Your Dyson Corrale™ straightener is engineered to be easy to use. To get started, watch our video guide or follow the steps below.
1. Unlock your straightener
Simply slide up the Lock button on the front of your straightener to open it.
2. Remove, rotate and replace the Flight-ready tag
Set the black arrow on the Flight-ready tag to the Home position to enable your straightener's controls. Your tag is tethered to your straightener. If your Flight-ready tag has four pins you can access support here.
3. Fully charge your straightener
To maximise cordless run time, always fully charge your straightener before using it. For further tips on how to maximise run time, see our section below.
4. Prepare your hair for styling
Your hair should be dry before you style. To get the best results, make sure it's also tangle-free.
5. Turn your straightener on
Press and hold the Power button until a battery icon appears on the screen.
6. Choose your temperature
The flexing plates enable enhanced styling with less heat for half the damage,1 so we recommend you try the lowest setting of 165°C first. If you feel you need more heat for your hair type, length or desired style, you can increase the temperature to 185°C or 210°C.
¹Thermal damage measured by hair strength, when creating an equivalent hair style. Tested on flexing plates vs solid plates.
Six tips to help maximise run time
1. For maximum run time, start styling from full charge.
2. Place in the dock between passes, to help boost charge.
3. Try slow, even passes for more battery-efficient styling.
4. If your battery is running low, connect the cable while styling for use in Hybrid charge mode.
5. For longer styling sessions use Hybrid charge mode. Start from fully-charged and keep the cable connected.
6. Once finished, connect the cable or place on the dock to charge – ready for your next styling session.
Hybrid charge mode explained
In Hybrid charge mode, your straightener adapts its power source. While heating up and styling your hair, it draws power from the battery and cable. Between passes, when the plates aren’t touching your hair, the cable charges the battery to help give you a longer run time. We recommend you fully charge between uses, so you’re always ready for your next style.
Engineered for balance in the hand
The Dyson Corrale™ straightener may seem heavier when you first pick it up. That’s because it is packed with advanced 4-cell lithium-ion battery technology, giving you maximum styling time and the thermal performance of a corded straightener. The battery’s placement is engineered to help provide balance in the hand. This helps give you maximum control while styling – without the cord.
Getting the look you want
Your straightener is engineered to create a range of styles. From a straight finish to curls, our video styling guides show you how to get the look you want. You’ll also find some helpful hints and tips on how to make the most of your Dyson Corrale™ straightener.
Flying with your straightener
International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations state that cordless straighteners can only be carried on an aircraft if the heaters are isolated from the battery. To meet these regulations, your Dyson Corrale™ straightener has been designed with a Flight-ready tag that disconnects the battery. You need to set the black arrow on the tag to the Flight-ready position before airport security and leave it in this position throughout the flight.
You can find a step-by-step guide to flying with your straightener below. For machines that have a four-pin Flight-ready tag, support can be found here.
🛈 Please note that regulations in Japan mean you will not be able to fly in or out of any Japanese airports with your straightener.
How to fly with your straightener
If your machine has a four-pin Flight-ready tag, please follow the simple steps here.
Airline approval is required if you're travelling with a battery-powered heat-producing product. Cordless straighteners are in this category, so we recommend contacting your airline before you travel. Explain that your straightener has a Flight-ready feature which isolates the heaters from the battery, to meet ICAO regulations. If you lose your Flight-ready tag, please click here. To use it, follow these five simple steps:
1. Before packing your straightener—remove, rotate and replace the Flight-ready tag with the black arrow in the Flight-ready position.
2. Press the Power button and check an aeroplane icon appears on the screen.
3. Close and lock your straightener, then place it in its Heat-resistant travel pouch.
4. Store in your hand luggage, not hold luggage.
5. Leave the Flight-ready tag in the Flight-ready position throughout the flight.
Assembling the charging dock
Simply push the two parts of the dock together until they click securely in place. Then connect the Magnetic 360° charging cable to the base.
Automatically turns off for peace of mind
If your straightener is left unattended with the power on for longer than five minutes, it goes into Sleep mode and the flexing plates start to cool down. After a further five minutes, your straightener turns off completely.
