16 affordable Dyson Airwrap alternatives to shop during Prime Day
ICYMI, the Dyson Airwrap has been the most coveted hair styling tool since it first dropped in 2018. I mean, a hair styler that can curl, blow-dry, straighten and give you bouncy '90s supermodel waves without intense heat damage or breakage? Obviously, everyone wants one.
Not only is the Dyson Airwrap almost always sold out (you can take a peep here to see if your favorite retailer has it in stock like Sephora or Ulta), but it's also going to cost you a pretty penny — $599.99, to be exact. Yes, the price point is steep, but think about the years of research and the high-tech engineering that went into the product.
The Airwrap utilizes various temperature settings and the aerodynamic phenomenon called the Coandă effect, meaning the tool can curve the airflow and attract hair to its various attachments, allowing users with all hair types to dry and style their hair effectively and without excessive heat damage.
While you can shop the new iteration Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler or expertly-refurbished models at both Dyson.com and the Dyson Outlet, the hair tool is still a major financial investment. If you're not ready or can't afford to make that investment yet, Amazon sells a handful of hair tools that shoppers swear by and are seriously worth the hype, but with a smaller price tag.
From blow dryer brushes to TikTok-approved curling barrels, scroll down to shop 12 Dyson Airwrap alternatives to get that bouncy, frizz-free at-home blowout for all hair types. It’s time to banish those flyaways, besties.

Amazon Shopper Review: "Listen, I love this thing. It’s replaced all of my hot tools. Flat iron, curling iron, blow dryer. My hair looks and feels healthy, even though I use heat more than I have in a decade with this tool. I use the diffuser after every wash for quick drying, and the barrel to get the trendy blowout when I need a break from my natural hair. I love that it’s compact and the bag doubles as my product bag when I’m traveling. It’s a win for me."
Amazon Shopper Review: "Don’t tell Dyson but the Shark is so much better! Way more user-friendly, lightweight and also transforms into a blow dryer which I didn’t know until it arrived and I was watching a YouTube tutorial on it. BUY IT!"
Amazon Shopper Review: "This thing is fantastic. There is now a medium heat setting which is great. And the fact that you can remove the brush head is great for me since there's a lot of product buildup from my heat protector and leave-in conditioner, making it so easy to clean."
Amazon Shopper Review: "I have natural curls that don’t like to be blown dry, but this tool actually enhanced my natural curls and created non-frizzy perfect, healthy-looking ringlets. It's lightweight and easy to use. I have already passed this link on to all of my friends"
Amazon Shopper Review: "With this brush, styling my hair became very easy, and it now takes me twice less time to do it than before! Tip: before you use the Revlon brush, make sure your hair is not wet, but slightly damp/close to being dry."
Amazon Shopper Review: "The dryer is so lightweight and that means a lot for someone with arthritis in their hands. The controls are easy to twist and to determine which twisty does what. There is a cleanable filter at the bottom as well. Lastly, there is a cold shot button to hold down that turns the air cooler and keeps your style in place."
Amazon Shopper Review: "I have wavy and thick hair that can be very difficult to round brush straight. I bought this brush without any hope that it would work and was I pleasantly surprised. This brush actually got my wavy hair straight in about 20ish minutes. My hair feels very smooth and soft and there is very little frizz if any. Definitely recommend this product."
Amazon Shopper Review: "This T3 Edge Heated Smoothing & Styling Brush heats up very quickly and also heats evenly. It's great as a finishing touch on a home blowout and makes hair look and feel less frizzy and more polished-looking, without taking away all the volume achieved from a blowout."
Amazon Shopper Review: "It takes a little getting used to but it is easy enough to use. It is not heavy and your arm does not get tired. The best part for me is that the curls last and I am on day two. So all in all, I am very happy with my purchase. If you are on the fence, I urge you to buy it because you won't be sorry."
Amazon Shopper Review: "The lowest heat setting on the Drybar brush is warm enough to dry my thin/fine hair, but not so hot that I can't even touch the barrel. My hair was significantly less frizzy after using this."
Amazon Shopper Review: "I have thick and curly hair. Using this was nice and I was able to finish my hair in about 38 minutes versus an hour with a regular blow dryer. Bonus for me versus other competitors like Revlon, the bristles are synthetic and cruelty-free for those that care. Also not super loud like Revlon and even though it looks big it's lightweight and easy to use. Yeah just buy it now you won't regret it!"
Amazon Shopper Review: "The T3 does all of this and doesn't dry out my hair like the other products do. The cool setting allows me to lock in my style easily if I want to flip the ends under. You do need to dry your hair (air or blow dryer) about 80% before using this, as per the instructions, but the actual styling is faster for me than with the other products I've owned."
Amazon Shopper Review: "This brush is easy to use and heats up quickly. I used it to dry and straighten my daughter's 4C hair and it turned out great. The only issue I experienced was the temperature control buttons are on the handle so I was unknowingly adjusting the temperature while drying hair. Other than that this drying brush is lightweight and does a good job."
Amazon Shopper Review: "The multiple settings give you exactly what you need, and it even comes with a couple of sectioning clips (use them, they are SO helpful) and a heat glove (which I only use when changing the tools). Great value, great hot tool!"
Amazon Shopper Review: "My kinky hair is almost completely straight; much better than the results I got with my old straightening comb because I can get the brush on my roots! No burned scalp, fingers or ears! There are less expensive brushes out there but I believe you get what you pay for."
