Are you using the right type of brush for your hair type? How about the right brush for the style you’re going for? Choosing the right one for the job can be a little overwhelming. Some brushes work best on dry hair, while others work best for wet hair. Then you have to consider the bristles. Some brushes have synthetic bristles and are best for drying hair quickly, creating a bouncy blowout or detangling. Boar bristles are best for creating a smooth, shiny look.
When you find the right brush, it can ease the styling process, whether you are blow drying, straightening, smoothing or detangling. To solve the hair brush mystery, we spoke to hair stylist Elah Paskowitz of Syrens Salon to decode six hair brushes and how to use each.
