I am not a stylist. I’m not even the most feminine woman on the planet. But I am someone with long hair, and I struggle with styling it daily. The Shark HyperAIR was brought to my attention, and my first thought was, “How different can a hairdryer be?” But Shark proved me wrong, because not only will I not be going back to my previous device, but I’d even fork out the $229.99 for the Shark HyperAIR myself.

So, what makes this hairdryer so special? To start, it uses something Shark has branded “HyperAIR IQ Technology”. This means using high-velocity heated air along with ionized air to dry your hair while protecting it from heat. Yes, it still uses hot hair, but each time I used the Shark HyperAIR my hair felt lighter and softer than it did with my previous dryer. Shark also attributes this to its negative ion generator, designed to help smooth your hair, decreasing frizz and flyaways.

Even on its highest setting, the device was never as hot as a normal dryer, but still styled my hair more precisely and dried it even faster. I loved this for my kids too. Usually, they complain about how hot it is to dry their hair, so we forgo it altogether.

The Shark HyperAIR is not a quiet device, obviously, since it’s a hair dryer. It is powerful and with that comes noise. However, when you adjust the heat settings from high, to medium, to low, there is a noticeable difference in volume, and once you shut it off, it goes silent immediately. Usually there is a wind down period with a device, but the Shark HyperAIR shuts off so suddenly that I needed to take note.

“Each time I used the Shark HyperAIR my hair felt lighter and softer than it did with my previous dryer.”

Along with the dryer itself, there is a two-in-one concentrator that attaches to the end with two different modes. One is for pre-styling, when you just want to get a quick dry, and the other is for precision styling, to smooth and shape your hair. The Shark HyperAIR actually adjusts its settings depending on which attachment (the IQ Curl-Defining Diffuser, $39.99 and IQ AirWave, $59.99 are sold separately), or which concentrator you’ve set the device to use. It will change it to the perfect heat or power setting automatically depending on what you’re trying to do. Who knew high and hot wasn’t always the right answer?

In the box, you’ll also find a little note with a website taking you to a styling guide to assist with your new hair journey. I thought this was a nice touch, especially since you’re paying a pretty penny for the device. At that cost, you must care about your hair, and a bit of guidance is always welcome.
