Salon Quality Hair at Home with Shark Beauty™ Family of Styling Products
In line with the Shark FlexStyle®, the Shark® SmoothStyle™ and Shark® SpeedStyle™ were engineered For All Hairkind™ – for every hair texture and every hair type, from curly and coily, to wavy and straight, and everything in between.
The Shark® SmoothStyle™ Heated Comb Straightener + Smoother is designed to straighten and smooth hair with heated comb technology and without heat damage or frizz to achieve voluminous buttery soft straight hair with finished curved ends. With dual modes, Shark® SmoothStyle™ can be used on wet and dry hair, making it the perfect everyday tool – go from wet to dry on wash day or refresh bedhead, ponytail creases and more.
As the lightest leading digital hair dryer, Shark® SpeedStyle™ is designed to quickly take hair from wet, to dry, to styled with a glossy finish in minutes, without any heat damage. Consumers can choose between two configurations – each equipped with three IQ Speed Styling & Drying Suite™ accessories, including the RapidGloss™ Finisher which collects and smooths flyaways – based on their unique hair type and needs.
Shark® SmoothStyle™ will be available for $99.99 and Shark® SpeedStyle™ will be available for $199.99 on SharkBeauty.com beginning August 15. The products will also be available at domestic and international retailers starting early fall 2023. Shark FlexStyle® is available on SharkBeauty.com and at retailers including Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Amazon, Costco, Best Buy and Kohls.
Since launching last fall, the brand has continued to release new attachment and accessory innovations for the Shark FlexStyle®. Most recently, Shark Beauty™ launched a Storage Case, Round Brush and .95″ Auto-Wrap Curlers, as well as two limited-edition Shark FlexStyle® colorways in black and copper.
