Top 10 Best Hair Dryers in Australia 2022 - Buyers Guide (2022)

Hair dryers have come a very long way in the last decade or so, and something that was originally just for drying your wet hair fresh from the shower is now an indispensable beauty tool that can drastically change your appearance.

They can be used to curl, straighten, or wave your hair, softening your features and subtly changing the shape of your face as it appears to others. Often, people don’t realise they’ve been putting up with fluffy, frizzy hair until they finally invest in a quality hair dryer and see what they’ve been missing.

A good quality hair dryer can dry your hair in a quarter of the time that a poor quality one can, and will leave your hair softer and glossier, with less heat damage over time.

Newer models often have ceramic heating that disperses heat more evenly without scorching, and ionic technology that releases negative ions to attach to positively charged electrons in the air to keep your hair frizz and static free.

We’ve rounded up the best hair dryers available and reviewed them from highest quality professional salon dryers to more affordable picks that can provide years of damage-free service.

Top 10 Best Hair Dryers in Australia 2022 - Buyers Guide (1)

Best For Frizzy Hair

1. Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer

The best hair dryer of 2021 without competition, for the highest cost

What we like
  • Sleek and compact design
  • Easy to use and useful attachments
  • Relatively quiet
  • Efficient and quick dry without heat damage

What could be better
  • Price tag
  • The cool setting needs improvement

The Dyson Supersonic is the fastest, most effective and best hair dryer that money can buy. A Dyson airblade, but for your hair - would that work? The answer has surprisingly been a resounding “yes!”. Dyson made quite a bold move dropping a cool $71 million on completely reinventing the hair dryer, but quickly reviewers flocked to rave for this revolution to hair drying.

Using their cyclonic air multiplier technology borrowed from their other popular tower fans and pedestal fans, Dyson was able to put a motor into the handle that is actually smaller and lighter, for an energy efficient and quieter function without sacrificing any air flow. This means even tight frizz dries without coiling, and smooths without burning. In fact, this hair dryer has the highest air flow and fastest drying time on this list.

The other amazing feature of the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is the unique design, it is so light and balanced to hold. While other hair dryers are more top heavy, this machine is essentially all handle, so it is marvellously easy to manipulate into any angle you could wish, and the brushless bladeless technology means you will never accidentally snag your hair in the motor.

The air flow and heat can get overwhelmingly high, so we recommend starting on the lower settings and slowly creeping up. The air flow can be quite blowy even on the lowest setting, so use attachments for better control.

Attachments include a smoothing nozzle for smoothest air flow, a precision styling concentrator, a diffuser attachment to provide evenly heated narrow jets deep into voluminous curls, and a wide tooth comb. The attachments magnetically click securely into place and stay put while you dry.

The only drawback to this modern marvel is the hefty price tag, but if the cost does not bother you, this will be worth the investment. For people who know the perpetual struggle of having extremely uncooperative locks that never seem to dry properly and settle well, the ultimate saviour of shiny dry hair within minutes is going to pay for itself with time saved in the mornings.

If you’ve been a long time fan of Good Hair Day, you may already be aware of their beautiful hair dryers, but the Helios Professional is easily their best to date. For true pampering, this is a luxury hair dryer for all hair types, but particularly for people who see a lot of flyaways.

The Helios model features Aeroprecis technology that utilises internal aerodynamic physics in combination with acoustic technology to shape the contoured nozzle, for concentrated powerful air flow whilst dampening the noise.

For those with ultra fine hair, super frizzy hair, or thick bushy curls, this is the ultimate time saving hair dryer that will keep your hair smooth and collected all day. The satisfying twin buttons click back and forth to control 3 heat settings and 3 speeds with a cool shot function.

The weight and ergonomic design of the Helios feels lovely and luxurious to hold, with quality materials used for the shell. At 780 grams this is not the lightest hair dryer around, but the thoughtfully placed weight balance makes the dryer easy to maneuver at any angle.

A powerful brushless motor guarantees long life of the dryer and air flow of 120 kilometres per hour. The internal ionising system removes air static before it reaches your hair, resulting in better alignment for smoother and shinier hair with zero flyaways or frizz.

