Flexible ball-tipped nylon bristles set in a random pattern ensures that every hair strand will be brushed. It is a square brush, meaning the sides of the brush are flat, long and straight. This makes it easier for the brush to go through longer hair sections. The bristles of this brush are relatively stiff, in comparison to an oval cushion brush, which helps distribute mousses and gels. The My Favorite Professional Paddle Brush is great for a good brush out, especially for longer hair sections. It has an anti-static wooden paddle.
