Rated 4.4 out of 5 stars
Most Helpful Positive Review Jack of all trades!
This device is the complete package. Dyson has truly outdone itself.
Here is what you get:
-Pre styling dryer or basically a mini supersonic hairdryer attachment
-1.6" Airwrap barrel x 2
-1.2" Airwrap barrel x2
-Firm smoothing brush head
-Soft smoothing brush head
-Round Volumizing Brush head
-A carrying case
This device is truly a Jack of all trades. Simply pop on each of the included attachments to either blow dry, curl, straighten or refresh your style the next day.
As someone that already owns and loves the supersonic hairdryer I thought there was no way the mini supersonic attachment could compete...boy was I wrong! I rough dried my hair in about 2 or 3 minutes.
After drying my hair about 70% of the way I wanted to give the round brush attachment a try. My hair is just above my shoulders, color treated and has a wave to it that is very frizzy and hard to manage. I've always been in awe of those that can do salon perfect blowouts at home. I, for whatever reason, cannot easily manage a brush and blow dryer at the same time. You need tension and the right amount of heat to smooth the hair and give it that volume. Enter the round volumizing brush attachment. Now I can easily do a salon style blowout at home with minimal effort. The round brush is grippy and really holds the hair in place while you create volume. I was so impressed how easy and fast it dried my hair without making it feel like straw. The end result was shiny, near salon quality blowout in a short period of time! So impressed.
The flat brush heads are great for straightening out or calming frizz. There is a firm and soft brush which each serve their own purpose. I haven't used these as much yet because the curling attachments are so fun to use! The firm brush head will give you more tension to straighten and smooth out your hair. Whereas the soft one will tame your hair but not necessarily straighten it all the way.
The real star of this device, and that's saying a lot, are the curling attachments. This is where the whole airwrap name comes into play. When I saw the curling attachments I was initially confused--there is no clamp or way to hold the hair to the attachment during styling...or so I thought. The curling attachments are like magic. Each size, large or small, comes with two attachments with arrows denoting which way it will wrap the hair--either curling it away or towards your face. You simply grab about an inch section of slightly damp hair hold the curling attachment towards the bottom of your hair and the airwrap magic does the rest. It will wrap, not suck, your hair around the curling attachment like magic. Hold it there for about 10-15 seconds and follow up with a cool shot of air to lock in your style and you either have a loser or tighter curl depending on the size of the attachment you used. I've seen other companies use a chambered device were you insert your hair to achieve a curl, which admittedly always scared me. I was worried it would burn or tangle my hair---not the case with the airwrap curling attachments. They do take a moment to get used to but once you figure them out you'll want to toss your curling iron!
I was able to blow dry and style my hair from start to finish in under 25 minutes. Typically I'd have to blow dry, then flat iron to get rid of any frizz that remained and then either add some waves with my flat iron or reach for my curling iron...which would take at least 35 to 40 minutes... and I still wouldn't get the body and bounce that the airwrap achieved! I also feel like this product is less damaging to your hair because it doesn't get as hot as my flat iron or curling iron.
The carrying case is awesome. My Dyson supersonic came with a pink carrying case and it's like tetris getting it back into the case, not so with the airwrap's case. There is plenty of room for each attachment and the case is high quality and sturdy.
Dyson has outdone itself!
Most Helpful Critical Review Returning Did Not Perform Well - Too Much Heat
I was on the fence between this product and the Dyson dryer, which my stylist uses on me and absolutely loves. Every time she uses the dryer on my hair it is fantastic. I recently had my hair done and asked the stylists in the salon their thoughts on the Airwrap vs. the Dyson Dryer as a purchase. They all agreed the Airwrap was difficult to use on clients and much prefer the dryer & they are professionals. So, being the curious person I am, I decided to inquire about it in-store and tried it anyway (against the advice of my stylist and others in my salon and my own better judgment). I disliked having to switch the barrels back and forth to keep my hair from drying too much on one side while I worked the other (work each side evenly in sections). The barrels were pretty hot to the touch even after the cold shot per instructions, the hair already worked was getting grabbed as I went along which made it a bit more frustrating. I tried the brushes and they have no grip for styling which made it difficult to get any volume with either paddle brush or the round brush. I don't see the dryer itself as a stand-alone tool since it is not made to style the hair alone. I don't think the full-blown set is worth the money and it is not that much more expensive than the others. For the money, I will return this and purchase the dryer and will get a lot more use out of it. The heat exposure from the tools is far too much for my hair and is higher than I would ordinarily get from my other high-end dryer that works my hair very quickly with a brush and a few quick hits with a flat iron and I am done (total normal styling time 12 min) Styling time with the AirWrap 45+ minutes. I have shoulder-length hair that is fine in texture but I have plenty of it. My hair curls very easily and has never had an issue holding curls or staying straight. Perhaps someone with another hair type that is looking for a different use would like a scaled down version of this, but it's not for me

