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.

Did some research, reading reviews. I like this blow dryer, made in Italy. Good quality. Dries fast, I have thick hair. The reason for 4 stars is that it is noisy. I wear ear plugs when I dry my hair with this dryer which I have never had to do before. But I do like the dryer in every other way. I think it is worth the money to buy quality.
Not for me
H from Fort Smith, AR
This hair dryer was not for me. I did not like the position of the buttons on the handle; it's too easy to accidentally flip the switch to settings you don't want to use. The high heat setting was much too hot for my hair texture. The low heat setting was okay. However, while using the low heat setting, the setting kept cycling between cool, warm, and hot, even though I had not chosen a cool or hot setting. I did not like this dryer at all, and returned it to the local Ulta store.

Oh my goodness y'all! I had my revlon hair dryer for about 5 years and was happy with it. When it died I thought, why not spend a little money this go around? I DID NOT KNOW WHAT I WAS MISSING! I have fine, thin hair and this hair dryer gives me that oomph I need so I don't look sickly. It was a quick dry with a perfect middle heat and speed setting for thin hair. The fly always I thought were part of life are nearly invisible. It's about $100 more than my last one, but worth every penny.
Yes i would buy this blow dryer again and again
Kary from Los Angeles
I really like this product and was happy i was going to receive a gift with my purchase of it and i was really sad when i got home and the gift wasn't in my bag.
Absolutely worth it!
Zee Mak from Detroit
I was able to blow dry my hair with style in 15 minutes. If I just wanted to dry it without a style it took 5 minutes! So worth it
Love that the diffuser doesn't snap on
KarriB from Green Bay, WI
I like that the diffuser slides on rather than clicking into parts of the nozzle that usually just crack eventually anyone (the diffuser was bought separately).
The color is beautiful and it is very powerful, so much so that I am learning to use this dryer a bit. Hoping it lasts me a long time!
I love my new blow dryer. Lightweight and easier to use.

tiffani from vancouver
i have this hair down to nearly my butt. got my hair dried in under 10 minutes from practically soaking wet. love the wider concentrator. helps minimize frizz. cant speak to the longevity of the product because i have only used once. but worth every penny so far. im usually really cheap
I love everything about this dryer. it does a great job!
Ma Ma from Houston, Texas
The dryer is the best and I have absolutely no complaints
This product is a very disappointing purchase.
JB from Virginia
Usually my blow dryer straightens my hair. With this product my hair is frizzy and gets very curly after a couple of hours. I plan to return it and buy the same blow dryer I had before I splurged on this one after a friend recommended it.
Amy from Omaha
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
mariale from TX
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.
