When Dyson dropped their Supersonic Hair Dryer back in 2016 it was an industry game-changer. Light, fast, and visually 'alternative', one use and it made your hair look and feel like salon-prepped heaven.
Originally famous for their iconic vacuums featuring patented technology (that frankly we still don’t understand), the release of the Supersonic certainly raised a few (perfectly manicured) eyebrows. This must-have item went on to be a global sell out—and one seriously powerful beauty tool.
Fast-forward two years and we’ve been spoilt with another Dyson drop of the beauty variety; the Dyson Airwrap Styler.
Feast your eyes on this beast:
Essentially a self-twirling curling iron, straightener, volumizer, and all-round perfect tresses-making gadget, this nifty little wand promises it can (and will) replace the need for a blow dryer, curling iron and wand—even your beloved straightener. Basically, it ‘sucks’ up your hair (using that patented technology), then releases perfectly coiffed strands, be they bouncy, poker straight or wavy.
The Airwrap comes with five detachable accessories—two barrels, a smoothing brush, a volumizing brush and the original pre-styling dryer—to ensure you never have a bad hair day again. Plus, there’s no heat damage as the Airwrap doesn’t use heat to style, and you can use it on wet hair. (Anyone else’s heart racing right now?)
Now, the bad news: is it’s retailing at an eye-watering $690. That’s not to say this isn’t an almighty worthwhile investment. It 100% is. Just better start being extra nice to people if you want this for Christmas…Got a lot of spare cash lying around? Get your hands on the Airwrap here.
Can’t bear to part with that kind of cash for a hair styler. We get you. Here’s three alternatives on the market that’ll still give you the hair of your dreams. Just maybe not all-in-one style…
