And don’t know who on earth gave those styling rods the hot pink and black colour. Simply irresistible! But wait, before you plan to fall all for the temptation and dig out a big hole in your pocket to buy that fancy hair machine, we give you a detailed breakdown of whether to buy it or not. Taking calculated and informed decisions is the trait of a smart woman, and we all are surely smart enough, aren’t we?
About the Brand - DYSON
For those unaware, DYSON is a British technology company that is headquartered in Chicago, Illinois, United States. It was established in the United Kingdom by James Dyson in 1991. It was known as Barleta Limited at the time of its inception, but later got the name, Dyson. The company designs and manufactures advanced technology-based household appliances like vacuum cleaners, air purifiers, hand dryers, bladeless fans, heaters, hair dryers and lights. Most of us would have better heard of the brand in connection to hair dryers and vacuum cleaners.
Dyson made a top headline entry into the Indian market somewhere around August 2017. It established its first retail store in New Delhi and then went on to open many more stores across the country. It imports its current sales in India from Singapore and Malaysia and does not have a manufacturing unit set up in India yet. As of date, the Dyson hair dryers, vacuum cleaners and air purifiers are sold both online and offline at top Indian consumer brands.
How Does the Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler Work?
After touching upon the Dyson brand’s background, let’s now address the main subject that has us all beauty queens intrigued. What is the Dyson Airwrap hair styler all about and is it really worth the hype?
Putting the fact straight from the very start – the product is what it claims! It comes with barrels and brushes for both sides of the hair that curl hair into light or hard beachy waves, as desired. Not just that, the styler works on very low heat temperatures and does not cause much harm to the hair. Apart from curling, it does not break the hair from the middle or pull out moisture from them. Rather it adds shine, bounce and volume to the hair.
Traditional hairstyling rods and irons typically use 200 degrees celsius of heat to style hair effectively. But with Dyson, you can easily style your hair at a temperature of about 120-140 degrees celsius. In fact, the Dyson Airwrap hair styler never touches the heat limit beyond 148 degrees celsius. Also, it has an automatic temperature control that takes care of our hair and ensures no burning or damage happens to them. We can just peacefully focus on getting those strands of hair curled well and not worry about burning our hair. Safe to say that with Dyson Airwrap hair styler, our hair are in safe hands, or rather should we say, barrels?
What Attachments Come With the Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler?
We all love to experiment with our hair. Every outfit and occasion asks for a different hairstyle. And rushing to the salon and spending hours there just to get a blow-dry or beachy wavy hair sounds so tedious even to mention. It almost feels like a dream come true when we can style our hair differently just sitting at home. Whether you wish to blow dry your hair straight, do some in curls or opt for soft beachy waves or hard curls, a Dyson Airwrap hair styler can do all that for you.
One might be able to purchase a nice hair straightening rod or a curling rod from a reputed brand at a cheaper cost, but no brand has been able to come up with a superlative tool that can do all the hairstyling with just a few changes of the attachments. The sole purpose of technology at the end of the day is to make our lives easier, isn’t it?
Let’s talk about the hardware specifications of this dream styling tool. The Dyson Airwrap hair styler is a 10.5 inches long wand that is light in weight and very convenient to hold. It has a head that can bear the different attachments that come with the styler. While holding it, one can easily maneuver the power button, heat settings and fan speed that fall within easy reach of the fingers.
The styler comes in three versions:
- Volume and Shape– This is for the super fine and thin hair that needs structure and weight to make them look more voluminous and bouncy. It comes with two 1.2-inch curling barrels, a round brush for in curls, a smoothening brush and a blow dryer.
- Smooth and Control– This one is for super frizzy, unmanageable hair. It comes with 1.2-inch and 1.6-inch curling barrels. This is in case you wish to create either smaller or bigger curls, a smoothening brush and a blow dryer. This set does not have a round brush.
- The Complete Set– This has all the attachments and can take care of any sort of hair – dry, brittle, thick, thin, anything. Unless you are a hairstylist or have to share your Dyson Airwrap styler with your family (who have different hair types), there is no purpose in buying the complete set.
Having said all of this, it might help you breathe a sigh of relief, that each of these attachments can be bought separately as well. You can buy the short and long barrels and also the smoothening brush and the round brush and they fit into the wand perfectly well.
Pros and Cons of the Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler
In those hairstyling videos on Instagram and YouTube (the ones that have got their creators millions of views), we have all seen how magically the hair wrap themselves around the Dyson barrels. Well, it is called the Dyson Airwrap styler for a reason. But it all looks so magical. As if our rebellious hair, that would just refuse to listen to us, would wishfully dance to the tunes of the Dyson Airwrap.
But that is where the secret of this styling tool really lies. It is in the way air flows out of the barrel. Owing to its robust vacuum technology (the one they use in their vacuum cleaners), Dyson has managed to bring about the Coanda effect with the airflow. How it happens is that the Dyson Airwrap tool uses a powerful internal motor that has the strength to create a vortex of air inside the hollow barrel. This turmoil of air pulls the hair close to it and wraps and grips the hair around the barrel. This effectively brings about the desired curls in the hair without the user having to try too hard to wrap the hair perfectly around the tool. The heat temperatures manage them on their own and with a smooth effortless coil; we get stunning curls in our hair.
None of the other hair styling tools has been able to achieve this effect of magnificence in hair styling to date. To state the truth, you might get the same effect for straightened blow-dried hair with any other ironing rod or straightener, but when it comes to curls, no other tool can give you the same lush, voluminous results.
Another advantage of the Dyson styler is that it leaves hair with a lot of shine and polish. Also, the hairdo does not look too made up or hard styled. It gives a very natural bounce and vigour to the hair length.
For women who style their hair almost every day or do not feel dressed up till the time they give a nice blow-dry to their hair, this styler is a must-have. It would show the least amount of damage to your hair and would keep them strong and nourished for long. Always remember to use a heat protection serum before you introduce your hair to such tools. Any amount of heat is not a piece of good news for the hair and if you wish to save yourself the damage, better to take precautions beforehand.
The list of Dyson Airwrap over other tools in the market is quite endless, so here is another one for you. Both the 1.2 inches and the 1.6 inches barrels come in sets of two. One barrel is designed for a clockwise movement and the other for an anticlockwise. You may create gorgeous in-turn or out-turn curls by using the desired one on the respective side. This way you get a new look each time you style your hair and also you can play around well with creating a face-framing hairstyle for yourself.
Even the amateur and the unskilled at hairstyling can also create some stunning hairstyles with this multi-functional hair styler. Such is the ease with which it can be used. No more envying those pro-hairstyling influencers and girls with the perfect curls. You can quite master the art just at the touch of that power button.
There is only one disadvantage or rather a shortcoming that you will encounter while using your Dyson Airwrap styler. While using the hairdryer or the smoothening brush, it won’t completely straighten your hair. Your hair would not be all flat and sleek straight. It would still have very mild waves and maybe the hair won’t feel settled. For this, you can always top it up with an ironing rod or a heat straightener. Again, this is for those who want to have a perfectly straight look for their hair. For a natural hair look, the Dyson styler does just fine.

The pricing is certainly high but look at it as a one-time investment. It will save you all the trips to the salon, and all the stress over brittle, lifeless hair and also makes your looks impeccable and stylish.
Though it would pinch your heart a bit at once, your hair are going to always thank you for this love.
