    She was on her way out.. any suggestions for a good replacement? Not sure I want to invest in a pibbs though. She was a standing Babyliss pro from Sally.

    How long did the Babyliss last you? Did you like it? My mom has had that one for about 10 years and hers still works fine.

    I was going to suggest you just repurchase that one. It's one of the most reliable that I know of, especially at it's price point.

    I second this. although I can't vouch for it's lifespan. I've had mine since 2013 but haven't given it very much use.

    I think I have this one back at home. I also think my mom broke it since I moved lol.
    I don't think it's as roomy as the LCL.

    I'm a Pibbs 514 lover. It's extremely sturdy/well made with high quality parts....worth every penny.

    I did have to repurchase the pole part after like 6-7 years because the adjustable height feature broke. However but the hood, and everything else, has held up perfectly after almost 9 years of use 1x - 2x per week.

    Oh, girl... I saw the title and literally thought you meant the attic. That's where my hooded dryer is :lol: I have the Babyliss Pro (Ionic) as well. I've had mine since 2013/2014

    I got the el cheapo from Amazon that still works. Got it in 2008 or 09. I think you can still find it for $89.99 there. Looks like the LCL model.

    I have the LCL. It's good, though I don't use it often. You can get it from Amazon or directly from LCL.

    i have it and i don't like it. it gets "hot" yet where my old tabletop hooded dryer would dry my twists in 15 minutes, this takes nearly an hour. its hard for me to adjust the height and get it to stay and i've already broken one of the legs.
