    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

    The John Frieda Hot Air Brush is easier to use than a blow dryer and a regular brush. It leaves my hair shiny with few fly-aways.

    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

    I like this product, but hair should be nearly dry. Use a small section of hair at a time. With my thick hair, it takes too long if my hair is too damp.
    The biggest con is that the heat switch is hard to move with one finger, so switching from hot to cool to set the curl is sometimes a challenge.
    The smaller diameter brush offers quite a curl.

    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

    I have short, thin, fine hair and a curling brush works really well for me. It's easiest, get the most volume and I only have one tool, not a brush, dryer etc. I can get static easy but it seems to be minimal with this brush.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      This is my favorite hair styling tool. It's so much easier to use than a brush and a blow dryer for me, and I don't need to use a flat iron or hair curler when using it. My hair dries pretty quick with this, but my hair is also fairly short. I love this hot air brush!

      I love the bristles for my fine hair. My only dislike is the handle is slick and hard to hold on to while turning in my hand. It needs some kind of rubber grip area to make it easier to hold onto.

      This is a great styling tool product. Instead of using a brush and blow dryer to style, all you need is John Frieda.

      In control button is flat, at first hard to use. You get use to it. Still a great product.

          Sturdier than most hot air brushes. Could stand to be a litter hotter, and a little stronger air to cut down on dry time. Grips hair well.

            Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

            then this is the hot air brush for you! I LOVE this thing! It is officially my new best friend. I tried the Revlon hot air brush and the different connectors wouldn't stay on and it was super loud. I traded it for this hot air brush and I'm so glad I did! With this I get a silky, shiny blow out in one easy step. Even better this dries my hair quickly. Now instead of taking 45 minutes to dry my hair and then another 30 or so to flat iron it, my hair is dry and styled in 35-40 minutes. LOVE IT!

              Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

              Like a couple other reviewers, I just am not coordinated enough to recreate the style I leave the salon with using a separate blow dryer and brush. This works great, and I love it. Just remember to go slowly and work in small sections and your hair will be dry when you're done. My only complaint isn't actually the fault of the product - it must have been a return or on display or something, because when I got it home there was already hair in the bristles. That grossed me out a little, but I cleaned it instead of driving clear back to the store. Ulta, take note - if someone returns a product, check it before you put it back on the shelf! It seems to be working fine, though.

                  Yes! The John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush (model JFHA6) has a 1 in. ceramic titanium coated barrel that is ideal for adding gorgeous volume and shine to most hair lengths. This barrel size is very versatile and works very well on shorter hair lengths. We recommend blow drying hair using a hair dryer to rough-dry your hair first and remove the excess moisture. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using the hot air brush. We recommend you use the low heat setting for styling and the cool setting to set the style for long-lasting results. Start at the ends and use 1 in. sections of hair to prevent tangling.

                  The John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush is not dual voltage. You will need a voltage converter and an adapter to fit the foreign electric wall outlet.

                I have naturaly curly hair, but looking for a wand/hot brush that I can use for second day hair (no wash) to acheive a wavy look. My curls are usually 'messy' second day so I'd like to brush my hair out, then use something to do quick wavy look. Will this brush do that?

                  The John Frieda Hot Air Brush is best used for adding volume and shine to your hair. This hot air styler eliminates the need to use a brush. The anti-frizz ionic generator and gentle air allow you to quickly smooth out frizz and style while adding natural waves and body to your hair. It's the perfect tool for in between washes.

                  You can also look at the BC178OMB 2" hot air styler with spin brush action to let the tool do all the styling for you in one easy step leaving your hair silky smooth with waves and extra body. The ionic frizz fighting feature makes hair more manageable, healthy-looking and shiny.

                  If you are looking for a natural wavy look, we recommend using one of our larger barrel curling wands, Conair You Curl Styling Wand XL! The tapered barrel goes from 1 ¼" to ¾" so it's the perfect tool for creating full, natural waves! The You Curl Styling Wand XL uses advanced silicone technology and has unique nonslip strips that gently grip and guide hair over barrel for effortless styling. In an effort to keep your naturally curling hair frizz-free, this styler's tourmaline ceramic barrel coating helps protect your hair while instantly smoothening for long lasting results. Pro Styling Tip: if you want to add even more volume/body, once you are done curling your hair with the wand, gently brush your hair with a cushion brush – our recommendation, the Tourmaline Gel Grip Oval Cushion Brush!

                  A:

                  There are 2 heat settings, plus a cool setting on the JFHA5R. The high heat setting is ideal for initial drying; however, since you have very long hair, you may find it quicker and easier to use a hair dryer first to rough-dry your hair and remove the excess moisture. Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using the hot air brush. We recommend you use the low heat setting for styling and the cool setting to set the style for long-lasting results. Start at the ends and use 1 in. sections of hair to prevent tangling.

                  Prior to using Salon Shape Hot Air Brush, we recommend blow drying hair using a dryer such as Full Volume Hair Dryer (Item #: 2234247). Once the hair is 80% dry, you should start to create your style using the Salon Shape Hot Air Brush.
