Dyson Airwrap Attachments Guide
Hello friends! I recently got the Dyson Airwrap and I am OBSESSED!!!!! Today I thought it would be fun to do a Dyson Airwrap Attachments Guide, so you know exactly what all the attachments do and how to use them. Let’s chat!
Dyson Airwrap long v short
There are two versions of the Dyson Airwrap, the long and the short version. With the original version of the Dyson airwrap you had to buy the longer barrels separately, where as now you can just opt to buy the long version rather than than the regular version. Personally I have the regular / shorter version, because I have shorter hair. Dyson recommend if you have shorter than chest-length hair to go for the regular version and longer than chest length hair to go for the long version.
I have heard people say the long version is better, especially for thicker hair, however, I don’t have thick hair and I was worried that the extra length might make it harder to control.
The Dyson airwrap attachments guide
Ok! It’s time to get into the dyson airwrap attachments! This hair tool comes with six attachments which do everything from dying, smoothing and styling. All of which are east to use if you are left or right handed, and can be ‘reversed’ to make the ‘other’ side easy.
Coanda Smoothing Dryer
This handy attachment takes you hair wet to damp, so it’s ready to style with one of the other attachments. Or you could take it from wet to dry if you simply want to dry your hair and get on with your day. It also as a really handy smoothing function so it smooths down flyaway hairs.
My hairdryer broke a few weeks ago so I was planning on spending around £100 buying a new hairdryer, but I’ve found this so effective, I won’t be buying a new hairdryer now!
40mm Airwrap™ Barrel
This is my favourite attachment for creating beautiful large barrel curls. It’s stunning on long hair and on shorter hair like mine it gives beautiful beachy waves with a touch of a curl in places.
It’s really quick and easy to use as you can pick up large chunks of hair at a time. It also gives incredible volume.
30mm Airwrap™ Barrel
A great attachment for creating smaller, tighter curls. Again, it’s nice and easy to use, but it does take a little longer than the 40mm barrels as you need to do smaller sections.
Round volumising brush
The round volumising brush is perfect for creating a classic ‘blow out’ look. It gives great volume and a cute ‘kick out’ at the ends. I tend to use the 40mm Airwrap™ Barrel in preference to the round volumising brush, but that’s just my personal fave. I have really fine and thin hair, so I tend to avoid these kind of bristle brushes as they can make my hair a bit frizzier and a bit more flyaway. Plus I adore the 40mm Airwrap™ Barrel, so that’s my go-to!
Soft smoothing brush
The Soft smoothing brush and the Firm smoothing brush are fairly similar. Both can be used to straighten or ‘tidy up’ hair, whilst also detangling it. I think if you have curlier hair you might find the soft smoothing brush better for really grabbing your curls and smoothing them out. But it’s really just personal preference.
Firm smoothing brush
I don’t know why, but I have been gravitating to this brush a little more than the soft smoothing brush. Maybe because this one reminds me of the ghd glide brush which I used to use a lot. This brush smoothes out my hair and tidies it up, without loosing all its natural wave, where as the softer brush might straighten it a bit better.
Advantages of the Dyson Airwrap multi styler
I love the Dyson Airwrap multi styler as it does everything I want; takes frizz & flyaway hairs, straightens, curls and dries. All in one handy machine!
Whilst the Dyson Airwrap presentation box is fairly bulky, it’s much smaller and more compact than having the equivalent separate tools. I used to use a beach waver, hot brush, straighteners and a hair dryer and now I’ve tidied them all away and I only use the airwrap instead.
The Dyson Airwrap uses heat to style your hair, but it doesn’t use the same intense heat as curling tongues or hair straighteners do. Which means if you catch your skin your won’t burn yourself. Perfect if you are clumsy, in a hurry or have a toddler roaming around.
Also, because it doesn’t use hot plates, you don’t have to wait for the tool to heat up before you use it. It doesn’t save much time. But it does shave a few minutes off your styling time, which I appreciate!
the fact that I’ve even written a Dyson airwrap attachment guide shows how much the airwrap does! It really is a one-stop shop that does it all! And it’s easy! Even if you are bad at doing your ‘other’ side, like me!
Disadvantages of the Dyson Airwrap
Honestly. It’s the price. All day long. The price is high and there’s no getting away from it! However, if you buy the airwrap, it does the same as about 4 other tools (hairdryer, hot brush, curler, straightener), so when you factor in how much it costs to buy each one of those individually it probably adds up to the same. As well as saving your hair from all the extreme heat damage of hot plates too.
There we have it! The Dyson airwrap attachment guide. I hope it’s of help and interest! Thank you so much for reading! Let me know if you have any questions. This post includes affiliate links.
