I have this one, it was brought as a gift for me at christmas, and whilst the design isnt to my tatse perhaps, the hairdryer itself is really good, three heat settings, 3 power settings, attachments for sleek/curly etc and a cool shot button.
I was just going to say, get one with Ions, (frizz control/shine), a long cable, and with a cool shot or decent temp control. That's all you really need in a hairdryer, though the bigger the wattage the faster it should dry.
Good old Amazon or Parlux itself : www.parlux.co.uk/ Expect to pay at least £70 but they're really worth every penny (don't bother with the compacts though). They dry your hair so quickly it doesn't get damaged as much, plus they'll last you years and years. In fact, I wish mine packed in already so I can ge the Ionic one. I feel mine's relic now!
I'd go to a beauty supplies store like salon services , I too have quite fine but lots of hair, go for one thats super fast, I got mine for £35 including VAT. These are ones that are used in salons so they have more power. Dont buy a commercial brand one as these are normally too hot with not enough blow power iykwim... HTH
I said that just because they're not actually much lighter than the standard ones, just maybe 50 grams which is nothing, and I always feel that all that heat going through a shorter body could mean a compromised lifespan. But honestly, I have no idea really...
