Fact: the Dyson Corrale Cord-Free Hair Straightener is one of the most popular hair styling tools on the market. However, it’s definitely not the most affordable one. Luckily, Dyson has just rolled out its epic Black Friday sale, taking a good chunk of ££ off its best-selling products across haircare and home devices, including (you guessed it) the Corrale.
That’s right, for a limited time only, you can now save a whole £100 when shopping the Dyson Corrale hair straightener, which is a solid 25% saving compared to the original price (£399). Take it from us: Dyson products rarely ever go on sale, so this deal is truly an exceptional one. The best part? The deal is also active across multi-brand retailers such as Boots, Sephora and John Lewis, meaning you can take advantage of other awesome Black Friday beauty deals while you’re at it too. Race ya?
Let’s be real, in the vast world of hair straighteners, the Dyson Corrale reigns supreme. Its innovative flexing plates let you style your hair while using less heat, resulting in significantly less damage in the long term. But that’s not all: the device is also designed to reduce frizz and flyaways, all while boasting cord-free technology and intelligent heat control.
It works on all hair types, and after having tested the device multiple times, we can confirm that it really does – from fine, straight hair to coarse, 3B curls. Plus, because of the flexible plates, the Corrale is great for curling too since it doesn’t leave that dreaded kink.
Need a bit more persuading? Here’s what happened when we put the Dyson Corrale to the test.
Back in 2020, the brand that revolutionised vacuuming, as well as the at-home blow dry, revealed the Corrale – a hair straightener with patented flexible, micro-hinged plate technology, thermal camera analysis for intelligent heat control and a 4-cell lithium-ion battery. Translation? The challenge to innovate beyond the air of their primary expertise has been completed – on paper, at least.
But as we all know, ‘on paper’ doesn’t always translate to ‘in practice’. Corrale’s unprecedented technology gives rise to a lot of promises in terms of its performance, including a reduction of heat damage, quicker styling, and smoother results, so there’s a lot to live up to. Here, we put the new Corrale to the test…
The Corrale is sleek, lightweight and thoughtfully designed. It can be used cordless and corded, which is welcome news to anyone who has ever been stuck next to a plug waiting for hours while their electrical devices charge up. The product comes with a display-style charging dock, as well as a magnetic charging cord, so you can choose how you charge – use the dock to display the device in all its glory, or the magnetic cord for a more space efficient alternative. The Corrale is available in two colours (purple with black accents and silver with pink accents), both as elegant as each other.
The last major breakthrough in hair straightener technology came with the introduction of ceramic plates in 2002, allowing a smoother styling experience and considerably less damage to the hairs. Now, the Corrale takes things to a whole new level thanks to its flexible manganese copper alloy plates, allowing superior control and heat conduction. The plates are able to mould into shape, hugging the hair and providing greater control to preventing the side-splaying that occurs with traditional straighteners. With traditional straighteners, strands escape out of the sides of aa you glide down, and you end up having to go over the same section over and over to get all the hairs. This repetition exposes hair to more heat and, therefore, more damage, whereas the Dyson plates eliminate this problem.
Corrale has three heat options, 165, 185 and 210 degrees Celsius, catering to absolutely all hair types, and allowing a higher degree of user control. However, the main point of difference is that the flexible plates mean that the Corrale requires far lower temperatures to deliver the same results. Even the coily, coarse hair can styled on a medium heat – something traditional straighteners would never be able to offer.
The four cell lithium-ion battery means that the Corrale provides 30 minutes of cordless styling – great for on-the-go touch ups – and charges fully in just 70 minutes, a marked improvement from other cordless straighteners on the market. The other great thing about the Corrale is that it can be used corded and cordless, so you can charge it while styling your hair at home, unplug it and take it with you on your adventures. Genius.
We witnessed the Corrale working its magic on a range of hair types. The Corrale straightened fine hair on the lowest heat setting, cutting down styling time significantly with each section only needing one stroke, and smoothing the 3B curls impressively only needed the medium heat setting.
