A blow dryer would need to have a fan. A hair dryer could be a towel or any other device that dries the hair. A blow dryeris a hand held hair dryer that "blows" the hair as it dries it. There are two types of hair dryers, portable and non-portable. The portable type has a hood, similar to a shower cap, and has a hose attached to unit and the cap. The warm air goes from the unit to the cap through the hose to dry the hair. The non-portable type, which is used in hair salons, is attached to the back of a chair. Hair dryers are used mostly on hair that has curlers in it.
