As much as we’d all love to wake up with a ‘do as voluminous and sleek as Kate Middleton’s, realistically, it’s just not going to happen for us non-A-lister folk. Instead, we have to laboriously pile on the volumising products and go in with the curlers and/or straighteners to attain that post-salon bouncy blow-dry. It’s a hefty process to say the least.

When it comes to hairstyling, we love tools that streamlines the process… so you can only imagine the excitement when hot air brushes finally got the revamp and technological advancements they so rightfully deserved. Dyson pathed the way with their Dyson Airwrap Complete Set, which inspired the likes of Revlon, John Frieda and other big-name hair brands to rethink the efficiency of their styling tools.

While hot air brushes have been around for some time, they didn’t exactly do the job as effectively as they could have done back in 2010 *cue before-school flashbacks of trying to tame that emo fringe*. Today, these must-have heated styling tools speed up the process and allow us to relish in salon-worthy hair – at home! Below, we’ve compiled a list of the best hot air brushes to get you well on your way to sleeker, shinier hair in a flash.

1. ghd Glide Hot Brush

Gone are the days of laboriously straightening your hair, as this quick ‘n’ easy styling tool smooths down flyaways while maintaining a neat and under control look.

Better still, the ions within the brush eradicate unwanted frizz so hair is transformed in just a few strokes.

3. BaByliss Big Hair Care Hot Air Styler

This hot brush is more suited for those that lust after a voluminous, bouncy blowdry, rather than a tamed, sleek ‘n’ straight style. The large brush head works better on longer, thicker hair types, lifting the hair and adding a subtle curl to your ‘do. The device carries out a gentle rotating action that takes the stress out of styling for you, while gentle bristles smooth and ease their way through the hair.

4. BaByliss PRO Ionic Airstyler

Another iconic creation from hair styling aficionados, BaByliss! This time, they’re back with a powerful 800W motor and an instant Ionic Conditioning System that styles and dries hair simultaneously. This time, the styler is available in two sizes for different hair types and lengths. The shorter brush makes this device a strong contender for those that want the best hot air brush for short hair.

Our favourite attachments are the two 30mm Airwrap barrels for tight, voluminous curls.
