My hairstylist recommended this 1.75 inch round brush because the ceramic core is supposed to help quickly style hair as you dry it, and help the style to hold all day. I was a bit skeptical, since my hair sometimes seems to have a mind of its own, but this brush really does make styling my hair faster and easier, and the results do last all day long.
The handle of the brush is comfortable to hold, and the bristles don't generate a lot of static or leave me with a head full of tangles.
Another cool feature of this brush is the retractable pick in the bottom of the brush's handle. It comes in quite handy when I want to section pieces of my hair as I dry it, or part my hair as I style it.
Although $24.00 seemed a bit steep for a brush, I am glad I took my stylist's advice...this brush is well worth its price.
