Creating hairstyles with Dyson Airwrap alternatives and dupes
The Dyson Airwrap, with a cost of over €480 as of January 2023, is quite an investment. 💰
Although testing has shown it to be an excellent hair styler, we realise it may be too expensive for some.
The good news is that many cheap alternatives and dupes are available online.
These alternatives aren't only cheaper but also have some great features.
Let's find out why these cheaper alternatives can be a good choice. 👇🏻
Getting tighter and long-lasting curls
The Dyson Airwrap styles hair with warm air and avoids high heat.
This method is gentle on your hair and provides natural-looking curls that last up to two days.
However, for specific hair types, such as very thin or curly hair, this may not work as well.
If you have thinner hair or don't want to spend a fortune on the Dyson, you can try some excellent alternatives.
However, usually the alternatives use a higher heat that could harm your hair over time. 🕒
At this point, heat protection sprays are beneficial.
They act like a shield for your hair and form a protective layer that reduces the direct effect of heat on your hair.
This helps to prevent problems like dryness and hair breakage caused by frequent heat styling.
Don't forget to spray on a heat protectant before you do your curls to keep your hair looking its best.
Styling dry hair
The Dyson Airwrap recommends styling your hair when they’re 60 to 80% dry for shiny and radiant results.
But you can style your hair even if it's completely dry with the Airwrap.
Likewise, Dyson Airwrap alternatives can also style your dry hair effectively.
Getting a blowout hairstyle
With the Dyson Airwrap, creating a professional blowout is easy because the round brush adds volume to the hairline.
However, there are also Dyson dupes that can achieve similar results. 😍
Styling for smoother hair
The Dyson Airwrap offers a smoothing brush for drying and straightening hair.
It works wonders on frizzy hair, making it look smooth and bouncy instead of flattening it like a straightening iron.
But Dyson dupes are equally up to the task of making your hair look sleek. 👩🏻🦳
Can you create good hairstyles with Dyson Airwrap alternatives?
If you like creating hairstyles, you don't always have to buy the most expensive tool. 💷
You can also use more affordable options that do the same job as the Dyson Airwrap.
These less expensive tools also come with different attachments so that you can try out many looks.
While the Dyson Airwrap is known for being gentle on the hair and being high quality, these cheaper alternatives can also work well.
If you don't style your hair often, a cheaper device may be all you need. 🤑
However, if you style your hair frequently, it might be worth spending more money on a device like the Dyson Airwrap to keep your hair healthy.
Our testing method - How the Smart Home Fox UK test hair stylers
When we test hair styling appliances such as hair dryers, heat brushes and straighteners, we first do a lot of research on the Internet. 👩🏼💻
We look at what independent groups that test these devices and people who have bought them have to say.
Then we buy these products and try them out at home. 🛍️
This way, we can see how well they work and share our experience with you.
The styling test
In our trials, we use these hair tools to make different styles on people with all hair types - from short to long, fine to coarse.
This way, we can see how the tools work on different hair conditions. 👱🏻♀️
Then we look at how the results of each tool compare to the others and how well the hairstyles hold up on a normal day.
Ease of handling
When we test these hair tools, we pay attention to how easy they're to use.
We ask ourselves: Can someone for whom this tool is new use it without problems? 🤔
This helps us understand whether the product is beginner-friendly or not.
For us, a hair tool must not only be good but also easy and simple for everyone to use.
Technology and hair damage
In our tests, we closely examine what technology each hair styling device uses. 🧐
We want to ensure the tool is safe and won't harm the hair.
We look out for whether the tool uses too much heat because that can damage hair.
We pay special attention to how each tool affects the hair's health.
Final verdict and purchase recommendation
When we finish checking all the features, we pull together what we've found.
Then we give a final verdict and share our thoughts on whether or not you should buy the product. 💬
It's very important to us to be open and honest.
We want to give you all the information you need to decide whether to buy the product.
How we test our air purifiers?
We have rigorously tested numerous air purifiers and smart air conditioners and pushed them to their limits.
Therefore, we have gained a great deal of experience and can make an informed analysis. 🤓
Our standardised tests in a true-to-life environment enable us to evaluate each device accordingly and make a recommendation for every other household.
The first step in our testing process is to conduct extensive research, both nationally and internationally.
This gives us an overview of the latest developments and features that these devices can offer.
The next step is the standardised practical test. 🧾
Here we pay particular attention to everyday use, which includes:
- Air purification for fine dust: How effectively can the device capture the added dust?
- Odour elimination: Is it able to diffuse all the unpleasant odours in the house efficiently?
- Loudness: Is the unit annoyingly loud or barely perceptible in daily use? How does it behave at night or during a cosy movie night?
- Power consumption: We measure the power consumption and calculate whether and how this will be reflected in your bill.
- Smart features: Are there any smart features and do they make it easier to use the air purifier?
- Design, dimensions and mobility: What is the workmanship like and how user-friendly is the device?
- Price-performance ratio: Are the purchase and follow-up costs justified?
We check whether there are comparable products in this category and pit the models against each other in a direct comparison.
Then our articles are read by our smart home experts and checked for accuracy of information.
These test criteria help us to draw an effective conclusion and provide sound buying advice to help you find the best device for your needs.
