Barrel Hair Brushes

This type of brush is made specifically for hair straightening needs. Use a barrel hair brush when you blow dry hair in order to get better, straighter results. A boar bristle barrel hair brush is an even better brush choice as it helps maintain control when blow drying. Boar bristle brushes also help to distribute hair’s natural oils resulting in a perfect shine. Barrel brushes are great for at-home or salon use and are created with thick or thin bristles depending on the type of hair it is used on.

 

Paddle Hair Brushes

The paddle hair brush is the most common go-to brush. The shape of a paddle hair brush is strategically created to perfectly fit to the head, offering smooth results with every stroke. While each paddle hair brush is made just for great results, though, it is important to decide which type of paddle hair brush works on specific hair types. Boar bristle paddle hair brushes work well with long, frizzy hair. While a cushion hair brush is better for short-to-medium hair with less or no frizz.

 

Vented Hair Brushes

Vented hair brushes are most commonly used for adding lift and volume to hair as the openness of the brush design allows for air flow to the hair, resulting in a quicker blow dry time. Vented hair brushes also give hair movement and help to easily style hair after it has been curled. These are great hair brushes for those with medium-to-thick hair, because they help decrease tangling.

 

Hot Air Hair Brushes

Hot air hair brushes are unique in that they can be described as a brush and blow dryer in one. Hot air hair brushes release heat so that you can essentially dry and style hair at the same time. It also frees up your second hand that would usually be using a brush or blow dryer so hair can be done one-handed.
