For The Girl Who’s Always On The Go: Dyson Supersonic Hairdryer Special Holiday Gift Edition

Hairdryers can be bulky and tricky to use. Worse, they can blast air at high temperatures that can cause extreme heat damage, all with the risk of hair being sucked in and trapped in the mini exhaust. These issues made Dyson engineers rethink the common hairdryer.

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer uses a fast but focused airflow. It’s engineered for balance and minimal noise, and has intelligent controls for temperature to help protect the hair from extreme heat damage.

The Supersonic gift edition features a limited-edition Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer in fuchsia and nickel, along with a Dyson Vented 1.4” Barrel Brush, designed to create volume and shape as you style, and a Dyson-Designed Detangling Comb, engineered to glide easily through wet and dry hair, detangling with minimal friction.

“Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient, and make a racket. By looking at them further we realized that they can also cause extreme heat damage to hair. I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hairdryer, which we think solves these problems,” says founder and inventor James Dyson.

Hair Science

Dyson has invested £50 million in the development of the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, including creating a state-of-the-art laboratory dedicated to investigating the science of hair. Dyson engineers studied hair from root to tip, understanding how it reacts to stressors, how to keep it healthy, and how to style it.

Over four years, they tested the product on different hair types and built test rigs that mechanically simulate hair drying techniques (which can differ around the world!). To date, Dyson engineers have used over 1,010 miles of real human hair in testing.

Motor-Enabled

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is powered by the patented Dyson Digital Motor V9, created in-house by a team of over 15 motor engineers dedicated specifically to this machine. It is designed to offer quick-drying at minimal weight. Moreover, it is small enough to be positioned in the handle rather than the head, all thanks to its powerful yet compact motor.

Helps Protect Natural Shine

Some conventional hairdryers can reach extreme temperatures, especially when held close to your tresses. ICYDK, this can cause extreme heat damage to the hair! The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer has intelligent heat control, helping ensure that hair isn’t exposed to excessive temperatures. A glass bead thermistor measures the temperature and transmits this data to the microprocessor, which intelligently controls the patented double-stacked heating element.

Fast And Focused

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer uses Dyson’s patented Air Multiplier Technology. The volume of the air drawn into the motor is amplified due to this technology, producing a high pressure, high-velocity jet of air. This creates a focused jet of air, angled for controlled, precise drying and styling at the same time!

Acoustic Engineering

A team of Dyson aero-acoustic engineers sought to understand how the acoustics of this machine could be optimized. By using an axial flow impeller inside the motor, they have simplified the pathway of the air, reducing turbulence and swirling. And by giving the motor impeller 13 blades instead of the usual 11, Dyson engineers pushed one tone within the motor to a sound frequency beyond the audible range for humans.

Also, because the motor is small and compact, they have been able to embed it in the handle, surrounded by acoustic silencers to further reduce sound. Isn’t that great?

Settings And Attachments

The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer has four heat settings, three airflow settings, and a cold shot, too! Dyson engineers have created three magnetic attachments, with 16 patents pending, to further control airflow allowing you to achieve a range of different styles. Here's everything you'll love about the attachments:

1. The Dyson Engineered Smoothing Nozzle dries hair gently, using smooth, wide air, allowing you to dry and style at the same time.

2. The Dyson Diffuser is engineered to disperse air evenly around each curl, helping reduce frizz and improve definition.

3. Attachments remain cool to the touch! Using Heat Shield Technology, the hot air is contained within a sandwich of cold air, meaning that the surfaces of the attachment stay cool.

4. Each nozzle is magnetic, so they’re easy to attach and adjust.

5. There are multiple settings, including constant cool to set your style, four heat settings, three airflow settings, and a cold shot, too!

For The Girl Who Loves Experimenting With Her Looks: Dyson Airwrap Styler

After the runaway success of the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, Dyson follows up with its second piece of beauty technology: The Dyson Airwrap Styler. This style item uses jets of air to allow users to achieve voluminous curls, natural-looking waves, and smooth blow-dry finishes right at home.

The teams researched current styling technologies and identified what they feel to be areas for improvement: Tangled hair, temperature damage, size or weak and unruly airflow.

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,” Dyson shares.

Dyson’s team of engineers and hair scientists spent more than six years testing and researching different hair types and styling habits around the world. They identified two key desires and challenges when it comes to styling:

1. People desire body, fullness, and movement. They want to avoid limp hair with little body.

2. Others desire smoothness without losing volume. They tend to suffer from frizz and too much body, which can make styling difficult.

The Dyson Digital Motor V9 powers the Dyson Airwrap Styler. Partnered with Dyson’s unique styling barrels, this motor enables the hair tool to style with air without the need for extreme heat.

The machine’s styling brushes are also engineered to take advantage of the Coanda Effect. To achieve a sleek blow-dry finish, the brushes align hair when styling, helping to provide a smooth shiny look when dry.

