I'm a beauty whizz and I tested out Revolution's dupe for the Dyson Airwrap – it's £400 cheaper, here's what I thought | The Sun

UNLESS you’ve been living under a rock, you will know that everyone seems to be going crazy for the Dyson Airwrap recently.

But with a cost-of-living crisis in tow and its hefty £499.99 price tag, it seems that the hair tool is something that many of us couldn’t imagine being able to afford. 

But fear not, there’s a new hair tool that’s a whopping £400 cheaper and does just as good a job.

So if you want your hair to look just as good as if you’ve used the Dyson Airwrap, but without having to splash too much cash, here is one for you.

Beauty fan Olivia Blackwell, known on TikTok as ‘lvblackwell’, is a huge fan of the Dyson Airwrap, but is always looking for other beauty products to test out.

Olivia has 69.2k followers and 1.7million likes on the video sharing platform and recently gave her honest opinion of the new hair styling tool, the Revolution Hair, Hair Wrap.

In a video posted just one day ago on TikTok, Olivia said: “We all know I’m a Dyson Airwrap girlie through and through, but look at what's just arrived on my doorstep this morning – the Revolution Hair, Hair Wrap.

“So, let me know if you want me to do a comparison”.

After many beauty fans were eager for a comparison video, Olivia quickly followed-up with a tutorial, trialling out both products on either side of her hair. 

She uploaded her video with the caption ‘Ok I’m impressed… which side is your fave?’.

The beauty whizz said: “Dyson Airwrap versus the new Revolution Hair Hair Wrap, let’s compare.

“I’m going to do this half of my hair [left] with the Airwrap [Dyson] and this half [right] with the Hair Wrap [Revolution].

“If you’ve watched any of my tutorials, you’ll know that I dry my hair fully before doing any curling with the Air Wrap”.

In the video, we see Olivia put both hair tools to the test on her lovely blonde locks. 

She explained: “One thing I would say about the Revolution one, there’s no way to take it off [the hair nozzle] without pulling it and obviously the attachment gets very hot, so there’s a bit of a design fault there.

“This side [Revolution] feels crispy, you can even see it.

“Just as a heads up, I’m going to curl my hair like this and it will make sense when I show you the Hair Wrap attachment.

“[The Revolution product] doesn’t ‘suck’ the hair in as well as the Dyson, it also only has one attachment that goes in one different direction so you have to angle it to get the direction you want.

“I’ve added some hairspray and a little bit of oil – you can kind of see the difference already, the Dyson does give you a lot more volume and bounce and shine, but for just under £100, I don’t think this is a bad alternative at all.

“There are a few design problems but I think that’s kind of what you get when you’re paying £400 less.

“But not bad at all – okay Revolution!”.

TikTok users loved the new Revolution tool and were eager to reflect this in the comments. 

One person said: “Dyson looks like a blow dry – Revolution looks like tong curls! Still gorgeous though!” 

Another added: “It's still nice, like definitely would go out with that. Maybe more texturising spray, but it's still lovely” to which Olivia replied “Definitely a great alternative at a much more affordable price point”.
