Thankfully, technology evolved. As far as hair tools go, Dyson is the brand to watch. Yes, this is the same Dyson that creates those (super popular) humidifiers and vacuums. They tasked their engineers to design a hair dryer in 2016, then the Airwrap wet-to-dry styling kit in 2018, and now after seven years in development, a straightener in 2020. It launched in March, but I’ve been playing with it for the past month while cooped up at home in self-isolation, so now I can confidently give you a full breakdown of what makes it so special.
The Dyson Corrale costs $500.
I know, I know. Crazy, right? I leave it up to you to decide if this price point is something you’re willing to spend, but in my opinion the straightener surpasses other ones on the market and pretty much is a two-in-one deal with its curling capabilities. The Airwrap I have is $600 and I’ve been heavily using it for two years. It still works like new every time, and I know it will still be high quality for years to come. Needless to say, you can consider anything Dyson a big, but worthy, investment.
