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.
