Good hair days are easier to come by when you have a brush that works with your hair, not against it.

The ‘right’ hair brush is different for everyone. Brush length, bristle type, whether the brush is round or flat - all of these things make a difference. If you want smooth, shiny, or bouffant hair, a number of elements should be taken into consideration when making your personal selection.

Here are 8 hair brushes that prove a good hair day is only a brush away.

Aerin Large Gold Tone HairbrusH - $85

This all-natural, Italian-made hair brush works with all hair types to both soften and nourish, taking care of even your most damaged hair cuticles. The rubber base minimizes static and the specially crafted teeth help to distribute the natural hair oils from your roots, down to your ends.

Christophe Robin Detangling HairbrusH- $108

If you have been searching for a detangling brush that doesn't leave your scalp sore and tender, then you will adore this handmade French one. It’s soft bristles gently undo knots without tugging at your strands (which causes dull hair and split ends).


Oribe Large Boar Bristle Round Brush- $185

Conceived from the brilliant mind of celebrity hairstylist Oribe Canales, this porcupine brush is ideal for frizz-prone hair. Its natural tips stretch out strands to fully pull through and undo any tangles, instead of tugging at them. It even comes with a sectioning pin hidden in the end, to help with parting and styling.

Oribe Medium Mixed Bristle Flat Brush- $226

Hairstylists love blended brushes because they’re the best of both worlds. You get the benefits of using a natural fiber, plus the detangling powers of synthetic bristles. These mixed bristles work on a variety of styles too, but if you want to save your blowout, work with a round brush.  Synthetic bristles are great for super thick hair as they don't create as much static.

Raincry Condition Large Pure Boar Bristle Paddle Hairbrush- $115

This paddle brush is not only apt for detangling but it also helps smooth out your follicles. Made from the highest quality of boar hair, it might be a little stiffer than what you’re used to but it will outlast almost any brush.


Raincry Medium Pure Boar Bristle HairbrusH - $64

This ergonomically designed brush is specially crafted to help you get the best at-home blowout. The spiral design distributes heat evenly across your tresses, which means less heat damage, less drying time, and all-round smoother hair.

R+CO Round brush 1- $75

A round brush like this is perfect for styling hair quickly. The sparse teeth roll over your strands easily without snagging, thus creating less tension, less frizz, and more volume. This one is ideal for smoothing unruly hair or rolling up your ends to add lift and volume. It’s perfect for crafting low effort looks like this Parisian style.

R+CO Round brush 5- $95

Effortless hairstyles are making a comeback and body is in, so get a brush that won’t flatline your tresses. This rounded brush will give your hair more shine and bounce, without disrupting its natural volume. It’s perfect for women who like a good wash-n-go, especially curly heads. It’s wooden barrel heats up to help dry hair faster.
