With countless editorial, red carpet and film credits to his name, Emmy-nominated celebrity hairstylist Sacha Quarles earned his reputation in Hollywood—and beyond—not just for his expansive skills with cutting, coloring, extensions and styling, but for helping his star-studded clientele achieve healthy hair.
Breakage, split ends and color-fade run rampant in damaged hair, not to mention how quickly styles fall flat—and under bright studio lights, long hours on-set, and high-resolution cameras that show every flyaway and split, Quarles says, healthy hair is critical.
“Thanks to heat control, high velocity airflow and sophisticated technology, Dyson’s professional tools allow me to style, and recreate styles, without overworking the hair,” Quarles says. “Top-of-the-line stylists use top-of-the-line tools—and Dyson is the best on the market. If you know what the best is and you’re using the best, it promotes the fact that you are the best before even starting the work.”
Intelligent Heat Control Technology
The number-one culprit to damage and hair color fade? Not using temperature-controlled tools. That’s why Quarles reaches for Dyson’s Supersonic professional hair dryer, which features Intelligent Heat Control technology and multiple heat settings that style all hair types and textures without extreme heat.
“People tend to associate hair damage from their curling irons or flatirons, but often dryers are worse since you’re adding tension with brushes and pulling the hair while you heat it,” Quarles says. “The Supersonic’s high-velocity jet of controlled airflow allows heat and air to push through the hair for faster drying and more control, with less reliance on heat.”
Dyson's Intelligent Heat Control consistently regulates temperature to help prevent extreme heat damage to the hair, resulting in shiny, healthier-looking hair that reflects light.
The Supersonic professional dryer features three precise speeds alongside four heat settings: 212°F fast drying and styling, 176°F for regular drying, 140°F for cooler drying and diffusing and an 82°F cool shot.
“Temperature control is the most important thing in the world,” says Quarles, who has worked with trichologists for nearly three decades to study hair health. “As soon as hair gets damaged from heat, it’s dead—no mask or conditioner can fix it. The only way it heals is by cutting it off.”
Magnetic Styling Attachments
The Supersonic’s magnetic attachments feature 360° rotation, as well as Dyson Heat Shield technology to keep their surfaces cool to the touch.
“Each attachment is brilliant, but my favorite is the diffuser,” Quarles says. “It perfectly locks in styles while accentuating waves and movement.”
Benefit: Hides flyaways
How it works: Attracts and lifts longer hairs to the surface while pushing flyaways out of sight, leaving a smooth shiny finish.
Professional Styling Concentrator
Benefit: Precise styling
How it works: Wider and thinner to create a high-velocity blade of air for precision styling. Controlled airflow allows you to focus on one section at a time without disturbing the rest.
Benefit: Defined curls and waves
How it works: Even diffusion helps reduce frizz and define curls and waves. Longer prongs allow you to style more hair with greater control—and reach deeper into the hair.
Wide-Tooth Comb Attachment
Benefit: Volume and shape for curly hair
How it works: Engineered for curly and coily hair, the Wide-Tooth Comb Attachment has robust teeth to help lengthen hair as it dries or create volume and shape.
Gentle Air Attachment
Benefit: For fine hair and sensitive scalps
How it works: Engineered to be kinder to fine hair and sensitive scalps, the Gentle Air Attachment diffuses the air, creating a gentle cooler airflow while drying hair fast.

Corrale Straightener + Styler
Also designed with Intelligent Heat Control, the Dyson Corrale straightener + styler responds to the thickness, texture, and length of hair and automatically controls the temperature for optimal styling results.
The Corrale’s copper flexing plates shape to gather hair for extra control, enabling enhanced styling with less heat and less damage.
With three precise heat settings and up to 30-minutes of cord-free styling, the Corrale is a session stylist favorite.
“When at a photoshoot and you only have a moment to jump in to adjust a look, or if you’re shooting outside in heat and humidity, having a cord-free option to quickly smooth or wave the hair without having to deal with wires or find an outlet is a game-changer,” Quarles says.
Another session stylist favorite? A flight-ready feature that lets you travel with your Corrale while safely securing the iron.
“If you want to create work at the highest level, you need to use the highest-quality tools,” Quarles says. “Not only is it impressive to our clients when we are using a tool that they know is high quality, it creates an air of echelon that says you deserve the rate you’re asking for.”
