“Our stylists rotate between the attachments quite frequently with our clients, which makes the Dyson Supersonic well worth the investment—it’s like having five tools in one,” says Yene Damtew, owner of Aesthetics Salon in Arlington, Virginia.
As a healthy hair advocate, salon owner Yene Damtew has a no-compromise approach to the services she offers in her salon, the products she and her team recommend, as well as the styling and finishing tools she uses—which is why Damtew has a Dyson Supersonic professional hair dryer at every stylist station at her Aesthetics Salon in Arlington, Virginia.
Light, fast and efficient without a reliance on extreme heat, the Dyson Supersonic professional hair dryer is lauded by master stylists and educators like Damtew for its precision drying, styling versatility and customized heat control with less damage.
“When we switched over our salon dryers to Dyson, it didn’t take long for the team to understand why,” Damtew says. “Everyone saw how much easier it was to work through hair of all textures with less heat. Dyson helps us do our jobs faster, healthier and more efficiently.”
FEATURES + BENEFITS
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.
The five attachments connect to the drier via a magnetic attachment, allowing for 360° degree rotation, and feature Dyson’s Heat Shield technology, which means the attachments stay cool to the touch.
“Being able to customize the heat settings and speed based on the client in our chairs is really important to me,” Damtew says. “I love that the attachments are super easy to use, are lightweight and click on in a snap. Our stylists rotate between the attachments quite frequently with our clients, which makes the Dyson Supersonic well worth the investment—it’s like having five tools in one.”
“In the past I thought a comb attachment would take away some of the artistry of being a hairstylist, but it’s only enhanced my work,” Damtew says. “It’s perfect for highly textured and dense hair and cuts the work in half.”
Why Damtew loves it: “This attachment is perfect for creating curl definition without frizz, especially for my clients who are typically wash-and-go. One of the keys to creating finger coils is using a diffuser to dry them, the Supersonic disperses the air evenly around curls to help them dry faster.”
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
Why Damtew loves it: “I love using the comb attachment whenever I’m doing straight styling—even when doing a flat twist, for an elongated curl pattern. It’s perfect for highly textured and dense hair and cuts the work in half. In the past I thought a comb attachment would take away some of the artistry of being a hairstylist, but it’s only enhanced my work.”
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.
Why Damtew loves it: “This is great for creating totally sleek ponytails and bridal styling, and whenever I want every hair to lay down flat.”
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
Why Damtew loves it: “When I want to create a sleek style with a brush, I always use this attachment. It’s nice, thin and concentrated so the hair isn’t blowing all over.”
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.
Gentle Air Attachment
Why Damtew loves it: “It’s great for styling traditional wash-and-go clients, and for rough drying. I love using the Gentle Air Attachment on hair extensions too.”
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.
For soft bouncy blowouts that last for days, Yene Damtow locks in curls by round brushing them with the Dyson Supersonic professional hairdryer using the Professional Styling Concentrator.
“SMALL BUT MIGHTY.”
“I have a Supersonic in my kit at all times, so that I always have it whenever I’m traveling to service clients, or when I’m on the road educating,” Damtew says. “The Supersonic is a standard in my kit because it’s so compact—it’s small but mighty.”
Featuring a compact head for greater precision, along with the motor housed in the handle, the head of the Supersonic dryer is shorter, allowing stylists to be more precise during close-up styling.
“Traditional blow dryers are heavier on top but Dyson is so lightweight and much more efficient,” Damtew says.
Engineered to last, and tested to extremes, the Dyson Supersonic is crafted with durable materials to last longer. Additionally, the dryer is acoustically tuned to reduce noise and be less intrusive in salon environments, and features an 11ft. cord for extra reach at any angle.
“These small details make the Dyson Supersonic extremely special and unique,” Damtew says.
