These Hair Tools Are Just Like the Dyson Airwrap—and They’re All Under $180
Ah, the Dyson Airwrap. Chances are you’ve come across this futuristic-looking hair tool, whether it be on your TikTok FYP or listening to an influencer rave about it on the ‘Gram. But in case you’re not up to speed on the hype surrounding this powerhouse blow dryer, here’s a quick synopsis.
Think of the Airwrap like the Hermès Birkin of hair tools, both for its incredible quality and, ahem, bougie price tag. Instead of the ceramic plates you typically see on hot tools, it utilizes warm air—and several styling attachments—that not only smooth and fluff up your tresses, but actively reduce heat damage, too. In total, the kit will set you back around six hundred dollars, so it’s definitely an investment.
However, if you’re not ready to fork over that much cash but have some major hair tool FOMO (because same), never fear. We did some digging and found four Dyson Airwrap dupes that are so similar in function and end result, you might actually mistake it for the real deal. And best of all? They’re all under $180. Three cheers for treating your strands for less.
1. T3 AireBrush Duo Interchangeable Hot Air Blow Dry Brush
It’s simple: This is the trusty sidekick you need for nailing a salon-level blowout right in your own bathroom. Nifty features galore, this dryer brush comes equipped with an impressive 15 heat and speed combinations, two different styling attachments—one flat brush for straightening and one round brush for curling—and it utilizes a negative ion generator to reduce frizz, boost shine and breathe new life back into your locks. Oh, and did we mention it works on all hair types?
2. IG Inglam 4-in1 Blowout Brush
When it comes to styling your next ‘do, using an airstyler on slightly damp hair is an absolute must. Why? It gives the hair a stronger hold, allowing it to keep its shape for longer while cranking up the overall volume and shine of your hair. (Basically, there’s no more worrying about your fresh curls dropping ten minutes after styling them.) So it should come as no surprise that we love this brush’s small pre-styling drying attachment, which works wonders at speeding up the drying process and allowing your hair to stay just the right amount of damp for easier styling.
3. BaByliss Air Style 1000
Consider this proof that you don’t need to sacrifice affordability for quality. This pick isn’t just budget-friendly, it also offers many of the same perks as the Airwrap—for a fraction of the cost. Styling with minimal heat damage? Check. Zapping frizz and boosting shine? Double check. Three different styling attachments? Yep, you guessed it. Check. But one of our favorite features is the curling attachment’s tapered barrel, which gives you a range of curl shapes to play around with.
4. InfinitiPro by Conair Hot Multi-Styler
Offering you three attachment heads—a nylon bristle brush for volume, a curling iron for bouncy waves and a paddle brush for quick and easy straightening—this tool covers all the basic necessities for a quality airstyler. Pro tip: After you’ve finished styling your hair, go over it with the heat setting switched to cool. This gives your locks a strong hold that will last for hours. Thank us later.