In order to keep the airflow focused in the desired styling direction, engineers incorporated a switching mechanism. This directs airflow according to the tension in the brush. No matter which way you brush through hair strands, the air flows in the direction of your hair. This helps achieve a stylist-inspired blow-dry finish.

Often, styling hair means blow-drying before styling. But the Dyson Airwrap Styler can help you create looks even when your tresses are still damp. Hydrogen bonds line each strand of your hair. When hair is wet, hydrogen bonds are broken down, resetting your hair and priming it for styling.

After choosing the attachment for your desired look, the combination of powerful airflow and heat control allows you to easily style without extreme heat, saving time and avoiding tangling.

Intelligent Heat Control

Like the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer, the Dyson Airwrap Styler has intelligent heat control. A glass bead thermistor measures the temperature, transmitting temperature data to the microprocessor and regulating the product’s temperature. This helps ensure that your hair does not become exposed to extreme heat.

Attachments

The Dyson Airwrap Styler comes in three different variants with specific attachments, designed with different hair types and desired looks in mind. Check these out:

1. The 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) in preparation for the curling barrels.

2. The Soft Smoothing Brush is 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 the hair aligned to the brush.

3. Use the 40mm Airwrap Barrel to create loose curls or waves for thicker, coarser hair that has some shape.

4. Try the 30mm Airwrap Barrel to create voluminous curls or waves, ideal for most hair types. This will help those with limp, finer, or straighter hair achieve voluminous curls. For those with thicker, coarser tresses, this attachment can help them get tighter curls.

5. The Firm Smoothing Brush helps create a straighter style with less frizz. Engineered to tame and smooth unruly, thicker, coarser hair, firm straight bristles help create tension and reduce tangling.

6. Reach for the Round Volumizing Brush if you want to create volume and shape. This is ideal for creating tension to style finer, thinner, and straighter hair.

For The Girl Who Loves A Sleek Style: Dyson Corrale Straightener

The Dyson Corrale Straightener uses patented Dyson flexing plates that shape to gather hair, delivering enhanced styling with less reliance on heat, while also being cord-free. This will help you achieve outstanding style anywhere, at any time, quickly.

Science Of Styling

To straighten hair, a combination of heat, tension and control is required—heat to break the hydrogen bonds in the hair, tension and compression to reshape these bonds, and control to apply heat and tension evenly.

Dyson’s extensive testing highlights that flat plate straighteners can only apply heat and tension to the thickest part of the hair. This means that towards the edges of your tresses, there are loose strands that are not treated or tensioned. These become fly-aways and are only brought into the tress through repeated passes, by which time excessive heat has been applied to the hair, which can cause a reduction in hair strength, gloss, and color.

Pioneering Corralling Plate Technology

Dyson has developed a complex manganese copper alloy plate, featuring a carefully balanced amalgamation of six metals to provide the optimum flexibility, strength, and thermal conduction. Each plate is precision-machined and tourmaline-edged to produce ionizing properties that help reduce static.

The flexing plates of the Dyson Corrale straightener mold to shape and gather the hair, giving the user great control and therefore, elevating the styling results while reducing the reliance on heat. As the plates adapt to the hair, they apply tension more evenly and stop strands from splaying. This control allows outstanding styles to be created with less reliance on heat.

Intelligent Heat Control

The Dyson Corrale Straightener has three precise heat settings: 165°C, 185°C, and 210°C. These temperatures allow the user to tailor the settings to suit their hair type and desired style. This adaptability, combined with the increased control provided by the flexing plates, allows users to style at lower temperatures without compromising the results.

Much like the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer and the Dyson Airwrap Styler, the Dyson Corrale Straightener features Intelligent Heat Control technology. This technology communicates with a microprocessor, which in turn controls the heating system to deliver precise, accurate heat.

Four Cell Lithium-Ion Battery

It’s Dyson’s expertise in battery technology, born from the development of cord-free vacuum cleaners, that has informed the cord-free capabilities of the Dyson Corrale Straightener.

Powered by a four-cell lithium-ion battery, this straightener delivers cord-free versatility and universal voltage allowing users to style anywhere, anytime. A flight mode feature also ensures the device meets air travel standards and can be packed in cabin luggage for travel.

The Dyson Corrale Straightener fully recharges in around 70 minutes and provides up to 30 minutes of cord-free styling. Placing the straightener into the ergonomic charging dock at regular intervals while styling, or alternatively attaching the magnetic 360° charging cable, provides a hybrid charge mode for longer styling sessions.

For The Girl Who Loves Chilling At Home: Dyson Pure Cool Tower Air Purifier Fan (TP00)

Rounding off the Dyson gift list is the Dyson Pure Cool Tower Air Purifier Fan (TP00). This helps clean the air inside your home, removing harmful, ultrafine particles as well as pollen, bacteria, and pet dander. The 360° Glass HEPA Filter captures ultrafine particles from most angles.

A remote control allows you to adjust the level of air circulation depending on the day’s atmospheric environment. Additionally, the back is magnetized to be placed on the fan so it is always within easy reach.
