The 3 Best Hot Air Brushes on Amazon
Wielding a blow-dryer is hard enough; throw in a styling tool and it’s near impossible. If only we had three hands. The next best thing? A blow-dryer/brush hybrid. Use one of these hot air brushes on wet hair and you’re bound to get a sleek, bouncy blowout in mere minutes. Here are three our team is loving.
Editors’ Pick: Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer
- Blow-dryer, brush and styler in one
- 2-speed/heat settings with a cool option
- Oval brush design smoothes while rounded edges add volume
Imagine going from wet hair to a smooth, voluminous ‘do in 10 minutes? One of PureWow’s editors credits this hot air brush with doing just that. “Normally it would take me 40 minutes to blow out my curly locks but with this tool it takes 10 minutes flat. It’s literally changed my life. It makes a frizzy blowout impossible, because the ceramic center heats up and sort of doubles as a hot tool, resulting in the sleekest finish. I also love how you can hold it in place for a few seconds and create volume on the top of your head, or create loose waves. It’s so inexpensive and portable—I pack it in my gym bag. Four of my curly-haired girlfriends have it, and everyone is obsessed!”
Best Value: Infinitipro by Conair Wet/Dry Hot Air Brush Styler
- Straightens, adds shine and controls frizz
- Infrared energy protects hair's natural luster
- 2-speed switch with a cool shot button
More of a pin-straight hair girl? This hot air brush is like a flat iron on speed. Instead of blow drying your locks and then taking a straightener and brush to them, you can do it all in one swoop. This model has a triple action styling system with tourmaline plates that make frizz near impossible. All you’ll get are smooth, shiny strands every single time. We love you DryBar, but you’ve got serious competition.
Splurge-Worthy: BaBylissPRO Nano Titanium Rotating Hot Air Brush
- Multidirection 2-inch barrel rotates to add volume and shine
- Ionic technology and anti-static bristles reduce frizz
- 3 temperature settings style all hair types
Blow drying your hair and using hot tools in general can be classified as an arm workout. With all the rotating and static holds, we should look like Michelle Obama by now. But for those of you who would rather keep your gym sessions and hair styling separate, this spinning hot air brush is a game changer. It can be used on wet hair to simultaneously blow dry and style; or dry hair to create a smooth, sleek look with extra body. The barrel actually rotates in both directions for a totally customizable look (with zero effort) every time. Oh, and with all the time you save, you’ll be able to make it to the gym for those MO-level biceps, too.
