Harry Josh Hair Dryer

Harry Josh Pro Dryer 2000, $300, hairenvy.com.

Some people can venture off to the beach, sans hair dryer, sans worry, and go straight to dinner with perfect beach waves. I am not one of those people. I rely on a strong blow dryer to maintain my frizz—and dignity—at home and on the go. This one by Harry Josh is not only small and lightweight enough to pack for a quick weekend trip, it’s powerful enough to use every day.
