Dyson has unveiled new attachments for its sellout beauty technology: the Dyson AirwrapTM styler. An additional four attachments – including small soft and firm smoothing brushes and lengthened barrel in both 40mm and 30mm widths – allow users with varying hair lengths and styles to curl, wave, smooth and dry.
The new longer barrels offer great styling options for those with longer hair, defined as hair that extends past chest-length. When styling longer hair, a larger surface area on the barrel is often required to accommodate the full section in one styling. Likewise, the new brush attachments are ideal for those wishing to style fringes or smaller sections of hair. The smaller brush size allows owners to get closer to the scalp to achieve more precise detailing and shaping styling capabilities.
At the heart of this story 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.
“We have been obsessively manipulating airflow for more than 25 years. It is one of our core expertise. Harnessing the power of Dyson’s digital motor we have engineered a truly unique styling tool preventing extreme heat damage when styling. I’m immensely proud of what our engineers have achieved.”James Dyson, Founder & Inventor.
The Dyson AirwrapTM styler comes with different variants with specific attachments, designed with different hair types and desired looks in mind.
Pre-styling dryer: Prepares hair for styling using a fast but diffused airflow. Engineered for all hair types, it’s designed to dry hair to the ideal moisture level (damp to touch) before using the curling barrels.
Soft smoothing brush: Engineered to add body and volume to limp, flat hair while creating a smooth, blow dry finish. Ball-tipped bristles allow for increased tension to help keep hair aligned to the brush.
40mm Airwrap™ barrel: To create loose curls or waves for thicker, coarser hair that has some shape.
30mm Airwrap™ barrel: To create voluminous curls or waves for most hair types. Achieve voluminous curls for those with limp, finer or straighter hair. Get tighter curls for those with thicker, coarser hair with some shape.
Firm smoothing brush: To create a straighter style with less frizz. Engineered to tame and smooth unruly, thicker, coarser hair, with firm straight bristles to help create tension and reduce tangling.
Round volumising brush: To create volume and shape. Ideal for creating tension to shape finer, thinner and straighter hair.
