Don, I bought this one at Lowes...think I paid about $50 for it. It has 3 speeds and the head rotates about 120 degrees or so. Its actually a floor dryer but works great in the studio cuz its small and easy to move around. On high speed it will blow the skirt off any model...and at low speed it will provide that gentle hair movement....



PLEASE NOTE: "Accessory shown" with blower above above is NOT included in the floor price of $50.00. "Accessory" CAN BE purchased at an additional price; however, it has been my experience that these "accessories" can be very expensive.

Lowe's or Home Depot, 36" industrial fan. Good price, but then you gotta store it.

the fan that bobbyG shows you, i think, is a great tool. what i like about it is the airstream is narrowly focused so you can blow the model's hair without blowing her clothing or visa versa. btw, if you can find a good deal on a VariAC, go for it. to be able to control the AC is awesome. i have one and i can make the fan turn very slowly VERY slowly if i want.

Just a note.: Stanley makes this blower, or one just like it, and I saw them everywhere this summer. They were at Wal-Mart and all of the home stores.

..and an assitant. Better control. You can get an 18V battery one too for outdoors.
