To make sure you get the perfect results you are looking for, there are buttons for changing the speed and temperature.

If you are looking for a powerful, fast-drying and easy to use hair dryer, the ghd Air is one of the best.


Key features of ghd Air Hairdryer

1. Salon-quality performance

Many home hair styling tools tend to have reduced power and hence less performance compared to the ones used in salons. Not the ghd Air.

It comes with a 2,100W motor that drives a high pressure flow of air through your hair. This means your hair dries more quickly and experiences less heat exposure.

Every time you use it, you’ll look as if you just stepped out of the salon. If you have thick and long hair that takes forever to dry, this hairdryer is what you need.

2. Variable controls plus cool shot button

The effectiveness of a hairdryer is not just in its power. The ability to control the speed and temperature also matters a great deal in styling your hair to perfection.

The ghd Air allows you to change both the speed and heat settings. You can increase the speed for a quick dry or if you have thick hair. You can reduce the heat for fine hair or crank it up if you have thicker or curlier hair.

There is also a cool shot button. Press it and the hairdryer produces a flow of cool air. This helps your hair set in place faster. It’s great for ensuring your hair looks good all day long.

3. Ionic conditioning

As you dry and style your hair, the ghd Air does not just produce hot air; it also produces negative ions. These counter the static in your hair hence reducing frizz.

With the ionic conditioning, your hair will look smooth and soft. It also dries your hair faster.

How easy is it to use?

A few customers have noted that the ghd Air is slightly heavier than most hairdryers. But it hasn’t been an issue for most users. You quickly get used to the extra weight thanks to the super comfortable design of the hair dryer.

For one, the ergonomic handle can be used with either the left or right hand. It’s textured so it feels stable in your hand’s grip. The control buttons are located behind the handle where you can easily reach them even when drying your hair.

The extra-long 3m cable also proves handy when you need to twist and turn the hair dryer to reach every part of your hair.

The hairdryer has a UK 3-pin plug so you should have no trouble connecting it to an outlet.

What accessories are included?

The ghd Air hairdryer comes with 1 wide nozzle for focused air flow. It’s helpful when you want to focus on a specific part of your hair.

No other accessories including a diffuser are included. If you want a diffuser, the ghd Air is compatible with the ghd Air Diffuser.


  • Powerful but easy to use. You get professional results without much hassle.
  • Very comfortable in your hand. The handle’s ergonomic design makes the hairdryer easy to hold even during longer hair drying sessions.
  • Ionic conditioning to eliminate frizz.
  • Variable speed and heat settings.


  • Doesn’t come with a diffuser. If you want it, you have to buy it separately.
  • Feels a bit heavy at first.

Anything else you should know?

When you use the hairdryer for the first time, it’s a good idea to use it at the lowest heat and speed settings. The heat one is especially important to avoid damaging your hair.

You can then increase the speed and heat levels as you see fit. If you have delicate, fine or damaged hair, the medium or low heat settings are best. If you have thick or extra-curly hair, try the medium or high heat settings.

Final verdict

The ghd Air is one of the best hairdryers you can buy. It packs plenty of power and comes with a homely easy to use design. As with all ghd products, you can expect it to remain reliable for years.
