Counter Service

Long time stylist and salon owner, Jeffrey Hall never understood why hair dryers are shaped like guns. Noting that their form is actually at odds with their function causing wrist, shoulder, and even neck pain, Jeffrey decided to take matters into his own hands. With the creation of AirPhysics, Jeffrey has given the everyday hair dryer a complete makeover. This patented hands-free blow dryer rests on any hard surface and activates with the touch of a button leaving both your hands free to comb, brush and style your hair while it dries. Unlike traditional hair dryers, AirPhysics directs airflow upwards for maximum volume and body. You don’t have to pick it up, but should you choose to do so, the lightweight ergonomic design is a pleasure to hold.

    This hands-free hair dryer was created in order to prevent the painful wrist, shoulder, and neck injuries that have been attributed to traditional gun-type hair dryers. We originally created this hands-free method of drying for use in our own salon, and we're thrilled to be able to offer it to all of you for use in your own home. Please feel free to ask any questions - we're an open book!

    Does this hands-free hair dryer have an ionic or tourmaline technology? Does it need a defuser and if so, do you have that as an accessory? I'm liking the idea very, very much.....

    Hi Toni,

    We have been brain wash to suck the moisture too fast from hair. AirPhysics is Air… It is all about the direction of airflow/heat but keeping the hair healthy and shinny. Yes we have a diffuser also for wavy or curly hair. Thank you

    Hi Jill,

    Great question. I have thick and curly hair as well and I have found that this dryer is strong enough and hot enough to get the job done. It takes me about 25 minutes to dry my hair but the nice thing about Airphysics is I do not have to be holding the dryer the entire time, which makes a huge difference. Hope this helps.

    Thanks Meredith! Also with the Finisher attachment you can straighten hair because of heat and the direct airflow to your brush. Keep firm tension with brush and let the finisher do the work.

    Short, Medium or Long deciding what works for you… NO attachment might be the answer... using the accelerator I would recommend for short hair or no attachment at all. AirPhysics is design with a heat shield if you do not use one of the attachments,,,,no more burns to the scalp.

    The dryer will not get hot...it has 2 heat shields but.... the attachments will so use a towel if hot or let cool before changing out. With you pup? If he or she is ok with your dryer now I'm sure it will be fine.

    We have Wally and he doesn't mind.

    Although this product is a great concept and will definitely help people who have some debilitating problems, I do have to rebut some of your comments about what it will do for the average person. I agree that ionic dryers have been marketed as the end all beat all, but the reality of it is that on very thick, unruly, hard to dry hair, ionic dryers perform better and dry hair faster up to 10-15 minutes faster. Fine hair has a tendency with ionic dryers to get frizzy because it dries too fast. The other issue I have with your concept is that this dryer creates better volume, body and shine. We as professionals know that drying from the inside out with lift for volume cannot be achieved if the ends are dried first. Also, drying the hair with the airflow going with the grain of the cuticle creates shine. This dryer blows upwards against the grain which can cause the cuticle to raise and loss of shine and frizziness will occur. I love the idea of this dryer for the persons with the inability to hold a dryer traditionally and also the straight, lightweight design, but it still needs to be hand held to get salon finished hair.

    @Robin

    Thank you for your comments. As a Salon owner educator and now inventor I understand your concerns with how AirPhysics works.

    AirPhysics has 2 attachments: Accelerator for direct airflow at root area to ends for volume.

    The Finisher has direct airflow around brush 360 degrees for straightening or for curl to keep hair smooth and shinny.

    You as a stylist and myself can use ionic without burning hair. The average person has a tendency to not keep dryer moving with brush..... as you stated.. with the grain. As you see in the video with our model, she is using AirPhysics to get moisture out of her hair first and then use one of the attachments to finish her look for volume,shine and body.

    AirPhysics is designed for hands free and direct contact as hand held dryers.

    Thank you Robin!
