Rated 3.96 out of 5 stars
This brush is absolutely amazing. I have NEVER successfully blow dried my hair my entire life until now. I swear by all the dry bar products and I will buy only these products from now on.
P.S the owner of drybar has videos on YouTube that are amazing. I used her products today and used her videos, and my hair has never looked better. Thank you thank you thank you!!!!!
I have long, thick, wavy hair. I blow out my hair when I wash it, every other day. I used another brand of round brush for years and my hair would often get stuck in the brush and pulled out. I love this Drybar Full Pint Brush because it gives my hair great volume and large curls, and my hair does not get caught in it. I wish I could give it 5 stars, however, I have MS and my hands aren't as strong as they used to be, and the handle on the Drybar brush is very slippery and not easy to turn, and it leaves the muscles in my hand sore after I dry my hair. Anyone with any degree of hand disability would find it difficult to hold onto this brush. I would guess that even people with normally functioning hands would find it difficult to hold onto this brush. Drybar should consider making the handle of their brushes easier to grip and turn.

The brush works great for its intent... but it is literally the most uncomfortable, slick handle I've ever had on a brush in my life. It slips from my hands constantly & there's zero cushion on the handle. If you have hardly any hair, doing a blowout with this may be fine. Longer hair: beware. Your hand will be aching.

Not my favorite round brush. The bristles are hard but I love how small it is

This brush is near perfection, but the slim handle makes it hard to grip and use. I have been on the hunt for a round brush with a one piece design - most round brushes have details where the brush head meets the handle and they hair gets caught/snagged in between. As other reviews have pointed out, the handle is slim and it doesn't balance the weight of the brush head well. Since it's slim it's harder to grip and it also is a slippery material so you just can't grip it well.

I've bought so many brushes trying to replace my old one. Long thin hair. Bristles don't scratch me, brush grabs hair, reduces drying time, and is lighter than my last brush.

I wanted to love this brush. I thought I was upgrading and about to enjoy a smoother blow out. The brush does not have grips on the handle so it's difficult to manipulate and slips while turning. It doesn't grip the hair well enough to smooth it. After using it, my hair was frizzy and usually a round brush makes it so I don't need to add additional heat. This was super disappointing and will be returned tomorrow.

I love this brush. I have natural waves and I can make it straight or add more cures with this brush. Kind of pricey but worth it. I love that the bristles are short. It's much easier to use and doesn't tangle in your hair.

It's amazing what you can do with a good quality brush. I've been terrified to try a round brush due to tangles with my long hair but it flowed through my wet hair wonderfully when blow drying.

Loved it. Used one at a salon thought it worked well bought my own.

Worth the money, I love this brush. It gets through the hair and adds volume/shine.

I have a lot of hair. It's very fine. I section it off and this brush changed my blow drying game. I'd say it's more important than the blow dryer I use. I use my blow dryer on LOW speed & medium heat (but you could use higher heat if you want probably? the heat setting is a preference, but I think a low speed is necessary for fine hair or you'll have tangles).
My hair dries so fast now and no longer gets snagged on the brush I use, and I used a lot.
I saw people complaining about the bristles stabbing their scalps which initially made me hesitant about the brush but then in the end I figured, "well I'm probably not going to slap my head with the brush" and you know what, I haven't been attacking my head! So my advice is: Don't put the brush too close to your scalp. This brush isn't meant for your scalp like other soft brushes are. This one is meant for your hair.

So happy with this brush. I am 55 with thinning hair.

The little bristles are a bit to rough for my hair. I have very fine hair but a lot of it and pulling it through it would catch on even the smallest tangle. It's too bad I love the colors.

I have thick, natural curly hair and this brush would not go through it wet or dry. I had to return it.

I was looking for a new round brush since the one I had was too big and was skeptical of spending $36 on a brush. I thought any smaller brush would do. But this was worth it. Doing my hair has never been easier. I can see how this wouldn't really work with people who had thicker hair after reading the reviews. Hasn't been an issue for me since I have finer hair.
Mia from St George
I love the way my hair looks shiny and has a little bit of added bounce however my stylist pointed out that I should look for a brush with a pin on the bottom ( such as Olivia garden brushes) it makes parting WET hair SO much easier! Not happy that this one is double the price with out a simple addition to make time while blow drying cut in half
Denise from MI
I never thought a brush would make a difference. This one does. Got to have the right tools / brush
Juls from Fairfield, CT
Always use this round brush for a blowout that always gives me shiny hair!
Jessica M. from Cleburne, Texas
It cut my drying time in half and leaves my full head of hair light and not frizzy at all! It's a GOD send!
Lexy from Miramar, Florida
First time using it, I noticed how shiny and resonant my hair came out. It's light and the bristles don't hurt your head. Wish it was a little bit bigger but I really noticed how smooth my hair came out
MiniMe from San Antonio
I wasn't expecting much but, I absolutely love this brush. Left my hair amazing!

I was inspired to buy this brush after I had the best blowout ever. I'm definitely not as talented in blowouts as a professional stylist is. If only I was... doing your own blowout takes a lot of time and patience. I was able to do a good job on one side then I got lazy on the other side so it didn't turn out as good.
This brush helped so much, but it is just as good as my other round brush for a lot less.
Kelley from Illinois
The handle on this brush needs to be bigger and easier to control. It is thin and made of a smooth material.
