The Dyson Supersonic Gets an Upgrade: Introducing the Flyaway Smoother Attachment


We all know that feeling of spending a small fortune on a hairdryer, only to find that it doesn’t quite live up to expectations. Well, Dyson is here to change that narrative with their Supersonic blow dryer. Originally released in 2016, this iconic hair tool has gained a loyal following with its innovative design and stellar performance. But the question on everyone’s mind is: is it still worth its $430 price tag?

To keep us on our toes, Dyson has recently unveiled a new attachment for the Supersonic, the Flyaway Smoother. Priced at $59.99, this attachment is the first in the Supersonic’s lineup to come with a brush. It complements the five attachments already included with every dryer: the styling concentrator, wide tooth comb, gentle air attachment, diffuser, and the flyaway attachment.

So, what sets the Flyaway Smoother apart? Well, this attachment takes advantage of Dyson’s Coanda technology, the same technology that wraps hair on the Airwrap’s curling barrels. It lifts longer hairs to the front of your hair while tucking away shorter flyaways, giving you a sleeker look. While the older flyaway attachment worked well enough, it couldn’t quite replicate the effectiveness of a round brush. That’s where the improvements of the Flyaway Smoother come in.

Similar to the Airwrap’s Coanda smoothing dryer, the Flyaway Smoother is versatile and can be twisted to perform different functions. In “smoothing mode”, the brush bristles pull hair to the brush while directing airflow for overall smoothing. Twist the attachment, and you’ll switch to “flyaway mode”, which functions similarly to the original flyaway attachment.

It’s important to note that the Flyaway Smoother is not a replacement for the flyaway attachment, but rather an additional accessory available for purchase. This begs the question: with five attachments already included, how many more can one person possibly need? Dyson seems to have targeted those who desire a sleek style but struggle to achieve it with the existing attachments.

While we haven’t had the chance to test the Flyaway Smoother yet, we’re optimistic considering Dyson’s track record with quality attachments. In fact, the similarly-designed Shark HyperAIR’s styling brush won our hearts, further fueling our excitement for this new addition to the Supersonic lineup.

In conclusion, Dyson continues to push the boundaries of hair technology with the introduction of the Flyaway Smoother attachment for the Supersonic blow dryer. With its Coanda technology and brush design, it aims to give users an even smoother and sleeker styling experience. While the need for yet another attachment may be debatable, Dyson’s commitment to innovation and quality assures us that the Flyaway Smoother is an accessory worth considering for those who desire a flawless look. So, is the Dyson Supersonic still worth its price tag? With the Flyaway Smoother attachment, the answer just might be a resounding yes.
