  • Two improved filters that are magnetic, removable, and washable, with a filter cleaning brush.
  • A longer, 11-foot cable.
  • Professional concentrator, that’s wider and thinner with cool grip edges.

  • Stronger motor

  • Magnetic attachments are supposed to hold stronger
  • If it has any colors (fuschia, white, black, blue, gold), it’s NOT the pro model
  • Keeping your filter clean protects the motor, which may result in faster dry times for your clients.
  • To keep the machine at optimal performance, we recommend cleaning the filter at least once a week or more frequently during high traffic periods.
  • Make sure you clean the dust residue underneath where the filters go.

Harry Josh vs. Dyson Hairdryer which is the winner?

Dyson is a hairdryer; people love it or hate it, and there seems to be no middle ground on this.  In that case, Harry Josh is more of a traditional hairdryer if you have any doubts.

Both Harry Josh and Dyson Hairdryers are NOT 110/220 voltage. SO no trips to Europe.

Apart from the Dyson learning curve, Dyson includes all accessories, whereas Harry Josh; some accessories you must purchase separately.

Dyson needs constant filter maintenance; otherwise, the heat sensors will shut the motor off.

Harry Josh, the airflow of this dryer, is as strong as the Dyson. Harry Josh has a higher watt motor and is the preferred choice of people with thick hair.

What is the BEST professional Hairdryer?

Hairdressers Prefer: the Dyson PRO model hairdryer but hate the filter maintenance and sensitivity. Dyson makes a powerful statement to your clients. Dyson is a showpiece of a hairdryer so you should be ready to talk about it if you decide to buy one.

The Dyson company gives licensed professionals a discount, but Harry Josh does NOT. 

Harry Josh’s lighter design wins our vote for being on the road.
