Upgrade Your Dyson Hair Dryer & Airwrap With These New Attachments | Clozette


As a long-time user and fan of the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer, I was pretty excited when I received an invitation to Seoul for an exclusive media preview of Dyson’s newest developments.


While there, I learned quite a bit more about what goes behind their innovations, and the key to a good hair day.

The Science Behind Air & Hair


Dyson Media Event in Korea

Korean celebrity hairstylist Je Hee Park demonstrates how to use Dyson’s newest attachments.


According to Sam Burrowes, who hosted a session in his capacity as Advanced Design Engineer, New Product Development, Dyson conducted a global hair study on the attitudes and behaviours towards hair care and styling to truly understand the science of hair, and came up with solutions that thoroughly address the concerns and needs of users around the world.

Perhaps the most prevalent — and not entirely surprising — insights shared was that the top hair-related concern pertained to hair damage from excessive heat, use of styling products, and loss of shine; this was followed by worries about scalp health, with some consumers opting to air dry their hair rather than use hairdryers in order to protect their scalps.

This year — less than a year after the launch of the Dyson Airwrap that went viral online — the brand has unveiled its response after months of research and testing…


Improved Scalp Care & Styling with the new Dyson Supersonic hairdryer attachments


New Dyson Supersonic attachments launches late 2019

In answer to reviews on styling and drying with the Supersonic hairdryer, Dyson has launched a series of hair care and styling attachments that include a Smoothing Nozzle that controls airflow for a smooth, natural finish; the re-engineered Styling Concentrator and Diffuser for section-by-section precision styling and smoother curls respectively; and perhaps their most significant new haircare innovation — the Gentle Air attachment.

Having received substantial user feedback that the speed of air from the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer can be too strong, especially for those with a sensitive scalp or fine hair, Dyson designed and launched the Gentle Air attachment. Engineered for fast yet gentle styling, this accessory provides a softer, more diffused airflow while still drying hair quickly.

Tests were conducted to show the difference in the strength of air currents from the default Dyson Supersonic (left) and the Supersonic fitted with the Gentle Air attachment.


For users with colour-treated hair, the Gentle Air attachment also promises to help keep your hair colour’s brightness for longer thanks to lower hair drying temperatures.



According to top Korean celebrity stylist Je Hee Park, who also hosted the media session, the Gentle Air attachment reduces the amount of stimulation on the scalp significantly, compared with using the Supersonic without it. This is particularly helpful for users experiencing hair fall issues as lower scalp stimulation helps slow hair fall. She also shared that her clients find the drying process a lot more comfortable with the Gentle Air attachment, with fewer flyaways.


The Gentle Air attachment for the Dyson Supersonic is now available in Singapore at the Dyson Demo Store-Beauty Lab for SG49, and online on their website.

If you’re looking to get a Dyson Supersonic hairdryer for the first time, however, they now come already kitted with the Gentle Air attachment as well as the new smoothing nozzle, re-engineered Styling Concentrator, and Re-engineered Diffuser.

Easier Curling & Styling With New Dyson Airwrap Attachments

Long-haired Dyson Airwrap users, rejoice! Following numerous reviews indicating a need to curl each section of hair twice or even thrice in order to curl the entire length, Dyson has announced new 30mm and 40mm Airwrap barrels that are 50 per cent longer, to save time and energy. What this means is that users can look forward to being able to curl longer sections of hair in one pass, finally.

For longer-lasting curls, Park recommends using a nourishing treatment mousse on wet hair before curling it.

Dyson has also introduced a new pair of smoothing brush attachments that are smaller than their predecessor, making them easier to manoeuvre while also opening up new possibilities for users with different hair needs.

Not only do they make styling a breeze for those who grapple with frizzy hair on a daily basis, but they also offer added precision and control for the styling of bangs. Users with shorter hair can also look forward to creating C-curls with greater ease.

If the new Dyson Airwrap attachments have caught your interest, they will be launched in Singapore closer to the end of the year, so keep an eye out for them!

