Following the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, comes the brand’s newest installment of hairstyling goods — the Dyson Airwrap. Multiple attachment tools, including a mini travel-sized version of the dryer in each kit, allows you to curl, wave, and smooth your hair as it dries, making it the perfect time-saving solution. The only catch? A hefty price tag. But at Style Salute, we’re convinced the Airwrap is worth every penny. Who doesn’t want fresh-from-the-salon hair in 10 minutes sans damage?
Since its launch, the Airwrap has continued to fly off shelves, receiving several accolades along the way, including the Allure Best of Beauty Breakthrough award. And for a good reason! Along with a powerful Dyson digital motor, the Airwrap attracts and wraps the hair around the Coanda Effect barrel using only air to set the curls, unlike regular curling irons, which often cause more harm than good in the long-run due to extreme heat settings.
The Airwrap is available to buy in three different kits: Volume +Shape for fine hair ($499.99), Smooth + Control for coarse hair ($499.99), and a complete set with all attachments ($549.99). Volume + Shape comes with two 1.2-inch barrels and a soft smoothing brush. Similarly, the Smooth + Control features two 1.6-inch barrels and a firm brush. And as mentioned earlier, all kits include a detachable Dyson dryer.
While Dyson is been better known for its household items (think vacuums), its team of genius engineers is dedicated to understanding hair and bases their research and on findings that people crave the following in their hair: body, fullness, movement, and smoothness – and the Dyson AirWrap delivers just that. Engineered to curl, smooth and dry hair, this is a magic hair curler without the heat.
At first, the Airwrap can be painfully tricky to use, but mastering the technique is not impossible. The following video from Dyson demonstrates the best way to go about using each tool:
But how is the price justified? Of course, one could argue that any professional-grade curling iron can produce the same results. That said, when it comes to protecting your hair, the Dyson Airwrap is a pretty solid winner. It’s worth the investment for anyone worried about dry, damaged hair after consistently using hot tools. It’s also a game-changer for those of us not looking to spend hours in front of a mirror, trying to style our hair each morning. After all, it’s a multi-purpose, multi-functioning product.
