2 Hair Styling Tools That Make Great Holiday Gifts

The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and the Dyson Airwrap styler are perfect presents to give — or to receive

In Partnership With Dyson


’Tis the season of good hair days, now that we’ve discovered the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and the Dyson Airwrap styler.

Both have been expertly engineered for different hair types and use intelligent heat control to guard against extreme heat damage so you can simplify your event-prep routine with fantastic, time-saving results. Your desired effect will determine which one of these ultra-effective tools you reach for when getting ready.


The Dyson Supersonic (from $400, three attachments included, others can be purchased separately) hair dryer has a powerful V9 digital motor plus technology that amplifies air for faster drying times. Additionally, both tools go to great lengths to protect locks from extreme heat, measuring the temperature of the exiting air an incredible 40 times per second. This thermal regulation helps to preserve your hair’s natural shine and increase smoothness while keeping frizz and flyaways at bay.

By way of the Coanda effect, an aerodynamic phenomenon which, frankly, must be seen to be believed, the Dyson Airwrap styler (from $500) can re-create the best blow-dry you have ever received. Essentially, your hair is attracted to the styler’s barrel and then self-wraps around it — no clamping mechanism necessary — to be smoothed as air is propelled along each strand, resulting in voluminous curls or waves.


The Dyson Airwrap styler’s attachments include 1.2-inch and 1.6-inch barrels (both clockwise and counterclockwise, naturally, for perfectly symmetrical curls), firm and soft smoothing brushes (to create straight styles), a volumizing brush (to shape hair as it dries) and a pre-styling dryer. Treat your friend, loved one or even yourself to the ultimate holiday gift: the Dyson Airwrap Complete styler kit ($550), which includes every single attachment — not to mention a high number of double-takes from future admirers.
