Dyson Supersonic

No list containing electrical goods that either blow or suck can be complete without an offering from Dyson. Comfortably the most expensive hair dryer you can buy that isn’t finished with diamonds, the Dyson mounts its regular digital motor in the handle so it is easier to handle. It has three speed settings and digital heat control so it won’t overheat and damage your hair. The design also means long hair won't get caught in the fan, which is never fun.
