Portable Salon Dryers

A portable hood dryer also known as Hard Bonnet Tabletop Hooded Hair Dryers  are typically  the best solution for mobile hairdressers as you can bring it along wherever you go. Generaly they are lower in quality than the other options above so I would only go for this if your work requires you to be mobile.
