What’s new about the updated Dyson Airwrap?

When a brand like Dyson announces it’s got some new technology on the way, you sit up and listen – after all, this is the team that created a hairdryer so silent and speedy transformed the blow-dry exprience, and later launched the revolutionary Airwrap styling tool.

Well, it’s the Dyson Airwrap we’ll be talking about today, because the styler has been ‘radically redesigned’, promising faster, easier styling without extreme heat.

So, what’s new about the 2022 version of the Dyson Airwrap multi-styler?

Well, firstly, the new barrels can rotate in either direction, so you can create clockwise and anti-clockwise curls and waves without the need to switch the attachment mid-styling session.

Then there’s the Coanda smoothing dryer, which now combines two attachments in one. This can be used to tame flyaways in a single pass, and now also transforms into a powerful dryer at the flick of a switch.

Plus, the tool has been revamped to cater to more hair types and styles. For example, a there’s a wide-tooth comb attachment, engineered for curly and coily hair, which helps to add shape, volume, and length as it dries. Dyson’s comb teeth are designed with soft curved tips to glide through the hair, with no sharp edges to catch, pull or cause damage.

‘Most styling tools ignore that hair types are very different – what attachment may work for one, could be detrimental to another,’ says Dyson founder James Dyson about the new launch.

The new Dyson Airwrap is definitely an investment item, costing £479.99. However, if you bought the previous Dyson Airwrap, don’t fret about having to shell out the full amount again – you can get the upgraded set of attachments for £149.99. It is available to buy now from the Dyson website.

Jen Atkin, Dyson Global Styling Ambassador, said: ‘The Dyson AirwrapTM is a styling revolution and unlike any other tool – back when it first launched and still today. Now, the tool does even more, allowing owners to personalise to suit their styling preferences, personalised for their hair type. You can ensure every attachment in your box delivers your desired style, specific to your hair type. Something you thought couldn’t get better, just did.’
