Dyson Supersonic Review: Power, Lightness And Modern Design

The new powerful and modern hairdryer is the Dyson Supersonic

I am a fan of ultramodern design and I love the reinterpretation of everyday household items with an artists touch. Finally, form and function has reinvented the ugly ducking in the bathroom – the hairdryer!

Let’s talk form for a moment. Like most Dyson products, the Dyson supersonic looks like it has arrived from the future. It’s is a gorgeous piece of minimal design with sleek iron and fuchsia colour pallet. When you pick it up it is surprisingly light.

Dyson’s reputation for engineering is not limited to our carpets.

We are so used to trading weight and for power. The Dyson supersonic is small, light and quiet with magnetic attachments that simply click on. It is not a ‘travel dryer’ but is small enough and light enough to even take travelling. Dyson put the motor in the handle, giving the Supersonic exceptional balance that makes it feel lighter. I will now have to up my gym workout on my arms as I wont be getting my morning weights workout whilst drying my hair!

This clever hairdryer uses a microprocessor to monitor heat output, and a constant feedback loop to ensure even temperature.

You’ll find the power button on the handle. The buttons for three speeds and three temperatures are tucked away from the grip (a constant frustration in most hairdryers). The max level felt like I was blowdrying my hair in a wind tunnel. Naturally, this is Dyson’s forte, controlling airflow with bladeless fans. It also has some very clever built in additions. It saves your preferred settings when you switch it off.

I did chat to my hairdresser friends about this leap forward in technology. Most thought it was fabulous however, there were the stalwarts who have their routine down with the old heavy, workhorse dryers. They don’t want to change their routine to accommodate evolution. Most agree that the power cord is a little chunky but perhaps that is to avoid having to unravel the twisted cord once a week.

Like all cutting edge products it is a little pricey but if you, like me, dry your hair every morning and appreciate doing it in record time, it is an investment to consider.

Available from retailers RRP $499.
