Dyson Corrale™ or Dyson Airstrait™: Which is best for you?

Straight hair is a classic style, but it can be hard to achieve without the risk of heat damage.

That’s why the experts at Dyson have created two machines that use different methods to straighten your hair without the use of excessive heat.

Dyson's hair straightening tools the Dyson Airstrait™ and the Dyson Corrale™ elevate your styling options while reducing thermal damage. Below, we'll be comparing the two, giving you the power to enhance your styling routing with the Airstrait™ or Corrale™.

Whats the difference between the Airstrait & Corrale?

If you'd prefer to use hotplates that don't use extreme heat, then the cordless Dyson Corrale™ is right for you as its flexi-plates prevent you needint to increase the temperature when styling.

But if you want to remove hotplates from your styling routine, then you want the corded Dyson Airstrait™ which utilises airflow to dry and style your wet hair.

We should emphasise that both hair straighteners share similar qualities to enhance your Dyson styling experience. Both feature OLED screens to support temperature monitoring and have an inbuilt auto safetly lock, turning off after minutes of inactivity. And they can be used on all hair types.
Ahead, we'll be going in-depth on each styler, but first we'll summarise some key differences between the Airstrait™ and Corrale™.

Why choose the Dyson Airstrait™

Natural looking hair

The Dyson Airstrait™ excels at natural, voluminous straight hair and styles while drying using heated air instead of hot metal plates. Because the hair is blown dry instead of flattened by plates, your hair preserves its natural body. This is ideal for anyone going for that effortlessly beautiful, natural look.

No heat damage¹

It does all this while preventing heat damage.1 Because it doesn’t use extreme heat or make direct contact with your hair, it helps prevent damage that otherwise could occur with high temperatures.

Wet-and-dry straightener

The Dyson Airstrait™ is designed to be used on wet hair, to dry and straighten simultaneously. This combines two separate tasks into one, saving you time and effort. Being able to set a style from wet gives you a shiny finish because it protects your hair’s internal structure.

Cold mode

Cold mode blows cold air onto your finished style. This causes the hydrogen bonds in your hair to stick in place, helping retain your style for longer. This is especially important for those with Type 2, 3 or 4 hair which can visibly fall out of the straightened style over time.

Who is it for?

The Dyson Airstrait™ is ideal for anyone who wants to consistently straighten their hair without losing its natural body. It maintains your hair’s natural volume and avoids heat damage, using airflow.¹ It’s also a time saver, as you can straighten directly from wet, making it ideal for those with places to be.

Why choose the Dyson Corrale™

Prevents splaying

The Dyson Corrale™ is designed to craft a classic straight style, thanks to its flexible copper plates that shape around your hair to collect all your strands, so you get that sleek, smooth, straight style without the risk of flyaways or missed edges. Because the machine provides you with more control than the average solid plate hair straightener, it doesn’t have to use as much heat to give you the look you want.

Hairstyle variety

This Dyson straightener can also be used to create a wide range of wavy and curly hairstyles, giving it more versatility.

Portable and travel ready

The Dyson Corrale™ is a cordless straightener, meaning you don’t have to worry about cable positioning as you straighten your hair.

Plus, it’s completely portable thanks to its cordless design and internal, chargeable battery which uses universal voltage, meaning it can be charged in any country. Wherever you are², you never have to go without your Dyson Corrale™ or your classic straight hair.

Simpler cleaning

Because the Dyson Corrale™ doesn’t use air, it doesn’t feature extraneous elements that need cleaning, like a filter cage. It simply needs the plates wiping down and cleaning. This simple process is quick and easy, meaning you can spend less time on machine maintenance and more time on hair styling.

Who is it for?

The Dyson Corrale™ excels as a cordless versatile straightener that gives you enhanced control and allows you to adopt multiple styles while using less heat than regular plate straighteners. It is portable thanks to its chargeable battery and can be used in any country thanks to its universal voltage. Coupled with its easy to clean body, this straightener is perfect for anyone who likes to experiment with a variety of styles and constantly on the go.

Shared features

These machines aren’t just defined by their differences, but by their shared qualities too. After all, they’re both Dyson hair straighteners and have a shared adherence to quality and innovation. They both feature OLED screens for accessibility, have been designed to work on all hair types and feature auto-shutoffs for safety. Dyson’s pioneering engineering means they both excel.
