A Handy Little Hairbrush Guide
This entry was posted on January 11, 2008.
There are so many different kinds of brushes, you could really go nuts. But which brush is the best one to use? It all depends on your hair type, and your styling needs. Our friends over at BaByliss have it down to a science - literally, their brushes are so technologically advanced! We created this handy little hair brush guide based on the scoop we got from them.
There are many different types of brushes designed to produce different styling results to your hair. The brush you decide to use should reflect the type of hair you have and the end result you would like to achieve. Some of the most popular styles of brushes are the paddle, cushion, vent and round brushes, but which one is right for you?
Paddle brushes are flat and wide and great for creating smooth, straight styles on long hair.
Cushion brushes are available in many different sizes and feature a cushion that holds the bristles. These brushes are great for massaging your scalp and smoothing out hair.
Vent brushes are designed to create volume while blow-drying or air styling, since the openings in the brushes allow air to flow through resulting in quicker drying time.
Round brushes are used to add body and volume.
Smaller barrel brushes create curls, whereas larger barrel brushes straighten and smooth hair.
Thermal round brushes are designed to use while blow-drying, since hot air from the blow-dryer heats the barrel up and allows the hair to set and dry faster.
