It’s fair to say that the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler was a game-changing hair tool when it was first launched in 2018, and the new updated version delivers even more for different hair types. If you’re a fan of the Airwrap you’ll know what I mean when I say you literally don’t need any other hair tool, it’s a hair dryer, straightener, curler and much more, all in one easy-to-use tool.

This new version is specifically designed for people with long hair and it promises a simplified styling process with salon-level results for all hair types and textures. The Dyson Airwrap has six available attachments which help it deliver on this promise. Those attachments are: the Coanda smoothing dryer, soft smoothing brush, firm smoothing brush, round volumising brush, 30mm barrel and 40mm barrel.

So how did I find the new Dyson Airwrap? As someone with long, fine hair I’ve generally found using hair tools a bit of a struggle as barrels often don’t seem quite long enough or I end up getting my hair tangled as it’s pretty prone to tangling anyway. One of the things I loved about this tool are the longer barrels which are 50% longer than Dyson’s standard barrels and meant I could wrap my hair more easily.

I hadn’t used the original Dyson Airwrap before so I have to admit trying the 40mm curling barrel with the Coanda effect, which attracts, holds and wraps the hair on the barrel by itself, was pretty fun and I did marvel a bit at first at how cleverly this tool is engineered. A twist of the knob at the top of the barrel changes the direction of the airflow which is a new feature for the updated Airwrap. Because the new version has tighter pressure and more controlled airflow it offers bouncier curls with more staying power which is perfect for those of us who find our curls are flat an hour or two after using a hair tool no matter how much hair spray etc. you use.

Applying some heat protectant, then sectioning my hair, I was able to make pretty, soft curls quite quickly which with a bit more practice would look salon-worthy and is the kind of style that I would use most often. I freely admit that I don’t use hair tools as much as I used to these days and like any beauty tool it’s always helpful to have a few practice tries to really get the hang of it for the results you’re after. Those waves did last longer than they usually would in my hair though which I was definitely pretty happy with.

The Dyson Airwrap has three heat settings but generally feels pretty cool to the touch which is a nice change from the many burns I have given myself over the years with high-heat straighteners and curling tongs, I know there’s lots of you that know what I mean there! The new Coanda smoothing dryer attachment is meant to smooth hair and reduce frizz while offering a beautiful blow dried look and it definitely delivers. My hair can be a bit flyaway at the best of times but the soft smoothing brush attachment creates smooth, sleek hair easily and if you prefer a bit more volume then the round brush attachment offers great lift and creates bouncier hair.

I don’t consider myself an expert hair tool user, so it took a little bit of playing around to figure out what worked best for my hair but browsing a few of the videos on Dyson’s website and some YouTube tutorials was super helpful and it didn’t take too long to get the hang of the Dyson Airwrap and it’s clever attachments. At RRP $999 it’s definitely an investment but if you’re a regular hair tool user and style your hair for work or weekends etc. then you’ll certainly get the use out of it which makes it worth it. And if you already have the original version you can buy the new attachments for $99 each. This one styler eliminates the need for multiple hair styling tools which will also save you space and money in the long run. The ability to do so many different hair styles with the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler is pretty impressive and as Dyson’s products are always high quality this is a tool you will use for years to come.
