A round brush will create the look of a curling iron without the extra heat while adding volume and natural shine to the hair. A boar bristle round brush is ideal when styling curly hair, while a ceramic round brush would benefit those with wavy to straight hair. Learning the correct technique of the round brush may take practice. First, blow dry the hair until it is damp, taking out 80% of the moisture. Next, take small sections of the hair wrapping it around the brush from base to ends. Do this until hair is dry to achieve the desired look. When working with curly hair, only take out 50% of the moisture before blow drying in small sections with the round brush to straighten and smooth the hair.
This brush is most beneficial for hair longer than shoulder length that is not curly. It keeps the hair smooth while creating a straight and polished look. For best results, start by drying the hair at the base (first three inches). Once the base is dry, section the hair and place the brush underneath it. Dry the hair from the mid-shaft to the ends, pulling the brush underneath the hair while blow drying until the hair is dry.
The Denman brush is used on hair that is shoulder length or shorter to create a smooth, straight look. It may be used on straight, wavy, and slightly curly hair types. To use this brush, first dry the hair at the base (first three inches). Take sections of the hair and place the brush underneath, drying from the mid-shaft to the end. Continue these steps until hair is completely dry.
