You know how great it feels to leave the Salon with one of our blowouts. Your hair feels fabulous at this point and is in a state of style bliss. The round brush is like a magic wand that your stylist uses to create silky, shiny hair with volume in all the right places.
Ah, the magic of the roundbrush! For your long hair, medium hair, bob hairstyle, layered hairstyle, hairstyle with bangs…you need a high quality round brush! It makes all the difference to your at-home hair styling routine. What if you don’t know just how to use your round brush? We’re here to help. Let’s go over a few pointers:
Brush When Wet? OH NO!
First of all, when your hair is wet, never brush it. Hair is in its most fragile state when it is wet. Instead, use a wide-tooth comb to gently comb through your hair, starting from the bottom and gently working your way toward the top.
It’s All About Creating Volume
Next, apply any volumizing or other hair styling product you wish to use.This is a great time to apply a heat protectant as well.Start blow drying your hair using just your fingers.Concentrate on the scalp area.
Once this becomes a bit dryer, use a wooden paddle brush.Gently lift the hair from the roots to create volume.Work in sections. It’s a good rule of thumb to divide the hair in four sections and work on one at a time.
Now, Style with the Round Brush
After your hair is almost dry, pick up your round brush and get to work.Start at the bottom while working your way to the top.Place the round brush underneath a section of hair that is approximately one inch wide. To get straight hair, hold it taut while blowing it straight out.To add a bit of curl on the ends or volume at the roots, allow the brush to stay there for fifteen seconds before releasing.Work your way around your hair and voila! You’re on your way to beautiful hair.
