Need a Hand?

If blow-drying your hair leaves you feeling like you’re all thumbs, there’s help for you in the form of the Parlay Blowout Brush. It features a handy clamp, similar to a curling iron, that holds your hair in curl mode while you blow it out.

Available in sizes S (1-1/4”) through XL (2-1/4”), $49 to $58. The smaller sizes create curl and volume while the larger sizes straighten hair.

How does it work? First, grab a section of hair near the roots with the clamp. Then pull the brush through the hair as you blow dry; when you reach the end, roll the brush back up towards the roots and continue to blow-dry. It’s that easy. Sometimes the simple solutions are the best.
