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
Reviewed by 924 customers Fast styling, but lacking shine and moisture
Cate from MN
I love the styler but need to find products to use with it to help with moisture and shine. It dries out my hair too much with the current products I use. Those products worked great with a regular blow dryer or my Revlon Styler.
The Best Hair Dryer/Styler Ever!
JeansLover from SC
I have never been able to do a good job of styling my hair, but I can get my frizzy hair smooth with this dryer. Watch the videos- they are not long and they really show you how to use the different tools. I cannot say enough good things about this dryer. It is expensive, but it is definitely worth it to me. For the first time I actually want to style my hair- rather than dreading it.
Worth the investment
Becky from Arizona
I really questioned buying this based on the price. Then thought How long Ive had my blow dryer and other Dyson products and decided to do it. I had $130.00 worth of points so I used those toward the purchase price, and got free shipping.
I am happy I did. My hair is somewhat fine and silver. It generally doesn't hold a style more than overnight. Not with this. I've tried each of the attachments and they all do the job, whether I want it curled, straight blow dry or need volume, this does it. My hair has never looked so good. I'm thinking it's a good investment in me.
LT from Hemet, California
I love how my hair feels when I'm done. It's like I went to the salon and got a blow out.
Alyssa from Indiana
Only buy this if you're ready to fall in love with your hair. I have very fine hair, and lots of it, with some natural wave, and it's taken me 29 years to finally get my hair to a point that I can say I love it. I thought air-dried was my style, then front bangs, then side bangs, then a pixie cut, then a little depression, and finally I started to take better care of it and grow it out. I got really good at curling my hair with the flat iron and would get regular trims because the heat and pressure were so damaging to the ends. I got my first balayage this year and tried to continue styling it the same way, but noticed the heat was just breaking off the ends that had been lightened. My hairdresser recommended experimenting with ways to style my hair without heat. I decided to splurge on the dyson airwrap styler set with the coupon available during the gorgeous hair event and I could just cry I'm so happy. My hair is so soft and voluminous from the start of the day to the end, silky smooth and the ends are protected without the harsh heat and pressure. I love the different attachments and the travel case is super convenient. The price tag seems outrageous, but hair is an investment and this purchase has been worth every penny.
I wanted to love it.
Cruzgirl from Rockford, il
I wanted to love this. Definitly a learning curve to use. Watched many YouTube videos. Still having trouble getting beach waves and not big curls. Hair did not hold curl all day as with the curling iron.
Will keep tryin for a few more weeks, but may end up returning it, especially at that price.
absolutely love it!

Dries and sets hair in minutes.
Hands down some of the best money I have spent...
STRFKR76 from Charleston, SC
I have the Dyson hair dryer and was so impressed with it's performance that I was super intrigued when I saw this Airwrap Volume styler. However, Dyson isn't something you just go buying multiple products of...they pricey! But I took advantage of a 20% coupon and treated myself and boy am I so glad I did! This system is PERFECT for thin hair craving volume. It is one device that does it all. While I do love my hair dryer I will probably re-sell it on FB Market Place, as this product is all I really need. Having said that I do see somewhat of a small need to hang on to my curling iron, but that may change over time. My next Dyson purchase will be their stock.
Ang from Indiana
I bought this after using the dyson blow dryer for almost two years. I LOVED the blow dryer. I got this and used it once and returned it. While I did like the blow drying feature, i hated the way the curls looked and they fell out almost immediately. If I didn't have the blow dryer already I probably would have kept it but that seemed like the only feature of it that worked well. Disappointed overall sadly.
Wasn't sure that it would be love, but it was!!
Amber A from Tennessee
I didn't want to love it & especially for the price & the varied reviews. I was ready to return it if I didn't love it....but one use & I loved it! It was so much easier to use than the videos showed & I didn't think it could improve much on my already curly hair but it gave wide & voluminous curls that blended great with my natural curls. I felt like my hair was just out of a salon...but I did it! It dried my hair as it styled, a bit longer than just drying but well worth the bit of extra time. It was definitely worth the try.
don't waste your money
cheryl from pa
does not work on my fine hair. unfortunately i will be returning.
Top notch hair groomer
Teri from Silverdale
Like results - hair feels smooth & not dry. More volume then other hair brush driers. Pricey but have wanted one since hair stylists at Ulta have them. Sale plus rewards points made it a little more affordable.
My new tool of worship
Ari from Philly
I bought this after MUCH contemplation due to a 20% coupon. Being mixed (Black & Puerto Rican) I didn't have much hope but did a lot of research on reviews from other people of color who used this. Honestly, I expected it to bomb and was anticipating on returning it to happily receive a large refund because this is quite the investment but boy was I wrong.
This is LOVE. My hair is shiny, soft, stretched and undamaged. the controlled heat is amazing. No snags. No hot spots. No burning smell. Just pure perfection and I'm done within 10 minutes despite my thick mane. My wrist was broken in a car accident and this is also extremely lightweight so my hand and wrist aren't fatiuged and sore afterward. Best purchase ever! Consider me apart of the Dyson cult as an avid follower.
