Hot air brushes that feature 110v to 240v universal voltage could work not only in the USA but also in Europe and some other countries. But keep in mind that you will probably need a plug-in adaptor for the power socket in the country you’re going to.

Actually, you could purchase the brush in that very country so that there will be no problems with voltage, adaptors or transformers. These boring technical features might ruin your holiday if some problems with a tool arise.

Secondly, let’s talk about main features of the hot air brush. Which one to choose depends on your hair length, texture, and general state. For instance, the longer your curls are, the bigger the brush barrel should be.

If you have short hair, it could only be styled with a small barrel brush. On the contrary, the big central cylinder of the brush makes styling long locks faster and easier. Intensity and speed of the brush are the other crucial features that should be considered.

Pay attention to the materials of the brush as well. As far as I know, ceramic and tourmaline are said to be the best coatings for the brush barrel. They not only give you smooth and glossy locks but also reduce static electricity, seal hair cuticles and prevent the ends from splitting. One of the main problems with the hot air brush is that hair may get stuck in its bristles. To avoid this unpleasant situation, I would recommend you to choose from models with anti-static tangle-free bristles.

Obviously, there are so many hot air brushes available on the market that choosing the right one may seem almost impossible. Here are 10 most popular hot air brushes of this year, take a look!

Good news! There are 3 hot air brushes, that can be safely used all over the globe: Conair Instant Heat Hot Curl Brush, Conair Supreme 2-in-1 Hot Air Styling Brush, Conair Curling Brush (1.5 inches) Dual Voltage. They feature dual voltage (110 V and 240 V), so you can use them outside the US without a power adaptor. But keep in mind that you will probably need a plug-in adaptor for the power socket in the country you’re going to.
