Silent Might


I wake up earlier than everyone in my family—my husband and two children—because if I didn’t, I’d never get everything done. In the hour before they rise, I pack lunches, feed the cat, clean the litter box, make coffee, answer work emails, etc. There is little time to shower, but I squeeze that in too. Though, up until recently, I could never use my hairdryer after or it would wake everyone up. Now, I use the Centrix Q-Zone Quiet Dryer ($200; This energy efficient 1500-watt dryer (that dries hair as quickly as an 1875-watt model) isn’t totally silent, but I’ve found that if I use it in the bathroom with the door shut, no one is woken up! My favorite new hairstylist Adrian De Berardinis owner of the eponymous New York City salon says it has transformed his workplace. “I can actually talk to my clients as I style their hair!” It’s a (quiet) beauty revolution. —DG
