Is the New Dyson Airwrap Worth $599?

Published

on

A few months back we learned that a new Dyson styling tool—the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete—was going to drop in the summer. Not to be dramatic, but we may have added it to our calendars with all of the heart-eye emojis the character count would allow. Well, the countdown clock is up and the next-gen Airwrap is finally here. 

The updated model comes four years after the original’s debut, and it features not one, not two, but seven (!) styling attachments and a host of fresh blow-dry features. It’s designed specifically for people with long hair and, the most game-changing update of all, for curly and coily hair types. (Curly girls, we know you’ve been waiting for this.) All-in-all, the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete promises a simplified styling process with salon-level results for all. 

Before we get to whether the tool delivers on that sentiment, you should know how the newbie compares to the classic. The original Dyson Airwrap model included six attachments: a 1.2-inch barrel, a 1.6-inch barrel, a firm smoothing brush, a round volumizing brush, and a pre-styling dryer. The new Multi-Styler Airwrap Complete has 13. These include a wide-tooth comb for curly and coiled hair, two round volumizing brushes, and four smoothing brushes with hard and soft bristles. There’s also a more compact smoother that uses Enhanced Coanda airflow—which allows for air to be distributed more evenly and efficiently—to dry and hide flyaways by up to 58%. 

The curling barrels also feature a twisting knob on the top to change the direction of airflow depending on which way you want your curls to spiral. This is significant since owners of the original Dyson Airwrap have to switch barrels if they want their curls to spiral differently. (Of course, if you do already have the older Airwrap, these new attachments—which can be purchased separately—are all compatible with the O.G., so you don’t need to splurge on an entirely new system to test out the newer tools.) The game-changing technology Dyson is known and loved for—think hyperprecise airflow speeds for diffusing and fast drying, and intelligent temperature control to minimize heat damage, plus a cold shot—all remain intact.

The Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete retails for $599, whereas the original was priced at $450. The price is steeper in comparison to other devices in the Dyson lineup— the Supersonic Hair Dryer rings in at $430, and the Corrale straightener clocks in at $500. Because of Dyson’s advanced, proprietary technology, it’s no surprise that these styling tools are a lot more expensive than traditional hair-dryer brushes like the Revlon One-Step ($40) or the Glamour Beauty Award-winning Drybar Double Shot Dryer Brush ($155). Even so, a purchase like this is not light on our wallets, so we put the updated Airwrap to the test on two editors: one with naturally straight hair and another with thick hair and 3C curls. 

Keep scrolling to see how the Dyson Airwrap Multi-Styler Complete worked on the two different hair textures, and read our editors’ honest reviews of the new device below.

Hair Filler Is the Secret Behind Most Celebrity Bobs

Published

on

Between Barbiecore style and skunk stripe hair, it’s clear that the post-lockdown beauty vibe is go big or go home—hence the rise in superlong mermaid hair extensions and a subsequent surge in perfectly blunt bobs. 

The two styles may seem like opposites, but for celebrity stylists, the long-then-short-then-long lifestyle is just another day’s work…of installing hair extensions. “To go from long hair to short and back the next day, celebrities braid their hair, and glue weft extensions onto the braids, leaving just their natural hairline out,” celebrity hairstylist Marc Mena says of the temporary “faux bob.” “It’s not permanent, but it allows them to change their look dramatically, and no one can see the difference.” 

It’s true: Chris Appleton, who styled Kim Kardashian’s 2019 bob and regularly styles J.Lo’s hair, confirmed that he “hides” the braided hair under extensions in his Behind the Chair masterclass. But this technique only works for a few days, Mena adds, comparing the faux bob to gluing on false eyelashes.

Other celebrities, like Khloe Kardashian and Megan Fox, who like to play with varying lengths for longer periods of time usually opt for clip-ins, tape extensions, keratin bonds, and/or hand-tied extensions, Lilybeth Vargas, hair extensions specialist and master colorist at The Parlor, tells Glamour. She personally recommends clip-ins on an event-by-event basis.

As for why so many celebrities wear hair extensions in the first place? It’s possible their hair is damaged from changing it so much. “Celebrities change their hairstyles for the trends that are in at that moment, which can be a lot on natural hair,”  RPZL lead stylist Stephanie Angelone tells Glamour. “This can cause a damage, thinning, and hair loss, so adding hair extensions, or ‘hair filler,’ will add fullness and help get their hair back its integrity.”

That Prada Logo Tank Top You’ve Been Eyeing Has Finally Hit Stores

Published

on

Sure to be the street style It item this upcoming fashion month, that white triangle-plaque logo tank top from Prada’s fall 2022 collection has finally hit stores. The top, a ribbed scoop neck, opened the show (worn by Kaia Gerber) and was styled throughout the collection from beginning to end. We saw it under oversized shearling jackets and on top of many different interpretations of the collection’s lovely three-layer skirts.

Just seeing how many looks were anchored by the tank tells us of the top’s versatility but also its cult-status potential. This top will likely enjoy the white-hot status of the brand’s triangle-plaque bucket hat or smooth leather loafers; this is certainly another one of those wish-list items fashion obsessives are sure to line up for or, in this case, save up for to wear this season and several to come.
