Once we discovered the tourmaline ionic hair dryers, we swore we would never ever go back. It leaves our hair healthier, shiner and dries faster. So even on weekend trips we lug our huge hair dryer with us, but not since we discovered the Metropolis travel kit that contains a mini hair dryer AND min iron.
Small enough to fit in your hand, the dryer comes with world-wide voltage so take it to Paris. It comes packaged with the travel iron in a cute little travel case , though the first time I packed it I found it easier to pack each item individually.
