Your Hair Salon at Home
Cut down on the trips to a local hairdresser’s. Drybar is everything you need to dry and style your hair at home – and on a pro level.
This amazing brush delivers hot air like a blow-dryer and has the round brush structure for more volume. The 2-in-1 model is ideal for home use when you don’t have the time (or desire) to visit a professional. Those planning a vacation should seriously consider getting one too. This brush is nothing too complicated, and using it doesn’t require any special skills.
Drybar comes with the Ionic Technology that seals the cuticle, reducing frizz and adding shine. Don’t worry if your hair is fine or thin; this brush doesn’t burn it on the lowest setting like some others but is warm enough to do the job. Instead of damaging your hair, Drybar makes it look healthy and smooth.
The vents in this blow-dryer brush are placed strategically to ensure maximum airflow. This makes the blowout faster, helping you to quickly dry your hair and get it into shape before leaving home. Perfect for customers with an active lifestyle, this brush never wastes your time.
So Easy to Style
Drybar is designed with you in mind. It’s lightweight, easy to hold and maneuver. Some may find it a bit bulky for their travel bag, but overall, it’s a nice companion on your business or vacation trip. This brush is well-balanced, which makes using it much more comfortable. The only thing is that the controls are a little hard to reach single-handedly.
The tufted nylon bristles increase the tension and put you in full control of your drying/styling experience. Thanks to the oval brush shape and the edges that are gently curved, your hair volume goes up significantly. The best way to boost the volume at the roots is to place the brush horizontally and pull it upwards from the bottom to the top.
Does this blow-dryer offer various temp settings? Yes, Drybar is customizable in this aspect. The three settings it offers are cool, medium, and high. Thick, thin, medium hair – you decide which one works best for you. Even if your hair normally takes ages to dry, this brush can do it within a few minutes. Just don’t forget to towel-dry the hair to get rid of excess water.
All in all, Drybar is a must-have for hair drying and styling in the comfort of your home.

Created by a Hair Expert
With so many hair care products and tools on the market, choosing the best one for your hair is quite a challenging task. This is where we often seek expert advice or recommendation. And if those products and tools are created by a practicing hairstylist renowned worldwide and favored by celebs, you can rest assured you’ll get the best of what you want. Initiated by the reputed hairstylist, the John Frieda brand is a sign of premium hair care. And the John Frieda hot air brush is designed to deliver top-level treatment for your hair.
The tool is ergonomically shaped and thoughtfully sized for maximum comfort and convenience of use. The handle will fit neatly into your palm, ensuring a firm grim while all controls are located within easy reach for no-hassle one-hand use. The 1.5-inch barrel diameter is an optimal one both for smoothing, volumizing, or adding body to your hair and for making flirty loose waves or sharp curls. Meanwhile, soft resilient bristles made of nylon will easily glide through hair without tearing it or forming flocks and stiff plastic bristles with ball tips will comb the hair to prevent tangling. As a result, whether you have long thin hair or thick frizzy locks, you can use the John Frieda hot air brush on it without a hassle.
To continue, a 500-watt motor will deliver a forceful airflow to blow dry all hair lengths and types fast and do the styling in a maximum quick and efficient manner. More than that, the model boasts an advanced ion technology to produce negative ions that will tame the hair frizz and help seal in the precious moisture, thus, boosting the hair sheen and preventing the static.
No Heat Damage Detected
One way or another, when dried and styled, your hair is exposed to heat, which is especially damaging for exhausted, sensitive, lifeless, and chemically treated hair. Hence, it is essential to minimize the risk of damage by picking the brush barrel coated with high-quality material. And John Frieda hot air brush with a titanium ceramic coating is no slouch in this regard.
The combination of these two materials is rightfully considered to be the best one since it is meant to treat your hair locks maximum gently. While titanium heats up in a blitz, ceramics perfectly retains the heat and will evenly distribute it across the entire hair length. So, your hair won’t be exposed to heat for too long. Other than that, titanium works to heat up the hair from the surface without damaging the shaft while ceramic is very durable and will ensure a longer service life of the unit.
