As an advocate of affordable drugstore beauty buys, I know more than well that the saying "you get what you pay for" doesn't always apply to certified cult-favourites. But with that said, there’s also no denying the game-changing technology and science behind the priciest SKUs on the market.
While it’s rare that high-end, luxury beauty tools and products (*cough* La Mer) ever go on discount, Nordstrom is giving shoppers a chance to snag a handful of reputable products on sale for up to 25 per cent off, including the infamous Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer.
What is it?
Used and adored by celebrity makeup artists everywhere, this hairdryer is powered with a high-speed and digital motor to instantly dry hair without the frizz of conventional hair dryers. Thanks to its heat control technology, it helps prevents heat damage and protects the hairs natural shine and texture.
SHOP IT: Nordstrom, $450 (originally $600)
How does it work?
The unique airflow of this revolutionary dryer is amplified to produce a controlled, high-velocity jet of air for fast drying, while it measures airflow temperature over 40 times to prevent extreme heat damage.
The key controls of the Dyson Supersonic include three precise speed settings (High for fast drying and styling, Medium for regular drying and Low for diffusing), four precise heat settings for precise style control and a Cold shot setting of 28°C to set your hair after styling.
It increases hair smoothness by 75 per cent, shine by up to 132 per cent and decreases frizz and flyaways up to 61per cent.
What are people saying?
“I've been eyeing this dryer for over a year and I finally purchased. It's well worth the money, especially for those who style our hair often. I love how it dries my hair quickly and I can feel the difference from my previous dryer in terms of heat damage. I recommend,” reads on five-star review.
“This hair dryer is worth every penny. I was skeptical because of the price but it was well worth the purchase. I have thick hair so blow drying takes forever. My time has been cut in half thanks to Dyson,” reads another.
While another review says, “Worth every penny in delivering the exceptional performance and reliability of every product in the Dyson line. Very easy to learn to operate, switch out magnetic attachments, and get perfect results. I made the mistake of thinking a less costly, even if 5-star rated hairdryer (T3 Kura Luxe) could achieve the beautifully smooth or styled results while leaving my hair feeling silky (not dried out), and finally realized there is nothing to compare to the Dyson.”
Is it for you?
Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is specially designed for all hair types and textures — including coils, curls, colour-treated hair and dry, split ends. To better care for your hair type and concerns, the Dyson Supersonic includes a wide range of magnetic engineered styling attachments:
Smoothing nozzle: Dry and style your hair at the same time with gentle, low-velocity airflow.
Styling concentrator: Style your hair one section at a time with precise, controlled airflow - without disturbing the rest.
Diffuser: Disperse air evenly around each of your ringlets. Simulates natural drying, helping to reduce frizz for improved definition.
The Gentle Air Dryer: Engineered for fast yet gentle styling for fine hair and sensitive scalps, while also helping to prevent colour fade by maintaining lower temperatures. The attachment provides a softer, more diffused airflow whilst still allowing fast drying.
Wide Tooth Comb: Engineered for curly and coily hair, the new Wide tooth comb helps shape, lengthen and create volume. Conventional combs can lack styling ability, cause pain and damage hair. Dyson’s new Wide tooth comb’s teeth have a large soft radius enabling more even drying, with a flexible torsion bar that helps with effective detangling.
