Choosing the right brush for the rigth job
Whether at home or behind the chair…your choice in comb or brush can dramatically impact the end result of any style. Here’s a quick reference guide to make sure you reach for the right tool for the job!
BRISTLE BRUSH: For all hair types. Boar bristle brush is ideal…gentle on hair, smooth’s the cuticle. Great for blowouts.
SYNTHETIC BRISTLE BRUSH: Avoid. Non-absorbent…don’t distribute oils or help condition hair. Can cause damage.
MIXED BRISTLE BRUSH: Ideal for normal or thick hair. Combine the benefit of boar bristles with nylon quills that help detangle coarse hair.
PADDLE BRUSH: Great for smoothing naturally straight hair…and for straight styles. Also great before flat ironing.
ROUND BRUSH: A must have for any blowout. Can create body and bend. Easier to control tension while styling…a key to a blowout that will last.
METAL BRUSH: A perfect tool to use as a finisher as they can smooth down a final look. Not recommended on wet hair as they can cause damage
VENTED BRUSH: Decrease blow-drying time by allowing air to flow through the brush. Great for creating and enhancing texture. Perfect for creating volume and as a setting brush.
WIDE TOOTH COMB: Ideal for detangling without damage.
FINE TOOTHED COMB: Perfect for styling bangs or to separate and smooth the hair will flat ironing. A matte comb is recommended as it gives you more control so your sections won’t fly around everywhere. Combs with shine won’t give you the grip you’re looking for.
