The three H's!

Hair Dryer. Harry Potter. Hayley's Birthday.

Okay so my Birthday is exactly two months away today. My 19th! I know it is a while but I am so useless at writing lists and this year, my parents are going to have one very, very early. My birthday has always been something I look forward to and is such a perfect excuse to get my friends home from University and some quality time with my family. Other than hoping for the Complete Harry Potter DVD box-set, I really want a new hair dryer! Not sure if you know this, but air drying just isn't quick enough! Nor is hanging your head out the window. Before you think I am mad and been living in a cave, I used to have one! Basically, the fuse died on my first and I, erm, broke my second one. Apparently they're not waterproof (twice). However, I am strongly considering asking for a more expensive one. Like with my straighteners, I gave up on the cheaper makes and finally succumbed to the wonder that is GHD. Maybe it is worth buying paying more for one that lasts instead of replacing each crappy one with an equally crappy one. This is one of the nicest I have found so far! Such a passive buyer I can be, the product description actually had me in a weird kinda fashion trance:

''She’s got the perfect silhouette; amazing lines and curves in all the right places. She’s the envy of the others – stylish, smart, fresh, cool and commanding. Everybody’s talking about her. The music starts, the lights go down, a hush falls upon the front row. The time has come to make her debut. She strides out, confident and powerful. The flashbulbs are blinding; the applause is deafening. Meet our new supermodel, ghd air.''

GHD AIR. £99 (I do not own this image)

This hair dryer not only looks pretty sleek and beautiful but will hopefully rub some of its perfection off on me. It would save me time and frizz, but I would also have to compromise my DVD box-set and the Illamasqua lip stick I have been dying for! Decisions, decisions.

What do you think? Is it worth buying a quality hair dryer? Do you have one similar to this? Let me know your thoughts!

I think that if you really need the hair dryer then you should get it! I usually don't use hair dryers because I feel sorry for my hair when I do use that "machine", haha :P but I guess it's just me who thinks this way :D
anyway, when you buy something (especially a machine) then it should be a proper thing with nice quality, so good luck! :)

I know some people think its a great investment. Depends on what you have to wake up to, everyday to get ready.

I don't think I would.

I hope you find an affordable one. Mine is cheap, and its lasted for years.

Well, you have a few weeks to get ready for this. Hopefully, you'll find the right one. Its so hard when you can't just play with it in the store. I guess..but you should ask. You know, for a closer look.

But I'd be hyped on getting those DVD-sets, of course.

I think a really good hair dryer is money well spent. Of course I think you can get more inexpensive ones that are good but it is hard to find one and it can be very hit or miss. This on sounds pretty awesome. My hair takes forever to dry so I bought a really powerful one and it was a bit on the pricey side but totally worth it. Probably saves me a good hour each time I wash & dry my hair!

I have rubbish hairdryers! Always have - and it's so silly because I have mega thick hair that takes ages to dry. Ridiculous!

I never use a hairdryer, they make my hair too fluffy - not a good look ;-). But I definitely agree with the idea of spending more money to get a better quality product! Even thought I have all of the Harry Potter DVDs, I still really want the box set hehe ;-) xx

Thanks for all your comments! Nice to know I am not the only girl in the world with crappy hair dryers! Also great to hear a variety of different opinions. I will let you know what I decide, I am sure :)
