Most Helpful Positive Review Great Time Saver and Hair Looks Great
I am happy I chose this dryer! I had a different brand but high end dryer from a major beauty supply shop that lasted me 7 years. I was overwhelmed when that one broke and I needed to find a replacement. There are so many on the market now! Since I know the difference in quality of hair appliances DOES make the hair healthier and save time, I decided to go a step higher in the hairdryer options this time. I initially bought a T3. Not a bad dryer but I didn't see the $200 difference. I read that brand's reviews to find it had durability and warranty issues so I returned it. On to the next option...
The 'salon' I go to is a high end beauty school. They not only sell Babyliss appliances but all the students are taught with their entry level model dryer. I saw this one on special with much better reviews so I gave it a try. I picked this one over their other model with a Ferrari motor, no joke! A new Ulta store has a tester section for hair appliances in their store and compared to even more expensive dryers, it seems the most powerful and easy to use of Ulta's dryer choices.
All I can say is I am pleased! Money well spent and my hair looks great in top drytime speed, even a couple days after initially styling. And I can forgo the 'secondary' appliance styling--that is the real test! I hope this one lives up to its durability because it is a great dryer worth every single penny.
One note is that the diffusers could fit a bit more snug. Not an issue to affect the quality but I am rough on my equipment and like to store mine in the drawer ready for use and it might come off or loosen more than I'd like.
Most Helpful Critical Review Wasn't working out for me
I have very naturally curly hair and like to wear my hair curly. I own a Babyliss Pro Porcelain Ceramic dryer about 5 years old that I love. I wanted to try an upgrade, so I got this, along with the diffuser they recommend. The hair dryer itself is nice. It is VERY powerful, in fact, it was too much for my curls even with a diffuser and on a lower heat/blow setting. It left lots of small knots/tangles even on the lowest setting. I tried to use the dryer 4 times with different hair products and it still turned out the same- super puffy at the root and lots of frizzy/tangled curls. The diffuser prongs are also very short and the cup of the diffuser is small (and I have a lot of hair) so I went back to my old universal Conair diffuser on my Babyliss Pro. I took both of them back for a full refund. I love Babyliss products, but unless you are blowing your thick hair out straight I cannot recommend this for everyday, curly-girl styling.

Gets my hair dry way faster and with less frizz than my old cheap hair dryer. I have a lot of waist length hair and rarely dry it because it took forever with my old dryer. And I I would be so sweaty afterwards. Took me a minute to figure out the settings. But I'm really glad I invested the money in this dryer. Expect I will style my hair way more often now.
Best hair dryer I ever had !
JRip from New Jersey
I don't write reviews but I have to say this is worth every penny! Every time I use to blow dry my hair with my old dryer , my hair was always frizzy and very dry . I tried all products and nothing really helped. I'm decided to invest in a new hair dryer and I am happy I did ! My hair is smooth , my ends are not dry, and my overall hair looks healthy!
Dried my hair faster
luvlexnj from vineland nj
Kind of pricey, but did dry my hair faster, like all the features.
Love this dryer! No Frizz here!
Christine from Oklahoma
This is the best dryer ever in this price range. It had even Titanium heat that helps smooth and style without Frizz. I had one just like this, it burned out after about 5 years. I tried another brand, hated it and came back to this one...it really is the best! Just like an old friend! Has easy removable filter for easy cleaning, so hopefully this new design will help it last even longer than the last one.
I love it

