Asked for his comments, Medina says, “I love this dryer! I even ordered EU versions for our European tour since I didn’t want to be without it. Speed is really important to me backstage because there’s so little time to get Fergie ready after a quick costume change between sections of the show. The Velecta Paramount Paris dryer works faster than anything else I’ve used, and believe me I’ve tried everything. It’s not only powerful and lightweight, it’s ergonomic and compact, which is great when we travel. I also like the fact that it’s low EMF.”
The model Jason Medina uses is the super-light Velecta Paramount Paris x:Q Onyx (hand-made in France) which delivers 2000 watts of power while radically reducing noise pollution.
