Now’s the time to pick up Shark’s coveted appliances for less

November is the ideal time to shop if you’re hoping to bag a bargain, with offers on everything from tech and beauty to fashion, TVs, mattresses and kitchen appliances. And Shark’s Black Friday sale has started ahead of the big day, which lands this week, on 24 November.

With the brand having skyrocketed in popularity in recent years, Shark’s sale is set to be a Black Friday highlight. Shark leads the way when it comes to gadgets, with everything from upright vacuum cleaners and steam mops to spot cleaners and even hair tools in its roster.

Plus, the brand is an IndyBest favourite, having taken the top spot in many of our round-ups, including the best cordless and best corded vacuum cleaners, proving Shark’s products are bestsellers for a reason.

If you’re yet to see what all the fuss is about or want to add a new appliance to your collection, Shark’s month-long Black Friday sale is your chance to potentially save hundreds of pounds – and we’ve found the deals worth snapping up direct from the brand as well as from third-party retailers.

Shark’s four-in-one flexstyle offers similar versatility to Dyson’s cult airwrap, and it’s been reduced by nearly 30 per cent. Complete with four attachments, 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.

According to Shark, the model is so powerful, it can dislodge eight times as much dirt as an average vacuum, and that’s before you’ve used the carpet cleaner function.
