In a comparative product review of the Shark FlexStyle vs. the Dyson Airwap director Jenny Jin noticed that both products had many of the same features. Most notably might be the FlexStyle’s Coanda airflow technology that wraps your hair around the barrel of the curler as well as the interchangeable attachments that straighten, smooth, curl and even diffuse your hair  Ultimately, after testing both products, Jin declared the Shark the winner: “At $350 [now $298], the Shark FlexStyle is more in line with the price of a fancy blow dryer or flat iron, but with way more bells and whistles. For me, it wins by an (ahem) hair, because I liked its additional features and customizability. Based on your hair type and styling needs, you can build your own system, choosing from three out of six available attachments to customize your FlexStyle, giving you the most bang for your buck.”
