Turbo-boost button
  • Tri-Port ionic generator
  • Nano Titanium technology
  • 6 heat/speed controls
  • 2 ultra-thin accessory nozzles
  • Made in Italy
  • 2000 watts
  • Limited 4-year warranty

Volare V2: Mid-Size Dryer
The Volare V2 is an ultra-efficient mid-size dryer that delivers the same superior air pressure as the V1. The V2 includes a turbo button for an instant burst of extra-powerful air for high-speed drying. Two concentrator nozzles in different widths come standard with the Volare V2, and it features a nano titanium-infused grille for superior heat and a tri-port ionic generator to maximize hair's shine.
  • Ferrari-designed V12 engine
  • Turbo-boost button
  • Tri-Port ionic generator
  • Nano Titanium technology
  • 6 heat/speed controls
  • 2 ultra-thin accessory nozzles
  • Made in Italy
  • 2000 watts
  • Limited 4-year warranty


I have to admit, at first glance, I thought..."C'mon now, are you serious?" However, after some thought, I am totally intrigued! Plus, if it dries hair faster, with less effort, a $200 FERRARI engine is definitely worth it - especially for busy salons drying head of hair after head of hair, all day long. Maybe it is my fascination with cars and driving fast, but I think the collaboration between Babyliss PRO and Ferrari is cool as heck! What do you think? Cool, or a bit much?
