What Is the Dyson Airwrap?
The Dyson Airwrap promises to use "jets of air to achieve voluminous curls, natural waves and smooth blow-dry finishes at home," according to a press release sent to POPSUGAR by the brand. So what does that mean? A motor inside the Dyson Airwrap's wand (the same one used in Dyson's Supersonic hair dryer) creates a high-speed stream of hot air that is then distributed through an attachment, in this case a round barrel to create curls. That means that you can curl your hair as you dry it instead of drying it first, then using a hot curling iron, exposing hair to double the heat. Dyson calls this air flow the Coanda effect.
The Dyson Airwrap Complete ($550), the biggest kit and the one I used, includes a wand and five different attachments for all hair types: a prestyling dryer, a soft brush, two 1.6-inch barrels, two 1.2-inch barrels, a firm brush, and a round brush. The styler also comes in two smaller kits for more specialized needs — the Dyson Airwrap Volume + Shape and the Dyson Airwrap Smooth + Control ($500 each).
