The Dyson Airwrap is a truly unbeatable piece of hair technology that has been engineered to curl, wave, smooth, and dry hair with ease. Although there’s no doubt the Airwrap changed the hairstyling industry forever and remains the UK’s most-coveted hair tool, at £449.99 it’s not a tool everyone can afford. So instead of investing in the real thing, people keep their eyes peeled for more budget-friendly options that can help them achieve a similar style.
One of the most popular of these alternatives is the Babyliss Diamond Big Hair Dual Replacement Brush Head.
Clocking over 1000 glowing 5-star reviews, this hairdryer/styler hybrid emulates the Airwrap by using hot air to create big, voluminous blowouts in record time. Coming with two different sized barrels, you can use the 50mm one for adding volume and shape, and the 42mm one for styling layers and fringes.

Reviewers love the way the brush uses a diamond-infused ceramic barrel with frizz-control ionics to help them blow dry their hair into silky smooth styles.
One said: “This is, to put it simply, the best invention since sliced bread! Worked wonders to add volume and definition for my hair, which is normally very dry and frizzy, and which I can never blow dry properly with a brush and normal hairdryer”.
For those who are really starting to miss that post-hairdresser feeling, reviewers are saying this tool is the next best thing – and you can get the look in record time.
Another added: “This product is my magic trick to look like I came out of the salon within 5 minutes of using it at home”.
If this has your fingers itching to click ‘add to cart’, we’ve got good news for you. The best selling hair tool has been included in Amazon’s massive Spring Sale, with the price being dropped from £60 to £39.99 – that’s 33 percent off.

Many reviewers were astonished by the silky smooth yet still voluminous finish the hairdryer left them with and were amazed by how easy this look was to achieve as well as how long the styles stayed in place.
One wrote: “I have every hair appliance under the sun but since getting this they are all redundant. This is definitely my most favourite purchase ever.
“I’ve never been great at blow-drying my hair until I got this. I walk about all day like a woman out of an advert swishing my hair this way and that way.
“And the bounce is still there the next day. Brilliant product”.
The top-rated tool has even been given the tick of approval from professionals.
One said: “This is an absolutely fantastic bit of kit. I am a professional hairdresser that doesn’t usually purchase such gimmicky products but I have a repetitive strain injury from my work and found it difficult to lift my arm high so this dryer was perfect for my needs.
“I was pleasantly surprised how much body it gave my normally fine hair and what a lovely shine it left it with. Would highly recommend this gadget”.
