As far as hair dryers go, most look relatively similar—except for Hoang M Nguyen's 'Comet' hair dryer. This spherical salon staple nixes the standard handle in favor of a round, all-in-one design. And instead of sliders or buttons, the pressure of your grip will determine the strength of the hair dryer's airflow.

The 'Comet' hair dryer's cordless design eliminates clutter, and a magnetic charging base ensures that dryer is ready when you are.
