Features of the Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler

One of the first things you’ll want to note about the Dyson Airwrap Hair styler is that it has the ability to replace all of the hair tools that you are currently using. Its main features include drying and styling hair but it also has a firm and soft smoothing brush attachments as well as a round brush attachment. The attachments use magnets to stick to the Airwrap itself so you will not have to worry about struggling to switch attachments if you are in a hurry!

Another important feature of this product is that it is actually safer for your hair than other heat tools. This is because it has intelligent heat control that measures air temperature more than 40 times a second to prevent heat damage while you style your hair.

Another selling point for this product is the fact that it is faster than other hair dryers on the market today. Although, if you are not in a hurry, you can choose from regular or gentle drying speeds (as opposed to fast). You also have full control over the amount of heat that is applied to your hair. These settings include fast drying and styling, regular drying, gentle drying, and constant cold. Even when you have the device on a heated setting, it will remain cool to the touch, unlike other heat tools.

The Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler has a unique design that puts the motor in the handle of the device. This makes the device is lightweight and easy to move around your head when styling your hair. In addition to being lightweight, the Airwrap Styler tuned to produce one inaudible frequency. This means that you can dry and style your hair whenever you want without bothering the people you live with.

Here are our ratings for different aspects of the Dyson Airwrap based on the pros, cons, key features, and overall effectiveness of the hair styler. We averaged these ratings together to come up with our overall rating of 4.1 stars out of 5 stars.

Ease Of Use – 4
Durability – 2
Heat Output – 5
Price – 4
Options – 5
Power – 5

Ease Of Use: As with most hair tools, there is a bit of a learning curve to the Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler if you are hoping to style your hair, in addition, to blow drying it. However, if you have experience doing traditional “blowouts” with a round brush, you will likely catch on quickly. There is also an abundance of tutorials online to help you learn how to properly use the tool.

Durability: The durability of this product is an obvious weakness, especially for the price. Some devices have been known to fall apart after months or sometimes weeks of use.

Heat Output: The user is in complete control of the heat setting during the styling and drying process. This tool offers enough heat to simultaneously dry and style your hair. Plus, it has an option to operate in cool settings if you prefer not to use heat.

Price: The price point is higher for this hair tool than a lot of tools on the market. However, you need to consider that you are getting multiple tools all wrapped up in one when you invest in this tool.

Options: Even though it is a relatively small hair tool, the Airwrap has a ton of options. You can choose which attachments to use (if any) and customize the amount of heat applied and the speed that it will dry/style your hair.

Power: The Airwrap is equipped with the Dyson digital motor V9. This motor measures 27 mm and has a 13 blade impeller that can generate 3.5kPa of pressure. This sends 13 liters of air through the amplifier every second.

Hair Types: The Airwrap is intended for use on all hair types. Due to the nature of this product, you will want to take caution to use small sections if your hair is thicker than normal. This tool should help to volumize all hair types. It will work on frizzy and wavy hair that may resist other styling tools. It will also style dry and damaged hair. In the long run, you may see improvement in your overall hair health since you won’t be exposing it to harmful heat on a daily basis.

Advanced Heat Technology: This hair dryer is different from others on the market because it has built-in sensors that help determine the amount of heat your hair needs depending on how wet or damp it is. This may sound gimmicky, but the sensors are accurate and will truly provide your hair with just the right amount of heat it needs to dry quickly.

Lightweight: If you currently have a bulky hair dryer, your arm may be sore after you finish drying your hair! This definitely won’t be the case with the Airwrap. Its small design allows you to blow dry and style your entire head of hair without breaking a sweat.

Professional Styling: If your hair dryer alone is not providing you with salon-grade blowouts, then the Airwrap may be the tool that you have been looking for. Even without the attachments, the Airwrap gives the hair light and volumized appearance. If you use one of the attachments, you can easily achieve soft, touchable curls or give your hair that extra touch of volume. You’ll look like you start every morning at the salon!

Doesn’t Have a Fan: This product does not have a fan-like traditional hairdryers so you do not have to worry about your hair getting tangled in the fan while trying to blow dry it. This is great for those of us that have a thick head of hair that always manages to find its way to the fan.

You can easily achieve a curly look with the Dyson that would be similar to the style you would get if you used the T3 Whirl. Both sets have multiple wands so that you can customize the size of your curl. The Dyson would win if you were trying to style your hair in a time crunch. If you were looking for tighter curls or the ability to customize your curl look, you’d probably be better off to go with the T3 Styling Wand.

Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler vs. GHD Curve 1” Classic Curl Iron

This GHD curling iron is a professional grade styling tool that promises smooth, shiny, long-lasting curls. The unique design of the wand allows you to curl your hair from different angles to achieve a number of different looks. This curling iron is on the pricier side. Again, if you are looking for tight curls, the GHD Curve Classic would be a great option. But, when you opt for a curling iron you have to allow the extra time to dry your hair and think about the amount of heat that you are applying to your hair for this one style. If speed and a natural look are what you are craving, the Dyson should do the job beautifully.

Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler vs. Beachwaver PRO 1 Curling Iron

The Beachwaver Pro Curling Iron is designed to give you the beachy wave look without actually having to spend a day at the beach in the salty water. This particular beach-waver features a medium sized barrel. If you are trying to create beachy waves, you’ll likely want a tool like the Beachwaver Pro because it will allow you to loosely wrap the curls to avoid the “ringlet” look. This look would be difficult to achieve with the Dyson Airwrap due to the combination of the curling barrel attachment and constant airflow.


Overall, the Dyson Airwrap Hair Styler is a great tool to invest in if you are looking to replace multiple tools in your hair styling arsenal. It is great for those who need to cut down the time they spend on their hair in the morning because it combines drying with styling! The Dyson Airwrap is best for people who are looking for an everyday blowout look or loose curls. There is a learning curve, but there are a lot of resources online to help you get to know your new Dyson Airwrap!
