THE BIG BLOWOUT

Fancy cut­ting down on sa­lon time? Dyson’s Su­per­sonic Hair Dryer has an ac­tual golden touch that will give you your best blow dry ever

Emirates Woman - - Life - Competition -

The orig­i­nal Dyson Su­per­sonic Hair Dryer blew us out the wa­ter with its rev­o­lu­tion­ary tech­nol­ogy two years ago. We can never look at ba­sic hair dry­ers again (sorry ho­tel hair dry­ers). But now, with the launch of the 23.75 karat gold edi­tion, we are even more tempted to fork out to get our hands on one. And be­ing that we are in the Mid­dle East, we’re only yield­ing to our nat­u­ral gold ten­den­cies – or so we tell our­selves!

One lucky reader though, will get the chance to win and ex­pe­ri­ence the bril­liance that is a Dyson Su­per­sonic Hair Dryer. So why gold? “Gold is one of the most re­silient ma­te­ri­als in the world and has been used in de­sign, sculp­ture and ar­chi­tec­ture for cen­turies. As an el­e­ment, I’m fas­ci­nated by its prop­er­ties,” says Sir James Dyson.

Mo­tor en­abled: the small but pow­er­ful Dyson dig­i­tal mo­tor V9 sits in the han­dle, not the head, mak­ing it much more er­gonomic and com­fort­able to hold. Its 13-blade im­peller spins at up to 110,000rpm, gen­er­at­ing 3.5kPa of pres­sure and pro­pel­ling 13 litres of air up to the am­pli­fier every sec­ond.

Fast and fo­cused: with the mo­tor in the han­dle, there’s space in the head for Air Mul­ti­plier tech­nol­ogy, the same tech­nol­ogy used in Dyson’s pu­ri­fy­ing fans and hu­mid­i­fiers. The jet of air that ex­its the loop cre­ates an area of low pres­sure, which draws in sur­round­ing air through in­duce­ment and en­train­ment. It pro­duces a high-pres­sure, high-ve­loc­ity jet of air for fast dry­ing and styling.

Helps pro­tect nat­u­ral shine: a glass bead ther­mis­tor and mi­cro­pro­ces­sor care­fully con­trols a dou­ble-stacked heat­ing el­e­ment. The exit air tem­per­a­ture is mea­sured 20 times per sec­ond, help­ing to pro­tect hair.

Set­tings and at­tach­ments: there are four heat set­tings, in­clud­ing a cool shot and ‘al­ways cool’ op­tion, and three air­flow set­tings. Dyson en­gi­neers have de­signed three mag­netic at­tach­ments – a styling con­cen­tra­tor, smooth­ing noz­zle and dif­fuser – al­low­ing peo­ple with dif­fer­ent hair types to achieve a range of styles. The Dyson Su­per­sonic Hair Dryer is is avail­able in the UAE at the Dyson Demo Store and ex­clu­sively at Sephora
