We Test 4 Of The Trendiest Blow Out Brushes

Here's how to choose the right one for you.

Styling brushes are a hot topic right now. They’re flooding the market, and all have different functions. Lifestyle Expert Shoana Jensen breaks down the trendiest ones, including which you should be using.

Brush #1: The GHD Glide

The Pros:

  • Heats up very fast – great for getting out the door in a rush
  • Has a long cord
  • Not too heavy or bulky
  • Great for straightening

The Cons: 

  • Only one heat setting
  • Not good for curling or bending hair
  • Takes a few passes to get a smooth look

The Verdict:

This brush is definitely worth it for ladies on the go or who are looking for a quick straightening.

Brush #2: The Conair Hot Brush

The Pros:

  • Has a pretty long cord
  • You can choose your temperature – it goes up to 375 degrees!
  • Grips hair well, but also slips through hair easily
  • Great at getting a bend
  • Works quickly – meaning limited heat exposure

The Cons:

  • More inclined towards curling than straightening

The Verdict:

This is a great brush! If you’re looking for bang for buck, this is your brush!

Brush #3: Dyson Air Wrap

The Pros:

  • Not bulky – very easy to hold
  • Able to do curly hair and straight hair
  • Works quickly
  • Has a built-in volumizer

The Cons:

  • Very expensive
  • Have to pre-dry your hair until it’s damp
  • Slight risk of tangling if you have longer hair
  • Has a high pitch when turned on

The Verdict:

Though pricey, the Dyson Air Wrap is very diverse in use, able to do both curly and straight hair – and everything in between! If you’re looking for a good all-rounder, this is a good pick!

Brush #4: Revlon One Step

The Pros:

  • Decent cord length
  • Not heavy

The Cons:

  • Gets too hot – could cause hair damage!
  • Hard to hold because of the awkward shape
  • Definitely not for long hair
  • Hard to get it to straighten and curl effectively

The Verdict:

Unfortunately, it’s a no from Shoana. This brush just doesn’t do the job for enough different types of hair, and could possibly cause damage to perfectly healthy hair. However, two of my producer friends at Cityline love it so I asked them to provide their reviews.