I blow my hair quickly, and my hair is amazing! I love the results 😍
Worth the price!!!
Shana from Bethlehem, PA
I am so amazed by this hair dryer. There really really is a difference. I guess it's all in the science. The ions? Titanium? I don't know. But I used the same products and dry my hair the same way and it is shiner and softer than any other hair dryer I've ever used. I get no frizz and my hair feels amazing. I reviewed so many hair dryers and am glad I settled on this one. It is a well made machine that goes above and beyond. Salon hair at home. Love love love it!!!!
Love this! My new favorite hair dryer
Blueeyedgirl from Lawrence, KS
I have thick and coarse hair and this hair dryer dried in 10-15.mins and it only took 20 mins to straighten my hair. Normally it takes 25 mins to hair dryer and then an hour to straighten my hair.
Excellent blow dryer!!!!
Sara from Greenville, SC
The best blow dryer I have ever owned. Worth every penny. I used to hate blow drying my hair because it took forever, but this has exceeded all of my expectations.
HAVE HAD FOR YEARS AND STILL LOVE!!
Net971 from PA
I have had this dryer for YEARS!! I had tried other expensive dryers and was not impressed, literally returned them, and bought this one. It is a beast and I still love it! Fast, but not damaging.
I love it.
Adri from New jersey
I use it after I washed my hair. Medium heat is enough to dry my hair even though my hair is abundant and long.
The Reviews Don't Lie
Ash from KY
This is a great blow dryer. I didn't have to straighten after use, and my hair was sleek and smooth. I didn't find it too heavy. I bought a Harry Josh prior to this and wasn't too impressed. Initially there was a slight burning smell from the dryer (wasn't my hair) just the newness I suppose. Go ahead and get this!
Worth every penny!
ChrisE from Orange Park, FL
I saw this dryer at my mail salon They were using it to dry nails and sanitized areas to keep customers 6 feet apart. I was impressed with the power of its air flow and heat. I could tell it was a quality dryer. I was right, fast drying and frizz free results!
Crystal from OH
So I'll admit- I've never had a high quality blow dryer before. I've had mine for nearly 10 years and I thought it did what they all do & the magic was in the styling tools and creams. Well until I noticed my hair stylist got my hair blow dried without being frizzy at all like it was for me. So I searched for days different blow dryers and went with this one and I'm so happy. The difference in my hair is amazing. It smooths it without frizz and is light and quick. Can't believe I waited until 27 to get a good one!
Great hair dryer!
Lisa C from Maryland
Love this hair dryer! I use a hair dryer to straighten my curly hair so I am very picky. I have never used this brand before but decided to try it based on reviews and I am so glad that I did. The dryer gets hot enough to straighten without frizz but doesn't fry my hair. My hair feels soft and still has body when using this. I don't even have to go over it with a flat iron like I've had to with others. Would definitely recommend
DebSancho from San Antonio
I have thick curly hair. I Have a hard time finding a blow dryer that is hot enough to dry and straighten my hair with no frizz. My current hairdryer died and I thought I'd have to go through several dryers before I found anything that did the job. I did lots of research because I don't want to spend hours frying my hair! And of course all dryers promise they are great but not all are great with hair like mine!
This hairdryer dried my hair in 20 mins which is good time For all my hair.
My hair was super shiny and full of body!
I LOVE LOVE LOVE this hairdryer! And I love all the shine and body in my hair.
This is my favorite hair dryer ever.

I especially like the two control buttons with multi-levels of function.

This product is very good.
Great Hair dryer
hollyannyo from Cincinnati OH
Its such a great hair dryer. I can easily blow dry my waist length hair in under 30 minutes. It is pretty heavy however.
Love this hairdryer!
Dawn from Gardnerville NV
I love that I can switch temperature settings with the same hand holding the dryer. The cold air actually cools very quickly.
Love this dryer! Cuts down on time and leaves smooth
KristinM921 from Long Island, NY
I chemically straighten my hair but still blow dry it, especially when the roots come in. This dryer helps me spread out the treatments because it is so easy to blow out my roots. The attachment allows you to get close to the roots.
I owned a lower model BabyBliss prior to this. After 6 years it broke, I decided to upgrade and really glad that I did. I like this one so much more.
Cortney D. from Phoenix, AZ
I've been contemplating on buying a more expensive hair dryer for about a year now. I've gone through 3 under 40$ dryers and my hair suffered from it.
I really wanted to splurge and get the dyson, but I knew I needed to try a 100$ price range one first. IM SO HAPPY I DID! I rarely write reviews but honestly I love this one. My hair is thick and frizzy so I have to blow dry then curl/straighten. This dried my hair faster, and my hair wasn't as frizzy as usual! I'm now thinking of getting this brands curling iron. The dyer is a little on the heavy side but doesn't bother me whatsoever. I like the small arm workout. And the buttons don't get in the way for me (right handed).
Definitely recommend this one!
Love my Babyliss Portofino
rookster from Lake Wylie, SC
I had seen this in the store before everything was closed up due to COVID. I read a lot of reviews. I decided to give it a try and am so glad I did. I have only had it for a week so I will update this if my view changes but I LOVE this dryer. Drying time is greatly reduced. I have naturally curly hair that I straighten, so to find something that made my hair feel smooth without the frizz was great. The heat does not feel as hot as my previous dryer but it dried faster, telling me most likely less damage to my hair. I wish it came with a diffuser so if I wanted curly, but I believe they sell that attachment for this dryer so I will get one.
I'm in love
Jess from New York
This is my first time buying an expensive blow dryer. I had the Revlon brush blow dryer before this one. And WOWWWW. Using this makes my hair silky smooth... Such a difference. Even my boyfriend noticed how soft my hair was. It works great, dries my hair quickly. I would 100% recommend this! I'm so happy I spent the money on it
Rebecca from South Carolina
This hair dryer cut my drying time in half and leaves my hair feeling so silky and soft!!
ItsMeCC from TN
Only used it once so far but my coarse, frizzy was nowhere near as bad as usual. Drying time was shorter for sure & my hair's is pretty thick. I'm loving it so far!