Best For Curly Hair

3. Parlux Alyon Air Ionizer Tech

A powerful hair dryer designed for salon use

What we like
  • Powerful motor, quick drying without damaging hair
  • Lightweight and quiet
  • Long cord
  • Sturdy, built to last
Price AUD:

Loading ...

If you want to use what the hairdressers use, the Parlux Alyon is a professional hair dryer that will last you for years. The Alyon Air comes with an excellent cool shot, together with a signature and professional diffuser (does not include in the package) making it the best hair dryer for curly hair.

The 2250 watt motor provides an amazing 84 m³ per hour air flow on the highest setting, without the noise and overheating that would usually imply. The front body doesn’t conduct heat so you can sandwich hair between the dryer and hair brush without worrying, and the motor has an incorporated silencer, as well as a silencer that attaches to the back to muffle fan noise.

Longevity of salon products is always a priority, and the newer tech in this motor will ensure exactly that, up to 3000 hours of continued use guaranteed. The removable filter in the back catches not only dust but is designed to catch flyaway hair without snagging in the machine, reducing danger of pulls and of damaging the fans inside.

Ionic technology removes static as you dry, meaning this is also a suitable and lightweight option for curly hair. The diffuser designed especially for this model is a professional quality godsend for curly hair that needs to be scrunched and kept still when hair drying. For seriously curly hair, the cold shot function on this dryer is actually properly cool, to keep heat far away from those crazy curls.

It comes in your choice of about a dozen colours too, all of them equally glossy and luxurious to touch.

The Parlux Advance Light is a professional hair dryer that is light, powerful and a pleasure to hold. It’s clear that this is a hair dryer made with professionals in mind.

When you use tools like this for twenty minutes at a time multiple times a day, you want something that will be gentle on your wrists and still give you that professional salon quality controlled heat.

The ceramic body allows the dryer to heat evenly without directing all heat straight into the centre. Despite the material, the unbelievable lightness and balanced weight of the machine gives superior control over your technique. Air ionising technology reduces drying time while preserving the integrity of the hair, removing static electricity to keep hair soft and shiny.

The 2200 watt motor is a newer technology that offers up to 2500 hours of guaranteed function, at an air flow output of 83m³ per hour. This awesome air flow combined with even heating reduces drying time and preserves the condition of your hair.

This dryer is also surprisingly quiet for such a high output, thanks to an incorporated silencer and additional melody silencer attachment that clips to the back to further muffle the noise.

5. Remington Air 3D Plus

A futuristic hair dryer that is super easy to use for some slick styles

What we like
  • Versatile with a good range of nozzles
  • Fast hair drying with stable heat
  • Compact design, easy to store and maneuver
  • User friendly

What could be better
  • Slightly heavy but manageable
  • Not the quietest machine
  • Hair gets caught in the back vent if not careful
Price AUD:

Loading ...

Under $200, the best hair dryer on our list is the Remington Air 3D Plus. This unique hair dryer may look very space age, but is sure to upgrade your styling game with several nozzles for shaping and correcting longer lasting styles with optimised temperature control.

The Air 3D gets its name from its innovative “3D air flow”, which uses air flow from the handle through directed amplification to multiply the speed of air reaching your hair. This also means the motor is more energy efficient and is located in the handle, making the hair dryer feel way lighter, easier to hold and manipulate without tiring your wrist.

The attachments included are really cleverly designed to fit your styling needs, and push and turn satisfyingly around the front, so you can have them at any angle you like. There's a diffuser, an extra wide concentrator for stronger air and heat distribution across a styling brush, and a super slim concentrator for detailing.

But the wide tooth comb concentrator and the curling concentrator will quickly become your favourite attachments, saving you the effort of heating up your straightener without the tense look of crisply ironed hair. The wide tooth comb directs air through your hair as you comb it, which means your hair has nowhere to go but sit flat under heat, for effortless straighter longer hair. The curling concentrator is shaped to fit neatly with a medium barreled styling brush, bringing natural curls to your hair as you dry it in a quarter of the time.

Also, this thing just looks and feels super cool! It’s light, chic, futuristic, and the back grille lights up in cool shot mode. We’re living for this design to be the future of hair dryers.

