Level Up Your At-Home Blowouts With These 10 Reviewer-Loved Round Brushes

The power of a fresh blowout can not be understated. In fact, there’s an entire episode of New Girl dedicated to the concept of a post-blowout confidence boost. But with an average price tag of about $50, most of us can’t afford to hit the salon every time we want to look our best. Thankfully, there’s an economical alternative: do your hair at home with the help of a blowout brush

If you want your strands to look effortlessly smooth, then a large round brush is essential to the process. When used in tandem with a blow dryer, it's the perfect tool for boosting volume and shine, speeding up dry time, and creating silky-straight strands or big, beachy waves.

Sounds great, right? However, finding the right round brush means combing through (pun intended) hundreds of options on the internet, so to save you some time and trouble, we put together a list of the 10 best round brushes money can buy below.

Here’s How Our Top 10 Lists Work

Our mission is to help you make informed shopping decisions, which is why each of our Top 10 lists is curated with the help of our ranking algorithm. This tool uses reviews, best-seller lists, and social media to find and score products in a given category. Ahead, you’ll discover which blowout brushes were deemed the best by our algorithm, and we’ve got a good feeling there’s at least one that can help you achieve a salon-quality style from the comfort of your home.

Best For Fine Hair

THE SPECS
This best-selling round brush from Bio Ionic combines the smoothing powers of a paddle brush with the shaping capabilities of a round hairbrush. Reviewers praise it for its square shape, saying that it helped alleviate the challenges of maneuvering the brush while styling their hair.

Due to its extra large size, Bio Ionic’s BlueWave Round Brush is best for fine hair. The large size of the barrel helps add volume to your strands, but if you’re looking for another option, the good news is that they also carry a variety of brushes in smaller sizes.

USER REVIEW
“I have long, thin hair that tangles up a lot (and I mean a lot), but this brush allows me to untangle it without pulling out my hair. I just lost my brush, so I came here to order another one. Can't live without this brush!”

Best For Curly Hair

THE SPECS
Perfect for medium-length hair, Moroccanoil’s 55 mm Round Brush is crafted with a ceramic barrel and ionic properties. That means faster drying time, shinier hair, and less heat damage. Bonus: This blowout brush comes with a secret sectioning tool that’s stored inside the handle. 

USER REVIEW
“I purchased this brush after my stylist used it on my freshly cut hair. I have very curly hair, and I straighten it daily. I have never before had such perfect results with a round brush! It is truly my most favorite brush ever. I highly recommend it.”


GHD Ceramic Vented Radial Brush

Best For Flat Hair

THE SPECS
Undoubtedly one of the best round brushes for blowouts, GHD’s Ceramic Vented Radial Brush has amassed a following for its ability to blow dry hair quickly. Designed to give your roots a lift, this brush proves that more volume does not mean less definition.

Olivia Garden NanoThermic Ceramic + Ion Round Thermal Hair Brush

Best Overall

THE SPECS
Introducing the internet’s best blowout brush. Olivia Garden’s NanoThermic Ceramic + Ion Round Thermal Hair Brush is endorsed by stylists all over the country (at least, that seems to be the case based on reviews). With extra large vents on the barrel, a “snag guard,” and an ergonomic handle, this brush is as innovative as it is effective. 

USER REVIEW
Out of the nearly 5,000 5-star reviews for this round hair brush, this one caught our attention: “I kid you not, this brush has made ALL the difference in the world! My hair has never been as shiny and soft as it has been the past two times I've used it. I've only had it for a week, and I'm in LOVE. I cannot say enough good things about this brush. If you're considering it, consider no more! Just get it! It's SO gentle on your hair, and it really works amazingly well.”
