Brushing your hair one hundred times before you go to bed is an activity that is not practiced anymore, but, for most women, it is still very important that their hair looks good and feels great. Using the right products for your hair is of course very important to achieve this, but the type of brush you use is also essential to having a head of soft, shiny, healthy hair. Knowing the best brush for your hairstyle will give you that crowning glory as well as boost your self-esteem sky high.
Women go to a hairstylist expecting to come out of the salon looking like a million dollars. The hairstylist who has the correct equipment, especially really good hairbrushes, will be able to produce this result with all clients that come in. Of course this means that the clients are going to be satisfied and will keep coming back. We have listed some of our all time favorite professional hair brushes.
Round hairbrushes are versatile, can be used to give curl and definition to a hairstyle, as well as straighten the hair. If you have shorter hair, you can use the smaller round brush to curl certain parts of your hair and, if you have longer hair, the larger round brush can be used to either curl the ends of your hair, or straighten it. We love the Denman Head Huggers Hair Brush.
The paddle hairbrush is wide and flat, and is really great for straightening medium to long hair, smoothing the hair as it lengthens. This style of brush is not recommended for hair that is layered too much, as it is used to make the hair lie flat. Try the Denman Medium Boar Bristle brush for amazing results.
As it name implies the vent hairbrush has a hole in the center, allowing air to pass through the brush, which reduces the drying time. Apart from this brush boosting the volume of your hair, it also detangles your hair as well.
The half-round brush usually comes with quills, and is great to use on wet or dry hair. This is the perfect brush to carry around with you for those quick touch-ups.
The cushion hairbrush is used to achieve the same results as the half-round brush. It is made for medium to long hair, can be used daily, and gives a really great massage while brushing as well.
Sculpting brushes are great for backcombing short hair to give it volume. If you have a short, textured hairstyle, then this is the brush that will give your hair movement. The sculpting brush is best for short hair, round layers, and textured outlines.
Expensive, but very popular with most hairstylists, is the Mason Pearson paddle brush. With a combination of boar and synthetic bristles, this brush allows for gentle brushing and faster drying time as well. This is definitely one of the best salon quality hairbrushes around.
Having a range of brushes will allow you to achieve that style you are looking for. You will be able to style your hair according to your mood, the occasion, or to simply experiment with different styles. However, to ensure that you have the best brush for your hairstyle, make sure to buy good quality brushes that will last long, treat your hair gently and properly, without scratching your scalp.
