‘There may be a bitter chill in the air, but your hair has never looked hotter.’
That’s what you’ll be telling yourself in the mirror when you start styling your strands with the latest tech, ripe for the picking this Black Friday from Currys.
Yes, Black Friday – that auspicious time of year when we think not just of gathering gifts for others, but of also treating ourselves (finally!) to that purchase we’ve been fawning over for several months beforehand.
Currys has a whole toolkit waiting to be snapped up of top-shelf tech, from the famous Dyson Airwrap (you know you want to) to Shark’s cult-favourite stylers, as well as hairdryers, diffusers, and fancy-looking units that will add oomph to your festive ‘do.
But what are the viral beauty tools you absolutely need to add to your list of non-negotiables this Black Friday?

You must have been sitting on your phone with your eyes closed the past year if you’ve managed to miss the mania around Shark’s accessible stylers, with the Speedstyle hair dryer becoming a real power player in the hair game.
Fabulous hair is a mere swish away with three styling modes, as the tool uses ultra high-speed drying to take tresses – whether straight or curly – from wet to dry in mere minutes.
A funky addition by the name of the RapidGloss Finisher is also on hand to tame unruly frizz and flyaways and reveal gorgeously glossy hair.
Better yet, the Speedstyle constantly measures and regulates the temperature so you won’t risk frying your ends and undoing all those bonding masks you’ve been slathering on your mane this year in the quest for Rich Girl Hair.
DYSON Airwrap Special Edition – Blue Blush – £479.99

We’re poised and ready to pounce on a Dyson Airwrap this Black Friday – whether it’s for us or for someone else, we just know we need to get our hands on one.
It’s a firm favourite for a reason.
It kind of does everything except your washing up, really – you can wave, curl, smooth, and dry, emerging day in, day out with hair that has people asking for your hairdresser’s number.
Plus, its smart technology has us out the door faster by styling and drying at the same time (we really don’t have time to be playing about in the morning, you know) thanks to the Coanda effect, with hair kept healthy thanks to its constant heat monitoring.
Revamp New Love Beach Waver Gift Set – Deep Merlot – NOW £39.99 WAS £69.99

Can we please talk about the chokehold wavers had on our hair this year? Every influencer and their perfectly groomed dog were creating gorgeous mermaid waves with these tools, and just because it’s nearly winter doesn’t mean we can’t be rocking beachy looks well into the New Year with Revamp’s styler.
It heats up in seconds so you’re out the door in record time and with healthier hair, too, as the Waver sports ceramic and ionic barrels infused with keratin, argan and coconut oils which keeps hair protected and frizz-free.
Revlon One Step Volumizer – NOW £34.99 WAS £62.99

Yes, this is *the* viral hot brush everyone is *still* talking about.
For those who are just after a bouncy blowout that rivals your local blowdry bar (and for pocket change in comparison), the Revlon Volumiser has earned itself quite the reputation.
It gives the pricier stylers a run for their money, too, with ceramic coating and ionic technology meaning your hair is left with a healthy shine people will notice from across the road.
It honestly does one thing so well, it doesn’t need to bog itself down with fancy attachments that’ll sooner gather dust under the bed – you know what you want in a hair styler and it’s this.
Bellissima Italia Difflon Diffuser – NOW £46.99 WAS £56.99

For those with curls, you need to stop scrolling – this is what you need to wrap your hair around this Black Friday.
This is basically the queen of diffusers, with ceramic technology protecting your hair from damaging hot spots by spreading heat evenly through the air stream, which equals gorgeous waves and curls. Plus, its compact, hand-held design has captivated, with users able to have better control with a closer-to-the-hair grip.
Better yet, the curl booster keeps ringlets tight, bouncy and well-defined, so you can make use of your hair’s full natural potential, while you can avoid frizzing with the gentle air flow of the dry care system.
From Dyson to Shark and Revlon, these are the cult-favourite stylers you need on your list.