HBO’s Euphoria has made waves on social media with its excellent merging of teenage reality and fantasy escapism — not to mention the brilliant makeup work conceptualized by the lead makeup artist of the show, Doniella Davy. With pigmented eyeshadow, loads of rhinestones, and a ton of glitter, the show sparked a lot of recreations of the show’s signature looks. Here are just some of our favourite Euphoria makeup looks and how you can recreate them yourself.


Cassie's Teal Blue Fantasy



This teal-aquamarine moment was a stark contrast to Cassie’s real-life situation. The heaps of rhinestones used in creating this look just completed the entire visual of a dreamy, innocent fantasy of a lady caught between childhood and adulthood. Doniella used Maybelline’s Colour Tattoo in a green/turquoise shade as an eyeshadow base and used Colourpop’s Super Shock shadow on top, finishing it with the signature rhinestones.


Maddy’s Purple Cat-Eye With Rhinestones



Yet another rhinestone moment in the Euphoria world, this look perfectly captures the character’s fierce yet hopeless romantic personality while adding that trademark fantastical aspect. A pro tip to achieve this look: layer shadows within the same shade range with tape to maintain that winged line. Keep your brows brushed up and natural with clear eyebrow gel to keep the focus on your eyes.


Jules’ Glitter Tears



A signature amongst Euphoria makeup looks, Zendaya’s character has artfully placed glitter tears running down her cheeks. Loose pigment eyeshadows with a glitter primer can help you in remaking this look. Add a single star glitter for a more eye-catching effect.


Rue’s White Eyeliner



This simple liner art can be quite tricky to do, but it's not impossible to achieve. Here's how: With a fine white liquid liner, carefully draw a cloud from the middle of your eyelid to the outer edge of your lower lash line. Just remember that it doesn't have to be perfect at first, and try again as needed.

One way to boost your confidence and increase your appeal is by looking for a scent you absolutely love. Luckily for you, you don’t have to search far and wide for your signature fragrance. Along with classic scents we've come to love, a number of must-have fragrances have also popped up this 2019. There's a wide array of exhilarating tones to choose from that vary from sweet to fresh. So go ahead and update your fragrance stash with these excellent and scent-sational options.



Zesty florals


Flower by Kenzo Eau de Vie



Flower by Kenzo has also been a favourite among girls who enjoy the subtle scents brought by a floral flourish. This eau de parfum is described as a “love-at-first-scent fragrance,” an olfactory melody that makes you want to use again and again. This Kenzo fragrance features a zesty ginger note combined with a joyful orange blossom, that pairs well with Bulgarian rose and Tonka bean. 


Sweet rose


Floraiku Just A Rose


Looking for some classic floral choices from all the must-have fragrances that were released this 2019? Well, nothing can be more feminine than smelling like a rose with Just A Rose from the Enigmatic Flowers Ikebana Collection of Floraïku. This Eau de parfum offers a new take on our favourite rose scent. A sparkling floral, the first whiff of this scent gives the impression of a “rose that has just been freshly picked at the first light of dawn.” Dewy and sweet, the fragrance warms on the skin, revealing the honeyed-sweetness of guaiac wood oil. Meanwhile, bergamot oil also elevates the fragrance brought about by this perfume. Just A Rose comes in indigo and white floral box, each bottle of 50ml is accompanied by its own intricately-designed purse spray.



Elegant bouquet


A bottle of Vera Wang Perfume by Vera Wang



Vera Wang's first-ever fragrance for women, Vera Wang Perfume, carries the modern and sensual spirit that her bridal designs are known for. Her signature perfume for women combines an intoxicating blend of florals like Bulgarian rose, calla lily, and Mandarin flower, along with notes of gardenia, sheer musks, and white woods. Elegant and exquisite, the scent was made to be a sensory bouquet for the modern-day bride.




For a young rebel


Signorina Ribelle


Made with a woman who's a multitude of paradoxes — independent yet romantic, fierce but kind — Salvatore Ferragamo's new Signorina fragrance, aptly named Ribelle, is perfect for a young rebel. Expect the unexpected with a blend of sweet and spicy scents — mandarin and red pear paired with pink pepper. It's floral but woody and filled with whimsy.
