In the Chair with Jawara
Dyson Global Styling Ambassador, Jawara Wauchope shares how the Dyson CorraleTM straightener has changed the face of fashion weeks, offering styling agility in uncertain times.
Fashion in London is universally celebrated for its unbridled creativity. Its brilliance can be attributed to the ability to be informed and inspired by new aesthetics and the historical, the capital's diversity and inclusivity. It feels like style in London has something to say, which is often the case at the capital’s Fashion Week shows. London Fashion week is known for demonstrating fresh young talent. The shows regularly represent concepts that have been unafraid to experiment with innovation, push style boundaries and acquire a form of expression.

Dyson x Erdem
Hair stylist: Anthony Turner
Anthony Turner called on the Dyson CorraleTM straightener’s ability to style anywhere, at any time with Erdem staging its SS21 show from the remote location of Epping Forest. Limited access to power when styling on-location is a common occurrence for many a seasoned stylist, yet armed with the full-performance, cord free capabilities of the Dyson CorraleTM straightener this problem is solved.
Fashion is one of the main pillars of Italian culture, with great heritage stemming from craftmanship and ateliers spread across the country. Renowned brands of the fashion industry were born in Italy – Versace, Valentino, Armani, just to mention a few – and Milan is considered the country's capital of fashion. Now, the city is investing in Fashion Week and young brands, as well as on renowned brands, to spread Italian culture around the world. Since the launch of the Dyson Supersonicᵀᴹ hair dryer in 2016, Dyson has made a name for itself. By partnering with some of the most influential hair stylists in the world, we aim to highlight the importance of hair health while creating beautiful and shiny hair, straight from the catwalk.
Dyson x Blumarine
Hair stylist: Anthony Turner
The inspiration behind Blumarine Spring Summer 2021 was colour and fun.
When talking about hair stylings, familiar women as well as schoolgirls from the 90s are the main inspiration source, used with a modern twist. With this in mind, lead hair stylist Anthony Turner created 7 looks, using Dyson Hair technologies, delivering professional performance in the demanding backstage environments of Milan Fashion Week.
A key look for the show was the bob style, with a side hair parting and dramatic flick at the end. The hair is prepared using the Dyson SupersonicTM hair dryer and Smoothing Noozle attachment to create a sleek and smooth finish.
The Dyson CorraleTM straightener came into its own for adding the look’s statement flick, used on the bottom of the hair to define the ends and set the curved shape in place.
For the longer looks, a more loose, messy wave was created to deliver a 90s grunge feel. This was achieved by bunching the hair section into a curl in the hand, then placing the section between the plates of the straightener and holding in place for a few seconds to lock in the style.
The Dyson SupersonicTM hairdryer teamed with Diffuser attachment was also ideal for enhancing the natural curl pattern for models with curly, coily styles, delivering even diffusion for defined curls and waves with long prongs that reach deep into the hair.
Dyson x N°21
Hair stylist: Ramona Eschbach
To establish a “new way in fashion” as Alessandro Dell’Acqua says when talking about the new Spring-Summer collection, the inspiration for the hair styling - as per the leading hair stylist quote, Ramona Eschbach - was grunge. After this pandemic, when everyone embraced their natural beauty, natural hair is at the very heart of the styling Ramona created and is all about soft waves.
Stylists set to work on the model’s natural hair running a brush through the sections to tease out any knots and tangles at the ends before by adding water or moisture spray in preparation to style. The roots remained untouched, with flyaways left to form part of the organic look.
The hair was then dried into a soft blow dry finish with the Dyson Supersonicᵀᴹ hair dryer and Smoothing Nozzle attachment. Waves were then created towards the mid to end of the sections by creating an S shape with each section, holding it in the palm of the hair and blow drying until completely dry, leaving the roots dry, but unstyled.
Widely regarded as the global fashion capital, Paris is home to the world's leading boutiques and brands. This centre of creativity and experimentation has attracted the best and brightest tailoring talent since the 15th century.
Once again, the city of light plays host to fashion week, with the top designers, hair stylists, media, and influencers descending on the French capital. When showcasing the latest trends and styles, Dyson technology is hard at work behind the scenes helping to bring the catwalk to life.
Dyson x Ralph & Russo
Hair Stylist: Larry King
With a tool that can truly be used from pool side to pool party, Larry King creates summer styles with the Dyson CorraleTM straightener for the Ralph & Russo show. Our latest professional technology offers cord-free capabilities to style anywhere, at any time and without compromising on performance. Whilst the Ralph & Russo show took place in a studio, this unique functionality makes the Dyson CorraleTM straightener the ideal partner for session stylists working on location.
Bringing out the texture of the model’s hair was key to the look sought by Lead Stylist, Larry King. He used the Dyson SupersonicTM hair dryer with Diffuser attachment to dry the hair, whilst setting in any existing movement. The Dyson CorraleTM straightener was then used to create messy movement around the hair line by clamping twisted sections between the tools unique copper flexing plates.
With a backdrop of Cuban inspired clothing, Larry describes the finished hair look as: “girls being in the sea or being in the pool and have just got the ends in the water, kinda got out and instantly been invited to the best beach bar and you throw that dress on and you look cool.”
Dyson x Balmain
Hairstylist: Sam McKnight
Hair health was front of mind for styling stalwart, Sam McKnight, Lead Stylist for the Balmain show. The Dyson CorraleTM straightener launched back in March 2020 and this was the first time Sam had used the tool backstage. Sam praise the control provided by the tool’s unique copper flexing plates that shape to gather the hair. This technology enabled him to achieve the signature striking, sexy styles of the show yet with half the damage – and quicker.
The tool’s pioneering microhinged plates flex to adapt to the hair section being styled, applying heat and tension more evenly to all hair strands in each pass, keeping them perfectly aligned and reducing the reliance on heat. Each plate is precision machined to 65 microns – the width of a human hair – and tourmaline edged to produce ionising properties that help reduce static.
