Struggling to achieve a salon-finish quality with your at-home blowout? Here’s a solution—the new attachment for the Dyson Supersonic is simple and ingenious. With just a single pass, the attachment tames unruly frizz and smoothes flyaways. How? It’s all thanks to the Coanda effect, also known as the trademark technology behind the Dyson Airwrap.

Unfortunately for those of you who already own a Dyson Supersonic, the attachment is only available for purchase in a bundle for the moment, so you’ll have to purchase another hairdryer to get it. On the bright side? If you do, you’ll have two Dyson Supersonics!


3. Dior Beauty presents the new Sauvage film

The latest campaign from Dior is just as captivating as the last. Starring a guitar-playing, wolf-attracting Johnny Depp, the new campaign captures the rock-and-roll essence of the House’s Sauvage Elixir perfectly.

In the film, a lone Depp is found in the middle of the desert at sunset, stark against its cracked landscape, armed with little more than an electric guitar and a backdrop of amps. As he strums the opening chords to The Troggs’ ‘Wild Thing’, the wolves descend—surrounding the leading man with the energy of the fragrance.
