Where you can buy the Dyson hair dryer in Australia
The Dyson Supersonic is already available for pre-order online. Here are the stockists and the prices.
The beauty world rejoiced a few months ago in April when gadget pioneer Dyson announced that it had plans to revolutionise the hair dryer.
The device simply known as the Dyson Supersonic was intended to be available to Australian consumers at the end of 2016. Well, it seems Christmas has come early, so to speak, and the Dyson hair dryer will be available from 9 July 2016. That's just 19 days away – not that we're counting or anything.
In addition, the Supersonic is already available for pre-order for those who don't want to miss out and wish to reserve theirs now.
If you want to snap one up on the 9 July release date, you better live in Sydney or Melbourne. The device will be sold exclusively at David Jones Elizabeth Street, Sydney and Myer, Melbourne City.
Those outside the two capitals will have a chance to grab their Dyson Supersonic the next day when it becomes available nationwide at selected Myer and David Jones stores. It's yet to be officially confirmed which stores will stock the Dyson Supersonic™, but high-profile product releases generally appear in flagship stores or the biggest and most trafficked stores. Your best bet is to head to the biggest store in your town, but we will keep you posted on which stores you should head to on 10 July.
If you'd rather not risk your local DJs or Myer not stocking the Supersonic, pre-ordering through the Dyson website is your best bet. With free shipping, it's likely more convenient than heading in-store to buy it anyway. If you pre-order, metro areas can expect delivery on 11 July and regional areas a few days after.
If you're not sure if you want to drop $699 on a hair dryer and would be keen to try it out first, Dyson has announced a creative partnership with Renya Xydis, the founder of luxury-chic Valonz. Valonz stores will be the first salons in Australia to use the Dyson Supersonic. An appointment at Valonz isn't exactly cheap, but it's still a great way to try before you buy. Especially if you were due for a hair appointment anyway.
The Dyson Supersonic was first unveiled in Tokyo in April. Using intelligent heat control, the Supersonic™ protects hair from heat damage unlike traditional dryers. With a fast, focused airflow and a much quieter motor, the Supersonic is engineered for balance, convenience and practicality.
James Dyson said “Hair dryers can be heavy, inefficient and make a racket. By looking at them further we realised that they can also cause extreme heat damage to hair. I challenged Dyson engineers to really understand the science of hair and develop our version of a hair dryer, which we think solves these problems.”
The Dyson Supersonic is powered by the signature Dyson V9 digital motor – the smallest, lightest and most advanced digital motor. A glass bead thermistor takes the temperature 20 times per second to ensure there is no risk of heat damage to the hair. The data from the thermistor is transmitted to the microprocessor which will adjust the temperature accordingly. Another element that sets the Dyson Supersonic apart is the three-times-amplified, high-velocity jet of air. The Supersonic™ created a 20-degree angled, focused jet of air which is ideal for drying and styling.
