The Hair Dryer With the Ferrari Engine

The Need For Speed: The Hair Dryer With a Ferrari Engine

Conair's BaByliss Pro has totally pimped its ride — so much so that the engines in the brand's new Volare model (from $199.95) are made with real Ferrari parts. "The industry has been dominated by advancements in the straightening iron category, and nothing has really been done with blow dryers," BaByliss's David Gardiner told WWD.

Volare is the first dryer to use a ball bearing design, which is especially useful to keep it running nice and smooth. It also has precision insert-molded construction for a lightweight feel and a turbo boost button to make airflow rev up, of course. While most dryers' lives last 500-700 hours, the Volare runs 2,000 hours. It also packs an impressive 2,200 watts of power. And good news for us is that the dryer will be available in Australia from October. Woot woot! Are you interested in taking it for a test drive?
