When I first heard that Dyson had brought out a hair straightener in the form of the Dyson Corrale, I thought ‘how is this going to work?’ An air powered straightener? However, I quickly realised that this was a brand new product entirely, one to rival well established brands in the straightener market. So I was definitely intrigued and excited to test it out for myself. Here’s what I thought of Dyson’s Corrale Straightener.

The Dyson Corrale comes in a compact storage box, which is a nice addition to the special Holiday Edition for 2022 and comes in a beautiful Vinca Blue & Rose colour option. It is the most stunning rich blue colour with rose gold plates.

You also get a beautiful velvet heat proof pouch to use when travelling. 

Using the Corrale

The Dyson Corrale is not like any straightener I’ve used before. First off, it’s both battery operated for 30 mins without any annoying cords and also has an option for plug in when you need a bit more time to style your hair.

The cordless option is very handy for those moments when you’re running late and need to straighten your hair on the go.

Secondly it has 3 heat settings: 165c, 185c, and 210c to suit all hair types and styling needs. It only takes a few seconds to get up to temperature and it will stay at the temperature it was last set at.

The plates are made of manganese copper, a material that allows the plates to flex and gather hair to ensure all strands are being straightened. This helps to protect the hair by only having to run the hair over the plates once but also allows the strands to move so they are not pulled and broken.

The Battery 

The Corrale has a 4-cell lithium-ion battery, not something you see in straighteners usually. The battery will last up to 30 mins and can be fully charged within 70 mins. The straightener comes with an in-built ‘Airplane Mode’ which is important for travelling as this disconnects the battery to the power source. It’s basically like a pull out tab built directly into the straightener that allows you to ensure the battery is fully disconnected.

The Dyson Corrale also has a standby feature where if the plates do not detect any movement within 5 minutes it will start to cool down automatically, which is very handy from a safety point of view and was beneficial when I was rushing to get ready and wasn’t certain if I had powered down the straightener or not.

What I found using the Dyson Corrale

On my first try, I noticed a grating sound when I pulled my hair through the plates. This was a bit unnerving however, with a bit of research, I soon realised this is just the flexing plates moving with my hair and not damaging it. My hair is quite thin so using other hair straightening products I find my hair is done very fast so I didn’t notice a whole lot of difference in using the Corrale, however, I do love the cordless feature even if this does make the product a little heavier than what I’m used to. 

Another nice feature is that the rounded body of the straightener and wider flexing plates gather hair with control and allow for a sleek movement through each section—like the kind of fluidity you would get with a round brush—so with each pass, I felt like my hair is left with much more volume and movement than there would be with a regular straightener.

Like the Dyson Airwrap, the Corrale straightener also has intelligent heat control, but where the Airwrap will check the temperature 50 times per second, the Corrale doubles this, checking it 100 times per second to ensure it doesn’t exceed the temperature you’ve set. which is great at ensuring you’re not going to cause excessive heat damage to your hair over extended periods of us.


This product is really suited to anyone who has thick or very curly hair who wants to create a sleek straightened look without damaging their hair. For me though, I unfortunately can’t justify paying €479.99 as I can create the same look using a much cheaper brand.
