Find Your Hair Brush

Posted on 02/04/2014

Shop b-glowing.

With so many different hair brushes to choose from, it can be difficult to know which one your hair needs. We’re here to help! Learn about a few of the most standard brushes and which ones will work for your tresses.

Round Brush- This handy brush is used mostly with heat styling but can also be used on dry hair to achieve a rounded or soft look. A round brush, when used on wet hair with a dryer, works to pull wave or kink out of hair’s texture, and will also help smooth the cuticle for a polished look. While the round brush will relax the texture of your hair, you can still create roller-like body by using the cool shot button on your dryer while hair is wrapped around the barrel of the brush. 

Varying lengths in hair will also call for different diameters of the brush barrel. With all great beauty tools, practice makes perfect, and round brushing definitely takes a little practice! Try this Round Brush from Philip B.

Boar Bristle Brush – This brush is great for all hair types but especially those with finer, more delicate hair because the bristles pull smoothly to cause less damage and breakage. Boar bristles also work to distribute the scalp’s natural oils evenly through the hair to ends, resulting in healthy ends and less oily roots. They’re also great for smoothing and styling updos since the bristles are close together and soft enough to lay the hair down but not disrupt the style. Try this Boar Bristle Brush from Mason Pearson.

Wide Tooth Comb – You should absolutely have a great comb in your arsenal for detangling purposes. While the most natural instinct with a tangled patch of hair is to mercilessly attack it with any brush in arms reach, vow to take a little more time with your misunderstood mane. When using a wide tooth comb to detangle, start at the bottom of the tangle and working your way up. If you are trying to comb down through the tangle you won’t make much progress and will only push the knots down, causing more damage. So remember, bottoms up! We also recommend keeping one in the shower to help dispense conditioners appropriately to all your ends. Try this Wide Tooth Comb from Mason Pearson.

Style How-To: Sleek Ponytail

Posted on 04/25/2013

Shop Hair here.

Sleek hair is all the rage this season, and from what we saw at Fashion Week for fall/winter, this trend is not going away. One of our favorite sleek looks, that has withstood the test of time, is a pony tail.

We love a pretty pony because it's work-appropriate, great for all textures - including fine hair - and a great way to get a second day out of your already-styled hair. Ready to rock this runway-ready revolution? Here are step-by-step instructions for this easy up-do, and the products that will get you there.

1. Prep Your Mane
You perfected your hair for work yesterday, but 24 hours later it's looking a little … sad. Use Mason Pearson's Handy Mixture Bristle & Nylon Brush to detangle and soften your locks, in preparation for your pony.

2. Tame Your Tail
Run T3's Single Pass 1" Flat Iron over your ends and address any noticeable kinks in your 'do. Don't spend too much time on this step, as the majority of your locks will be gathered and unseen. One minute tops!

3. Smooth Your Strands
Add a couple drops of . Philip B.'s Anti-Frizz Formula 57 w/ Natural Lavender & Jojoba Extract this will keep frizz at bay and help you maintain your hairs health while it holds the style.

4. Flipping Out
Flip hair upside down, brushing repeatedly from root to tip toward the floor. Make a fist, and place it against the top of your head, this is where your pony will 'sprout' from.

5. Gather the Herd
Open your fist and begin brushing your hair into it, collecting it for the hair tie. Depending on hair length, you may have to move your fist towards the nape of your neck, in order to collect all your stands in the tie.

6. Rein It In
Using the hair tie of your choice, secure your now-collected hair. You may choose to leave the tie as-is, or you can create a more polished look by wrapping a thin segment of hair from your tail around the tie and securing it with a bobby pin towards the underside of your ponytail.

7. Polish the Pony
Now that your pony is in place, you'll want to tame baby hairs and frizz. Use Pop & Lock Crystallite Shellac by Color WOW along the hairline and sides to perfect your sleek look, enhance shine and tame fly-aways.

8. Solidify Your Style
Finish off this look with a pass of your favorite hairspray. We recommend Serge Normant Meta Luxe Hairspray to ensure hold and protect hair against damaging and dulling UV rays.

We hope you enjoy this styling 'how-to' from!