Best For Damaged Hair

6. Philips Prestige Pro

An awesome new motor tech and premium salon styling capacity for a mid tier price

What we like
  • Thermal protection that doesn’t harm hair
  • Dries hair fast to minimise dryness and damage
  • Solid and sturdy design
  • Great speed and heat settings

What could be better
  • It gets loud from 2nd speed mode
  • Heavy
Price AUD:

Loading ...

The Prestige Pro ceramic ionic dryer features some of the newest tech around, in a reliable machine that can get the job done faster protecting hair from heat damage.

The professional AC motor is a powerful beast running at 2300 watts. This motor is newer technology that will last 50% longer than standard hair dryers, and creates one powerful air flow of 120km per hour.

One feature we love is the innovative 6mm concentrator that flattens that super high air flow into a styling blade of air that reduces heat exposure. Because the concentrator often makes contact with the hair or comes very close, if heat builds up in the concentrator a flap inside flexes and is forced open, to let out heat early before it touches your hair. This innovation makes this hair dryer the best for pro daily styling without damaging your hair.

Ceramic element technology produces infrared heat to dry your hair less aggressively, although it may take an extra 10 seconds to warm up. Ionic conditioning is also included to remove air static, leaving your hair glossy and smooth.

The controls are really nice, clicking satisfyingly between 3 different speeds of 3 different heats, with an extra button for cool shot mode. The design of these switches is really pretty with a golden trim outline, adding flair to the overall chic look of a very pretty hair dryer.

This is great power and excellent drying speed at a more affordable price than those top professional salon dryers.

With ceramic and tourmaline, optimised heating, and a high performance motor in one beautiful package, the Remington Proluxe Salon intelligent hair dryer is an absolute steal for well under $100.

The Remington Proluxe has a long lasting 2400 watt motor that provides controllable power and intelligent heat optimising technology for even heat application.

The ceramic and tourmaline materials provide even heat distribution that won’t result in breakage or damage, and the internal ionic conditioning pumps out negative ions to absorb static and keep your locks frizz free.

The diffuser and concentrator attachments easily snap on and are easy to use for most hair styles. The controls are easy to manipulate blind, for adjustment of 3 speeds and 3 temperature settings, including a good cool shot mode for cool drying.

The Proluxe is also gorgeous to touch and look at, with beautiful black matte coating and pale gold detailing from case join to heating grille to the removable filter at the back.

All over, this is a robust and reliable hair dryer, with optimised heat control to keep your hairstyle intact from morning until bedtime. Considering the affordable price, the heating and air flow of this hair dryer are excellent, making the Proluxe Salon the best value buy.

8. Silver Bullet Velvet

A high heat black matte beauty from a local company

What we like
  • Good grip and tactile buttons
  • Robust power without overheating
  • Fairly quiet, lightweight
  • Stylish and matte finish

What could be better
  • The nozzles can come off during use
  • No cold blast button

There’s no denying the Silver Bullet Velvet is an attractive machine. The exterior is black matte and lovely to touch. The minimalist design is certainly chic and is an aesthetic luxury for those who want to lean into feeling pampered during their morning rituals.

This hair dryer comes with 2000 watts for super hot air, a newer technology of AC motor that will give you better longevity from your purchase.

3 heat and 3 air flow settings give plenty of control over output to suit any hair type. 570 grams will be nice and light in your hand to give you that better maneuverability and control over your technique.

The concentrator is extremely slim, because the base unit is already quite concentrated. This concentrator will give you a razor blade of heat to work with, great for experienced stylists.

Best For Thick Hair

(Video) The Best Hair Dryers in 2022 | Top 3 Picks

9. VS Sassoon VSD769A

A great affordable all rounder, best for thicker hair

What we like
  • Great value for money
  • Comes with a good quality diffuser and styling brush
  • Light and compact size
  • Easy to hold and use

What could be better
  • The lowest air output is still too strong

One of the best affordable hair dryer in the market is the VS Sassoon VSD769A. 2400 watts of drying power blows a powerful high velocity air flow through your hair that will be great for thicker hair that’s hard to dry and style. 3 heat settings and 2 speed settings give you some control over the output, but expect big heat and big blow on the highest setting.

The hair dryer has an internal ionic generator to reduce static, which will help curly girls from frizzing out. The hair dryer also comes with a diffuser that can help spread the cooler air over curls, lightly drying your mane without aggressively heating it into a frizzy mess.

