Along with a powerful, high-wattage hairdryer, a round brush is my secret weapon hair tool. Second to my prized all-boar bristle Mason Pearson, a round brush helps smooth and straighten my frizzy hair while creating bounce and shine. The key is to finding the perfect one has to do with size and grip. After spending 15 minutes every other day blow-drying, you'll become more intimate with yours then you ever imagined! Below are a list of my top three high performance round brushes. Do you have a favourite brush?
- The Frederic Fekkai Large Round Brush (£44) works great on all hair lengths. I use on my crown and fringe because it's small and creates amazing resistance. The more tension that you have between your hair and your brush, the smoother the result. It's also great for curling the ends and adding volume to the roots.
- ghd Anti Static Brush Size 3 (£18.75) has an over-sized head that works wonders to create natural-looking waves. The handle has a comfy grip and the bristles are coated with a natural ionic compound that makes your hair shiny and static-free without getting tangled causing unnecessary breakage. Victoria Beckham, Naomi Cambell, Jennifer Aniston and Beyonce Knowles are also rumoured to fancy this brush!
- Lastly, I adore this S Factor Surreal Ceramic Straightening Brush XL from Tigi (£7.95). The bristles are soft and the squishy grip is tops. It never slips out of my hand and it holds my hair in place once it's wrapped around. Combine all of this with the ceramic core and I only need to dry each section once — it's heaven!