Works so well for blowing your hair straight. My hair is long which makes the curling barrels difficult to use. I think shoulder length hair would be easier for the barrels.

Love this made me a professional hair dresser over night lol you wont regret this purchase!!!
Kimmie from TX
I wish I had gotten this sooner. I'm sure, just like everyone else, I was hesitant to get this because of the price. The whole gadget has saved my sanity and time.
I get discouraged getting ready in the morning because it takes so long to get my hair curled. So, I usually just leave it straight or put it in a pony tail. The airwrap is quick and easy. I use the smaller size because I have long hair and they weigh down as the day goes on. It takes me 10 minutes to curl my whole hair in the morning. It literally saves my sanity.
In the evening, after I wash my hair, it doesn't take long at all to get them dried. It feels light and airy. I can chill on my bed without feeling like my pillow is damp.
These tools are just so worth it!
Buy it. Stop considering it. You will love it.
Jackie from Sarasota, FL
I usually shower at night and let my hair mostly air dry and then I finish drying it with the large brush and rounded brush heads. It takes just a few minutes. In the morning I use the curling attachments to add volume and bounce (if I am feeling it). Best hair I have ever had!!
Super cool hair styler I've ever had!
Ksenija from Charlotte
Luxury quality. Easy to use. Love it to touch)). Always perfect result 🥰
Buy this item!!!

