The Lightweight CHI Nano Hair Dryer: Styling & Power With Less than One Pound

July is the time when your client is looking for that stunning summer blowout, but sometimes creating those fabulous looks can literally be a painful process!

One possible reason? The average hair dryer weighs in at two pounds. Over time that can amount to significant damage for your wrists, elbows, neck and back.

The CHI Nano Hair Dryer is able to reduce some of the ailments that come with being a professional stylist with its amazing light weight structure (less than a pound!) yet still delivers gorgeous styling precision with its powerful 1875 W DC Motor and a dual vent air-intake system.

Watch Farouk Systems Global Artist Rocky Vitelli create some of the season’s must-have styles with ease using his lightweight CHI Nano Hair Dryer.
