Pros noted that this helped “make the process faster.” It took approximately one minute to reach 94% of the claimed temperature.

The Dyson flat iron plates have flexible plates that don’t leave hair flat like traditional flat irons. This makes it more versatile than other flat irons with a flat surface.

It heats up to 95% in just 60 seconds, and maintains a constant temperature for 15 minutes. While the outside temperature remains cool, the Dyson’s plate temperature keeps the outside temperature at a comfortable temperature. In Lab tests, Dyson hair lost its straightness after being exposed to humidity for 24 hours. Our experts also found that it pulled hair more than other irons when styling.
