Dyson Supersonic review: Bladeless hair dryer

Published

on

When there’s talk of tech innovation, we don’t usually think of hair dryers. Dyson might just change that.

The Dyson Supersonic is today’s top-of-the-line luxury blow dryer. I say that because it costs more than any normal hair dryer would — much more. Just what would justify a steep price tag?

The Supersonic is a sleek-looking device

And, though “sleek” is not usually a word associated with hair dryers, the Supersonic manages to pull it off. It’s smaller and lighter than its counterparts and the pretty pink detail is a touch that brings joy to this pink-lover’s heart.

Dyson Supersonic

It comes with a non-slip mat and three attachments for your different styling needs: the smoothing nozzle, for same-time smoothing and drying; styling concentrator, for precise styling; and diffuser, for wonderful frizz-free curls.

The attachments are magnetic

They stick on the hair dryer so easily, and it’s pretty stable, too! They stay on throughout my blow drying process and have never accidentally fallen off during use — a usual concern with things attached magnetically.

It’s bladeless!

That means there’s nothing your hair will accidentally get caught in — a struggle all of us with long hair know and understand all too well.

Redesigned for balance

The motor, usually found on the top part of hair dryers, is moved to the bottom of the handle. This may not seem like a big thing, but it makes a world of difference when you actually use the dryer.

Because of this change, the Supersonic doesn’t feel as heavy. Unlike hair dryers of old that can be such a great pain to use because of weight and size, the Dyson is easier to handle and hair drying becomes less of a chore.

There are high-tech settings

There are three speed settings and four precise temperature settings on the Supersonic; air temperature is also measured 20 times each second to make sure this is maintained. True to its word, I never felt this dryer get too hot during use.

Is this your GadgetMatch?

All the above changes, when put together, result in a huge improvement to the unchanging design of the old hair dryer. With the Supersonic, the overall experience definitely becomes a better one — which is something that’s long overdue.

Using the Dyson Supersonic

If you had the money to buy the Supersonic, why not! This wonderful innovation, a product of years of research and development, doesn’t come cheap: PhP 21,500 in the Philippines or US$ 400 in the US. Definitely not an amount most people are willing to shell out for vanity.

But, make no mistake: To the right person — actresses, hairstylists, Rapunzel — it can be a very good investment. And that particular person will totally have rocking hair.

Her Holiday Gift Guide: Presents for the different types of women in your life

Tis the season!

Published

on

May it be a sister, a mother, a friend, or a lover, this holiday season is the perfect time to appreciate the women in your life. But, different women have different needs so I’ve rounded up a number of great gift ideas and the type of ladies they’d be perfect for.

You’re welcome.

For the skincare lover

Something to pamper her with! The Foreo UFO offers a home facial mask treatment like no other. Great skin has never been this attainable! This tiny thing is capable of LED light therapy, thermotherapy, and cryotherapy. There are also a number of great face sheets to choose from.

For the fitness buff

For those who aspire for a healthier life, the Fitbit Versa is the perfect gift. Doing what Fitbit does best, the Versa tracks all your health data plus it has smartwatch capabilities! It comes in rose gold and looks pretty with all the great-looking strap options.

For the stylish

Cutting-edge tech for hair styling comes in the form of Dyson’s Airwrap. It’s every girl’s mane dream (pun intended). This iron uses hot air and the British brand’s vacuum technology to make sure hair is curled and not damaged in the process. Oh, and it doesn’t only curl; there are different hair attachments for multiple hair types so you can achieve many looks.

For the sentimental

To help her capture priceless and fleeting moments, get her a Polaroid OneStep+. This pretty camera looks reminiscent of the original Polaroid OneStep; yes, it’s very pretty! Aside from taking great Polaroid photos, this instant camera can now connect to an app. Talk about added fun!

For the traveler

Make her feel safe and look good. Travelon anti-theft bags are perfect to bring on trips. Equipped with RFID-blocking tech, slash-proof material, and locking zippers, these are bags that will leave you with peace of mind without compromising your outfit.

For the homemaker

Make cleaning a breeze with Xiaomi’s Mi robot vacuum. This smart device will clean every inch of your home with a tap on your smartphone. With the Mi Home app, you’ll be able to check which areas the robot has vacuumed and you can even schedule cleaning sessions remotely. And no, this thing won’t fall down the stairs or run over your pets.

For the audiophile

 

iPods are not a thing anymore but this awesome music player is! The Mighty Music Player is a music streaming device — yes, that means you can listen to your Spotify sounds even without your phone. It comes in yummy colors, too.

For the woman on the go

These colorful Bluetooth earphones are not only wireless, but they’re also smart. Honor’s new Flypods look cool with the teal color option, plus it can answer calls, has wireless charging, and responds to touch control.
