Some cause frizz and damage, while others work well but only for a specialized purpose. Released in 2018, the Dyson Airwrap is probably the closest any company has come to releasing the perfect multi-use hair styler. Designed to quickly dry and style all hair types, the Dyson Airwrap comes with a wide range of attachments to help you get the perfect style every time.

What is Dyson Airwrap?

The Dyson Airwrap stems from the brand’s dedication to technology and innovation, and the Airwrap reflects that in how well it performs and how stylish it looks. The Airwrap is designed to always create a smooth, polished style. Using negative ions, the device reduces static so you never have any unwanted frizz. It also allows you to manage your airflow speeds, with three different settings that you can easily adjust using a sliding control on the handle. You can also control the heat settings, choosing between four different options – so you are never exposing your hair to more heat than it needs. It also has a separate “Cold Shot” setting that quickly shuts off the heating elements to allow an instant blast of cold air.

How does Dyson Airwrap work?

Dyson airwrap, worth itDesigned to utilize the Coanda effect, the Airwrap uses the flow of air to attract the hair to the styler and safely wrap it around the barrel or brush. While it does have a heating element, because the device primarily uses air rather than heat to produce results, it is much less damaging to your hair. It further prevents heat damage by carefully monitoring and controlling the device temperature, in fact, the Dyson Airwrap measures the air temperature 40 times a second to ensure that the heat never exceeds 150℃. Dyson also makes recommendations, and has specialized attachments, for different hair types, so you can customize your experience.

What attachments come with Dyson Airwrap?

Speaking of attachments, the Dyson Airwrap has several different interchangeable attachments, making it a true multi-use tool. The Complete Kit comes with two styling barrels, in 20mm and 40mm sizes, for producing curls and adding volume. It also includes a firm smoothing brush for straightening and adding volume while reducing frizz for longer hair, and a small smoothing brush that offers the same benefits but in a smaller shape – perfect for short hair, fine hair and styling bangs. If you like to dry your hair while you style, the round volumizing brush attachment allows you to create voluminous, smooth styles, even when starting with damp hair.

The Complete Kit also includes a Pre-Styling Dryer that has a similar design to the Dyson Supersonic, except that it is somewhat less powerful. This attachment is great for quickly drying hair, or getting soaking hair dry enough for styling. All of these attachments, plus many others, can also be purchased individually – so you can customize your experience to meet your needs and hair type. Always available in the classic Iron and Fuschia colorway, Dyson periodically releases different finishes and accessory kits (like the Black and Purple Dyson-exclusive colorway currently available). Dyson also sells many different storage and traveling cases, so you can neatly store and travel with your Dyson Airwrap. In fact, the Complete Kit comes with its own storage kit that allows all of the included accessories to be nestled into a leather storage case with a magnetic closure.

Is Dyson Airwrap worth it?

While a lot more expensive than other hair styling tools out there, the Dyson Airwrap may be well worth the splurge, as it not only comes with the brand-backed two year warranty but also a wide array of attachments and accessories. This is one of the few truly multi-use hair styling tools on the market, and there is a reason it has won numerous awards and been a fan favorite for years. Dyson hair styling tools are considered some of the best in the industry, and the Airwrap is no exception.
