Although Dyson Airwrap is best known for its vacuum cleaners, its initial excursion into the world of beauty with Supersonic hair drier solidified it as a true player in creative personal care goods, and this is one of the best hair dryers we’ve tried.
Dyson’s latest hairstyle gadget, the AirWrap Styler, was released two years later. The Styler is intended to create curls, waves, and bouncy blow drys instead of using high heat, which can leave the strand feeling frizzy and dry.
The Dyson AirWrap Styler is available in three different versions, depending on which attachments are included: Volumes + Shape, Shape + Smooth, and the more costly AirWrap Complete, which includes all of the various styling attachments.

Price and availability
The Dyson Airwrap Styler costs $549.99/£479.99 and comes in two color combinations: nickel/fuchsia and black/purple. In the United Kingdom, also there are nickel/copper and blue/copper variations.
For the same price, Dyson also offers a Long version, which is a better option for those with longer hair. This version has longer barrels but is otherwise identical.
The AirWrap Styler’s design and presentation are nearly flawless, as one would expect from a gadget of this price. It comes inside a tan leather-effect storage locker with a magnetic clasp that looks appealing enough that you’ll want to leave it out rather than put it all away in your closet when not in use.
The Styler is a silver cylinder about 10 inches long with a cerise band from around the top into which the various attachments slip. A power wire to link it to the main supply is located at the bottom.
The control buttons are located near the top of a Styler and include an on/off button, temperature controls, and airflow speed controls.
A pre-styling drier, similar to Dyson’s SuperSonic hairdryer, a firm smoothing brush for creating a soft smoothing brush for a blow-dry effect, straight(ish) hairstyles, and a round volumizing brush are all included in the Dyson AirWrap Complete package.
The AirWrap barrels themselves come in a set of four, with two 30mm barrels in tight curls and two 40mm barrels for loose waves. When the styler turns on, an arrow on each barrel indicates which way the hair should wrap around it; normally, you’ll like to twist the hair out of the face to produce face-framing curls.
Working and performance
It’s simple to remove and replace each attachment just on base, which is a relief because you’ll be doing it frequently to change the curl direction. Whereas the attachments felt warm at times when switching, they were nothing near scalding.
Dyson included a non-slip mat to keep the attachments from scorching your table. However, I found that the mat’s surface area is limitless, and it could only accommodate a few attachments and the base at a time. Because it’s composed of the same faux leather as the case, the mat doesn’t have the finest grip. Be ready for the attachments to come off if you’re not using them on a flat surface.
While the Dyson Airwrap Styler is less than a regular hairdryer, it has a high-pitched sound, similar to that of a dentist’s drill. As a result, the house is still likely to be awakened first thing every morning. It can also be bothersome for others if you use it in curling mode and switch it on and off frequently.
The Dyson Airwrap Styler isn’t particularly heavy at first. However, based on how long you have to carry it, your arms may become fatigued. After about 10 minutes, my arm became fatigued, and I had to swap my hands. If you’re going for a quick style, this won’t be an issue. But if you curl every single strand, prepare. To increase your arm strength, it may be worthwhile to invest in better adjustable dumbbells.
How to use it?
Before you may use Airwrap’s other tools, you must first use the pre-styling dryer to partially dry your hair. For the best results, your hair should be damp but not wet. It’s difficult to gauge how dry your hair is at first, but you’ll get the hang of it – it simply needs to really be dry enough for the Dyson Airwrap styler to complete the job with the styling tool of your choice. With a design that resembles a little Dyson air purifier, the pre-styling drier is simple to operate. Simply aim and lightly dry.
You can spend the most time with the curling barrels. To suck for each lock of hair from its end, you must hold your Dyson Airwrap at the proper angle. After that, keep it in place for several seconds to dry it, and then cool it to set it. It takes no time at all, and the curls are just as good as they would be if you used a curling wand. Switching heads and alternating the curls was the only part of the process that you can find laborious. However, Dyson previously said that this issue can solve in the next major release.
However, we appreciated how safe and simple it was to reach all around the rear of my head without hurting myself, which was a big positive. Although our initial try was a little sloppy, the final picture was natural to please with it – you need to practice to obtain the best results.
The brush attachments
I noticed that styling using the smooth brush attachments was considerably faster. The only problem I had was holding my hair in place when brushing; if I tried to wash from below to enhance volume, it would just blow. The round volumizing brush, on the other hand, had a considerably better grip and was far more successful for this type of styling. Impress with the overall effect, which was sleek and neat. But I’ve seen a very similar result from the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer, which is far less expensive.
Regardless of the attachments I use, my roots remained damp in some areas when I complete. Maybe I have to dry my hair a little longer before styling it, or maybe the Airwrap styler can’t dry as well as a regular hairdryer. It’s not ideal in either situation if you’re going out from the cooler weather right away. To keep the roots dry, you can style them without brushing your hair. But you’d have to damp the ends with water.
Finally, the Dyson Airwrap Styler may assist you in achieving a dazzling look with no effort. While you do get some heat when you dry your hair. It’s not near as much as when you use ceramic hair tools. Therefore it’s a better hair-healthy manner of style. It will take some time to use the method, and you want to understand how to get the greatest results. However, the final result is natural and lasts a long time.
Nevertheless, $550 is an amount of money to pay for hair care. This is why there have been a lot of Dyson Airwrap alternatives. I’d suggest the Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer instead if you interest primarily in straight drying styles. This generated similar outcomes while being significantly more cost-effective. The Dyson Airwrap Styler, on the other hand, is the ideal bet if you desire wavy curls on a regular basis and are concerned about heat damage.
