What do the experts think?
“As good as most professional hairdryers on the market and great value for money. Very powerful in both the power and heat areas and the long cord is a real bonus”. Lee Cohen (Australian Hairdresser of the Year 2004) Reds Salon and Spa Cairns QLD
“Very light (making it easy to use) so it came as quite a shock to turn it on and get the best ever heat and air, very strong. Perfect for diffuse drying curls and waves, in fact this hairdryer is staying in the salon just for that purpose”. Emilaino Vitario eSalon Warronga, Sydney, NSW
"It looks good and is easy to use and the attachments are a great idea. We especially like the way the nozzle and diffuser connect (twist) to the hairdryer itself and the fact it has a hanging hoop to have it hooked in a convenient place is great. The high power allows hair to dry within minutes". Mirella Heuperman Biba Academy, Sydney
"We liked the stylish design, its light weight, the cool shot button to set the new form, the variable fan speed and heat but most of all the ionic technology" Emilio Cataldo, Catalodo's Canberra City ACT
“Plenty of heat, plenty of blow and very good looking” Paul Dare. Dare and Dare Adelaide.

Luppino of Luppino's Hairdressing

Salon Finish Pro
found the unit light and easy to use. Its added features
like the cool button and the diffuser were its best points.
We also liked the power point plug which made it very
easy to pull in and out of the socket. The design is very
modern and even small enough for travel. All in all it

Hughes and Paula of the multi-award winning Meika
Hair in Melbourne, took some time to check out the Sunbeam
Salon Finish Heated Rollers.
design is fantastic, good quality and very durable. The
hot rollers also look great with a neat and attractive layout
that is easy to use. The best points are the different roller
sizes and pin holders, we also liked the velvet on the inside
of the rollers. All in all we found them very easy to use,
we give the rollers 10 out of 10".
