The most lightweight of all the Parlux models. You’ve definitely seen the Parlux 385 around - this product is a must-have for all hair professionals. Once you’ve gone Parlux, there’s no going back.
All of the power, none of the weight. This next-generation hair dryer features all the Parlux signature bells and whistles - that is to say, ceramic and ionic technology, two concentrator nozzles, four heat settings, a cold shot button, and two speeds. With this level of customisation, you can find the perfect heat setting for your hair. Hair that is fine or thin will prefer a lower heat and lower speed setting, while someone with an abundance of thicker hair will need a higher heat, and higher speed setting. If you’re looking to create the perfect blow wave, you’ll love the inclusion of two concentrator nozzles to help you create the exact style you’re seeking. Two different sizes mean versatility in all situations - a wider nozzle for larger areas of hair, or areas where you’re looking for a looser finish, or a slimmer nozzle where you need precision. Best used in conjunction with a heat-proof brush.
Weighing less than 450 grams in weight, the incredible Parlux 385 is perfect for anyone who has mastered the art of the blow wave, or anyone concerned about arm and wrist fatigue during their hair styling sessions. The Parlux 385 is also perfect for your checked in baggage for those who don’t want to mess around with a travel dryer - it’s lightweight but still packs all the punch you’ll ever need for your hair.

Recent reviews on 385 products
This is the best hair dryer on the market, lightweight but powerful.
My hair always has a better bounce than when using others that just blast it.
Bit more expensive than others but worth it in the longrun.
