Most Helpful Positive Review Great Brush!!!
It took a few days for this brush to win me over, but it DID! I bought the gigantic 4.25" one and I LOVE the movement and shine it brings my hair! And the volume is GREAT! I've been using the Spornette Prego 3.5" for the last couple years. The Spornette grabs my hair more easily, but once I got used to this brush, I liked it way better. My hair is shinier and it's gentler on my hair (I find way less hair in the bristles of this brush vs. my Spornette.) I have naturally wavy hair down past my chest and I don't clip it up into sections or anything -- I use about 5 squirts of b&b thickening spray, blow dry it straight with this brush, then finish with b&b brillantine for that cute slept-in look. My secret to blow drying is to start with the brush on top of the hair and blow dry from underneath. I grab sections of my hair with the bristles at the roots, then I pull my hair up and back as I dry it from root to tip. This gives you amazing volume!!! Then when it's almost dry I switch and blow dry normally with the brush underneath the hair and the blow dryer blowing on the hair STRAIGHT down and I'll finish with a cool blast. This part helps combat frizziness. My hair always looks smooth and fabulous! I love this brush!
Most Helpful Critical Review Ouch!
I bought the 1 3/8 and 2 1/8 inch brushes for my thin hair. For the longer parts of my hair, I usually use both hands to role my hair around the brush. My right hand holds the handle of the brush and my left hand guides the tip of the barrel. All of the other Goody brand brushed I have owned in the past have a cool piece of plastic at the end of the bristle barrel that I can touch without burning my fingers. These Olivia Garden brushes don't have that feature. The end of the bristle barrel gets hotter than a curling iron and I have repeatedly burned my fingers. I would not buy this product again. I will stick with the usual Goody brand.

amazing round brush
Amber from VA
olivia garden has some the best brushes out there, they're definitely worth the price. i literally have 7 different brushes of hers (i counted 7 in my head but i might be forgetting 1, so i might even have 8), besides that all the positive reviews speak for themselves. and i've purchased all these brushes within the last year or so, i've never cared to much about brushes until i seen a lot of hair stylists talking about her brushes (this one in particular) and once i got this one i was literally hooked. great brushes!
Best brush ever for long, thick and wavy hair! Buy it!
Jamie from San Antonio TX
My Ulta salon hair dresser used it on my service one day and I was hooked! It has been so easy to use at home with the techniques she taught me. I have very long, thick, wavy hair and before this brush when I would blow dry it would turn into a puffy mess. Not with this brush!! I am able to blow dry, throw a few beach curls in there and I beautiful hair that always gets complemented! I love my Ulta hair dresser and her fabulous recommendation of Oliva's tools!
I would not purchase.
Nala from Miami,Fl.
Bought 2 of these brushes because right size, hard bristle. Blow drying my hair by mistake touched my face with the round top which was extremely hot and got burned.Please be careful when drying your mane .
This brush is the best I have used!
Cat from Texas
I had issues with other round brushes pulling out my hair because of how the handle was attached to the brush, there's always a slight line where they attach the two pieces and my hair gets caught in it and it pulls the hair out, ouch! Not with this brush! The 2 pieces are attached seamlessly! No pulling and beautiful sleek hair results!
For the perfect blowout
Happy Hair from Louisville KY
A quality round brush. By doing small sections of hair at a time with the BioIonic blow dryer, my hair comes out nearly straight. Just takes a little patience and practice to handle a round brush and blow dryer at the same time if you have never done so before. Also had way less shedding with this round brush, which is always good. I got the biggest size ("4-1/4"). I have armpit length hair (when straight). If I were to buy it again I might go down 1 size. Otherwise, it's perfect. It also has a hair pick that you can pull out from the bottom as a plus, didn't really use it yet though.

No breakage and great shine
Gail from Illinois
I tried this brush when I was at my hairstylist and I ran out and bought it that same day for myself. It does a fantastic job of grabbing my hair yet it doesn't tangle it. I am a huge fan!!
andrea0468 from High Point, NC
Why did I wait so long!?! My hairdresser has used this hairbrush for many many years. I finally ordered one for myself and I am just amazed!!! My hair looks like a professional blowout!!! Fantastic!
MrsJPari from 94535
Works great; no issues!
Will buy again in bigger sizes if necessary as my hair grows out!
Waste of my money!
Jules from Maine
I bought this in store. I got I'll and tried to see if I could return it my mail to get a refund. All I got were messages about return policy. I got the 1/2" brush for my 40's style do. Was so excited! It tangled up in my hair badly, straightens it out, and also is too sharp on my scalp. I might have well thrown the money in the street where it would have done someone else good. Hard times to be wasting money during! I have thin hair and this just rips it. Horrible!
I would buy this again & Love it!
Becky from Lexington, KY
My daughters told me to get it after their hairdresser suggested this brush. They loved it & I do too.
Love love love
Ash from California
I have thick curly hair and this brush glides through so smoothly!
4 1/4" Insanely Good!!
cinsta from Massashusetts
The 4 1/4" brush is amazing. My hair dried so quickly and so smooth. It seems like it would be awkward but its the opposite. I've never been great at round brushing but this was so easy!!! It's more like using a vent brush that's round. I got the hang of it right away. I feel like I need a backup of this brush. I never want to be without it!!! Please never stop making this huge awesome brush.
Grabs and holds hair
Elsie from Muskegon MI
The bristles are a good length, close to scalp. They grab and hold hair for drying.
I should have got it sooner
Maggpie from Sandiego
It helps me style my hair without use of a curling iron or flat iron
I now have this brush in 3 different sizes!
MaMaC from Reno,NV
It works to dry my thick hair quickly. My hair doesn't get tangled in the handle.
Good product, not for me though
RoseR. from Boulder, CO
My hair is thin at the top and very thick in the middle and end. This brush was too big for me. It didn't give the the volume at the top but it gave me a lot of volume towards the middle and end which is the opposite of what I was trying to do.
This big brush is great if you have long hair and doesn't mind the big volume towards the middle, not the top of the head. A bit harsh for someone with thin hair.
Best brush for me ever
Joie from Northern CA
This brush works well to style my hair . I have fine straight hair and use the brush to curl it under. I was using velco rollers before and this brush is more even and stays longer and looks better on the following days than the rollers did.
I would buy this brush again
Margie from Antelope, CA
This brush is so easy to handle & I get great results!
Dee from Maine
I love this brush. I have shoulder length, thick hair and it dries faster with this brush. It doesn't frizz and dries smooth.
Great for short hair.
Eileenrn from El Paso, Tx
Works great for short, fine hair like mine.
The small one
Sandragggg from Arizona
It works very good.
Loved it so much, I bought another!
GrisA from FL
I originally bought this for my mom. We blow out our hair atleast 2-3 times a week. Every other brush she's had, breaks or burns in a matter of weeks. I decided to go for a more expensive tool, compared to what we would previously use. I have no regrets. The brush is lightweight and leaves our hair frizz free and shiny. I loved the results so much, I had to buy myself my own brush. I would definitely recommend it!
