From today, the Flyaway will be one of the tools that comes with any new Supersonic hairdryer purchased in the UK. If you’ve already got a Supersonic, you can buy it separately for £30.
The Flyaway is fresh from Dyson’s engineering department and it hides away flyaway hairs to give you a smoother hairdo.
How the Flyaway works
Like the Dyson Airwrap, the Flyaway tool harnesses the Coanda effect to help style your hair. The Coanda effect describes the way that a stream of water or air sticks to a flat or a curved surface. Essentially, the Coanda effect is the reason that jugs have spouts; it’s what makes your tea run down the side of your mug when you try to pour it out.
The Flyaway is a semi-circular loop tool that attracts longer hairs to the front of your hairstyle, while a second jet of air pushes flyaway hairs away and underneath. Essentially, it mimics what stylists do to smooth your hair in a salon.
For Afro hair: the wide tooth comb
If you have Afro, curly or textured hair, the Flyaway tool isn’t going to do much for your hair but the Supersonic now also comes with a wide tooth comb attachment. It’ll help you to lengthen, style and shape your hair.
If you’ve already got a Supersonic, you can
buy the wide tooth comb attachment for £30.
How to get the Flyaway attachment
The Supersonic costs £299.99 and is
available from the Dyson website or the Dyson Demo Store on Oxford Street. It comes with five tools and accessories: a styling concentrator, a diffuser, a gentle air attachment, the flyaway and the wide tooth comb.
But the cheapest way to get a Supersonic is to buy it refurbished from Dyson, which will
set you back £239.99. Add the flyaway attachment or the wide tooth comb to your basket and you’re still ahead, price-wise.
If you already own a Supersonic, you can
buy the Flyaway separately from the Dyson website, for £30. You can see all available
accessories and attachments on the website.
The Supersonic is available in the US
from Dyson.com for $399.99.
