Shark’s Dyson airwrap-inspired is discounted at Amazon

Shark’s four-in-one flexstyle offers similar versatility to Dyson’s cult airwrap at a lower price. Now, it’s even more affordable thanks to Amazon’s Black Friday price cut.

Shark flexstyle 4-in-1 air styler and hair dryer: Was £269.99, now £194.39,


Reduced by 30 per cent, the flexstyle is complete with four attachments and this version of the viral styler is designed for those with curly and coily hair. Our tester can vouch for its lightweight and powerful design, noting the tool really comes “into its own with its hair dryer function”. “By rotating the nozzle, you can snap Shark’s tool into a more traditional-looking hair dryer, complete with a curl-defining diffuser and styling concentrator,” they said.

The inclusion of coanda airflow technology limits heat damage, while auto-wrap curlers and an oval brush help streamline your hair routine for a salon-quality look.

This Amazon TV deal is one of the best we’ve seen

Amazon Fire TV 55in 4-series 4K UHD smart TV: Was £549.99, now £149.99,


Looking for an incredible deal on a 4K TV? Look no further. Not to be confused with the Amazon Fire TV streaming stick (the dongle that plugs into your telly’s HDMI port to give you access to streaming apps), the Amazon Fire TV is a complete television set designed and built by the tech and retail giant. Naturally, it runs on the same slick interface you’ll find on the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

The catch? It’s limited to Amazon Prime members with invitations. First thing’s first, you need to be a Prime member. If you’re signed up, you can request an invite to shop the deal – you’ll then receive an email from Amazon confirming your acceptance if you’re one of the lucky few. Good luck.
