Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer Review: Everything You Need to Know About the Stylist-Approved Hair Tool

When it comes to drying hair, few tools are as coveted as the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. Though the device rings in at a few hundred dollars, it is incredibly sought after and the industry’s leading stylists, tastemakers, and celebrities all sing its praises. As for this beauty editor, no matter how many dryers I try, I find myself constantly reaching for the Supersonic wash after wash. But is it really worth the price? My review of the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, below.

How Does the Dyson Supersonic Work?


Supersonic Hair Dryer

“Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient, and make a racket…they can also cause extreme heat damage to hair,” James Dyson, the British inventor and founder of the brand, said in a press release. “I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hair dryer, which we think solves these problems.” That being said, after four years of development, Supersonic was the result of their research.

How the tool differs from the rest is, in part, its smart temperature control. According to Dyson, the technology measures the temperature 20 times per second to ensure hair isn’t exposed to extreme heats. Once you select your temperature setting, a controlled airflow (funneled at 20 degrees through a small, but mighty motor) allows you to dry hair with precision. When it comes to customization, there are four heat settings, three airflow speeds, and a cold shot button. Not to mention, seven attachments: a flyaway nozzle, styling concentrator, diffuser, wide tooth comb, smoothing nozzle, gentle air nozzle, and a flyaway smoothing brush—the last of which, the brand unveiled earlier this month as the first two-in-one attachment (designed to smooth and tame flyaways simultaneously).

The Supersonic hair dryer, plus the seven attachments, are what you get for about $430 year-round; however, in an effort to simplify its offering—today, Dyson unveils the Supersonic Origin. Say you don’t want all the frills of the traditional set or would like another dryer for travel, you can get the dryer with just the styling concentrator at a fraction of the cost.

Our Experience With the Dyson Supersonic

Vogue editors are certainly not new to Dyson technology. When we first got word in 2016 that Dyson—then known for vacuums and fans—was entering the beauty space, we called in the device immediately. We have been impressed since day one. Since, our team has been testing it on a range of styles and hair types. For me, the draw to the Supersonic is its efficiency. I gravitate towards the wide-tooth comb attachment to work through my thick, curly mane with ease—quicker than any other drier I’ve tested. (I am not nearly coordinated enough to maneuver a brush with one hand and a hair dryer with the other, so this is game-changing!) Even when I’m wearing extensions or protective styles, I clip on the styling concentrator to ensure my roots are actually dry.
