How To Find The Perfect Blowdryer For YOU

Photographed by Erin Yamagata.
By now, we've figured out that all blowdryers are not created equal. What works just swell for a girl with short, fine hair may not be as great for someone with a long, thick mane (and vice versa). Plus, trying to find the hair-drying gadget of your dreams can be almost as daunting as going shopping for that perfect-fitting bra: a lot of time and money spent and just about zero fun.

To take the drama out of the process, we had three staffers with different hair lengths, types, and budgets test out some of the best reviewed dryers on the market. Find out which ones have earned their stellar reputations, ahead. Your morning blowout just got a whole lot easier.
