The nanothermic round brush line is now the only ceramic round brush I use on my clients. When combined with a quality turbo/ionic hairdryer, I have a very efficient and effective styling/drying time with all my clients. The handle and centered weight distribution is great for control and much more ergonomic to use than any other round brush I've used. Plus, the added textured bristles help smooth the hair so I VERY rarely go back in with a flat iron. ***CONSUMER BEWARE: Now, as much as I LOVE these brushes for myself and other stylists, I only recommend the brush for my clients after I've properly taught them how to hold and manipulate the brush (see product suggestions)
While this brush is very good it is also very dangerous. The top of the brush bows out and is plated in fake gold. This plating heats up within a minute of dryer and becomes very hot. When trying to brush hair underneath by the neck it brushes against the neck (barely) and burns. The burn so fast has lasted 4 days. Do not buy unless they fix the top.

I've tried round brushes before but I'm just not that coordinated and had a hard time using them on my long hair. I got the 3 1/4" and it was a game changer. I don't have to straighten my hair after anymore and it looks smooth and voluminous. The only downside is the rubber handle, when you're spinning it some hair inevitably gets caught and ripped out. A smoother or wooden handle would be the only thing that could make this product better.

After a really bad hair cut (NOT at Ulta) that resulted in too short hair, I needed a smaller round brush (I have s larger one in this same line for use with longer hair that I love).

My other round brushes eventually break because hair gets stuck between brush and handle. I looked up reviews before buying it, while l was at Ulta store. I used the brush, it was really lightweight and my hair did not get tangled. I would recommend this brush.

I used this brush twice. The second time it broke at the handle. The whole top came off.

Used to dry hair and add volume- beat brush ever! Pro tip from my stylist!

I am very glad I bought this size, after my hair stylist recommended this brand. I have not had the problem of the rubber handle catching my hair. Perhaps because it's the bigger brush? I am using it for a smoother straighter look as my hair tends to have a bit of wave. It does really seem to reduce the drying time too. The bristles are somewhat soft & I like that.

My hair dress uses this on me and I could not get the same effect at home. So I bought my own and love it!

I can't believe the end of this brush got SO hot that it burned my neck!
I've been blow drying my thick wavy hair my entire life never has a brush burned me!!
The irony is the amount of research I did before buying this brush and the fact this is the most I've ever paid for a styling hair brush.
I really hope I'll be able to return it when I go to the store with my pics & complaint.

I generally never spent a lot on brushes but after reading reviews, decided to give a more expensive brush a try. It doesn't quite give the the volume that I'm accustomed to with my previous brushes but adds more of a "soft volume" to my style and tames my flyaways. My hair feels very soft, looks like I just came from salon. I also like the rubberized grip. Very pleased with this brush.

I have fine, thin hair, so I appreciate any volume I can get and try to keep my use of curling irons and straighteners to a minimum. This brush is absolutely amazing. My hair dries in about half the usual time when using this brush with my blow dryer, and it adds a perfect amount of volume. My hair is right at chin length and this brush works great!

I purchased a larger Nanothermic awhile ago for my hair drying. With this smaller barrel I achieve a salon look and finish with the right amount of curl for my fine hair. My beauty routine just got shorter with this brush!

This is the first brush set I've purchased since the drugstore round brushes. I have a lot of hair and it's curly/ beach waves, takes time and energy to dry straight. While I liked all other aspects of these brushes, the silver metal dome came in contact with my cheek briefly~ I now have a scar. Not cool! From reading other reviews it seems there are many ladies walking wounded from similarly placed burns; face, neck, shoulder. I will be returning them for a refund.

This is the first non-drugstore quality hairbrush I've used, and I'm so glad I decided to spend a bit more than usual on a brush. If I have my hair done, my hairdresser is able to dry my hair smooth by taking the time to separate it and dry in sections with a round brush. I don't take that kind of time to section my hair at home, so I always have some frizzy ends, especially in the back where I can't reach well. My hair was not frizzy after using this brush, and I did not dry it in sections, just the way I normally do. It seemed to cut the drying time down a bit as well. With my old brush, when I would grab the hair around my crown to dry through, my hair would often get caught/tangled in the bristles, but my hair slid through smoothly with this brush. I did see another review that said the tip gets really hot, so I had that in mind when using it. I did touch the end of the brush when I was done, and it was warm after about 10 minutes or so drying on high heat. It wasn't so hot that it could leave a mark, but I imagine it would have startled me a bit had it slipped and touched my face. I would be cautious of that, especially if you spend longer than I did drying your hair, but the brush works great. I plan to buy another size.

My hairdresser uses it and it has a spike "for lack of a better word" that comes out of the handle and attaches to the handle so you can lift and separate your hair more easily.

I had a larger size brush and loved it so well that I got a smaller one

It's soo good I've never blow dried my hair this fast before! And it leaves your hair feeling glossy and healthy too!
Juli from New York
This is the most amazing round brush. I have thick curly hair and after using it, my hair feels silky and smooth. It looks like I went to the salon to get it blown out. I'm just amazed!

I love love love these brushes. I have the very large one and the 3.75 brush. The bristles hold my hair in place and are soft enough that they don't tear up my scalp. Very heat resistant. I've had one brush for over two years and it's still working great. I have a Conakr round brush and a boar hair bristle small round brush from Aveda and they arnt even in the same league as this round brush. I love blowing out my hair because it will last me around 3 days. The vents in this brush are diamond shape and help speed up the drying time. Please don't use a conair blow dryer and expect Drybar results. Invest in something that emits ions, do your shopping around. It maybe a bit pricey up front but it's totally worth it when you consider the cut down time on drying. You'll feel great after every blow dry too! Handle is very comfortable and it comes with a pick to separate your hair.
I see comments of people complaining that the brush isn't holding their hair. Remember to section your hair and maybe only dry about 3 inches wide and maybe a inch thick. Maybe less if you're not as experienced.
