The innovative Airwrap styler, which was launched in 2018, is propelled by the Dyson digital motor V9 and uses Coanda technology (we'll get on to that one) to easily achieve voluminous curls, natural waves and smooth blow-dry finishes. As such, the Airwrap acts as curling iron, hair dryer and hot-air brush in one.

And though retailing at the more expensive end of the styling tools market at around £450.00, (although, let's be honest, there's nothing else like it out there) the powerful styler is guaranteed to save you hundreds on blowdries in the longterm. (And garner you hundreds of compliments along the way.)

How does the Dyson Airwrap work?

According to Dyson, "At the heart of the Dyson Airwrap styler comes a radical idea: harness Dyson’s digital motor to create a phenomenon known as the Coanda effect. The Coanda effect occurs when a high-speed jet of air flows across a surface and, due to differences in pressure, the air flow attaches itself to the surface.

Taking advantage of this principle Dyson’s team of aerodynamicists created a way to style hair using only air combined with heat. The result, whether you choose to curl, wave, smooth or rough dry your hair, creates a natural look with a sleek finish, helping prevent extreme heat damage."

This is because, unlike most hair styling tools, the Airwrap doesn't rely on heat alone to change the bonds within the hair structure to reset them into a new style. By using air to achieve volume in a curl or blowdry, the Airwrap avoids extreme heat damage. It also has an inbuilt heat control to measure and regulate heat – keeping temperatures below 150 degrees celsius. So no dull, frazzled hair here.

What's different about the new Dyson Airwrap attachments?

The Dyson Airwrap styler barrels are engineered with flow-vane geometry, which attracts, wraps and curls hair using the Coanda effect. The brand's newly launched 20mm barrels are longer and thinner than their 30mm sister barrels, and are designed to deliver tighter curl styles. The new 20mm barrels are also perfect for those with finer hair, as they work to enhance curl retention and hold.

Meanwhile Dyson's newly-launched Small Round Volumising Brush is the perfect attachment for very short hair and fringes. The Dyson smoothing brushes use the Coanda effect to attract hair to the surface of the brush, propelling air along the hair strands to mimic a hairdresser's sleek blow-dry technique.
