A guide to choosing the right Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer attachment

The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer comes with magnetic attachments that let you style your hair your way. Connecting easily and securely, they can be rotated through 360° to suit your styling needs. Read on to explore these core attachments – including selecting the best one for your hair type and using them to achieve the look you want.

Dyson Supersonic hair dryer and five attachments

Dyson Supersonic™ attachments for different hair types

All Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer attachments are designed to give optimal control in styling, in an intuitive and easy-to-use way. They’ve been engineered with as much care as the machine itself. New attachments are fully compatible with older versions of the machine.

The attachments range is inclusive and specially designed to style different types of hair. Learn more about each attachment below.

Flyaway attachment

The Flyaway attachment is the ideal finishing tool for sleek, straight styles. It harnesses the Coanda effect to hide flyaways using air, not heat. Longer hairs are attracted and lifted to the front while flyaways are pushed out of sight.

The attachment gives you a smooth, shiny finish and is designed to be used on high speed and low heat. For thicker hair, use higher heat. And for finer hair, use a cooler setting. The Flyaway attachment should be used only on dry and straight hair or hair that’s been straightened.

Re-engineered Diffuser

Engineered to disperse air evenly around curls, the Diffuser simulates natural drying, helping to reduce frizz and define curls and waves. Longer prongs allow you to style more hair with greater control – and reach deeper into the hair. This attachment helps maintain hair’s natural texture while effectively drying it.

Gentle air attachment

Engineered to be kinder to fine hair and sensitive scalps, the Gentle air attachment diffuses the air, creating a gentle, cooler airflow – while still drying hair fast. It lowers the temperature by up to 20°C¹, which helps prevent colour fade too.

Wide-tooth comb attachment

Engineered for curly and textured hair, the Wide-tooth comb attachment has robust teeth to help lengthen hair as it dries or create volume and shape. We recommend starting with a smoothing cream before using the attachment. Use the cold shot to relax curls.

Styling concentrator

The Styling concentrator has a wide, thin design for precision styling. It’s engineered to create a high-velocity blade of air, giving you airflow precisely where you need it. And because the air is focused, you can style one section at a time – without disturbing the rest.

Create volume and shape by pairing the Styling concentrator with the Dyson Vented Barrel brush – either the 45mm or 35mm barrel size – and rolling hair around the brush. You can achieve smooth, straight styles with this attachment, or airflow can bend the hair to create a natural, wavy look.

Smoothing nozzle

This attachment lets you dry and style your hair simultaneously with gentle, low-speed, concentrated airflow. It helps to remove frizz and create a sleek, natural finish. The Smoothing nozzle can add width to your hair, or you can use it with a barrel brush to bend the ends and create bounce.

The Dyson Supersonic™ is not merely a hair dryer – it's a complete hair care system that includes a range of thoughtfully-engineered attachments, each tailored to address specific styling needs and hair types. Whether it's the Flyaway attachment that creates sleek, straight styles, the Diffuser that enhances natural curls by evenly dispersing airflow, or the Styling concentrator that provides precision styling for intricate looks, every attachment serves a purpose.
