..........or someone lost my mind for me!!!

 

One of the bloggers I kind of follow was demoing the newer Dyson straightener.  She spoke about how it would curl.

 

The Kicker?  $499.00!!!

 

Color me my hair "curled from the price"!  Permanent beach waves!

 

No doubt "blogger" got hers free!!!

IMO, Dyson products are always ridiculously over-priced.  I might pay that for a vacuum, but never for a hair styling appliance.

Dyson has lost their mind.  The average woman is not going to pay $499 for a hair tool.  Only people that are millionaires can buy that tool.  However, as the saying goes, you can get more bees with honey -- lower your prices, Dyson -- come back to Earth.

Dyson seems to be doing just fine.  I hear the hair dryer is so popular, they can't keep them in stock.  I have one of their expensive fans and it it quit tonight, I'd buy another tomorrow.

@Kachina624 - I'm sure Dyson has its fans (no pun intended); I'm not one of them.  I had one of their top-of-the-line vacuum cleaners.  It was heavy and cumbersome and had two problems within a couple of years; that was just with normal use.  The cost of replacement parts was crazy.

 

I replaced it with a Shark; have had that for over ten years now; not a single issue and it does a much better job of cleaning.  It's also much easier to use and more intuitive.  (If it breaks tomorrow, I'll go out and buy another one.)

 

I simply can't see any justification for the prices attached to hair dryers or curling/straightening irons.  But, as you say, some will think they're worth the money.

Re: I Think I Lost My Mind....

So my hairdresser at the salon, back when I went there.....has a Dyson hair dryer.

 

For her it was worth every penny to get a client out of her chair quickly so she can seat the next.

 

In her business, time is money.

Re: I Think I Lost My Mind....

I agree that the prices are a little crazy, but my Dyson Airwrap is one of my favorite purchases ever.  I don't think the curling things are that great, but absolutely love the dryer and the brush attachments.  I can dry my hair in half the time of other dryers (and I have had many high end and low end blow dryers) and it looks so much better than I could ever get it before with a dryer and hair brush.

 

It's definitely a splurge item.  For me it's worth it since I have finicky hair and how my hair looks plays a big part in how I feel, but I totally understand why some people wouldn't think it was worth it.

 

We all have to decide for ourselves what is worth spending extra money on.

I agree.  I have the heater/fan combo (along with the cordless vac) and the performance is absolutely superb!  Couldn't think of living without it here in AZ!!

If the Dyson replaces a weekly blow out, it would pay for itself in less than 3 months.
