DIY meets high-performance gadgets – that’s exactly where the beauty industry is headed right now. There’s Foreo UFO, a game-changing facial for women who want amazing skin with the help of technology, and the Temptu Make-up Airbrush Device, which brides in India are getting shipped home. There’s been a fan-following building for Dyson’s Supersonic hair dryer as well, a revolutionary gadget with the soul of a high-end salon hairdresser. Joining this list now is the Dyson Airwrap™ styler.
The premise is basic: The styler uses jets of air to achieve voluminous curls, natural waves, and a smooth finish at home. However, at its core, the product addresses the biggest problem of hair styling – temperature damage that makes hair weak and easily breakable. So, in the styler a high-speed air jet flows combined with heat to achieve the hairstyling result you want. The sleek gadget also comes with multiple styling attachments that give you curls, waves, smooth hair, while actively helping prevent extreme heat damage.
Dyson’s team of engineers and hair scientists have gone all out to understand the challenges and needs of millennial women with hectic jobs. What they found was a need for a gadget that can really shake up a woman’s styling ecosystem, and provide fullness, movement and smoothness without compromising on volume.
Powered by the Dyson V9 digital motor, the device comes with its own unique styling barrels that use air to style hair, with the usage of intelligent heat control. The interesting bit about handling this styler is that it keeps the air flow focused in the desired styling direction according to the tension in the brush. Whichever way you brush, the air flows in that direction, which means a better, sleeker and smooth finish.
The hair attachments are another big draw. There are three different variants with specific attachments for all types of hair. The Pre-styling Dryer is designed to dry hair to the ideal moisture level, while the Soft Smoothing Brush adds body and volume to limp, flat hair while creating a smooth finish. The 40mm Airwrap™ barrel creates loose curls or waves for thicker, coarser hair, and the 30mm Airwrap™ barrel creates voluminous curls or waves. The Smoothing Brush helps create less frizz and reduces tangles. The most interesting part of this device are the clock-wise and anti-clockwise barrels, which create symmetrical curls, and the cool shot which you can give at the end to seal the look.
You can also pick up a product based on your hair type – there is the Dyson Airwrap™ Volume + Shape, and the Dyson Airwrap™ Smooth + Control to tackle frizz. Priced at INR 34,900, it will be available across India January 9, 2019, onwards at the Dyson Demo stores in DLF Promenade and Select CityWalk in New Delhi; VR Mall in Bengaluru; Dyson online; through online partners Nykaa and Amazon; and through the In-Home Demo Service in NCR, Bangalore and Mumbai.
