10sep-hairdryers-hero

We trialled 6 hairdryers … and found a clear favourite.

Any hairdryer will dry your hair – but how comfortable is it to use? Does your arm ache after a couple of moments or does the noise make your ears ring?

We asked a panel of 5 to put our hairdryers through their paces, and we also measured each dryer's noise and temperatures.
