Beauty: Should you spend $399 on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer?

First things first let’s just be real here and talk about how my good friends at Dyson gave me this hair dryer. So NO, I did not spend $399 on the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer.

And can we also take a moment to talk about all the awful things I have done to my hair:

Exhibit A: That one time I thought that My Little Pony hair was appropriate.

Exhibit B: BLUE HAIR. The worst thing I have ever done to my hair.

Ok, now that we’ve established that I hate my hair let’s chat about this $399 hair dryer. If you are like me every other hair dryer in your life came from Target and was never over $50 – so the thought of dropping almost four hundred dollars on a hair dryer sounds kind of crazy – BUT after spending three wonderful months with this hair dryer,  I would 100% drop $400 of my hard earned dollars on this hair dryer.


  • It has intelligent heat control technology, which helps prevent extreme heat damage to protect hair’s natural shine (lord knows I’ve done enough damage on my own).
  • The digital motor is on average six times faster, a third of the weight, and half the size of other hair dryer motors. WHAT does this mean for me? I can dry my hair in 5 minutes, it doesn’t kill my arm and it is oh-so-easy to travel with.
  • 3 magnetic attachments make styling a DREAM. The smoothing nozzle uses smooth, wide air for a sleek finish, while the styling concentrator is for precise styling. The diffuser (not for me) disperses air evenly around curls to gently dry hair and improve definition.
  • It is AWARD WINNING. The Dyson Supersonic is an Allure Best of Beauty award winner and an Allure Reader’s Choice award winner.

Is this not the most attractive hair dryer you have ever seen?

You know by now that I am a big fan of this hair dryer. So if you are going to pull the trigger and buy the hair dryer I HIGHLY recommend that you buy the Blown-A-Ouai Set from Sephora. This set was curated by the one and only Jen Atkin – it is worth $490 and sells for the regular $399 price tag exclusively at Sephora.

“If you know anything about me, you know I’m a lover of innovation and new technology, and the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is just that. The motor is much smaller, but still very powerful, so I can dry hair quickly and it feels light in my hand. Plus, the aesthetic is so gorgeous.”—Jen Atkin, Celebrity Hair Stylist 

The set includes a platinum storage bag with heatproof lining and a magnetic fastening. It also comes with deluxe sizes of replenishing Ouai Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, a travel-size Soft Mousse for gravity-defying volume, and a full-size, hydrating Ouai Hair Oil. THIS is the deal of the century and should be on the top of everyone Christmas list. TRUST ME.

  1. I am seriously considering splurging on this. I have a Dyson vacuum cleaner that I’ve owned for 7 years+ and it’s still going strong. So I think the investment is worth it because it’ll last for a very long time.

  2. I wish I loved that hair dryer… It wasn’t really practical for me even though I tried so hard to make it work! haha
