Buy the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer with a 20% discount

I used to think the hallmark of a fancy hotel was a bathrobe. But the more I travel – and I’m on the road a lot as a travel writer – the more I think it’s a Dyson. I’m not talking about the best-selling vacuum cleaner, but the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer. I like to call it the Tesla of hair dryers because it is slimmer, faster and safer than traditional hair dryers.


I got to use the Dyson Supersonic hairdryer while visiting five-star hotels such as Hotel Fauchon in Paris, Kimpton Maa-Lai in Bangkok, and The Green O in Montana. What did all these luxury properties have in common, despite being on different continents? Their bathrooms all flaunt the hair gods’ gift to humanity.


The downside of this great hair dryer? A high-quality, salon-level beauty tool usually comes with a hefty price tag. And while Dyson hair dryers never go on sale, Dyson loyalists who own a branded product (it must be registered) can currently save 20 percent on this hair dryer through Dyson’s Owner Rewards promotion. This deal runs until December 10 and offers each customer a total saving of $86 – a rarity when it comes to Dyson.

Recently, after years of considering investing in this dryer, I finally got my hands on the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. While it’s pricey, at $50 for a blowout, this hair dryer pretty much pays for itself in a month or two if you’re getting blowouts on a weekly basis. And if you’re skeptical like I was before I first used one, you’re probably wondering what the difference is between the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer and a $30 option.


As well as looking cooler – it’s more compact and not made from cheap plastic – the Dyson has state-of-the-art technology. For example, it uses an air multiplication effect, which means three times as much air gets into your hair. With my old hair dryer it took about 12 minutes to dry my hair. With the Dyson I’m out of the bathroom in five minutes. Saving seven minutes a day may not seem like much, but blow-drying your hair five days a week saves you 28 hours a year!

What makes it so cool is that the Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer has an “intelligent heat control”. This mechanism measures the temperature of the air coming out of the dryer more than 40 times per second. If the air gets too hot, it cools itself down. With other hair dryers that did not have this feature, I have damaged my hair badly. These days I don’t fry my hair, I dry my hair.


The Dyson Supersonic Hair Dryer is also easy to adjust. It has three speeds and four heat settings, including a cold setting, so you can lock in the look. The “look” I always get with this hair dryer is sleek and shiny, even when I don’t use any product. Dyson even promises that your hair will be 75 percent smoother, 132 percent shinier and you’ll have 61 percent fewer flyaways. I don’t know if those numbers are correct. I just know I’m happy with what I see in the mirror and feel with my hands.

Yes, it’s pricey, but it comes with a chic storage case and several attachments that offer different finishes. Whether your hair is curly or straight, you can achieve your hair goals. Since the attachments are magnetic they are easy to attach and more importantly they won’t fall off when dry. I don’t feel like I’m using a clunky old hair dryer. I feel like I’m using something the Jetsons would use.


Many reviewers complimented how quiet the dryer is, with one saying, “little noise and gentle treatment on my hair makes this unit worth every penny.” According to the brand, the noise level of their Supersonic hair dryer is 77 dBA, which is much quieter compared to the 85-95 dBA range of most hair dryers you can find out there. Plus, it’s the quietest of the best travel hair dryers, according to Travel + Leisure testers.

Because it weighs less than 2 pounds and is designed without a ton, the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer is a great option for travel because it doesn’t take up much space and doesn’t weigh down your suitcase. With its 9-meter non-retractable cord, it’s not exactly carry-on friendly. However, if I’m going on road trips or extended trips where I plan to check in a bag, I’ll take it with me.


If you’ve also been waiting for this hair dryer to go on sale, trust us, you’ll be waiting a long time. If you’re already a Dyson owner with an air purifier, vacuum cleaner or even the Dyson Airwrap in your rotation, you’ll want to take advantage of this 20 percent discount for loyal fans and buy the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer ASAP.


At the time of publication, the price started at $344.
