Brush Up on Hair Brushes
As a hair stylist, you may know that the type of brush you use can affect the way your hair feels and is styled. Do your clients know that, though? Brush them up on the 411 about hair brushes by telling them the brush(es) they use at home is more important than they think. A client may be stuck on using one particular brush for everything from regular brushing, to blow drying and styling, but little may they know that different brushes offer different results. That’s why we carry a variety of hair brushes here at OneSourceBeauty.com to suit your professional and client’s hair and styling needs. Here’s what each brush does for the locks.
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.
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 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 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.
