Drybar Buttercup Blow Dryer Review
Okay so let me just tell you before getting into this review. An expensive hair dryer is honestly one of the last things I thought I would buy. For as long as I can remember I’ve air-dryed my hair. But recently I had started getting into drying my hair more and really wanted to invest in a nice blow dryer that would last a long time. Sometimes I’m still shocked I purchased this haha. Do you ever do that?
Okay on with the review…
What it claims:
“The Buttercup Blow Dryer features an ultra-powerful motor to get the job done fast and efficiently. NanoIonic™ Technology helps to break up water quickly for reduced dry-time. Nano beads within the dryer emit powerful negative ions that seal and smooth the hair cuticle, helping to reduce frizz, increase shine, and trap moisture inside for more healthy-looking, hydrated hair.
Price & Where to Buy:
This hair dryer is $195, and if you are used to only buying inexpensive dryers you will think this is nuts, like I did. But just remember you usually get what you pay for. If you buy cheap ones they don’t last long and you have to keep replacing them, That money then adds up to probably equal an expensive one.
I found mine at Sephora, and actually on Sephora.com you can buy a whole set with the blow dryer, a shower cap, 2 clips, a brush, and Hot Toddy Heat & UV Protectant, Triple Sec 3-in-1. The set is $199, so for $4 more you are getting a ton of extra stuff. That is what I did, I honestly don’t know who wouldn’t take advantage of that!
The dryer is the cutest shade of yellow to match the name of course. It isn’t heavy, but it isn’t all that lightweight in my opinion. It has 3 buttons, one to adjust the speed, one for the temperature, and a cool shot button (which I’m obsessed with).
How to Use:
You don’t have to follow any of these tips because I’m not the expert hair drying person, this is just what works for me.
After I wash my hair, I usually put my hair up in a Turbie Twist for about 15-30 minutes. When my hair is damp I run the John Freida Frizz Ease through my ends. I clip up about half of my hair (the clips are amazing). I blow out the bottom section, let down the top, and blow it out. I don’t normally use a brush, but you totally could to get more of a curl with volume. I usually just run my fingers through it while drying it. I finish with the cool shot, this really seals the follicle of hair and prevents frizz. If your dryer has this button, use it right when you are about to turn your dryer off. You will love it.
I am so impressed with this dryer. Little did I know how much I needed this until I started using it a few times a week. My hair is so soft, shiny, and a lot more manageable now since I have started using this. It dries my hair really fast, while being kind of quiet (which is nice for me because I always hate how loud some dryers are.) The frizz in my hair after drying has cut way down, and my hair just overall looks healthier. If you want to invest in your hair and haircare I highly suggest this bad boy. Your hair will thank you for it.
Is it worth $200? Absolutely!!
Do you have a favorite hair dryer you use? What is it?
I prefer my Karmin I love.
I’ve actually never heard of that! That’s awesome tho! :)
I hadn’t heard of this product before you mentioned it — I’ve heard of the DryBar brand before, though. Definitely a pricey tool, but I feel like you want your hair tools to be really good quality. It’s so easy to damage your hair with bad-quality tools!
I love DryBar products, if you ever get a chance to get a travel set of some of their products from Sephora I bet you would like it. It’s nice to try out some of their products without spending a lot. This hairdryer was definitely a investment for me because I just never thought I would spend that much on a hairdryer. But I’m so glad I did, I love it!
it sounds awesome! i’ve had it used on me, but have not owned one. i am glad to hear you liked it!
Yea I’m glad it works as well as I hoped, if not that thing would be right back at the store! It’s so expensive!

This sounds so worth it! I’m like you, I’ve never invested in a good hair dryer since I don’t blow-dry my hair often. I’ve been doing it more though since it’s been cold and I don’t want to wait for my hair to air dry!
Yea I really never thought I would buy an expensive hair dryer, I always used to just let my hair air dry and curl it. But I started realizing on the weekends it would take my hair forever to dry and I would miss out on doing fun things. So that was the motivation to get one, then I heard how amazing this was and it was a match made in Heaven! haha :)
