How to Use the Dyson Airwrap?

Firstly, always start by drying your hair so it’s 80% dry. You can either use the pre-styling drying attachment which comes with the Airwrap, or alternatively, use the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer to transform your hair from wet to damp.

The Dyson Airwrap comes with several different attachments so you can effortlessly achieve a variety of looks, just by using one tool.

To curl your hair using the Dyson Airwrap, use either the 30mm curling barrel attachments for tighter curls or the 40mm attachments for a looser wave. Hold the hair tool vertically and introduce the ends of a small section of hair, about 5cm in width, to the barrel allowing the air from the Aiwrap to take the hair and curl it around the barrel. Move the curling barrel towards the root of your hair and then hold for between 5 and 10 seconds. Lock the look in place with the cool shot button and then slide down the barrel to release the curl.

How to Straighten Hair with the Dyson Aiwrap

If you want to create a smooth and sleek hairstyle using the Dyson Hairwrap, there are three attachments available.
