Shark STYLE iQ Ionic Hair Dryer & Styler 4

Shark are well known for their ability to create powerful suction so it only makes sense they should be able to flip that energy to go in the opposite direction from suction to blowing.

The Shark STYLE iQ Ionic Hair Dryer & Styler is their first hair dryer, it has a rather hefty price tag so is it worth the investment? It comes with the Hairdryer, a concentrator, diffuser and small filter cleaning brush, it has a black and rose gold design, measures up at 7.5 x 12 x 25cm and features a 2.5meter cable. It is heavier than the average hair dryer at just under 500g, this might get a little tiring on very thick hair, but it shouldn’t have too much of an impact as the ergonomic handle makes it comfortable to hold. The iQ Technology uses rapid air power with next-generation intelligence, that generates high-velocity heated ionised air for fast drying with no heat damage. You can dry and style at the same time, the STYLE iQ will intuitively select the optimum heat and airflow when the accessory is attached to the hairdryer.

The recommended heat and airflow settings removes the guess work to dry and style your hair there are three temperatures to choose from and three airflow options too. The settings can be manually adjusted if needed to experiment with different results, there’s a cool air button that can be held for a hit of cold air. The included 2-in-1 concentrator delivers controlled, smooth drying, the wider opening can be used for fast, gentle drying whilst the extended nozzle provides a narrow airpath that smooths and shapes hair. The adjustable diffuser circulates airflow from root to tip to enhance naturally curly hair, the extendable prongs can reach and lift roots while the deep bowl offers maximum coverage and even drying. The hair dryer does leave the hair looking glossy and feeling smooth with no little fly away hairs, you can get a good amount of volume in the hair too whilst styling. The Shark STYLE isn’t a hair dryer for some who simply wants to dry their hair after a shower, it is better suited for those who like to regularly mix up their style and more importantly know how to use all the attachments and setting effectively.
