The other morning I had a total hair disaster, I washed my hair like every morning but this time mid way through drying my hair my blow dryer decided to have a total hissy fit on me, One minute I was drying my hair and the next the blow dryer itself was emitting a plume of smoke (Not Good!) and then there was nothing, It was dead. That afternoon I dragged and my fiancé along to our nearest shopping centre and headed to Boots as I've always noticed that they have a large selection of electrical products and often have really good promotional offers and best of all If I purchased anything I could use my Advantage card and increase my card balance too.
Now when looking for a Blow Dryer one of the most important features which I look for is the power from the motor out-put, I have very long hair, mid way down my back so need a powerful dryer to be able to dry it quickly and not be sitting there for an absolute age trying to get it dry. If its lower than a 2000AC then I'm not interested When I got into Boots I was confronted by a vast selection of different brands and there were many different power outputs available but that meant I was able to narrow the list down by eliminating those that didn't offer that higher 2000plus output. so out of the remaining few I instantly fell in love with one, you could say that it was jumping out at me wanting to be bought and that admittedly was primarily because of the packaging which was very appealing and very eye catching...
The Blow dryer which I purchased was the Mark Hill limited edition pink and black Leopard print Salon professional style and shine RAW power dryer (what a mouthful). Although I will admit that as well as the power output which it was offering the colour and design of the product had something to do with it too. I have a huge obsession with anything pink so seeing this dryer in its matching pink and black leopard print box you could say is what attracted me to this product, it was very eye catching to say the least.( This product is also available in the limited Edition Black and White Zebra print too just so you know)
Now Mark Hill is one of the most successful hairdressers in the UK at this time, His technical ability, his flair and creativity have earned him many awards over the past few years, he believes in being able to work with what you have got and making the most of your hair, being able to create beautiful and wearable styles that can be repeated in general day to day life and in 2005 as well as a successful salon business he branched out into Mark Hill Hair Cosmetics and Mark Hill Heat Stylers which turned into an international success too.
The product itself comes in a box which is black and pink in design, it has a solid block of black colour around the bottom and to the top a black and pink leopard print design. To the front left corner a model is pictured boasting that perfect hair we all dream of and to the top right a small window that allows you to see the product inside and to see that the dryer carries on that same black and pink leopard print theme .The right side of the box lists the contents as does the back along with the dryer's specifications too. To the left side is an endorsement by Mark Hill and photograph of him.
Within the box a clear plastic housing holds the dryer itself along with the three additional nozzle attachments. The box also contains a celebrity style guide full of tips and advice for those stylish up to date looks although I will admit that this found itself in the bin within a couple of days as it was more promoting his other products than actually telling you how to achieve those up to date looks...
The Mark Hill Raw power dryer itself is a salon professional dryer ,it boasts a 2000AC motor for super fast drying, just perfect for what I needed as it meant I would have my hair dry in no time at all. It has two different speed settings and three different heat settings and also has a cool shot button too. The Dryer has a 3m long salon length cord which is great if the plug socket is not close by you or if you need to move around the room for some reason or another. The Dryer also comes with three different nozzle attachments, a black volume nozzle for giving your hair that extra volume and lift and then a small and larger black concentrator nozzle which are suitable for smooth, sleek, straight results which I found absolutely brilliant. My hair has a natural curl to it so with the combination of the ionic technology this blow dryer uses, the different heat settings, high power and the larger of the two concentrator nozzles I am able to blow dry my hair practically straight achieving smooth, sleek, frizz free hair and only find myself needing to use my GHDs to finish off the style, instead of having to completely straighten all of my hair like I have in the past taking absolutely forever.
All in all this is a really great Blow dryer, its stylish, funky and fun with the colour and leopard print design and the dryer itself delivers outstanding results, the dryer is suitable for all hair types with its different heat settings. It's really cut down the time which it takes me to blow dry my hair which as a Mum to a three year old I don't always have that much time on my hands. The only grumbles I really have concerning this product is the fact that its recommended that the concentrator nozzles are not used in conjunction with the highest heat setting or the highest power setting although I still do anyway but sometimes find the nozzle being blown off when I use the highest power setting as it's not a completely snug fit directly onto the dryer itself. Other than that I love it.
Now this Blow dryer has an original RRP of £54.99, a more higher end price range for a Blow dryer but I was lucky enough on the day to go into Boots to purchase one and find this product on promotional offer at ½ price so I was able to pick it up for £27.99..An absolute bargain so make sure you look out for these sort of offers as they are out there :D Overall a really great blow dryer which delivers great quality and great results
