Did a TikTok Trend Develop a Better Way to Use The Dyson Airwrap?

The name Dyson is certainly synonymous with some of the best vacuums around. But now, the house of Dyson is changing the way we care for our hair with its latest innovations of hair dryers and curling wands.

The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer has been touted as being lighter and faster at drying and less damaging than other models on the market. And, it had the cachet of being innovative and it looked different from anything that had come before. The Airwrap release follows the introduction in spring 2016 of the Supersonic, the doughnut-shaped hair dryer with a $399.99 price tag that was Dyson’s first foray into the beauty market.

While for many, the technique did take some time getting used to – there is a new trend taking the Dyson Supersonic and its ability to new heights – although help seems to have come from an unlikely source, TikTok. So, does the Dyson Airwrap live up to the same high standards as the rest of the Dyson family? And has a TikTok trend really improved its usability?

The Dyson Airwrap TikTok Trend

If you’re a proud owner of the Dyson Airwrap and a TikTok fan, you may have switched up the way you use your Dyson appliance. A user of both the appliance and the application found game-changing information –the pre-styling dryer attachment can actually straighten your hair.

The TikTok trend took off, with users discovering you can just loop sections of your hair through the middle of the pre-styling hole, flip it upside down, and slowly drag the dryer from the top down. It’s a slightly peculiar way to use the device.

Top hairstylists have taken notice however. New York City hairstylist, Matt Newman attempted the trend himself after a follower suggested the move and he successfully straightened his hair. Viral status ensued and when other Dyson Airwrap owners recreated the strategy, they received the same flawless results.

What is the Dyson Airwrap?

As with all Dyson products, it’s more than just the next product on the block. It’s designed and engineered to offer something different – the latest in technology to make life simpler and easier. The appliance promises powerful performance, intelligent heat control, and precise air flow speed.

You have a sizeable range of features to choose from, perfect for styling your hair how you want:

Airflow speed, Heat control and Cold shot

Three precise airflow speeds, four precise heat settings, and a cold shot that immediately deactivates the heating element, all to your styling preferences.

Coanda to curl

Style with air, not extreme heat. The Dyson barrels use an aerodynamic phenomenon called the Coanda effect to attract and then wrap your hair.

Coanda to smooth

The Dyson brushes use the same Coanda effect to attract your hair to the surface of the brush, propelling air along the hair strands for a smooth, straighter style.

Dyson digital motor V9

Dyson’s powerful motor propels the 13-blade impeller fast enough to ensure the right air pressure creates the Coanda effect.

The full Dyson Airwrap complete set includes; the Dyson Airwrap styler, Dyson Hairbrushes, Dyson curling wand and Dyson pre-styling dryer. Included is a 30mm and 40mm Airwrap barrels with a firm and soft smoothing brush and a round volumising brush. A pretty impressive selection that forms the foundation to styling your hair at home with ease.
