The fact that hair dryers are an essential gadget is something that almost anyone with hair can agree on. If your hair is wet, you quickly blow it out without any fuss. Ever been late for that important meeting but slept in? Just brush your hair out with your handy hair dryer and a comb and you’re literally done. In need of a few good stylish curls for that fancy night out but don’t have the time or the money to step in the salon? Your dryer’s got you sorted.
A good hair dryer can absolutely work wonders for your overall look and what’s best is that like most other electric products, a hair dryer is unisex which means it is great for both men and women. As long as you’ve got hair on your head and a need for some maintenance, the mighty hair dryer has you covered! However, if you are on the look-out for a handy tool which is better suited for travel then you have stumbled upon the right article for that, since we are listing out 9 of the best hair dryers that you can take with you to far off paces such as Europe.
In terms of features that set these hair dryers apart from average or conventional models, there is always the size of the device to keep in mind as it becomes physically impossible to lug around a huge device wherever you go. Most travellers prefer to pack light and that is precisely why it is important that all users do their due research on these specifications before making a purchase. If you are looking for a compact and portable hair dryer that also offers universal charging options which are a must for international travel, we recommend that you stick around till the end of this list!
Best Travel Hair Dryer For Europe
The first product on our list today is the Baby Liss Nano Titanium hair dryer which is a personal favourite of ours as well as Baby Liss has been in the hair drying business for decades, always improving upon their innovations in the latest technology. This device has specialized Nano titanium grills which reduce the amount of friction and static electricity is produced due to the heat from your blow dryer.
Added alongside this, is the wonderful ionic technology which we feel should be a standard for all hair dryers today. Earlier on, more and more users were struggling with traditional hair dryers as they caused a lot of frizz and unwanted volume, especially in humid hair. However with the advent of ionic technology that all changed. This feature transfers negative ions onto the surface of the hair which displace and neutralize any positive ions which may cause unwanted frizz due to the presence of static electricity. This results in absolutely stunning and smooth hair which is not only shinier but also appears healthier.
Another excellent feature that this device offers is the fact that it has an impressive 6 speed and heat settings. This is exciting because most devices just offer 4 or 5. This means that you have greater room for customization and the freedom to style, dry and shape your hair as you please.
This device also features a detachable filter guard at the rear end which can easily collect all the lint and hair so you can clean it our periodically, thus ensuring that your hair dryer works smoother for longer. There are also other hair drying standards such as a cool shot button which gives out bursts of cold air that lock in your hair styling and a concentrator nozzle for variety.
Next, we have the Jinri hair dryer which has been specifically designed to meet all your travel safe needs. A lightweight and a compact design, this device also supports the negative ion technology which is helped along by its ceramic tourmaline grill which basically works to reduce the amount of static electricity which is caused by the interference of positive ions and smoothens out hair leaving you with more manageable locks which you can style, prep and dry out without ending up with frizzy hair.
The great thing about this design is that this model works on all voltages between 125 volts to 250. This means that it supports a very wide array of settings and its universal adapter compatibility makes it the best product to use abroad. Never again will you have to sit around and be unable to charge your device when you need it the most.
It only works on one heat and speed setting for 250 volts, which is a little disappointing as it is comparatively lower than its competition. However, we appreciate the other two heat settings which work wonderfully at the lowest voltage and that’s also fine as lower heats are far better for hair styles anyways. After you are done styling and prepping your hair, simply press the cool shot button and lock in your chosen style for a long time!
Our favourite feature about this device is definitely the 1 to 2 year warranty that its manufacturers offer which invokes a lot of trust and reliability on their part regarding their device.
Moving on, we are about to review a very special device which is one from a brand that has made its mark on all things hair related for decades now. Leading in superior technological innovations and advancements, the name Revlon invokes feelings of trust and quality all wrapped up in one.
The Revlon 1875 Watts is no exception. A heavy duty product which comes in such a lightweight and portable body that you would think it was built for the individuals on the go. However even though it can be put in your hand carry and be forgotten about, it is a truly versatile device that can be used at home as well as while travelling.
Talking about the design first, it looks and feels like a very premium device but you will absolutely not believe the price you get it at! Getting an extremely affordable price and a premium product? You really must have hit the jackpot. While we are reviewing the model in black, this device comes in 2 striking colours including a bright hot pink and a creamy mustard yellow, perfect to showcase your own individuality!
There are only 2 settings for speed and heat which is not that great as we are used to there being at least 4 but we aren’t too mad as the performance far exceeds our expectations.
We are now on to another incredible product which is the Con Air 1875 which comes in a luxurious grey colour which exudes sophistication and elegance all wrapped up within an extremely portable, lightweight and compact solution for all your hair drying needs.
Since the handle of this dryer folds up easily, this makes it even more convenient to carry around and is perfect for those users constantly on the go. You can store it in the tiniest of places and bags and simply forget about it till you need to use it. It also features a pretty sturdy chemical resistant 5.5 foot long charging cord which makes charging in hotels and airports super easy. Also it charges at dual voltages which makes it a great choice if you want to travel all over European countries.
There are only 2 speed and heat settings which are not that impressive for us since we are used to seeing products that cater to even more outlets for customization and styling but since this is the only real flaw in the device, we can let that pass. Although there might be more benefits to including more styling options as during travel, a person has almost no access to any professional services and therefore will be limited by this flaw.
It does however feature a cool shot button which locks in your curls, straight hair and all other styles so that your hard work does not go to waste.
We are now on to a relatively unknown product which we felt was necessary to add because not only is it an extremely durable and powerful device but as the name suggests, is also an extremely lightweight and portable device.
