As long as we've been washing our hair, we've been drying it—and it's rare, in a sea of pastel, plastic, black, chrome, and high-tech-looking hair tools, to come across something that really stands out, not only performance-wise, but visually.
Say hello to Paul Mitchell's new limited-edition Express Ion Dry Turbolight Dryer ($190), an 1875 Watt professional-motored, three-temp, two-speed, cool-shot, lightweight hair dryer that harnesses the power of ions to enhance shine and condition your locks. Paul Mitchell's also packed the dryer with its Express Ion Complex—which means that using this hairdryer will cut down your drying time by 60%. More than half!
Oh, and did we mention it looks really cool?
There's also this cool-wood-looking flatiron for $160.
