I got my Parlux Light last year after my old one burnt out.
So far it’s been the best hair dryer I’ve owned.
It’s light and works like a gem.
I use it sometimes to dry my fake tan once I’ve applied it, without any front piece attached.
It has a longer extension cord also which is a bonus.
The filter at the back is also easy to clean.
I’m happy with my purchase.

Always perfect with a Parlux
Cannot fault this hairdryer!
I haven’t used another brand of hairdryer for my salon clients for years!
It’s powerful yet quiet!
Light to handle for the demanding of blowdrys!
Cool colors available
Purchased in July 2017 for $240.00.
People, I have never ever had sleek and healthy hair after blowdrying...this hairdryer made drying quick, easy and my hair is 100% better looking! The flow of the air, the temperature is what makes a difference compared to generic brands of hairdryers. Highley recommended!!!!!
Purchased in July 2019 for $225.00.
I honestly never thought there was any difference between hair dryers. Until I owned this hair dryer! It is so quick, so powerful, leaves my hair feeling absolutely amazing, I don’t really think it’s any quieter then any other hair dryer if I’m honest, but I didn’t find that the big selling point personally.
Second Parlux Hairdrier - amazing, love it and hope it lasts as long as the first one.
Bought this to replace old faithful Parlux compact 3500 which finally gave up after nearly 10 years of service and being dropped one too many times, the last time which shattered the impeller and ended it.
First impression was that this felt a lot lighter and better balanced than the 3500 which made it significantly easier to handle and use. Although the website showed only 500 grams difference between the 2 models the older one felt much heavier and awkward compared to this one. Although technically bigger it feels smaller and the extra a...irflow makes a noticeable difference drying my (keratin treated) curly and frizz prone hair quickly. I've had it for only a month now so its still very early days, hoping its still around in early 2028!
Best hairdrier yet!
To present the cons, it is expensive, however, that being said, it is noticeably the best I've used to date. The power is spot on and there has been no noticeable hair damage to date. The unit design is a little on the dated side, but it doesn't take anything away from the functionality.
Love this dryer
Was hesitant to spend the money on this but my daughter insisted it would be worth it as she has one. Well I have not regretted this purchase plus I bought on sale 20% off from hairwarehouse.com.au online. Blows my hair dryer in around 5 mins, powerful little thing. Pretty colour violet and not heavy to hold. It maybe over kill for household hair dryer but the speed it drys my hair means more free time for me. Aiming to get a good life out of it and never have to purchase another one since I bought based on quality. Not sure I like the diffuser which was purchase separate but maybe I don't no how to use it properly??
Disappointed after reading reviews
I accept that we all have different experiences and expectations. But I honestly wonder why so many people's 5 star reviews about this Parlux Advanced Light hair dryer differ so much from ours? While there is plentiful amounts of air, it pulses and is definitely not a smooth delivery. We believe the limited range of fan speeds could be improved and the reputed 'quietness' is by no means any better than our redundant, but long-lived hair dryer that cost so much less to purchase. I believe you need to talk with your friends who have actually purchased one and ask to try it before you consider handing over your hard earned...

Expensive but well worth it
Absolutely the best hairdryer I've ever used and would not even consider another brand despite the comparatively expensive price. Plenty of power and selectable settings, including settable cool setting. Slightly more weighty than cheaper hairdryers but this reflects quality build and performance. Used at least twice a day for various tasks, even on heatshrink tubing once, and still performs like new.
Best I've tried
I love love love this hairdryer. At first it was hard to justify spending over $200 on a hairdryer but when I factored in the amount of time it saves me when drying my very long thick hair, it is totally worth it!
It leaves your hair smooth and comes in really funky colours. It could be slightly lighter but that doesn't really bother me. It dries your hair super quickly.
Best Product I have ever purchased
Thought about it for a long time whether to get a 20 dollar hairdryer or a $200+. As you can tell I went for the latter and have no regrets. It is an absolutely expensive piece of device and obviously does way more than what I need it for, however I would make the same purchase over and over again if given the choice. It's simply amazing, it's strong and delivers everything you would expect. Drying times are super quick and for the missus and the build quality is amazing, super sturdy and super light. I use to have a old Panasonic which di...ed after 10yrs of use and was trying to find something just as good and I think this model is close if not the same! Read a lot of good reviews after a lot of searching and I think this is just one of those important things to have as a daily if you want no hassles.
Questions & Answers
Does this hairdryer give volume to fine hair? I have been considering buying one for several weeks but not sure if I will regret spending big money on it!
I probably wouldn’t consider this hairdryer being ionic and having fine hair myself. Although I’ve not tried this model my 2 previous professional dryers have been ionic ( one which was the Parlux 3200 ionic) and didn’t suit my fine hair leaving it too soft and limp. So I’d consider a non ionic dryer if it’s volume you’re after.
