This Is The Dyson Hairdryer Dupe The Love Island Villa Uses Non-Stop

For a fraction of the price, these dupes are hard to say no to.

Love Island Dyson Dupe - Grazia

Eagle-eyed viewers of Love Island might have noticed the best hairdryer dupe being used particularly enthusiastically in the villa dressing room on the winter show this year. Yes, of course, it's the Shark tools that are (very) similar to the leading Dyson range.

We're a huge fan of Dyson hair stylers and the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is a favourite among the Grazia beauty team. It dries hair in double quick time and weighs a fraction of your average hair dryer. Famed for mimicking Dyson's range of stylers in both their mechanisms and design are Shark hair tools - a brand that has made their way into this year's Love Island villa by way of Boots - the show's beauty partner.

Cut to any shot of a Love Islander drying their hair this year and you might spot them holding the Shark Style iQ hair dryer or Shark FlexStyle multi-use dryer. Now, we've seen it splashed all across socials including the infamous viral TikToks (just like the time when everyone was raving about the Revlon One Step hairdryer), so it seems that this is the newest hair tool to have your hands on.

What makes the Shark range so special? We asked that too. Well, apart from giving the same results as the Dyson counterparts for a fraction of the price, the tools are actually pretty effective in their own right. With hundreds of reviews across social media raving about how good they are, it's pretty hard to ignore the fan following.

So, with Love Islanders being spotted using them day and night in the villa as well as a tonne of influencers sharing their love for the dupe, here's where to get your hands on the Shark hairdryers. They make a great case for a Dyson hairdryer dupe.
