Women want to have great hairstyles that will fit their everyday mood. One tool that can produce some really trendy hair styles is the Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Styling brush.
The Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Brush is a slick and compact hair dryer / hair styling tool combo. It is basically a round brush that is attached to a blow dryer so you can straighten and curl your hair conveniently with one hand. Your free hand comes in handy to guide your hair as this hair tool brushes through and untangles and dries your hair.
How It Works
The Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Styling brush can be used for both styling and straightening. If you want to use the Vidal Sassoon Air Brush as a hair dryer / relaxer, simply brush through your hair. The blow dryer function has a high and low heat setting that will blow through the holes in the barrel of the round brush to give your hair a comfortable dry.
If you don’t want to straighten your hair and would just like to use the blow drying function of your Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Brush, unlock the barrel of the round brush and allow it to rotate freely as you brush through your hair. Brushing through with a loose rotating round brush will put zero stress on your hair roots.
If you want to us it as a Vidal Sassoon Curling Brush, simply brush through a batch of hair strands from the roots going to the tip. Set the air brush from underneath the strands of hair if you want to curl them going in. On the other hand, if you want to make that batch of hair to flare out, set the brush on top.
Once the brush are at the tips of your hair, lock the barrel and twist the brush and let your hair coil on the barrel. Hold it for a few seconds while the heat from the blower sets the curls. Then, release the lock and brush through.
To have an easier time in curling, you can organize your hair into small sections around and on top. Use a bob pins to keep them in place while you work form one section to another.
The barrel of the brush is only one inch in diameter so it can provide a good enough curl and great volume. The release button for the brush’s barrel is a very good feature because it prevents the incidence of having your hair entangled in the bristles and relieves the scalp and hair roots of stress from all the pulling and curling.
The bristle tips never get hot. They are always cool so they won’t burn and hurt your scalp as you style and dry your hair. Now, this is a very important feature because the worst thing that you would like to avoid is burn your hair and scalp. Bristles that get too hot could be on the verge of melting and you don’t want plastic melting on your hair and scalp as that would create serious problems. With the bristle, especially the tips constantly cool; it gives you the confidence to use the Vidal Sasson VS433C Tangle-Free Hot Air Brush Styler and Dryer for as long as you need to.
The brush is removable from the main body making it safe and easy to clean. As you style, the brush can collect all the dirt and oil from your hair. Like the ordinary brush, your brush attachment has to be thoroughly cleaned after a few days of usage. Being able to detach it from the motor unit gives you the opportunity to clean it thoroughly like any other ordinary brush.
The Vidal Sassoon Curling Brush has a safety plug that will automatically turn off way before it reaches the point of overheating. If the hair dryer is overheated, it is not only damaging to the unit, it can create electrical problems as well. Though the bad practice of extended use of any heating gadget is a fact most women with experience in using hair curlers and hair dryers are aware of, it is still a very stress-relieving feature to have. The 1.8 meter plug provides you with a lot of room for freedom and great maneuverability.
The non-slip handle is comfortable to grip and gives you more control for easy styling. Perhaps the best feature of the Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Brush is its price. Other brands and versions of the hair dryer / styler may have several other features but we are talking about a Vidal Sassoon product here. It’s a shock how such a branded product can cost so low.
- The Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Styling brush needs occasional cleaning with a toothpick or anything small that can fit through the holes. This is a slight inconvenience but, there is much value to these small dirt-accumulating holes. They are one of the factors that prevent the Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Brush from overheating.
- The Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Styling Brush will only be effective in curling hairstyles of up to shoulder length. If you have long hair, whether thick or thin, the brush’s bristles can no longer accommodate them when your curl the entire length in. the hair coiled in the brush will already be too thick for the heat of the blow dryer to create any setting effect.
- While keeping them longer on the curl for longer setting is an option, it is not a safe option as the strands closest to the air holes will be burned with that extended exposure to the hot air from the blow dryer.
- The Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Brush has a shorter warranty than other brands. It only has a one year warranty. But, most customer reviews said that their Vidal Sassoon Hot Air Styling brush has remained as functional as when they were brand new even after several years of daily use.

Let’s put it this way, if you are looking for a handy, convenient no-fuss hairstyling tool that’s from a well known brand and is reasonably priced then you should get the Vidal Sasson VS433C Tangle-Free Hot Air Brush Styler and Dryer.
