These next-generation Airwrap attachments include the Coanda smoothing dryer, which has two modes you can switch between without ever having to swap attachments. Choose the pre-styling mode for drying damp and straight-out-of-the-shower-wet hair, then for the finishing touch, switch to smoothing mode, ridding your hair of those pesky flyaways while adding shine. 

Dyson also reinvented its firm and soft brush attachments (available in two sizes). These new ones are designed to allow more airflow between the rows of bristles to straighten your hair more efficiently, making your at-home blowout look extra soft and shiny. 

Last, but definitely not least, Dyson has updated its iconic Airwrap curling barrels. Good news: You will no longer need to swap between the left and right arrow-facing barrels included in the original version. These barrels spin both clock- and counter-clockwise — just turn the wand right or left while it’s on the base to feel the airflow in the direction you choose.

Hair after using the Dyson Airwrap’s new attachments

Once I got my hands on the new attachments (which are also compatible with the original model), I put them to the test. After showering, I gave my waves a chance to air-dry halfway before going in with a leave-in conditioning spray and dividing my hair into six sections. I stretched my waves out with the Coanda smoothing dryer in “pre-styling mode”. Once I gave my hair a rough dry, it was time for some extra finessing. 

Using the large firm brush, I  brushed through my strands to smooth them out. Once my hair was straight — a.k.a. the opposite of what it looks like naturally — I gave my ends a subtle wave. All it took was a little flick of the wrist and a few passes with the firm brush for bouncy ends

I say this with the pun very much intended: The Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler’s new attachments made smoothing out my thick, wavy hair a breeze. Whether you are looking to upgrade your attachments for your hair type or are on the waitlist for the order AirWrap version, grab your’s today on for $600, or pick up the attachments for $39 each.
