Gorgeous waves are minutes – no, not hours, minutes – far when you have the Dyson Airwrap in hand.

The Coanda drying base is powered by a Dyson V9 digital motor, which creates an ultra-powerful stream of air pressure that draws hair to each styling cylinder using less heat than traditional hair dryers. Less heat equals less damage, which is always a win in our book. The powerful blast of air also reduces drying time, and a blowout that usually takes no less than 35 minutes of strenuous arm work for me was achieved in just 15 minutes.
If you are wondering if this hair dryer is really so different from other cheaper options on the market, the answer is a resounding yes. The included attachment heads turn a hair dryer into a curler, straightener and volume builder, and if you’re someone who regularly uses multiple bulky tools to get your job done, the price of a Dyson Airwrap doesn’t seem like much. so high. .
