I've got a Babyliss salon style/class don't know what they call it but I've had a good five years or more and it's been great.

My hairdresser has been recommending the Tigi one that they use in the salon (very good for people with loads of hair) but I think it's a small fortune.

Is it still available?

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 18:03:41

The babyliss one

Don't get a Revlon one, teh blue one. Too heavy and too long - always bang my head with it.

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 18:11:02

Any more recommendations???

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 19:26:54

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 19:39:37

by revlon

Tinker Wed 02-Mar-05 19:40:23

more like this but blue and black

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 19:41:47

does anyone have any of these


Tinker Wed 02-Mar-05 19:46:26

Aren't they all much of a muchness? Once you knwo it is 1800 or whatever, just need to see how heavy and whetehr they look nice. I need to have one that gets very hot and dries hair very quickly so needs to be powerful

might be too late for you but I have Toni & Guy one I bought in the salon - about £25 I think - it is fab - had it about 3 years now and still going strong

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 20:25:34

can u see one like it on argos page?

toddlermum Wed 02-Mar-05 20:31:08

not really - and it is 2500 watts - more than the ones on the argos page.

Demented Wed 02-Mar-05 20:51:33

They don't make the same model as mine anymore but would imagine this is similar.

RTKangaMummy Wed 02-Mar-05 20:55:19

mirror and plug not near each other
