There’s one brand that’s been dubbed as the best in the business for hair tools, and it requires no introduction. Dyson has it all: a damage-preventing straightener, wave-perfecting curler and shine-inducing blow dryer. Though the Dyson Airwrap constantly steals the spotlight, you shouldn’t overlook the brand’s hair dryer. It dries your strands in record time, but with a price tag of $430 (*internally screams*). Thank the hair heavens above because there are tons of alternatives that won’t cost you four Benjies.
What is the Dyson Supersonic?
First, we have to get to the bottom of why people worship the Dyson Supersonic in the same way that we worship Harry Styles. The hair tool increases smoothness and shine, while reducing frizz and flyaways. It achieves all of this in record time and without damaging your hair. The blow dryer has greater airflow (compared to other popular models), which results in a high-velocity stream of air that dries hair quickly. It also monitors air temperature more than 40 times so that you’re not left with heat-damaged hair. The technology behind this blow dryer is remarkable—and so is its price tag, which is why we’re sharing this list of cheaper alternatives.
Where can you buy a Dyson Supersonic dupe?
Go with what you already know: your fave retailers—seriously! You can find so many budget-friendly options at Sephora, Ulta and Target. There isn’t some underground market for Dyson dupes. You’ve probably already been scrolling past them while browsing your go-to online stores.
Which brands make Dyson Supersonic dupes?
Your tried-and-true brands, like Revlon, T3 and GHD, sell equally stellar hair dryers. They won’t cost you $430 either, with all of the below options costing you no more than $279 (!!). In fact, one Dyson dupe loved by shoppers costs just $20 (a.k.a. $410 cheaper!!!).
Ahead, five Dyson Supersonic hair dryer dupes that reviewers say are just as good, if not better, than the O.G.

The T3 AireLuxe features a wide airstream that’s backed by negative ions for a quick dry. The result? Soft and shiny strands, minus any frizz thanks to the ion generator. Pick your player among the five heat settings and three speed settings. Either way, your hair’s about to look professionally done and in a fraction of the time it usually takes.
The Revlon One-Step Volumizer is everywhere right now. The tool allows you to dry and style your locks all at once. The ionic and ceramic technology smooths and volumizes hair, while the tufted bristles control and detangle.
You’d be surprised to find that this Remington blow dryer costs just $20 but provides results you’d think came from a Dyson. This model utilizes advanced coating technology to protect your hair from heat damage. It has fast-drying power and reduces frizz, too.
Drybar’s Buttercup Blow Dryer also uses ionic technology to smooth hair and fight frizz. You get a beautiful blowout in a super short amount of time. You also get two concentrator nozzles to style and dry your hair to perfection.
“I was between this and the Dyson and I have no regrets,” wrote one five-star shopper. “This dries your hair in a fraction of the time, leaves it smooth and doesn’t make you question the price tag as much since it’s less than half the price of the Dyson dryer. I got one for my sister as well because it was too good not to share.”
This GHD hair dryer is the priciest model on this list, but it’s still half the price of a Dyson Supersonic. This one’s standout features include its “Aeroprecis” technology and contoured nozzle. Together, they keep airflow and temperature ultra-concentrated. It’s also slightly lighter than the Dyson, so holding it for a while won’t be an issue. Cop yours for 23 percent off while you still can.
