UMBERTO BEVERLY HILLS ROUND BRUSH –Â Cheap and cheerful carved wood handled brushes that combine boar with nylon to avoid pulling hair. I found this brush to be easy to use for blowdrying. There are small, medium and large sizes depending on your hair type. If you use the larger sizes, you can really add lift to your hairstyle, with a little spray, you will have body all day and night.

When you’re done, if you go over the ends one last time, youll get a nice looking professional blow dry.