Styling with the cable attached
If you need to style for longer, you can use your straightener with the cable attached in hybrid charge mode. This will extend the run time but you'll still need to fully charge between uses, as you'll still be using battery power when styling.
Understanding the sounds
Your straightener makes a range of sounds to prompt you to take an action, or to alert you. You can find out more about the sounds in our video guide.
Turning off the prompt sounds
You can mute the prompt sounds by pressing and holding the Power and Temperature (–) buttons for more than five seconds. For your safety, you can't mute the sounds for Sleep mode or alerts.
Maintaining your straightener
We recommend regularly cleaning your straightener's plates to remove hair product residue. This keeps them working at their best. First, turn off your straightener and allow the plates to cool down. Then, rub them gently with a damp, lint-free cloth.
Frequently asked questions
Can I fly with this straightener, even though it's battery operated?
The Dyson Corrale™ straightener has a Flight-ready feature that disconnects the battery, designed to adhere to International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) regulations. Airline approval is required in advance if you're travelling with a battery-powered heat-producing product, so we recommend contacting them before you travel to let them know. Then you'll need to remove, rotate and replace the Flight-ready tag with the black arrow in the Flight-ready position before airport security. It needs to remain in this position throughout the flight. Please note that regulations in Japan mean you will not be able to fly in or out of any Japanese airports with your straightener.
Can I charge my straightener in different countries?
Yes. Your straightener has universal voltage, so you can charge it in countries with different electrical voltages to the one in which you purchased it. You'll still need to check if you need a travel adaptor.
I just bought my straightener and can't get it to work. Why is this?
If you haven't done it already, remove, rotate and replace the Flight-ready tag with the black arrow in the Home position. This will activate your straightener's controls. You should also fully charge your straightener before using it. If you're still having trouble getting started, you can watch the video at the top of this page, contact a Dyson Expert using live chat or call 0800 298 0298.
How can I maximise the run time of my straightener?
From full charge, your battery provides up to 30 minutes cord-free styling.1 A full charge takes just 70 minutes. To maximize run time, place your straightener on the charging dock when not in use and in-between styling sections. We recommend always beginning with 100% charge for maximum run time. You can find further tips to get the most from your straightener throughout your support page.
Why does my straightener feel heavier than what I’m used to?
It’s due to the advanced battery technology inside. Your straightener contains a powerful 4-cell lithium-ion battery that delivers the thermal performance of a corded straightener, cord-free. The battery placement has been engineered to provide balance in the hand, so even though there’s a little extra weight, you have maximum control while you style.
Will my straightener turn off if I accidentally leave it on?
Yes. If your straightener is left unattended with the power on for longer than five minutes, the heated flexing plates will automatically start to cool down. An alert will sound every 10 seconds and the Power button will flash. Pressing any button will re-activate your straightener. If left unattended for a further five minutes, your straightener will turn off completely.
Can I put the straightener in my bag directly after use?
If you'd like to store your Dyson Corrale™ straightener in your bag after use, first slide down the Lock button to secure the plates. Then place your straightener in its Heat-resistant travel pouch before putting it in your bag.
Do I need to carry out any maintenance on my straightener?
We recommend regularly cleaning your straightener's flexing plates, to keep them working at their best. First, turn your straightener off and wait for the plates to cool. Then, gently rub the plates with a damp, lint-free cloth to remove any stubborn hair product residue.
Can I turn off the prompt sounds my straightener makes?
Your straightener will make prompt sounds at times such as when it reaches your desired temperature and when it has low battery. You can mute the prompt sounds by pressing the Power and Temperature (–) buttons at the same time for more than five seconds. For your safety, you can't mute the sounds for Sleep mode or alerts. To turn the prompt sounds back on, press and hold the buttons again.
Can I change my straightener's temperature units?
Yes. You can view your straightener's temperature in Centigrade or Fahrenheit. Simply press and hold the Power and Temperature (+) buttons for more than five seconds to switch between the two. When your preferred unit shows on the screen, release the buttons.
