Is the DYSON AIRWRAP Really Worth It? | FAB or FAIL

A woman using a curling iron to style her hair.

Y’all this may be the MOST requested Fab or Fail I’ve ever had! I’ve seen so many reviews on the Dyson Airwrap. It’s a 5-in-1 hair tool that claims to be heatless. It’s been flying off the shelves and has been literally sold out everywhere, but it costs $550! Luckily, I was able to get my hands on one, so I’m going to put it to the test and answer the question everyone has been asking – Is it really worth the money?!

Testing the Dyson AIRWRAP

Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler - For multiple hair types and styles, Main, Color, No Color

You can by the Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler online, but it’s currently sold out everywhere. It comes with a base tool that has all of the main functions: on/off, air flow, temperature control, and an indicator letting you know when to empty the filter. The set also comes with 6 following attachments:

  • 1.2 inch Airwrap™ barrels – to create voluminous curls or waves.
  • 1.6 inch Airwrap™ barrels – to create loose curls or waves.
  • Firm smoothing brush – to smooth and control frizz-prone hair.
  • Soft smoothing brush – to gently align and smooth fine hair.
  • Round volumizing brush – to volumize and shape fine, flat hair.
  • Pre-styling dryer – takes hair from wet to damp, to prep for styling.


The Dyson Airwrap gave me a head full of nice, beachy waves.

In my opinion, the brush attachments were just OK, nothing amazing. I feel like I can achieve the same results with a standard blow dryer and round brush. It does a little bit of everything but it’s not great at any one of them. Personally, I didn’t like the smoothing tools attachment. Also, I probably wouldn’t use the dryer attachment because I’m partial to the Dyson blowdryer I already have. I did like the round brush. It gave me great volume at the root and the feeling of a nice blowout. I was most excited to try out the curling barrels. In the end, it gave me beachy waves. However, I was not the biggest fan of the process because it blows out a lot of hot air right by your face, so when I was finished styling, I was super warm. It was definitely harder to get uniform waves, and I’m not sure if they would last as long as a standard wand.

Final Thoughts

Overall, I give this product a FAB AND FAIL! I give it a fab because the product did work; it curled, dried, and volumized my hair. However, I give it a fail because it didn’t do an exceptional job,  and the deal-breaker for me was the price point.
