Recommended Alternatives

We understand that the reviewed product may not fit what everyone is looking for so we like to also recommend some alternatives. In the case of the Babyliss 3Q, we feel the main thing that will put people off is the higher price so here are some cheaper alternatives.

Our Final Verdict

There really is not many things to dislike about the Babyliss 3Q and a whole lot of things to really like. Apart from the button placement on the handle, we cannot fault it. Its sleek black design looks amazing. Top of the range features provide you with lots of options on how you would like to dry/style your hair. Cold shot setting that actually works. A silent setting for times when you need to be extra quiet. A long 3 metre cable that eliminates being stuck in the one place whilst using. The 10 year guarantee is also a good sign that Babyliss have confidence in their product. We have also had a look around online and found stories from buyers whos heating motor has broken. They report a hassle free procedure to get it repaired and in some instances, actually being given a full brand new product. We also listed the Babyliss 3Q in our best Babyliss hair dryer list you can find here.

Babyliss have thought about just everything with this hairdryer. It is currently the most expensive hairdryer from Babyliss but as they say, you get what you pay for. If you are on the fence about purchasing this then we can only say go ahead. We fully recommend it and bet you wont be disappointed.
