What to look for when choosing a hair dryer for Faroe Islands

When looking for the best hair dryer for Faroe Islands choose a robust but lightweight dual-voltage model that works with a 230 volt Faroese power outlet power outlet, has ALCI safety plug, long power cord and a folding handle. For drying thick hair buy one with a bundled diffuser that uses a faster 1600+ watt motor.

What should I look for when buying a travel hair dryer?

  1. Modern hair dryers might feature a 'cool shot' option for quickly cooling hair down after drying to hold a style but this feature is missing in smaller models.
  2. A travel hair dryer needs to be dual voltage in order to operate with a 230 volt Faroese power outlet.
  3. Try looking for lightweight travel dryers which are durable enough to survive being transported in baggage, models which have a handle which folds will mean more space for packing other items.
  4. Don't risk buying the cheapest hair dryer available, as well as safety issues there is a greater chance that the dryer could break during travelling abroad due to cheaper components.
  5. Suitable hair dryers for styling allow you to alter the temperature and speed settings with 2 options, hotter faster speeds will quickly dry thicker hair whilst a lower temperature with a slower speed will reduce damage to your hair.
  6. The safest travel hair dryers will include an 'ALCI' safety plug which reduces the risk of the motor overloading and starting electrical fires, you can recognise these models by the the 2 'test' and 'reset' buttons.
  7. If you have curlier or thicker hair then you could need a travel blow dryer which has a more powerful motor. A higher wattage ceramic dryer that includes a diffuser will dry hair faster to avoid damage.
  8. It could be more convenient and cheaper to buy a hair dryer which includes both a concentrator and diffuser from the manufacturer rather than scouring stores to look for expensive third party attachments.
  9. Some hotel rooms might have a mirror positioned too far away from a power outlet making it hard to dry hair, so when buying a travel blow dryer find the longest power cord possible.

Both an Hot Tools 1044 Ionic Travel Dryer [2] or the X5 Superlite Ceramic Ionic [11] are recommended because they both have powerful motors, ionic outlets and included diffusers, avoid buying a blow dryer with a motor which is less powerful than 1600 watts as it will struggle to dry thicker hair.

Faroe Islands power outlets

What frequency is used in a Faroese power outlet?

The frequency in a Faroese power outlet is 50Hz.

What is the mains voltage in Faroe Islands?

Power outlets in Faroe Islands are 230 volts.

Which travel adapter do you need when using a hair dryer in Faroe Islands?

There are four different types of power outlets used in Faroe Islands, types E, C, F and K with the primary power outlets being type E:

  • Plug Type C - You can identify the power outlet by the two round adjacent holes next to each other for live and neutral.
  • Plug Type E - The sunken round plug outlet can be recognised by two 4.8mm holes 19mm adjacent to each other for live and neutral with a single metal earth pin protruding the top to form a triangle shape.
  • Plug Type F - The circular wall socket, technically called the type F power outlet or Schuko plug, can be identified by two circular holes 19 mm next to each other and a pair of thin metal grounding clips above and below.
  • Plug Type K - This power socket, also known as a type K power outlet, looks like 3 holes forming an inverted triangular shape with the bottom hole being in a semicircular shape.

A Type E power adapter [6] will allow you to use a 230 volt hair dryer in Faroe Islands; read the step by step instructions below for full details of how to use a hair dryer in Faroe Islands with a power adapter. Please note that unless you that have a dual voltage hair dryer you might also need to use a voltage converter.

Which travel adapter do you need when using a hair dryer in Faroe Islands?

Dual voltage hair dryers

Is my hair dryer dual voltage?

Single voltage hair dryer

Is my hair dryer dual voltage?

An easy way how to tell if your hair dryer can accept a dual voltage power outlet is to look for either a sticker or numbers printed on the base, handle or plug of your hair dryer. The location might depend on the make or model of your hair dryer, it could also be written on the box or in the instruction manual. Some dual voltage models will change automatically but other hair dryer models will feature a button which allows you to toggle between different voltage ranges depending on which country you are in.

  • Single voltage could say a specific number - such as 110V. If this number matches the 230 volts used in Faroe Islands then you should be able to use your hair dryer with a Faroese power outlet.
  • Single voltage could also have a small voltage range with a dash to accomodate small voltage fluctuations - such as 100-120V. If the 230 volts used in a Faroese power outlet falls within the range shown on your hair dryer then you can use it in Faroe Islands.
  • Dual voltage will typically say a large range separated with a slash - such as 100/240V. Your hair dryer will be capable of being used in Faroe Islands or any other country if these numbers are shown.

How should you use a dual voltage blow dryer in Faroe Islands?

