I shouldn’t have looked. Now I want one :(

My hairdresser already uses the dryers and they’re fab. Guess I’ll wait and see if they get these and try it out.  Surely the price will come down ...

That looks amazing but the price!

I want one too 😫 there is no way I could or would pay that much for a hair styling tool

If the hair dryer is anything to go by the price will come down, but then more people started buying the hair dryer with the price decrease and think it's wonderful, which it is. So more people might be willing to pay asking price this time around knowing how good the hair dryer is. Seems popular so far.

I'd consider it though I'd be using it more as a straightening smoothing tool that curling so probably don't need it.

Yep price is insane.

However. I have a Parlux hairdryer and a GHD straightener that are both around 10-15 years old and on their way out (finally!). I reckon they would cost me around $200 each to replace?

If this replaced both I think I could almost justify it :)

Hmmmm. Interesting. I’m going to start saving.

What are Dyson like for quality/longevity/warranty?  I’d want this to last me at least 15 years (like my current set up).  I don’t have a Dyson vac.

I have a 13 year old Dyson vac that hasn’t missed a beat yet. Not sure if the comparison is valid, though!

I doubt it. I think the price is what makes it more inciting! It’s a bit like the iPhones and Samsung phones. They certainly haven’t reduced their prices.

They did actually reduce the hair dryer from its original release price. It started at $750, it's now $499.

Do you recall how long it took to come down?  A year or more?

I reckon the folk that bought the hairdryer would be a bit devastated now that this has come out.  Way more bang for your buck with what it does.

Maybe that's why the price dropped?

Sorry it was $700 not $750. I don't remember, it was released Mid 2016 I got it about march/April this year for $400 with a code rrp then was $500 but not sure when the reduction happened. Somewhere between release and when I bought it.

I have the hair dryer and wouldn't be upset about this it's not the same thing. The hair dryer reduction would have had nothing to do with this. But I think this will sell better from the start since the hair dryer proved itself to be fantastic. I think people were originally hesitant to spend the money as it was priced so high, now I've used it, I'd have spent the $700 if I'd have known how good it was.

My daughter has very curly hair so she is interested if it can straighten that.
So far the demonstrations seem to show it can.

The hairdryer is actually very good.

I want this so bad, looks amazing!

They specify it smooths rather than straightens so I'm not sure how it would go on very curly hair though PP.

People with curly hair would be happy with that.
It is a never-ending fight and an improvement on ironing your hair under brown paper which is what I tried as a teenager.


The thing is it seems to do it much quicker and easier than other methods.

Curse you OP! I hadn’t heard of it and now I want it.

I have had great customer service from Dyson. I called because the motor on my 5 yo vacuum broke and I wanted a quote to repair. They were horrified it broke, picked it up by courier the next day, rang 48 hours later to say the whole engine was blown and to ask if I would prefer to have it repaired free of charge and delivered back within a week or have its purchase price credited towards buying a new one.

I have a Parlux and it was around the $300-$400 mark.  I would buy this for DD when / if the price comes down.

I saw this last week and I’m sure the price reported in the media wasn’t $700 then! I think I saw around $500. I desperately want it but will have to wait.

I was sceptical if it would work with frizz.

Just watched some YouTube vids and I want this so much.
They said it was $US 499. So it will be even more here I imagine with the exchange rate.

If they do drop the price after a year or so I am getting one if I start saving now.

There are going  to be so many people with great hair walking around.

Yep pretty sure it's $699 in Oz.

I just looked at the Dyson Australia website and they've sold out already.

Agree re people walking around with great hair :)

They have them at DJs and Myer.
Just in time for Christmas.

I want one but can’t afford it.

I notice on the Dyson website the reviews are from product testers in the production phase. Would this just be people that work at Dyson? If not, how does one become one of those. I’d happily be a product tester for any big name brand.
