One Step Hot Air Brush, $29.99, from Amazon
This pink and black brush has three different speeds, making for a quick and simple blowdry that gives you salon-level volume. Using ionic technology, the brush releases negative ions to saturate airflow, reducing the size of water droplets for faster drying, and creating a smooth, shiny look for your hair. While it’s down the cheaper end of the scale, the One Step brush is often compared to one released by Revlon and has been claimed to be of a similar level of quality.

With a 38mm barrel and two speed and heat settings, this one is great if you don’t have piles of hair and sectioning to get through. It’s powered by a 1000-watt high efficiency motor, meaning you can speed through the styling and get your blowdry done in minutes.

Hot Tools Black Gold Volumiser, $149, from Adore Beauty
As great as hot air brushes are, there’s no denying they’re kind of hefty and annoying to store, which is why we love this one from Hot Tools. It has a large detachable barrel, so you can give yourself that professional bounce, then take the brush apart and pop it away effectively. The nifty detachable feature aside, this brush promises to reduce frizz with its ionic technology and charcoal activated bristles for minimal tangling.
Babyliss Pro Rotating Hot Air Brush, $144.46, from Oz Hair & Beauty
Variety? We love it! This hot air brush comes with detachable barrels – plural – one that’s 40mm and one that’s 50mm, meaning you can alter the overall shape of your hair or your curl. And the best part? It rotates itself, so you don’t even have to perfect the wrist-flick to give yourself those perfect ‘Jen Aniston in Friends’ bend at the end of your locks. It also has two-way direction control, so you can alternate the rotations for the perfect head of tumbling waves.
