Everyone wants it: The Dyson “Airwrap” is currently probably the most hyped styling tool for hair. It is considered the all-rounder, and is supposed to effortlessly and gently conjure up curls and volume in the mane. But the whole thing has its price: you have to shell out between 450 and 750 euros for the “Airwrap”. Can’t it be done more cheaply? We show what alternatives there are.
What can the Dyson "Airwrap" do?
If there’s one styling tool that’s causing a stir on social media, it’s the Dyson "Airwrap". It uses a particularly gentle airflow tactic to style hair perfectly and voluminously. Instead of rotating the mane around a hot roller, as is the case with conventional curling irons, a strong air current automatically pulls the hair strands around the attachment. This phenomenon, the Coanda effect, shapes the hair by means of air at will. In addition, the device has several attachments and brushes, making it easy to curl, straighten or dry hair. With several hundred euros acquisition costs, however, the whole thing also has a pretty handsome price. We present 4 cheaper alternatives to the airwrap.
Günstiger alternatives to the "Airwrap"
The warm air brush from Electribrite
Preisgünstig und trendy: The warm air brush from Electribrite überzeugt mit lila- farbenen Design und einem unschlagbaren Preis von ca. 38 Euro. Das Produkt ist Haartrockner, Lockenstab, Glätteisen und Massagekamm zugleich. Auch bei diesem Gerät steht gesundes Haar an erster Stelle: Die Ionen-Technologie beseitigt Haar- Kräuselungen und beugt Frizz vor. Nutzer verraten, dass die Warmluftbürste vor allem für eine dickere Haarstruktur geeignet ist, da das Styling länger hält.
The "MoistureProtect" curling iron from Philips
The curling iron with ionization function from Philips creates stylish looks without much effort at the touch of a button. Similar to the Dyson, hair protection is paramount here: with "Moisture and Protect"technology, the temperature is constantly controlled and adjusted to enhance the shine and moisture of the hair. The "MoistureProtect"curler comes with a wide variety of timer, temperature and curl direction settings and 27 styling options. At 138 euros, it is no bargain either, but still a much cheaper alternative to the Dyson "Airwrap". However, the curling iron – unlike the "Airwrap" – can not replace the Föhn…
The Curl&Straight hot air brush from Remington
The ion generator of the Remington hot air curling iron allows you to style both glamorous curls and straight hair. Similar to a hairdryer, the airflow passes through an internal heating element, is deflated by the uprights, and thus makes styling possible. Users report that care should be taken when setting the temperature, as the device heats up quickly. It is also important to regularly remove dust from the rear air filter and generally clean the product to maintain quality. The warm air brush can be purchased together with a practical storage case for about 60 euros – much cheaper than the "Airwrap".
The hot air brush from BaByliss
The complete all-round package offers the warm air brush from BaByliss: The device can dry hair, gives volume, smoothes and styles. Hair damage is minimized here by the sophisticated ionic technology and ceramic coating, which causes minimal friction to the hair. Also beneficial are the cooling air function, which ensures a long-lasting look, as well as the different temperature levels and speeds to provide the optimal styling experience for every hair type. The Bürste is available online for just under 70 euros.
