How does Dyson’s new Airwrap compare to the original?

Previously, you had to change tips to create curls and waves in both directions. Next Generation Airwrap Rollers feature a unique rotating tip; one only has to adjust the direction of the airflow with the tip to change the direction of the curl. Besides saving styling time, it also takes up less space in our luggage.

There’s also a new Coanda Smoothing Drying Attachment, which has a pre-drying function to quickly go from wet to damp hair and a smoothing function to tame flyaways. And we’ve improved the blow-drying brushes by removing the stiff shaft in the middle to create an even movement of the bristles, resulting in even more control and hold.

What bits do you most often use on your celebrity clients?

I use the large size roller a lot, because it allows me to create a great style effortlessly. Thanks to the smart heat control, I can leave the tip on the strands for a long time to get smooth, long-lasting movement. I also use the Coanda Smoothing Drying Tip a lot in smoothing mode; Because it’s reversible, it’s super easy to manage, but most importantly, it’s super effective at controlling flyaways. Just select the cold air (because the hot air would change the look of the curl just created with the roller), place the golden rod on the parting line and slide down following the shape of the head.

What’s your best trick for getting your hair done fast with the new Airwrap Hair Dryer?

If you only have 15 minutes, I recommend using the brush in a “C” shaped motion on wide sections. The beauty is that it does not require any expertise: we simply brush our hair, but thanks to the Coanda effect, we obtain a smooth look with a beautiful curvature at the ends.
