  • Paddle brush: Good for long hair or getting hair dried quickly.
  • Vent brush: Good for short hair, men's hair and creating volume. Can also be use for blowing out fringe.
  • Denman brush: Good for straightening out all textures. Also good for blowing out and correcting "cowlicks".
  • Round brush: Great for creating volume or waves.
  • Mason Pearson or boar bristle brush: Good for smoothing, up dos and ponytails
  • Wet brush:  Good for brushing out extremely tangled hair.
