Everything You Need to Know About Dyson’s New Supersonic r Hair Dryer


Dyson fans, you’re about to be very happy. The much buzzed-about global technology company has just unveiled its smallest (30% smaller), lightest (20% lighter), and more maneuverable hair dryer, geared to deliver precision for professional styling without heat damage. Meet the Supersonic r!

Accompanied by customizable attachments for all hair types, the Supersonic r is paired with three precise airflow settings and four heat modes, with ergonomically placed controls within a thumb’s reach and LED indicators on the handle. The dryer includes a new technology streamlined heater, the Dyson Hyperdymium motor, and intelligent Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) sensors in each attachment, which communicate with the hair dryer, automatically adjusting the motor and heater to deliver optimal airflow and temperature for each attachment.

The Dyson Supersonic r attachments include:

  • Powerful Air Attachment: Produces high-velocity airflow to dry hair quickly
  • Pro Concentrator: Focuses air precisely where you need it
  • Gentle Air Attachment: Helps reduce frizz and define curls, coils, and waves
  • Smoothing Nozzle: Engineered to de-tangle and lengthen hair as it dries
  • Flyaway Attachment: Attracts longer hairs and hides flyaways on finishes styles, using the Coanda effect

What’s more, Dyson’s streamlined flow heater technology is the first Dyson curved heater in a hair dryer, made of symmetrical foils which form a suspended track. This track delivers efficiency, through maximum exposure to the airflow, with minimum impact on the flow rate and performance. This high-pressure air through the unique curve heats the airflow more evenly, with no hotspots. This means that the user experiences increased evenness of temperature even when using attachments, a higher temperature for styling, and drying hair fast, with no heat damage.

Ergonomically designed in a revolutionary “r” curve stemming from years of stylist feedback about strain-related injuries, the Supersonic r hair dryer provides an agile and adaptive experience that responds to real-world demands while delivering superior styling results. The Supersonic r hair dryer weighs just 325 grams (excluding the cable), which is less than the weight of a bottle of standard 400ml bottle of hairspray. The shape allows professionals to effortlessly reach where it is normally hard to reach for control and comfort.

The Dyson Supersonic r dryer will be available to purchase by professional stylists only starting in April 2024. Sign up for the waitlist now!
