Babyliss Hair Dryer Reviews
Babyliss is the name one of the most popular brands that manufactures hair dryers. Although the brand is now being owned by another hair dryer producer known as “Conair”, BaByliss is still much an independent product brand. Official site here.
Why are they so popular?
BaByliss are popular because they make it easy for everyone to have a product perfect for their hair requirements and suitable for their budget. These are made possible because they have been in existence for many years and have an extensive range and variety of products.
What different models do they offer for different budgets?
BaByliss currently offers some of the best hair dryer in the market. Here are two of the budget models that have got great reviews from owners, critics and independent consumer reports. We also have a mid range dryer and a video review of the high end Pro Bolare V1 Ferrari model.
Babyliss 5560 Range
- 3 Temperature settings plus cool shot.
- Ionic Function
- Comes with a concentrator nozzle
After using this blow dryer a few times, we were really impressed with how fast it dried hair on each setting. The only downside of this is that if you like to style your hair slowly and carefully then it is harder to do with this blow dryer. Overall though, people who own this model say that it leaves their hair shiny and feeling smooth and it is easy to achieve decent styling effects with particular dryer. The three temperature settings are operated using a sliding switch located on the side of the handle.
The cool shot button is on the front. The cool shot needed to be continuously pressed to maintain cooler air and it isn’t as cool as other models. The air speed switch is on either side of the off switch. This means that the blow dryer switches off if you flick between the two which can be slightly annoying.
Weighing just 488g the lightweight hair dryer feels well balanced in your hands and the handle is comfortable to hold. This is great if you have long hair because you can hold it in the air for a long time until your arm aches. The cord is only 1.9 metres long so you need to be near a mirror. The 5560 comes in a variety of colours with a 2 letter sequence at the end of the 5560 model number.
Comfortable and lightweight. Dries quickly and great styling results.
Short cable, could do with a slower drying time for complicated styling.
The Conclusion: A great little budget hair dryer that even competes with more expensive models!
Babyliss Turbo Power
There is a perfect contrast between the highest and lowest air speeds. So if you want to take your time creating a gently coiffed style or a windswept rough and ready look then this is perfect. The drying rate on the highest setting is good but more disappointing on lower settings.
Professional testers who tried this product said it didn’t leave hair as smooth as other products available and some said it left a small amount of frizz. Sadly the cool shot on this model is next to useless. It takes 33 seconds to cool and its only 2 degrees cooler than the lowest heat setting so you won’t notice a lot of difference. This is really light so it’s really comfortable to hold up for long periods of time.
Light weight hair dryer that is easy to hold and great for styles that require slow drying.
The cool shot is hopeless and the cord length is only 1.9 metres.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a budget hair dryer that is lightweight and dries slowly then this is a good option.

This is a review by an American as is the offer but you can get this from Amazon UK.
Babyliss PRO TT Tourmaline Titanium Hair Dryer
This product is very quiet and light. With 1900 watts blowing power, it dries hair faster. It also features tourmaline and titanium technology which generates negative ions in higher quantities for incredible shine, and far-infrared heat for fast drying and easy styling. The combination of tourmaline and titanium makes this BaByliss hair dryer very effective. Its lightness also makes sure it is convenient to use. This product can be bought online for a under £50.
