It's crazy what a difference a good hair day can make. Still, no one has the time or money to live each day with salon-styled locks. Unless, of course, you do them yourself. Attempting professional-level hairstyling at home is no easy process, but if you are taking your tresses into your own hands, you should be equipped with the correct tools for achieving that perfect at-home blowout.
One of the biggest things to make or break your undertaking is the hairbrush. Not all brushes are intended for use with a hair dryer, and of those, not all were created equal. To streamline your shopping, we've rounded up the best blow-dry brushes for shiny, voluminous hair. Use one of these the next time you give yourself a blowout at home and you'll walk out into the world looking like you stepped right out of a salon. Here are the best blow-dry brushes to achieve your perfect blowout.
