When doing your makeup, you know that certain makeup brushes can make all of the difference in your final look. After all, that’s why we tend to spend big money on quality makeup brushes. However, have you ever thought about how your hairbrush relates to your everyday look? While we constantly praise hairstyling tools such as straighteners and curling wands, the power of the everyday hairbrush is often overlooked. As it turns out, using the right type of hairbrush for your hair type makes all of the difference.
Today, MyCuts will be exploring the recommended hairbrushes based on hair type. With so many different types of hairbrushes on the market, how do you choose the one that works best for you? While this may sound like an unnecessary task to some, making the switch to a hairbrush that is specifically designed with people that have your hair type in mind could be one of the best decisions you’ve ever made in the world of beauty. Let’s get started!
The paddle hairbrush is a very common and popular type of hairbrush, and this makes sense as it is a great choice for all hair types! The paddle hairbrush is known for its ability to easily glide through the hair either while blow drying or just brushing in general. The wide and rectangular surface of a paddle hairbrush grants you the unique ability to have more control, but it is also known for its ability to smooth the hair. The consideration you should make in regards to paddle hairbrushes, though, depends on the type of bristles. If you have exceptionally thick hair, you should choose a paddle hairbrush with sturdier bristles, specifically those made of nylon.
With the revolutionary MyCuts software, the entire hair salon experience is easier for hair salons and their The detangling hairbrush is yet another type of hairbrush that is suited for nearly all hair types. Detangling hairbrushes are specifically designed to help with preventing breakage of the hair when it is in its most delicate state- wet. In most cases, detangling brushes are made with flexible bristles that are great for undoing knots painlessly without causing damage.
The round hairbrush is the best choice for those with medium to thick hair. If you’re looking for that fresh salon blowout look, a round hairbrush is the way to go. These brushes are typically made with either a metal or iconic barrel which can actually heat up when used with a blow dryer. In this way, the round hairbrush works very similarly to a curling wand. If you have especially fine hair, we don’t recommend a round hairbrush as the heat can damage your hair. Instead, those with fine hair should consider a brush that is gentler, such as a mixed bristle hairbrush.
While the wide-tooth comb is a fitting choice for most hair types, we especially recommend this hairbrush type for those with curly and wavy hair. Much like a detangling hairbrush, a wide-tooth comb is best used when the hair is wet and most prone to breakage. A wide-tooth comb is great for safely combing through wet hair, as well as for distributing leave-in hair treatments.
Finally, the vented hairbrush is best for those looking to do a quick blow dry. This is because the holes on the back of a vented hairbrush allow hot air to pass through easily, effectively speeding up the drying process. If you find that you’re typically rushing to get your hair dried in the morning, a vented hairbrush will work excellently regardless of your hair type!
