Dyson Corrale straightener: Dyson unveils new cordless straighteners engineered to protect your hair from damage

The cordless Dyson Corrale straightener goes on sale today (10 March) priced at £399

 Dyson has revealed its latest hair styling innovation – the Dyson Corrale straightener.

Building on its knowledge from the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer, and the AirWrap styling tool, the Corrale combines Dyson’s Intelligent Heat Control technology with new patented “flexing plates”.

Designed to reduce the styling time and pressure on the hair, which in turn helps reduce damage from excessive heat, these plates are made from a manganese copper alloy consisting of six metals that help make the plates more flexible, stronger and better at conducting heat. They have been engineered to be 65 microns – the width of a human hair – and are lined with tourmaline, which helps ionise and smooth the hair.

Whereas traditional straighteners combine heat and tension to straighten the hair, the flexing plates of the Dyson Corrale mould to shape and gather the hair. This is said to give you greater styling control without relying solely on heat.

Plus, because the plates adapt to the hair, they apply tension more evenly meaning you don’t have to repeatedly run them over the same strand multiple times to get the desired effect. This greater control and a lower reliance on heat means that damage is reportedly reduced by half, according to Dyson’s claims, compared to standard straighteners.

The Dyson Corrale straightener has three heat settings – 165°C (330°F), 185°C (365°F) and 210°C (410°F) – which Dyson says allow you to tailor the settings to suit your hair type and style. Each of these temperatures are kept constant thanks to a sensor that sends measurements of the hair (100 times a second) to a built-in processor, which in turn regulates the heating element. 

Beyond these features, the Corrale’s biggest standout feature is the fact it’s battery-powered and cordless. It is still possible to plug the Corrale into the mains and use it like a regular pair of straighteners but the cordless feature – possible because of Dyson’s legacy of battery technology used in its cordless vacuums – means you’ll get 30 minutes of on-the-go use for a 70-minute charge. This 30-minute range will vary depending on usage and your hair type. 

What’s more, the Corrale has a Flight Mode meaning it’s suitable to be taken in cabin luggage the majority of airlines. 

The Corrale is the culmination of seven years of research and development with hair scientists and engineers, and £125 million investment into hair laboratories and technology. It’s no wonder then that the Corrale is launching at an exceedingly high price of £399. This shouldn’t come as surprise if you’ve ever bought, or considered buying a Dyson product in the past, but it makes the Corrale more than twice the price of the £189 GHD Platinum Plus, which is already seen by many as being out of reach. 

It’s on sale now in the classic Dyson Fuschia/Pink design, and a purple colourway, from Dyson.