This is best system I've ever found. Quick and easy to use. Get that just back from the salon look every day. So worth the money.
Why did I wait so long...
Palm City Lady from FL
I have been debating the purchase for some time. Yes, it is expensive. So I waited for the 20% off and purchased. I do not regret the purchase. It has exceeded my expectations. Wish I had purchased sooner.
MP from Portland Oregon
This really helped me manage my frizzy long thick hair. I can blow dry my hair and style it at the same time. Sometimes it's times consuming but I love knowing that it's so much healthier for my hair than any other hair tool that I have.
Just BUY IT ALREADY!!
Fitzcharn from Hayward, CA
If you are like me, you stalk this every chance you get and read reviews, but never get the balls to spend that much money on a styling tool. Well, take it from me....who's been "that girl", bite the bullet and just BUY IT ALREADY!!! I finally justified spending the money on myself and I'm not AT ALL disappointed, nor do I regret the purchase! This thing is a dream and is so easy to use. I have a short lob, with very fine thin hair and as I get older my hair is thinning. Add a few medical issues into the mix and now my hair falls out even easier. I've stopped using the round, close bristle blow out brushes and it has helped to MANEtain (lol) more hair. Because of this reason, I was always reluctant to get a styler with a built in brush, as I was afraid it would just rip out more hair. The Dyson styler doesn't do that AT ALL!! (A huge relief!) There is a learning curve for using the curling tool (cuz it's bizarre) but it's easy to adjust to it, plus it really does works! I will say it doesn't seem to "lock" in the curl like a regular iron, but then again I have hard to curl hair, so I'm used to that. It still makes beautiful curls easily. I really love everything about this product, and it exceeded all my expectations. I took a star off ONLY because of petty complaints - I have a very small bathroom with limited space and this kit is very bulky and cumbersome, which makes it a bit inconvenient to store and use. Also I wish they offered some sort of gripping material on the handle. When using the curling attachment, I tend to get hot which makes my hands get clammy & sweaty and all though the unit is slim, lightweight and easy to hold, it does get a little slippery if your hands get a bit sweaty. See? Petty complaints, but worth mentioning. I love this kit so much that I'll be incorporating or designating a drawer in the nw vanity for this unit when we do our bathroom remodel in a few months! That will eliminate one of my complaints! HA!
Didn't see the hype
Taryn from Fort Lauderdale, FL
I have frizz prone hair, especially living in FL. After watching tutorials on Youtube, I couldn't quite get the hang of the curling attachments after multiple tries. My hair had a ton of volume, but would look even frizzier than ever! I did like the blow dry attachment and brush, but the price isn't worth keeping just for 2 of the 4 attachments. I ended up returning it and am going to look to purchase the Dry Bar blow dry brush instead.
Emmc910 from Orlando, Florida
It's completely worth it! Amazing!
Not worth it
Mel B from Georgia
I have been wanting this for years however was ultimately underwhelmed. Its not difficult to use but for me, its not an efficient tool since I have to stop several times to switch out the attachments. It is certainly not worth the cost. I will be returning.
This is by far your best bang for your buck
LisaK from Pasadena,TX
The curler is so easy to use and the curls are mostly still there in the morning!
OMG I love this product so much.
T from Southwest
I love this styler so much. I am someone who never figured out how to round brush, use a curling iron, or ever feel like I could style my hair. The Dyson Airwrap changed that completely. There is a learning curve. I use the barrel curler and the round brush most often. The flat brush feels like a straightener and I like more volume to my hair than what it provides.
I have volume!
HHC from Portland, ME
Best investment for my fine hair! I get a ton of volume even using the flat paddle type brush. Frizziness is at a minimum. I want to give it five stars but changing the air wrap attachments is a little time consuming going from one side of your head to another. You have to do one complete side first. Overall super happy with it and well worth the price!
This product is fantastic !!!
Bogo130 from Knightdale, NC
This product is great for me. I have thinning hair and was worried about the high heat on all the other hair utensils (and there is plenty) and this does the job without all the heat. It takes practice but being stuck at home at this time, there is plenty of time to practice. My hair is about shoulder length and it can be straight or curly. This is perfect for either. The curl lasts too !
G from PA
I only tried it fairly quickly as a test. It is very easy to use and does curl quickly (going by instructions). Haven't tried the other pieces yet. Will write another one once i have used all parts.
All the hype is real...pricey but such a great versatile too
Momma from Albuquerque
Had to get used to styling while hair is still pretty wet
Love love love
Jess from Michigan
I've wanted this for so long and finally was able to snag it on sale! With so many attachments there are so many ways to use it. I'm super impressed by the blow dryer alone. I have a lot of hair and it takes forever to dry. This is super powerful and doesn't seem to use as much heat as ones I have used in the past. So my hair gets dried super quick and with less damage. The barrels are definitely my favorite though!
Love my New Dyson!
Johna from AL
I Love Love Love this product. It is a little Expensive but I do not regret my purchase. I have also purchased one for my daughter.
I would buy this again!
Chrissygirl from Staten Island, NY
To dry and curl your hair all in one. Awesome product! My daughter loves her birthday gift!!
No it's to pricey
Hannah from Michigan
This product works well but the price is just to high
Deedee from Iowa
Really great for my hair type. Quicker than normal hair dryer. Feels like less damaging too.
A little learning curve.

It has taken a couple of tries, but I'm loving it!
My hair feels and looks much better already.
Salon blow out at home

I love the multiple attachments, especially the round brush. This hairstyling tool is lightweight and easy to use to style your own hair at home, with salon perfect results.
