I dry my hair every day so I need a hairdryer that will be powerful and reliable. Having extremely thick hair it takes forever to blow dry and straighten so having a hairdryer which is of salon quality is really important to me. When my previous hairdryer conked out about a year ago I didn’t want to venture too far away from what I was used to so I settled for another Toni & Guy hairdryer and after a little looking around I liked the sound of this particular model.

Prices vary depending on where you look, but at the time of buying it it was fairly new out and I paid £35. You can pay around £25 now. Most hair dryers offer the same functions so I won’t bore you and write over excessively on the details as they are pretty standard. The main ones are the 3 different heat settings, this is handy as I use the hottest for me own hair (I know I probably shouldn’t!) but use the coolest setting for my daughters hair. There are only 2 speed settings (I had been used to 3) but to be honest I just want to dry my hair and quick so again, I only ever use one setting and that is the fastest speed.

The 1700 watt motor gives it a salon feel power, and I guess the different heat and speed settings are to be used to give you the look you want but I’m useless with styling my own hair and use a hair dryer to simply dry it and then straighteners or curling tongs to style it.

The cool shot button is handy to fix a style once you have finished it and although I only use this once in a while, it does actually work. Attachments that come with the hair dryer include a concentrator nozzle which is really slim and a diffuser which is really handy.

The hairdryer is quite compact in style. The previous Toni & Guy one I had was massive and quite heavy, but this one is lightweight and easy to handle while still giving the same effects. It has a hang up hook as well which I like although since we have moved a few months ago, I haven’t had the hook put back under my ‘beauty’ shelf, but it is a handy little extra that again gives it a salon feel. The 3 meter cord is another feature which is so worthwhile. I hate it when hair styling equipment such as straighteners / hair dryers etc. doesn’t come with a long cord, so this is really important for me.

In the box with the hair dryer is a handy little style guide full of hints and tips. I really liked this as a little extra, especially given that the product is from the well known salon Toni & Guy. I normally bin things like this but I must admit that I did spend an hour or two playing around with my hair after gaining some ‘inspiration’ from this little book!

All in all a great hairdryer that is light enough to take with you on your travels but versatile enough to use for day to day styling.

Imagine my disappointment to discover not every salon had someone called Toni and/or Guy in it.
