At Jon Charles Salon, I took notice to one thing – women were wishing they could get the same blow dry results at home. Well, I heard my ladies, and started the Jon Charles Blow Dry Bootcamp class at my salon.

In the bootcamp, I educated them on the best blow dryers to buy, the best brushes to get for the right effect, and then I trained them on technique. It’s near impossible to get the same results as a professional doing it for you – just the extra set of hands in the back of you is a huge advantage – but with improved technique training yielded such amazing results from all the ladies!

For the ultimate blow dry experience, the Elchim 2001 professional blow dryer with the Free Style blow dryer support system (freestylist.com) is my favorite. This system suspends the blow dryer from a retractable cord in the ceiling. Pull the blow dryer down and it turns on, let it go and it turns off! It will really help you get back that counter space you need.

For most women, a good blow dryer is no less important than good mascara and eyeliner. I consider it a beauty essential. The measure of a great blow dryer consists of its speed, heat, weight, and durability. These are a few of the factors I used to pick the best of the best.
