Hairstyling Tips: How to Use a Round Brush

Let’s start with the basics: The round brush is great for curling and adding volume. Seems easy, right? Then comes the actual application, and things might get a little trickier. How do you hold it? Do you spin it at the end? Is there really a use for it beside getting it stuck in your hair? Fear not, ladies! After this article you’ll be a pro in the art of round brush handling.

Blow Out – Using your round brush during a hair drying session is the perfect base for creating soft curl and volume.

  • Although a round brush is useful in creating volume and curl, everything works better with a little help. Incorporate a root-lifting spray into your routine. Apply onto wet hair before taking the blow dryer to your locks.
  • As you blow dry, use your fingers or a comb to tousle your hair for added fullness. When your hair is more damp than soaked, bring in the round brush to aid in the drying.
  • Secure the top 2/3 of your hair onto the top of your head. Use your round brush to sweep small sections of the hair left out of the clip, and aim your dryer so the air is hitting your hair from above. Roll the brush down the length of your hair from root to tip 4 or 5 times for each section.
  • For a flipped out look, place your brush on top of each hair section and aim your dryer so it is blowing on the underside of your hair. 
  • Continue these steps throughout the rest of your hair, unclipping layers as you go, until your entire head is dry.
  • For a more dramatic curl, focus on wrapping each small section of your hair around your brush, while blow drying from the top. Give each section a few short strokes before guiding your brush all the way from root to tip.
  • An unfortunate (but not necessary) side affect of blow drying can be frizz. Fight this hair-nemy by using the Remington Frizz Therapy Round Brush, for extra fly-away control.
  • Finish your styling off with some hairspray and you’re good to go!
