Packing the perfect suitcase could be considered an art form. It takes hours to curate the right outfits, gather all your toiletries, and, most importantly, stock up on your favorite travel-size beauty and skincare essentials to save room in your suitcase (and avoid scrutiny from TSA). Which brings me to Sephora's cult-favorite travel hair dryer: the GHD Wanderlust Flight Travel Hairdryer.
Considering the amount of space a regular-size hair dryer takes up in a small carry-on, this mini version is a transformative space saver for any strategic packer. The model has accrued just shy of 1500 "loves" from Sephora customers, with reviewers writing that it's "perfect for the frequent traveler or city dweller with limited storage space" and a huge upgrade from awful hotel hair dryers. Sephora claims it's capable of delivering "gorgeous, salon-quality blowouts" despite its small size.
Self's beauty and style editor adds that it's small and lightweight enough that she doesn't have to take any "arm breaks" when blowing out her hair. Plus, she says, it's "hot enough to get her thick, natural hair straight." The dryer has two heat settings and a 1200-watt motor, making it ideal for all hair types, spanning straight, wavy, curly, coiled, and tightly coiled.
