Using a boar brush to blowdry your client’s hair is a game changer when it comes to not only cutting down your blow dry time but also getting the hair silky smooth so that you do not need to grab a flat iron afterwards.
The boar bristles in combination with a nozzle on a hairdryer, will help direct and close the cuticle to smooth out their hair and either make it lay sleek and flat or have volume, depending on your over directing.
Here are some tips to ensure you are using the Ensemble Hair brushes correctly to get the best results on your client!
1. Use the Ensemble DeTangler to brush out the hair and rough dry to 50%.
2. Pre-Section the hair into 3-4 sections using your Ensemble Clips to keep your sections clean that you are blowdrying and so you can blowdry without interruption.
3. Decide which Ensemble Hair Round brush would best fit your client’s texture. The Alto is best for Medium - Thick density and Wavy to Coarse textures and the Treble is best for Fine - Medium density and Straight to Wavy texture.
4. Using the round brush you will rock the brush along the scalp and into the section of hair to create some tension.
5. Direct the nozzle at an angle and not directly on the bristles so you are not directing too much heat onto the hair itself and the boar bristles.
6. Over direct the section up to make sure you are continuing that tension in the hair for smoothing.
7. If you feel too much tension in the brush due to tangles then gently pull out the round brush and brush out the tangles before you reposition to continue.
8. Use your pinky finger on your blow dry hand to hold the section of hair while you reposition the brush.
9. When you get to the hairline, in a vertical position, rock the brush against the scalp into the hair and over direct the section towards the face to smooth out stubborn hairline frizz or curl.
10. As you finish each section you can spin the round brush to have a bend at the ends or you can use the Flat to create a flat iron effect for the sleekest look.
