Maintaining your hair dryer

This filter information is for stylists who own the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional with a two-part filter. If your hair dryer has a one-part filter, the filter cleaning process is different.

It’s important to clean your filter regularly

This protects your hair dryer's internal components from styling products, clippings and dust, which can prevent your hair dryer from performing as it should. So it's important to clean the filter regularly, or when the white LED lights alert you.

Our Dyson Experts are on hand to answer any questions you may have, and show you how to get the most from your Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional.

Frequently asked questions

How does the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional differ from the consumer model?

The Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional is designed specifically with professional salons in mind, with a filter engineered to meet the needs of a busy salon. It comes with a Professional styling concentrator, whereas the consumer model comes with a standard Styling concentrator. The Professional edition has a longer cable (3.3m).

Why does the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional have a different filter to the consumer model?

In busy salon environments, contaminants such as hairspray and dust are drawn into the filter by the powerful Dyson digital motor V9. To protect the technology inside the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional, we’ve engineered a depth-loaded filtration system with a 2,600μm woven mesh. Interestingly, during our testing, we identified eight different salon environments around the world. We have engineered our filter to be able to cope with this.

Can I purchase both the Gentle air attachment and Wide-tooth comb attachment for use with my Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional?

The Gentle air attachment comes in the box when purchased in all countries except US and Canada, and is also available to buy separately. The Wide-tooth comb attachment is available to buy in most countries.

Does the Dyson Supersonic™ hair dryer Professional require any maintenance?

To maintain performance, it’s necessary to clean the filter regularly. You'll be prompted by the flashing white LED lights. You can clean your filter using the instructions in the filter cleaning leaflet that came with your hair dryer, or by using the video and guidance on this page. If the three red lights remain illuminated after cleaning, turn off the hair dryer and contact a Dyson Expert.

Why are the lights on my hair dryer flashing?

If the red or white LED lights are flashing continuously, this could mean your filter needs cleaning. Clean your filter using the instructions in the filter cleaning leaflet that came with your hair dryer, or by using the video and guidance on this page. If the three red lights remain illuminated after cleaning, turn off your hair dryer and contact a Dyson Expert.
