Dyson Airwrap complete Multi styler review!
Hello friends! Today I want to do a Dyson Airwrap complete Multi styler review! Is it really worth the money?! Is it actually that good??? And how does it work on my short, fine and frizzy hair?!
Today I’m going to share my thoughts and show you how many hair looked after just a few minutes of using it with a few of my fave attachments!! Let’s chat!
My hair type; postpartum, fine, frizzy and short
Ok. So before we get started, I just want to share my hair type so you know what we are working with. I had a baby 20 months ago and at about 6 weeks postpartum I lost about 20-30% of my hair. I could see a LOT of my scalp and my entire fringe fell out. It was really hard on my self esteem and it’s taken a LONG time to grow back. I had fairly long hair before I had a baby, but because of the hair loss, I cut it fairly short so it looked fuller.
If you are like me and you were never blessed with model-esque full, thick hair, then hopefully this post will help you see what the Dyson Airwrap multi styler can do for you!
Dyson Airwrap complete Multi styler: regular or long?!
There are two sizes of Dyson Airdrop, but which is best for you? The regular Dyson Airwrap is most suited to shorter than chest length hair and the Dyson Airwrap multi Styler in Long is better suited for those with longer hair. Although if you are someone who changes their hair length frequently, then either will work well. I have the regular version for my short and fine hair.

The Dyson Airwrap multi styler – as a hairdryer – review for fine hair
Above you can see the results of the Dyson Airwrap as a hairdryer: It worked fast (2-3 minutes) to give me dry and relatively frizz free and tamed hair. Perfect for days at home or running errands locally.
For my short, fine hair, the Dyson Airwrap is a great hairdryer. It’s easy to use, fast, effective and leaves my hair looking a lot less frizzy than most hairdryers. It also gets the job done without extreme heat. My hairdryer blew up a few weeks ago, so I was planning on spending around £100 replacing it, so now that I have the Dyson Airwrap, I don’t need to spend that money and instead this will be my hairdryer and styler.
I can’t comment on how it dries thicker, longer hair; but my short, fine hair was dry in around 2-3 minutes and the heat was really comfortable. Less intense than my usual hairdryer and worked just as fast, if not faster. It was also really comfortable and easy to hold and angle at my hair too. All in all, really impressed and happy with it as a dryer!
Dyson Airwrap multi styler – Firm Smoothing Brush review
Above you can see the results of the Dyson Airwrap using the Firm Smoothing brush attachement – It worked fast (1-2 minutes) to give me neat, smooth, frizz free hair. It kept my natural wave but made me look a little more ‘pulled together’ and my hair a little sleeker. Great for popping in a couple of hair clips or a hairband and spending the day with my family.
Ok! Next up, I’ve been using the Airwrap with the Firm Smoothing Brush. I read that this attachment was great for fighting frizz and smoothing hair over. This is the attachment I go to when I am in a hurry and I want to look a bit tidier, but I don’t have time to look ‘done’. If this brush attachment was a make up look, this would be a swipe of lipstick and a touch of tinted brow gel. Fast, effortless and makes an impact!
This is the attachment I will probably find myself using the most. I have a toddler and the amount of time I have to get ready in the morning is minimal. This attachment smoothes over my hair, massively reduces frizz, generally tidies it up and just makes me look and feel a bit neater. In terms of time, it took me 1-2 minutes to achieve this finish, which I was really pleased with. I’m a big fan of a hair clip or hair band, so this is the perfect tool for tidying up with hair and adding in an accessory for a really quick and easy look.
Also, just a quick mention here, unlike most hair tools, there’s no waiting time whilst the tool heats up. Because it’s powered like a hairdryer, you literally switch it on and can get to work, so when I say it took me 1-2 minutes, that’s literally the time from picking it up and putting it down. Where as with an equivalent hair styler, like a hot brush, I would be waiting around for a few minutes for it to power up. It also feels less abrasive on your hair, so I would be confident using it as frequently as I need.
Dyson Airwrap multi styler – 40mm barrel attachment on short hair
Above you can see the results of the Dyson Airwrap using the 40mm Barrel attachement – It worked fast (3-5 minutes) to give me frizz-free, flyaway-free bouncing volume and beachy waves. I can’t stress how easy it was to do on both sides too!
The Dyson Airwrap comes with two barrels, the 30mm Barrel for tighter curls and the 40mm Barrel for bigger curls. Since I have shorter hair, the 40mm barrel gives more of a beachy wave with incredible volume and bounce.
I’m embarrassed to admit, I’ve always struggled SO hard with curling tongues on my ‘wrong’ side, I can’t tell you how many times I’ve burnt myself over the years and it gets to the point where I can’t face using styling tools because I don’t want to hurt myself.
I’m going to be 100% honest here, the Dyson Airwrap is really easy on both sides. Because this is a more causal look, I roughly sectioned my hair off and starting at the back I let the Airwrap take a section and work it’s magic. I worked my way forward and let the sections get marginally smaller as I did and boom… done! SO EASY!
I always curl away from my face, so to do the other side, you just turn the attachment at the top, so it rotates the opposite way and it’s done! (I inserted an image above of the top of the attachments so you can see how it twists)
I know some people will be able to create much more elaborate and impressive looks with their Dyson Airwraps, and that’s amazing! But I wanted to create a casual, cute look which I could easily recreate on a regular basis, which works with my schedule and lifestyle. Also, because it works like a hairdryer with hot hair, even if you do touch your skin with the tool, you don’t burn yourself…
Which leads me onto one of my favourite niche things about the Dyson Airwrap which will be HUGE for some people and meaningless to others. As I mentioned, I have a toddler and no childcare, so she’s always around and touching things. I love how curious she is, but when it comes to things like hair straighteners, I’m SO scared she’s going to touch them after I’ve used them and scald herself. Some hair tools get up to searing hot temperatures, where as the Dyson Airwrap is more like a hair dryer, it gets warm / hot, but it wouldn’t hurt her.
Will I get much use from the Dyson Airwrap multi styled?!
100% yes! It’s already my hairdryer and I’ve packed away all my other styling tools too. I never had enough time to use them and I’m always so nervous of Mary touching them whilst they are hot too. The Dyson Airwrap does everything, so why do I need anything else?
Is the Dyson Airwrap with the money?!
That’s a really tricky one as it is expensive. If you are like me and you need to buy a new hairdryer, you could use put money towards the Dyson Airwrap. Also, if you were to buy the Airwrap, you might find you no longer need any of you other tools and you could sell them on to help pay for it. I know I have a lot of redundant hair tools now which are worth a fair few hundred pounds,
Also, if you have a baby or toddler you will understand the fear of using hot styling tools and you can’t put a price on safety. Or if you live in fear of leaving your straighteners on whilst you are at work, again, it might give you peace of mind not to have to worry about it.
Another huge plus point for the Dyson Airwrap is that it’s SO much more gentle on your hair than any other styling tool I’ve ever used, so you might find your hair is happier and healthier in general, meaning you can spend less on trips to the salon and conditioning masks too.
For sufferers of chronic pain or carpal tunnel syndrome, you might find the Airwrap a lot more comfortable than other styling products, and it might be worth the money to you for that reason too.
Like anything, I guess it’s worth it, if it’s worth it to you! If you will use it a lot and you love the results and you can afford it, great! But if you are just curious about it and then it will sit in a cupboard along with a face steamer you bought in 1996 and used twice, then don’t buy it!
That being said, I absolutely love mine! The speed, the ease, the effortless results and the safety aspect too. I love it! Speaking of which, message me if you want a beach waver, I’ve got one going spare!!
