10 Vintage Hair Dryer Options That Are Perfect For Everyday Use

As Fleabag (everyone's favorite chaotic British anti-hero) once said: “Hair is everything. We wish it wasn’t so we could actually think about something else occasionally. But it is. It’s the difference between a good day and a bad day”. We think she’s right, even if it might be hard to admit that something so superficial could have such an effect on you.

Luckily for all of us, hair is not as cut-and-dry (pun intended) as height, per se. You can easily change your hairstyle, length, or color using a few good tools - and one of those tools is the hair dryer.

A quality hair dryer is an integral feature in the process of taking your hair day from bad to good. If you choose a hair dryer that is both efficient and effective, you can easily smooth and style your hair like a trained professional would in a fraction of the time (and a fraction of the cost).

You’ll want to get a hair dryer that is ergonomically designed to be lightweight and easy to hold but also has enough power to dry your hair without causing irreparable heat damage. It can be a fine line, but luckily there are loads of technological advances like infrared heads and innovative attachments that have made the hair dryer more suited to modern life. We’ve put together a list of our favorite hair dryers that are not only great at hairstyling but look good too!

Healthy for the hair - the infrared heat emitted by the ceramic covering, and the millions of negative ions, help close the hair cuticles keeping hair hydrated.

Is this hairdryer pretty or what? We wouldn’t mind spending hours doing our hair with a hairdryer that looked as good as this one. Powerful and silent, the ceramic Elchim Ionic Imperial Hair Dryer comes in a pastel blue-green color and is made using environmentally-minded recyclable materials.

This hair dryer has great ratings all around - but particularly from those who have frizzier and thicker hair that requires a more high-powered machine that won’t dry out their hair.

There could be no gloomy mornings with a bright yellow hair dryer like this from Elchim.

It’s stylish, eye-catching, and is guaranteed to leave your hair looking smooth and silky - no wonder it’s so popular!

The stunning hair dryer is available in a deep green and has a compact and lightweight design that would make it suitable for travelling, but it is still just as powerful as its larger counterparts with a powerful AC motor and a super fast rotating speed. Your hair will be left feeling silky smooth (and frizz free).
