6 Teasing Brushes For The Easiest Big Hair Ever

by Amber Petty

When you want big hair, nothing works better than a good teasing brush — that's because the best teasing brushes gently grab onto to every stand of hair to create loads of volume and texture. They're great for creating tons of styles, from just a little volume at the roots to super voluminous ponytails.

Teasing brushes work in a similar way as teasing combs, but they're believed to be less damaging. As opposed to teasing combs, which often pull and tear at the hair, the natural bristles of a teasing brush are far more gentle. So, you can create a style that's full of volume with less risk of tearing up your hair.

Since these brushes are a gentler option, they can help you incorporate a little more teasing into your hair routine. Try teasing your roots at the crown of your head for all-day volume that doesn't look unnatural. Or, tease the base of your ponytail to give it a fuller look.

So, start perfecting your technique — and don't forget to get out the hairspray to help your style last all day. Whether you want just a touch of volume or want to go full Dolly Parton, these teasing brushes will make it possible.
