Nov 02, 2023Sharnee Rawson

Every customer knows the golden rule  the first item you see is rarely the best choice. Careful research is essential for houses, cars, phones and other large purchases. Hairdryers are no different! 

There are many types of hairdryers available, but it’s important to start with one of the best brands on the market. Parlux is adored by professionals and constantly boasts new accolades. Each hairdryer is made in the haircare capital of the world — Italy — and we think the attention to detail shows. 

You can start by choosing from seven different ranges to suit your needs, including Digitalyon, Alyon, Advance Light, Ardent, 3200 Plus, Powerlight 365 and Ceramic & Ionic Eco Friendly 3800.

We will explore each one below and answer the essential questions about caring for your device, costs and accessories. Together, let’s investigate the benefits of Parlux hairdryers. 



What Are The Best Parlux Hairdryers?

With Parlux, your biggest concern is choosing the right type of hairdryer to suit your needs. There are unique hairdryers for every situation, but you can expect some shared features. The most notable ones are 240 voltage, ergonomic handles, push-on nozzles, and six heat settings and speed settings. 

There are seven hairdryers to investigate, which means we won’t waste any more time. Let’s dive into this incredible collection from Parlux. 




Digitalyon is the newest hairdryer from Parlux. An evolution of the beloved Alyon model, experts have dubbed this: ‘the lightest, most powerful, full sized professional hairdryer ever produced by Parlux.’  

We have already fallen in love with the new lightweight and digital motor, which has been tested in top hairdressing salons. The record airflow of 88m3/h and long lifespan will let you create sensational hairstyles again and again. We should also mention the new wave heating element with variable geometry and power levels of 2400 watts. This means uniform heat distribution, optimised heating areas, faster drying and excellent energy saving. 

Digitalyon continues to make jaws drop with the new SLIM nozzle. This attachment is specially designed to give a “straightener effect,” especially when paired with the ionic and ceramic technology inside the body. As if that wasn’t enough, the filter and patented hair catcher system will keep the hairdryer squeaky clean. 

We will certainly be racing to grab Digitalyon off the shelves.

Key Features:

  • A lightweight and digital E-LYON motor.
  • 2400 watts and 88m3/h.
  • An ‘anti-heating’ front body. 
  • More heat with the new wave heating element.
  • Anti-bacterial technology.
  • A patented hair catcher system and new filter.
  • New slim nozzle for a ‘straightener effect.’
  • Contains ionic and ceramic ‘air ionizer tech’ technology.
  • A cold shot button is included.

  • 3 metres of super strong cable.
  • There are two speeds and four temperatures.
  • Eco-friendly.

It’s time to introduce a hairdrying legend: Alyon. This device is adored by hairdressers around the world because of the reliable design and long list of perks. Let’s unpack the finer details below.

Although Digitalyon has been described as an evolution of Alyon, there are several differences to consider before grabbing the latest model. One of the most notable is the K-advance plus professional motor, which boasts 2250W and 84m³/h. You might be surprised by these numbers — Alyon is only slightly less powerful than Digitalyon. All for a smaller price!

You can also expect a long lifespan when using the earlier model. For more than 3000 hours, it is possible to create smooth and shiny hairstyles with minimal damage. You should keep in mind that Alyon is slightly heavier than the new model, which means more strain on your arms during styling. 

Yet, many of the features are the same. You will fall in love with the new variable geometry heating, antibacterial technology, hair catcher, anti-heating front body, soft-touch switches, cold-shot button and much more. 

Key Features:

How To Care For Your Parlux Dryers

Experts know the importance of maintaining hairdryers. If proper care is taken, they can perform better and last longer. Whether you want to learn new information or refresh your skills, there are a few steps to boost the performance of your Parlux dryers.

  • Clean the filter: Although the latest models contain antibacterial and hair catcher technology, you will need to clean the filters regularly to optimise the performance and prevent overheating. Simply remove the filter and run under water to cleanse. 
  • Store properly: This one seems like common sense, but we are all guilty of leaving our hairdryers on countertops, tables and chairs. This increases the risk of damage from liquids, chemicals and other electricals. Accidents are less likely if the hairdryer is stored in a cupboard or drawer.
  • Do not strain the cord: Most Parlux cords are more than three metres long, which means there is little chance of straining the cord. We still recommend being wary of tangling or stretching the cord to prevent damage to the wiring.
  • Do not block the air vents: The quickest way to overheat and damage hairdryers is by blocking the vents. Let the air flow freely to enjoy the best results from your favourite electrical appliances.
  • Keep away from heat: This advice may seem redundant — don’t hairdryers produce heat? Although these devices are designed to handle high temperatures, too much can overwhelm them. Make sure you keep hairdryers away from sources of heat to prevent breakage.
  • Keep away from water: Most people know water and electrical appliances do not mix. To prevent breakage and injury, keep your hairdryers far away from any type of liquid.
