Still looking for a fast, insanely easy and cheap solution to make your hair look great, even if you just rolled out of bed? I know the feeling…I’ve been there: busy morning at work, travel time, conference or event in the afternoon and maybe plans for dinner – if I was really lucky, that is. As a professional business woman, fresh out of college, I was always under pressure to have impecable looking hair and no time (or cash, let’s face it) to waste at the hair salon. Around that time, I received as a present a rotating hot air brush, a Conair Styler and loved it! It was a life changer…
I’ve taken some time on this blog to share my epiphany about how easily you can achieve a great hairstyle at home, in under 15′ and to assemble a comprehensive list of hot air brush reviews of the latest gadgets out there. Hope you’ll enjoy it!
Hot air brush reviews – my selection of top hot hair brushes
From straightening to curling, waving or adding volume, hot air brushes are versatile, affordable little miracle tools, loved by stylists, that can easily become your best friends in the busy mornings.
A hot air brush is hair styling tool that combines two styling essentials in one device: a styling brush and a blow dryer. It speeds up and simplifies the process of DIY hair styling, so it’s no surprise that hot air brushes have become one of the hottest beauty care items on the market the past few years.
From hair care brands like Conair to makeup giants like Revlon, manufacturers of all kinds have come up with their own renditions of the hot air brush. The latest hairstyling gadgets that took the DYI hairstyling niche by storm are the hair straightening brushes – ceramic brush iron straighteners that combine the heat power of straightening irons with the intuitive hair brushing technique, ensuring effortless results in half of the time.
With so many options out there in the market, choosing the best product for your hair needs can be confusing. How do you sort the good ones from the bad ones?
Doing your research is vital. Compare specs of products, including their wattage, barrel sizes, bristles, and grip. This will give you an idea of the kind of hot air brush that is best suited for your hair.
Reading professional and actual customer reviews on the product is also helpful. You’ll easily find both types of hot air brush reviews online. As for actual user hot air brush reviews, some of the best sources are retail sites such as Amazon and Ulta, as well as review sites such as consumerresearch.com and epinion.com.
Hot air brush reviews can give you an insight into the capabilities of a hot air brush. Every company would make their product look good and enticing. It is the role of hot air brush reviews to show whether a particular product lives up to the expectation it has set for itself or not. Reviews can answer questions such as:
• How fast can the product dry your hair?
• How well does it perform with a thin hair vs. with a thick hair? With a short hair vs. long hair?
• How long does it take to curl or add wave to your hair?
• How long does the product last? Is it durable?
• How easy is the product to use? Does the handle fit well in your palms?
It cannot be ignored that opinions on a product may vary. It’s not uncommon to find a product get shares of 5-star and 1-star ratings. Sometimes, some customers receive a defective product, leading them to give it a negative feedback. Nonetheless, the ratio of high to low ratings reveals to you how a particular product performs in general.
We’ve also seen many cases where a customer gives a particular product negative hot air brush reviews because of wrong expectations. Some customers think that hot air brushes are one-size-fits-all kind of product. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. For instance, a person with a long, thick hair bought a brush with a small barrel and 2-heat settings.
When the brush fails to meet their expectations, they give the brush negative feedback. You have to understand that some brushes are designed for long hair, and some for short hair. If you have a thick hair, then don’t purchase a low temp hairbrush and expect that it will perform well.
Again, understanding hot air brushes and how they work through research is very important. This will help you find the best styling tool for your hair.
