Will I Find it in Kathmandu?

I am Traveling to Nepal in a week and would like to know if a hair dryer is something I will be able to find and buy there. It sounds silly but I'd rather buy one suited for their voltage than bring mine with a converter

Yes, you can find it there...no worries.

But be prepared that due to sheduled power outtakes it is not always possible to use it. So if it is important to you, you must plan your hair washing according to the load shedding shedule. Ask your hotel front desk to provide you with an updated shedule.

I always have a number 1 hair cut before leaving home to avoid all the hassles

You shouldn't have difficulties finding hair dryers. If you are staying at bigger hotels they will have hair dryers themselves, You can also request with them. Power cut is major issue however bigger hotels also have proper power supply via generator or batteries.
