In 2016, Ryan and Jonathan set out to change the beauty industry with a product that could revolutionize the way hair is dried, and in turn change the way we think about possibilities in beauty. They were told their idea was impossible...but you know how that story ends.
Their combined experience in beauty and in engineering paved the way for them to dream up, then execute, the first cordless and infrared hair dryer. The VOLO Go Cordless Dryer is their first in a series of heat styling tools and hair products.
