    #文波带你看新闻学英语# 最近朋友圈里刮起了Dyson的大风,没错,这个最初以吸尘器闻名的英国品牌,继吹风机之后,又开始在美发届搞事情了。
    这次的主角是一款自动卷发棒,号称卷发黑科技不能让女朋友看到Dyson Airwrap styler. 关于这款自动卷发棒也是褒贬不一,有将它视为神器的,也有觉得它鸡肋的。今天就来跟小编一起看看纽约时报(NYT, The New York Times)的这篇报道:
    Dyson Targets Hair Beauty Market With $500 Styling Tool
    LONDON — British vacuum-cleaner maker Dyson is making a second push into the high-end beauty market with a $500 hair styling tool that it has engineered to create curls, waves and smooth blow dries without extreme heat.
    vacuum n. 真空;真空吸尘器;空间 adj. 真空的;产生真空的;利用真空的 v. 用真空吸尘器清扫

    这里顺便给大家普及几种刘海的说法:
    1. 英式 - fringe
    2. 美式 - bangs
    3. iPhone X 齐刘海 - notch,本意:凹口,刻痕,等级
    [外媒用notch指代iPhone X屏幕上方的"刘海"设计]

    The Dyson Airwrap Styler harnesses a phenomenon known as the Coanda effect, whereby a high-speed jet of air attaches itself to a surface, to curl, wave or smooth hair, Dyson said.
    harness v. 利用;套;治理;驾驭;披上甲胄 n. 马具;甲胄;日常工作;降落伞背带;挽具状带子
