Read Time: 3 min 51 sec

Choosing the right brush is just as important as choosing the right hair care product or heat-styling tool. Brushes are designed for specific hair types, lengths, needs and desired style results. Investing in a quality brush (or more depending on how many styles you want to create, and your hair needs!) will be worth it and your hair will thank you for it. Not sure how to choose a brush that’s right for you? Well, depending on what you are looking for (volume, lift, smooth texture…) we’ve outlined each brush below, from what it does, what type of hair will benefit from using it, and what results you can expect.

NEW! Detangler Hair Brush

Imagine riding with your friends in a convertible with the top down. Sounds fun right?! Now imagine all the tangles you’re going to have to deal with when you get home...doesn’t sound quite as fun. The Detangler Brush is here to save your scalp and hair from the typically uncomfortable process of getting rid of tangles and snarls. This little luxury is a great tool to use after your shower or for any situation when your hair is difficult to get through. Not only does it rid it of snags and snarls, its unique, curved shape, gets close to your scalp, gently massaging and exfoliating even the most sensitive scalp. Regular scalp massages rid hair of buildup and debris and are great for circulation and overall hair health. Boar and nylon bristles help detangle hair and distribute natural oils and products for healthy, lustrous shine without the frizz or flyaways. A non-slip, comfortable grip handle allows for easy manipulation and the vented design provides maximum airflow between your dryer and hair, speeding up that dry time.

Some customer love:
“It’s easy on the hair, this brush is perfect!”
“I love how it feels when I brush my hair.”
“The best brush to help detangle and so comfortable to hold.”

Best for (but not limited to): Fine to medium hair and sensitive scalps

3” Round Hairbrush

So much more than a traditional round brush, ours is designed with two types of bristles: nylon and boar. Gentle boar bristles will flow through hair while nylon bristles will hold your hair in place as you are styling and drying. A quick cool shot from your dryer, directly on the hair section held by the brush barrel, will add some extra body and hold. Whether your hair is short, shoulder-length or long, this 3-inch Round Brush will create lift at the root and add volume and body to ends and length. Comfort grip is easy on the wrists and hands when rolling and drying hair sections.

Some customer love:
“I can blow out my curly hair to straight very quickly!”
“This brush does what it says and makes my hair super soft.”
“I’ve had many brushes, but this one is the best.”

Best for: All hair types, and lengths beyond 3 inches

Triangle Brush

This small brush delivers big results! And it's unique, triangular shape helps grab short hair, without pulling, for easy styling. Perfect for creating volume and to round-out ends on pixie, bob or layered long hairstyles. The Triangle Brush is great for adding lift to roots and styling layers that frame your face, too! The flat edges of this brush work perfectly to pick up hair and create extra body and smooth hair while the nonslip comfort grip makes styling quick and easy. This is a great tool to use if trying to style fringe, face frame, or create a more curly style on long hair!

Some customer love:
“A great alternative to a round brush, great for volume.”
“I use this brush on my daughter’s thin hair!”
“I just cut my hair from long to short and this fits right against my head, gives me the lift I need.”

Best for (but not limited to): Shorter hair, shorter layers, fringe, and thin to medium hair.

Paddle Brush

This Paddle Brush is a great tool for any hair type, especially for those with thick, curly or more coarse hair. Another of our professional salon grade accessories, its wider, paddle shape covers a larger area when brushing shorter and longer hair. Its soft cushiony design and flexible, nylon bristles work together to reach and massage the scalp while brushing through more dense hair. The flat surface area delivers a softer, straighter style when blow-drying or heat styling. The non-slip comfort grip lets you control your styling experience. Gently brushing your hair has even been said to reduce stress levels, so keep this brush close.

Some customer love:
“I love the simplicity of this brush, simple yet so effective!”
“We have three in the house, one for me, one for my daughter, one for travel.”
“I like it for my tender head and sensitive scalp.”

Best for: All hair types and lengths