We are talking about the Micro Featherweight by the T3 brand and ever since we came upon this unknown brand, we cannot have enough of its unique performance and abilities. As the manufacturer claims, this mini device packs a really powerful punch and we are absolutely here for it as this makes it a formidable partner for all you travel lovers! First of all, you are going to be in an unknown land with absolutely no access to your tried and tested salon professionals and yet you need to be looking your best for all those photos you will upload to Instagram, right? That’s where the Featherweight comes in as it is your one stop solution with ionic technology that gives you that salon smooth hair styling that you could not achieve with regular hair dryers. The negative ions displace and neutralize the positive ones on the surface of your skin and lead to silkier and shinier hair. This also in turn reduces the potential damage of heat by locking in the moisture in your hair and canceling out any frizz that may be caused by the hot air flow.
The handle of the device also folds down easily so the product virtually becomes even smaller than it already is so you can pack it up and it will take the least amount of space possible. The major problem about travelling abroad is where does one charge their device? There is always some issue with the adapters and charging ports but not to worry with this product as it caters to a universal dual adaptability.
You also get the coolest extra accessories along with the hair dryer such as the cutest tote bag in which you cans tore it, a 9 foot long cord which is insane and means that you can even charge at the airport and of course you get a wonderful little diffuser which provides a more uniform amount of heat all over the hair. This not only helps with styling but also prevents possible heat damage.
Again, with this device perhaps the only let down is that the number of styling and speed options are so limited. There are only 2 heat and speed settings so we aren’t all that pleased.
Andis products are some of our most favourite ones, especially when it comes to high powered and heavy duty devices that come in the smallest packages. You don’t have to buy a huge product to get the best performance and the Andis Micro Turbo is a real testament to that saying. Powered by an impressive 1600 watts, the Micro Turbo is a force to be reckoned with as it can meet all your hair styling and drying needs at the mere flick of a button. Not only is the device built with a really premium body and design but it also offers a neat array of features and knick knacks that make it a really desirable device. It is small and lightweight which obviously makes it a great companion for travelling purposes but it also is equipped with a dual voltage adaptability which means that no matter where you travel in the world, you will always be able to charge your device with absolute ease and comfort.
The device is also super cool and quiet which means that you will not disturb anyone around you when you use it. Most often than not, when you are staying at different hotels, the walls are not nearly as thick as you would like them to be and this feature will ensure that you can style and dry your hair whenever you please without disturbing anyone else. Even the motor has the least amount of annoying vibrations so you have complete control over the device as you style your hair.
There is also a really unique life line shock protector which is in built into the device that is great as sometimes charging sockets abroad are really unreliable and might be faulty. If that is ever the case, you will be safe and secure!
We are really glad for this next device as we have become really tired of electronic devices that come in just very basic colours and designs. Yes black, white and blue are safe and reliable colours that most people are drawn towards, but for those that want something a bit more exciting, we have this remarkable product from Con Air that comes in the colour teal!
Now that is extraordinary indeed but don’t worry, the colour isn’t the only thing that’s cool about this device. What’s the first thing regular hair drying users’ think of when they think of hair dryers? Well the heat damage of course! No matter how many protectant serums and lotions you put in your hair, there is always a real risk of potential hair damage with any sort of heat usage.
Well do not fret because the Con Air 1875 has you covered with its Ceramic Tourmaline grills which use infrared technology to dry out hair even faster than usual but prevent the hair from actually drying out due to heat damage. This is great for users who dry or style their hair daily. The foldable handle and retractable power cord are also such conveniences in an otherwise hard life! While you may be having difficulties adjusting to the different time zones and unfamiliar languages, all your styling needs will be packed up safely in your sock compartment ready for sue when you desire it.
The ionic function in this device is also wonderful as it transfers negative ions onto the positive ion covered surface of your hair and therefore neutralizes out the charge, leading to absolutely beautiful and frizz free hair in no time. Again, we are not very impressed with the only 2 heat and speed settings that this device hosts because we want at least 5 or 6 because some of our other favourite contenders offer that many. However, we’ll let this pass as it offers dual voltage capability as well.
We have here now, another quite unknown brand which is called DAN. This device has all the makings of an excellent hair dryer for travel purposes as it not only is so small and portable but is also in the ultra-lightweight category making it perhaps the smallest device on our list. You can talk about all the other features you like but there is something about size and compact ability that really takes the cake when it comes to storing electric devices for travel.
The D29 of course comes with a universal voltage adaption option which is fantastic because you do not want to travel halfway around the world and then find out you cannot charge or use your device. From 125 volts to 250, the D29 has got your back! You also receive an EU adapter which is a two pin plug system.
Since it is so tiny, it goes without saying that no matter the age, all the family can use and share this device without any danger or worry. Even kids and teens can maneuver this lightweight device around easily. Plus the foldable handle is so handy when you simply do not have the space!
You also get both a concentrator nozzle and a diffuser to further customize the way you will use this device and these come along with the product. No extra charges! Now you can style, shape and dry your hair as you like whether it is for curlier designs or for that sleek and straight look!
How could this list ever be complete if we didn’t include in a Remington product as well? Remington hair dryers are usually known to be pretty large so this product is not only a rare find but also a great addition to our list. Signing off with this one we are excited to discuss the many features it boasts.
Starting off with its impressive 2 speed and 2 heat settings we say finally! This should be the minimum when it comes to hair dryer settings because users want maximum customization options!
You also get the claim of a 40 percent more efficient air flow from this device which is obviously what makes it such a professional product, although we feel that for the inexperienced user, that’s going to be a bit too much to handle. The motor on this thing runs at a standard 1875 watts but since it is for pros, it definitely packs more of a punch than most. The pearl ceramic technology means that your hair will receive the smoothest and most luxurious treatment money can buy but at a very affordable cost.
