If you’ve not yet familiarised yourself with adjusting your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer’s temperature or airflow settings, or using each of the attachments, it’s worth watching our Getting started with your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer video. Here you’ll find some great tips on positioning, the temperature setting to use and how to begin styling with different hair types.

Below, we look further at the core attachments available across the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer range. They’re all designed to give optimal control in styling, in an intuitive and easy-to-use way – discover more about the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer by visiting our YouTube channel.

 

Attachments

 

The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer comes with magnetic styling attachments which connect easily and securely, and can be rotated through 360° to suit your styling needs. For tutorials on using these attachments as part of your hair routine, visit either our Styling guide article or watch our video below: 

 

Flyaway attachment

 

The ideal finishing tool for sleek, straight styles. Hides flyaways under longer hair to give you a smooth, shiny finish when dry. With just air. Use it on high speed, low heat. For thicker hair, use higher heat. For finer hair, use a cooler setting.

 

Wide tooth comb attachment

 

Engineered for curly and coily hair, the Wide-tooth comb attachment has robust teeth to help lengthen hair as it dries, or create volume and shape.

This Wide tooth comb attachment is not compatible with the Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryer.

 

Diffuser

 

Improved diffusion for defined curls and waves. Longer prongs reach deeper into the hair.

Re-engineered to disperse air more evenly around your curls, the Diffuser simulates natural drying, helping to reduce frizz and define curls and waves. Longer prongs allow you to style more hair with greater control – and reach deeper into the hair.

 

Gentle air attachment

 

Fast yet gentle styling for fine hair and sensitive scalps.

Engineered to be kinder to fine hair and sensitive scalps, the Gentle air attachment diffuses the air, creating a gentle, cooler airflow - while still drying hair fast.

 

Smoothing nozzle

 

Dry and style your hair simultaneously with gentle, low-speed airflow.

The Smoothing nozzle dries hair gently using smooth, wide air. It helps to create a sleek, natural finish, by using controlled airflow alone.

 

Styling concentrator

 

Engineered to create a high-velocity blade of air that's perfect for styling. And because the air is focused, you can style one section at a time - without disturbing the rest.

 

The Flyaway smoother

 

A 2-in-1 brush to smooth and hide flyaways using the Coanda effect.

Smoothing mode

Coanda airflow attracts hair to the surface of the brush. Air is then propelled along the hair strands for a smooth, straighter style.

 

Flyaway mode

Switch modes to focus the Coanda airflow and lift longer hairs to the front, hiding flyaways below.

Use on dry hair for a shiny finish.

 

Please note, the Flyaway smoother is part of the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer offering in certain countries. Please check your local Dyson website for the latest information.

This Flyaway smoother is not compatible with the Dyson Supersonic Nural™ hair dryer.

 

Brushes and combs

Drying with a hair dryer brush is a great way to achieve natural, trouble-free styling with minimal heat damage. Dyson offers three brushes designed to suit every hair type and style, ready to be combined with the Dyson Supersonic™ hairdryer for a salon look, at home.

 

Paddle brush

 

Ideal for all hair types and any length. Smooth your hair before styling, or during blow drying. Designed for comfort in use – with an ergonomic handle, air-cushion suspension and rounded bristles. 

 

Dyson Vented Barrel brush Iron/Fuchsia (45mm/1.8 inch barrel)

 

For medium-length or long hair. Create volume and shape as you style. With round-tip bristles for scalp comfort, a weighted handle for balance and a vented barrel to prevent hair from overheating. 

 

Dyson Vented Barrel brush Iron/Fuchsia (35mm/1.4 inch barrel)

 

Ideal for short, medium-length hair and fringes. Create volume and shape as you style. With round-tip bristles for scalp comfort, a weighted handle for balance and a vented barrel to prevent hair from overheating. 

 

Detangling comb

 

Detangles and lengthens all hair types, before styling. Or shapes and refines your finished style. Engineered with wide, polished teeth to glide easily through wet and dry hair – with minimal friction.
