While it can set you back at least $500, reviews of the iconic Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer are never short of praise thanks to its time-saving and hairstyling features and innovative technology. And while there’s no denying that this impressive hairdryer is one of the rare and few beauty tools that are actually worth the splurge, what if we told you that you could get the similar results with an alternative equipped with many of the Supersonic’s beloved features and for just $50?
SHOP IT: Amazon, $50 (originally $53)
Just like the Supersonic, this dupe is specially designed for quick and convenient hair-drying. Powered with a 1800W AC motor, this hairdryer is said to dry hair 50% faster compared to other conventional models and works especially well for thick and long hair — even curls and coils. Also not short of hair-loving qualities, this hair dryer delivers uniform heating so you never have to worry about extreme heat damage or frizz. The air collection technology combined with its wide air duct structure is designed to release a high-speed airflow that keeps the concentration on moisturizing ions resulting in salon-level results. We’re talking shiny looking and feeling nourished hair.
Best of all, its super lightweight and easy to manoeuvre (which comes in handy for when you’re looking to blow your hair out).
Each LPINYE 1800W Professional Hair Dryer purchase also comes with three styling attachments. The smoothing nozzle is used to dry the hair for a sleek and soft touch. The styling nozzle is used to precisely control the wind direction for easy styling — the airflow gathering technology promotes the wind speed. While the diffuser is used to amp up the look and touch of textured hair and curls.
“This dryer looks like a Dyson but is clearly less expensive than a Dyson. I have curly/wavy hair and have only used it on diffuse. it takes about fifteen minutes less than my old dryer did to dry my hair, which is still about half an hour,” reads one five-star review. “What I like most about it is that it is so lightweight and easy to use. It's a good dryer and I am happy to have bought it.”
“I was looking for a hairdryer that won't damage my hair and shine, and saw this one and decided to get it! I love it! The design is beautiful! The colours match and it is a perfect size. This is a product I will use every day or every other day. Will save you time and keep your hair in nice condition or improve the texture! And the handgrip has a soft slip-resistant feel that makes the dryer easy to hold onto. It has three modes: fan mode, slow air mode, and regular mode...” added another. “Also has a switch on the back that will switch from hot air to cold. This is an absolutely quality product.”
If you’re looking to invest in a Dyson but aren’t sure, why not test the waters with this model? After all, for only $50 there’s not much to lose.
