Do you ever have one of those moments when you’re blow drying your hair and you take a step to one side—only to yank on the cord, get it caught, or rip it out of the wall?
Most of us have experienced short cord frustration—if not with a blow dryer specifically, at least with some type of appliance. There’s nothing more annoying, especially if you are using the blow dryer in a salon, where a long cord is almost a necessity.
So can we go about finding a hair dryer with an extra long cord—if such a mythical thing even exists? Let’s take a look.
#1 – Rusk Super Freak
The Rusk Super Freak is one blow dryer that boasts an extra long cord—nine feet, as a matter of fact! Its 2000 watts, ceramic and tourmaline, lightweight design, and six heat/speed settings make it easy to use, smoothing frizz and adding shine. It also comes with a handy cool-shot button,
Besides its long cord, the dryer features a rubberized surface, making it a lot simpler for you to multitask in your daily routine. You can read a full review of the Super Freak here.
#2 – Solano Vero 1600W Lightweight Ceramic Hair Dryer
While the cost is a bit higher, the Solano Vero also features a nine-foot cord. The dryer’s tech includes ceramic benefits for the gentlest heat with high shine.
Its light weight reduces arm strain, so this dryer is perfect for those who have neck or shoulder problems and can’t lift their arms for an extended time. On the downside, though, the gentle nature of this dryer’s air flow may not be ideal for thick or wavy hair that takes a long time to dry; however, it’s likely ideal for most medium textures.
#3 – BaBylissPRO Tourmaline Titanium 3000
Another option for a hair dryer with extra long cord is the BaBylissPRO Tourmaline Titanium 3000 (so far BaByliss is killing it in the long cord department!).
Featuring the signature rubberized finish and 1900-watt motor, this red dryer is Besides its color and price, there aren’t too many differences between the 3000 and the Carrera2—except that this one has a nine-foot cord. Regardless of that missing foot, the 3000’s cord is still longer than most!
#4 – Opulent Care Ionic Ceramic
A highly affordable option with a nine-foot cord is the Opulent Care Ionic Ceramic blow dryer, just under $30 on Amazon. While it’s not a professional dryer, it still features ionic technology that reduces frizz and adds shine, cutting down on drying time and leaving your hair soft, healthy, and without static. In fact, Amazon customers largely love the dryer, saying its gentle heat and strong air flow dry hair quickly (and they love its long cord!).
A downside to this dryer would be the buttons, which are easily switched off during drying and get in the way of the grip. But overall, this Opulent Care dryer seems like a winner for the price!
#5 – Harry Josh Ultra Light Pro Dryer
Cord Length: 11 Feet
At the splurge end of the spectrum, the Harry Josh Ultra Light Pro Dryer takes the cake with an eleven-foot cord! This may be the longest cord available on any blow dryer. The Ultra Light also has an air flow speed up to 94 miles per hour, weighs less than a pound, boasts 12 heat/speed settings, and is super quiet.
Sounds incredible, right? The downside? It is the most expensive hair dryer on this list. So if you’re willing to splurge, you pretty much get a boatload of awesome features in a little green pro dryer with a punch.
Are there any downsides to having a long cord? Well, sure. It takes up more space, can get in the way, and can be tripped over. It’s a bit harder to store and wrap up.
However, for most people, the benefits outweigh the negatives. A hair dryer with an extra long cord allows you more flexibility to flip your head over while drying or to grab your toddler before he/she gets away from you—all while still blow drying your hair!
Better yet, you can kill two birds with one stone—get your jump rope workout in during drying time. Why not?
