What you see here are the top 10 hot air brushes for 2013. What they can give you is a versatile tool that helps give your hair volume and the option of natural waves and curls. No wonder the humble hot air styler is almost as popular as hair straighteners.


So, which hot air brush is best? Here are two best buys compared recommendations based on overall users’ satisfaction ratings:

A>

BaByliss 2777U Big Hair - User rating 9.42/10 – User Recommendation 1

BaByliss 2777U Revolving Hot Air StylerThe best of the bunch, based on overall user rating is the BaByliss 2777U Big Hair (User rating 9.42/10). The BaByliss 2777U has settings that enable you to find the right heat to suit your hair type. There’s even a cool setting that can help to set waves or curls so they don’t drop out.

The 2777U is both ionic and ceramic, meaning it can prevent frizzy hair and dry/set consistently on long hair.

It’s got a 42mm brush head which is useful for giving volume and body. It also makes for more natural, flowing waves and curls. You can use the rotate function to wrap a tress around the brush and release it once set.


Revlon 9371U Ceramic -User rating 9.09/10 – User Recommendation 2

Revolon 9371U Volume StylerAre you on a budget? Yes? Check out the Revlon 9371U Ceramic (User rating 9.09/10). It’s a no-nonsense hot air brush with a 19mm barrel, one heat setting and a tension release button to unwind set curls. Its dual voltage, too.

Nevertheless, as users attest, the 9371U has drying and styling power. The barrel’s ceramic coating gives consistent heat and avoids damaging hot spots.

 

 


Which Hot Air Brush Is Best? Here’s the Key Facts You Need

Overall Users’ Satisfaction Rating
The key question we asked in our hair-care user survey was this: “You’ve been using your hot air styler for six weeks or more.

Given your experience to date, how would you rate your brush overall on a scale of 1 (low) to 10 (high)? Think about you hair results, durability of construction, ease of use and value for money”.

We then took all these ratings for a given model and found an Overall Users Satisfaction Rating per hot air brush model.

A best buy hot air brush will have a score of 8 or more. A score of 7 suggests a good design marred by poor reliability. A score of less than 7 suggests a product has both design and reliability faults. It’s probably a waste of your money.


Hot Air Styler Type
Some rotating hair stylers actually rotate the brush clockwise/anti-clockwise. This can make it easier to create curls and then remove the brush once set. Other models have a simple tension release mechanism.


Barrel diameter
Most volume hair stylers have a 40-50mm diameter brush head. This is thought to deliver more natural volume, waves and curls. It also prevents the heated barrel from getting too close to your scalp. If you want a potentially tighter curl or need to get closer to the root then go for a narrower diameter brush.


Heat settings
Cool setting
Note hot air stylers are designed to give volume and curl to moist hair drying it in the process. Your hair needs to be towel or dryer dry.

Many models offer two heat settings one of which will be generally suitable for your hair. A few models also have a cool setting. This can help to “set” a wave, curl or tuck under.


Rotate setting
A hot air styling brush with a rotate setting gives you the option of tighter curls or looser waves.


Cord Length
You don’t want to be hunched over the plug. A cord length of 1.6m to 1.8m will enable you to sit comfortably on your bed, at a dressing table of standing before a mirror.

The BaByliss 2583BU is cordless; its heat derives from a safety gas bottle.


Hot Air Brush Ionic & De-Frizz Capable
Which hot air brush is best? Answer one that helps prevent frizzy or fly away hair.

An ionic hot hair brush produces a stream of invisible, harmless negative ions. The ion stream is designed to counter the static that causes frizzy or fly-away hair. This is caused by cold weather or using plastic hair combs.

An ionic hot air brush may be a useful beauty tool for women with fine or very long hair.


Ceramic coating
A ceramic coating may be applied to the heating barrel of the hair styler. This enamel ensures heat is evenly distributed around and along the barrel ensuring consistent results.


Promises to deliver
Body | Volume | Curls | Waves | Smoothing | Tuck Unders
With patience and experience a hot air brush will deliver natural body or volume to your hair. It’s also possible to achieve natural looking curls and waves.

Fine hair with a tendency to frizz can be smoothed and it’s also possible to tuck under the ends of longer hair or the line of a fringe.

Patience and experience is the key phrase. A hot air brush is not a quick option to use in a hurry.


Travel - Multi-voltage settings
Some of these volume stylers have a switch to enable them to run on different voltages in different countries. You may also require a plug adaptor.