To resume, if you are not sure which hot air brush to choose, this John Frieda tool can be exactly what you need. Supported by extensive professional experience, this model is designed to match any hair type and let you achieve salon-quality styling regardless of whether you have any experience or not.

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer And Volumizer
For Straight and Smooth Locks
Even if your hair is not curly, to make it perfectly smooth and straight after washing, you need to stretch it while drying. And the more so if you have stubborn locks, soft waves, or flirty curls you seek to straighten up. This is where the Revlon One-Step hot air brush will come into play.
What makes this model stand out among the rivals and what makes it ideal for hair straightening is an oversized uniquely shaped barrel. Unlike other models with round brushes, the Revlon One-Step features an oval brush ideal for hair smoothing. Meanwhile, rounded edges will help you create some natural volume and, thanks to an enlarged 4.5-inch diameter, the brush is a real find for mid to long hair lengths. Meanwhile, for short hair, smaller diameter barrels are a better option. And if you do want to make curls, you can manually roll the barrel a little and hold it for a few seconds to achieve voluminous waves.
At 1100 watts, the model is on the higher end in terms of power. It’s yet another benefit for longer hair since it will blow dry long locks quickly and efficiently. Meanwhile, a ceramic barrel will ensure even heat distribution and minimize heat damage. In addition, the ion technology will work to eliminate static frizz and boost natural hair shine and smoothness. The brush also includes 3 heat/speed settings that will let you choose the right one for your particular hair type, allowing you to get the best results whether you have thin or thick hair.
The bristles of this hot air brush deserve a little more attention. They are able to smoothly remove tangles, thanks to their nylon pin and tufted design, which prevents them from catching on tangles and pulling your hair, while also adding volume to your hair from the roots, giving it a shiny and healthy look. What's more, the hot air produced by the brush provides extremely effective drying and brushing in a single stroke, making the process of drying and brushing much easier than it has ever been before while providing the best results you can imagine. The effectiveness of the drying comes from the fact that this brush allows for getting the heat closer to the scalp than it is possible with a standard hairdryer.
All in all, if you are a happy owner of long hair and need a tool to blow your hair with maximum delicacy and style your locks in multiple stunning ways, you can't go wrong with this hot air brush from Revlon.

Hot Tools HT1076
Smooth Styling, Perfect Heat
How about drying and styling your hair in just one touch? Hot Tools blow-dryer brush is all ready to make your trips to a hair salon a thing of the past. It’s very easy to use and fit for every type of hair.
Let’s start with the fact that this oval brush has smoothly curved sides to prevent hair tangling. Thanks to the rounded edges, it helps create volume from the very roots and up to perfectly curled ends. What you get is the full-volume, healthy looking hair in minimum time. Your friends won’t even notice the difference between this home styling and the work of a professional.
Now to the heat options that Hot Tools has to offer. While it can get really hot, it doesn’t burn your hair, and with 2 convenient heat settings, you can adjust it to your individual needs. Another tip is to thoroughly dry your hair before using the brush, which will help if you have really fine hair.
This blow-dryer brush is lightweight and can be easily taken on a long vacation trip. It comes with a long 8 ft. cord that swivels to prevent the annoying tangling. Feel free to maneuver the brush in every direction for creating a stunning hair look.
Keeps Your Hair Healthy and Stunning
Blowing out your hair with this brush is easy as a breeze. The heat spreads evenly, and the charcoal-infused bristles let you do the job in no time and achieve a smooth, silky finish. All you have to do is choose one of the 3 speed settings, and you’re fine. Make it slower for more elaborate styling – or pick the fastest option to dry your hair in no time before the guests arrive.
Hot Tools comes with the advanced ionic technology for reducing frizz and static. By keeping a neutral charge on the surface of your hair, this brush creates a smooth, well-conditioned look. Opt for natural beauty this season and enjoy the admiring glances all around you.