Just get it.
Best money I ever spent!
Mary K from Chicago, IL
This is probably the best hair styler I have ever bought. So easy to use, it really does the work for you. I can dry and style my hair in less than 15 min and look like I had a get blowout. I know it's pricey but it so worth it!!
A great product
Keri from Lake Mary, FL
It took some time getting use to using the product and switching the barrels to curl in the direction you need or want it to.
Lauren R from New Jersey
The Dyson Airwrap is a game changer! Seriously! I can dry & style my hair in less than 10 minutes and it looks like my stylist did it. I'm so glad I took the plunge and ordered it. My hair is naturally frizzy, but not with the airwrap system. I don't even need to use any products. I've used it twice and already received a compliment on my hair (and it was the following day so the curls stayed!). What a great concept. If you're on the fence order it! You'll be glad you did!
Obsessed. All your tools in 1
Lauren from Minneapolis, MN
I love that this product can replace a straightener, blow dryer and curlers. The brush attachment straightens and smooths my hair achieving the perfect blowout and is lighter and quieter than the bulky blow out brushes. The curling mechanism takes time to learn but once you're comfortable with it and using it properly (wet hair & cool shot) the curls last really well.
Wow!!!! It really works!!!!!
Linny from Pittsburgh, PA
Oh. My. Gosh. This thing is amazing! I have to admit, I wanted this for a while, but was afraid to get it for fear that it would be a let down or a waste of money. When it came I looked at it for a few days before I opened it (it was intimidating). I decided to watch videos on how to use it before I even opened it. This is a must, I was able to achieve perfect results the first time! My curls stayed like new for 3.5 days, I hated to wash my hair! I am over the moon with this purchase, it was worth every penny. I only wish I would have bought it sooner.
Not for me
ag318 from Alt, ga
I am in no way an expert at styling my hair. I have hair past my shoulders that has a wave to it. I usually wash and air dry or use my dyson dryer and then if time allows, use my hair straightener. I have been eyeing this product since owning my dyson hair dryer. Finally, after getting a 20% coupon that worked on this I ordered it. I've used it 3 times— once with the round brush and then twice with the larger barrels. It took me almost two hours to do my hair the first time. The second time over an hour. I used different brands of hairspray and mousse both times. Sadly the curls just wouldn't hold. I wasn't expecting super curly hair, but what I got for the amount of time it took me was ridiculous. It didn't even look like I had done my hair. It was just slightly wavy at best. I'm not sure why all the 5 stars— maybe they just like the dryer part or the brushes— because at this price point I expected more than just a dryer. This will be going back. Two stars because the round brush did make my hair have more volume and felt really soft afterwards.

The body and curl
Great styling tool
Very Happy from Los Angeles area
I find the airwrap is easy to use. It gives my hair longlasting curls in a much shorter time than using my dryer, brush and then curlers. I have fine, very straight hair. I use a quick spray at the ends of each section of hair with a thermal protection spray. I've only used the 1.2 inch wands. I will experiment more with the other tools as I become more proficient but I am happy to say it has been a great purchase so far.
I was so excited to try this!
LongFlatHair from Pennsylvania
Really wanted this to work for me. I tried it a couple times but definitely was disappointed. Curls didn't last and now I have a lot more short hairs sticking out from breakage.
Not too user friendly!
Debbie from undisclosed
I was so excited to receive my Dyson Airwrap. Let me start by saying I am a retired Cosmetologist. This inventive new styling tool is NOT easy to handle. The barrel gets much too hot. I actually burned my finger tips. Ouch! I have a short haircut and the attachments, brush, wrapping barrels etc are too large. I gave 3 stars because I do enjoy the dryer part, quick and pretty quiet. The leather box is quite impressive but not functional for daily use and too heavy to travel with. Instructions are sketchy and geared for longer hair than mine. If possible I will return it. Much to expensive for a hairdryer! I did want to LOVE it! No can do. Sorry.
Because Ladies you're worth it!
CL from Lehigh valley
So I knew I wanted this tool when I first heard about it, because frankly nothing Dyson has done is underwhelming in my experience. And I thought I can't even get a style at a salon with the Covid restrictions, so I splurged which was justifiable with the coupon . It's absolutely amazing, it's lightweight which is important for someone with carpal and cubital tunnel. I've only used it once, still haven't quite got down my technique, but my hair still looks and feels amazing! I can only imagine how much better it will look when I've got my technique better. It's well worth it, and so are you
Cary68 from Franklin, TN
I have been wanting to buy a Dyson for a couple of years but the price deterred me. It went on sale and I bought it. I can't believe how amazing my hair looks. It dries it quickly and leaves it frizz free. My hair is thin and frizzy. Before, I would blow dry my hair and then use a curling iron to attempt loose curls. The curls would fall apart after a couple of hours even after putting on a ton of hair spray: i used the Dyson small curling barrel. It was a little tricky to use. I need to practice the placement but I managed. I had beautiful bouncy frizz free curls all day and the next day. I didn't even use hair spray. A couple of coworkers commented on how good my hair looked. I am in LOVE with my Dyson!
