BaByliss has done it again—they’ve created yet another blow dryer that is a favorite among customers. True to its name, the “Portofino” is actually made in Italy and is equipped with a 2000-watt Italian motor, powerful enough to get even the thickest hair dry in less time than usual.
And if the Italian flair isn’t cool enough, there are several other features that make the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino blow dryer one to check out if you’re in the market for a new blow dryer.
Features and Pros of the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino
The first cool thing we noticed about the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium dryer is that it comes in two color options: luminescent blue and sleek black. It’s not really often you get to choose the color of your blow dryer, so even though it’s only two color choices, hey—we’ll take it. Both colors look pretty awesome.
- Made in Italy
- Nano Titanium technology
- 2000-watt Italian AC motor
- 6 heat/speed settings
The next sweet feature is BaByliss’s Nano Titanium technology. The trademarked component is what dries hair faster by distributing negative ion-enhanced heat evenly to the hair, reducing static and closing down the outer cuticle layer, adding shine and reducing frizz. In fact, several reviewers online mentioned just how little frizz they experienced after blow drying with this BaByliss dryer!
6 Heat / Speed Settings
This combo is more than most dryers have, so that allows you to customize your blow-drying experience for your hair texture, type, length, thickness…all that good stuff. Or maybe the setting you use depends on the weather. (Love that cool shot button in the summer!)
Regardless, this BaByliss dryer will give you several options to control your air flow, temperature, and smoothness factor. Many say it dries their hair so straight, it looks like they used a flat iron—or even styled their hair almost as well as their stylist!
Quick Drying Time
Yes, we mentioned this already, but it’s worth mentioning again. Several BaByliss customers have mentioned being thrilled with their drying time being “cut in half.” Anything that saves time is a bonus in today’s overbooked world, right? That could give you up to 15 or even 20 minutes of free time in the mornings (or whenever you dry your hair)—extra time to enjoy your coffee or take deep breaths to get ready for the day! Who would think a blow dryer could be a stress reducer as well!?
Fairly lightweight, has an ergonomic handle, comes with two concentrator nozzles, and the rear filter is stainless steel! Okay, so those are a few little things rolled into one, but great bonuses nonetheless. The stainless steel filter means that it will be easy to clean and will last longer than any crummy plastic ones.
BaByliss doesn’t skimp on quality, and you’ll surely be able to see the difference in many ways.
Cons of the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino
So, are there any cons? Well, nothing is perfect. While the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium dryer is proclaimed to be awesome by many fans, there are still those who mention them breaking, the heating element going out, or not being an authentic product on Amazon. Of course, that’s one thing to always watch out for.
Some may say the price is a bit of a downside, because there are definitely cheaper hair dryers to be found. Overall, the consensus seems to be that it’s worth the price from any website or seller—as long as it’s the authentic product.
Of course, it’s not going to work the same for everyone’s hair—hence the 6 settings—but there will still be those for whom it doesn’t work and that’s okay. But the ratings online don’t lie…the majority are happy with their BaBylissPRO Nano Portofino.
So there you have it…cool features aside, the BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Portofino is a good-quality dryer, made in Italy by a good-quality company that knows its stuff. So pick your color, blue or black, and give it a try!
