When it comes to styling your hair, there are a ton of cool tools and accessories you can use. One of the more popular, high-ticket products out there is the user-beloved Dyson Airwrap multi-styler. Online, reviewers deploy numerous exclamation points while praising the tool’s ability to bestow salon-quality blowouts, curls, shine and volume. (It’s also almost always sold out, despite its nearly $600 price tag.)

However, if you’re not looking to shell out an enormous wad of cash, there are numerous alternatives you can get your hands on to get similar results for a fraction of the price. Since the Dyson Airwrap functions as a blow dryer, curling wand and brush, we searched the internet for tools that offer comparable features and are supported by glowing reviews.

Revlon One-Step volumizer hair dryer and brush
With this handy brush, you can declutter your bathroom counter once and for all. It has multiple functions that eliminate the need for a slew of tools to do your hair every day. Not only does it dry your hair, but it also styles and adds volume as you use it. The nondetachable oval brush is ideal for smoothing hair, preventing frizz and picking up follicles at the root, and it has round edges to create a voluminous, curled-ends look. Multiple heat settings allow for drying and styling versatility.

Promising review: "I have a girlfriend who has a $500 Dyson blow dryer that I tried and loved but I wasn’t willing to spend that kind of money on a hair dryer. So I started searching Amazon and came across this model that had great reviews so I figured I mine as well give it a try! I have to say I’m thoroughly impressed! I’m great with my hair but round brushing is a labor or love. This tool cuts the time in half and my hair comes out smooth and looking like I just came from the salon. I just cut bangs and love to use it on my bangs because it gives me a very natural straight look. Easily my new favorite hair tool!" — Rene Sweeney

Promising review: "I love this product, and I've never been a fan of hair dryers. This one has 3 heat settings, 3 speeds, cool shot (that's ACTUALLY cool). Hands down the best hair dryer I've ever used. The curling function is also 10/10. Definitely takes some getting used to and figuring out how to best maneuver it for yourself, but so worth it when you do!" — Bailey B.
Shark HyperAir
Although Shark is known for its reviewer-beloved vacuums, the brand also has a foothold in the beauty space thanks to some popular hair dryer brushes.

In addition to the brush and concentrator it comes with, you can also add on a diffuser for an additional cost.

Promising review: "I love this dryer! I had a Chi dryer for 15 years prior to purchasing this shark and the shark is more powerful, more quiet and I love the attachments. I wanted a nicer dryer but was unwilling to pay for a Dyson. I feel like this Shark does everything I want it to at a reasonable price. The attachments are great took especially the brush." — A. Tomlinson

Promising review
: "This styler was super easy to use. I used it on dry hair using the paddle brush attachment, and it made my hair smooth, shiny, and volumized after running it through once. The hot air is gentle enough to bring directly to my scalp, which helps with creating lift. My hair looks great and I can't wait to try the different attachments!" — IzzyH

Promising review: "LITERALLY has done for me what no other heat styling tools could do. The long handle helps get the sections in the back, and being able to touch the brush while it's on without burning my hand take so much user error out. I use the paddle brush for the sides and then the round brush for my curtain bangs. My hair is still in great form after days of use. Also my hair is long and I'm short so my arms are short, but it's ACTUALLY doable because of the long handle. Really loved it 10/10." — Nennanegra
