The Dyson Flyaway Attachment, which sold out in the UK within hours of being released, has launched in Australia.

Hailed as a game-changer by reviewers online, Dyson has once again changed the hairstyling game, creating a Flyaway Attachment which promises to banish flyaway hairs and give you a sleek finish on any hairstyle.

Anyone who’s curled their hair or straightened their locks will know that frustration you feel when you step outside and those pesky baby hairs spring up ruining all your hard work.


The Flyaway Attachment simply clips on to the Supersonic hair dryer (a must-have for any beauty fanatic if you ask us!) and using airflow instead of heat, it tames unruly strands.

It harnesses the Coanda effect, which was first found in the Dyson Airwrap styler, by attracting and lifting longer hair to the front, while pushing flyaways through the tress and out of sight.

How it works

If you already own the Supersonic hairdryer, you can switch out the attachment on it for the new Flyaway Attachment.

Then, you simply hold the attachment close to your hair and run it down the length of the tresses until you reach the end.

There’s no need to use a brush, which causes flyaways in the first place, and you shouldn’t have to style your hair afterwards either.

It works the same if you have already styled your hair with a curler or straightener. The attachment is also great for banishing flyaways at the front and back of your head when you put it up into a ponytail.

How much it costs

The new attachment costs $99 if you want to buy it individually, however if you’re looking at purchasing the $599 Supersonic hair dryer, it will be included in the box.

What hairdressers are saying

Jen Atkin, Dyson Global Styling Ambassador and celebrity hairstylist raved about the new attachment, saying: “I think we can all agree that flyaway frustration is real!

“Nothing feels as good as that salon blow dry finish. The trick to tame annoying flyaways is a core skill for a stylist. However, we want our clients to now be able to get that same glossy finish at home. Dyson’s latest attachment does exactly that – it allows smooth seekers to get a super sleek finish, on their own, not just from the salon.”
