Hair on the floor and hair on the car seats is to be expected if you (or your pets) have long hair. But hair in the vacuum cleaner brushes? Nah. Not cool. It happens, though, which often results in us reaching for the scissors to free the brushes from clogging up and losing suction as we try to clean our homes. It's so annoying – believe us when we say we know the woes this is causing because it happens to us, especially when vacuuming around the dressing table!
So thank goodness Shark have listened to all the hairy homeowners (or owners of hairy household pets) out there because they have all the Shark Anti Hair wrap vacuum technology one could possibly image for getting things back under control. We thought it was high time to share our experiences of this cleaning revolution and how it has changed our cleaning routine. In fact, it is one of the things that makes us such big fans of Shark vacuums because other brands haven't quite nailed this tech and it is a real timesaver.

What is Sharks's Anti Hair Wrap technology?
The feature can be found on no less than 20 of Shark's vacuum cleaners, in corded, cordless, upright, stick and Lift-Away models. So how does it work? Shark's Anti Hair Wrap technology has a unique bristle-guard and comb which actively separates and removes long, short and pet hair to leave your bristle brush-roll tangle-free. This means that the carpets, hard flooring and car seats can be free of those fly-away hairs and always look presentable.
And, it's not just for long human hair. It's also a top choice for taming pet hair, too. Bless them. They can't help moulting but OMG it can get pretty annoying when hair (of any kind) gets tightly wrapped around a vacuum cleaner’s brush-roll. It's something which can affect the cleaning performance of the vac, too, so your only choice if you don't have Anti Hair Wrap tech is to spend ages cutting hair off the brush with scissors. We have all been there – it's not pretty and could lead to you damaging your brush head.
Should I buy a Shark Anti Hair Wrap vacuum cleaner?
If you have long hair – hell it doesn't even have to be that long to wrap round a brush – or a furry pet then we recommend it as a top buy. Especially if cleaning the brush head is something you really can't be bothered with. And as it is available of loads of different styles of Shark, you won't have to forgo any other features you were after in your new vacuum cleaner
Shark also offer DuoClean tech which means some of their vacuums easily adapt from carpet to hard flooring and these models can come with Anti Hair Wrap. And another feature we love from Shark is the LiftAway tech that allows you to go from upright to cylinder style with ease. Yeah, we know Shark has loads of feature names to get your head around, but each offers functionality we totally need now we know it exists.
So there you have it – long hair really don't care with Anti Hair Wrap!
