Infiniti by Conair Pro 1875 Watt Styler
It isn't always easy to find a hair dryer that works well and doesn't cost more than $100, but this cute, lightweight green dryer is lauded for its ability to enhance shine, dry hair quickly, and travel well. It isn't the strongest dryer on the market and its cord does not retract into the handle, which was a bone of contention among some users, but you can't beat the price and it works especially well on straight hair.
