They brought us the Supersonic and the Airwrap, but now the folks at Dyson are breaking the mould again with the Dyson Corrale straightener. Taking over seven years to perfect at the Dyson headquarters in Bath, UK, this straightener is ready to be unleashed to the world in more ways than one. Corrale is cordless, making it a must-have for session stylists working on-location where access to power isn’t always convenient.
Thanks to the four-cell lithium-ion battery, you’ll get around 30 minutes of cord-free styling. If you need more juice, simply place the straightener on the charging dock for a full recharge in 70 minutes or use it in hybrid mode with the magnetic cord.
Dyson Styling Ambassador Damien Rinaldo says the Corrale is a complete game-changer for the industry.
“It took time adjusting to a cordless straightener and I notice myself over-lifting to accommodate for a cord,” Damien said.
Corrale also boasts years of research into the straightener’s patented flexing plate technology, which delivers enhanced styling with less damage. Dyson has developed complex manganese copper alloy plates, featuring a carefully balanced amalgamation of six metals to provide optimal flexibility, strength and thermal conduction.
The tool’s must-have features are in the results. Other tools may cause hair to splay as the straightener reaches the bottom of the shaft while it passes through the hair, indicating that not all the hair is heated or styled evenly. Tthis can lead to over-styling to achieve the desired result. The Dyson Corrale straightener uses unique flexing plates that mould and gather the hair in one smooth swoop. It corrals the hair (hence the name) and, as a result, stylists have better control while minimising damage.
Founder and chief engineer James Dyson continues to explore the science of style in the goal of understanding what makes hair smooth and shiny.
“We discovered that if the plates could conform to the precise profile of the tress, then with each pass we could apply the correct tension to all the hair strands. This means that we get an enhanced style and without excessive heat damage. We simply do not need the heat that others apply,” said James.
The Dyson Corrale straightener has three heat settings (165°C, 185°C and 210°C). Intelligent Heat Control technology measures the temperature 100 times per second and adjusts any fluctuations or losses of heat.
On top of the cutting-edge technology, the straightener comes backed with Dyson’s rigorous testing. This bad boy has been dropped, submerged and chucked by engineers to ensure it can withstand the cutthroat world that is the salon floor.
The Dyson Corrale straightener Black/Purple for stylists is available in Australia from April 24th 2020.
