Like most everyone last year, I had to learn to be flexible with my beauty routine. I swapped the nail salon for at-home manis, put facials on pause for DIY treatments, and even ditched the hair salon. It meant no fancy treatments, no fresh blowouts or styles, no feeling like I just walked out of an ad campaign, absolutely nothing. This made me realize that I needed to invest in a hair tool that was versatile and would give me the same post-salon feeling I was missing—even in a post-pandemic world (whenever that might be). All of my research led me to none other than the Dyson Corrale™ Hair Straightener ($500).
Trust me when I say this straightener is not your average hair tool. It checks off all the boxes and more, which warrants the price tag if you ask me. For starters, it uses intelligent heat control, which essentially responds to the thickness, texture, and length of your hair and automatically controls the temperature for optimal styling results. The flexing plates shape around the hair, gathering it neatly together on each pass for more control, meaning you can achieve the same style with less heat and up to half the damage compared to conventional solid plates. Oh, and did I mention that it’s cord-free? With up to 30 minutes of cord-free run time! (Side note: Whenever it’s not in use, keep it in the charging dock to maximize its cord-free run time.) If that’s not enough to convince you of its true value, then maybe seeing content creator Keri Fay create five different curl and wave types using the Dyson Corrale will.
