Home / Hair / Hair Care 101: How to Choose the Right Hair Brush

 

Your lipstick, contouring and wingled eyeliner game may be on point, but that doesn’t mean you should completely ignore your tresses. Even if the beauty routine you’ve used for years has sufficed thus far, there’s always room for improvement. Selecting the right hair brush is half the battle when it comes to a killer hairstyle. Be sure you’re armed with the best variety in order to achieve the luscious locks dreams are made of.

Short Hair
Vented brushes are perfect for short hair as they allow heat from a blowdryer to pass through the bush, directly to your hair. With this, hair dries faster, making styling a short ‘do an absolute breeze.

Medium Length Hair
If you’re a medium length gal, a round hair brush is your best bet for getting your desired shape and body. This type of brush can also curl as hair is being styled.

Long Hair
Paddle brushes are great for long hair, so stock up on these bad boys to get the ‘do of your dreams. Cut down on damage and unnecessary pulling by ditching that tired old bristle brush for one more fitting.

Straight Hairstyles
Sleek, straight hairstyles benefit from paddle brushes, though round brushes may also be a good idea for making hair taut. Be sure to avoid curling your hair unintentionally. This may happen if you curl hair around your brush while blow-drying.

Curly Hairstyles
A round brush is the #1 choice for curly hairstyles for its bristles and all-around ability to wrap locks. Small round brushes work best as they hold the ability to wrap hair, resulting in a structured curl.

Wet Hair
Wet hair should be treated delicately, and while a comb is ideal, brushes with wide space bristles, padded bristles and flexible bristles can also do the trick.

Fine Hair
Gals with fine hair benefit from brushes that add volume. Round brushes are ideal from giving hair that extra oomph it needs to make for a fresh and fabulous ‘do.
