Sooo, when I was 17 I just had to have THIS hairdryer!! It was more expensive back then ($100, I believe) so anywho, my grandmother got it for me for Christmas. While very beautiful, it just did not do it for me. Not much power and died after a short year. Granted I am an avid blow dryer and used everyday on my super long, super thick hair. I am now using the babyliss pro hair dryer and it is exceptional!!!!
