      This seems to have enough setting to do any hair drying job. I did not think it was super light or super heavy to hold

      I have purchased other BabylissPro dryers in the past and was not very happy with them, which was odd to me because I really like their straighteners, this dryer is the best I've ever owned!

              I would buy this product again. I have had a couple different brands of dryers and they just didn't seem to have the air drying power to get my hair dry. With the other brands the drying processes would take to long and I would walk out the door with still damp hair. No longer with this dryer. Fast, light and has lots of heat options.

                It's super lightweight and drying time feels like seconds. I could not believe that it worked so well. It comes with 3 nozzle sizes and a protective bag. Best money spent ever.

                    I received this for a Christmas gift, it Baby Bliss and it is an Italian Blow Dryer. My last Italian Blower Dryer finally gave and I wanted another one just like it, it was heavy but I like the way it dried my hair. So when I received the Baby Bliss and took it out of the box, I could believe how light it was and it dries hair quick. I definiately would but this. It is more expensive but to me it was money well spend and Ulta did accept a 20% coupon on it.

                        As a profressional stylist, this has been a game changer. It's crazy how light it is, therefore saving my shoulder and wrist strain. I used the Italia brava for years, but it was loud, really loud. This one is much quieter and performs just as well. Highly recommend.

                                No, this dryer does not have a swivel cord but the strain relief is large/long enough so the cord can move like a swivel. Please visit your nearest Ulta and check out the actual unit on the tester wall.

                                The BaBylissPRO Rapido dryer is the best choice for your hair. Since this dryer dries hair faster than the other blow dryers you listed, it causes less heat damage to your hair aiding in helping to keep your hair healthy. The Rapido has increased air power that dries hair faster than high heat alone and delivers unprecedented power and performance. The Rapido also has True ion generator which emits millions of negative ions to eliminate frizz and seal the hair cuticles for shiny, healthy looking hair.

                                The box your dryer was in was from an earlier shipment where we were still testing the 10,000 hours yet could not claim it yet. Once we did test the same model and passed the 10,000 hours we were then able to claim this so the 10,000 hours statement does appear on our newer/updated packaging. So the 10,000 hours does apply to the unit you've purchased.

                              I have straight, thick, long hair so fast drying with not a lot of damage, and reducing frizz are the most important factors for me. I'm deciding between the Brava and Rapido. It seems that both have the same wattage and both have nano titanium for ions- is that correct? Can you recommend one for me or highlight what might help me decide on one other than the weight? Thanks!

                              I have thick, dry, coarse, curly hair. I only use a hair dryer to diffuse. I had a T3 model (not even sure which though it is a dark gray color) that is finally giving up the ghost. I am looking at the Baby Bliss line. Which would be best dryer for diffusing only and the one that will be most likely to create soft, frizz free curls without drying out my curls?

                              Will the portofino concentrators and diffusers fit this dryer?

                                No, even though they are both from our BaBylissPRO Italian Dryer series the Portofino uses Slide-On attachments whereas the Rapido uses Snap-On attachments. The Snap-On diffuser is sold at Ulta as well.

                                YES!! The BaBylissPRO Rapido dryer is the best choice for your hair and needs. This Italian made dryer is the lightest (weighing less than 1lb), high-performance (lasting up to 10,000 hours) dryer in the world. Built with a Ferrari designed engine, the increased air power (2000 watts) dries hair faster than high heat alone which is less damaging to the hair by reducing its heat exposure and would work best with your hair type. The dryer also includes a true ion generator which will eliminate frizz and seal the hairs cuticle. As for noise, the dryer has a removable noise-reducing filter, creating a quieter working environment.
