This Revlon dryer is insanely popular online and has become a best seller for good reason. It achieves smooth blowouts in half the time it would take you with a blow dryer and round brush.

3. Dyson, Airwrap Styler
When Dyson dropped the Airwrap people went insane over the styler. Surpassing even the popularity of their original hairdryer the Airwrap was talked about in the beauty world for months. The styler is available in three different kits with varying attachable heads and one kit that includes it all. A more travel-friendly styling tool, it comes with the following attachments: A small blow-dry head, round brush and 2 paddle brushes. The set also includes two 1.2-inch barrels (for fine and coarse hair), two 1.6-inch barrels, that are the main star attraction.
The barrels suck your hair in, which causes your hair to wrap around it. Because of the technology, there are two different barrels for each side of your head. I know it sounds like a lot of attachments but it still takes up less space than both a hair-dryer and a curling wand. Altogether, the Airwrap boasts of giving you great shining results while being less damaging for your hair by enforcing less heat than a traditional curling iron.
