If you are the proud proprietor of a Dyson Airwrap, we’re about to hit you with some game-changing data. Your pre-styling dryer attachment — you already know, the ovular one with the gap by the center — can truly straighten your hair all by itself… that’s if you happen to use it in a considerably peculiar approach. As individuals on TikTok just lately found, you’ll be able to simply loop sections of hair by the center of that gap, flip it the wrong way up, and slowly drag the dryer from the prime down.
Take it from New York City hairstylist Matt Newman; whereas testing a related dryer with a related attachment, he rough-dried his hair as typical in a video, after which a handful of commenters instructed him he was utilizing it incorrectly. He says he had no concept what that meant till he noticed another person looping their hair by the gap “for a split second” throughout a late-night TikTok scroll.
So he tried the methodology for himself in a video, proven above, that went a little viral (and by “a little,” we imply it is earned 14 million views and counting). In response, some Dyson Airwrap homeowners put it to the check with flawless outcomes.
Naturally, we had to attain out to Dyson to verify whether or not or not the pre-styling attachment was truly designed to be used this fashion. “While [Dyson] loves seeing people experiment with Airwrap, the attachment was not designed to be used this way,” a consultant of the model says. So if you happen to’ve been utilizing your dryer the conventional approach, don’t be concerned, you are not doing something mistaken. This hack clearly does the trick if you happen to’re attempting to straighten your hair on the fly, although.
The important caveat, by the approach, is that it undoubtedly works higher on dry hair than moist — as Newman found first-hand — however if you happen to give your hair a good tough dry first, you ought to be in first rate form.
A Dyson Airwrap, as you nicely know, is unquestionably a little bit of a price range buster (550 large ones, to be actual). This new methodology, nonetheless, proves simply how versatile it truly is (and that is with simply one of the six attachments). Makes us surprise what different styling instruments we needs to be utilizing in a different way…
