After the success of its Supersonic hair dryer and Airwrap styler, Dyson has launched the next hair styling tool that we predict is set to make waves (we’re not sorry) – the Corrale Hair straightener.

With traditional flat plate straighteners, it’s often the thickest part of the hair section that gets the most heat exposure, leaving strands at the edges and at the end untreated.

To nip this in the bud, the Corrale comes with two flexible manganese copper alloy plates (a combination of six metals) that conform to the hair section. This keeps it in place and stops strands from splaying, which allows for heat and tension to be evenly applied down the length. In this instance, there’s no need for searing temperatures or to repeatedly run it through your locks to get the job done, hence reducing heat damage.

The plates are coated with nickel and smooth titanium nitride to reduce friction so it glides along your hair like a dream. Plus, it’s not just for straightening – the Corrale can also be used to create an S-wave a flat wave or even a curl.

There are three heat settings at 165°C, 185°C, and 210 °C , so users can adjust it to their hair types and preferred style. You don’t have to worry about frying your precious strands, too – Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control tech comes with sensors that assess and regulate the heat of the copper plates at 100 times per second.

If anything, Dyson’s range of top-notch stick vacuum cleaners (check out our editor’s review in the link below) are proof that the brand knows a thing or two about cordless technology.

Making it handy for those on the go, the cordless straightener comes with a four-cell lithium-ion battery (although this makes it slightly heavier) that provides enough juice for up to 30 minutes of styling with 70 minutes of charge time. It’s also available with a cord if you require more styling time or for hybrid charging.

The Dyson Corrale Hair Straighter retails at $699 at www.dyson.com.sg.
