I would love a Dyson hairdryer - wouldn't we all?! - but it's a little out of my price range. I had read that the Shark iQ Ionic Hair Dryer was a really good alternative to the Supersonic and it's even ended up on some best hair dryer lists. So I've been saving up to get my hands on one. Then today I spotted a Shark hair dryer in the Amazon Prime Day sale and I've just added it to my basket. 

One Dyson-devoted Beauty Editor put all the Shark hairdryers to the test and the Shark Style iQ Ionic Hair Dryer & Styler did not disappoint. The hairdryer boasts smart technology and rapid airflow for super quick drying times. It comes with three attachments - a diffuser, concentrator and a style brush - to be used for a range of styles. While we scoured the internet for the best Amazon Prime Deal Day beauty deals we spotted the Shark hair dryer with 25% off and can't quite believe the price.

As well as boasting a super speedy drying time, the iQ technology also helps to reduce any damage that heat styling can cause. With three temperature settings and three airflow settings with a cool shot button to lock in your style. Trust us when we say that this is a really good purse-friendly alternative to the Supersonic, especially when there is an extra discount. 

With an extra 25% off the hair dryer on Amazon's Prime Deal Days, we'll be racing you to the checkout. 

But be quick, because this offer and all the best Amazon Prime Day fashion deals, are only around until midnight.
