Two years after the launch of their last beauty tool (the Airwrap, in 2018), Dyson just dropped a brand-new styling tool: Corrale

The company's version of the traditional flat iron may look like your average run of the mill straightener, however, its anything but conventional. Named "Corrale" as a nod to corralling (or gathering) hair, this baby has been seven years in the making. We’re not kidding. 

So, what’s the deal with the Corrale? Here’s everything you need to know. 

What makes this different from the straightener I already own?

Unlike other conventional straighteners, ceramic plates have been traded in for manganese copper alloy, which has increased durability, heat conduction and flexibility. What do we mean by flexibility? The plates literally move (or shift) to hug the hair as it passes through the iron. 

The Corrale also has three heat settings (330°F, 365°F  and 410°F) and can even be used cordless. Yup, unlike when using the Supersonic and Airwrap, you don't need to worry about cables getting in the way. It is important to note that charging takes up to 70 minutes and from full charge, you can achieve up to 30 minutes of cord-free styling.

Will this tool still fry my hair?

Well, if you use hot tools on the regular, you know the damage can add up. However, according to Dyson, the tool has a molding effect that allows you to evenly apply tension to heat and style the hair, which in return means you need to go over the hair fewer times. The result? Less damage. The brand also states that this specific design allows users to reduce heat styling damage by 50%. Pretty impressive. 

OK, how much does this guy cost?

Corrale retails for $499, which is definitely on the heftier side for a beauty tool. However, we would imagine (like the other two products) that this one will probably last you a long time. The straightener comes in two colors: black nickel with fuchsia and black with purple. 

All we can say is, it's about time.
