Detangling Brush
Hair type: All
Best for: Detangling wet and dry hair

Wet Brush Original Detangler Brush $9

Meet your go-to for unruly hair both pre and post-shower. Wide-tooth plastic bristles help untangle hair even when it’s wet and in its most delicate state.

Paddle Brush
Hair type: All
Best for: Detangling dry hair

Swissco Bamboo Paddle Brush $10

A paddle brush is a fan-favorite for its ability to work through tangles quickly and efficiently with its flat, wide surface. For thick hair, opt for sturdier bristles that can run smoothly through textured hair without breaking its natural wave or curl pattern.

Boar-Bristle Brush
Hair type: Fine to medium hair
Best for: Styling dry hair

Mason Pearson Pure Boar Bristle Pocket Brush $120

Natural boar bristles help stimulate the scalp and distribute natural oils to gently condition hair from the root to the ends. Gently glide a boar bristle brush through heat-styled hair for a soft, high-shine wavy look.

Ceramic round brush
Hair Type: All
Best For: Blowouts

Moroccanoil Ceramic Round Brush $26

This is our best-kept secret to an at-home bombshell blowout. A ceramic round brush heats up when you use it with a hair dryer, molding your locks into shiny, bouncy curls sans a curling iron.

Teasing brush
Hair Type: All
Best For: Adding volume

Drybar Texas Tease Teasing Brush $18

Hello, volume! This versatile brush is the easiest way to lift roots and add texture to updos and ponytails. Plus, it has a pointed end to help you section hair when styling.

Speaking of hair, guess what hair colors are taking over this spring? Hint: go light.
