Raise your hand if you’ve ever watched a hair tutorial featuring a thick-haired goddess like Kim Kardashian or Negin Mirsalehi. OK, now raise your hand if you copied that tutorial step by step, yet ended up looking...well, nothing like either one of them. We see you, fine-haired ladies. While it's a sad reality that you can’t magically make your fine hair thicker, there are products out there that can help to make it work more in your favor—starting with the best hair dryers for fine hair.
Stylist and colorist Prisilla Rodriguez of Levato Salon in Hinsdale, Illinois, explains, “People with fine hair should invest in good tools to preserve what [they] have. That ten-year-old Conair dryer might still be getting the job done, but you have to work harder at getting your hair to look good with it because it’s not as strong as a newer or stronger dryer.”
We’ve broken down everything you need to know about the best hair dryers for fine hair below, from the salon-favorite Dyson Supersonic ($429) to the budget-friendly Hot Tools Turbo ($60) and the smoothing Morrocanoil Smart Styling dryer ($190).
