The Airstyler 5 in 1 is a styling tool that allows you to go in all directions with your hair. In this blog, we take you through the comparison between the Airstyler 5 in 1 from MAE as an airwrap dupe of the Dyson Airwrap.

About the Dyson Airwrap

The Dyson Airwrap one of the most popular hairstylers on the market. It has several attachments that you can use to style your hair and it has a special technology that ensures that your hair is not damaged.

A big advantage of the Dyson hair dryer is that it is a very advanced hairstyling tool. It has several temperature settings and it has an integrated cooling system that allows you to cool your hair at the touch of a button. This ensures that your curls stay in shape longer.

In addition, the Dyson Airwrap comes with a lot more attachments. Here's a list of everything you'll need:

  • Airwrap™ long attachment (40mm Ø) for loose, resilient curls and waves in both directions, designed for longer hair
  • Airwrap™ long attachment (30mm Ø) for counterclockwise and clockwise curls with volume, designed for longer hair
  • Gentle smoothing brush for more control and straightening on fine hair, thanks to improved Coanda airflow
  • Round volume brush to add volume deep into hair and shape hair as it dries
  • Filter cleaning brush to easily clean the filter
  • Smoothing hair dryer with Coanda effect for drying and smoothing hair and hiding bouncing hair with one multifunctional attachment
  • Storage box to safely and neatly store the Dyson Airwrap™ multistyler with attachments
  • Firm smoothing brush for smoothing hair that frizzes easily, thanks to firm bristles and improved Coanda airflow.

One disadvantage of the Dyson Airwrap is that it is considerably more expensive than the 5 in 1 airstyler. The Dyson airwrap quickly costs 500 euros and this is out of their budget for many people.

MAE Airstyler 5 in 1 vs. Dyson Airwrap: The Difference

There is a difference between the 5 in 1 Airstyler from MAE and the Dyson Airwrap. The most important ones are described below:


The attachments are about the same of both variants. However, the MAE Airstyler 5 in 1 only has 1 size of curl attachment, where Dyson has 2 sizes. In contrast, the MAE Airstyler Pro does have the 2 sizes. You can find more information about this variant here.

Storage box

With Dyson, you receive a leather case to hold your tool. Unfortunately, MAE does not come with one. However, the Airstyler from MAE does take up less space.


The technology is the same, with both airstylers using Coanda technology.

Styling options

The styling options are similar, both offering multiple attachments that can bring variety.

The Curl

The curl stays just as long. With the Dyson you create slightly more compact curls in the beginning, but after half an hour the effect of both styling tools is the same with the curl attachment.

The Price

The price is the biggest difference. Where the Dyson Airwrap costs about 500 euros, the MAE Airstyler 5 in 1 can be had for €79.95!
