Since Dyson launched the Dyson Supersonic™ hairdryer, stylists have put it to good use during Men’s Fashion Weeks around the world. To celebrate, we’ve compiled the top looks for men, which can be created using the Dyson Supersonic™ hairdryer in just five easy steps.  

Style hair when hair is damp as its hydrogen bonds are broken, making it easier to reshape.

 

Fringe Affair

Ideal for hair with long top or sides.

Fringe Affair

Suitable for men with straight to wavy hair, this stylised adaption delivers a smooth finish yet retains the hair’s volume. Re-create this style with the help of two attachments – the Gentle Air Attachment and Smoothing Nozzle. The Gentle Air Attachment can be used for rough drying and is kinder to fine hair and sensitive scalps, while the Smoothing Nozzle helps to dry hair with controlled airflow for a smooth, natural finish.

  1. Attach the Gentle Air Attachment to the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer.
  2. Pre-dry hair by selecting the #2 heat setting which is set at 60°C for cooler drying and #2 speed setting on the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer.
  3. Lift the roots with fingers and dry the scalp area to create some volume.
  4. When roots are dry, switch to the Smoothing Nozzle attachment and set to the #2 speed setting.
  5. Align the attachment with hair, brush and dry the hair going backwards away from the face in multiple directions for a fast, smooth look with volume.
  6. Optional: Add wax to finish your style.

 

Natural Waves

Ideal for shoulder-length hair or longer

Natural Waves

For men with curly hair who favour a tousled look, this style shows off curls with texture and movement. To combat the flyaways that can come with curls, the Diffuser attachment has prongs that reach deep into hair and disperses the air evenly to mimic air drying, in order to get defined curl.

  1. Attach the Diffuser and set settings at #2 for heat setting (60°C for cooler drying) and #2 for speed setting on the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer.
  2. Part hair into left and right sections.
  3. Place hair into the Diffuser, push up to the scalp and hold until dry.
  4. Once sides are dry, tilt head upside down and dry the back and top.
  5. Flip hair back into position and shake out curls for the final look.

 

Mature Sophistication

Ideal for greying hair

Mature Sophistication

This style centres on creating volume which gives the appearance of fuller hair. During styling, older men should take note of scalp care as thinning hair and dry scalps are key concerns. To treat scalps better, the light airflow from the Gentle Air Attachment is suitable for mature hair and sensitive scalps.

  1. Attach the Gentle Air Attachment to the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer.
  2. Select the #2 heat setting which is set at 60°C for cooler drying and #2 speed setting on the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer to pre-dry hair.
  3. Create some volume by lifting the roots with fingers and to dry the scalp area.
  4. When roots are dry, start to brush the hair back using your fingers as you dry the ends.
  5. Optional: Add wax to finish your style.

 

Textured Afro

Ideal for hair with longer length on top with an undercut

Textured Afro

A textured look with blown out roots for added volume, length and style is on-trend. To start, style with the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer with Wide Tooth Comb attachment to achieve shape, length and volume. The teeth of the comb are round-tipped and held together on a flexible bar, which allows the comb to comfortably adapt to the shape of the scalp.

  1. Isolate a section of hair at the back and apply your favourite smoothing product to this section.
  2. Repeat on sections and work your way to the front of the head until all hair is covered.
  3. Attach the Wide Tooth Comb attachment and set the Dyson Supersonic™️ hair dryer to the third speed setting (high for fast drying) and third heat setting (80°C regular drying).
  4. Isolate the same back section and comb through and dry using the Comb, working from the ends up towards the roots.
  5. Repeat this process throughout all sections of your hair working towards the front, doing one section at a time.
