Designed to work for multiple hair types, the core purpose of the Airwrap has always been to deliver a range of salon-quality styles without using extreme heat. One of the pioneering technologies that makes this possible is the unique Coanda effect – an aerodynamic phenomenon that wraps the hair around the barrels to create a curl. Since launching in 2018, the styler has come out with plenty of new re-engineered brush attachments and barrels to curl and wave the hair in both directions. This includes brushes to shape a wide-tooth comb attachment engineered for curly and coily hair, plus a multifunctional Coanda smoothing dryer to dry, smooth and hide flyaways too – all of which make the process of drying and styling the hair so much simpler.
For a classic, bouncy beach wave, hold the barrel vertical to your head and wrap each section – just like you would with a classic curler. Ensure the hair wraps away from the face – alternating here and there is what creates a more tousled, undone look. Repeat, then run your fingers through to separate the larger curls and create a softer, natural-looking wave. Using the cool setting for the last five seconds will encourage better hold.
Straight & Sleek
Start by rough drying the hair with the Coanda smoothing dryer. When it’s about 60% dry, move onto the styling. To straighten hair, use the smoothing brush attachment. Simply section off and work through the hair to see it come out glossy and frizz-free. To ensure the sleekest finish, add a little oil at the end. If you want to switch things up, add a little curve at the end for a bouncier look. For added volume, dry the hair in the opposite direction to the side it naturally sits.
For that subtly curled look where the ends just have a little shape, opt for the larger barrel. Hold the tool horizontally and let the hair wrap around the barrel ends moving it up and down the strands to create more volume. Use the cool setting to ensure a better hold. Repeat this through the hair for a 90s style blow-out finish.
