After its US release over a year ago, the Dyson Airstrait will be dropping before the end of June according to the Dyson website.

Somewhat similar to the Dyson Airwrap, the Airstrait uses air flow technology to style and straighten hair. It bears a close resemblance to a wide iron hair straightener from either GHD or Cloud Nine, but instead of using high heat ceramic plates, it uses air. 

Like many other Dyson hair care products, such as the latest Dyson Supersonic Nural, the Airstrait claims to style without damaging the hair. The US site indicates that the styler uses “lower temperatures” on the Wet to Dry setting (80°C, 110°C, 140°C), and allows for hotter styling on the Dry setting (120°C, 140°C and 160°).

Even though the device was initially launched in the US in March 2023, it doesn’t look like we can expect any changes when it does hit Australian shores. Earlier this year the Airstrait became available in the UK, and the marketing materials haven’t changed from the first release.

Currently, the Airstrait retails for $499USD, or £449.99. Fortunately Dyson’s products don’t tend to follow the exact exchange rate, otherwise we would be looking at somewhere between $900-$950 for the device. Considering the international pricing of other Dyson products, we predict that the Dyson Airstrait will go for around $650 in Australia. We won’t need to wait much longer to find out though.

In the meantime, you can sign up to be one of the first to get the details direct from Dyson.
