Do you remember that exciting day back at the end of June when we nicely asked our Instagram followers to vote on hairstyles they wanted to see come to life? I, for one, voted for a ’90s-inspired ‘do and beach waves, and it turns out most other people did as well, as they were the winning styles from our poll. Sure, on paper, they might sound standard, but it’s more complicated than that. How do two people with very different hair types achieve the same look? By investing in the right tool.
One of the best ways to determine a straightener’s effectiveness is to try it on different hair types, which is exactly why I tapped Who What Wear’s wavy-haired editor in chief, Kat Collings, and curly haired fashion editor Anneliese Dominguez to put the Dyson Corrale™ Hair Straightener ($500) to the test. To no one’s surprise, it lived up to the hype. Both were able to achieve the same styles on a lower heat setting all because of the flexing-plate technology and intelligent heat control, which essentially responds to the thickness, texture, and length of anyone’s hair and automatically controls the temperature for optimal styling results. “It’s like the machine is just smarter and knows how to adapt to (and make the most of) your hairstyling know-how. The technology basically transforms you into a hairdresser,” says Collings.
I know it sounds too futuristic to be true, but it is, and Dominguez and Collings prove it below. Keep scrolling to see their takes on each hairstyle and why the Dyson Corrale is worth the investment.
“It’s no secret that the Dyson Corrale is an investment, but if you use a straightener regularly or just want exceptional results when you do, I’d recommend it. My previous straightener was professional level, and not exactly affordable either, but I found that switching to the Dyson Corrale gets me better results. And the cord-free factor is huge. Besides just being convenient, it has unrestricted movement that actually helps increase control. Plus, lower heat means less damage. When you put all of these things together, the investment starts to make a lot of sense.” — Collings