Does this brush pull your hair? If you try using it with more tension and at weird angles, you’ll find that it doesn’t damage or break the hair, which is a big plus in anyone’s book. The only problematic area is the joining between the barrel and the rubber grip. It sometimes catches individual hairs and pulls them. Still a better result than with many other hot air brushes.
Summing up, Hot Tools is a versatile product for hair drying/styling that’s very easy and comfortable in use.

What Is a Hot Air Brush?
The most common way to style hair is to combine two styling tools - a brush and a hairdryer. However, not everyone can handle both tools simultaneously as well as a professional hairdresser would, which makes the whole process quite challenging. Sounds familiar? Then you'll be happy to know that the market has a solution for you - a hot air brush. This ingenious invention has already gained recognition of a million women worldwide, and its popularity is only growing stronger. Resembling a conventional round-shaped brush, this tool uses heat to style hair. This heat is distributed through a number of tiny openings and goes directly to your locks, letting you straighten them, curl, wave or add volume, which makes it extremely versatile. Now the biggest advantage to using a hot air brush is that because this brush doesn't have sharp lines, it doesn't pull or tug the hair, allowing you to create a variety of different hairstyles without causing any damage.
However, if you do want to get rebellious or bouncy curls, you would probably still need to use some specialized appliances. Take a look at our selections of curling irons, straightening brushes, and flat irons and get a tool that fits your grooming needs.
What Features to Compare
First of all, you should pay attention to the shape, size and material of a styling attachment. The majority of hot air brushes come with round barrels ranging in size from 1 to 2 inches. Which one you need will directly depend on the kind of curling effect you'd like to achieve. Thinner barrels will let you make more intricate curls while barrels with a wider diameter will allow creating looser and more relaxed waves.
Furthermore, you can find hot air brushes supplied with additional styling attachments. They may include a bristle brush for roots lifting and a variety of combs with a different length of teeth suitable for straightening. Having these attachments at your disposal, you will get an option to experiment with your hair and create new hairstyles every day.
Regarding the material that the grill can be made of, you can find models with a ceramic coating, a tourmaline ceramic coating, titanium coating and those that combine the properties of several materials.
A ceramic coating is perhaps the most popular due to its excellent heat distribution quality, ability to maintain a constant temperature, and relatively low price.
However, if you are looking for something a bit more advanced, we'd recommend opting for a brush with a tourmaline ceramic coating. Unlike ceramic, this material is known to emit negative ions that work to reduce frizz, which means you will be able not only to curl or straighten your hair but also keep it looking beautiful and healthy.
When it comes to combo models, what distinguishes them is that they combine the features of several materials while being much more resistant to chemical and mechanical damage and temperature drops.
Power and Variable Settings
When choosing a hot air brush, you should also pay attention to such characteristics as power, temperature settings and control buttons. As far as power is concerned, everything is simple: the higher it is, the less time you will need to style your hair. On average, it may vary from 500 watts to 1000 watts and higher, so you can choose the most suitable one based on your needs.
Consider if the model has adjustable temperature settings. This is important because applying too high temperatures to the hair may lead to its damage and split ends. A good tool should have at least a few settings, letting you choose the optimal heat to suit different hair types.
Finally, if you want to get the most out of a brush, choose a tool with spin control. With this feature, you will be able to turn the barrel to whatever direction you need, thus, creating different curling effects.
Although most of these tools look similar, more often than not, they do offer some extra features for additional user's comfort.
You can find models with antistatic bristles, the tips of which do not heat up. With a brush like this, not only will you eliminate the risk of burning your scalp but also prevent your hair from tangling and ensure easy brushing. You can also find models with filters the main role of which is to prolong the lifespan of the built-in heating component.
Not least important is the length of the cord. Whether you're looking to curl your own hair or you are buying a brush for salon use, you need to make sure its cord is long enough to let you move comfortably. Naturally, the tool should also have an ergonomic shape and come with a pouch and some protection cover for safe transportation.
