The popular hair tool a cheaper alternative to the much-loved Dyson Airwrap – and now you can get it for less
With Valentine’s Day near, now is the time to pick up the perfect gift for your special someone in time for February 14. If the lady in your life is hard to buy for, you might want to head to Shark as the best-selling brand has the price of its top-rated hair gadget – but the deal isn’t running for long.
The Shark Flexstyle has earned hundreds of five-star reviews from beauty fans, and the bundle it comes in has just been reduced online ahead of the most romantic day of the year. Usually £299.99, you can get the stone-coloured version for just £279.99 with code FLEXS10, saving you £30.
This offer not only includes attachments that dry, smooth, style and curl hair without heat damage, but also a sleek storage case. Similar to the Dyson, which costs an eye-watering £479.99, Shark’s styler uses special technology that wrap, curls and sets automatically.
With more than 300 five-star reviews, it’s clear to see shoppers are loving it. One person raved: “Fantastic hair styler/dryer, easy to use and works really fast, my hair feels so good, and it’s made styling in the mornings so easy..”
A second happy customer added: “Better than a Dyson. I bought a Dyson a few years ago never really liked it just used it as a hair dryer. I read about the shark thought the brush looked good plus the diffuser. I can’t believe how much better it is than the Dyson.”
While a third also praised the hair gadget for being a cheaper alternative to Dyson. In a glowing review, the shopper said: “Works very well. Very happy with everything. Great value for money. Would definitely recommend over Dyson. Same product but better price.”
However, not all customers were impressed, with one saying: “The dryer and brushes are good, and the air wrap creates amazing curls, but they only lasted 20 minutes on my hair. I can buy a cheaper brush dryer that does the same job without risking hair burns for curls that don’t last.”
When beauty writer Bethan Shufflebotham tested out the device, she found it heavier than the Dyson and the buttons to be in a slightly awkward position in comparison to the Airwrap. She said “It performed well and definitely does what it says it will, drying hair quickly and curling in a very similar way to the Dyson, though I did find that my curls didn’t last quite as well.”
There are three heat and airflow settings, plus the Shark gadget continuously measures its airflow to ensure consistent temperature and prevent heat damage.
