What We Like About The Dyson Airwrap Styler

The Dyson Airwrap Can Be Used As a Hair Dryer

Unlike any other stylers, the Dyson Supersonic is the only product that features a magnetic hair dryer attachment on the market. That is to say, it is not only a heat styling tool that gives your hair more glamour, but also a blow dryer that helps you get ready for styling in minutes.

You can throw away all your unnecessary hair tools by getting a Dyson Airwrap, the all in one styler is perfect for people who want to simplify their styling process.

Since it’s hair dryer too, the Dyson Airwrap comes with more airflow settings while styling. You can see from the specs table above that the Dyson Airwrap has a separate speed setting while the T3 Whirl Trio only has heat settings.

But, please note the Dyson Airwrap does not blow dry your hair as quickly as the Dyson Supersonic hair dryer. For more information, please see the comparison between the Dyson Supersonic vs. Dyson Airwrap Styling Set.

The Dyson Airwrap Has More Styling Possibilities


Besides a hair dryer attachment, the Dyson Airwrap contains more types of styling accessories than the T3 Whirl Trio.

If we take the Dyson Airwrap complete set for an example, then you can see that the Dyson Airwrap has several more styling attachments such as firm styling brush, smoothing brush, and round volumizing brush.

You can create straight relaxed hair or define your wavy hair just by changing the attachments, which is something that you can not easily achieve with the T3 Whirl Trio styling wand.

What’s more, thanks to the Coanda Effect, the Dyson Airwrap allows you to utilize the gentle airflow to achieve a natural and voluminous look without applying too much heat to your hair. Compared to other regular curling wands, your hair will look less stiff if you opt in the Dyson Airwrap.

Smart Heat Control

The Dyson hair tools are considered to be upscale products as they have intelligent temperature technology.

The Dyson Airwrap styler will detect the styling temperature 40 times per second to deliver constant heat that won’t accidentally burn your hair or cause damage to the internal components.

While the T3 Whirl Trio also meets the Dyson specs in this respect. The T3 Whirl Trio will not cause any safety problems since it features a one hour auto shut off function, and theT3 Whirl Trio is as smart as the Dyson Airwrap because it is equipped with a T3 Singlepass technology that maintains a consistent temperature throughout styling. So in this respect, we feel that these stylers are truly at a tie at the moment.

What We Like About The T3 Whirl Trio Curling Wand

As a Curling Wand, The T3 Whirl Trio Is More Professional

Despite the limited types of styling attachments, the T3 Whirl Trio is the winner for people with curly hair in practice.

The curling wand from T3 has more curling barrels than the Dyson Airwrap. And each barrel has a different size and shape to let you create more various waves and curls efficiently.

Additionally, the T3 Whirl Trio curling styler can be way hotter than the Dyson Airwrap. The T3 Whirl Trio’s claim that the temperature can reach 210 degrees to 410 degrees. And you have more precise heat settings ( 5 different levels of heat) than the Dyson Airwrap.

Hotter curling wand can help you to create curls fast and the curls can last longer. Although the heat will inevitably cause some heat damage to your hair, the ceramic surface glide is going to reduce the damage significantly. Nevertheless, you should always remember to use a heat protectant before using the curling wand.

The T3 Whirl Trio Curler Has Dual Voltage Feature

Regarding portability, there’s no competition. It is not because the T3 Whirl Trio is more lightweight, it is because the T3 Whirl Trio is more travel-friendly with the dual voltage function.

The dual voltage feature is important to travelers because countries use different voltages. You can not use the Dyson Airwrap that purchased in the states in Europe & Asia.

But it is not a problem for the T3 Whirl Trio curling wand. You can just adjust the voltage and it will work properly in any country.

The Price of T3 Whirl Trio Is Lower

The Dyson Airwrap is currently available starting at $499.99. You can buy one from most online hair tools resellers, including the Dyson official Store. The T3 Whirl Trio’s sales price is $300, which is relatively cheaper than the Dyson Airwrap.

Final Verdict

Overall, both the Dyson Airwrap and the T3 Whirl Trio curling styler have meticulously interchangeable designs and decent quality.

The Dyson Airwrap’s better than the T3 Whirl Trio and any interchangeable tool competitors when it comes to styling tools varieties. And its gentle airflow and premium technologies will give you the most comfortable user experience while styling. The only problem is that you have to pay a high price for that.

The T3 Whirl Trio curling wand set is an advanced styler that is specialized in curling all types of hair. It is more effective to create waves and curls with this product. But it is a hair tool that is specially made for curly hair, you can not add other styles to your strands with it.
