Options

The hair dryer re-thought. Helps prevent extreme heat damage to protect natural shine. Air temperature is measured 20 times every second, keeping the temperature under control. Drying shouldn't take forever. For fast drying you need controlled, high velocity airflow.

Only the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer comes with magnetic attachments - so you can adjust quickly and easily. Dyson smoothing nozzle dries hair gently using smooth, wide air, allowing you to dry and style at the same time. Dyson styling concentrator - high-velocity, focused air that lets you style one section at a time - without worrying about disturbing the rest. Dyson diffuser is engineered to disperse air evenly around each of your ringlets. Simulates natural drying to help reduce frizz and improve definition.

With heat shield technology, the surfaces of the attachments stay cool. Dyson has turned convention on its head and put the motor in the handle,completely rebalancing the dryer's weight and shape. The powerful motor is tuned to produce one inaudible frequency, and it's enveloped by a vibration reduction system. 3 precise speed settings: fast drying, regular drying, and styling.

Key Features:
  • Prevents extreme heat damage
  • Ultra-fast drying
  • Magnetic attachments
  • Dyson smoothing nozzle
  • Dyson styling concentrator
  • Dyson diffuser
  • Cool to touch
  • Lightweight and balanced
  • Acoustically tuned
  • 3 precise speed settings



Smoothing nozzle - Dry and style at the same time for sleek finish. Pre-styling, this can be used to "rough" dry the hair. Attach the nozzle vertically. This will move your hair gently from side-to-side, and can help to lift it. To finish your style, rotate the nozzle to point air flow down the hair shaft, using your fingers or a brush to guide it. You may want to switch to a lower heat setting to avoid over-drying the hair.

Styling concentrator - Airflow precisely where you need it. With the Dyson Styling concentrator, you can shape your hair one section at a time - without worrying about disturbing the rest. Rotate the styling concentrator to match the direction you're styling in. Use a round brush to guide your hair and create your style.

Diffuser - Natural drying, accelerated. Cup your hair in the diffuser, starting at the tips. Very gently push the hair upwards. The trick is to move your natural curls as little as possible, so try not to brush or touch your hair and stick to the lowest airflow setting.

    Comments about Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer:

    Wow, this thing gets hot! Even on its lowest setting, it is scalp-scorchingly hot. I bought it because I thought it would be better for diffusing than long-nozzle dryers that have only two heat settings, or short-nozzle dryers that suck my hair into the fan. What I like about the Dyson Supersonic: It's compact so I don't have to hold my arm extended while drying my hair. Yet the fan in the handle doesn't suck hair in. The magnetic attachments are smart. It feels solid and good quality. It (in theory) has three heat settings--four if you include the cold shot.

    But surprisingly since Dyson emphasizes this dryer's precise heat control, this is exactly where it fails. Even on the lowest heat, it gets so hot it would damage my hair and burn my scalp if I didn't push the cold shot button every few seconds. This is really inconvenient and disappointing, since the low heat control for diffusing was a big reason I bought this dryer.

    Other inconveniences:

    1) The cord is massive. Maybe this is needed because the dryer draws a lot of power. But it destroys any portability advantage from making the dryer itself compact. Since it gets far too hot anyway the better choice would have been to lower the wattage and use a lighter cord.

    2) The buttons should have been placed on the opposite side of the handle, where your fingertips sit when you hold the dryer.

    3) Your hand partly blocks the fan if you're not careful. Maybe this could have been prevented with a handle an inch longer?

    4) The diffuser is so-so. The Solano diffuser's deeper bowl and longer fingers produce better waves and less frizz.

    I hate to leave a bad review, since I like Dyson's course of trying to build well-designed, quality products. Hopefully they'll address these issues in the next version.

          This is by far the best hair dryer I've ever owned. I have thick frizzy hair, but by using this dryer you would never know I had a problem with frizzies! I was spending ~$180.00/yr on products to make my hair smooth and to get rid of the frizz. Now, thanks to Dyson my hair has never felt or looked better!! I highly recommend this dryer, you won't regret it!! Thanks Dyson!!

          Comments about Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer:

          I have the thickest, long, red curly hair. It has always taken me at least 25 mins to diffuse it dry. I decided to give this a try, and if it was not absolutely amazing, I would take it back. This thing is amazing. My dry time is around 5 minutes now and I have not experienced any drying or breakage like other reviews have mentioned. It is very light and much quieter than the other hairdryers I have used. Note, I have only used it with the diffuser attachment. I use the first heat setting and the 2nd power setting and have had the most luck with that. I would recommend trying it to make your own opinion because I was almost swayed not to buy it reading the reviews. Great product with great results for my hair!

              It's weight is good. I love the magnetic attachments. I also love where the ir intake is (bottom of handle). And a motor that's separated. The only negative is its price. I turn it off and on about 20 times each time I dry my air. I hope the switch is robust.

                  Comments about Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer:

                  I had to return my first one as it stopped working on Day 2. The system shorted out, and I made an exchange at Sephora where I purchased it. That is the only reason I gave 4 stars rather than 5. Other than that, the machine is great. Quieter than a standard blowdryer, extremely powerful air flow and ergonomic handle. In fact, the non slip mat that is provided actually is needed - if you set the blowdryer down while it's on full force, it'll move due to the air flow. I've also had to move to a different spot while blowdrying because it was blowing small items off the shelves! I do wish that the cord was not quite as large and cumbersome, but this only is an issue when I'm trying to travel with it - the cord does take up a bit of space. Overall, really great purchase, and I'm very happy with it.

                                    Does dyson make a case for this drier or can you recommend a type of case/travel bag for it? I will be purchasing this coming week but I find that for such a high priced product it would make sense that the manufacturer would think ahead as far as to how to protect the blow drier for travel/storage.

                                      The size of the Dyson Supersonic makes traveling with it very appealing. However, if you're traveling abroad, it's important to know that the Dyson Supersonic™ has been specifically designed for use in the country of origin. Voltage ratings are on the product, and should be followed. The Dyson Supersonic™ is not a universal product, so it should only be used in the country for which it is engineered.

                                    I have been using the Dyson ionic blow dryer on my naturally curly hair for several months now and love it! Only problem is now my natural curl is gone. My hair is no longer curly. Even if I use the diffuser, it stays straight! How do I get my curls back?

                                      Dyson Supersonic is made for all hair types. To get your desired look, choose another heat setting or use a different product before you style your hair.

                                    I live in Arizona and have thick curly hair. I currently use the Jose Eber infrared dryer. It has cut my drying time down but am soaked with sweat and heats up the entire room. Does your dryer put out a lot of heat?

                                      Dyson Supersonic dries the hair with a combination of high velocity airflow with intelligent heat control to both dry the hair quickly and help prevent extreme heat damage. The Dyson Supersonic hair dryer also has four precise heat settings so you can find the right setting for your hair and needs. It includes the cool shot as well.
