Getting the hair of your dreams is rarely ever easy, and I should know—I’ve literally tried it all-on clients in the salon, editorial, runway or myself. But, every once in awhile a game-changing tool comes around and makes us think twice, like the straightening brush. This is not the hot comb of your childhood, with a bad reputation for causing burns when too close to the scalp. The straightening brush tames curly or textured hair in one swoop, functioning as the best of a brush mixed with a hot tool. I was asked by NewBeauty to share my favorite straightening brush and a few tips to using it on myself and/or models hair.
I have used quite a few different heated straightening brushes, and the Brush Crush is by far the most efficient. I love that it has a heat control so you can tailor it to fit you or your clients’ needs: lower temps for fragile or damaged hair and higher for more resilient waves.
After brushing through a heat protectant like WATERFALL by R+Co roughly blowdry with your concentrator on- each section of your hair- Making sure you get your entire hairline. (Air-dried hair works too:) Take a section of hair the length of the brush (about one-inch wide) and brush from your roots down to your ends. Make sure to hold your ends taught and create a bit of tension, which will ensure even heat distribution and seal in smoothness.
Brush from the roots on up and toward your mirror. Let it cool while still holding those ends straight up in a mohawk to set for runway-worthy volume that will last all day.
