Brad Graham: Hey guys, how are you doing? Brad Graham from BradGrahamTV.com. Today, we’re reviewing another blow dryer. This is the Hai Classic SST, Super Squirt Tourmaline, I think that stands for. I’m not quite sure. Do you know what stands for those? It just means sexy. This is I got to tell you. We’ve got them here in the shop. We got them in every station. We did a review a little while back. It was a great blow dryer too. I think it’s the fabulous acrylic. But this one is so light. It’s ridiculous how light it is. And I’m going to go through some of the features. It’s a very nice box. It was so nice, I didn’t even want to throw it out. I keep it on the shelf. I don’t really.
But it also has some other products here for your ultimate styling success. Not only do they have the Tourmaline SST Pro, this is not known yard sale special, infused with Nano Tourmaline. Sorry! But they also have some, well, I like the color. It’s a nice color too. Do I need some of that? Okay! I’m trying to get you in here. You like the color, girls?
Female: Love it!
Brad Graham: It’s a sexy silver. They also have some other pieces that come with it. They also have the Hai II. The Twig, which is a very, I’m assuming, it’s a little flat iron, thin, like me. They also have the convertible, which is probably a regular sized flat iron. It can curl hair and straighten hair. I haven’t got into those. They’re going to send them to me free of this fantastic demonstration and we’ll get into it. And then they also have not stick, oh sorry, the new stick. That was the Finish version of the brush.
Anyhow, let’s get into this great little blow dryer. Hey, there’s a lot of it in the market. You see, it’s a little light. This thing is only 13 ounces, nice number. Let’s go over it. First thing, heat settings, the buttons are lovely. It’s got low, medium and who needs a math, which is all what you need. It’s got three, actually, two different heat settings, hot and hot-her. With a cold shut button right here. What’s great about the cold shut button, when you press it, you don’t have to hold it in. You just press it.
It stays cold. Twisting novel, nozzle, did I say novel, nozzle, sorry. It twists around, comes off, goes on equally, look at that, fantastic. It also has a rear end like everyone. This is the part that sucks. There, look at that. So, when you’ve got all your hair and handbags and all that, this flips up like that and you can clean this part, very nice. Look at that. Also has a long cord. It’s not as long as the fabulous one and the Q8 but it’s long enough ‘coz you know it’s long enough to get out of the frame.
So, I mean, I didn’t really measured but I’d say it’s a solid eight foot. The other one was a 10-foot, remember? It was still long how is, you know, da, da, da, you know. Wonderful in a blow dryer, very, very light. I could do this pretty much for almost a half an hour. I wouldn’t break too much of a sweat, very nice blow dryer. The girls liked it. Good little blow dryer from Hai. We’re going to go over the back.
It says here, it’s 1,800 watts. That’s a lot of watts. The other one I think was 1,600. You usually get them 1,600 or 1,400. The more wattage, the more money, the better, you want lots of watts. It’s got a whole description here, which I would bore you with if I got into it. But let me tell you, really like this blow dryer. Pick yourself up for one. I think they’re under $500.00. So, they’re somewhat affordable. No, I’m joking. Uh, I don’t know what we paid. I’ll ask the girlfriend. How much do I need to twist her?
Brad Graham: She doesn’t know either. She doesn’t really know either. It has the non-slip texture grip handle, ergonomically straight and wonderful contour on it. Heat concentrator included, that’s the nozzle. It spins around like that too, great little blow dryer. Thanks for watching BradGrahamTV.com. We give this a single or at least a double thumbs up. Keep the box. It’s very nice. They got that kind of shimmer to it too. Try out some of the other products we got. We got a whole to get our hands on those media, nice review.
