ICYMI, the Dyson Airwrap has been the most coveted hair tool since it first dropped in 2018. I mean, a hair styler that can curl, blow-dry, straighten and give you bouncy ’90s supermodel waves without intense heat damage? Obviously, everyone wants one.
Not only is the Dyson Airwrap almost always sold out (you can take a peep here to see if your favorite retailer has it in stock), but it’s also going to cost you a pretty penny — $599.99, to be exact. Yes, it’s steep, but think about the years of research and the high-tech engineering that went into the product.
The Airwrap utilizes the aerodynamic phenomenon called the Coandă effect, meaning the tool can curve the airflow and attract hair to its various attachments, allowing users to dry and style their hair effectively and without excessive heat.
Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler, $599.99
While you can shop the new Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler, the original first-generation Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler or expertly-refurbished models at both Dyson.com and the Dyson Outlet, the hair tool is still a major financial investment.
If you’re not ready or can’t afford to make that investment yet, Amazon sells a handful of hair tools that shoppers swear by! From blow dryer brushes to TikTok-approved curling barrels, scroll down to shop 10 alternatives to the Dyson Airwrap. Everyone deserves a little Prime Day treat!
Best affordable Dyson Airwrap alternatives
1. Revlon 1200W Perfect Style Hot Air Kit, $24.74 (Orig. $31.99)
Amazon Shopper Review: “With this brush, styling my hair became very easy, and it now takes me twice less time to do it than before! Tip: before you use the Revlon brush, make sure your hair is not wet, but slightly damp/close to being dry.”
Amazon Shopper Review: “The T3 does all of this and doesn’t dry out my hair like the other products do. The cool setting allows me to lock in my style easily if I want to flip the ends under. You do need to dry your hair (air or blow dryer) about 80% before using this, as per the instructions, but the actual styling is faster for me than with the other products I’ve owned.”
3. REVLON One-Step Volumizer Original 1.0 Hair Dryer and Hot Air Brush, $32.49 (Orig. $39.87)
Amazon Shopper Review: “I do not have hairstyling experience, neither have I blown dried my hair, and my hair looks like I went to the hair salon.”
4. MIUOPUR Automatic Hair Curling Iron with Ceramic Ionic Barrel, $39.19 (Orig. $59.99)
Amazon Shopper Review: “It takes a little getting used to but it is easy enough to use. It is not heavy and your arm does not get tired. The best part for me is that the curls last and I am on day two. So all in all, I am very happy with my purchase. If you are on the fence, I urge you to buy it because you won’t be sorry.”
5. Drybar Reserve 3-in-1 Interchangeable Blow Dryer, $292.20 (Orig. $349)
Amazon Shopper Review: “The dryer is so lightweight and that means a lot for someone with arthritis in their hands. The controls are easy to twist and to determine which twisty does what. There is a cleanable filter at the bottom as well. Lastly, there is a cold shot button to hold down that turns the air cooler and keeps your style in place.”
Amazon Shopper Review: “This brush is easy to use and heats up quickly. I used it to dry and straighten my daughter’s 4C hair and it turned out great. The only issue I experienced was the temperature control buttons are on the handle so I was unknowingly adjusting the temperature while drying hair. Other than that this drying brush is lightweight and does a good job.”
7. Shark HD120BRN Blow Dryer HyperAIR, $238 (Orig. $249.99)
Amazon Shopper Review: “Drying time is maybe 12 minutes for my 3B curls. I can see a difference in how my hair feels. Even use the blow attachment on my mini golden doodle and it dries her up in 10 minutes. Before it took a good 45 minutes to an hour. So happy with my purchase.”
8. Hair Dryer Brush Set, 4 in 1 Hot Air Brush, $47.99 (Orig. $53.99)
Amazon Shopper Review: “The multiple settings give you exactly what you need, and it even comes with a couple of sectioning clips (use them, they are SO helpful) and a heat glove (which I only use when changing the tools). Great value, great hot tool!”
9. ghd Rise Voluminizing Hot Brush, $189
Amazon Shopper Review: “My kinky hair is almost completely straight; much better than the results I got with my old straightening comb because I can get the brush on my roots! No burned scalp, fingers or ears! There are less expensive brushes out there but I believe you get what you pay for.”
10. Drybar Double Shot Oval Blow-Dryer Brush, $124 (Orig. $154.08)
Amazon Shopper Review: “The lowest heat setting on the Drybar brush is warm enough to dry my thin/fine hair, but not so hot that I can’t even touch the barrel. My hair was significantly less frizzy after using this.”