  1. First ensure that you are have a dual voltage hair dryer or that it will work with a 230 volt power outlet.
  2. If the hair dryer is dual voltage then ensure it is switched to work in the 220-240V range. The switch is normally found on the handle or base of the blow dryer and may require a coin or screwdriver to turn.
  3. Plug your dryer into the power adapter for Faroe Islands, also plug in the power adapter into the Faroese power outlet.
  4. It's normal for a majority of travel hair dryer models operating within the 220-240 volt range to only work safely on their lowest speed setting - however this speed and temperature should still be adequate enough for drying hair. We recommend checking the hair dryer instructions to see if this rule is appropriate for your model of dual voltage dryer to stop the risk of overheating.
  5. Your hair dryer can now be operated in Faroe Islands.

How should you change the voltage on a travel hair dryer?

  1. Normal dual voltage hair dryers have either a switch or dial which toggles between 2 types of voltages however some models can automatically detect the voltage used in Faroe Islands.
  2. The dial or switch will normally require a coin or screwdriver to change the hair dryer to the right voltage between a 220v-240v range or the 110v-120v range.
  3. In addition to switching this it's worth making a note of the 2 switch positions as the painted numbers can occasionally fade on some models of travel dryer.

Travelling to Faroe Islands with a hair dryer

Is it safe to bring a domestic blow dryer to Faroe Islands?

It is preferable to bring a dual voltage travel hair dryer as opposed to bringing your existing domestic blow dryer to Faroe Islands as it is safer to assume that it will work with the 230 volt power outlets used with a Faroese power outlet (as long as you use the correct plug adapter for Faroe Islands). Travel hair dryers typically feature a folding handle and are much lighter, this will help reduce the size and weight in travellers luggage compared to bringing a domestic blow dryer.

Please note that packing an expensive domestic hair dryer could put it at risk because of potential loss or damage in your luggage by an airport baggage handler in Faroe Islands. The inconvenience and costs involved in repairing or replacing an expensive specialised domestic blow dryer in Faroe Islands might be higher than buying a cheaper dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] with a suitable travel hair dryer case [18] before setting off .

Can I pack a blow dryer in my hand luggage to Faroe Islands?

Folding travel hair dryer with cord wrapped for carry on

Can I pack a blow dryer in my hand luggage to Faroe Islands?

According to the TSA guidelines for hair dryers [19] there is no restriction on carrying a mains powered blow dryer in your hand luggage through airport security in the United States. The TSA recommends that you should verify that your airline who is taking you to Faroe Islands will allow hair dryers onboard and that it will fit in the overhead bin or underneath the seat of the aircraft. Packing your hair dryer in a dedicated heat resistant protective travel hair dryer case [18] leaves it easily accessible for airport security checks, it can be packed away quickly avoiding a tangle of wires in your carry on luggage (the TSA advices wrapping wires tightly around electronic items). If you intend to bring fragile or expensive hair dryers in your hand held luggage then it is advisable to use hard carry on luggage as this offers the greatest protection against knocks and bumps during your journey.

Do hotel rooms in Faroe Islands have hair dryers?

Hotel hair dryer

Do hotel rooms in Faroe Islands have hair dryers?

This will all depend on the hotel or bed and breakfast and the quality of the room. Hotel room hair dryers are normally found in the bathroom, these could be of a slower air hose variety, or might be located in the bedroom cupboard, wardrobe or drawer. In budget hotels, motels and hostels a shared hair dryer might be available at reception, however that might involve waiting in turn for other guests. If you are uncertain as to hotel hairdryer policy you could either telephone your hotel in Faroe Islands or look on the hotel web site to find out if a suitable hairdryer available for guests. Hotel hair dryers are adequate but are typically rudimentary models with no diffuser and notorious for low heat and slower air speeds. For those concerned with hygiene should check for grime from other guests on a shared hair dryer as room service might not have scraped this off when cleaning the room.

Remember, if you are in doubt either call ahead to your hotel in Faroe Islands or bring a suitable dual voltage travel hair dryer [2].

Power converters for Faroe Islands

Will a power converter work with a normal hair dryer in Faroe Islands?

A suitable voltage transformer [10] (or power converter) allows a hair dryer using a different voltage to operate with the 230 volt power outlet used in Faroe Islands. A power converter is more suitable for travellers who wish to bring along their own hair dryer, however it can be a lot less expensive to purchase a dedicated dual voltage travel hair dryer [2] than it is to purchase a power converter. A power converter is also significantly bulkier and heavier than a travel hair dryer making a power converter less suitable when packing in luggage.

What is the difference between a plug adapter and a voltage converter for Faroe Islands?

Voltage converter

What is the difference between a plug adapter and a voltage converter for Faroe Islands?

A lightweight, small and cheap power adapter [20] (or plug adapter) will change the shape of the plug on your hair dryer to slot into a power outlet found in Faroe Islands, whereas a heavier and more expensive power converter [10] will convert a 230 volt Faroese power outlet to work with a non-230 volt hair dryer.
