I get lots of questions about how I style my hair, and I finally got around to taking some pictures. I’ve mentioned the Dyson Corrale Styling Iron several times since I got mine last fall, and it’s Today’s Special Value at QVC so I figured there’s no better time to show you how I use it!
This is truly the only styling iron you need. I gave my flat iron and my curling wand to my daughters after I got the Dyson Corrale. It’s what I use for both my straight and wavy looks. Yes, it’s pricey, but as with most things Dyson, it is in a class unto itself.
What makes the Dyson Corrale Styling Iron unique is the flexing copper alloy plates that shape around the hair. I have very thin, fine hair that is prone to heat damage, so I’m extra careful with the styling tools I use. This technology provides better results with less heat than other styling irons.
I also love that you can charge this styling iron and use it cord-free, or if you forget to charge it, you can plug it right into the wall and use it that way.
You can also plug the Magnetic Charging Cable into the back of the Charging Dock so the styling iron charges when it’s sitting in the cradle.
I usually keep mine plugged into the outlet inside my vanity drawer, but if I forget and it’s low on charge when I go to style my hair, I can place it in the Charging Dock so it charges every time I set it down. This usually keeps it going long enough for me to get through my hair, and then I turn it off and leave it in the cradle to fully charge while I go on with my day.
Okay, so here’s how I use the Dyson Corrale to straighten and curl my hair.
How I Straighten My Hair with the Dyson Corrale
First of all, it has two heat settings, and I always put it on the medium setting, which is 350 degrees. It’s all I need to get results, and as I said above, I’m always careful about not damaging my fine, thin hair with heated hair tools.
To style my hair straight, all I do is pull the styling iron through each section of my hair. I work quickly, because I don’t want it to look too flat; I just want to get rid of the frizz.
The end result is something like this. This is how I wear my hair most days, but sometimes it’s fun to add some beachy waves, and I use the Dyson Corrale for that too!
How I Curl My Hair with the Dyson Corrale
When I want a wavy look, it’s a little more of a process, but it still only takes about 10 minutes. I usually take it into two sections. I twist and pin the top half of my hair up and out of the way, and I curl the bottom half first. Then I go back and do the top half. I always curl my hair away from my face, but you don’t have to. It’s purely a matter of preference.
You just place the styling iron in the section of hair, towards the root, turn it a half turn, as shown below, and then pull straight through to the end. I know, it sounds crazy, but it actually curls your hair!
The slower you move the iron through your hair, the more curl it will give. I tend to start slow at the top, and then pull it faster as I move down the length of the hair, so the ends are practically straight. If they look too curly, I just use the styling iron on the ends to straighten them out.
This styling iron rarely goes on sale, but for today only, QVC has the Dyson Corrale Multi-Styler Straightener with Storage Case marked down to $459.99. It’s still a splurge, for sure, but every little bit helps!
In addition to the Charging Dock and Magnetic Charging Cable, it comes with a Heat-Resistant Travel Pouch in a Prussian Blue Presentation Case, perfect for holiday gifting.
Speaking of holiday gifting…
More Beauty Deals at QVC
I also want to tell you about the tarte Mistletoe Maracuja Juicy Lipstick Trio. This is a $63 value on sale for $35!
This boxed gift set comes with these three gorgeous shades. They feel like a lip balm, but you get the intensity of color of a lipstick.
Here they are swatched on my hand. I love that bold Pink Berry for dressing up and going out, and then the Rose and Soft Beige are great everyday neutrals.
I keep the Rose in my purse, so I can freshen up my lipstick when I’m out and about.
I’m wearing the Rose right here, in fact. I also love how these come in a cute little holiday-themed gift box, but you can also split them up and give them individually, if you prefer. They make great stocking stuffers.
And QVC also has that ELEMIS Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash & Pads Home & Away Set on sale right now.
You get their gentle foaming gel cleanser and the exfoliating resurfacing pads in a full size set for home, and a travel size set for your carry-on bag. It’s a $144 value for $95.
These textured pads are so convenient because they’re pre-moistened and sitting in the Lactic Acid and Probiotic Ferment Complex, so all you have to do is remove one and place it on your face texture side down. Then smooth the pad all over your face in a circular motion.
It lifts away dead cells and gently exfoliates, and my face always feels smoother and cleaner after I use one of these. Best of all they’re gentle enough to use every day.
And the Dynamic Resurfacing Facial Wash is what I use after the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Cleansing Balm for a double cleanse that is second to none. Oooh, they have that in a Home & Away Set too!
This face wash uses Tri-Enzyme technology to promote the skin’s natural cell renewal cycle to smooth and refine while sloughing away dead skin cells that dull the complexion. And like the resurfacing pads, it’s gentle enough to use daily.
Also, ELEMIS and tarte products contain no sulfates, phthalates, parabens, petrochemicals, mineral oil, or talc; and they’re cruelty-free.

The Corrale and the Tarte set are on my wishlist lol. I did just order the mixed metal cuff bracelet and earrings from your VE collection. I’m really excited because I didn’t get to order when it launched, and it’s such a great deal now. Enjoy your weekend!
Awesome! I hope you love them!
