Our Favorite Travel Hair Dryer with Dual Voltage

I have a solid set of wanderlusting girl friends who travel to a new country at least every month, if not every other week. With so much jetsetting and so little time, we’d rather bring our own travel hair dryer with dual voltage than have to rely on the hotel or Airbnb‘s junky or non-existent one. Check out our favorite dual voltage blow dryers with dual voltage suitable for any budget, and most importantly, country!

Brief Background About Dual-Voltage Hair Dryers & How They Work Abroad

Before we jump into sharing what travel hair dryer with dual voltage is our favorite, we thought we’d share the basics of dual voltage hair appliances to see if yours will work in the foreign country you’re going to or whether you need to buy a dual voltage one.

Your current hair dryer will work abroad if it’s a dual-voltage hair dryer and you have the right adapter. Simply, find out what plug adapter you’ll need in the country you’re visiting, and make sure to bring the plug adapter with your current dual-voltage hair dryer when traveling.

Your current hair dryer won’t work abroad if it’s not a dual-voltage one and you don’t have the right adapter. See which plug adapter you need for the country you’re going to here.

This is because different countries have different electrical systems. For example, the United States’ electrical system runs on 110 volt while most of Europe runs off a 220 volt system.

To make a 110 volt hair dryer work on a 220 volt system, you’d need a powerful converter, but from experience with heavy-duty converters weighing six to eight pounds, which aren’t ideal for traveling, I know that converters don’t work well with appliances that heat up. Therefore, it’s best to get a dual-voltage hair dryer and an adapter that you’ll be able to use in any country time and time again.

Must-Have Qualities in a Travel Hair Dryer with Dual Voltage

After trying a few different dual voltage blow dryers, we figured out that the best travel hair dryer had the following qualities. It must be:

  • a multi-voltage hair dryer to work in any country in the world with the proper adapter,
  • powerful so that drying our hair on vacation doesn’t take forever,
  • foldable to fit in our carry-on luggage,
  • and ideally has some kind of tech to keep hair smooth, shiny, and healthy.

The Berta dual voltage hair dryer checked off all the qualities we wanted in a travel hair dryer and has become our go-to hair dryer for Europe (my most frequented continent).


Berta 1875W Dual Voltage Hair Dryer: Our Favorite Powerful Travel Hair Dryer

The Berta 1875W is our favorite powerful travel hair dryer because it’s powerful, has two-speeds, folds up to save space, and of course, works anywhere in the world!

It’s great for both travel and home-use, and it’s definitely our favorite travel hair dryer for Europe where we’ve tested it out the most.

Despite having used the Berta as our main European travel dryer, considering that this powerful travel hair dryer works on both the US 110 volt electrical system and the European 220 volt electrical system means it will work anywhere in the world. You just need the proper plug adapter according to the country you’re visiting.

Check out the Berta hair dryer on Amazon.

Important Tip: When traveling in a country that has a 220-240 volt electrical system, you must use the hair dryer in the ‘low’ setting. This goes for any dual-voltage hair dryer that you buy!

Conair MiniPRO: Budget and Smallest Travel Hair Dryer with Dual Voltage

Although we love the Berta dual voltage hair dryer, we had to also mention the Conair MiniPRO with its beautiful red exterior. It is the smallest travel hair dryer with dual voltage we could find whose size doesn’t sacrifice functionality.

It’s not as powerful as the Berta but it is smaller, folds up, and still has tourmaline ceramic technology that keeps your hair shiny and smooth. It’s also cheaper than the Berta making it a good option as a budget travel hair dryer.
