    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

    I have shorter layered hair that I wear in an unstructured style. I thought it would give my hair a soft wispy look but it was difficult to use and the end was hot so I had trouble securing it.

      Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

      I love this hot air brush. I have very fine hair and need to add lift. I use to use a seperate brush and hair dryer, not always the easiest to have both hands going and one side turned out better than the other. This brush is one handed, bristles are soft on your head and doesn't take any longer to dry my hair than before. I love the various temperature settings. I use the high for initial start of drying my hair, then the lower temp. as it's mostly dry, then the cool setting to set the style. My hair looks fuller now, and a coworker commented that my hair looked shinier and she didn't know I had changed styling tools! I can't say enough how this tool has changed my hair for the better.

          I purchased this product after reading many reviews and boy am I glad!!! This hot air brush takes all the work out of a typical blow out, it is much easier to work with than having to struggle with a hair dryer in one hand and a round brush in the other. I have received many compliments on my hair since I have started to use this. The first time I used it the girls at work commented on how full and smooth my hair looked, I am extremely happy with this product.

            Only gets lukewarm and high is not very high so it takes forever to style with slightly damp hair.

              Just about the only "less expensive" hot air brush with accessories is brand commonly found with few brand choices. VERY loud - It hurts my ears on high speed!!!! This one works well to style when I air dry my hair partially, turn my head upside down & finish drying then style. 2 quiet speeds. Ionic keeps hair from losing moisture. Light & perfect for my fine curly hair - medium thick. Gonna toss the other brand.

                    Comments about John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush:

                    My hair has a slight natural wave to it, although nothing that looks nice if I don't style it. I would always look forward to getting my hair cut at Ulta due to getting a Blowout with it. I saw this on sale & thought after reading the reviews I would give it a try.
                    Best decision ever. You have to blowdry your hair until it's still damp & then all you do it use it as you would a round brush. So much easier than trying to use a round bruch & blow dryer at the same time. My hair has a curl/wave to it that I have gotten many compliments on. And it takes about the same time as it would to flat iron it. My hair is shoulder length.

                        The John Frieda Salon Shape Hot Air Brush does not spin. If you are looking for a rotating hot air brush, you can try the John Frieda Rotating Hot Air Brush (Ulta Sku #2288267). The barrel reaches approximately 167 degrees F and the hot air temperature reaches 212 degrees F.

                        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.

                        A:

                        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.
