Dyson Airwrap: what is it?

The Dyson Airwrap is a hair styler that can curl, dry and brush your mane all using one device. What makes it different to other hair curlers? The Dyson Airwrap uses a mix of air and (low) heat to create your desired look while causing less damage to your hair follicles. 

The Dyson Airwrap can be purchased complete (with all attachments) or with certain attachments for your specific hair type or for how you prefer to style it. There's the Dyson Airwrap Smooth + Control or the Dyson Airwrap Volume + Shape to choose from. In all boxes comes a range of heads to use with your Dyson Airwrap, as explained below:

30mm Airwrap™ barrels
This attachment makes an easy job of creating voluminous curls to give the illusion from those who have fine, limp hair that their locks are full of life. You can also use it to create large waves.
