ROUND BRUSHES: ROUND BRUSHES may be used to style hair, making them suitable for use on the scalp as well as the ends of the hair. I have compiled a list of ROUND BRUSHES on the market. ROUND BRUSHES are the go to styling brush.
What do I look for in ROUND BRUSHES? First, I look for an ergonomic handle and a ROUND BRUSH body that does not snag hair. But the most important feature in a ROUND BRUSH is the size. Shorter hair will need a smaller diameter ROUND BRUSH and longer hair a larger diameter ROUND BRUSH. A medium size ROUND BRUSH is perfect for general styling, straightening, adding waves and curls.
My go-to best of the best ROUND BRUSH: Olivia Garden Thermal Collection Round Brush Why? The Olivia Garden brush has bristles on the short side. I recommend this brush for shorter hair. I like the ceramic and ion technology. Overall a very good round brush
5 ROUND BRUSHES For Fine Hair Blowout
1. Suprent Blowout Thermic Ceramic & Ionic Round Barrel with Boar Bristle
I like the Suprent round brush because they got it right. It’s one of the best sellers and the reason is clear, it’s a good round brush that is not overpriced. It comes in 4 sizes so get the right size for your hair length and style. I would buy all 4 sizes so you have the right size for whatever curl or wave you want. The benefits are the ceramic barrel heats fast. Ion technology reduces frizzy hair conditions. Create fantastic curls and waves.
2. Osensia Professional Round Brush for Blow Drying
I like the Osensia round brush because it works great on all hair types. It’s good for short hair, medium hair, and long hair. The round brush comes in 6 different sizes for every hair length. Get a larger diameter round brush for larger curls and waves or a smaller diameter for tight curls and waves or short hair. The benefits are no snags and a solid round brush that will make you look fabulous. I recommend you purchase more than one, so you have the right size when you need it. Get the perfect blowout every time with this round brush. The biggest difference between the Osensia and the Suprent round brush is the Suprent comes in 4 sizes, so you have available to you, 2 more sizes in the Osensia. The Suprent also has a magnet at the end of the brush, and the Suprent has boar bristles and a nylon ball-like tip. It has two types of bristles. In my opinion, they perform equally well.
3. Conair Instant Heat Styling Brush
The Conair is a heated styling brush. So for just a little more money, you can get a heated brush that heats in 30 seconds. According to Stacey our hair care analyst, “I love the 25 heat settings. The benefits are the fast heat-up time, and the 25 heat settings. With so many heat settings, you can dial in the exact amount of heat needed without burning your hair.” You can experiment to find the right setting for your hair type. It comes in 2 sizes, get the larger one for larger curls and waves or if you have long hair. Conair outdid themselves on this one. Bravo!!!
4. Fixbody Round Barrel Anti-Static Hair Brush with Boar Bristles
The Fixbody is very close to the Suprent round brush but has a different handle. The bristles are the same in my opinion and both perform equally well. The Fixbody comes in 3 sizes, where the Suprent comes in 4 sizes. In my opinion, you really can’t go wrong with either. The benefits are the same as the Suprent. It’s going to come down to the size.
5. Uppercut Deluxe Quiff Roller
Few round brushes impress me right out of the box, but the Uppercut does. But beware, this brush is mainly for folks who have short hair. As with most small-diameter rounds brushes, if you have fine long hair the chances of you getting the brush stuck in your hair is high. According to Meesh, our product analyst, “So with that in mind if you have short hair and are looking for a lot of volume up-front then this brush is for you. The benefits are you get that huge lift upfront.” The brush has a lot of tension when it grabs your hair. I recommend it for folks who have short hair and want up-front volume.
According to Jon Alan Salons, in Nashville, TN, “Round brushes often come in two material options, ceramic with nylon bristles or wooden with natural boar bristles.“
My preference based on experience is a natural boar bristle brush with a wooden handle and comfortable grip. Plastic handles are OK if the grip is comfortable and it does not catch hair. But wood is my preference for durability.
