While few hairstyles beat Halle Berry’s iconic pixie cut, we also love the long, bouncy blowouts mastered by Gisele Bündchen, Jennifer Lopez and Beyoncé. Additional voluminous hair icons include Jane Fonda in Barbarella (Sydney Sweeney will star in the remake of the 1968 cult sci-fi film) and — more recently — Gen Z muse Matilda Djerf. One thing all of these women have in common is that they’ve inspired dozens of fans to attempt their legendary looks at home with the help of hair styling tools.
While the very viral Dyson Airwrap is a clear crowd-pleaser, some of us may be looking for a dupe or similar multi-tasking tool that gets the job done for a fraction of the price. If you’re on the hunt for well-vetted alternatives, we’ve rounded up some of the best Dyson Airwrap dupes for salon-quality blowouts (including some on sale during Amazon’s Beauty Haul event), from T3’s celebrity stylist-approved tool to Shark’s new Dyson competitor.
1. Shark FlexStyle Air Styling and Drying System
TikTok comedian Elyse Myers is a big fan of Shark’s new FlexStyle Air Styling and Drying System, which has quickly become a direct Dyson Airwrap competitor. The set comes in two system options based on your hair type, plus a bonus build-your-own system if you want to mix accessories. The Straight and Wavy system features two 1.25-in. auto-wrap curlers, one oval brush, one concentrator and one paddle brush, while the Curly and Coily system comes with all of those accessories, except the paddle brush is swapped for a curl-defining diffuser.
2. T3 AireBrush Duo Interchangeable Hot Air Blow Dry Brush
Boasting nine editorial beauty award wins, T3’s bestselling AireBrush Duo Interchangeable Hot Air Blow Dry Brush (which is 30 percent off at Amazon) comes with high-tech features including a built-in ion generator and a smart microchip to distribute precise, digitally controlled heat. It has five heat settings from 149° F to 185°F and three speed settings. Fans include celebrity hair stylist Erica Birdoes, who was the department head on Hulu’s well-reviewed comedy This Fool.
“I love that the T3 AireBrush features a paddle brush option so you can get a smooth flat style, too.” Birdoes shares. “I also love that they combine soft bristles on the brushes. You do have to get your hair mostly dry before using the Airebrush, but I feel like it locks the style in longer with less effort than the Dyson Airwrap.”
