According to celebrity hairstylist and Cricket Co. ambassador Melissa Peverini, the number one question clients ask about styling their hair at home is, “which brush and what size is best for my hair style?” Turns out that just as every tool in a toolbox has a purpose, every brush in your vanity has one as well. How do you know if you’re using the right brush? If your blow dries end up the way you desire…and they last! Your hair type matters when it comes to picking out a brush and so does your hair style, as in the type of cut you have. The correct brush will support the way your locks should wear throughout the day. With all that said, we asked Peverini to break down exactly what brushes we should be using to boost the health and look of our manes.