The diameter of the base unit funnel is on the narrow side, but the condenser is nice and slim, for that extra stylised look. This is a great entry point for budding stylists looking to work with a serious concentrator, but for casual use you may want to leave it off, as the base unit is already decently narrow.

Included in this bundle package is a VS Sassoon thermal styling brush, which makes this affordable option even more of a bargain. The brush is good quality, with moderately short bristles that never warp in the heat, and a medium sized barrel.

The ceramic surface maintains heat evenly, which can help support styling by giving consistent heat to the brush without directing too much heat to the centre.

10. Remington Aero 2000

Fast drying for this budget hair dryer that you can trust daily

What we like
  • Durable and reliable hair dryer
  • Super competitive price for the quality
  • Lightweight
  • Not too loud nor cumbersome

What could be better
  • Cool shot’s temperature is not quite cool
  • No cord winding system
  • Buttons can be finicky to operate
Price AUD:

Loading ...

If you just need a reliable hair dryer and aren’t fussed about extras, or if you’re looking for travel hair dryers to keep the budget in check, the Aero 2000 is a great affordable pick that will dry your hair fast and safely every day without fail.

Three heat levels and two speed levels mean you still have that control over the hair dryer, so you can adapt it to your styling technique without risking your hair. There is also a “cool shot” setting that minimises heat to the warmth of a baby, but is not actually cool or unheated like you might expect. That will be an attractive mode for people with fragile hair that has had multiple bleachings.

Concentrator nozzle is on the slim side, a good mid ground between detail and wider dispersion. The nozzle unclips for a wider blast from the 2000 watts of heating, and the filter from the back unclips for easy maintenance.

The controls are easy to use without even looking. One switch for high or medium heat, the other for three fan speeds, and a big blue button for cool shot mode.

The main drawbacks are the large size and less than impressive blow dryer speed, but this is a great option for kids and older people that need a safer product that’s sturdy and easy to use.

How to choose a hair dryer

When picking a hair dryer the first thing to consider is your hair type. Thick, curly, frizzy or flat, different hair types require different strategies to keep your locks luscious. After that, you’ll want to think about the size and weight that will impact how your styling technique, and what other attachments and features would be best tailored to match your own hair care needs.

What’s your hair like?

Thicker hair needs tougher air flow to get underneath all those folds, so prioritise high wattage motors up to 2000 watts that offer greater heat and air flow to tame your mane. If you have seriously curly hair, you want to look at hair dryers that include a diffuser, so you can keep your wet hair neatly scrunched while the hair dryer injects the dry air into your curls.

Normal and fine hair are usually the easiest to manipulate, and most hair dryers will be appropriate. But if you’re a woman, expect hormonal changes during heavier periods, pregnancy, and high stress times to drastically change your hair, causing it to fall and grow back, leading to flyaways and hair that changes textures in patches. Self-ionising hair dryers will really take the static out of the electrified air and reduce those flyaway “baby hairs”.

Size, weight and shape

Weight is probably not the first priority on your mind, but if it takes you a while to dry your hair or you’re into your styling game, a heavy hair dryer is going to tire you faster and damage your wrists over time. The smallest size you can get away with usually is best for both daily use and travel, but this may lose some quality of the motor.

The heaviest thing in a hair dryer is the motor, so look for the lightest one that will still give you the power you need, and remember that newer motor technology is usually more costly, but smaller. High quality materials like ceramic and tourmaline will also be slightly heavier, but provide superior even heating.

Features to look out for

Ceramic and ionic technology are both helpful to support the heating element drying your hair faster with less abrasive heat to the outer layer of your hair. Thicker hair will find this means less frizz and static, but for fine hair this is the difference between glossy and neat versus fried and damaged.

Attachments often include a concentrator to push air through a smaller space, reducing heat and increasing air flow. Go large for a lesser effect, or super slim for detail styling. The other increasingly common attachment is a diffuser for an even spread of hotter air at a lower speed, great for avoiding giving too much volume to thick or curly hair.

Other quality of life features are intuitive controls and a hook to hang up your hair dryer away from children and wet areas of your bathroom. A feature to consider is the length of cord you need too, there’s nothing worse than realising your power cord isn’t long enough to comfortably reach your mirror!
