Shopping for Hair Dryers by Wattage
The wattage of a hair dryer is a measure of its overall power and an indicator of how quickly models can take hair from completely wet to perfectly dry. Many people prefer to start their search for a hair dryer by focusing on those with the wattage ratings that will give them the best results. You can use the menu on the left to narrow down the options and shop by wattage.
Models with wattage ratings of 1875 will be ideal for the majority of people. If you have very fine or thin hair or your hair is damaged due to thermal styling, a model with a lower wattage rating may be better suited to your needs. For drying very thick, coarse or long hair quickly, confine your search to hair dryers with higher wattage ratings.
