7 Travel Hairdryers To Save Space In Your Suitcase & Perfectly Style Your Strands

Mini sizing, maximum styling.

Anyone who has navigated the tricky game that is packing Tetris will know that travel-size products are essential space-savers, none more so than the travel hairdryer.

If like us, you rely on your hairdryer for that perfect ‘90s blow-out or tactfully taming your locks, the idea of leaving for a trip without it (namely, not being able to style your strands for great holiday snaps) can feel impossible.

Not to mention, there’s nothing worse than relying on a hotel dryer that lacks the volatge to give you that va-va-voom volume you desire. 

A full-size hairdryer can take up some seriously prime real estate in your luggage, so we highly recommend investing in a great travel-size tool with enough power to cater to your styling needs while taking up minimal space. 

Below, we round up some of the best travel hair dryers to shop in Australia.

Are Travel Hairdryers Worth It?

The decision to take a travel hairdryer is really up to you. While some people may have enough space in their suitcase for their usual hairdryer, a lot of us may struggle to squeeze it in.

If you’re wanting to travel with a lighter bag, are taking carry-on or simply don’t want the hassle of a big hairdryer, then a travel hairdryer is well worth the purchase.

Can You Take A Hairdryer On The Plane?

Yes, most airlines will allow you to pack a hairdryer, hair straightener or curler in your carry on bag.

However, to be safe, its best to check your specific airline’s guidelines.
