Dyson’s new­est de­vice is de­signed to re­place ev­ery hair-care tool on your van­ity

Dyson first dis­rupted the hair-care game in 2016, when it en­tered the beauty mar­ket with a tech­ni­cally savvy and am­bi­tiously priced blow dryer. Now, it’s tak­ing on ev­ery other coif ap­pa­ra­tus un­der your sink with its new Air­wrap styler, a kit that claims to stream­line all of your styling tools into one sleek de­vice that can curl, wave, smooth and dry hair.

To mas­ter th­ese mul­ti­ple feats, Dyson has tapped its air­flow ex­per­tise to har­ness the Coanda ef­fect, whereby a high-speed jet of air flows across a sur­face and, due to dif­fer­ences in pres­sure, at­taches it­self. In the case of Dyson’s Air­wrap, this tech­nol­ogy at­tracts sec- tions of hair to a bar­rel, mak­ing the process of curl­ing one’s hair a cinch for even the least dex­ter­ous among us.

It’s this ease of use that makes it ideal for any­one short on time or pa­tience, says hair­styl­ist Matthew Collins. “Say if you’ve got to go out and your hair looks like a mess, you can just throw it in five times in cer­tain spots and at least your ends will be smoother. It’ll have a lit­tle more of a done look, which is pretty amaz­ing,” he says. “No other tool in the world will give you the op­tion to be that lazy.”
