John Frieda Hot Air Brush Model JFHA5R

$39.99, Walgreens

Why we like it:

  • 2 heat settings & cool shot setting
  • Gives you a safe, even heat
  • 500 watts of power

The John Frieda hairdryer brush is made from titanium ceramic coated barrel that ensures a safe and even heat without any risk of damaging the hair. This airbrush also features two heating settings, plus a cool shot to lock your style in place.

One reviewer wrote: “I am thrilled with it as I never blow-dried my hair due to being completely inept at handling a hairbrush in one hand and blow dryer in the other. The hairdresser would show me but I still couldn’t do it. I absolutely love this product and for the first time can style and blow dry my hair.”

Drybar Double Shot Dryer Brush

$150.00, Macy’s

Why we like it:

  • Combination of nylon and tufted bristles
  • Strategically placed vents
  • Ergonomic, lightweight handle

Lightweight, well-made, and capable of performing miracles, this hairdryer brush has vents places accordingly to maximize airflow for a rapid blowout. Plus, it uses nylon and tufted bristles which allow full control and tension when styling your hair.

One reviewer wrote: I ordered this after seeing several ads from a competitor. It dried my hair in less than five minutes and it looked like a blowout from my salon. My hair is naturally course and frizzy but turned out so smooth and soft I didn’t have to use my flat iron. This product was also more lightweight than my GHD dryer. My new must-have hair product.”

Pro Collection Salon 2 In 1 One-Step Hair Dryer and Volumizer Oval Brush

$38.50, Walmart

Why we like it:

  • 1000 Watt of Drying Power
  • 3 Heat Settings
  • Mixed Bristles. Brush is designed with Nylon Pin and Tufted Bristles
  • Unique Airflow Vents

This affordable hairdryer brush has three heat settings for styling flexibility. The oval brush design shape smooths the hair, and the edges help promote volume. The dryer is powerful without causing damage to the hair.

One reviewer wrote: “I’m loving this dryer. I can do without all my round brushes now. This gets in and under all my hair and lifts, smooths, and shapes as it dries. Cuts drying and styling time in half. Also great for morning touch-ups when I don’t wash my hair. Just gets a little hot on the tip when I try to touch it to guide positioning. The swivel cord keeps maneuvering simple. It is a little on the bulky side, but so worth it! I may have to get 2 more as gifts for my long-haired daughters.”

Revlon One-Step Hair Dryer and Styler, Black

$36.98, Walmart

Why we like it:

  • 2 heat settings
  • IONIC Technology
  • 1100 Watt of Drying Power

This affordable alternative hairdryer brush and styler has two heat settings and 1100 watt of drying power. It also features IONIC Technology, meaning it uses negative ions to saturate the airflow. This conditions the hair and leaves a smooth and shiny texture while simultaneously reducing frizz and static.

One reviewer wrote: “I have used this hairdryer and styler now for several weeks. It dries your hair perfectly and is no louder than a normal hairdryer. The nice thing about it is that you don’t need a dryer in one hand and a brush in the other. If you like the “straight” look style, then this is for you. The head of the unit does get warm to the touch but does not burn. The bristles of the brush are very gentle on the scalp. The dryer brush unit has three settings – cool, low and high. The high setting is for thicker hair, the low setting is for thinner hair and the cool setting is for setting your style.”

Dyson Airwrap Complete Styler-For Multiple Hair Types and Styles

$549.99, Ulta

Why we like it:

  • 1.2 inch and 1.6 inch Airwrap barrels
  • Firm and soft smoothing brushes
  • Round volumizing brush
  • Pre-styling dryer

The Dyson hairdryer brush is engineered for almost all hair types and styles, so you can curl, smooth, and dry with no extreme heat, limiting the risk of heat-damage. With the different attachments, air styling, and the Dyson digitalized motor, it’s easy to see why this is the Cadillac of hairdryer brushes. Bonus: It comes in a handy storage box, ideal for small bathrooms or traveling.

One reviewer wrote: “I have very curly, frizzy, and thick hair. I find it easier to just style my hair every day because it’s easier to maintain and I’m not a huge fan of my natural hair. I use to blow dry my hair with a round brush for 30+ minutes and then go in with a straightener or curling wand. With the air wrap, I can dry and style at the same time! It saves me so much time!! It takes some getting used to but I say if you style your hair a lot like I do this tool is 100% worth it.”
