The simple things

This would be a simple first guide to choose your first round brush, but if you are already one of those who know the advantages of blow drying with it, we can go into more detail with the different diameters that there are and with which of them to achieve the best finish

The 17mm diameter is ideal for Pixie haircuts. It helps us both to shape if we work the upper area selecting small sections or providing a natural volume by applying air to the root of the hair.

The 23mm diameter is perfect for shorter bob styles, either to provide texture with a wavy effect or to blow dry without adding volume and rounding the ends inward.

Get the most out of your medium hair with the 28 mm diameter of your round brush. You will achieve a hairstyle that is full of naturalness or if you want, focusing on waves in the middle and ends as if they were taken from a professional iron.

The 32 mm diameter is ideal for making waves in hair that go past the shoulders. It is the most versatile and very easy to use for both smooth and wavy finishes.
