It’s pretty well-known that Dyson products are some of the most popular holiday gifts for women, but they are far from cheap. Even if you manage to find some Dyson Black Friday hair deals, they can still have big price tags, especially the new Dyson holiday collection tools.
That said, there are now some amazing Dyson alternatives, some of which get the job done just as well as Dyson. Many of these dupes are also marked down for Black Friday beauty sales, which is especially great this year when truly good sales are hard to find due to shipping delays and stores trying to make sales goals after a year of lockdown due to COVID-19. Below, we’ve rounded up the best Black Friday deals on Dyson alternatives, along with some information about what to look for in each hair tool.
Top Dyson Alternative Hair Dryers
The best thing about the Dyson blow dryer is its power. It has three heat adjustments and three power adjustments, which may sound standard, but the power is truly unmatched. The other great thing about these blow dryers is that they come with a bunch of attachments. Below, we have rounded up some of the best hair dryers that are just as powerful and attachment-clad as the Dyson models. Some of them are even much prettier!
T3 Fit Compact Hair Dryer
This small, lightweight hair dryer still packs a powerful punch. It has three heat and two speed settings, as well as an ion generator, which will make your hair look much more shiny.
Drybar Buttercup Blow-Dryer
The Drybar Hair Buttercup line is iconic in the hair world, and its site is offering 20 percent off its main dryer today. It’s super powerful and has an 1,875-watt motor. It also has three heat and two power settings. While it’s a little heavy, it dries hair 20 percent faster than other options, so you won’t mind.
Best Dyson Airwrap Alternatives
If you’re interested in the Dyson Airwrap, you already know how expensive it can be. The thing is, you’ll probably only end up using a couple of the attachments regularly, which doesn’t really justify that purchase. Below, we’ve rounded up some hair dryer brushes that are marked down for Black Friday.
Hot Tools Professional Black Gold Detachable 2.8″ One Step Volumizer
With a 2.8-inch barrel, this tool will give you voluminous curls while drying it at the same time. It’s also great for brushing through dry hair to add back volume and shine. Since the barrel is shaped almost like an oval, it also works to lift really well at the root.
T3 AireBrush Duo Blow Dry Brush
Similar to the Dyson, T3 makes one of the best hair dryer brushes that comes with multiple brush heads so that you can tailor the look to your liking. This one has a 2.5-inch round brush as well as a 3-inch paddle brush, which is great if you want straight-but-glossy hair.
Best Dyson Corrale Alternatives
The Dyson Corrale is just the brand’s take on a straightener. Aside from the fact that it’s cordless, it really doesn’t offer many more features than a regular old straightener. While it shows that you can use it to curl your hair as well, this is definitely an acquired skill, and I’ve honestly found that smaller irons from different brands do a better job with this style. Below are some of the best hair straighteners that are on sale right now.
T3 makes amazing flat irons, and its site is offering 25 percent off for Black Friday until Sunday, Nov. 28. This straightener features nine heat settings and ceramic plates to reduce damage.
CHI G2 Ceramic & Titanium Infused Hairstyling Iron
The first really good straightener that you ever bought was probably a CHI, and honestly, it still doesn’t get much better. With a simple hand twist, this titanium-infused straightener can be used to create gorgeous curls or beachy waves. Also, it’s a fraction of the price of the Dyson Corrale.
